Experience Autumn in Langley…

Now’s a great time to reserve a suite at the Boatyard Inn, the perfect base for celebrating all-things-autumn on Whidbey Island, including Oktoberfest (October 1-3 in Langely; October 2 in Greenbank) and HarvestFest in Coupeville (October 9).

Once you’ve arrived and settled into your waterfront suite, walk up the hill to “downtown” Langley where shopping and munching and sipping await you. Be sure to take a break at the 2nd Street Wine Shop and Tasting Room.

End the day at Prima Bistro. (Ask Innkeepers Mynda or Faye to make a reservation for you.) Indulge yourself by chowing down on the best fresh trout imaginable.

Rise early and bundle up. Brew a fresh cup of coffee in your Boatyard Inn kitchenette, and then plant yourself outside on your private deck — a perfect eagle-scouting perch.

When you’ve tired of the scene of seagulls screeching, eagles soaring, driftwood drifting, and ocean waving, head out to the Useless Bay Coffee Co. on Second Street (next to the Post Office.) for your next cup of java. You can’t miss it, as the aroma of fresh roasted coffee beans will beckon you from the street. Grab a newspaper and catch up on the local news over a cappucino and yummy fresh scone.

Now you have decisions to make….what to do next?

…Try blowing your own glass pumpkin at Callahan’s Fire Station Glass Gallery. (Ask about the special price offered to Boatyard Inn guests.)

For a change of scenery, head out to historic Coupeville for lunch or for an early dinner at Toby’s, reputed to serve the best steamed mussels in the Northwest — harvested daily from the shoreline “next door” at Penn Cove.

The bad news is that you won’t have time to do everything. The good news is that you have the perfect reason to book reservations for your return trip to the Boatyard Inn!
