My husband and I decided to stay at Meritage Meadows Inn after our wedding. The owners, Bob and Karen, were very accommodating. We dropped off our bags and car way before check-in (8:30am) and both Bob and Karen greeted us with warm smiles and all the Inn's information for when we returned after our wedding. They even put our bags in our room and left a lovely welcome letter on the door so that we would have all the information needed, just in case we forgot after a long day of wedding festivities! Breakfast was amazing, the room was stunning, and the wine tasting was perfect. Though the Inn is only a few miles from our home, we felt like we had truly escaped reality for a few days. We will return.
Helping to celebrate special occasions is one of the secret joys of innkeeping. It was our delight to share in your joy of the wedding and to support your recovery during your stay. Please think of us for anniversaries and other events (like when Grands can take the kids and give you a night off!).

We stayed at Meritage Meadows the night we went to see Cirque du Soleil at Marymoor Park. The Inn was less than 10 minutes from the park and was nestled in the woods deep enough to forget about everything other than relaxing and enjoying ourselves. Bob and Karen were perfect hosts, we had a wine tasting and good chat in one of the living areas and then got some good recommendations for dinner at Redmond Bar & Grill. The rest of the night was awesome, and coming back to the room to relax in the oversized tub was perfect. We got up at 8 and had an amazing breakfast before checking out. I would recommend this B&B to anyone who wants to get away or is staying in the area.
That Staycation you described is the perfect antidote to winter blahs! We love being able to offer that sort of getaway, whether it is just a break from the humdrum, escaping the kids, or celebrating a special occasion. It does all of us good to break the routine.

Bob and Karen's Meritage Meadows Inn for me is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Although it is not a hotel. It is a home. You feel so welcome as if you visit your own family. And indeed you are. The most polite hosts care of your comfort by all means. An excellent breakfast prepared by Bob, Karen's scones, cookies and muffins, complementary snacks, drinks, ice cream 24/7. You couldn't feel any better. And the house. Cosy, clean, comfortable. You won't miss anything. It is hidden in the woods of Redmond, a perfect hideaway after an exhausting business day. Enjoy.
As a business traveller, I had the opportunity to awaken in hotels so many mornings and find that there was nothing in the room that let me know where I was in the world. So much effort has gone into branding that the rooms all look the same. Karen and I wanted our rooms to truly reflect the Northwest and that each room would be unique. We are so happy to hear that yours was a pleasurable stay. We love business travellers.

My wife and I visited Meritage Meadows over Christmas. It was awesome. When we booked the trip we were unsure about being away from home over the holiday. We didn't need to be.The inn and the innkeepers were fabulous. It was a great Christmas and a great place to be. Food-fantastic, wine tasting-fantastic, inn-fantastic. we'll be back.
Christmas is a special time of year. Many of our guests are visiting family in our area and we try to keep the Christmas spirit alive while they are with us as well. We are so happy you enjoyed the visit!

The facilities, room, and grounds were comfortable and comforting, A peaceful setting only a few miles from the center of downtown Redmond. The inn keepers were engaging, tended to every request, and the two breakfasts I had were crazy good, with the main dishes (eggs benedict, and Finnish pancake) accompanied by fresh baked scones, fresh fruit, local cider, and piping hot substantive coffee. Oh, and did I mention the onsite winery. I got half a case. Just go there.
While Meritage Meadows is a B&B, Karen and I think that Breakfast is "The Big B." It is lovely to hear that you enjoyed what we served. Unfortunately, we don't serve any breakfast wine pairings.

Wonderful stay at this hidden, quiet, graceful gem of a B&B. Bob and Karen are warm, friendly, knowledgeable and gracious hosts who are passionate about what they do.. The breakfasts are delicious and varied. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Since we came to the area specifically to taste wines, we were equally impressed by the passion that Bob and his partners have about their wines produced under the Cinq label. Their reds are at least as good as or better than other Washington (or California) wines costing more than twice as much. Worth seeking out by fellow wine geeks.
We love wine Geeks! We feel blessed that Meritage Meadows Inn is located in an area where so many great wines can be discovered and sampled. Bob loves the opportunity to share his wines from Cinq Cellars and to help our guests discover other gems from our area.

We totally enjoyed our recent stay at Merritage Meadows Inn. Our hosts were very gracious and accomodating. The B&B is very spacious and quiet. The breakfasts were outstanding! We spent some time with the other guests enjoying ourselves to a complimentary wine tasting. Thank you very much for a wonderful stay.
5 on September 07, 2016
What a great B&B, nestled in the woods away from traffic and noise, yet close to all the wineries!! We only spent one night, even so, the rooms were wonderful, clean, quiet, well appointed. Got some recommendations for dinner which turned out to be perfect, an opportunity to eat local. Breakfast was equally good and just what we needed as we headed out to the local wineries. Highly recommended and where we'll be staying when we return to the area.

