On a recent business trip to Seattle, i had the pleasure in stopping in the Meritage Meadows Inn for a couple of nights. The hospitality and the Inn including the cleanliness is much better than many 5 star hotels I've stopped in. Bob and Karen, make you feel most welcome in their home, and nothing was any trouble. I can't recommend this hotel enough. !!! People thinking of stopping and working in the Redmond area, this hotel is 3 miles from Microsoft campus, and costs $10 in a taxi from the inn. Without doubt on another trip to Redmond/Seattle, i will be stopping by the Inn again.
Every hotel and inn should be like this, clean, friendly, with excellent personal service. Bob and Karen have a beautiful inn in a gorgeous setting. I had the best breakfast there. They are very helpful and have all the amenities of a big hotel, but in a gorgeous setting that is a home away from home. Just come down in the morning and have a great breakfast of crepes with raspberry filling with some sausage and a couple of home made apricot scones, along with home made apple cider, get some coffee from the counter, grab a water bottle to go. Later come back and grab a couple of cookies and go sit out back and enjoy the beautiful view of the back yard. Other amenities are WiFi, a nice library, great entertainment room with a bunch of DVDs, an exercise room, big bathroom with Jacuzzi with jets, towel warmer, you name it and Bob and Karen will provide for you.
Our family stayed 2 nights at Meritage Meadows. We enjoyed a hike nearby, attended a wonderful concert at Marymoor Park, and spent a day wine tasting. By the way, Bob is a great winemaker in his own right! A really beautiful inn and the grounds are lush and green. We even had epic weather! Bob and Karen obviously enjoy what they do and truly care about the quality of their guests' experience. It was certainly worth the trip all the way from Hawaii!
I was visiting Redmond for work and stumbled across the Meritage while looking for somewhere to stay. I was due to stay down town on my second visit and chose to stay here instead. Bob and Karen are great hosts, and they really make you feel welcome.
Message to all travelers to the Seattle area: this is a guaranteed joy with its high-quality facilities and grounds, the lush forest setting, proximity to Redmond and Seattle and beyond and, above all, the great hosting and cuisine prepared by Bob and Karen. Our family reunion group of four fully enjoyed our 4-day, with each day introduced by an inventive and delicious gourmet breakfast. Bob shared his time with us when necessary to provide guidance on exploring the area. He also went out of his way to assure an (very) early morning taxi departure to the airport. All told: a wonderful stay. Thank you Karen and Bob.
Outstanding! It was my first stay at a B and B. It was spectacular; very clean, food was excellent and the outside property beautiful. Great setting, the Inn keepers were charming and the whole experience was fabulous. I'm afraid other B&B's won't compare to Meritage Meadows Inn, now.. the 'queen' is spoiled.
We spent the night at Meritage Meadows and were surprised by the warm welcome and personal service. The grounds and building are well kept and along with the detail oriented service, create an atmosphere of calm and relaxation. The best part for us was that we were made to feel at ease whether we chose to be with everyone else or just be on our own. Thank you for the respite from a hectic busy life!
My husband & I drove up from Olympia for just an evening out. The property is amazing. It's just outside of town, but feels like you're deep in the forest! Bob & Karen go above and beyond from the land, the home, the wine (!) and the food! The room was very cozy, love the heated towel warmer! Breakfast was the highlight. Bob made his own special version of a time tested favorite.We will be back and recommend this to anyone wishing to get away from the hustle and bustle of life! ~Brandi & Bryce
Meritage Meadows is in a wonderful location, with a host who went beyond accomodating to make our stay most enjoyable. Breakfasts were incredible and wine tastings delightful. The rooms were luxurious and the grounds simply amazing. Thanks, Meritage Meadows, for a delightful stay.
My sisters, niece and I stayed at Meritage Meadows June 2-3, it was great! Bob and Karen were very nice, great breakfast, wonderful rooms, very peaceful and beautiful gounds and rooms. The Walla Walla room was great, had everything we needed - heated towel rack and bathroom floor a definite plus! I'd definitely recommend it!
My husband and I stayed at Meritage Meadows for two nights over Memorial Day weekend, and are very happy that we did. Bob and Karen are lovely people who go out of their way to make sure that their guests feel welcome. Also, the breakfasts are above and beyond the norm. Very highly recommended to travelers looking for a relaxing home away from home with some genuinely nice as their hosts.
