Let me start by saying our whole experience renting from the owners Anna & Tony was perfect from the onset. From the quick response from Anna at the beginning of our quest, to the gracious hospitality they displayed throughout our two month stay, we could not have been more pleased with our rental at Inn by the Ferry. It’s apparent Anna & Tony take a lot of pride in their property, and no matter how many questions we asked, they were always answered professionally, politely, and promptly.
This two-bedroom, two-bathroom lower level house is located in a quiet residential area. It has a separate entrance with plenty of space for parking. When we first arrived and opened the front door, we knew we found a place we would love. It truly did feel like a home away from home.
The unit is spotless, and beautifully decorated with high-end furnishings. The red gas stove in the living room is a nice touch, especially on a few of those cool winter days. Comfortable beds, high quality linens, and a well-stocked kitchen with organic spices, nice glassware, upscale dishes and cookware... the owners have thought of all the small details. We appreciated the laundry room with full-size washer & dryer, a time saving feature for long term renters. Cable TV, Netflix movie channels, and Internet wifi are available, as well as numerous books and games. Anna was helpful with information about events, happenings, and restaurants, and maintains a binder full of local information. Every day from the dining room or bedroom windows we watched ferries arriving & departing from the terminal less than a mile away.
A few days before we left, Anna called to ask if there was anything else she could do to make her guests more comfortable, was there anything we wished had been in the unit, or was there something we didn’t like? Honestly, we couldn’t think of one thing to tell her to do any differently than she was already doing. Anna has a gift for making her guests feel well cared for, and it’s obvious she spends a lot of time making sure everything is perfect for all her guests.
Anna & Tony, thank you so much for sharing in an experience we will never forget. We’re looking forward to our next visit to Anacortes and staying again at Inn by the Ferry! Tom & Mary