On previous visits to the Seattle area, we stayed at the Willows Lodge in Woodinville or hotels in Seattle. that was a great place but it has priced itself out of our range recently. Meritage Meadows was a perfect alternative and will be our choice for accommodations in the future. The setting is serene, with deer and bunnies on the lower lawn and a relaxing gazebo where we sampled wines from Cinq (the innkeeper's winery). The breakfasts were extraordinary and so far superior to the breakfasts we had at Willows Lodge (or any other B & B we have stayed at); the recipes are available online. The innkeepers were a wealth of knowledge on the area and had great suggestions for places to visit and restaurants to try. We just can't say enough good things about Meritage Meadows.

My in-laws from France stayed at Meritage Meadows Inn. We were able to experience the wonders of this property as we returned on a daily basis to pick them up. Bob invited us to enjoy the gardens and house as well. We were very lucky because Bob speaks excellent French. He made us all feel at home. He is so kind, knowledgeable, and the perfect host for a bed and breakfast. He makes his own professional maps and is a great guide in letting you know what places to visit in the area. It's close to Seattle, but such a tranquil place to relax in. The house is big and beatiful with a huge deck. Bob even gave us our own private wine tasting of the deliciously delicate wines he creates on the property under the label of cinq cellars. The reisling was just up my alley because it was dry and not sweet like your typical reisling. The rose had it's own unique flavor in which no other rose tastes like it. My husband loved "the storm" red. The gardens are beautiful and filled with lots of cute animals. We will definitely be staying here on our next trip to Redmond Washington.
It was so lovely to get the opportunity to speak French and share our wines with fun guess. We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Bob and Karen are wonderful innkeepers. They are both so personable. We had good and helpful discussions every morning over breakfast and any other time we wanted advice about the area. The breakfasts are amazing - delicious and different every day! We will stay here again for sure when we return to visit our kids and grandkids in the area!
5 on December 27, 2015
A really great place for a calm and luxurious stay in greater Seattle area. One of the best B&Bs I ever have stayed in. Don't miss Bob and Karen's perfect breakfast and the wines Bob is producing by himself.

My wife and I had an enjoyable 10 night stay at Meritage Meadows on a brief visit from the UK to see our daughter and family just round the corner in Hunters Glen. The Inn is extremely comfortable and clean and Bob and Karen most welcoming yet unobtrusive hosts with whom we had several very interesting and informative talks and discussions. The facilities are excellent including a library, a TV room, non-stop coffee and a refrigerator with icecream and soft drinks also available 24 hours a day. There was also an excellent library and sitting room and as Karen and Bob live in a flat separate from the Inn the feeling is almost of being in your own home. The breakfast was very individual and excellent and the icing on the cake was the complementary tasting of wines from the Inn's own winery....Cinq wines. They were delicious. We shall certainly be back.
5 on October 21, 2015
Warm reception, beautiful inn, noticeable attention to detail. The bed was extremely comfortable and I didn't want to get out. The bathroom was impressive (how often do you find a towel warmer in an inn)! I loved being able to grab a snack (homemade cookies and a cup of tea) before bed. It is awesome that they have a refrigerator for guest to grab a drink or ice cream and popcorn. The breakfast was almost indescribable it was so good. Their version of eggs Benedicts was delicious- their own wine sauce was the perfect topping. Every food item was homemade with love. The hosts are very hospitable and they know how to let the guest enjoy their stay. BEAUTIFUL grounds and quite surroundings; very peaceful.
We really enjoy watching our guests relax and re-create when they visit Meritage Meadows. Thanks for your nice comments about the amenities. Karen and I traveled widely in our careers and we have tried to take the best ideas we saw and include them here in our own offerings.

My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Meritage Meadows. Bob & Karen are warm, welcoming hosts. They are also owners of a winery and Bob treated us to a tasting of his wonderful wines on our first night. We were surprised at how delicious they are. They also cook a delicious breakfast at your chosen time (within reason) and are very accommodating to special dietary needs. The Inn is located on beautiful, well maintained grounds and surrounded by beautiful tall red cedar and fir. The rooms are lovely and we had the pleasure of staying in the room with its own Japanese soaking tub and private sauna. We felt very welcome and comfortable sipping wine on the deck, eating in the dining room, and reading in the gazebo. A pleasant surprise was the lovely town of Redmond with its great selection of restaurants. It only took us a half hour to get into Seattle from the Inn. We will go back without the slightest hesitation if our travels take us back that way again.
5 on July 12, 2015
Meritage Meadows is a jewel of a B&B. Comfortable, homey, quiet, with attention to details such as plenty of pillows and blankets, heated bathroom floors, excellent breakfasts, fresh baked cookies, and snacks and coffee and tea available. The grounds are beautiful, well managed but just a bit wild as well. Bob and Karen easily managed my dietary needs, and post recipes on their website. I plan to try out a couple of the recipes soon. If we return to Redmond WA area, we hope to stay again at Meritage Meadows Inn.
4.8 on May 31, 2015
Fantastic spot, beautiful grounds and gardens, charming house. Spotless rooms and bathrooms, great amenities and lovely hosts. Do not miss out on the CINQ wine tasting with Bob and his great stories! Most highly recommended find and will come back myself if ever in the area again. Far better than staying in Seattle! Breakfast was delicious too.
5 on May 24, 2015
Was in the area for business and thought I'd try a B&B. WOW what a find. Relaxing, clean, quiet and just what I needed after a hard day. The wine tasting was an unexpected bonus and so good I bought 6 bottles. This is great for the business person who wants to relax after working hard all day. Sure there is great WiFi if you want it, but try enjoying the friendly hosts and other guests or just relax on the backyard deck and enjoy the beautiful grounds with a good book. I'll be back for sure!

