“Small windows, no ventilation”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

We stopped for the night passing through. Our standard king room was small, cramped, but nicely furnished. The tiny window faces east so the room was warm and stuffy in July. The window itself was sealed shut to accommodate the window air conditioner. Sure it kept the room comfortable, but it was unpleasant to have to sleep with the rush of air when an open window would have cooled the room just fine.

The room is attractive in the fussy way of some B&Bs. Lots of floral prints, too many pillows. A nice touch is fresh flowers in the room and cookies. They provide a wine opener and wine glasses. Staff is gracious and friendly. It's a nice hotel, just avoid the standard king room.

Room Tip: Select a room facing east or north; avoid standard king.

Comfy, cosy rooms with optional fireplaces and jetted tubs. Biggest and best homemade cookies. Wonderful breakfast (two courses - yogurt, bran and fruit with a baked treat THEN frittata breakfast bake of the day - always plentiful and very tasty). Lori and Steve and all the staff are friendly, efficient and helpful with ideas for things to do and places to go in and around the town. We have visited many times and whenever we need a quiet getaway we always head to the Wild Iris.

Room Tip: If you like an outdoor space book a room with a balcony or access to the garden.

Excellent, amazing experience at the Wild Iris Inn. From the friendly greeting by Nina when we entered the door, to sitting on the wide front porch with our chilled wine, to the amazing cookies we enjoyed both mornings.
Breakfast with fresh fruit, yogurt and granola with oat bread and then a wonderful asparagus frittata, Everything delicious and home made.
Thanks for such a refreshing, relaxing start to our holiday.

We spent two nights 4th of July weekend at the Wild Iris. Even though we are 60 we are like little kids anxiously awaiting our La Conner trips to spend the night in total relaxation, take in some shopping, explore parks nearby, and savor an amazing breakfast. We are never disappointed and always find something new. One of my favorite things to do is sit on the private balcony at the Wild Iris and gaze over the farm land, sipping some sweet wine. Steve and Lori are the best. I can't wait to go back. They have new restaurants in town and the food at Seeds at the new Italian restaurant are delicious!

Lovely get away, romantic enough for a honey moon. Enjoy peaceful and relaxing La Conner Washington. The breakfast is fantastic and the sleep is very quiet. The owners are your friends while you are there, so you don't feel like you are staying at an Inn, but someone's home. Shower and hot tub very clean, nice touches like fireplace and walk around the center of La, Conner.

Room Tip: Let the hostess know what you are looking for in a room when you book (romantic get away, peace and...

I rarely have a B & B experience where the attention to detail is so spot on. The Wild Iris Inn in tiny La Conner, Washington is such a place. From the inviting chairs on the porch to the local photography gracing the walls to fresh flowers, an immaculate room, and a truly delightful two-course breakfast, this inn is a winner! They easily accommodated our dietary needs without just omitting ingredients. These are professionals, even noting what kind of tea we were drinking so they could provide the same type with a new pot of hot water. The ambiance of the inn is perfect though the weather was so sunny and warm, we had no need of the gas fireplace. The large, fluffy towels, robes, and Aveda products in the bathroom also won us over, as did the DVD selection and CD player. Nice touches, all. We will definitely go back and you should, too!

Room Tip: A king-sized suite with a jetted tub is available. We opted for the smaller queen room since we wer...
