Staying at The Inn at Mallard Cove is like stepping into a movie set with family and friends. I felt welcome and comfortable immediately. The property is extremely well maintained and beautiful but also very "homey" ...and wonderfully spotlessly clean. The deep jetted tub was a delight each night; the coffee delivered to my room each morning in a silver... More

The moment you arrive at this delightfully secluded family owned bed & breakfast, you know that you have made a good choice. Don and Linda the owners are a warm, friendly and considerate couple who make every effort to ensure that you are comfortable and totally relaxed. Don showed us around the house and our room and explained about early... More

What a great BnB in an amazing location. Amazing views, you may not want to leave. Don and Linda are great hosts. They will pamper you. Our room was picture perfect. If you are Olympia this is a must stay. Ask about the Phillipine restaurant nearby.

Beautiful house, gardens and location. Hosts have perfected the combination of attentive while allowing privacy. Breakfast was wonderful. But highlight of stay was the dawn kayak trip that Don kindly took us on - harbor seals, herons, eagles and even an otter! Don't miss that opportunity. Its a 20 minute drive to olympia but a wonderful "weekend get away"

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