It is so nice to have a place to stay away from home that feels like home. Very low key, comfortable, convenient....could go on and on. The hospitality doesn't get any better. It is like staying with friends. Highly recommend this Inn if you need a place in the Seattle area.
5 on October 21, 2014
This is truly a gem. Stayed one night and extended. Our hosts, Bob and Karen went out of their way to make our stay special. The rooms were large and comfortable. Common areas pleasant. Breakfast great. Welcomed with a wine tasting, Convenient location to Seattle and wineries. Must stay here when in the area. Jim and Mary Indianapolis

On a recent business trip to Seattle, i had the pleasure in stopping in the Meritage Meadows Inn for a couple of nights. The hospitality and the Inn including the cleanliness is much better than many 5 star hotels I've stopped in. Bob and Karen, make you feel most welcome in their home, and nothing was any trouble. I can't recommend this hotel enough. !!! People thinking of stopping and working in the Redmond area, this hotel is 3 miles from Microsoft campus, and costs $10 in a taxi from the inn. Without doubt on another trip to Redmond/Seattle, i will be stopping by the Inn again.
5 on August 09, 2014
Every hotel and inn should be like this, clean, friendly, with excellent personal service. Bob and Karen have a beautiful inn in a gorgeous setting. I had the best breakfast there. They are very helpful and have all the amenities of a big hotel, but in a gorgeous setting that is a home away from home. Just come down in the morning and have a great breakfast of crepes with raspberry filling with some sausage and a couple of home made apricot scones, along with home made apple cider, get some coffee from the counter, grab a water bottle to go. Later come back and grab a couple of cookies and go sit out back and enjoy the beautiful view of the back yard. Other amenities are WiFi, a nice library, great entertainment room with a bunch of DVDs, an exercise room, big bathroom with Jacuzzi with jets, towel warmer, you name it and Bob and Karen will provide for you.
5 on July 09, 2014
Our family stayed 2 nights at Meritage Meadows. We enjoyed a hike nearby, attended a wonderful concert at Marymoor Park, and spent a day wine tasting. By the way, Bob is a great winemaker in his own right! A really beautiful inn and the grounds are lush and green. We even had epic weather! Bob and Karen obviously enjoy what they do and truly care about the quality of their guests' experience. It was certainly worth the trip all the way from Hawaii!
5 on June 18, 2014
I was visiting Redmond for work and stumbled across the Meritage while looking for somewhere to stay. I was due to stay down town on my second visit and chose to stay here instead. Bob and Karen are great hosts, and they really make you feel welcome.
4.6 on November 14, 2013
Message to all travelers to the Seattle area: this is a guaranteed joy with its high-quality facilities and grounds, the lush forest setting, proximity to Redmond and Seattle and beyond and, above all, the great hosting and cuisine prepared by Bob and Karen. Our family reunion group of four fully enjoyed our 4-day, with each day introduced by an inventive and delicious gourmet breakfast. Bob shared his time with us when necessary to provide guidance on exploring the area. He also went out of his way to assure an (very) early morning taxi departure to the airport. All told: a wonderful stay. Thank you Karen and Bob.
5 on June 19, 2013
Outstanding! It was my first stay at a B and B. It was spectacular; very clean, food was excellent and the outside property beautiful. Great setting, the Inn keepers were charming and the whole experience was fabulous. I'm afraid other B&B's won't compare to Meritage Meadows Inn, now.. the 'queen' is spoiled.
5 on March 04, 2013
We spent the night at Meritage Meadows and were surprised by the warm welcome and personal service. The grounds and building are well kept and along with the detail oriented service, create an atmosphere of calm and relaxation. The best part for us was that we were made to feel at ease whether we chose to be with everyone else or just be on our own. Thank you for the respite from a hectic busy life!
5 on July 15, 2012
My husband & I drove up from Olympia for just an evening out. The property is amazing. It's just outside of town, but feels like you're deep in the forest! Bob & Karen go above and beyond from the land, the home, the wine (!) and the food! The room was very cozy, love the heated towel warmer! Breakfast was the highlight. Bob made his own special version of a time tested favorite.We will be back and recommend this to anyone wishing to get away from the hustle and bustle of life! ~Brandi & Bryce
5 on June 21, 2012
Meritage Meadows is in a wonderful location, with a host who went beyond accomodating to make our stay most enjoyable. Breakfasts were incredible and wine tastings delightful. The rooms were luxurious and the grounds simply amazing. Thanks, Meritage Meadows, for a delightful stay.
5 on June 06, 2012
My sisters, niece and I stayed at Meritage Meadows June 2-3, it was great! Bob and Karen were very nice, great breakfast, wonderful rooms, very peaceful and beautiful gounds and rooms. The Walla Walla room was great, had everything we needed - heated towel rack and bathroom floor a definite plus! I'd definitely recommend it!
5 on June 05, 2012
My husband and I stayed at Meritage Meadows for two nights over Memorial Day weekend, and are very happy that we did. Bob and Karen are lovely people who go out of their way to make sure that their guests feel welcome. Also, the breakfasts are above and beyond the norm. Very highly recommended to travelers looking for a relaxing home away from home with some genuinely nice as their hosts.
5 on May 27, 2012
Bob and Karen have an outstanding bed and breakfast. This was our second stay and we stayed in the Walla Walla this time and it was as exceptional as the rooms in the house. Even though they have a kitty, they keep Topo the kitty out of this room so people with allergies to cats can have a cat-free room. The breakfasts they serve are akin to a five-star restaurant and they go all out with fresh hand-pressed cider from down the road if you want, fresh fruit cups with a very large variety of fruit, fresh scones or muffins that change daily, and the main entree which is always scrumptions and fabulous. They have a little fridge area that you can put your leftovers if you have them from dinner and a microwave to heat them up. They stock the freezer with delicious Hagen Daz ice cream bars or Ben and Jerry ice cream. They are wonderful hosts, have traveled extensively, and have interesting stories. The grounds are beautiful and it is a wonderfully quiet and restful place. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. I find their decor tasteful, more of a craftsman style and feel, rather than foo-foo stuff you find at a lot of B&Bs.

