The house was beautiful and the rooms were very comfortable. I wanted to bring the bed home with me. The breakfast, while not cooked to order, was bountiful and varied. It would be almost impossible to walk away with out finding several things you would love. The best part was the hostess, Brenda. She was so dynamic and welcoming. We loved this B&B and would love to return here.
A mansion with a rich history and ideal location. I had no difficulty sleeping as bed extremely comfortable. Large rooms with sofa and desk which allowed me to read without disturbing my husband. Breakfast had something for everyone regardless of "pickiness". As rates dropped October1, stay was a great value. Highly recommend. Thanks Brenda!
My wife and I stayed in the Woodland room only for a night. We really sank into the coziness of the room, though. We loved the tree lined streets and the nearby shops in Ballard. We liked the house so much with its dark wood wainscoting and ceiling beams that we tried to find a similar house for sale in the area. No such luck! We liked Shelly and Mike a lot. Shelly is a fine, cheerful hostess and darn good cooker of quiche! Glad we found 9 Cranes Inn. It's a jewel we'll certainly remember and come back to.
I've just spent a week at Linda's and it was exceptional. Linda treats visitors like royalty and provides you with just about everything you may need. The location is quiet and centrally located which makes it easy for day excursions. With all the comforts of home (and then some), I highly recommend Linda's by the Lake B&B.
Stayed one night in the Garden View room. This is a large, modern fully-equipped suite, tastefully decorated and purpose-built. Guests enjoy an exceptionally clean, private space. Includes full kitchen, private laundry facilities, modern furnishings. Our host welcomed us with a drink and snacks on the patio, with its beautiful water view. A delicious breakfast was served in the dining room. It is obvious Teri and Brian enjoy hosting their guests and have spared no expense in comfort and amenities. A great location to explore Seattle and surrounding area. Highly recommended.
This home has beautiful décor and artwork with a swimming pool for warm weather. The host knows all about Seattle and makes guests feel welcome. The neighborhood is walkable, filled with restaurants and fun to explore. Volunteer Park is a gem not to be missed! Public transportation is excellent and parking limited, so a car is not necessary for sightseeing in Seattle.
My husband and I recently stayed at 9 Cranes Inn and absolutely fell in love with this Bed and Breakfast. From our first step inside the front door I knew this place was going to be wonderful. Our room was beautiful and the bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Shelley and her staff were so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was so yummy!
We recently stayed one night here for our anniversary. We live in Tacoma, and wanted to get out of the city and away from our kids for a night but not have to travel too far. This place was perfect!! Jackie and Tom were great hosts, and the breakfast was simple, yet filling and delicious!! We planned on going kayaking in the morning with the free kayaks they have on-site, but forgot to check the tides beforehand. We ended up going and walking downtown Poulsbo instead and had a marvelous time! We plan on staying here again in the future and would recommend it to anyone!
This property is a very nice surprise in a neighborhood in transition. It is extremely well maintained by its owners who are most friendly and intent on your enjoyment of the stay. Our room rating is that the Western Room is small without space for a chair. Other than that the owners have done a very good job with it. The property is quiet and it is easy to reach downtown. Parking is on the street with no through traffic. The property is furnished with all the amenities one would like. Next stay would be in one of the other rooms with the New Orleans being the largest and having the view.
This was a wonderful haven in a beautifully restored mansion. Glen and Brenda were very attentive to our needs. Restaurants were only a block away and on our last morning Brenda packed an outstanding breakfast to go as we left early to catch the clipper.
