Coupeville on Whidbey Island

Across the cove, Coupeville, Central Whidbey’s historic seaport town, features Victorian manors and delightful, front street shops. Artists love Coupeville and Coupeville loves artists, showing their works in a number of specialized galleries and offering year-round classes at the Coupeville Arts Center. Perched on the bluffs along Penn Cove, the town started life as an 1800's seafaring center and now serves the entire island as county seat and medical services hub. Nearby Ebey’s Prairie, Fort Ebey and Ebey’s Landing National Historic Preserve are steeped in the history of early settlers who came here searching for Whidbey Island real estate. Some of the Victorian homes they built now serve modern visitors as inns and B&Bs clustered on the Madrone-lined shores of Penn Cove. The cove is popular for sailing, and historic tall ships regularly ply its waters. A little south of Coupeville are Fort Casey, the Keystone Ferry and miles of wild rhododendron-filled forest.
