Our 10-day stay, occasioned by art workshops in nearby Mt. Vernon, at the Wild Iris was so enjoyable that I don't know where to start. So I'll just list a few things that make this inn so special to us.
Our room, #106, had a back porch, screened by Asian pear trees on one side and overlooking the neighboring family farm, and it was a pleasant place to relax with a glass of wine on a late, warm afternoon. (Speaking of warm, not all rooms have air conditioning, which can be an issue when the hot and often sultry summer days don't cool off much at night.)
Coffee and tea are available in the cozy common room before breakfast, which began with a bowl of local berries with yogurt and granola, with a side of just-baked muffin or breakfast bread; the follow-up, an egg dish - always different and always delicious - completed this generous meal. Then, in the unlikely event we craved anything later in the day, giant cookies - packed with dried fruit, chocolate chips and nuts - appearted later in our room. And as La Conner is quite small, good restaurants for lunch and dinner are within short walking distance.
The best part of our stay is that we felt truly "at home." The owners and staff made us feel like family, were endlessly helpful and congenial, and we look forward impatiently to being their guests again next summer.