Soundview Cottage B&B was a beautiful place we stayed at on our honeymoon in the Seattle area. The view was fantastic and so peaceful and relaxing. The home is furnished with everything you may need. I loved that the refrigerator was stocked well with breakfast foods. We had a superb breakfast that first morning. The hot tub on the patio was the best part. Although we were there in February, it didn't stop us from using it. Can't wait to return, hopefully in the warmer weather so I can enjoy Annie's flowers and maybe do some whale watching. We do not hesitate to recommend this place. Annie is a gracious host and lives only down the driveway so she is accessible if you need anything. Thank you Annie for having such a beautiful piece of heaven for others to enjoy! Jaime & Martha
This is one of the best B&B's I have ever been to. Linda personally shows you all around and assures you that everything you could ever want at a B&B is there. It's stocked with plenty of snacks, food, even local made jams. There is a slightly nautical theme to the room which is very nice. The jacuzzi tub works very well, and can fit too (as long as you're close). The raised tub and "counter" around it look amazing. There is a great view of a very gorgeous lake. It has a very homey, cabin feel to it. It's not a luxury place, which makes it better to me.
what a beautiful, refreshing, relaxing place! Just what we needed for our 37th wedding anniversary. we loved sitting on the patio, by the potted beautiful flowers, watching the beach and mountain. The Suite was like a home, tastefully and beautifully decorated. Very clean and tidy, also very comfortable. there were special touches, like flowers in beautiful vases, etc.. Penny treated us like her very personal guests. Her kindness and thoughtfulness stood out to us. she went out of her way to make our stay memorable. the breakfasts she provided were in abundance and delicious.. we thank God for this provision. we hope we can stay at The Cottage next time! Thank you Doug and Penny!
It's stunning to realize that this architectural gem was once a private residence. All of our hosts, including the owner, Ana, were very cordial and excited to share information about the physical details and history of the Mansion. There are several comfortable common rooms downstairs, oozing with vintage charm. The guest rooms are all bright and roomy with views to the Capitol Hill area and beyond (we could see Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains beyond from our bedroom in the aptly-named Elliott Bay Suite). There are shops and restaurants within easy walking distance and the #10 bus (one block away) will take you on a short ride to the heart of downtown Seattle and Pike's Place Market. Overall, this is THE place to stay when visiting Seattle!
The perfect B&B with the perfect location! Enjoyed the garden views and even more so the water views. Enjoyed coffee at the table placed in front of the windows overlooking the bay - peaceful, watched the mist rise from the trees and boats quietly sailing. Will recommend this to our friends as a "must" when they travel to the Seattle area. Our hosts were warm, friendly and extremely hospitable. Cleaned to perfections and beautifully decorated B & B.
WOW, what an awesome gift to me from my son for my Birthday! This was my first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and I thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Honestly it felt like home and everything was just perfect!! Upon arrival to departure -- there was such a warm welcome from Randal and Korby, which made my stay over and above what I expected. Thanks Randal and Korby for such a great blissful experience and for making my birthday weekend that much special!!!! I will be back!!
The hosts are friendly, accommodating and very helpful. Our room was big with a comfy bed and and an extra room for a third person. They are located one block from the bus and getting to downtown was easy. Continental breakfast is actually big and will keep you going all morning. All that and the house is gorgeous, too.
The 11th Avenue Inn is a charming B&B in an excellent location. The inn is spotlessly clean, our room was comfortable, and the breakfasts were outstanding. We would stay there again if we return to Seattle.
Outstanding location, outstanding room, service, and breakfasts. My wife and I (over 60) stayed 3 nights and came to like the place more and more each day. Rooms are upstairs overlooking the water--50 feet away. Quiet ....easy to read..on the deck or in the room. Jackie was bright and enjoyable to be around. We rate it as good as any B+B we have ever stayed at.
I was fortunate enough to be able to get a single night stay at this fabulous B&B. There is nothing negative to speak of. The owner is very accommodating and extremely pleasant. The house and grounds are beautiful! I no longer have any desire to stay at one of the overrated/over priced big name hotels in downtown.
Perfect ending to a two week vacation. Spent three nights in Figarro room. Could have spent more! Not at all sleepless in Seattle. LOVED privacy of porch off bedroom and huge bathroom after cramped shower and bath on cruise. Tina was great as well as other guests we met over delicious breakfast. Staying in was soooo relaxing!! Hard to go sight seeing.
