We were not able to eat breakfast there because of meetings scheduled each morning. It was a lovely, quiet place with great WiFi and furnishings. It was beautifully decorated for the holiday season. This is the second time we have stayed there and would return again.

We stayed in the Castle room and had a very nice experience. From the outside it looked a bit wanting in some care but the inside was very clean and friendly. Every where you looked there were treasures to see. All in all very comfortable.

Two of three (?) rooms are upstairs which may be difficult for some older people. Beds were very comfortable. Bath was a great place to relax and unwind. Breakfast was very good. Was there for a too short a time so did not get to explore parlor and grounds.

Great B&B in quiet West Settle neighborhood

5 on April 24, 2014

This is a great small B&B on quiet West Seattle street only a few blocks from bus stop and restaurants. The breakfasts were excellent cooked by owner Marcia on the weekends and her mother Marjorie during the week. The home has great sitting areas with and without TV in a lovely setting. The hosts are very friendly and and provide a great experience.

Enjoyed Chittenden House

4.8 on February 21, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed our 4 day stay at Chittenden House. Our bedroom was spacious and the queen size bed was comfortable. We shared the bathroom which did not cause any problem. The breakfast was delicious with salmon egg quiche and fruit. Our only warning is the owner does have a dog which we found fun to play with. But, if you do not like dogs then be forewarned. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and about 1/2 mile from the water and California Street's businesses. We walked to the to both locations. We used Bed and Breakfast Guild gift certificate to pay for our stay without any problems. I recommend Chittenden House and plan to stay there for future visits.
