Our stay at the Shafer Baille Mansion was a wonderful experience. It's located in a quiet neighborhood next to Volunteer Park and near several restaurants and coffee shops. The innkeeper is knowledgeable about the area and Seattle in general and serves a delicious breakfast. The room we stayed in was quiet and comfortable and our stay could not have been better. We'll return!

What a beautiful house! They don't build em like this anymore. Looks as good in person as the pictures show. You will not be disappointed. They went through a first class restoration process and have binders of photos in the library off the foyer that show before and after. But enough about the house itself. In the course of our 4 night stay we met the owner Ana Lena who was very friendly and accomodating and we were tended to daily by Brenda and Glenn.....each of whom would go out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. They gladly provided advice and directions prior to our leaving for a day of adventure. Breakfast was served buffet style each morning providing a variety of options including fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, cereal, smoked salmon, prosciutto ham, hard boiled eggs, cheeses, mini cinnamon rolls, danish, english muffins, bagels, and sometimes an egg casserole. As filling as you want it to be. We stayed in the "Volunteer" room which was great with plenty of room, a nice period bath and it had a walk in closet. The bed was quite comfortable and we slept sound. For dinner each night we ate down on 15th street which was maybe a 4 block walk from the house. We found it easier to walk rather than drive and park. There are a good variety of bars and restaurants. Our favorite meal was at the Coastal Kitchen where I recommend the Jambalaya....excellent. Capitol Hill is a great neighborhood. We found it very safe. Lots of walkers, many student aged, some mothers with baby in strollers, joggers, dog walkers, you name it. Everyone very polite and helpful the few times we asked for directions. All in all a great stay.

First trip to Seattle and I could not have asked for a better place to rest my head then at Shafter Baillie. The staff were friendly, the rooms were clean, and the food was great to grab and run. I appreciate the extra things like maps and directions for local food and shops. Notes where to catch the bus, etc. They were warm friendly and definitely made the trip fabulous. I will be recommending everyone to stay there!

This was our second visit to the mansion. I like the location, so near to Volunteer Park. Shops, restaurants and coffee bars are within walking distance. One bus to downtown Seattle. The caretakers are particularly helpful with directions and suggestions for daily fun things to do in Seattle. We'll stay again when in Seattle.
