The Inn on the Island

The room had one of my favorite color combinations and was very well appointed.

There is no front desk or humans to show you the way at this lovely Inn. You come with your access code in hand and are greeted by this big chicken! We were happy with the no fuss process.

Room #7 had the best views, especially when you stepped out on the little deck.

The village below the Inn had everything we’d want if we hadn’t already stopped on the way in for dinner. There was a bakery that we did stop in at on our way out on Saturday. Delicious fresh choices! I wish I would have taken a picture. Restaurants, Farm Market, Wine Bar, A Small Grocers, The Market Place is a coffee house, Bakery, and Delicatessen that offers a wide variety of quality food and drink—all with an emphasis on local. Open Now: The Marketplace Tap Room—enjoy microbrews on tap. Everything you would need if you want to stay put for the whole weekend.

We would enjoy going back now that we are more familiar with the island. On Friday when we arrived we were still in a rainy pattern through the early morning hours of Saturday. As we got to mid morning on Saturday the sun was shining and the rain was gone and we enjoyed a wonderful stroll through Bloedel Reserve. I will give that property a post of it’s own.

Madam Fifi’s Tea Room in Bothell


What a lovely discovery I made today on one of my adventures, Madam Fifi’s Tea Room and Bakery located at Country Village in Bothell.


The Tea Room was decorated with all this lovely blue.


I enjoyed a half-sandwich with a salad and Earl Grey Tea. I was surprised when a plate of scones came out at the end of my meal. So surprised that I took a bite before I could photograph it. All the food I had was delicious and fresh tasting. The scones were melt in your mouth perfect with just enough cream and lemon curd. Hmmm, I wonder why I’m not losing weight!? :0)




There are lots of tea accessories for sale in the Tea Room, too.



I would recommend Madam Fifi’s Tea Room. Lana, I’d love take you here for your birthday!

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage on their site and have replaced my photos with black and grey boxes of ugliness. I’m slowly deleting those boxes from my blog and trying to update so many posts, very frustrating.
