Upon our decision to return to La Conner for a two day mini holiday after a 20 year absence, we needed a place to stay. After researching a few places on the internet, we decided on the Wild Iris Inn. Upon our arrival, we immediately knew we made the right choice. “Rose” introduced herself, advised of complimentary tea in the main lobby available daily. Upon completion of the check-in process, Rose personally showed us to our room – where we were shown how the fireplace, TV & DVD operated, the cd player and how to remove the cover from the outdoor "spa tub for two". The homemade cookies waiting for us were a nice touch that showed up daily. Our outdoor deck faced the pasture and had two wicker chairs. Even though a light rain was falling, we were able to have a glass of wine and read a book outdoor in comfort. It is apparent that our hosts love being inn keepers as they have taken care in giving their inn a personality - not a standard room in a standard hotel. Although Maple Street is a few blocks from the main shopping area, it is an easy walk. We parked our car and walked everywhere. As mentioned in other reviews, the sit down service breakfast was fantastic. We learned after day 1 to wrap the pastry for a treat later! The egg dishes had on both days were excellent and the coffee, tea, juice & water never stopped coming. The young woman who served us was extremely polite and accommodating - I wish she had told us her name - I forgot to ask. As a result of our stay at the Wild Iris Inn, we are already looking for other "Select" properties to stay at and will be back to visit the Wild Iris again.
Really liked - the Aveda bath products and oversized robes & towels, in room magazines and excellent staff.
Would change - would like to see the base temp lowered in the rooms (with the radiant heat it would be easy to increase the temp). Our first night sleep was a bit too warm during a cool spring. We slept with all windows open the following evening and were able to sleep better but wondered if the heat was unbearable in the middle of summer.
