Lovely B and B

5 on August 20, 2014

This was our second time staying at the mansion. We like the convenience of being able to park on the street and all the lovely homes surrounding it . Brenda is always accommodating and happy to see us. The breakfast is delicious with plenty of different food choices. The grounds are beautiful and the proximity to downtown make it a lovely walk for us. We will stay there again next time we are in Seattle.

Charm and location

4.4 on August 17, 2014

This B&B did not make any promises it didn't keep. The inn is gorgeous, with plenty of spaces to relax in. The innkeepers were welcoming and continually helpful. When we realized we had forgotten something and contacted them from home, they packaged and mailed it to us right away. The nearby park and gardens are a plus, and there are more than several good restaurants within easy walking distance. We would happily return.

Charming house and people

5 on August 16, 2014

Very charming mansion/home with great character. We had an excellent and peaceful stay. Breakfast was amazing and the staff was friendly and helpful. The owner was very nice and made us feel right at home. Our room was quiet and spacious. The bathroom was remodeled and nice. Plenty of areas throughout the home to explore and sip coffee that was provided. Great customer service. A+. Thanks and God bless.

Top notch select registry inn

Wonderful location with good public transit to all the key places and a great restaurant area nearby. Also great common rooms (especially the sun room). For a buffet breakfast, top notch.

Great stay at B&B

4.8 on July 25, 2014

We were in Seattle for my sister's wedding and enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was included and was a delightful surprise of deliciousness every day. The B&B was easy to walk to downtown or take public transportation.

Great B&B to stay in Seattle

Ana is a great and warm host. We would come back anytime. Neghborhood is nice. Parking is free.

Elegant B&B

4.4 on June 28, 2014

The house is huge, elegant and interesting. Searching in the library, which contains a lot of old and new books, may give you new knowledge about Seattle`s history.

Superb place to stay

I couldnt imagine staying anywhere else in Seattle. The hosts were so friendly, the rooms very large and quiet, the breakfast delightful. Capital Hill neighbourhood is a great home base to explore the wonderful cuty of Seattle

A home away from home

If we ever come back to Seattle, we will surely stay again at Shafer Baillie Mansion. Our stay was just perfect, the breakfast outstanding. Brenda and Glen made us feel at home.