My five days stay at this superb inn located on a 13 acre oasis of wooded peace was nothing short of perfect. A truly impeccable lodging and most gracious hosts. The gourmet breakfasts, different every day, would win awards in any contest. I couldn't think of anything that was not just right. It's a 5 star plus in my book! Charlie J

We recently traveled to the Redmond Washington area for business and stayed at Meritage Meadows Inn. We were delighted & pleased with all aspects of our accommodations. The grounds are picturesque, surrounded in lush forest. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. Bedding was excellant including pillows comforters & sheets. Bathrooms included heated flooring & towel racks & separate climate control in both, which we really appreciated since we stayed in early spring which is rather cold . Common areas were well thought out with plenty of comfortable reading space inside & out. The dining area is set up with separate tables and breakfast is served per guests. Every morning we had a lovely bowl with an array of fresh fruit and berries, excellant fresh ground coffee, choice of juice & although we were surprised & delighted with each meal we were served, from eggs benedict, apple & blueberry stuffed crepes, savory frittata, stuffed french toast, and lovely homemade scones & biscuits, we understand that if you have any special dietary needs your hosts Bob & Karen would attend to them. Bob Spencer is also a winemaker & he is happy to offer winetastings in the evening with a nice variety of wines. Bob & Karen are knowledable in regards to the area for directions & suggestions for dining and while helpful & attentive, they have created an environment which offers much appreciated privacy. Bob & Karen Spencer really seemed to think of everything for a delightful & comfortable stay. We highly recommend Meritage Meadows & will be re-booking soon! Oh- and let me not forget the deciding factor of our choice of Meritage Meadows- Topo the Inn cat - she pops in to check on all & make sure everything is just right-!
5 on April 03, 2012
We rented two rooms for me and my wife and the kids. The greeting was very kind. We were even greated by Topo (the cat) The rooms are wonderful, the staff is friendly and very help. The prices are very resonable for the room and service offered. Hoping to go back soon

We stayed for just one night because we didn't want to drive home after a showing of Cavalia. Bob and Karen were wonderful hosts. Our room was immaculate, the bed was confy, the wine tasting was great, breakfast was delicious but most of all, our hosts understood when to just serve the coffee. In an absolutely unbelieveable turn of events, a friend from high school and college, whom we had lost track of, was also staying there. Bob and Karen understood that what we needed was time to talk and they kept the coffee coming - no pressure to finish up or leave. The home is lovely and they are wonderful hosts.

