“Very comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2008

We stayed one night after driving from Vancouver at the end of an anniversary cruise and on our way to Seattle to fly home. We had been to La Conner several years ago and knew we would enjoy the area again. I also wanted to see the tulip fields and visit the growers. I found the hotel on the internet and used the reviews as a guide. The reviews are accurate. The accomadations were very comfortable and the wine and cheese/cracker tray was excellent (this is an extra charge but well worth it). The breakfast was so large that we had to pass on the muffins and take them with us. We had a room with a jacuzzi which was large enough to fit two easily. It would have been nice to stay longer. I highly recommend staying here.

Really enjoyed this place. Great staff, and the room was spacious and welcoming. The first course of Breakfast was a little too sweet for us. (sweet yogurt with berries & granola and a turnover covered in icing) The savory quiche & sausage which followed was filling.

Sounds funny, but the tv/dvd system in our room was hard to figure out. The tv is tucked into the wall over the fireplace and the buttons are hidden. The hostess quickly showed us how to use it, but we had some trouble with it.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Wild Iris Inn with 3 girlfriends for a getaway to celebrate 2 birthdays. It is a beautiful, very well run B&B that feels like a luxurious country inn. We all loved the "garden" themed decor, the comfy king sized beds, with oh so soft sheets and of course the fresh baked cookies waiting in our rooms at check in! We didn't have time to use the jacuzzi or the DVD's (too busy talking!) but it was nice to have them available. Everything was also spotlessly clean and amazingly quiet.

In the morning , we enjoyed a delicious 2 course breakfast. Although this inn caters mainly to couples( with individual tables for 2), the innkeepers Stephen and Lori set up a table for 4 just for us!

We enjoyed the beautiful tulip fields and had a great time shopping at Seattle Premium Outlet Mall as well as the adorable shops in quaint downtown La Conner. We came home feeling pampered and refreshed!

In 2006 my husband (boyfriend at the time) and I won a gift certificate for the Wild Iris at an auction. We went to La Conner in May of that year and stayed at the Wild Iris. It was amazing. The bed was so comfy and the room was so relaxing. We were both amazed at the outstanding breakfast the next morning. After our first stay we recommended it to everyone we came across. In 2007 we had to fight for it but we won the gift card again and stayed in May. I was sick and we ended up spending the whole time in the room which was perfectly fine due to the comforting and relaxing atmosphere the room holds. Now in 2008, everyone let us win because we just got married, but we have the gift card again and are staying in May. I look forward to this weekend every year. The staff is very accommodating and so curtious. I highly reccommend it to anyone looking for a nice little get away without getting away!

This was our 3rd stay at the Wild Iris (over a period of about 12 years). Each time, it was a delight.

The rooms are beautifully decorated, the bed was comfortable, and we felt right at home.

One of the first things my husband zoomed in on was the giant cookies left on the small table in our room. They were soft, chewy, and delicious.

The dining room downstairs, which was redecorated since our last visit, is lovely. Breakfast was very satisfying.

The rates at the hotel are quite reasonable. We won't hesitate to book at the Wild Iris next time we visit La Conner.

  • Liked — Quiet, elegant.

There's not much to add to the previous comments. The inn can be recommended without any constraints, even if you're an odd old-fashioned traveler from europe. O.k., we always find the breakfast surprising, but new experiences open up new horizons ;) Friendly people, pretty architecture, lots of pillows and the fact that the jacuzzi couldn't be used can only be blamed to the weather (actually, it could've been used, if one wasn't afraid of the cold...).

From beginning to end the trip to Wild Iris Inn was fabulous. Nestled next to the beautiful tulip fields in La Conner are the lovely European style accommodations. The luxurious room has a hot tub, fireplace, stereo complete with romantic CD's, a deck, lovely linens, restful lighting, movies and games available downstairs in the lovely sitting room with brick fireplace. Upon arrival my sweetheart had a bouquet of tulips there waiting for me to enjoy available from a local nursery. Moments later Rosie came in with a healthy tray of cheese, fruit and crackers and of course what lovers nest would be complete without scrumptuous, abundant chocolate chip cookies! We enjoyed the quiet time together on our New Year's weekend. The breakfast in the inn was included and decadent. In fact, we're going back for Valentine's Day! The staff, food and setting were perfect for our serene time.
