History buffs and anyone who enjoys quaint, intimate, seaside locations should consider heading to The Captain Whidbey Inn for a 4-course Christmas Dinner. The 1907 log cabin is a registered historic structure located on the shores of Penn Cove on Whidbey Island, Washington. It is cozy and the restaurant is excellent.
Absolutely take a stroll around the property after dinner. The dock and lagoon areas are lovely at night. Consider staying the night at the inn and be sure to visit the quaint neighboring town of Coupeville during your visit. It is filled with intriguing antique shops, cafes, restaurants and art galleries. Dinner reservations required.
