In looking for places to stay in the Olympia area, you cannot go wrong with The Inn at Mallard Cove. If you enjoy sightseeing, and relaxing, and reading a book and goofing off doing nothing, you cannot go wrong.

Breakfast favorites included fresh fruit and garnish from the garden,... More

My wife and I spent a delightful time with Don and Linda while we visited this outstanding B&B. The setting is extraordinary. The kayaking trip with Don was eyeopening. We saw harbor seals and their pups, eagles, terns and hundreds of other shore and water fowl. It was a magical outing, and not bad exercise too! The views of the... More

Linda and Don are excellent inn keepers. My room did not face the Sound, but the quiet of the woods and the activity of the wild life was wonderful. The inn is immaculate. It has many treasures for some one who is willing to sit still and look. I like antiques and felt very at home here.
