We just returned from a trip to the Olympic Pennisula. In Olympia, Washington, we stayed in the Inn at Mallard Cove. This was our first experience with a Bed and Breakfast and most probably spoiled us for all others. The location of this Inn is simply stunning. Surrounded on three sides by nature preserves and bordered by water on the fourth, this Inn gives you a feeling of being far away in the country when actually, you are just minutes from Olympia. The setting is beautiful with lovely gardens, nature trails and spectacular views. Then you get to the house. It is like entering a Thomas Kincaid painting. The home itself is absolutely lovely with beautifully decorated common rooms that are comfortable and inviting. The bedrooms are amazing. Antiques, beautiful wallpapers and coordinated fabrics, fireplaces, jacuzzi tubs, private decks with water views make this establishment easily a five star property. The breakfast was delicious and beautifuly presented and served. Everything was absolutely wonderful. Don and Linda, owners and hosts make the experience perfect. They are warm and friendly, making your stay feel like you are visiting good friends. If you are going to be in Olympia, this is the only place to stay. Enjoy!
