The Bluff on Whidbey 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.

Loved The Bluff

4.2 on May 14, 2018

Wished we could have stayed longer. The view was amazing. Comfortable bed, delicious morning scones, and great wine. Most of all loved the quiet. Don’t miss this one!

Our trip to Whidbey Island was fantastic due in no small part to The Bluff on Whidbey B&B. Jim and Robin were great. They went out of their way to ensure our stay was memorable. The view was fantastic and breakfast was wonderful. We give our highest recommendation to the Bluff on Whidbey! Rick and Terri

Great place right on the water , the Bed was so comfortable and I loved the antique looking heater that worked great.

Quaint and comfortable . I am a highly allergic person and any mold , dust or dirt will trigger my allergies, this place is spotless and even though it’s next to water no mustyness or mold . It was a pleasure to wake up in the morning to my beautiful picture window looking out over bay .

Can't get enough of the Bluff

Amazing views from dawn to dusk. Great breakfast (german pancakes) if you choose to go that route. Very clean and comfortable lodgings. Only have a shower so might be something to think about if you're a bath person. Pretty central to other great locations for being the tourist. Would recommend if you're looking for a quick getaway.

This was nice. Very quiet. Private entrance to room. Hot tub with separate towels available. Parking was minimal other guest at time didn’t have vehicle so it worked.

We loved staying here and would so again. The Cicero room was perfect for the three of us and it was lovely to see the view emerge in the morning out of the huge windows. Our daughter loved roaming in the gardens and snoozing in the hammocks. The breakfast was prepared beautifully. Comfortable linens and fluffy towels; the hot tub was an extra treat. A private and cheerful space.

Anniversary stay at The Bluff

Peaceful setting and clean, spacious, comfortable accommodations. The views from the room and property gardens were beautiful and relaxing. We enjoyed watching the boats from the bluff, and listening to the birds and Eagle. The complimentary wine and continental breakfast were tasty. We will return for a stay if ever in the area again.

Sweet and private with a view!

For our 35th anniversary we went out of our comfort zone and booked a B and B stay at The Bluff. We don't usually care for B and B's as they aren't very private, and are usually in someone's home. The Bluff has two guest rooms that are a separate unit from the main house with private entrances and very tastefully furnished. The gardens were lovely with relaxing hammocks and chairs to enjoy the ocean view. Robin and Jim were great hosts! I recommend upgrading for at least one breakfast to their spectacular breakfast!! It's definitely yummy!! We would stay here again!
