Our family of 4 (parents and 2 teens) were delighted to stay 2 nights in the SE Ballroom on the 3rd floor of this beautiful old home (built in 1914). We had plenty of space in the room, extremely comfortable beds, extra toiletries (cotton balls, q-tips, lotion), and lights for each person to read at night. We started the day with a delicious and varied breakfast - lots of fresh fruit, yogurt, a hot dish, even gluten-free bread (as we mentioned our diet in our email). All the staff - Glenn, Brenda and owner Ana Lena - were very helpful with a couple of challenges we had - a sick daughter and papers we needed to print. We loved the neighborhood, especially walking to meals and stores and not worrying driving and parking! We would definitely stay here again on another visit to Seattle!

My wife and I were in town for a wedding and I happened across the website when trying to find a place to stay. Everything looked good on the outside and the questions I submitted to clarify a couple points were answered within the hour. Room was wonderful, the Innkeepers were very nice and bursting with information to let us know anything about the area as well as the Mansion. Breakfast was more than I expected and we ate a wonderful meal every morning because of it. Highly recommend staying here if you are here for a day or a week.

The Shafer Baillie mansion is a beautiful historic home located a block away from Volunteer Park in a very quiet Capital Hill neighborhood. The innkeepers are extremely welcoming and make sure all your needs are met. The house is spacious and the rooms are well-appointed. I'd certainly stay there again!

Was hesitant at first as it was continental breakfast. No worries, Brenda puts out a wonderful feast with first class cheeses, meats, lox and so on. She also had something hot and special on hand each morning as well. Very well stocked "continental breakfast". Now for the mansion itself...OUTSTANDING lovely building with all the necessary modern comforts within. Neighborhood is perfect for walks and cafes and restaurants. Close to downtown if you really want to go there as well. Will definitely return.

The mansion was beautiful and the rooms were spacious and clean. Both Glen and Brenda were welcoming hosts and were helpful with accomodations and city information. Breakfast was more than we could have expected. We felt spoiled.

Our expectations were exceeded at this historic B & B in Capitol Hill. Location and ambience are top notch but the crowning glory was the warmth and wit of housekeeper Brenda who made us feel as if we were staying at a dear friend's home. Her skills in the kitchen did not go unnoticed as well. Her breakfasts were substantial and delicious, with choices for every taste. Our room was well appointed and was a cozy refuge after a drizzly day of sightseeing. We would highly recommend the SB Mansion as a unique lodging choice when in Seattle! Thanks again Brenda for making us feel at home. Mike and Dave White Rock BC
