Everything about this B &B is fabulous. The innkeepers make it feel like a home away from home. From the beautiful property, wildlife, and the kayaking tour everything went beyond our expectations. The breakfast was amazing and the evening cookies that Linda puts out for the guests are a nice touch. We can't wait to go back.

The Inn at Mallard Cove's Innkeepers, Don and Linda, make your stay very special by all the attention to every detail to ensure your time is peaceful, rejuvenating and memorable. Favorites for us were the free kayaking adventure that Don took us on through the local wildlife sanctuary, being served coffee in our room on a silver tray before breakfast,... More

The perfect place for a relaxing stay. Don and Linda have created an incredible place which cannot be improved on. Everything is just ...perfect; from the room's private terrace to Linda's breakfasts. Will certainly return when travelling again in the Puget Sound area.

We loved this beautiful place. Everything was perfect! The food, kayaking, wildlife (we saw a bald eagle and much more!), the rooms, the views... And the inn-keepers Don and Linda are wonderful and made our stay even more special! I strongly recommend this lovely B&B!

Thank you to our TA friends! You lead us in the perfect direction. This B&B could not have been better. It was a perfect location for a tranquil, restful start to our 2 week vacation. Don & Linda, our hosts were wonderful. Their home is one to be seen and I couldn't possibly describe the true essence of its beauty.... More

Linda and Don were the perfect hosts during our stay. Their beautifully appointed inn sits on a bluff overlooking at the Puget sound. This was my wife's first visit to Washington and our stay with Linda and Don certainly put an exclamation point to our trip. The coffee and tea service to our room before breakfast is over the top!... More

While planning a vacation centered around a performance in Seattle, I decided to expand my time in Washington State by visiting some new places. I had driven through Olympia but not visited, so planned for it to be my final stop. After evaluating several B&Bs and hotels, I selected the Inn at Mallard Cove because of its setting, view, and...

After a busy week at a scientific conference in Seattle it would be hard to imagine a nicer place to spend a couple of relaxing days before flying back to Scotland. The Malatesta's have created a wonderful B & B in their lovely home/Inn at Mallard cove overlooking the waters of the Puget sound. The bed, the bath and the... More

What a lovely treat to stay at this B&B. So many B&B's I have encountered have decorating that is overdone or "kitschy." But this B&B had a very thoughtful and beautifully executed theme of creating a "Georgian" atmosphere. (We had to look up the period--England before Queen Victoria!) We stayed in the Garden room which was lovely and had a... More

This is a place to get away to. It's really true what others say: every wish is anticipated, multiple lovely places allow you to "be" within and outside. I enjoyed the unobtrusive but available clues to what interesting people our hosts are. They didn't just drop out of nowhere to become B and B hosts! We feel lucky to have... More
