room, service, value cleanliness and dessert and breakfast served in our room all exceeded our expectations! We just wanted to get away for a while and were happy to be accommodated at Auberge de Seattle. We were also pleasantly upgraded to the Honeymoon suite! So nice!
Again we were pleasantly surprised.
Great staycation get away!

The Auberge de Seattle was a very nice retreat. The morning pastries were delicious and the orange wine was delectable!
Charming French Country Bed & Breakfast
on March 05, 2014
My husband and I just came back from an amazing two night stay at Auberge de Seattle. Breakfast croissants delivered to our room each morning were outstanding. Our cooking class was great fun learning new techniques and visiting with the other guests. The meal we cooked was excellent; along with the dinner conversations and new friends we met. The evening was very delightful!
Thank you so much for taking the time out of our busy life to write this review. We loved having you stay with us, please come back for another visit!
Great honeymoon suite on beautiful grounds
on September 06, 2013
At check-in, we had requested late check-out for noon. This was a wedding night stay and we had arrived fairly late. Breakfast was still delivered at 9am with a knock on the door that woke us. Very frustrating. The innkeeper was friendly enough but made it clear she wanted the room vacated ASAP. The room was beautiful and the food was delicious but it was not a relaxing stay by any stetch of the imagination.
If we had known that you did not want your breakfast served in your suite at 9:00 a.m., we would have gladly accommodated you. I am sorry that you did not feel rested, as we pride ourselves in providing a tranquil setting for our guests. French Country Inns are known for being quiet hidden gems where the guests achieve a sense of well being. Merci Beaucoup for sharing your experience with us. A bientot!
A wonderful change of venue + authentic French cooking
on September 03, 2013
We just returned from a lovely Labor Day weekend retreat at L'Auberge where we enjoyed Nancy's gracious hospitality, peaceful French country-like setting, well-appointed apartment unit and cooking activity one evening. For anyone looking for a taste of France away from the hectic city - this is the locale juste! Not only was the cooking activity well-orchestrated for our group of 3 couples, but we all actually created a wonderful - typically French dinner which we all then shared. The chef (Phillippe) was informative and entertaining as well. I have lived in France for many years and this evening was a special treat for me as it transported me far away from my working world - to to a relaxing and elegant bit of France.
A romantic escape

Auberge is a beautiful estate tucked away in a rural area yet close to the city. We stayed in the Chef's Apartment. It was beautifully appointed. The owner is not a overly friendly sort but is nice however, her talent in the kitchen is incomparable. We had the light supper. The quiche was to die for. The dessert was unbelievable. Our breakfast croissants were as light as air, warm and delicious. All in all this was a wonderful experience and a great way to get away close to home to celebrate our 32nd anniversary.
A delightful few days of B&B + French Cooking School experience.

My friend and I spent a fabulous few days at this inn. The accommodations were perfect and the cooking class was a lot of fun. We loved our French chef Christine, and Nancy was a delight. We hope to go back soon to share this experience with some of our friends.
Charming French B & B
on January 11, 2012
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and new years eve at the same time in the studio at L'Auberge. It was romantic and secluded. We really enjoyed the welcome dessert and wine when we arrived, as well as the homemade pastries in the morning. We will return to enjoy a cooking class in the future.
Wine Weekend Get-a-way
on June 30, 2011
My husband and I had a wine weekend planned in Woodinville and were pleased to find this sweet B&B and were happy to be able to use our gift card we had received! The location is close enough to Woodinville wineries that it makes for a perfect way to end the day!
We arrived and were greeted by the owner Nancy who showed us to our sweet room. The decor was nice and the room had everything we needed! There was a huge walk in closet that also had a roll away extra bed! There was a desk, microwave, fridge, coffee maker, silverware, dishes, and sink. The mini kitchen was stocked with a variety of dry cereals and granola, milk, jelly, butter, yogurt, and a sweet strawberry dessert awaiting us! There was a nice seating area next to the bed with two chairs and a little table. The tv and dvd were perfect viewing above the bed. The bathroom was awesome with a huge jetted tub! We enjoyed this the most of our stay as it is not often we get to use a big bath since we do not have one at home! Although we brought all the toiletries we needed it was nice to see that she offered toothbrushes and other basic necessities. Our breakfast of fresh baked bread was left at our doorstep to enjoy in the morning! The bread was delicious, heated with butter, and a side of the sweet fresh jelly! We loved the french music that was played in the morning over the surround sound speakers throughout the room! It was a perfect way to enjoy a night after our wonderful wine weekend!
Thank you for your "Sweet" review, it is much appreciated!
Not what we expected
on February 25, 2011
This B&B has changed course to offer cooking classes and the simple B&B guest might suffer for it. The large four-person soaking tub took twenty minutes to fill less than halfway before running out of hot water. Even with both of us in it, we "soaked" our legs only. The small refrigerator freezer hasn't been cleaned in so long, the accumulated ice has broken the door off. Weird collection of art, collectibles, and toys make one wonder if this is an adult romantc getaway or a child's playroom. The evening desert was a fork-bending combination of undercooked apples and over cooked crust. The morning pastries, delivered the night before outside the enterior door on the stoop, were a pastry combination of too hard or too mushy. The cereal offerings were half-filled. The cereal milk was a small pitcher, almost enough for one bowl each. Sorry to be so harsh, but we have experienced much better in much more remote places.
Oh Dear...I am so sorry to hear that you had such a terrible time...sounds like we did not do ANYTHING right.
