We're very fortunate to have stayed in many B&B's both in the USA and overseas. I really can't recall another one that we enjoyed as much as we did our stay here. The hosts, Dave and Becky, were professional and kind. The breakfasts were not only prepared well, using local fresh ingredients, but were beautiful in their presentation. When served they provided a nice explanation of the ingredients. The bedroom was gorgeous with views of the bay, the bathroom large and sunny. Coffee and teas in the room and water and sodas to take with us during the day, and cakes and cookies when we returned at the end of the day. We even had songbirds in the morning as we forced ourselves to roll out of the comfy bed. We recommend the Blue Goose Inn most highly.
We had a wonderful visit to Whidbey Island and the Blue Goose Inn was our home away from home in the charming town of Coupeville! We enjoyed everything about our visit. The Blue Goose has been very tastefully updated and we loved our room and bathroom. We stayed in the Penn Cove Suite. We had plenty of room and had everything that we needed. The breakfast each day was amazing. Becky is an incredible cook and made everything from scratch. We loved that so much of what she serves is grown or raised locally. She and her husband, Dave, genuinely care about all of their guests, their inn and their community. There is so much pride of ownership that is evident in all they do. We loved everything on the island from the beaches, restaurants, state parks and Deception Point. Thank you Becky and Dave! We recommend The Blue Goose Inn to anyone who wants to step out of the crazy world and truly relax.
Becky and David were exceptional hosts. They provided car service pickup from the SeaTac Whidbey Shuttle stop. A very warm and informative reception with explanation of all services and amenities. The room was beautifully appointed with very comfortable bed, spacious sittimg area and lots of natural light. Felt very much at home. But the highlight is Becky's awesome breakfasts. Well balanced, very tasty, locally sourced, and nearly everything was homemade from the hand churned butter, homemade hand ground wheat bread, homemade sauces and condiments- no two breakfasts were the same- and, made with lots of love. Have already booked again for next year. It is a very special experience. Highly recommended.
We have stayed in a number of "historical houses" used as B&B's in the past. This is the best by far. Our room was spacious, quiet, extremely well appointed and upgraded without detracting from the ambience. Becky and Dave are super hosts, helping to set a mood and experience which was fun, relaxing and friendly. The breakfast was incredible with delicious original recipes incorporating local products. All in all it, was an experience we know we will want to repeat.
Prepare to be spoiled for other inns. From the first greeting to the final "see you soon" Becky & Dave make sure you have everything you need for a wonderful visit. We have stayed enough times to experience all seven rooms. They are all comfortable, spotlessly maintained and uniquely decorated. The breakfasts at Blue Goose are what other inns aspire to. Homemade butter, jams, baked goods and cooked dishes are made from local Whidbey Island ingredients. The inn is within easy walking distance of Coupeville's historic pier and downtown area. Many of the rooms offer views of Penn Cove. It just doesn't get any better than this.
We booked prior to a trip through Washington and were pleasantly susprprised upon our arrival. We stayed I the Garden Room which is small compared to the other available rooms but was all we needed for a very comfortable night. It is obvious the owners David and Becky take pride in their business and do the little things that make a stay so enjoyable. The rooms are very clean, beds comfortable and bedding is very high quality. The common area's are available for use in both houses and contain authentic tasteful Vitorian decor. Drinking wine and playing chess in one of these common area's is how we passed some of our free time. The house is only a couple of blocks from the waterfront and historic Main Street. To cap off a wonderful night we were served an incredible breakfast. This is not your typical B&B morning food. The breakfast was something you would get in a fine restaurant. Our only disappointment was that we could only stay one night!
My husband and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary by staying at the Blue Goose Inn. We had a wonderful stay and were treated like royalty! I can't eat wheat and they were very accommodating of that fact, making gluten-free cookies for me and making sure my meals were safe. And they were fantastic breakfasts! Lovely room with a claw foot bath tub and bay window. Lovely yard with deer passing through. A very pretty, peaceful place to stay. We will definitely be back!
We enjoyed a relaxing weekend at the Blue Goose Inn. Our room was large, with king size bed, tub for two, vintage furniture, wi-fi, cable tv etc. The homemade breakfast, made with obvious culinary skill by Becky, was varied and delicious. After the first breakfast, I couldn't wait for the second. The first focused on courses with a sweet flair, the second on courses with a savory bent. To-die-for! Cookies, cake, and beverages were always available for a snack. This was a really first class experience with attention to detail.
Becky and Dave are wonderful hosts at this charming Bed and Breakfast. They have truly put their heart and sould into the Blue Goose Inn! My stay was very brief and I was sad that I did not have the time to peruse the houses and the town more. It was a happy accident that I came across Blue Goose reviews and thought I would give it a try. Breakfast was delicious and served with a flair. I will definitely be back!
