John and Jane Kineth House – 1887
This pink Italianate style Victorian home is an icon of Coupeville situated on a prominent corner a few blocks above the waterfront. The Victorian beauty and craftsmanship extend inside where you’ll find towering 13 foot ceilings and period antique furnishings, a painted stone fireplace and warm fir flooring matching in both nostalgia and charm. While the home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it includes all the modern touches you might need. The individually decorated rooms and private bathrooms keep the spaces light and welcoming. Watch a movie on a high-definition television, and fall asleep on plush foam or down pillows in your queen or king-size bed. In the morning, see the mountain and water views from the oversized windows, then enjoy the complimentary Wi-Fi in the parlor over a cup of coffee.
Breakfast is served to guests of both houses on the sun porch of sweet or savory goodies homemade with locally grown ingredients whenever possible.
James and Keturah Coupe Gillespie House – 1891
This blue Italianate style Victorian home was moved to the lot next to the pink house where it began a new life serving guests as an extension of the bed & breakfast inn. The home has 10 foot ceilings, fir flooring and preserves a more comfortable décor from the roaring 90s including an antique Steinway piano from 1897 and other period antiques.
Also listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Coupe house has been modernized to include private bathrooms, WiFi and high definition television. After a day exploring the island, return to the inn and unwind in a steam shower of the Chart Room or relax in the hydrotherapy of the jetted tub of the Captain’s Suite, then enjoy chocolate chip cookies and a board game in the drawing room for a true home-away-from-home experience.
