This was our first stay here, but won't be our last. We were made to feel very welcome, like part of the family. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast options were extensive. We get to Seattle on a regular basis and will certainly try to stay here again.


Quiet, beautiful, comfy place to enjoy your time in Seattle

Brenda is very helpful. She will answer any questions you may have. The Bed & Breakfast is very beautiful in a beautiful setting. You can lose yourself just walking around the peaceful neighborhoods. The bed & breakfast is beautifully furnished. Please check out the library with the unique game boards for life, monopoly, clue etc. Very charming place to stay while in Seattle.


Lovely B & B and great location

The home is lovely, the room was restful, comfortable bed and a great location in Seattle. I will recommend the Shafer Baillie Mansion to anyone I know visiting Seattle


Lovely comfortable home in a great neighborhood!

The mansion has a unique traditional atmosphere. We stayed in the master suite which accommodated all five of us comfortably, and we had plenty of room. We enjoyed visiting with other guests at breakfast. The coffee served was some of the best we've ever had. Just up the street is Volunteer Park which has lovely views from the water tower and the Museum of Japanese Art. The area is very walkable. Just a couple of blocks away is 15th street where we found several restaurants, cafes, bars, and drugstores. This was an ideal location for a Seattle stay.


Fabulous place!

Our wonderful stay here began with a warm and friendly greeting by Brenda, who showed us around, explained what was where and made us feel "at home" here. The house is beautifully decorated in period furniture. The room we choose was very spacious and comfortable. The food options at breakfast were wonderful, and coffee, tea, and fruit are always available. We will return here when we visit Seattle.


Great place !

This is a beautiful old house and a great place to stay! Really good location and walking distance to shopping, dining and Volunteer park. Gorgeous area with beautiful old homes. Breakfast - Yum! I would definitely stay here again.


July stay at Shafer Bailey

Excellent stay, very helpful staff


stunning B&B in lovely part of Seattle

5 on July 25, 2016

The Shafer Baillie Mansion is probably one of the best B&B's you will find anywhere. A magnificent house, beautifully and meticulously renovated by the lovely owner Anna. Our room was stunning and we wished we'd had more than 2 nights to enjoy in this wonderful house and in Seattle. Brenda greeted us and we were lucky to meet both her and Anna during our stay - they were both so welcoming and helpful and nothing was any trouble. The whole place is spotlessly clean and the breakfasts are magnificent, with a plentiful supply of fresh fruits, cereals and porridge, as well as meats and cheeses. We were also welcome to help ourselves to coffee/tea and cakes during the day if we wished. Loads of rooms to relax in on the ground floor and a lovely sociable big table for breakfast where we enjoyed mingling with the other guests. We were able to walk into the city from the house or catch one of the frequent buses - everything was so easy and the residential area the house is in is lovely. If we ever return to Seattle, and we certainly hope to one day, we will most certainly return to the Shafer Baillie and it would feel like coming home. Gill


A very pleasant stay and a highly recommended experience

We were made to feel very welcome and like part of a big family. Our hosts were extremely informative about Seattle, where to go, what to see and most importantly how to get there using the very efficient Seattle integrated transport system.
