This is a place I have visited a few times and I find it to be just lovely. Each room is different from the next and many have a little loft bedroom. I found it to be very romantic! It is at a small marina very close to downtown Langley, which is a popular tourist destination and a fun town... More

We have stayed here several times and it has always been great. The staff is always friendly and helpful. This last time we stayed on the Marina room and it was very beautiful yet not functional. They have spent some money on fancy looking things that challenge the use of the room. The bath tub is more like a box... More

Your constructive comments about your recent stay at the Boatyard Inn and specifically, the new Marina Suite, are very much appreciated. The unit was designed by our late partner Paul Schell (owner, with wife Pam, of the Inn at Langley) to provide something new and different from our current offerings, including a luxurious waterview bathroom with soaking tub. We deeply... More

My husband and I have been visiting the Boatyard Inn once or twice a year for over 15 years. Each visit, whether for a celebration or for a much needed break from everyday life, has been peaceful and restorative. The inn is always beautifully maintained, and the tasteful northwest esthetic is casual, elegant and comforting. Mynda and the staff at... More

In just over an hour from Seattle we reached this fabulous, tucked away gem on the Langley waterfront. Visiting mid-week in January there were hardly any other guests here and we were lucky enough to be placed in unit #1; bottom floor with a nice deck right over the water commanding a fabulous view of the Cascade Mountains. The bed... More

You summed up the sentiments expressed by so many of our guests: The Boatyard Inn is literally just steps away from downtown Langley but feels a world away. As you noted, we are just a block down the hill from Main Street, tucked along the waterfront next to the town marina and public beach. Our waterfront location is what draws... More

Once again, my wife and I spent three days and two nights at Langley's Boartyard Inn. Mynda and her staff are wonderfully accommodating and so genuinely gracious! The comfortable suites are spotlessly clean, always fresh, and extremely well quipped. The water's edge location is delightful. From our ground floor deck, we enjoyed watching some seals, a variety of sea birds... More

We live in Seattle and love coming to this peaceful and tranquil inn for a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Our favorite rooms are the Driftwood Suites, #11 and #12, located at water's edge and offering two decks to take in the gorgeous view of Saratoga Passage and the Cascade mountains beyond.

This was a gem! The inn is located on the waterfront close to the marina and a short walk, uphill, to Langley. Had room 5 with a view of the bay. Room was clean and in great condition. Coffee and a few snacks provided in the kitchen area. The inn was very quiet and secluded to the point that we... More
