Our room was beautiful and had all the amenities we needed-wifi, a comfortable separate room for my son, large full bath. The location was great, close to a large park and shops and restaurants with easy access to downtown.
"Outstanding" ratings but for some reason the last circle-click is not working. This place was so lovely we didn't leave until we had to get to the airport-not even to visit the area or dine. The food provisions were abundant and special, cottage extremely clean and well decorated, facility had multiple seating areas outside allowing different views. The exterior hot tub was very nice and private. I only wish it was located on the east coast-closer to where we live! It would have been a wonderful place to have spent a week or more.
All we were looking for in a B&B with the finest hospitality. Two blocks to the Route 5 bus to downtown, not far from the 44 into Ballard and the U, and good dining a short walk up Phinney. And Enterprise rental car in Ballard will pick you up and drop you off.
My mother and I stayed with Linda and Tom for two nights during a quick visit to Seattle. We had our own rooms and a very comfy and inviting living space to hang out together. Breakfast both mornings was fabulous! Thanks to Linda's knowledge of the Seattle public transportation (clean and convenient trains and monorail) and her preparation (she has pre-printed handouts to assist with sightseeing) we were able to fit in Pike Market, the Giant Wheel, the Space Needle and Chihuly Garden in one day with only a short drive to and from the LINK station. She and Tom are warm, engaging hosts who spend just the right amount of time with their guests. I would highly recommend staying with them if you are lucky enough to find a vacancy!
My wife and I spent on night in late September at Halcyon Suite and we REALLY enjoyed it. We were into town before a cruise, so didn't get to spend a whole lot of time in the room, but when we were there, it was so peaceful and lovely, especially out on the deck overlooking the greensward and the harbor. It's part of a multi-unit complex, but to be honest, we were never aware of anyone around us. You go down some steep steps to reach your deck, and then into the very, very nice room. We arrived on a Thursday late afternoon and spent some time just taking some great pictures from the deck. Then we were mere steps from the top of the park, which we walked all the way down and strolled to Number 6 Cider (Great) and Holy Mountain Brewing (okay) before taking an Uber to the delightful restaurant How To Cook a Wolf. Great dinner, fast ride home and snuggled into the comfortable bed. The next morning we say on our deck to enjoy the nice breakfast we were provided, and even clearly saw our cruise ship, which was a bonus. The room comes with a set of binoculars, which we availed ourselves of that morning. We had no plans prior to cruising, so just spend a very relaxed morning in the suite. It is so very cozy and comfortable and well-furnished. Note: the room really is only for 2 people. And you do need to be able to climb a few fairly steep stairs. But next time we're in Seattle to catch a cruise, this is where we hope to stay. Reasonable price and great location near the pier and not too far from downtown and other key spots.
Situé dans un quartier calme de Seattle, ce B&B conjugue confort, charme et ambiance chaleureuse. Nous avions la chambre "Cascade" qui est joliment décorée et dotée d'un lit confortable. Le petit-déjeuner est délicieux. Il faut aussi mentionner les "plus" comme les peignoirs moelleux, les boissons (café, thé, sodas, eau) à discrétion, le wifi gratuit, les livres et DVD à disposition. Seattle downtown est accessible par une ligne de bus dont une station se trouve à 10' à pied. Bref, je recommande chaudement et remercie Blayne et Julie pour leur accueil.
It was the perfect B&B for celebrating my retirement and 60th birthday gift from my children. Korby/Randle made our stay wonderful from a fantastic breakfast to the tempurpetic bed at night. The house was warm and inviting the way it was decorated,and we loved the fact it was modern and not old! We stayed on the lower level, which was also perfect, didn't hear any noise. You should be proud of your B&B it is lovely and #1 on our list of places we stayed!
We enjoyed our 2 night stay here very much. The building is full of character and history, the bedroom was spacious and the public rooms - library, dining room, lounge and conservatory- were great places to sit and relax. Breakfast was very good and we appreciated the take away breakfast on our final morning as we had to leave early for our flight. The mansion is convenient for buses into downtown and is set in a quiet residential area within a short walk of local shops and restaurants. An ideal place to stay in Seattle.
The Shafer Baillie Mansion is located in a lovely neighborhood and was a convenient walk to my yoga retreat. The host was extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were outstanding and the host offered to purchase vegan options for me.
I booked 2 nights at Shafer Baillie Mansion because it reminded me somewhat of Downton Abbey. Everything about our stay was lovely. Anna Lena, our warm host, was there to greet us upon arrival and settle us into our room. The decor was beautiful and we enjoyed taking advantage of the sunroom to relax and read. Anna Lena was more than helpful with dinner reservations and transportation questions. Breakfast was simple but plentiful and delicious. We couldn't have asked for a nicer experience. Will definitely recommend Shafer Baillie to anyone traveling to Seattle.
