We spent 6 nights here last month and couldn't be more pleased with our choice. The innkeeper was super friendly and spent time with all her guests, some of whom were repeat visitors. There was a feeling around the breakfast table that we were all friends, a nice comfortable experience. The breakfasts were superb, the best I have ever been served in a bed and breakfast. The room was very comfortable with thoughtful details throughout. We will be returning to Seattle and will most definitely be staying here in the future.

9 Cranes Inn superbly exceeded all my expectations. Despite having read all the wonderful reviews beforehand, checking out the website, nothing prepared me for the wonderful experience of staying in such a lovely place. It seemed like being home each time! The experience began even before I arrived. Communication was seamless and easy, and Shelley, the owner, the innkeeper, made sure every need was known so that she may prepare. From the arrival time, to food aversions, and so on. Detailed instructions were provided that allowed for a rather seamless stay. Breakfast was included and was a delightful surprise each morning. Needing to leave early for a class, Shelley made sure breakfast was ready for us earlier than the usual time, and when I needed to check-out very early in the morning, she had ready a take-away bag of breakfast which I really appreciated. Place was absolutely clean, cozy, comfortable. All amenities were of quality... sheets, towels, robes. I was glad to find a hairdryer, fluffy towels, toiletries. Snacks were freely available 24/7, as were coffee, tea, & soda. I loved my room which was on the topmost level. Skylight was something new & which I loved. Bathroom was spacious and provided not only two sinks (which is always nice!), but also a jet tub apart from the shower. Lovely, too, was a "guest lounge" on the second floor, with a cozy reading nook. She also had lists of restaurants, food deliveries, menus, etc. We had keys to our room and the front door which made it seem even more like going back home at the end of the day. I have so much more to say, but suffice to know that every little detail you hope for and expect in accommodations when you travel? Shelley and 9 Cranes Inn has anticipated and prepared for, and beyond. It is an experience everyone should get to try at least once! I am so looking forward to my next visit; shall definitely stay at 9 Cranes Inn again!

We visited for our anniversary and had an amazing stay. We loved the room which was bright and clean. And the food was wonderful. I was a little nervous and it blew away my expectations. Great place and we highly recommend it!

This was our first B&B experience so we had no comparison but the women at least are hooked on B&B's now. The home is beautiful, the rooms are larger than they appear in the pictures. Shelley was more than accommodating, she was helpful and friendly. We had to modify our reservation a couple of times and she was very gracious about it. She responded quickly to our e-mails. We had the Ballard View room and woke to a lovely Olympic mountain view on our last morning. The place was super clean. Our bathroom was spectacular, we even used the jacuzzi (with a sunset view). The food was quite gourmet and she used local, fresh and organic ingredients. Our husbands were a little less enthusiastic about the food - they are not gourmands - but if you appreciate something more special than bacon and fried eggs, this is the place. The scrambled eggs with smoked salmon in puff pastry was extra special.

9 Cranes Inn Salmon Scramble
Wild smoked salmon, cream cheese, spinach, and tarragon combine in a pretty scramble that nests in a homemade puff pastry shell. A side of roasted tomatoes, or maybe rosemary potatoes accompany the dish. This, after a first course that is fresh fruit-based. Juice, coffee, tea are also served.