Bob and Karen have an outstanding bed and breakfast. This was our second stay and we stayed in the Walla Walla this time and it was as exceptional as the rooms in the house. Even though they have a kitty, they keep Topo the kitty out of this room so people with allergies to cats can have a cat-free room. The breakfasts they serve are akin to a five-star restaurant and they go all out with fresh hand-pressed cider from down the road if you want, fresh fruit cups with a very large variety of fruit, fresh scones or muffins that change daily, and the main entree which is always scrumptions and fabulous. They have a little fridge area that you can put your leftovers if you have them from dinner and a microwave to heat them up. They stock the freezer with delicious Hagen Daz ice cream bars or Ben and Jerry ice cream. They are wonderful hosts, have traveled extensively, and have interesting stories. The grounds are beautiful and it is a wonderfully quiet and restful place. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. I find their decor tasteful, more of a craftsman style and feel, rather than foo-foo stuff you find at a lot of B&Bs.
My five days stay at this superb inn located on a 13 acre oasis of wooded peace was nothing short of perfect. A truly impeccable lodging and most gracious hosts. The gourmet breakfasts, different every day, would win awards in any contest. I couldn't think of anything that was not just right. It's a 5 star plus in my book! Charlie J
We recently traveled to the Redmond Washington area for business and stayed at Meritage Meadows Inn. We were delighted & pleased with all aspects of our accommodations. The grounds are picturesque, surrounded in lush forest. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. Bedding was excellant including pillows comforters & sheets. Bathrooms included heated flooring & towel racks & separate climate control in both, which we really appreciated since we stayed in early spring which is rather cold . Common areas were well thought out with plenty of comfortable reading space inside & out. The dining area is set up with separate tables and breakfast is served per guests. Every morning we had a lovely bowl with an array of fresh fruit and berries, excellant fresh ground coffee, choice of juice & although we were surprised & delighted with each meal we were served, from eggs benedict, apple & blueberry stuffed crepes, savory frittata, stuffed french toast, and lovely homemade scones & biscuits, we understand that if you have any special dietary needs your hosts Bob & Karen would attend to them. Bob Spencer is also a winemaker & he is happy to offer winetastings in the evening with a nice variety of wines. Bob & Karen are knowledable in regards to the area for directions & suggestions for dining and while helpful & attentive, they have created an environment which offers much appreciated privacy. Bob & Karen Spencer really seemed to think of everything for a delightful & comfortable stay. We highly recommend Meritage Meadows & will be re-booking soon! Oh- and let me not forget the deciding factor of our choice of Meritage Meadows- Topo the Inn cat - she pops in to check on all & make sure everything is just right-!
We rented two rooms for me and my wife and the kids. The greeting was very kind. We were even greated by Topo (the cat) The rooms are wonderful, the staff is friendly and very help. The prices are very resonable for the room and service offered. Hoping to go back soon
We stayed for just one night because we didn't want to drive home after a showing of Cavalia. Bob and Karen were wonderful hosts. Our room was immaculate, the bed was confy, the wine tasting was great, breakfast was delicious but most of all, our hosts understood when to just serve the coffee. In an absolutely unbelieveable turn of events, a friend from high school and college, whom we had lost track of, was also staying there. Bob and Karen understood that what we needed was time to talk and they kept the coffee coming - no pressure to finish up or leave. The home is lovely and they are wonderful hosts.
We stayed at Meritage Meadown Inn over Christmas this year while visiting family. Karen and Bob were delightful hosts. Our room was warm and inviting, and our breakfasts were delicious. We look forward to coming again when we can enjoy the walking trails in the woods. We loved the location - so convenient!
We had a wonderful 2 night getaway to celebrate our anniversary. Bob and Karen were wonderful hosts and great cooks for our breakfasts. The wine tasting was great and informative. Bob truly knows his wines. The location was beautiful and peaceful even though only a few minutes from Redmond Towncenter.
