Great, but not for awkward newlyweds

3.4 on July 18, 2014

This was the second stop for my husband and me during our honeymoon. As my sister had booked a place for us for two nights, we went in as awkward newlyweds not quite knowing what to expect. We stayed in a lower level bedroom with a full bed. These small rooms do not come with breakfast nor a private bathroom. The atmosphere of the place, though charming and cute, reminded me more of a family reunion extravaganza rather than a romantic getaway. Had I personally booked the place, I would have chosen a higher level, more spacious room with a private bath and full breakfast, and um...thicker walls. When we met the innkeeper, in talking to her, I am sure she might have accommodated us and worked with us had we not have been so... embarrassed to express concern. As newlyweds, we did spend more time in the room than probably a solo traveler or a family would spend and for the most part we were comfortable. It was very clean, after our first night our sheets were changed, the bed was okay (if a bit small for 6 foot tall hubby), robes were provided, the bathrooms were very clean, and the wifi was fine. The walls are thin and the rooms hot (July) like an old home, but they do provide fans at our convenience. If I had not been on my honeymoon I don't think I would have minded hearing the conversations in the next room over (maybe we would have heard a short story by my hilarious uncle) because the price I'm sure is great for friends or families staying together for a weekend trip to Seattle who want a little more than a hotel chain. Overall, as a poor newly married couple (emphasis: poor), we will probably not return too soon -- but we recommend the place to other families who are looking for something different than a Best Western for their buck.


A Beautiful Surprise! The Rooms Are Completely Different, And Actually Much Nicer Than What The Photos Show!

My partner and I stayed here twice, the second time came after staying the first time and seeing that they had completely renovated the rooms- quite beautifully too! The rooms are clean, comfortable, and classically styled; again, different furnishings and look than what is reflected in the photos! The breakfasts were fantastic, and our hostesses went above and beyond. Great accommodations in such a great location!


Extremely helpful!

Called about a potential reservation and none were available but she gave me very good suggestions of other options. Very much appreciated!


Home Away from Home

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here. Rooms are comfy with great views of Seattle. Will use often as we come 2x a year to see our grandkids.


Nice hospitality

Seleima was very nice and friendly. It'd have been better if we chose a room with a bathroom, though.


Stay Here!

This was our first time staying in a B&B and it exceeded our expectations in every way. The staff was amazing. So welcoming it felt like you were staying with family. It was close to restaurants, coffee houses, and pubs. We walked to the fish market in the morning and it was a great way to see Seattle. The staff and other tenants make great suggestion of must sees in Seattle and not one of those experiences let us down. We were passing through Seattle to visit San Francisco and Seattle ended up being one of our favourite parts of the trip!


Definitely enjoyed the stay:)

Very clean, and cozy to stay at. Shannon, the owner, and Seleima, the innkeeper are very friendly. We had a wonderful stay at the accomodation. The price was fantastic!


Loved hanging around this hospitable and comfortable home

5 on September 09, 2011

Although we traveled from NY to bond with our two-year old granddaughter and her parents who live around the corner, we thoroughly enjoyed our down time at this cozy home away from home. When we weren't meeting family or friends, we relaxed in lounge chairs on the lovely front porch with tea or wine, and tourist information books and flyers found in the kitchen and living room. It was easy to walk to restaurants, and Volunteer Park's Conservatory, Asian Art Museum, and Water Tower with views of mountains in all three of Washington's National Parks. Nearby bus stops made it easy to visit downtown tourist areas and reach the LINK train to the airport. My favorite perks were the pot of early morning coffee in the living room (ready with the push of a button) and fast internet. The delicious breakfast was served between 7-9 AM by our cordial host, Susan. Susan, and Shannon, the proprietor were gracious and helpful, and even had our room ready before check-in. Our quiet, first-floor room had a really comfortable bed, windows that opened easily for fresh air, large desk area, and great shower in the claw-foot tub. We will return to this special place whenever we are in Seattle.


Overall very nice stay.

The room was very comfortable and very clean. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. Location was good and is near public transport and cafes, food and entertainment. However if intend to sleep later than about 700am this is not the place for you as the owners have a small child who was up, running and very vocal in the early mornings.

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate all feedback and use reviews to help us improve the experiences of our guests. Although we do have a son who is two years old, he does not live at the B&B. We do know it is impossible to keep a small child quiet when guests are sleeping, and keep guests quiet at night when he is sleeping. Because we take the peace and quiet of our guests seriously, we live off-site and leave the house in the hands of our overnight Innkeeper. I arrive in the mornings to prepare breakfasts and leave our son with our Nanny. I cannot argue that this guest's sleep was not interrupted by another guest's child. We do allow people of all ages to stay at our B&B and this occasionally means that parents have a little one they cannot keep quiet in the morning. We would like to emphasize that this is not the norm here. As far as our son Zachary goes, he does occasionally visit in the late mornings/afternoons after the breakfast service concludes if our nanny or my husband brings him by. We hope that guests can embrace the fact that we have a child and not feel their experience at our B&B is ruined by a child's presence.


Always a great stay!!
