Looking to immerse yourself in nature, but want the safety and comforts of home? A private cottage on a bluff by the sea is just the ticket. On June 18, the Fort Casey Inn reopened its beautifully furnished units.
Originally built as officers’ housing just before World War I, antique touches of Americana exude throughout each unit, some even with clawfoot bathtubs. They’re just steps away from places to explore like the Camp Casey Conference Center grounds, Fort Casey State Park, the Heritage Forest, and miles of driftwood-strewn beach. It’s not unusual to see deer, rabbits, and bald eagles on the trail, or even from your own window.
New safety protocols are in place, with extra disinfecting and sanitizing, plus no-contact check-in and check-out. As an added precaution, units will now be vacant at least 48 hours between stays and many at least 7 days. Each unit comes complete with bedding and towels. They also have full kitchens with utensils, offering the option to prepare your own meals, perhaps to enjoy breakfast outside on the porch.
Guests should keep a few things in mind: Visitors are asked to wear masks when interacting with staff or guests from other cottages and a two-night minimum is in place. As Island County moves into Phase 3, many shops, restaurants and attractions are now open on Whidbey Island and ready to welcome back visitors.
Camp Casey Conference Center is the perfect location for an inspiring group getaway to Whidbey Island, Washington. Ideal for sports camps, church groups, outdoor education camps, summer camps, and other nonprofit endeavors, Camp Casey provides overnight accommodations and food service for groups large and small.
