“Lovely, relaxing, hospitality as an art form”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

What a wonderful place to stay. We stayed in the small apartment downstairs available with a living room, two bedrooms - one, a Master with a kingsize bed and one with two twins. The garden is just lovely, creative and whimsical. A great place to sit with morning coffee. The shower was easy to use - the towels thick. I am somewhat disabled due to bad hips and the bathroom was so very easy to access.
Hospitality? For Bill and Cindy, it is an art form. Gracious, concerned about comfort and enjoyment. Unobtrusive. The breakfasts were delicious, fresh, healthful and substantial. Above the Sound was a pleasure and totally, completely recommend it. No reservations whatsoever.

Room Tip: The Suite downstairs has a kingsized bed in a Master Bedroom - manly man cave. The twin beds were i...

We would highly recommend this B&B! Guests have their choice of a 2 bedroom suite with a separate living area or a single bedroom with private bath. We chose the latter and it was beautifully decorated. Loved the double sink in the bathroom and the bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was served in a beautiful sun room. It was very spacious with gorgeous views of the sound...the perfect spot for a relaxing breakfast. Breakfast was excellent and beautifully presented. Bill and Cindy were gracious hosts ensuring that we had a wonderful visit. We can't wait to go back!

Very nice B&B, pleasant and comfy & clean. Decor was soothing, and bed super comfortable. I had the upstairs room adjacent to the sunroom, which is where breakfast is served & which has a beautiful view & where I had access to a small frig as well. Bill & Cindy were so accomodating and Bill seemed to go the extra mile, helped with luggage; even chilled some wine I'd bought at one point! The grounds are so inviting, lush green, gorgeous flowers & plants.
Only drawback was a fairly noisy road and a fan helped~ Do stay here!

I was attending my HS reunion and staying for the weekend. What a lovely place to stay. Room was clean and beautifully decorated. I hadn't eaten lunch and was given a snack and drinks. Had my own parking spot, and private entrance. Breakfast was served upstairs in a sun room with nice views of the sound, soft music, delicious coffee and juice, and beautiful decor. Just a really comfortable yet classy atmosphere. Breakfast was beyond expectations. Gourmet and better than any restaurant I had ever been to. More than worth the extra $. Landscaping was impeccable with a variety of flowers and trees. Bathroom: plenty of hot water, double sinks, full-length mirror, and very clean. Comfy victorian style dress shirts and robe available in the closet.
Owners are super nice, make sure that you are taken care of, and that you are satisfied with the room and meal. Will definitely stay again.

The accomodations are very comfortable & cozy and the owners, Bill and Cindy are extremely accomodating and friendly. The breakfast was incredible! The meal was not only delicious, but it was "picture worthy". Truly it was the best breakfast either of us have had in years! We appreciated the attention to detail offered & the price made it a great value!

Room Tip: There are two rooms, one with a king bed and one with two twins. We had the room with the king bed...

We have just returned from attending our daughter's wedding in Tacoma. We stayed in a B&B in Steilacoom. Above the Sound, this was the nicest B&B we have ever stayed in. The place was cozy with your own small living room with gas fire place, separate bedroom with king size bed and another bedroom with 2 twin beds which my son stayed in at the opposite end of the hall.
Bill made a beautiful breakfast for the wedding party of 9 the morning of the wedding. This could not of been done better in a fine restaurant. We had fresh grapefruit dishes, french toast with apples. Candles on the table and little flowers on each of the plates demonstrated he went out of the way to make the wedding day start out lovely.
A separate entrance in the back, covered parking, what more can you ask for www.abovethesound.com. We give the place a 5 star rating, and we will definitely return when we visit our daughter. Out of luck it was 1/2 mile from their home.
Bill went out of his way to provide us with to go breakfasts for our early trip to the airport. Coffee cups, home made coffee cake, fresh fruit and juice. It was a good find. I recommend and you want be sorry. Also, the view is beautiful, you can see Puget Sound from the place.
