From the moment our getaway began, I felt like I was swept away into a Martha's Vineyard-like setting, with that peaceful maritime charm that has a way of soothing the soul.. . . . .an essence of calm surrounds you as you experience the view of the harbor from the coziness of your bed. As it all had to come...

We had a very nice stay and wished we could have made it another day or two. Very comfy bed, fluffy towels, friendly owner with good advice for the area. The property is right on the harbor and has a nice dock and sundeck if you want to come in your boat or just have a nice drink or picnic...

Leave your curtains open and awake to a beautiful view of the water when you stay in one of the 3 ground floor rooms at the Waterfront Inn! Our bed was very comfortable, making it difficult to start our day. We just wanted to lay and look at the water! Our room was cozy and quiet. There is a sitting...

From start to finish my husband and I had a wonderful time at the Waterfront Inn. We were greeted immediately by Sue the manager of the Inn. She is warm, helpful and very open to any questions we had. We honestly had no idea this place would be so charming, peaceful and beautifully furnished. All the touches of a home...

We spent a delightful week for our 25th anniversary enjoying scenic and serene Gig Harbor. The Waterfront Inn was the perfect place for us. The room was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The Inn keepers were right there any time we had a question and graciously provided what ever we needed. I was struck by how quiet the harbor was...

The Waterfront Inn was everything we were looking for and MORe! The bed was comfortable, the place was spotless and the view was amazing. The deck over the water was perfect. It is right on the water and is perfect for a romantic getaway. We also loved the hosts. We will be back for sure!

The other recent reviews are spot on. Felt recharged soaking in the fine room and unforgettable view! The innkeepers will offer great service or be invisible if your prefer. A short walk to a good breakfast or dinner restaurants.

This was such a treat....right on the harbor.....rooms are not large but very accomodating....when it's warm you can sit right on the dock watching the boats and birds.... when it's chilly you can open the french doors, turn on the fireplace and spend the evening staring off into "Heaven"....small seal, as well as two bald eagles and a heron kept...

I was one of those who discovered the charming, quaint and post-card worthy Waterfront Inn through the wonderful world of Groupon. I booked a two night stay for the "Boathouse", with a view looking directly out onto the harbor. I have to say, this was exactly what I was looking for and I had a very relaxing stay. Sue and...

Having stayed in Gig Harbor several times before this is my favorite. The location is great as you can walk to some of the places in the Gig Harbor area as this place in on the edge of the north part of the harbor. The Inn is quaint, quiet and very well kept. The innkeepers Sue and Gary are very...