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Sleeping Bulldog. Very comfortable accommodations, excellent breakfast. Korby and Randal were gracious and welcoming. The location is perfect with great views; it is also close to the bus line. We also really enjoyed playing with the bulldogs!
First time in Seattle and staying at a B&B and we were so happy that we found this gem. Great place & location. We highly recommend this place for their top notch accommodation & gourmet food. Awesome host & staff. Love your bulldogs! Thank you Korby!
This B&B is not to be missed! We stayed at 9 Cranes Inn when my son was getting married at the Woodland Park Zoo -- so the location was perfect. We absolutely loved our time at 9 Cranes -- the rooms were lovely and comfortable. Shelley's breakfasts were delicious, and she made all of us feel so welcome.
My husband and I stayed here the weekend after Labor Day. It was our first weekend away from our toddler who is 20 months. Gloriously comfortable beds that we gratefully slept straight through the night in. Our hostess, Brenda, was lovely and makes a great egg breakfast. The home is beautifully restored with great light in all of the rooms. I found the price to be affordable and it's location to the rest of Seattle to be ideal. We easily grabbed an uber, walked or rented city bikes to scoot around the city.
Overnight stay. The room was a nice size and had a private bath with shower and tub, plus balcony. Everything was clean and nicely decorated. Lots of lovely antiques in the main room. Located only 3 blocks from shopping/dining and a park. Lovely walk through a beautiful old neighborhood.
After struggling to find a nice hotel room for a fair price in the heart of the city Labor Day Weekend, we decided to try something different and booked this B & B after reading the amazing reviews here on TripAdvisor. It did not disappoint! Just a few minutes drive outside of Downtown, this B & B is right on Greenlake (which offers a wonderful pedestrian path around the lake, that always has people out and about). We loved the peaceful neighborhood and its end charming homes everywhere you look. We stayed in the Greenlake room which was smaller but extremely well decorated with no expense spared: Remote controlled fireplace, heated bathroom floors, jetted tub, luxury sheets.. the list goes on. It was our 5th anniversary, and we walked in to a perfectly wrapped gift and note on the bed congratulating us. The breakfast was delicious and different each day: Omelets, banana pancakes, and lots of other options to substitute or add on depending on what you want! Highly recommended.
We stayed here as a family with two kids, 11 and 13. Great hosts, perfect breakfast, everything is like it should be or even better. More than enough space, which was great. Location is about 10min from the airport - but no plane noise. Into the city it takes about 20min by car. Beautiful garden, we even saw hummingbirds. We will gladly return when getting back!
Beautiful mansion in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle. Close to many restaurants. Breakfasts were delicious with a very friendly and gracious host, Brenda. Spent 3 nights there in August while visiting our son. We are planning to stay there next time!
In July this year I had family visiting from England and after picking them up from the airport we wanted to stay for a few days in Seattle to show them the sights. I booked us into Greenlake Guest House sight unseen. What a fortuitous choice! My family had one room and my husband and I had another and on our return to Spokane we all agreed that we couldn't have found a better place. The rooms and house were spotlessly clean, comfortable, and friendly. The breakfasts were wonderful, and our hosts kept a refrigerator supplied with water and cold drinks, and a coffee/tea area, both of which were accessible day and night. The surrounding area is lovely! The lake and park is right across the street, and shops, restaurants, etc., an easy walk from the guest house. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful, and although my family are back in England now, my husband and I will always call Greenlake Guest House first when we come to Seattle to visit our son. Thank you Blayne and Julie.
Great place to stay. The mansion is beautiful inside & out. Very clean & quiet. Brenda is a great hostess. She will provide anything you need. It is also nice there is a restroom for your guests one the main floor so they don't have to go up to your room. I loved the library with all of the cool, unique games & info about Seattle. The tree lined street are nice to walk morning & evening. Very convenient for many places to eat.....
This was our first stay here, but won't be our last. We were made to feel very welcome, like part of the family. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast options were extensive. We get to Seattle on a regular basis and will certainly try to stay here again.
Brenda is very helpful. She will answer any questions you may have. The Bed & Breakfast is very beautiful in a beautiful setting. You can lose yourself just walking around the peaceful neighborhoods. The bed & breakfast is beautifully furnished. Please check out the library with the unique game boards for life, monopoly, clue etc. Very charming place to stay while in Seattle.
