The Bluff on Whidbey B & B is a secluded, private retreat with views of mountains, ocean bay, and a country garden. Enjoy the tranquility of island life sitting in our hot tub on a chilly clear night, or lying in the hammock on a warm summer's day. Either way, the view is incredible! Our location on north Whidbey Island is the launching point for the North Cascades Mountains, San Juan Islands, famous Deception Pass, and the scenic Skagit Valley of Washington State. We are 200 feet above the shores of Puget Sound near the swirling waters and towering fir and cedar forests of Deception Pass State Park, 90 minutes north of Seattle. New as of 2012 ~ Lower rates for multiple night stays ~ Plus ….. Introducing the Cicero suite ~ New kitchen facilities to allow for a convenient and efficient stay in our most luxurious room.

A very nice location on Whidbey with exceptional quiet views over Puget Sound with Mt. Baker in the distance. Hosts were very nice, accommodating and professional. Overall a super experience.

This place was great. Great location close to deception pass, great view from the room as well as a great yard with seating to sit outside and enjoy the view. When we arrived we were greeted with warm cookies and recommendations for dinner. With a brief tutorial on the hot tub and the room, the host got out of our hair which I thought was very considerate and respectful. Very clean and comfortable with a nice gas stove to heat the room and a personalized note with our names at the top to welcome us. Thoughtful and a nice touch. Breakfast was delivered at an agreed upon time and consisted of spinach fritata, 2 warm blueberry muffins, sausage, warm fruit compote, coffee and your choice of juice. Delish! We stayed one night, but will definitely be back to stay for an extended time. Well worth what I thought was a reasonable price. Thanks Bluff on Whidbey!

The owners are personable, friendly, & helpful; they encourage full use of the property inc. hammock, garden, hot tub. Amazing view & excellent accommodations I wish the back window had a screen to open for fresh air.
We greatly appreciate the time you took to give us this nice review and we also apologize re: the screen....... you caught us in the in-between time.... it was getting warm and we did not have the screens up, but they are now up and the windows can be safely opened without letting in bugs.

Larry and Kathy run a fantastic B&B. Everything about the stay was amazing - the room, location, view, food, proprietors. The online pictures and descriptions do not do this place justice. We hope to return in the future to experience it all again and get away from our regular hustle and bustle.

This is truly an amazing B&B, especially considering the price. Great location, great amenities, and terrific service. I would be hard pressed to go anywhere else then Larry and Kathy's. Highly recommend TWO things - get the room on top (great private deck that looks over the bluff), and if you are interested in some adventure and wanna get down to the beach in style (should go around low tide) ask them about the trail to mordor :)
