There is a reason that practically every Trip Advisor review of this place is 5-star. Three days with hosts Don and Linda surpassed our wildest dreams of relaxation, tranquility and friendship. The home and grounds are idyllic, the food and personal service - extraordinary! There are not enough superlatives to describe our experience. It is hard to imagine leaving their...

The Inn at Mallard Cove is an earthly paradise in a permanently happy land, isolated from the outside world. From the moment you enter the winding drive canopied by trees and edged with ferns, you can sense a feeling of peace and enchantment come over you. Then in the clearing ahead you come upon the Inn, with lawns and surrounding...

The Inn at Mallard Cove is the find of a lifetime! My hubby and I just spent three nights with Linda and Don. The property is beautiful, so beautiful you may not want to leave it. Just sitting on one of the porches, looking out at the water, and mountains in the distance, WOW! The beauty is not only on...

Linda and Don created a wonderful retreat with fabulous meals. The attention to detail was amazing. The rooms were perfectly decorated, the three-course breakfast was made for royalty, and the hospitality was fantastic. The inn, high on a bluff has a spectacular view of the cove, complete with bald eagles, harbor seals, and mountains. I would recommend this inn to...

Think of it this way: if you say you're coming from Seattle on Friday at 3, Don will offer some secret back routes to avoid the traffic. That way you'll be able to arrive as planned to use the sea kayaks on a 2 hour tour of the nearby wildlife refuge. On return you'll watch sunset over Puget Sound from...

Don and Linda are the most gracious hosts you could wish for, I haven't felt so pampered in a long time. The Inn is immaculate from the beautiful bedrooms to the inviting Library to the dining room with a view of the landscaped gardens overlooking the sound. The location is spectacular and we were fortunate enough to see an eagle...

We have stayed at B and Bs all over US and Canada and can say that this was the most incredible one. The hosts are perfect, helpful, thoughtful and non intrusive, they give you your privacy. The room was large and comfortable with wonderful view. The location is quiet and gorgeous. The ultimate was the kayak tour in the morning....

If you are looking for a quiet place to relax and put your feet up, the Inn at Mallard Cove is lovely. Exquisitely decorated rooms overlook Puget Sound through a wooded setting. Hosts Linda and Don are most gracious and accommodating. They serve a delicious,mostly organic, full breakfast in a dining room over looking a flower filled patio with the...
