About

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.

Beautiful

5 on September 18, 2014

This is a wonderful secluded b&b on whidbey. The room was clean and well kept. The breakfast was amazing (French toast). And, the views were incredible from the backyard and the room. A great place for a romantic couple of days on the island!


A Beautiful B&B With a Beautiful View

4.6 on September 03, 2014

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed it immensely. Our room was on the upper floor, very spacious with a wonderful view from the deck past the gardens to the water. Our hosts were very gracious and helpful in all ways. Peaceful and quiet location (its located far enough away from the naval air station so the noise from the jet flyovers is not an issue). An excellent B&B for a vacation to Whidbey Island.


One of our best B&B's

4.4 on August 26, 2014

We loved staying at the Bluff on Whidbey, it's a beautiful B&B in a lovely place. Our room and bathroom were spotless and the bed extremely comfortable. The view from our room was incredible. There were so many personal touches, like the letter addressed to us, the cookies and chocolates and the robes and shoes for the hot tub. Larry is a great host and a very interesting man, Rocky the cat is a sweetie too, although I suspect he's never going to give Larry his credit card details. Our only regret is that we weren't able to stay longer. Highly recommended - if you are looking for somewhere to stay in the area you really couldn't do better than the Bluff on Whidbey. We've stayed in a lot of B&Bs in America and all over the world, this was one of the best.

Great View & Super Hosts

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.


Great B'fast and the Most Friendly Host

5 on May 20, 2014

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!


Fantastic view, lovely breakfast

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.


Exceeds Expectations!

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.


Northwest at its Best!
