Perfect Stay

5 on December 15, 2014

We had the perfect stay at the Sleeping Bulldog B&B. Korby and Mojo greeted us cheerfully upon our arrival. Korby took us to our room and informed us that we'd been upgraded to the beautiful New Orleans room with a panoramic view of the city. Everything was first class, comfy bed, fireplace, jacuzzi tub, wonderful linens and everything was squeaky clean. The breakfasts were delicious and truly gourmet, Korby is an amazing chef. Randle and Korby made us feel very welcome, they helped us with bus schedules and were just fun and interesting people to visit with. We highly recommend the Sleeping Bulldog B&B and hope to stay there on our next visit to Seattle.


amazing place!

Recently spent a weekend at the Sleeping Bulldog. What a wonderful place! Korby and Randal were awesome hosts. We"ll definitely be back the next time we are in Seattle. Thank you for the amazing stay. Jim and Erin


Wish We Had More Than Five Stars!!

5 on November 01, 2014

We just finished up with a much needed mini-escape weekend to Seattle. The Sleeping Bulldog B & B was the pizzaz that made it magical! We stayed in the Santa Fe Room and felt so pampered! From the luxurious sheets, warming stone bath floor, jacuzzi tub, toiletries from New Zealand, in the room Keurig Coffeemaker (extra star for that one!) yoga mat, a fully stocked DVD/BluRay selection w/popcorn, beverages, other snacks (for the when you are in the room recouping from your day of exploring beautiful Seattle) every need has been anticipated and beautifully provided for. Korby and Randal were on their own mini-escape and so we were lucky to have Liz and Gary as our hosts. We are "breakfast foodies" from Portland and can honestly say that the breakfasts we had (and there were three of them) were the BEST EVER. They provided us with extra adventuring info and were spot on with all their help! Next time we will treat ourselves to the New Orleans Suite (we peeked in there when it was empty of course!) and it does have the view that everyone is talking about! All in all a most awesome experience! Nate & Laura


Outstanding stay at Sleeping Bulldog B&B

Really good breakfast and snacks especially the chocolate brownie.


Tasteful and Luxurious

4.4 on September 29, 2014

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.


Special Birthday Weekend!!

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!!

Outstanding B&B. The food, the rooms, the owners go all out to bring you a great stay.


Gorgeous home, no AC at night

3.4 on September 01, 2014

This home is beautiful and exquisitely appointed. The owners are charming and friendly, and Mojo the bulldog is a sweetheart. The free snacks and drinks are high quality and plentiful, and homemade baked goods were always available downstairs. We checked out a day early because our room was so hot that we couldn't sleep, even after asking for AC the second night. (It only runs during the day.) That's the reason for the one star service rating-- otherwise a lovely place. I'm sure fall, winter, and spring are perfect.


home away from home

My husband and I stayed in the Northwest suite for three nights recently. It's really a spacious one-bedroom basement apartment with a private entrance. It was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and clean, and had a full kitchen stocked with drinks and goodies. Breakfast upstairs was heavenly, and Korby and Randale were wonderful hosts who helped with restaurant suggestions and bus info. The location is close to a bus stop and the airport. We look forward to returning.


So happy to be back at the Sleeping Bulldog!

My husband and I stayed at the Sleeping Bulldog several years ago and were thrilled with the hospitality, fabulous breakfasts, charm, cleanliness, location, amenities, and wonderful friendliness of Korby and Randal. We returned for a 4 night stay at the end of July and the experience was again outstanding! We felt so welcome and beyond comfortable. What an incredible value. Reserve as early as you can!
