Dave & Diane
A Pampering Not to be Missed!
Nearly two years ago my eye was caught by this lovely Inn while visiting Coupeville and I vowed that one day I would stay there. So when I needed a Christmas "getaway" it was the first place I thought of. Wow... what a wonderful experience. The moment I walked in the door I was greeted warmly by innkeepers Dave and Dianne and made to feel so welcome. And it only got better from there. A world traveler, I have slept in just about every kind of room imaginable... but I have NEVER been pampered like THIS!
I chose the Onward Room because of the turret and the photo on the website. The room was even more beautiful and comfortable than I could have imagined, with so many little extra thoughtful touches... SIX nice big fluffy pillows on my bed... chocolates, flowers and hard candy in the room... my bed was occupied by an adorable teddy bear and in the shower sat my own little yellow rubber duckie. Oh and the shower included strong, hot water. I appreciated the nice video library and little extras... such as one video I started to watch which had a small note attached saying it was a nice story but had a lot of very bad language. They weren't trying to tell people what to watch... the video was THERE... but that DID matter to me as I did not want to view it.
Breakfast was scrumptious and served on time. Dianne did a great job of cooking while Dave served and kept us all well entertained. He was excellent at getting the conversation going among the strangers at the table and in no time at all we were all laughing and talking; before we knew it, it was time for the second breakfast shift! And there was always an abundance of Dianne's yummy cookies, as well as popcorn, hot and cold drinks, etc., available 24 hours a day.
The Inn is in a wonderful location, just a block from Penn Cove and within easy walking distance of the wharf, antique and gift shops, and a variety of restaurants.
Prior to booking I was a bit hesitant because the Inn is obviously very romantic and I was going alone. When I spoke on the phone to the assistant innkeeper, Linda, she was very pleasant and helpful and assured me that I would be quite comfortable, and she was right. I never for a moment felt "out of place." I planned to stay four nights but just could not leave so stayed an extra night. I was also given permission to check out any room that was empty so over the course of my stay I had the opportunity to "explore" all of them. They are all simply stunning. I have been "singing the praises" of this Inn all over the place.
An adventurer, I always like to try different places... but I have already booked my next three visits to the Anchorage Inn. The place is gorgeous, clean and comfortable... but what is bringing me back are Dave and Dianne. My mind knows I am one of hundreds who walk through their doors but they made me FEEL as if I was visiting special friends; and next time I WILL be. :) When I meet special, Godly people such as Dave and Dianne, no way will I just let them walk out of my life. I can't WAIT to go back for my next visit. There was such a peacefulness about the Inn... staying there felt like getting a giant hug from God! I consider this my new "home away from home."
