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

I stayed an Mallard Cove just because and it was a good decision. This inn is amazing, the rooms comfortable, the house complete and the hosts charmingly interesting. Part of the joy of travel is the people you meet and are hosts were marvelous. We spent most of our time in the conservatory with a grand view of the water.... More

Can I give this B&B more than 5 stars? My husband is not a fan of B&B's but he selected the title of this review! Everything about the B&B is exceptional! We were greeted on the driveway by Don alongside the biggest dahlia I've ever seen. I needed to take a selfie to give scale to the flower! After a... More

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!
