My husband and I chose the MoonDance Inn for our 25th wedding anniversary, and we are so glad that we did!!! :D It is a beautiful bnb right on a huge lake in northern Washington. The drive up from the Seattle area was spectacular. When you arrive, the Inn is in a quiet little alcove next to the lake. The views from the living and dining areas as well as their huge beautiful balcony/deck are breathtaking!!! The breakfasts that they catered to your individual needs/preferences was spectacular; and the owners are super helpful and really nice. They have charming and delightfully decorated rooms and bathrooms as well as really nice toiletries for their guests. The walks around the lake, through forests as well as near waterfalls and across an old stone bridge were spectacular. The MoonDance Inn is also wonderfully located next to many things to do, including: old town Bellingham, the mall/shopping, lots of nice restaurants, the Puget Sound, Mt Baker, as well as lots of lakes and forests. We had an amazing time and wouldn't have gone anywhere else!!! :D Thanks everyone at the MoonDance Inn for a special experience!!!
My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights during the tulip festival in April. The place is very inviting -- wish we could have stayed 1 more day to enjoy the fireplace and a good book. We had massages on-site which were fantastic, and the breakfasts were a nice start to the day. Restaurants all within walking distance. Alvin is very knowledgeable, and the girls were very sweet.
We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Heron Inn and Spa. Alvin and team went above and beyond in terms of making us feel welcomed and making sure we had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our stay. The Inn is beautiful and perfect location in downtown La Conner.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Tucker Inn. We stayed in the Secret Passage room -- which was sadly lacking in secret passages. The breakfasts were superb -- we are still talking about them. Our stay was quiet and restful. The accommodations were comfortable and clean. Could have used a little more water pressure in the shower -- but I imagine it is the same pretty much everywhere on the island.
My stepmom and I stayed here two nights. We came to see the tulips and putter around La Conner. The rooms were quiet and beautiful. There was a fruit and yogurt buffet with a sit down breakfast of quiche one day and frittata the next, both served with grilled vegetables. Very healthy. The staff was very nice. We hated to leave!
I contacted Al via email & phone to verify that our special needs would be taken care of. He was fabulous and helped in every way. It was easy to care for our aging dog on this trip, with access to the porch and backyard just outside our door. Our bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was spacious with a great shower. We enjoyed the living room fireplace. The location was good and onsite parking available. Food was healthy and tasty. Enjoyed the egg dishes both days. Loved the self-serve chia pudding, yogurt, and nice variety of the freshest fruit you could find! The only thing I would change is to increase the portion of side vegetables. It was a very relaxing experience and we will return.
Loved our stay at the Blue Herron! Alvin, the innkeeper is a hoot and his little dog Lola is the official greeter. Rooms were spacious and clean and the staff was attentive and helpful. The breakfast was so good and we felt right at home. We will definitely be back.
We enjoyed out stay, was pleasantly surprised, stayed In the Heron master suite, room was beautiful, Clean , cozy, breakfast was healthy and delicious! The staff and Innkeeper we're friendly and accommodating ! Will definitely tell our friends, and we will be Returning again in the near future !
Lovely building, fantastic staff, cozy rooms, and a delicious breakfast; what could be better than that? My mini fridge was not working right so I got moved to a bigger, nicer room. I was given a ride over to the Quilt Museum to meet someone so I wouldn't have to find parking. I was accommodated for early check in and late check out. I had several breakfast options with offers of more if I wanted it. The bedding was plush and I appreciated the down comforter at the foot of the bed. The Inn is quiet with plenty of parking. Wi-fi was excellent and fast. Seeds is the best restaurant in the area. It is one block away from the Heron Inn in a historic building. The Heron Inn and meals at Seeds is my favorite local getaway any time of year. I feel like I've really gotten away from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind when I visit. Just an FYI: the town of La Conner uses a town emergency siren to summon volunteer firefighters. I grew up in tornado country so was a little freaked out as it sounds similar. A quick Google told me what it was for.
The staff were very friendly and accommodating. My queen room was nicely furnished and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the small fridge was helpful for storing snacks. The breakfast was delicious and filling. It's a very quiet and peaceful inn.
I come at least once a year to Bellingham. There is NO OTHER PLACE for me than the Hidden Log House. It is such a GEM! I love the spaciousness of the suite, the decorations, the set up with fridge, toaster, coffee maker, water dispenser, microwave and that I can bring my own breakfast to save some money (as I like to stay at least a week), the beautiful grounds, all the cute animals and the fabulous hosts who always make me feel most welcome. The locations is great, out in the country, secluded and quiet yet only 15 minutes to town and entertainment. If you plan on coming to Bellingham, you should really give it a try – you won’t be disappointed! I LOVE it!!!
Our Anniversary celebration at Sundara West was an extraordinary get-away weekend with lots of time to read, listen to the rain, wander thru the gardens, soak in the outdoor hot tub and swim in the inside pool, catch a movie, enjoy unhurried conversations and experience some truly exquisite breakfasts. Highly recommended!