We stayed at Meritage Meadown Inn over Christmas this year while visiting family. Karen and Bob were delightful hosts. Our room was warm and inviting, and our breakfasts were delicious. We look forward to coming again when we can enjoy the walking trails in the woods. We loved the location - so convenient!
5 on January 03, 2012
We had a wonderful 2 night getaway to celebrate our anniversary. Bob and Karen were wonderful hosts and great cooks for our breakfasts. The wine tasting was great and informative. Bob truly knows his wines. The location was beautiful and peaceful even though only a few minutes from Redmond Towncenter.

If you are reading this review, it means you are in doubt. I understand you perfectly, therefore, I decided to write it. We are planning to relocate to Seattle in our near future, and we needed a place to stay in order to be closer to the area we have in mind. This B&B was an excellent choice. First of all, people who run this place are true human beings , interesting and kind. They were excellent hosts and we are right to move to the area where such people exist. Rooms are nicely decorated, walls are a bit thin, just like in a house, so quietness is a key. It is a serene atmosphere with beautiful surroundings. Too bad I could not explore it, since it was cold and we were busy. Breakfast was cooked by the hosts and it was very good, especially waffles with homemade blueberry syrup. They offer wine-tasting ( they make wine by themselves!) and we were ready to buy a case of this excellent wine if it could be sold and allowed on the plane. You can drink coffee or tea anytime you want it, and you make it by yourself, which is convenient. There is no TV in the room, but I saw it as a respect to all guests rather than a minus. You did not come there to watch TV. You still can, if you are bored, since they have a special room for that with DVDs, nice armchairs, etc. Bob recommended us a good place to eat and we were very pleased with his choice. The place is called Stone House ,small restaurant and an excellent chef, really creative. The only problem during my stay was a bed in a blue room, since it was a bit small for my 6' 6" husband and me, but soft and warm anyway. Next time I will just ask for a wider bed, but for one person it is OK. So, do not think twice, trust me, I am an experience traveler, I know things!

Meritage Meadows is in a beautiful location, and the host was incredibly accommodating to our various dietary needs. Gluten-free scones OMG the yum!

Thanks to Bob and Karen for providing the framework for a relaxing anniversary get away! Our room was well appointed and the property had lots of little touches that makes this a nice play to stay. The heated floors in the bathrooms, the soaking tubs, wine glasses in the rooms, the alcove with comfy chairs to relax and read or play games, the media room, weight room, walking trails are just a few of the extra delights. Throw in a wine tasting with Bob, delicious breakfast, and friendly hosts and you have the Meritage Meadows. They are very knowledgable about the local area for restaraunts and wine tastings. A very enjoyable 2 days spent on Union Hill!

I recently stayed at Meritage Meadows for 3 nights in the Red Mountain room. Everything about the place was lovely...from the beautiful house, to the breathtaking location, to the delicious breakfast. The innkeepers (Bob & Karen) were so friendly and hospitable, and made sure we were well taken care of. I'd definitely love to make a return visit someday.
4.6 on October 31, 2011
My husband surprised me with a getaway this past weekend and we stayed two nights at the Meritage Meadows B&B. It was a great spot for a special weekend! Bob and Karen, the Innkeepers, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, supplying us with information about the area and some fun conversation over a glass of their tasty wines. They have done a great job in turning a beautiful home into a spotlessly clean, nicely decorated, inviting B&B. The rooms are very comfortable; comfy beds, luxurious linens, and the heated tile floors and warm towels are a real treat! Breakfast was tasty and nicely served and we felt very welcomed. The grounds are beautiful, and we enjoyed the quiet of the location, while being close to the wineries and eateries of Redmond and Woodinville. Definitely a place we'd return when staying near Seattle or exploring more of the wineries in the area.
5 on October 30, 2011
My boyfriend and I stayed at Meritage for just one night after wine tasting in Woodenville, but we will definitely be back! The house is gorgeous, tucked back in the woods away from it all. The room as perfect, spacious and comfortable, loved the heated floors in the bathroom. Bed was so comfortable we almost slept through breakfast which would have been tragic because it was so good, crepes with fresh fruit and homemade jelly, yum!

I am from the desert, so when me and my family arrived at the Inn my breath was stolen away. The surroundings are just wonderful!! We stayed two nights, but wish it was more. Mr Bob, the Innkeeper, made us AMAZING granola chocolate chip cookies to die for, and kept the jar in our room filled. The whole family was very hospitable, even though our large group was quite loud :) I really want to stay here again next time I am in the PNW. Highly recommend!
4.8 on September 14, 2011
The rooms were luxurious and no comfort was overlooked in the design, including built in floor heating. We were sad to miss the afternoon wine tasting proposed by the owners, wine from their own vineyard. Their welcome was warm, friendly, and tasteful. Definitely recommend.
5 on September 12, 2011
Had to stay in the area, and for about the same $$ as the two/three-star hotels we were able to stay at Meritage Meadows. Karen and Bob have done an amazing job of making each room very nice. The Red Mountain room with sauna and deep tub was amazing--definitely worth the trip and price. Wine sampling was great, and the breakfast would be hard to match even in the nice restaurants. You will love this place.
4.8 on September 08, 2011
Bob & Karen make you feel right at home. They are very helpful in helping you make decisions about nearby wineries. They enjoy engaging you in conversation and helping you with whatever your needs might be. The setting is beautiful and quiet--tucked away in the trees, yet nearby to all that Redmond and Woodinville have to offer. The rooms have everything needed for your one or more night stay. Their library is huge, and if you need a TV, there is a large one downstairs. But the room set-up encourages you to converse with one another and forget the TV. So if you're heading to the Redmond/Woodinville area you would be hard-pressed to find a better place to stay. Art & Marty Cosgrove..Olympia, WA

