What a gem of a place! The rooms are lovely and comfortable in this stately home and the service is classy Southern hospitality. Brenda - tried the cobbler and the french toast recipes - they are outstanding! Fantastic breakfasts and the atmosphere is turn of the century charm and luxury.
I surprised my partner for his birthday and booked the 'Marriage of Figaro' room at the Mozart Guest House. We were greeted warmly by Tina, and felt comfortable right away. Our room was GORGEOUS and clean and and delight to be in. Tina was accommodating in letting us have a later breakfast and later checkout time. The breakfast was delicious; homemade croissants, yogurt & granola, orange juice, fruit, coffee, eggs and sausages. We will definitely visit again.
My girlfriend and I spent an evening in the Lakeside bedroom. John & Beth were great hosts. The location is great; about 10-15 minute Uber ride to the wineries. The lakeside room is private and very comfortable. The continental breakfast was great and the hot tub was an added bonus. We'll definitely come back. My advice is bring a bottle with you when you check in, we thought we'd just drop our stuff off and head out to the wineries but the property is really great and you'll want to hang out for a bit if it's a nice day.
Room was extremely quiet. We could hear nothing from the other rooms. One major drawback with our 2 night stay was the inability of the staff to fix our television. The was one of the advertised perks that we were not able to ulilize.
We stayed in the master suite. Room was amazing. The antique spa shower was really cool. Breakfast was nice and our host, Brenda, made the whole experience that much better. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Seattle now!
We were expected and warmly greeted upon arrival. The host was wonderful providing historic insight into the mansion and anticipating our needs with various amenities throughout the Mansion(water, small treats, board games in the study, etc). Our room was beautiful and the bed provided excellent sleep. The parking was a concern before arriving, but as is mentioned on the website parking is ample, even with a full mansion. Volunteer park is a block to the north which provides recreation for all ages. We were recommended one of the best seafood restaurants I have ever eaten at, The Coastal Kitchen, a short walk from the mansion. Nothing was lacking, and so much to be enjoyed, a standard of excellence for bed and breakfasts.
We had a wonderful time. The room was fantastic. Everything was clean, comfortable and made you feel at home. The breakfast and snacks were superb. The owners were so friendly and accommodating. And of course Mojo and Monte were an added treat. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to Seattle. Myron and Gretchen Haas, Pottsville Pa.
My daughter and I had a short amount of time to travel to Seattle to tour a college. We arrived late evening from the airport and were graciously greeted by Tia and shown to our gorgeous spacious room. We loved the cozy yet elegant décor, the amazing king size bed, the large bathroom with tub and amazing shower. The best surprise was a spacious balcony to step out to enjoy the view. Seattle's Capital Hill is a fabulous neighborhood to explore and The Mozart Guest House is the perfect landing. Hint: Don't explore without eating the most delicious breakfast ever!
We decided to get away for our anniversary gift to ourselves, criteria being 1)local 2) quiet 3) private 4)Mountain and water views 5)not a typical B&B or hotel. Three Tree Point fit the bill perfectly. Although we live in King county after a long hectic work week we just wanted to drive a few miles yet feel like we had gone far away. Having a nice sized kitchenette with all amenities meant we could slouch around without having to go out if we didn't want to made everything so convenient. The cottage is cozy and easy to sink into. I would recommend to out of towners or locals.
The treehouse is absolutely adorable, and John and Beth were the perfect hosts. My wife and I wanted a "mini-vacation" to escape the Seattle hubbub, and the treehouse was perfect. In the evening, hot tub and twinkle lights, followed by a cup of tea by the fire. In the morning, a massive home-cooked breakfast left on our doorstep, followed by sunrise over the lake. It was heaven.
My mom needed a place to stay close by while visiting from out of town, but proximity wasn't the only feature of Shafer Baillie that impressed us. Anna's hospitality and the mansion's inviting decor were two components of the stay that pushed the experience into an "outstanding" category. Thank you for a memorable visit. I'll be sending more guests there in the future!
Very clean and comfortable with attention to details. Lots of amenities. To name a few: Keurig coffee machines in the rooms, snacks and bottled beverages in the hallway, heated floors and towel racks in bathrooms, baked goods downstairs to be enjoyed at any time, memory foam mattresses, high thread-count sheets. Innkeepers and there dogs were charming. Breakfasts were fabulous. We will definitely return.
