Relaxing and Peaceful

5 on July 25, 2016

On previous visits to the Seattle area, we stayed at the Willows Lodge in Woodinville or hotels in Seattle. that was a great place but it has priced itself out of our range recently. Meritage Meadows was a perfect alternative and will be our choice for accommodations in the future. The setting is serene, with deer and bunnies on the lower lawn and a relaxing gazebo where we sampled wines from Cinq (the innkeeper's winery). The breakfasts were extraordinary and so far superior to the breakfasts we had at Willows Lodge (or any other B & B we have stayed at); the recipes are available online. The innkeepers were a wealth of knowledge on the area and had great suggestions for places to visit and restaurants to try. We just can't say enough good things about Meritage Meadows.


Excellent

My in-laws from France stayed at Meritage Meadows Inn. We were able to experience the wonders of this property as we returned on a daily basis to pick them up. Bob invited us to enjoy the gardens and house as well. We were very lucky because Bob speaks excellent French. He made us all feel at home. He is so kind, knowledgeable, and the perfect host for a bed and breakfast. He makes his own professional maps and is a great guide in letting you know what places to visit in the area. It's close to Seattle, but such a tranquil place to relax in. The house is big and beatiful with a huge deck. Bob even gave us our own private wine tasting of the deliciously delicate wines he creates on the property under the label of cinq cellars. The reisling was just up my alley because it was dry and not sweet like your typical reisling. The rose had it's own unique flavor in which no other rose tastes like it. My husband loved "the storm" red. The gardens are beautiful and filled with lots of cute animals. We will definitely be staying here on our next trip to Redmond Washington.

Innkeeper Response
It was so lovely to get the opportunity to speak French and share our wines with fun guess. We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us.


Fantastic stay

Bob and Karen are wonderful innkeepers. They are both so personable. We had good and helpful discussions every morning over breakfast and any other time we wanted advice about the area. The breakfasts are amazing - delicious and different every day! We will stay here again for sure when we return to visit our kids and grandkids in the area!


Great Retreat

A really great place for a calm and luxurious stay in greater Seattle area. One of the best B&Bs I ever have stayed in. Don't miss Bob and Karen's perfect breakfast and the wines Bob is producing by himself.


A British View

5 on November 29, 2015

My wife and I had an enjoyable 10 night stay at Meritage Meadows on a brief visit from the UK to see our daughter and family just round the corner in Hunters Glen. The Inn is extremely comfortable and clean and Bob and Karen most welcoming yet unobtrusive hosts with whom we had several very interesting and informative talks and discussions. The facilities are excellent including a library, a TV room, non-stop coffee and a refrigerator with icecream and soft drinks also available 24 hours a day. There was also an excellent library and sitting room and as Karen and Bob live in a flat separate from the Inn the feeling is almost of being in your own home. The breakfast was very individual and excellent and the icing on the cake was the complementary tasting of wines from the Inn's own winery....Cinq wines. They were delicious. We shall certainly be back.


Excellent "retreat "

Warm reception, beautiful inn, noticeable attention to detail. The bed was extremely comfortable and I didn't want to get out. The bathroom was impressive (how often do you find a towel warmer in an inn)! I loved being able to grab a snack (homemade cookies and a cup of tea) before bed. It is awesome that they have a refrigerator for guest to grab a drink or ice cream and popcorn. The breakfast was almost indescribable it was so good. Their version of eggs Benedicts was delicious- their own wine sauce was the perfect topping. Every food item was homemade with love. The hosts are very hospitable and they know how to let the guest enjoy their stay. BEAUTIFUL grounds and quite surroundings; very peaceful.

Innkeeper Response
We really enjoy watching our guests relax and re-create when they visit Meritage Meadows. Thanks for your nice comments about the amenities. Karen and I traveled widely in our careers and we have tried to take the best ideas we saw and include them here in our own offerings.


Beautiful B&B with great hosts

5 on October 09, 2015

My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Meritage Meadows. Bob & Karen are warm, welcoming hosts. They are also owners of a winery and Bob treated us to a tasting of his wonderful wines on our first night. We were surprised at how delicious they are. They also cook a delicious breakfast at your chosen time (within reason) and are very accommodating to special dietary needs. The Inn is located on beautiful, well maintained grounds and surrounded by beautiful tall red cedar and fir. The rooms are lovely and we had the pleasure of staying in the room with its own Japanese soaking tub and private sauna. We felt very welcome and comfortable sipping wine on the deck, eating in the dining room, and reading in the gazebo. A pleasant surprise was the lovely town of Redmond with its great selection of restaurants. It only took us a half hour to get into Seattle from the Inn. We will go back without the slightest hesitation if our travels take us back that way again.


Comfortable home away from home

Meritage Meadows is a jewel of a B&B. Comfortable, homey, quiet, with attention to details such as plenty of pillows and blankets, heated bathroom floors, excellent breakfasts, fresh baked cookies, and snacks and coffee and tea available. The grounds are beautiful, well managed but just a bit wild as well. Bob and Karen easily managed my dietary needs, and post recipes on their website. I plan to try out a couple of the recipes soon. If we return to Redmond WA area, we hope to stay again at Meritage Meadows Inn.


Little Gem!

Fantastic spot, beautiful grounds and gardens, charming house. Spotless rooms and bathrooms, great amenities and lovely hosts. Do not miss out on the CINQ wine tasting with Bob and his great stories! Most highly recommended find and will come back myself if ever in the area again. Far better than staying in Seattle! Breakfast was delicious too.
