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. 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.

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.


Great location, friendly hosts!

Larry and Kathy run a wonderful B and B. First, the two units have separate entrances for privacy, and both have places (decks) to sit out and admire the beautiful view over the garden to the water. We stayed in the smaller unit and it have a nicely appointed room with a large window looking out to the garden and water. Breakfasts can be delivered right to your door and they were more than substantial and always delicious. Kathy and Larry were very friendly and helpful, going out of their way to accommodate guests. Larry was happy to help you prepare the hot tub outside, so you could take advantage of it. There are chairs and a hammock out on the bluff for the guests' relaxation and I encourage visitors to use them. Outstanding views across the bay! The B and B is located in the rural, north part of Oak Harbor, not far from Deception Bay State Park (lovely walks, ask Larry for recommendations). Oak Harbor itself is a "working" rather than "quaint" town, but nearby Coupeville can provide all the quaintness one needs. I highly recommend this B and B. The owners are considering selling for a change of lifestyle, so don't hesitate to stay here if you are looking for an excellent, relaxing place with a view. Kathy and Larry make this lovely place special.


Lovely, serene location

4.6 on July 17, 2015

We have visited several B&B's over the past year and have found them to be a great alternative to the standard hotel/motel experience. The Bluff on Whidbey was no exception to this. It is a beautiful place complete w/sweeping views of water, mountains and lovely grounds. The hosts were very warm and most accommodating, allowing us to check in earlier than their usual time. The room was nicely decorated, with all the amenities and then some. Really EVERYTHING rates 5 stars except the breakfast. Compared to others it was sufficient but rather bland, w/the exception of really good coffee and fresh, sweet strawberries and Devonshire cream served in honor of the Wimbledon tournament that was playing that weekend. A great treat! We would definitely stay there again in the future.


Wonderful quiet place

The bluff is a excellent place to stay and get away from the hustle and bustle. We enjoyed the privacy that it provided and the views were awesome.
