The pictures don't do it justice. Beatifully appointed and romantic. Rooms and bathrooms spacious clean and the sheets were exceptional. Could here folks walking outside the room but not through walls. This was not too common. Will stay again with girlfriend

Shafer-Ballie is a beautiful mansion in the Capital Hill district of Seattle. We loved our room and Glenn and Brenda (innkeepers) were very helpful. The breakfast was amazing!

We had a very pleasant stay. We stayed in the largest suite in the mansion and it was quite large. Very unique shower and bathtub. The breakfasts could have been varied alittle more. Same egg dish each morning. Also they seemed to cater to the other group that was staying there at the same time. But all in all it was a nice experience.
