A Wonderful 1st!

As this was my first BnB experience, I relied upon my friends comparison. She said over and over again how well I'd done in choosing. She also said that it is the best Bed and Breakfast she had the pleasure of going to, and that I would be hard pressed to find better! I wholeheartedly believe her!! Tom and Linda were exceptional in welcoming, and making us feel like we "belonged". Thank you for that!

The big 3-0

Linda and Tom went above and beyond any expectation I may have had, to make special my daughters late night arrival from NYC on her 30th birthday! They allowed me to decorate, but when we arrived from Sea Tac they improved upon my decor and added an amazing cake! Breakfast was not your normal B&B quick meal. This was a gourmet delight, beautifully prepared and happily consumed. Durn good for a "regular" house in a residential neighborhood on a busy road near a major airport, The Guest House is one of the best. Comfy linens. Personalized service. Excellent food. Nice people. Good hot tub. What else could there be? Thank you

Come Experience Seattle

The Guest House Bed and Breakfast provides a delightful experience.. The owners/hosts are the greatest. They are very knowledgeable and prepare an excellent breakfast.

November 2013 Overnight Stay

Linda and Tom graciously allowed me to stay at their B&B while I was overseeing some night construction work in Burien. Linda made me a great breakfast when I arrived after my night shift, and I was very comfortable sleeping in a quiet bedroom with a great bed. I had a very good stay, and appreciated Linda's and Tom's hospitality. I would highly recommend their B&B as a very comfortable alternative to an airport-area hotel.

Oasis in Seattle!

We stayed here while traveling and shopping with another couple. We found Linda and Tom very knowledgeable about the area, as well as wonderful hosts. They recommended great places to eat, when we were not enjoying the delicious breakfasts they made. Breakfast was always beautifully prepared and tasty. I must add my husband used to cook professionally and commented numerous times on how excellent the breakfast and evening treats were! It was a delight to come home to this beautiful B & B and relax in the back yard. The back yard is an oasis in a quiet and safe neighborhood in Seattle. We had a room on the front of the house, but did not find road noise to be any issue, as I am a light sleeper and did not wake once. I must add the couple we travelled with found the bedrooms as comfortable as we did. They liked the place as must as we did. I would highly recommend checking this lovely little gem out. I am sure you will not regret it. We hope to go again this year! Thank you Linda and Tom for making such a lovely space for us to visit and rest. Sharon

So much more than a B&B. It's a home away from home.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and absolutely loved everything about our stay. Our hosts, Tom & Linda, were such a joy to just sit and chat with. We felt like we made new friends and will definately try to stay here again when we are in the area. Their team work in the kitchen to provide us a breakfast fit for a King and Queen was a joy to watch and very yummy. Linda gave us the recipe for her delicious Dutch Babies and I've already made them for our granddaughters. Score one for Grandma! Thanks Linda. Our breakfast meals were so big & wonderful they lasted us through lunch!! Linda took great care to check our likes, dislikes, allergies, requests, etc. Our bed was extremely comfortable with crisp ironed sheets, bathrobes in the closet, chocolates for a treat and so much more. We never used the second bedroom but it too was gorgeous. The bathroom had everything we needed and was immaculately cleaned every day. The livingroom with it's TV, stereo, DVD, everything to make you feel at home. They even placed a basket of umbrellas next to the front door in case we needed one. Which of course we did in beautiful Seattle :) Linda was very helpful in leading us to parking locations, must see attractions or anything else we might need. Mike & I will be visiting our new friends again for sure. As my title states, Linda and Tom have made this so much more than just a Bed & Breakfast. They made sure we felt at home. We thank you so much for making our short stay so great. I even think Tom gave my husband an idea for a fun part time job!!! Thanks Tom :) We will come visit again soon, Robbi & Mike

Next Time in Seattle We Know Exactly Where to Stay!!

5 on September 04, 2011

We are a family of two adults and one child. We stayed at the Guest House bed and breakfast ( in Burien (south Seattle) for five nights prior to an Alaska cruise this past August and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Minutes from the airport and the light rail train station by car, taxi or bus, a twenty to thirty minute train ride into downtown Seattle, Guest House B and B is an ideal place for visitors to the Seattle-Tacoma area to enjoy some r. and r. after a day of touring, exploring or doing whatever it is you have come to Seattle to do. Lovingly tended gardens and a carefully maintained hot tub and deck provide a magically comforting and calming balm to weary muscles, feet and spirits. Guest House B and B provides a quiet, private, self contained suite with two bedrooms, each with its own beautifully coordinated colours, character and queen sized bed, a full bathroom, use of a fridge, microwave and coffee maker, a comfy sitting room with TV, VCR, radio and a collection of books and games- completely separate from the living space of hosts, Tom and Linda Dike. We wakened every morning to the earthy, seductive aroma of freshly ground coffee and a gourmet breakfast where a simple white plate becomes the canvass for an exquisitely presented piece of art; a symphony of colour and flavour. Attention to detail begins with starched and ironed bed sheets and immaculately clean living space and continues throughout your stay with fresh towels and bathrobes for the hot tub and cookies or cake left each evening for guests to enjoy. Tom and Linda are very respectful of the privacy of guests yet incredibly helpful, providing much information about sites and transportation in the Seattle area prior to and during your stay. The next time we go to Seattle, we know exactly where we will stay.

wonderful ending to fantastic trip

Linda and Tom are fantastic innkeepers.The house is immaculate and very well kept. The breakfasts are fantastic and she goes out of her way to give you little touches like flowers on your plate. The yard is manicured perfectly and the flowers are so beautiful, the pix on internet do not do the gardens justice. It was a perfect and relaxing ending to our 2 week washington vacation and 7 minutes to airport. It was a great value to have two bedrooms a bathroom and living room to yourself,and a whole yard including a hot tub.