We enjoyed a lovely stay at the Hidden Log House B&B. It was very peaceful and most restful. Our hosts while available were not intrusive ... it was as if we had the place to ourselves! The rooms were cheerful and well appointed. We would definitely consider staying here again. Abby, one of the resident dogs was wonderful company when I would go for quiet walks!
Our stay at Sundara West was one of the best stays we have had at a B&B. Inn keepers were absolutely wonderful, beautiful grounds, and incredible amenities including indoor pool and outdoor jacuzzi with views of Mt. Baker. Wonderful place to come and relax after a long day of hiking. We will certainly return to Sundara West if our travels bring us back to this area. Would highly recommend.
“Everything was perfect! The six days went fast. It seemed like we had checked in and then it was time to leave. The Hidden Log has a special place in our hearts. If we came to WA many times, we'd go out our way to stay here. We were made to feel welcome from the first minute we arrived. Thank you so much. Larry, Pat and Loretta.”
We recently stayed for two nights at the Tucker Inn House. We were surprised and pleased with the accommodations, food and service. We have told our friends about the wonderful experience and look forward to returning. BTW - reservations can be made for the Washington State ferry, thus reducing some of the travel stress.
I have stayed here several times and plan on coming back again because I simply love this very unique place: the secluded location, the animals, the walks in the woods, sitting at the pond reading a book and listening to nature, the very friendly hosts, the clean and comfortable accommodation, being able to do your own breakfast, the list is just too long to mention it all. I am glad i found this retreat and can only recommend it to anyone looking for something truly special.
The Tucker House is quaint and conveniently located to the ferry and Friday Harbor. From check-in to departure, the staff was helpful and friendly and the cookies in the room were excellent. The room had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. We were shown to our room and soon after we arrived, we realized it was not the room we reserved. But a phone call to the staff resolved that minor issue very quickly and we relocated to the correct room. Breakfast was really good, especially the mock eggs Benedict and sausage. Their home made granola was also delicious. We were provided an overview of the local attractions with directions, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Our stay was short but we were able to visit many interesting sites and enjoy several short hikes. We would most definitely stay at the Tucker House again.
We paid $190 a night for the Goose in the Pond unit last weekend. The facility was nice. But, the breakfast was not! Being in a cottage, we were supposed to stay in and have breakfast delivered. The website’s descriptions and the photos on the Inn's website are why we chose your B & B (fresh fruit, granola and yogurt, chef-made hot entrée of the day and a dessert). What we got was more like a prisoner's ration. A couple months' in advance, I requested 2 vegetarian breakfast, one with no eggs (the website and the person on the phone said they're happy to accommodate). We got a tiny amount of fresh fruit, never got any yogurt, about 5 tablespoons of granola. One day, the "chef-made" entree was 2 Morningside's sausage patties each, one egg for me, nothing for my husband. The next day, same but the entree of the day was one dry and tasteless savory bread. On our last day, we both got scrambled eggs & ham (what kind of chef thinks ham is vegetarian?). This is not the advertised "sumptuous", "full gourmet breakfast". Nothing at all like on the photos!
We rented the "Roche Harbor Cottage" at Tucker House Inn for a quiet three-night stay ($1007.43 w tax). Getting to and from Friday Harbor required lengthy waiting and travel on a Washington State ferry so this was a significant commitment of both time and money. Our suite was on the lower floor. The owners installed a hot tub on a wood deck located immediately outside and above (within 2-3 feet) of our bedroom window. Since there was no air conditioning, the window had to remain open at night to cool the small and stuffy bedroom. On our first night, we prepared for bed around 10:30. The hot tub just above us was going full blast. It took three phone calls between 10:41PM and 11:22PM before the hot tub was shut down and we did not have a good night. We asked for a full refund or cancellation of the reservation. We were told all management would do was to issue a $180 credit. We decided to risk staying on. On the third night were awakened well after 10:00 by grinding and screeching from same hot tub. That issue was not resolved by management until well after 11:00. On all three nights, we had to plug our ears with tissues to muffle water dripping from the hot tub onto our roof a couple of feet ourside our window. Hot tub aside, our refrigerator was so noisy that we were forced to unplug it at night. There are a number of hot tubs scattered around the premises and most, if not all, are mounted on wooden decks attached to wooden structures. This is extremely poor design and there is no way anyone close to these tubs is going to have "quiet enjoyment" or privacy. We have appreciated many inn keepers who have respect for their guests and would have bent over backwards to make things right. The innkeepers at THI&HHS are not among them as they refused to compensate us properly for the unpleasant experience, extensive aggravation, and loss of sleep on two of the nights.. We would recommend looking elsewhere for a quiet enjoyment and privacy.
Our guest host welcomed us warmly, our room was extremely comfortable and inviting, and breakfast in the Garden Cafe was delicious. We also ate at Coho Restaurant and enjoyed an intimate dining experience with superb entrees. A lovely visit to San Juan and Tucker House.