If you are reading this review, it means you are in doubt. I understand you perfectly, therefore, I decided to write it. We are planning to relocate to Seattle in our near future, and we needed a place to stay in order to be closer to the area we have in mind. This B&B was an excellent choice. First of all, people who run this place are true human beings , interesting and kind. They were excellent hosts and we are right to move to the area where such people exist. Rooms are nicely decorated, walls are a bit thin, just like in a house, so quietness is a key. It is a serene atmosphere with beautiful surroundings. Too bad I could not explore it, since it was cold and we were busy. Breakfast was cooked by the hosts and it was very good, especially waffles with homemade blueberry syrup. They offer wine-tasting ( they make wine by themselves!) and we were ready to buy a case of this excellent wine if it could be sold and allowed on the plane. You can drink coffee or tea anytime you want it, and you make it by yourself, which is convenient. There is no TV in the room, but I saw it as a respect to all guests rather than a minus. You did not come there to watch TV. You still can, if you are bored, since they have a special room for that with DVDs, nice armchairs, etc. Bob recommended us a good place to eat and we were very pleased with his choice. The place is called Stone House ,small restaurant and an excellent chef, really creative. The only problem during my stay was a bed in a blue room, since it was a bit small for my 6' 6" husband and me, but soft and warm anyway. Next time I will just ask for a wider bed, but for one person it is OK. So, do not think twice, trust me, I am an experience traveler, I know things!
Thanks to Bob and Karen for providing the framework for a relaxing anniversary get away! Our room was well appointed and the property had lots of little touches that makes this a nice play to stay. The heated floors in the bathrooms, the soaking tubs, wine glasses in the rooms, the alcove with comfy chairs to relax and read or play games, the media room, weight room, walking trails are just a few of the extra delights. Throw in a wine tasting with Bob, delicious breakfast, and friendly hosts and you have the Meritage Meadows. They are very knowledgable about the local area for restaraunts and wine tastings. A very enjoyable 2 days spent on Union Hill!
I recently stayed at Meritage Meadows for 3 nights in the Red Mountain room. Everything about the place was lovely...from the beautiful house, to the breathtaking location, to the delicious breakfast. The innkeepers (Bob & Karen) were so friendly and hospitable, and made sure we were well taken care of. I'd definitely love to make a return visit someday.
My husband surprised me with a getaway this past weekend and we stayed two nights at the Meritage Meadows B&B. It was a great spot for a special weekend! Bob and Karen, the Innkeepers, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, supplying us with information about the area and some fun conversation over a glass of their tasty wines. They have done a great job in turning a beautiful home into a spotlessly clean, nicely decorated, inviting B&B. The rooms are very comfortable; comfy beds, luxurious linens, and the heated tile floors and warm towels are a real treat! Breakfast was tasty and nicely served and we felt very welcomed. The grounds are beautiful, and we enjoyed the quiet of the location, while being close to the wineries and eateries of Redmond and Woodinville. Definitely a place we'd return when staying near Seattle or exploring more of the wineries in the area.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Meritage for just one night after wine tasting in Woodenville, but we will definitely be back! The house is gorgeous, tucked back in the woods away from it all. The room as perfect, spacious and comfortable, loved the heated floors in the bathroom. Bed was so comfortable we almost slept through breakfast which would have been tragic because it was so good, crepes with fresh fruit and homemade jelly, yum!
I am from the desert, so when me and my family arrived at the Inn my breath was stolen away. The surroundings are just wonderful!! We stayed two nights, but wish it was more. Mr Bob, the Innkeeper, made us AMAZING granola chocolate chip cookies to die for, and kept the jar in our room filled. The whole family was very hospitable, even though our large group was quite loud :) I really want to stay here again next time I am in the PNW. Highly recommend!
The rooms were luxurious and no comfort was overlooked in the design, including built in floor heating. We were sad to miss the afternoon wine tasting proposed by the owners, wine from their own vineyard. Their welcome was warm, friendly, and tasteful. Definitely recommend.
Had to stay in the area, and for about the same $$ as the two/three-star hotels we were able to stay at Meritage Meadows. Karen and Bob have done an amazing job of making each room very nice. The Red Mountain room with sauna and deep tub was amazing--definitely worth the trip and price. Wine sampling was great, and the breakfast would be hard to match even in the nice restaurants. You will love this place.