My new wife and I spent three nights at Meritage Meadows on our honeymoon. What an excellent place to stay! We stayed in the Red Mountain room, which was quite excellent. The room was very nice, the sauna in the bathroom was delightful. And breakfast was amazing! All three mornings the breakfast was absolutely delicious, and the service provided by Bob and Karen was absolutely excellent. Overall, we were very impressed, I highly suggest you stop by for a night or five!
4.4 on August 29, 2011
My favorite part of Meritage was the beautiful grounds. Bob was so enthusiastic about wildlife and providing habitat I was impressed. Working towards getting the grounds stewardship certified was equally impressive. Looking forward to returning and walking the wildlife trails. And last but certainly not least- the breakfast was outstanding.

This was our first stay at a B&B and the experience could not have been better. The location was very convenient, and the property was absolutely amazing! The room exceeded our expectations and Bob and Karen did everything they could to make our stay perfect. Great breakfast, evening wine tastings, and great advice for local activities and restaurants. Meritage Meadows exceeded our expectations in every way and we will definitely stay there again when in the Seattle area!

This property is beautiful. The team onsite were the epitomy of hospitality. They laughed at my attempts at humor. Food was 5 star ! Very Quiet . They suggested local food and wine tours that were excellent. We will make it an annual visit !!

My husband and I enjoyed his surprise 30th birthday in the Yakima room, it was peaceful and serene, and just what we both needed! The inn keepers meet all are needs including an early breakfast. I hope to come back in the future for another special event. Thanks Meritage Meadows for a memorable stay.

I am allergic to all milk (cow) products and eggs. The breakfasts I have been served were both safe and delicious. Not something I often get when I eat away from home. The beds and comfy and the rooms are well appointed and clean. We have stayed with them several times and will go back in the future when the situation requires a stay in Redmond.
I enjoy creating tasty meals for our guests which address their dietary restrictions. Our Breakfasts are an important part of your experience, so it is always pleasant to hear what you liked as well as how we can accommodate your needs.

Absolutely everything about this place is wonderful. It's a beautiful property, the rooms are spotless, the beds are cozy, and the Inn keeper are so friendly and welcoming. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We went to Woodinville for a concert and didn't want a long drive back so we stayed only one night, we didn't want to leave. It was a perfect getaway. We came home rested and relaxed.

We found Meritage Meadows based on all of the excellent reviews, and I feel obliged to add to the chorus. We stayed for only one night while attempting a child-free getaway. Friendly hosts, a comfortable bed and room that feels spacious and classy, a 5:30pm wine tasting offered by the vintner/host, and a delicious hot breakfast in the morning. What's not to love? Also, a very "country" feel although it is just 10 minutes from Redmond and 25 minutes from Seattle. The driveway is short, but it takes you away from noise and any sense of city--you feel like you could be in the middle of the wilderness somewhere. Nice thing about being close is that you can have dinner at the EXCELLENT Stone House restaurant in Redmond.

We stayed in the Walla Walla. In addition to outstanding custom breakfasts and fruit bowls, the hosts helped me to host a wedding shower. Our room was comfortable and spacious, the home made cookies were superb. Highly recommended if you want a quiet place to stay that is not a hotel. The only very, very slight issue was that parking when rooms were filled was unclear. We'll definitely go back the next time we visit my sister who lives nearby.

The B&B is located only 30 minutes away from downtown Seattle but it is in the middle of nature. It is a perfect place to relax and it was too bad that we only had a one day to stay. If we have a chance to visit Seattle again, we will definitely stay at Meritage Meadows. Thank you so much for your hospitality and gorgeous breakfast!!

