I've wanted to find a weekend for years to stay out at the Inn (I lived & worked on the Island for a number of years, then moved away). Winter is my favorite season to stay on the Island. I picked the Doctor's House since we have younger children. It is quiet, quiet, quiet at night. And the coyotes howling...

We rented unit #8 with another couple for a weekend. It was really nice and quiet. Being January there were not many other guests. We found the house to be quite comfortable. The fireplace in the living room was really nice and worked well at keeping the temperature at a comfortable level. The two bedrooms were nice. Bathroom was in...

Thanks for your feedback and glad to know you liked the location. I hope you were able to check out a trip to Port Townsend. If not, this time, maybe next. It's the cheapest scenic boat ride around if you walk on. Happy traveling! -Robyn

This is located right next door to an old Fort State Park that was part of the Triage of forts to protect the Straits of Juan De Fuca. It is Whidbey Island Fort Casey, Marrow stone Island Fort Flagler and Port Townsend Fort Worden. Each old has turned the old officers quarters to places to stay. Fort Casey is at...

Stayed at the doctor's house which offered a bit more quiet and privacy. House had everything we would want for a short stay including authenticity. 2 bedrooms (small queens each) and a share bath all on 2nd floor. Probably fine for couple with 2 smallish children or family. Pretty cozy setup. Fire stove in small main room downstairs. Small kitchen...

We stayed at the Inn for a family get away. Everything seemed to be outdated. It was a nice place to stay but needed some tlc. We at least got see how the soldiers lived. Outside of going to Fort Casey State Park there wasn't anything hung to do within walking distance. Coupeville was the closest town but was a...

breathtaking view in this historic but well maintained row of cottages. We woke up to abundant sunshine in the east facing windows and spotted a deer. Spent the evenings watching birds while the kids played in the yard overlooking the spit. Short drive away from the beach and town. This is the kind of vacation that people dream of coming...

There is too much to love about my experience at the Fort Casey Inn. I prefer my accomodations authentic and unfussy. I stayed for 30 nights. I asked for a house without television and I was glad to have the peace and quiet free from distraction. I Never got bored with the surroundings. There are gorgeous hiking trails just steps...

Last minute plans led us to a wonderful overnight stay at Fort Casey in. There happened to be one unit left, so it was meant to be. What a wonderful step back in time gem. The home is decked out in antique furnishings, there is no TV,(WIFI is available, but not always guaranteed). We loved it! It was my husbands...

Please understand that this review was written by one whose age is showing in diminished agility and balance. Also please understand that an effort has been made by the innkeeper to preserve this historic site as much as reasonably possible. Hence, no TV or telephone (but how does one report a fire). This was my second two-night stay at the...

Downstairs includes a living area with propane fireplace along with full kitchen and a dining table. Enclosed back porches are perfect for storing bicycles or your outdoor gear.

An outdoor swimming pool is open June thru Aug with exception of Sunday. Year round guests have access to board games, picnic tables, hiking trails as well as the nearby beach. The beach offers spectacular views of the Straits of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains. The inviting row of Fort Casey Inn cottages together sleep up to 46.
