Anacortes Vacation Activities

Anacortes is a beautiful waterfront city located on Fidalgo Island in northwest Washington, and is known by some as the gateway to the San Juan Islands. But for many others, this picturesque city is a delightful, livable community that is a notable destination on its own. Whether you come to enjoy the island itself, the surrounding water, or you choose Anacortes as a place to launch your San Juan Island exploration, Nantucket Inn is your first stop for welcoming accommodations.

The Inn is on the main road as you enter town and offers many restaurants within walking distance, a short walk to the Harbor, and is just minutes away from most area attractions.
