CELEBRATING OUR NEW DRIFTWOOD SUITES!

Five years from the beginning of the City’s approval process to completion of the building, we are delighted to announce that the Boatyard Inn’s new Driftwood Suites are finally open for business. The bright red shoreline structure complements the other four buildings that comprise the Boatyard Inn, and the new beach access has become a draw for families and couples alike seeking an “up close and personal” experience with the sea. Guests are giving rave reviews to the two new deluxe Driftwood Suites, each with two decks on which guests can enjoy the panoramic views of Saratoga Passage and Cascade Mountain Range, while falling asleep to the sounds of waves lapping against the bulkhead below.

… As owners of the Boatyard Inn (Paul and Pam Schell and Tony and Cathy Puma), we are delighted that the City of Langley has finally granted us our permanent Certificate of Occupancy. Obviously, this calls for a celebration! So we’ve decided to walk up the hill from the Inn and head to “downtown” Langley to get provisions for tonight’s feast.

At the heart-of-Langley’s Star Store mercantile and grocery, we are delighted to find fresh “world famous” Penn Cove mussels. We’re told they were brought in fresh today from Penn Cove, located just north of Coupeville in Central Whidbey Island. Yum!

After picking up some fresh bread, wine (how many bottles??!!), cheese and the rest of the ingredients for dinner, we head back down the hill to our waterfront Driftwood Suite.

Our spacious room includes a fully furnished galley kitchen, large living room and gorgeous handcrafted solid fir dining table.

Outside on the deck, we share hors d’oeuvres and tall tales as we watch the tide roll in.

Let the feast begin!

Not surprising, the Penn Cove mussels were the piece de resistance of our Northwest Seafood Chowder, a successful group effort we cooked up in our suite’s galley.

Time for one more toast out on the deck: “To friendship!”

A good time was had by all. And as we bid goodnight and headed to our respective rooms, we were comforted knowing one of the resident bald eagles would be keeping a watchful eye on things during the night
