True hospitality

4.6 on October 31, 2014

This beautiful house was a treat to visit, and the staff made me feel right at home. I appreciated how thoroughly they accommodated my dietary restrictions. Highly recommended!

Shafer Baillie Mansion is the Best!

4.2 on October 30, 2014

I stayed in the Southeast Ballroom for seven days while my condo was being renovated. The staff and owners made me feel like I was at my own home. The entire place is extremely clean and the bed I slept in was very comfortable. Also, it is in a great Capital Hill location, close to good restaurants and coffee houses.

I love this place!

My husband and I felt like royalty while staying here. The neighborhood was beautiful, the mansion was amazing down to every detail. Brenda and Glenn were terrific innkeepers who were able to give great recommendations for places around town. The rooms were very large compared to most B&Bs we have been to. Everything was perfectly restored and modern at the same time. The downside to staying here is that it has spoiled us for other B&Bs in the future.

First Stay in Seattle

4.6 on October 27, 2014

Great stay. Look forward to another visit!!!

Wonderful B&B

4.4 on October 22, 2014

The house was beautiful and the rooms were very comfortable. I wanted to bring the bed home with me. The breakfast, while not cooked to order, was bountiful and varied. It would be almost impossible to walk away with out finding several things you would love. The best part was the hostess, Brenda. She was so dynamic and welcoming. We loved this B&B and would love to return here.

Elegant accomodations

A mansion with a rich history and ideal location. I had no difficulty sleeping as bed extremely comfortable. Large rooms with sofa and desk which allowed me to read without disturbing my husband. Breakfast had something for everyone regardless of "pickiness". As rates dropped October1, stay was a great value. Highly recommend. Thanks Brenda!

Very quiet, lovely old neighborhood, gracious hosts. Several restaurants within walking distance. Close to Volunteer Park and public transportation

Beautiful B & B

This was a wonderful haven in a beautifully restored mansion. Glen and Brenda were very attentive to our needs. Restaurants were only a block away and on our last morning Brenda packed an outstanding breakfast to go as we left early to catch the clipper.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much! Glenn and Brenda are treasures indeed and take enormous pride in making the Mansion a warm and welcoming place.

Vintage Luxury

5 on September 26, 2014

It's stunning to realize that this architectural gem was once a private residence. All of our hosts, including the owner, Ana, were very cordial and excited to share information about the physical details and history of the Mansion. There are several comfortable common rooms downstairs, oozing with vintage charm. The guest rooms are all bright and roomy with views to the Capitol Hill area and beyond (we could see Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains beyond from our bedroom in the aptly-named Elliott Bay Suite). There are shops and restaurants within easy walking distance and the #10 bus (one block away) will take you on a short ride to the heart of downtown Seattle and Pike's Place Market. Overall, this is THE place to stay when visiting Seattle!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your succinct characterization of some of the things that make the Mansion so special. I may be just a bit prejudiced but Ana is #1 in my book!

The hosts are friendly, accommodating and very helpful. Our room was big with a comfy bed and and an extra room for a third person. They are located one block from the bus and getting to downtown was easy. Continental breakfast is actually big and will keep you going all morning. All that and the house is gorgeous, too.
