We booked our stay on line, so did not know how interesting the area around The Shafer Baillie Mansion was. We enjoyed walking and looking at Millionaire's Row and other sites in the area close to the mansion. The house is extraordinary and it was fun to learn about the immediate area from books and newspaper clippings in the library. We were able to come without a car by taking the light rail from the airport and catching the #10 bus. It was easy to walk the 1 block from the bus stop. We used this bus to go downtown, but we walked to the Space Needle, all down hill. Our room was on the top floor, so we got a view of many of the other rooms in person. Since this was not originally a B&B, all the rooms are unique and different. Many with so much room, so good to consider for a longer stay in Seattle. The staff were lovely and helpful. Glenn introduced us to the house and gave a tour. Brenda makes some clay items in the house as well as conversing with us and making breakfast. Ana, the owner, was at breakfast and told us more about the house. We would stay again. We think it was one of the highlights of Seattle.

This was our first B & B experience. It certainly won't be the last. Thank you for making our Seattle visit even more wonderful.

What a gorgeous property. Our hosts were so friendly and made sure we knew how to get into the place since we were arriving quite late. I'm a sucker for restored historic mansions, and this B&B did not disappoint. I felt transported back in time. Every detail of this house was stunning. Our room left nothing to be desired (except perhaps a mini fridge!). Soft towels, ridiculously comfortable bed and linens, plenty of closet space, and beautiful furniture. As always, we wish our stay had been longer! Highly recommended.

We had another wonderful time at the Bailey-Shafer BB. The house is so lovely and its obvious the owner and caretakers spend a lot of time maintaining the beauty. Our host, Brenda is warm, funny and makes an incredible breakfast for guests every day. This is the place to stay while in Seattle.

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.
