The Bluff on Whidbey Bed & Breakfast

4808 Jones Rd , Oak Harbor, WA 98277 USA (Show map)


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.

Can't get enough of the Bluff

3.2 on February 20, 2018

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.

Beautiful, dreamy spot!

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.

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!

The Best B&B ever

We stayed there for one night. Everything in this B&B was great: the warmly welcome with a cup of coffee and a deliceous cookie, the rooms lovely decorated, the hot tub in front of the rooms, the garden with a beautiful view on the water and last but not least the deliceous breakfast with norwegian eggs, bacon, wafles and fruits. thank you!

Combine a gorgeous setting with lovely amenities like heated bathroom floors, rocking chairs, comfy bed and gracious hosts who serve an out of this world breakfast and you've got The Bluff on Whidbey B&B. Wish we could have stayed forever.

Amazing Stay...Amazing View

We had the opportunity for a quick one night stay at this lovely bed and breakfast. Larry and Kathy were gracious hosts, so friendly and accommodating. The room we stayed in was large, comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was delicious! And perhaps the best part of the stay, was the breathtaking views of the cascades from the back lawn. I would highly recommend this location for a relaxing getaway!

Beutiful location and gracious hosts

Larry greeted us with fresh baked cookies when we arrived at the B&B. The room was very comfortable with a beautiful view overlooking Skagit Bay. We spent a pleasant evening sitting on the bluff watching boats head out to Deception Point. A very friendly, Rocky the resident outdoor cat was a warm companion for the chilly evening. Kathy made a spectacular breakfast in the morning.

Comfortable and relaxing

Kathy and Larry are fabulous hosts - very personable and welcoming. We were made to feel at home and everything was so comfortable and relaxing. We have been guests in the past and this visit was just as pleasant and our previous one. We will definitely come back.
