About Us

"This is one of the best places I’ve ever stayed. It’s right on the water, the bed is exceptionally comfortable and the room is cozy and well appointed. It is in walking distance to several great little eateries"

The Waterfront Inn is a 1918 historic fisherman’s home that was remodeled and extended in 2001 with the idea of taking advantage of its amazing location and view to create the only waterfront lodging in Gig Harbor. The prior owners spent over a year adding on and completely renovating the humble cottage to turn it into the Waterfront Inn. In November 2021, Kevin and Kathy MacDonald purchased the inn with the idea of upgrading the property to make it the finest accommodations in Gig Harbor, matching the quality of the property to its amazing location. They have invested in major improvements and are continuing to upgrade the property throughout 2022 in order to achieve this vision.
