Eagles Nest Inn Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #7 of 16 Langley B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 27, 2012

We stayed at the Eagles Nest for two evenings. While the inn is a bit out of town, the grounds are beautifully kept, peaceful and have a gorgeous view. Joanne and Jerry were great hosts with many recommendations and were a great help. Breakfasts were interesting and tasty. Our room, on the bottom floor, while it did not have a distant water view, overlooked several bird feeders. Paths around the grounds were pretty and there was easy access to other walking trails.
We would return in a heartbeat.

This charming, unusual house near Saratoga Woods (miles of public hiking trails) and overlooking scenic Saratoga passage is a pleasant and memorable place to stay. I loved the NW forest-scene murals they had painted on the oddly shaped (octagonal?) grand living room, and found the furniture in the "Forest" room--made from fallen branches and logs reclaimed in Olympic National Forest--picturesque (if not necessarily comfortable!). The hosts were extremely helpful with the limited 'to dos' of sleepy Whidbey Island, and put together a decent breakfast. It isn't cheap, but if you get annoyed by slick 'come to the woods and relax' money-making institutions, you'll probably be happy here.

Room Tip: The "Forest Room" has a private porch, up a little staircase from the spa deck. I was bike...

We were very happy with the Eagle's Nest Inn. We stayed in the top room with windows on all sides. There was a lovely view through the tall trees to the Sound, a nice deck and many carvings and statues of eagles. The property is meticulously maintained. The breakfasts were different each day and very special renditions of eggs and pancakes.

The property is lovely and the rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The Eagle's Nest room, where we were, is a bit small and awkwardly laid out, and you can't see much of the bay or mountains beyond from its deck, but with binoculars (supplied by the inn if you didn't bring your own) you can watch the birds at the feeders.

We'd recommend one of the lower, larger rooms. The additional light from the wrap around windows in Eagle's Nest wasn't worth the smaller space. And I'm not a fan of coffee makers in the bathroom (where there isn't much space to begin with).

Upon arriving, we were greeted by the smell of paint. They had just been painting, and were going to paint the next day. We understand that maintenance has to occur, and we know that the season for this isn't long. I'm just not sure you should accept guests on painting days. and I felt we should have been told ahead of time because we really couldn't be comfortably at the inn during the day.

The use of the inn wouldn't have been much of an issue had we found Whidbey Island more interesting. When we found Deception Pass park to be so long to get to, and when we found the beaches and the towns a bit dull.

We also expected to find some hiking trails accessible from the inn itself, and found that you had to drive to any decent ones in the immediate area.

And finally, the breakfast, while tasty, was a bit inflexible. There was a single seating at 9 AM, and we waited for the kitchen door to be opened to let us in. We felt we had to wait for everyone to be served each course before eating it. Jerry served and refilled the coffee, which seems nice, but was also restrictive. Nothing wrong with a pot of coffee on the table to pass around or on a buffet table to get when you want it.

Jerry was helpful in telling us that we should try to leave early for our Anacortes ferry, but then didn't help us speed up our breakfast by giving permission to eat when served or by serving us together.

And finally, and I hesitate to even mention this, no other B&B felt the need to tell us that their day started early and that they'd prefer not to be bothered in the evening.

In summary, we don't see much point in visiting Whidbey Island and we found other Islands to be much lovelier, quieter, with much more to do. Our disappointment was both in the inn and and island.

We stayed at the Eagles Nest for four nights, the first in the Eagles Nest room and the last three in the Saratoga room. We liked the Saratoga better. The main positive of the Eagles Nest room was more windows and more light (the Saratoga is a little dark). However, the Saratoga is more spacious and elegant – overall, much more comfortable.

Jerry and Joanne and experienced, meticulous innkeepers. The inn and the grounds are spotless and extremely well maintained. The appointments inside are clearly selected with an eye to detail and integration. In particular, the amenities in the Saratoga are great. The mattress is first-class. All-cotton linens are a rare plus. It has a huge walk-in closet. The only criticism I have is the window treatments. Because the room doesn’t get much light (too many trees and not enough windows), the window treatments, when open, should completely uncover the window and the French doors to the balcony so more light can come in.

Joanne makes a delicious two-course breakfast each morning. Just like with everything else, she’s well organized and gives a lot of thought to her cooking. I would have preferred that she didn’t add salt to the main dish and let the guests add salt if they wish, but I confess I’m much more sensitive to sodium than the average guest.
Just outside the dining room, there is a rather elaborate bunch of feeders for birds and chipmunks. We saw some rabbits, too. We could see them from our room. It was a great deal of fun watching them all, and occasionally it reminded me of a Disney cartoon, and I expected them all to break out in song. We also saw a deer and her fawn, but they ate the vegetation, not from the feeders.

Overall, it’s a lovely place. Although I gave it a rating of 4, if I could, I’d give it a 4.5.

This is one of the best B&B's we have visited. The home is warm, inviting, and in a beautiful location. Jerry and Joanne are great hosts and Joanne's breakfasts are delicious. We loved the view from our room and the bed rated a #10. The property is home to lots of birds and other little critters native to the area which provides lots of entertainment for nature lovers all day long. And Langley offers plenty of shopping for every taste. Be sure to dine at Primo Bistro while in Langley--we ate dinner there both nights!

On our first stay at the Eagle’s Nest Inn we fell in love. Not with each other mind you (that was years ago) but with the beauty of this B&B. My husband and I enjoy staying at B&B’s because of the amount of local information gained through conversation with other guests and especially the owners. We were not disappointed at the Eagle’s Nest. Jerry and Joanne were delightful hosts. They shared information about their beloved island and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring their suggestions. Jerry was very helpful getting us around the island. Armed with maps (we got to keep) he showed us each point of interest and guided our uninformed minds to the right roads. The Inn is wonderful. Immaculately kept and beautifully decorated. The Inn’s outdoor surroundings are forest, quiet, critters, forest, critters, quiet. We have enjoyed staying at this Inn about four times and each time has been a pleasure. We have typically stayed in the Forest Room because we love the “twig” furniture and the bed is very comfortable. Joanne prepares delectable breakfasts that are beautifully presented. And I loved eating adjacent to the kitchen so while Joanne is preparing food she can still participate in conversation at the table. She does this with serenity…no hectic get-the-food-on-the-table atmosphere, no dishes piled everywhere….how does she do it!?
