We had a lovely two night getaway at Mallard Cove and enjoyed every minute. Even though the weather was rainy outside, we enjoyed being inside in the beautiful glass solarium, watching the Cove. Our romantic room had a canopy bed, tiled shower and gas fireplace where we relaxed with our books and napped. Breakfasts were heavenly. We went into town... More

What more can I say, than I could live there the rest of my life. Don and Linda our hosts were so welcoming and helpful. Don even took an early morning kayak ride with my son-in-law to the nearby wildlife refuge. There are Bald eagles that fly by every day and hang out in the trees. Linda's breakfast's were so...

We had a kid away at Grandma's and took advantage of the opportunity to visit the Inn at Mallard Cove - we were not disappointed! The setting is beautiful even at the darkest point of the year. Linda and Don were extremely gracious - even finding us an open restaurant for our non-traditional Christmas dinner. They also were incredibly welcoming... More

Staying here was the perfect ending for my husband's birthday surprise!! Don was most gracious and informative about the property and the surrounding area. Although we are both Native Olympians we enjoyed staying at this home away from home. The Mallard Room had a beautiful bathroom complete with a 2-person jetted tub and awesome walk in shower! I definitely recommend... More

This Bed and Breakfast is on prime property. The owners did a fantastic job renovating it into the perfect inn. We spent two nights in the Garden Room. The fireplace and deck were delightful. I love that they have beach front property on the Nisqually Reach. Next time we hope to go kayaking! Breakfasts were excellent and the owner Don... More

I've stayed in many B&B's over the years and this one is an absolute standout. The location is off-the-scale gorgeous, overlooking Puget Sound. The Inn is gorgeous and comfortable, the rooms are luxurious, the breakfast was delicious and the owners, Don and Linda, were wonderful hosts that made us feel very much at home. To top it off, when we... More

We had the pleasure of staying at this lovely Inn for 5 nights. The inn is located on the water and has spectacular views of the Puget Sound. This Inn is just beautiful and you can feel the love with which it was renovated and decorated by Linda. One of the things that we really appreciated was the couples' dedication... More

We just finished a fantastic stay at the Inn at Mallard Cove. The word that comes to mind is thoughtful. Our innkeepers were thoughtful in every possible way. Our room was the result of thoughtful attention to detail and comfort. The jacuzzi was big enough for 2 with homemade lavender soap. The bed was so comfortable, that it was really... More
