I must warn you up front, in all likelihood, this will be a long review..too many wonderful things about our stay to say it in a few short sentences! Perhaps it was the crackling fire, on a cold, grey, rainy Thanksgiving weekend. Or the perfectly scaled rooms that were brimming with books, and overstuffed sofas to curl up in. With... More

Attention to details make this B&B a notch above the rest.. The owners have achieved what few others have.. the feeling that you were visiting the English aunt whom you haven't seen in awhile.. Cozy and inviting ... personal memorabilia make it so. Along with a genuinely warm welcome.. and fresh baked cookies, the fireplaces and various seating options make... More

Had a lovely stay with Don and Linda. They have a lovely home right on the Sound. I enjoyed spending time with them and learning about how most of their property is protected forever by a conservation easement - including very valuable commercial oyster beds off their beach! There is a commercial oyster farm harvesting oysters next door....you'd have no... More

After a hectic, yet enjoyable day exploring Olympia, my husband and I were happy to escape from the highway traffic and finally wind down the driveway through the woods to The Inn at Mallard Cove. It was just a few exits north of the city, yet wonderfully tucked away. The backdrop, with the English gardens, forest and the Puget Sound... More

My wife and I spent a weekend at the Inn at Mallard Cove in late September 2016. We had a great time. The facility is top notch, the location is stunning, and the Inn Keepers (Don and Linda) were wonderful. Don't even think about missing the breakfast at this B&B. The food and fellowship were beyond compare. Here is a... More

I just spent a lovely night at the Inn at Mallard Cove and cannot recommend it highly enough. At the end of the road and down an unpaved driveway you feel transported to a fairytale setting. The water views at the back of the house are spectacular, and it is just a short walk down a wooded trail to reach... More

A delightful facility with wonderful hosts. Don and Linda were available for everything, including recovering a "left behind sweater". The room was very comfortable with a spacious bathroom in addition to an excellent view of the cove. Easy walking along the shore and easy access to Olympia. A special "getaway"!

Our daughter and her husband treated my wife and I to two nights at the Inn at Mallard Cove. The photo will show the quaintness we saw as we arrived. There is also a photo of the house from the deck overlooking the water towards Anderson Island. We must have watched the tide go out and come back in several... More

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.
