Unfortunately we didnt get to stay here. My husband and I had reservations but our plans changed last minute. David was extremely kind, responsive and understanding. He even sent an email of other options. Thank you David

A charming B&B in an eclectic neighborhood with lush gardens. Superior, friendly service with delicious breakfasts and hospitable amenities above & beyond.

Highly Recommended!!

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast in a quiet neighborhood. It is a little bit of a walk to the downtown (uphill on the way back), but there is bus stop right across the street if you want to take public transportation. David was very welcoming and accommodating. He provides a great deal of information on places to see and restaurants locally. Everything is very clean and well kept. Breakfast was amazing. I would go back here in a heart beat. Stay here, you won’t regret it!

11th Avenue Inn is Outstanding

Dave (the owner) and his staff welcome their guests with open arms. The inn is very clean and comfortable. Its location is great -- you are close to many shops & restaurants -- you must try it!

A very comfortable place to rest

We will stay here again. In over 20 years, this is the first B & B that we have stayed at where the Inn keeper, David, meet us outside by our car! What a wonderful greeting! He was very helpful. The staff were also very pleasant. We had a wonderful breakfast with GREAT coffee. Our room was very quiet and the bed was comfortable. My husband to walk to work and I walked the neighborhood. Christine, who made a tasty omelet, suggested a walking direction. I felt very comfortable walking around Volunteer Park and the surrounding neighborhoods. David didn't mind that after leaving our room for our stay, that I could sit in their front room to read. It was all so very relaxing. Having a place to park the car off of the street is very nice. A simple, comfortable place to stay is what you will get. David and the staff make you feel like you are at home. They had bowls of snacks downstairs- just nice little touches.

Terrific City Location

The 11th Avenue Inn is a charming, clean home -- formerly a pastor's family residence, not far from the Seattle harbor. Big plusses are friendly, responsive host and staff, delicious food, off-street parking, lovely neighborhood. Walk to comfy restaurants or Pike's Market. A keeper.

Calming, wonderful place to stay.

4.8 on November 06, 2011

Very charming b&b, with wonderful woodwork, excellent staff, delightful food, and an inn keeper who is happy to giving you directions or look up something of interest to make your stay more enjoyable. All of the rooms I saw had a private shower, wardrobe, and charm. Almost in the heart of Seattle, the Space Needle and down town are just blocks away, we walked to just about everywhere. I would definetely stay there again. Leslie and Joe of North Pole

Supreme comfort & relaxation!

Wholeheartedly Recommend

I found 11th Ave Inn to be delinghtful, comfortable. It's on a quiet street, in a great neighborhood, very close to Broadway district, 15th Ave area, and Volunteer Park. There is a small off-street lot for about 6 cars. Also, quite close to a couple bus stops. Small thoughtful touches: candy dishes full of chocolates/nuts, selection of fresh fruit, fresh flowers, carafe of water in the bedroom, a full umbrella stand, a collection of teas and a carafe of hot water in dining room. David provides maps, as well as a list of what the neighborhood offers (restaurants, etc). I loved the Garnet room. It is spacious and beautifully furnished. There is a desk and chair, easy chair, chest of drawers, big beautiful armoire, and wooden window seat, which looks out upon the front garden and sidewalk. The jet tub was quite welcome after a long day of walking and sightseeing. The skylight windows let in a lot of light, but there are shades that can be closed. The bed was exquisitely comfortable, and there were an extra blanket and a down throw available. Also, hairdryer is provided. I didn't have any problems with noise, and never even heard the other guests. The staircase to 3rd floor is narrow, steep, and perfectly charming. It wasn’t a problem for me. The den has myriad brochures on tourist activities, many books on Seattle, and board games. The front room has a large selection of DVDs for your bedroom's DVD player and an assortment of chaises and couches for comfortable lounging. The breakfasts were marvelous. They included: a wonderful oatmeal nut pancake, an omelet filled with spinach, goat cheese, topped with pesto, a breakfast burrito filled with sausage, mushrooms, green onions, served with avocado, and the most delicious Cinnamon Orange French Toast, served with sausage. There was an assortment of yogurts and granola. The cooks were friendly, prompt, and accommodating. I will definitely book my room at the 11th Ave Inn on return trips.
