With the everlasting COVID-19 pandemic putting a halt to long-traveling summer vacations for local families, don’t forget about nearby island destinations for a “staycation,” such as the Eagle Harbor Inn in downtown Winslow.
The island’s only downtown boutique hotel, the popular tourist destination showcases an intimate and unique structure that is referred by many as the “petit hotel.” Located near the waters of Puget Sound, the Inn offers spectacular views, especially in summer.
The lodging facility offers five hotel rooms and two custom townhouses that are built around a garden-filled courtyard. During the pandemic, it is perfect for a romantic getaway or a quick family stay.
Guest amenities include custom-designed furnishings; private and marble bathrooms; Pacific Northwest art and artists; Egyptian cotton sheets; and fine and absorbent towels.
For the two townhouses, guest accommodations include gourmet kitchen and dining designated to sit eight or more; furnished living room with a gas fireplace; private elevator within the unit from the garage to all floors; and a private outdoor patio.
The Grand Forest Room is a 330 square-foot room meant for two guests located on the ground floor. Prices range from $180 to $220 a night.
The Port Blakely Room is a two-guest room of 340 square-feet. One of the prominent features is the French doors onto the terrace to reflect the romance of the Pacific Northwest.
The Harbor Suite has a maritime theme, providing a view of the ship masts in Eagle Harbor. The room is 435 square feet with a maximum occupancy of four.
The Wing Point Suite is an “L” shaped corner suite of 385 square feet and a maximum occupancy of four.
Prices range from $200 to $255 a night for all three of those rooms.
The Rockaway Beach Room is considered the guests favorite, according to its website, and is dreamy, second-story room with vaulted ceilings, views in three directions and a steeping tub. The room can be accessed through the small library and provides exclusive privacy. The space is 400 square feet and has a maximum occupancy of two. Prices range from $215 to $280 a night.

The 1,800 square-foot Harbor Townhome is the largest of the seven rooms with a maximum occupancy of six. The two-floor space offers a master bedroom with a full bath and king bed and a guest room with a queen bed. This townhouse has a single-car garage, private elevator and private patio. Prices range from $460 to $570 a night.
In terms of COVID-19 guidelines, each guest is provided with a custom access code to let themselves in at arrival, reducing potential contact with employees and other guests. Staff has enhanced cleaning procedures to sanitize all rooms and communal spaces. One major change is the temporary elimination of in-room housekeeping during guests’ stay. Staff will not enter an occupational guest room unless a problem arises. Additionally, masks are advised to be worn when outside of your room.
The lodging “jewel” has been operational for 15 years and is owned by local couple Cihan Anisoglu and Bonnie McBryan. Anisoglu is an architect and is credited for the design and functionality of the Inn, while McBryan retired from public service to take on the role of “innkeeper.” Their son Sean is the Inn manager.
