Treated like Royalty and Family

What a gem of a place! The rooms are lovely and comfortable in this stately home and the service is classy Southern hospitality. Brenda - tried the cobbler and the french toast recipes - they are outstanding! Fantastic breakfasts and the atmosphere is turn of the century charm and luxury.


Quiet and Peaceful

4.4 on April 19, 2016

Room was extremely quiet. We could hear nothing from the other rooms. One major drawback with our 2 night stay was the inability of the staff to fix our television. The was one of the advertised perks that we were not able to ulilize.


Capitol Hill Luxury

4.6 on April 13, 2016

We stayed in the master suite. Room was amazing. The antique spa shower was really cool. Breakfast was nice and our host, Brenda, made the whole experience that much better. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Seattle now!


The Best Place To Stay On Capitol Hill!

5 on April 11, 2016

We were expected and warmly greeted upon arrival. The host was wonderful providing historic insight into the mansion and anticipating our needs with various amenities throughout the Mansion(water, small treats, board games in the study, etc). Our room was beautiful and the bed provided excellent sleep. The parking was a concern before arriving, but as is mentioned on the website parking is ample, even with a full mansion. Volunteer park is a block to the north which provides recreation for all ages. We were recommended one of the best seafood restaurants I have ever eaten at, The Coastal Kitchen, a short walk from the mansion. Nothing was lacking, and so much to be enjoyed, a standard of excellence for bed and breakfasts.
