This was our first time to stay in a B&B, and it was a wonderful experience. It’s a bit hard to find after dark, but worth the challenge. The view was amazing, the hospitality was warm and welcoming, and breakfast made us want to stay...More

We visited in mid-September and the weather was great. Highs in the 70's and lows in the 50's. It felt sooo good - coming from HOT and humid Louisiana! We had lots of sun, but they were expecting a couple days of rain when we left. Obviously that is something you just can't anticipate too far in advance. It seems like September is the best time to visit - but honestly, I would touch base with some of the locals there. Brian at the Lost Whale Inn (or probably anyone there) could tell you for sure. I believe their "rainy season" begins in November and lasts several months? But I'm not completely sure about that. I would definitely check with some of the people and business owners that live there. During our September visit, we saw lots of elk, some whales, some seals, sea lions, neat birds etc. There were many pretty flowers in bloom as well.