My husband and I were out spending quality time together participating in a mud run, hiking, and biking so the Meritage Inn was a wonderful treat in between all of the action and adventure of the great outdoors! The first impression of the inn was beautiful and warm. We were made to feel very comfortable and welcomed! We were very impressed by the gorgeous grounds, the beautiful surrounding land, and outside areas to sit and enjoy it all! The inside of the home was just stunning! Loved the breakfast room set up with individual tables, superb service, and DELICIOUS gourmet food! Our room was immaculate, the bathroom was perfect! I really notice all of the extra details such as bath salts, makeup remover pads, robes, and towel warmer. There were many "extras" that really made it nice! We loved the little goodies that were offered upon arrival and throughout like the lemonade and yummy cookies! We enjoyed the use of the movie room and if stayed longer would have used the "gym" as well! The individual teas and coffees available along with the ice-cream were sweet surprises! We appreciated the help with booking dinner and the warm conversation with you both as this is all part of a memorable experience. We enjoy staying at different B&B's and seeing how they each differ. The Meritage Inn was on the top of our list and would love to return in the future. You are doing a wonderful job creating a very personable, luxurious, and nature lovers retreat. We will cherish our coffee mug that we purchased and smile when we use it remembering the wonderful stay we had! Thank you for everything! I would highly recommend this wonderful inn to anyone looking to experience an excellent B&B!!

Bob and Karen are wonderful Innkeepers. They were so hospitable and took great care of us. The location was fabulous - quiet and remote, but still close to shopping and wonderful restaurants.
5 on July 01, 2011
It is a relaxing a beautiful home, with large and comfortable rooms! But most importantly, the family--Bob, Karen and Mitch--really love people and make you feel at home. They're willing to give you rides, local advice, a tour of the winery and wine tastings. Because they are so gregarious, it makes the guests enjoy each other's company even more as well.

We loved this place. The bed was the softest bed ever. The breakfast Bob makes are out of this world. Love the large bathroom, the fuzzily tub could of been bigger but overall it was nice. It was very quite and peaceful, no noise, neighbors, or traffic. Bob and Karen was very nice and helpful, made us feel right at home. Will be back next year and will be bringing my friends and their hubby's also!

We stayed here while visiting my son. It was very nice and the breakfast was wonderful. The snacks and drinks which were available all of the time was nice since we kept varying hours. They were even nice enough to take us to the bus stop to go to the airport so that my son would have to get up very early. I thought that was above and beyond what was expected. I would definitely recommend this location and would stay here again if the occasion arises.
5 on May 30, 2011
We very much enjoyed our two night stay!!! The property was beautiful, the breakfasts were to die for, and the owners were so very helpful with suggestions and directions! We wouldn't hesitate to stay again and would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a quality experience in the Woodinville / Redmond area! Rhonda and Mark

We spent three wonderful nights at Meritage Meadows. It is the perfect place to stay when visiting the Seattle area as it has very easy access to Highway 520 and is a short drive to downtown (non-rush hour times). The setting is very tranquil as the inn is located on 14 wooded acres with beautiful flowering bushes. The innkeepers, Bob and Karen, provide outstanding and warm hospitality. They recommended restaurants which were excellent and provided insight into local attractions. Our room was spacious, quiet and very comfortable. We will definitely stay at this inn again when in the Seattle area.
5 on May 09, 2011
The Inn Keepers Bob & Karen make this the perfect place to stay when in the Redmond area. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the food is fantastic. If you love wine Bob's knowledge of the local wines is generous and he can guide you to choices to meet your tastes.

My husband and I stayed at Meritage Meadows on our wedding night because it was close to home. This bed & breakfast is an absolutely beautiful place! It also has amazing service & the yummiest food! The owner made breakfast for us and it was outstanding! I think we will be spending our 1st anniversary here. Thank you for a wonder stay!!

My husband and I were attending a wedding in the Redmond area and needed a place to stay. The Meritage Meadows Inn fit the bill exactly. Bob and Karen Spencer were wonderful hosts. They made us feel right at home. Our room was very tastefully decorated and the bed extremely comfortable. The bathroom was large with plush towels and a rack to warm them up. There were even two bathrobes hanging in the closet for our use. There was a coffee maker right outside the room. The inn has lovely grounds, which should get even prettier listening to the Spencer's plans for the inn. Bob and Karen serve a wonderful two course breakfast every morning. The scones are fabulous! Bob is also very knowledgeable about wines and can make recommendations as to which wineries to visit in the Woodinville area. We would highly recommend this Inn.

We had a fantastic stay at Meritage Meadows Inn. The owners had extensive knowledge about the local wineries and referred us to several places in the area. We will be returning!

My daughter and I went on a getaway weekend and Meritage Meadows Inn made it very special! It was close so we didn't spend time driving, but it felt like a vacation. Bob and Karen were very gracious and helpful with places to have a great meal. The breakfast was delicious with each morning having a different menu. This is a definite place to visit again!

I needed a place to stay while visiting my uncle in a nursing home. I found this lovely B & B and decided to give it a try. I thought it seemed like a great price for what the pictures portrayed. Well, I was so right. It is just beautiful! My room was so perfect, the bathroom floor was even warmed, as well as the towells on the rack! (We don't get that in Tucson!) Such a comfortable bed, and the hosts were great. Breakfast was always superb. I enjoyed my stay tremendously!

