Reviewed 13 July 2014

On the last day of a seven-day cycling trip, I was really tired of camping so two friends and I rented a room (we were lucky to get a cancellation) at the Saratoga Inn on Whidbey Island in Washington state. It is a gorgeous, modernized (not fussy, not outdated), comfortable bed and breakfast with nicely appointed and spacious rooms (ours was the smallest and it was still comfortable). Beds were great, bathroom lovely, breakfast in the morning absolutely delicious. Sara, the hostess when we checked in, had just moved here herself and was an incredibly lovely and gracious hostess. I will absolutely return to this inn and I highly recommend it. Besides, how can you beat sitting on the porch on a rocking chair looking across at Mount Rainier and the Cascade Mountains?

Room Tip: Not sure... we got the only available room due to a cancellation.

Gosh, thank you for giving the Saratoga Inn a try but we should mention that while the Inn faces the Cascade Mountain range, one cannot see Mt Rainier, which is further southward. We are pleased you found your room "not-fussy" and your expectations were met. It is always a joy to see cyclers at the Inn and we hope to see you again there again someday. Go easy!

We can't say enough about the Saratoga Inn!! Take it from returning customers. You will not be disappointed.

<> Rooms are all wonderful! If you can, get one with a view of the bay.

<> Professional chef provides a very satisfy breakfast every day.

<> Every afternoon from 4-5pm wine and professional prepared appetizer. Make sure to enjoy it on the outdoor covered porch rocking chairs overlooking the bay

<> Does it get any better than this?

<> One strong suggestion! Please, change out the Frank
Sinatra era music that plays daily in the background.

Thank you for your repeated visits to the Inn and sharing your "Accolades!" We will take your advice and vary the music more ... feel free to mention your specific preferences at the front desk during your next stay; we aim to please! About the only music we do not play is hip-hop or rap ... light Jazz and classical are the Inn's favorites. We do tend to get stuck on Frank, Mel Torme and Diane Krall rather often. Come back again soon!

In the last ten years, I have visited the Saratoga Inn six times - either with my husband or with a girl friend. The front porch with the rocking chairs are charming and a similar view of the water and mountains can be seen from the inside of the gathering room windows. The afternoon hors d'oeuvres are homemade as is the tasty buffet breakfast. The rooms are appointed nicely; the staff is friendly; the water is close for a waterfront walk on grass; shops and restaurants are just a block away - your visit will be very relaxed - you won't want to leave.

Your loyalty over the years is very much appreciated; thank you for sharing your thoughts with others through TA. Many guests share your appreciation of the porch and rockers as a place to enjoy some easy "porch-talk," while viewing the Saratoga Passage and the Cascade mountains from a high bluff perspective. We are pleased to hear that it is one of your favorite spots at the Inn. Thank you for all your visits .... we'll look after the Inn while you are away. Come back soon!

The Saratoga Inn: A Destination

After 15 years of visiting Langley,
the Saratoga Inn was a new experience for us.

We stayed in Room One on the main floor.
The room was spotlessly clean, quiet and
attractively decorated.

In the late afternoon, we met other
guests in the friendly common room where we enjoyed
a glass of wine and delightful hors d’oeuvres.

Each morning our buffet style breakfast included a choice
of crepes, fresh fruit, muesli, eggs, roulades and pastries.

From the Saratoga Inn it’s a two-minute walk to Langley Village,
where you’ll find art, antiques and galleries together with a
variety of restaurants and mercantile offerings.

The Inn’s extraordinary attention to detail is
illustrated in both the peaceful rooms and the
extraordinary breakfasts created by the in-house chef.

The difference is in the details and the Saratoga Inn
focuses on the your experience from
your bed to your breakfast, from comfort to cleanliness,
and from price to priorities. We’ll be back!

PS There's no pool to review at the Saratoga Inn.

Thank you for so many positive points and observations. You are memorable guests and we can imagine other guests enjoyed meeting you during breakfast time while enriching their stay at the Inn as well. The "two-minute walk" into the village is an important aspect of the Inn; one that, we hope guests will appreciate when visiting this small seaside town of Langley. While you come from a most delightful city, Portland, Langley is a refreshing retreat with is hometown authenticity, lack of parking meters or traffic lights, and numerous friendly pedestrians ready to engage you with a smile or a chat ... you can even jaywalk while roaming the nooks and crannies of the Village without fear of being run over or getting a citation of any sort. Many guests park their car and forget about it for a couple of days while enjoying small town living for a spell.

One of our favorite retreats is Portland, also a very pedestrian friendly and vibrant town (City) with so many terrific restaurants. We all need a variety of retreats and we are most pleased that you find the Saratoga Inn to be one of your destinations ... come back again ... this fall time! Happy travels ....

From the time we walked in the door we felt relaxed and at home! We had two rooms for 2 nights, as we took our son and his wife with us for the weekend away. Both rooms had great views of the beach, marina and ocean. Each had fireplaces, comfy beds, great decor and attention to detail...including little baskets of new magazines to enjoy while snuggled up reading with morning coffee! We loved the ample and delicious breakfast buffet each morning! The staff were friendly and helpful giving us advice regarding the area. The Inn is literally right around the corner from the delightful town of Langely with it's little shops, galleries, restaurants, and cozy art boutiques. We loved every minute of our stay. The living room area has great spots for sitting to enjoy just each other's company or enjoy a chat with other guests. ( We did both!) We hope to return again!

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the water!

"Loved every minute of your stay" ... we love every word of your review! This is what we hope and wish for each and every guest to experience .... have someone else prepare your breakfast, relax in a cozy, clean room, enjoy the high bluff water and mountain views and perhaps meet some other interesting guests. You did all that times two. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and please do come back again ... Happy Summertime!

My wife and I stayed here 2 days for our wedding anniversary. Our room was spacious and the view of Saratoga Passage terrific. Their happy wine hour from 4 -5 was appreciated. Their breakfasts were wonderful and I even bought the cook's breakfast cook book to try to replicate some of the deliciuos dishes we had there. It is conveniently located for walking all over Langley, a delightful village.

I traveled for business to Langley for over a month and couldn't have chosen a nicer place. Jenny, Jim and the entire team provided wonderful hospitality and made me feel like family every night when I returned from a long workday.
Saratoga Inn is a warm and inviting place to stay, extremely well-kept and in a beautiful location overlooking Saratoga Passage. The evening tea time is very nice with carefully crafted hors d'oeuvres, cheese, wine and small desserts. Langley is a great little town to explore in the evenings and on weekends.
Thanks, I will be back for weekend visits soon!

Well after coming back to the Inn 4 weeks in a row, you most certainly feel like family to us as well. We are so very pleased you found the Inn, our staff, and Langley comfortable, friendly and hospitable; do come back again! As a guest, we, and our staff, all found you to be very polite, appreciative of even small gestures of the Inn's hospitality and a pleasure to be around. You are a model "five-ball" guest. Thank you for your positive review ... Happy summertime! Fall-time is a nice time to come back to Langley ...
