I stayed at the NWLA guesthouse for one night in May, 2014, during a language immersion weekend. Overall: In general, I'm a little hesitant to stay in a B&B-style lodging, but I was happy here. The shared areas are cozy and would be nice for chats or sharing some wine. The guesthouse is attached to the NWLA center, so you... More

The rooms at this place are really cute. We stayed in the Richmond Suite which was lovely, with a private deck and jacuzzi bath. The ground are amazing and you can walk into Langley! A sweet girl named Ami from Japan fixed eggs to order for us. The Manor has been bought by a non-profit Cultural organization, and she was... More

This BB was so easy to find off the road heading to Langley. Beware of the ferry wait time,but no worries to check in because the owners leave instructions on how to self check in. The morning breakfast was prepared by Tamara and she is great making you feel like you are right at home. She keeps all of the... More

This was a larger B&B with fireplaces in all rooms and comfortable furnishings. This year it has been changed to the North West Language Center and both signs are up, but visible only driving into Langley from the south. With a two night stay, the rooms were set up, but not freshen or towel changed. As the NWLC, the breakfast... More

We returned here four times this past year with visits of 4 to 7 nights each time. We found Ashingdon Manor to be a very cozy and comfortable accommodation in a lovely country setting by a pond. We had a different breakfast each morning which were both delicious and hearty. We would recommend it without reservation.

Being a B&B owner myself, I'm highly critical of lodging establishments, and a bed and breakfast is no exception. Ashington Manor really impressed me, from the moment I drove in. The grounds are absolutely amazing and I immediately felt at peace. The friendly innkeeper met me and showed me around the property, even taking time to show me the open... More

I came to Langley Island for a much-needed solo retreat. Bay and Daniel treated me so kindly! They catered to my every need, including breakfast in bed every morning! They have a wonderful family and a very sweet dog. When I had a stomach ache, Bay made me ginger/lemon tea with real ginger in it. They are both excellent cooks... More

Ashingdon Manor was a wonderful addition to our trip to the Pacific Northwest. It is located in a bucolic, country setting which is walking distance to downtown Langley. Daniel and Bay Ginder are excellent hosts who went way over and above what was expected of them to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Bay's breakfasts are delicious and the... More

While searching online for a bed and breakfast on Whidbey Island as part of our honeymoon, we came across Ashingdon Manor. The photos seemed to present a very well kept and relaxing retreat. After checking a couple of reviews, we decided this was the place for us. Even from the first telephone conversation I had with Innkeeper Bay Ginder, to... More

My wife and I stayed at Ashingdon for an extra long weekend and we both think the place was great. The room was clean and quiet and the hosts were both wonderful. The food was so good I'm sorry we only stayed in long enough one morning to eat the breakfast. That was a really fun morning at a large... More