I had visited Whidbey Island and Blue Goose Inn 6 months ago. The stay was so enjoyable that I decided to share it with family members. BGI is almost like returning home but more elegant. Becky & Dave were warm, welcoming and helpful as before. Their attention to detail has spoiled me for other B&Bs. Thank you both and see you again!
Friendly, congenial and helpful hosts, Becky and Dave, provided a delightful, convenient and memorable base from which to explore Whidbey Island. The Blue Goose B&B proved clean, comfortable and convenient. Breakfasts were beyond expectations with delicious, creative, and imaginative menus to kick-start the day. I highly recommend the Blue Goose run by this hard-working, conscientious team.
We stayed at Whidbey island for only 1 night at the Blue Goose B & B. Becky and Dave are the newest innkeepers but they kept the books from years ago and we added our compliments on the large Bell Tower Room with a working claw foot bathtub! The breakfast was delicious and plentiful with homemade croissants, jams, and condiments. They also left out homemade cookies, breads, coffee and tea in the reception area for all. We liked the additional refrigerator stocked with waters and beverages upstairs. Thanks, Becky and Dave, for making our stay wonderful and giving us helpful tips on restaurants and local walks and drives. We will be back and liked the convenience to walk to historic Coupeville.
We had an enjoyable time watching the fireworks from our room and a beautiful fireplace (no heat, thank goodness). I know that our schedule in a little out of sync but I've never gotten a reaction from an inkeeper before. Not as warm as other inkeepers I have come across :( The continental breakfast was delivered to the door and delicious! Would stay there again if the inkeepers were warmer people after all this is the hospitality business. Also for two rooms the refrigerator had only enough snacks for two people out of four staying up there. PS the hall window needs dusting, a couple of spider webs. I wouldn't let that keep me though. We enjoyed the fireworks for 2.5 hours. Like I say our only complaint was the lack of warmth from the inkeepers, otherwise everything was excellent.Hard to rate the dining score when we didn't eat there.
We had a wonderful stay at the Blue Goose Inn this past weekend! The houses are quaint, clean and very convenient. Becky and Dave were wonderful, warm hosts, and the breakfast was delicious! We really enjoyed getting to know the other guests at breakfast and exploring Whidbey Island. Thanks for a great getaway!
We had the opportunity to stay with Becky and Dave at the Blue Goose Inn on May 17, 2014 We found them to be both hospitable and friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. they are yu feel comfortable and they served a great breakfast. We would recommend to our friends J & M for Vancouver Canada
The innkeepers, Becky and Dave, are completely gracious and helpful. The two historic Victorian style houses are lovely and comfortable, surrounded by exquisite gardens with ample seating for outside viewing. I hope to return.
This was our first time at a Bed and Breakfast. We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend. The room was very clean. We LOVED the steam shower! They went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. I would highly recommend.
We stayed one night and were very pleased with the room and the service. Our room was very clean and the bed was wonderful. Becky and David cooked a wonderful breakfast for us and we very much enjoyed our conversation with them. We would recommend the Blue Goose Inn to anyone that wants to step back in time and enjoy the comforts and beauty of years ago.
Located in the quaint village of Coupville on beautiful Whidby Island, the Blue Goose Inn offers a charming and relaxed haven for the traveller. The Inn, situated within walking distance of "downtown" Coupville, consists of two Victorian era houses, both filled with beautiful period furniture and accessories. Everything is clean and meticulously maintained by owners Dave and Becky who truly go out of their way to make their guests feel comfortable and welcome. On our arrival we were greeted by hosts Dave and Becky and the wonderful aroma of jam making , wafting from the kitchen. Coffee, tea and homemade treats were available at any time ( we highly recommend the brownies and chocolate chip cookies). We stayed in the "Bell Tower "room, and like the rest of the Inn, this room is furnished with beautiful antiques and decorated in the Victorian style. The room was impeccably clean, with a soft comfortable queen bed and gas fireplace, a wonderful cozy place to spend a cold wet September evening. Breakfast was a thing of beauty, featuring fresh fruit and juice, hot coffee , an egg dish and wonderful fluffy pancakes, with a tempting variety of homemade toppings. It was a pleasure to linger over breakfast and talk with our hosts, hopefully we will be back next year. We have no hesitation in recommending the Blue Goose Inn, particularly to those looking for something a little bit special at a reasonable price. The Blue Goose Inn is the embodiment of a past era of refinement and service excellence . Silvana & Ian Canada
