The grounds are spacious and lovely, Don and Linda are great hosts (Don took us kayaking). Breakfast was delicious. Our rooms were very comfortable and it was wonderful sitting outside on the deck and watching the sun set over the water. Mallard Cove is a great place to relax. They have WiFi if you want it, but we didn't think...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at the Inn. The grounds are beautiful, there is beach access, a gazebo, and a lovely deck overlooking the water. The room we were in had a gorgeous view of the water and a nice balcony. The owners have thought of everything, including a ziplock bag in the bathroom for taking...

At the 'end of the road', Mallard Cove is just the place to end your day. Our second visit was just as peaceful and enjoyable as the first. We looked forward to seeing Don and Linda again and enjoying her fabulous cooking. We were made comfortable in a small suite of rooms with a luxurious bath set up. After a...

Don and Linda did everything possible to make our stay the best ever. They are warm and low-key, and very good cooks. They gave us lots of privacy, the use of their kayaks, and made restaurant reservations for us. Our room was quiet, comfortable and romantic with a lovely view over the water. The house is off the beaten track...

We loved this Inn. We only stayed here for one night en route to the Olympic National Park but wish we'd stayed longer. The hosts have thought of everything- even bringing tea/coffee in bed if you wish! The setting is beautiful and we went for a lovely morning stroll along the beach with the stunning peaks of the Olympics rising...

My wife and I enjoyed two incredible nights at the Inn at Mallard Cove (Mallard Room) and were simply blow away by the scenery, location, and most importantly, the hospitality. The owners are incredilby knowledgeable about the local area, and the breakfast is to die for. Simply put: best bed and breakfast that we've ever been to - and we've...

The house was completely remodeled with every detail thoughfully created with guest comfort in mind. From the multiple sitting rooms and garden sunroom, to the spacious bedrooms with soaking tubs and...

This is a hidden treasure managed by a wonderful, family oriented couple. The personal service was the best experienced with all amenities anticipated and provided. The accommodations include a well equipped library, parlor, sunroom, 2 wood-buring fireplaces and parlor. The breakfast was fabulous! The second floor room was not large, but very adequate with a gas fireplace, outside deck and...

Bed and Breakfast. Minimum stay - two nights. Bring your camera and some boots or sneakers to walk the beach. The air is clean and fresh and wildlife abounds.

My partner and I stayed at the Inn while I was in town for a weekend conference. We selected the Inn because of the beautiful location on Puget Sound and the purported yummy, local, organic breakfasts---the Inn did not disappoint! Our room was beautiful (and we were in the most economical room with a garden view), and the other two...