We had a large party at Shining star for the New years holiday, we had our entire family 4 generations come out. We were greeted by Jasmine who was a kind gal who showed us around, she made us comfortable and was nearby in case we needed anything. This place was gorgeous! Our rooms were immaculate, and we really liked that the owners provided us with lots of little sweets and drinks complimentary in the room. The fire was warm and we loved the trails, it was rainy and cold but we still managed to get out and take a walk. We felt the hosts to be very capable and kind, they went out of their way to help us with Ski rentals and introduced us to the horses, they weren't doing trail rides at the time because of weather but it was nice to meet them. The horses were really nice and well taken care of. They enjoyed the carrots we were given to feed them. It is a unique place to stay because they rescue horses and dogs it is nice to know our money is going to help the animals, we enjoyed our time there and will definitely be back. We would have liked only if it was raining, but that is something only nature can provide.
Location was great, room was great, atmosphere, service and food was everything you could ever want in a B & B. The experience was the best of all the places we have stayed all put together in one. We felt like we were part of the family. We got excellent advice on places to eat, that were in walking distance, and places to visit. We would stay again in a heartbeat.
My husband and I keep dreaming about our short stay at Greenlake, wishing we could have stayed longer. We booked a last minute room when the baby of a friend whose house we were staying at got sick. The owner replied to the inquiry almost immediately and offered a discounted rate. The room was ready early and check in was seamless. The accommodations were perfect-- a comfortable bed, cozy gas fireplace, relaxing jacuzzi. The guest house also had freshly baked cookies, a stocked fridge with beverages, fruit and tea and coffee around the clock. We chose from a huge library of DVDs for a little entertainment before bed and slept soundly. Thanks for a great stay.
We were celebrating our anniversary just after the new year started and wanted to try a B&B for the home feel they offer, but also wanted to be in or near the city. So, after deciding on the Mozart, we arrived to find a quaint and lovely place nestled in a fantastic north Seattle community. Victorian accents permeate the home which is a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our favorite part of the whole stay was the host, a warm and friendly woman originally from Russia, whose personality was as large as the land she is from. She seemed genuinely interested in the welfare of her guests, and made us a wonderful breakfast that included fresh flaky croissants and silk-like scrambled eggs. Yes - they were that good! Also, ensure you try her jams - you won't be disappointed. Our second favorite thing was...the BED! Absolutely comfortable with warm, soft and cloudlike bedding and the fluffiest pillows I've ever felt! We stayed in the Marriage of Figaro which comes with its own private balcony. Being winter time, we didn't make much use of the balcony, but could easily see how it might be a lovely experience in Summer. My only contention with all of the accommodations was the price. Nevertheless, we would definitely stay there again.
Wow! What a gorgeous setting me and my wife are both back packers and we really enjoyed our stay here! The expansive trails and large property was perfect for us to hike and explore, we love that we were able to bring our dog charlie! He enjpoyed the stay to Courtney our innkeeper was very sweet and made our stay really nice! We loved the breakfast and felt they gave us a large portion and enjoyed the selection of granola and cereals. We will be back
We've had the pleasure of staying with Korby & Randal at the Sleeping Bulldog Bed and Breakfast several times before and the tranquil beauty of their rooms, warm personalities and amazing breakfasts keep us coming back! For this latest trip we were in Seattle in December for a Seahawks Game and their place is centrally located to allow you to walk/take transit/take a taxi to the game (saving yourself $30!) and is an oasis to return to after enjoying the company of 69.000 other people! We loved sitting in front of the fire in the main room, surrounded by lovely holiday decorations and enjoying a bottle of wine. It also gave us the chance to chat with and get to know a few of the other guests which is always a nice bonus with a B&B. We retired to the sumptuous New Orleans suite each evening and feel blissfully asleep with the lights of Seattle twinkling outside the window and the heavenly mattress and sheets cocooning us to dreamland. Speaking of dreams, the breakfast is the stuff dreams are made of! A multi-course extravaganza of gourmet delights served by the wonderful team at Sleeping Bulldog Bed & Breakfast. We truly cannot wait to come back. Thanks again Korby and Randal for another amazing stay!