We absolutely LOVED our five night stay at the Meritage Meadows Inn. Bob and Karen, the innkeepers, were wonderful and made you feel like family. I cannot rave enough about our stay. The breakfasts they cooked in the mornings were better than we have had in the finest of restaurants, and were cooked with perfection, offered with a different home-made scone, bread or muffin, along with juices, including the most amazing apple cider from a place down the road with a 100-year old cider press. Amazing folks, beautiful place, and an absolute value!

My husband and I are new to BnB's, having stayed in hotels and cruise ships. Our experience with Bob and Karen far exceeded our expectations. We felt like we were guests in their home, not just a customer. Our room far and above exceeded our expectations. We appreciated that the Inn was quiet and restful but still was close to Seattle where we were visiting the next day. We highly recommend Meritage Meadows and will certainly stay with Bob and Karen again, perhaps for our third anniversary!

My husband and I spent four nights at Meritage Meadows. The house is privately and beautifully situated deep in the woods, but is actually only a few minutes from Redmond. Our room was very clean, inviting, tastefully decorated, and comfortable, with some luxurious extras, such as heated towel racks and heated tile floors in the very large bathroom. Breakfasts, prepared each morning by Bob, were scrumptious. Karen and Bob were gracious and kind hosts from the moment we arrived to Karen's packing us a breakfast to take along for our very early morning flight home. In addition to the guests' bedrooms, the house has numerous other rooms and nooks and crannies where guests can relax, read, play games, watch movies, or work out. We were delighted with our stay. Since we travel to the Pacific Northwest several times a year, we will definitely be back.

My husband and I stayed at Meritage Meadows last weekend and had a fabulous time. The room was beautiful and the bathroom very luxurious. What I appreciated was the attention to detail from the welcome basket with wine, chocolate and cheese and fruit to the heated towel racks and fluffy towels. The innkeepers were very friendly but not intrusive. We felt like we had the whole house to ourselves which was not the case but it was very quiet. Watched a movie in the media room and even had popcorn and ice cream.The breakfast the next morning was wonderful. The egg dish and scones were great. Walked around the property a little and thought we would enjoy to return in the summer when it was drier. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get away even if it's not to far from home. It felt like we had gone further away.

This is our second time staying here and my wife and I simply love this place as an escape. We recommend the Red Mountain room as it includes a tub and sauna. The price is great for what you get and the food is incredible. Show up early for the wine tasting, it's alot of fun~
4.2 on February 26, 2011
Karen and Bob are the most gracious and accommodating hosts! The property is beautiful and Bob's breakfast creations were decadent. The daily wine tasting and appetizers were a unique treat. I can't wait until the winery is officially open. Even though we were minutes to town, we felt as if we were far & away. We'll definately be back!

Knowing we might want a "break" during an extended family visit to Redmond, we booked a room at Meritage Meadows. What a delight we found nestled in the woods within a few miles of downtown Redmond! Bob & Karen were superb hosts, the room was nicely decorated and spotlessly clean, the wine-tasting and tour of Bob's wine-making facility was great fun, and the breakfasts were delicious. Meritage Meadows is at the top of our list for a relaxing and enjoyable B&B. If you are searching for accomodations in the Redmond/Bellevue/Kirkland area, "Meritage Meadows" delivers an exceptional B&B experience and is a great value.
5 on December 07, 2010
We chose to stay at the Meritage Meadows Inn because it was in the neighborhood of some properties we were checking out in Redmond and wanted to get a 'feel' for the area. I should preface that we usually aren't crazy about B&B's, prefering the privacy of a hotel instead. That said we were amazed by the warm, welcoming feel of this B&B. The entire inn was exceptionally clean and comfortable, our room was large and inviting, and best of all the proprietors Bob and Karen were so friendly, helpful and fun to talk to. They were more than happy to help us with anything we needed and even made calls to make a personal referral to their realtor after we marveled at their amazing property. Lastly, the breakfast 'house specialty,' "Eggs Meritage" was incredible! Bob should open the place up just for breakfast! We will definitely be staying with them again when we are back in the area.

Karen & Bob are perfect hosts that make the stay such a relaxing and fun experience. The accomodations and the atmosphere were just perfect for a weekend away from home. So secluded and yet so close to fine dining, great wine tasting, etc ... a definite repeat visit is in store for us.
4.6 on November 14, 2010
Bob and Karen made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. They are very accommodating innkeepers. Their home is beautiful and very relaxing. We always looked forward to our return at the end of each day. They know the area well and assisted us in planning our day trips. Breakfast was always spectacular and they love feedback on their culinary creations. Bob is a winemaker and offers a tasting each evening. It was so enjoyable to sit and talk with he and Karen while sipping wine on those evenings when we were available. We are returning to the area next year and would not even think of staying anywhere else!

This is definitely one of the most best B&Bs we’ve ever stayed in – Bob and Karen, the innkeepers, are gracious and accommodating hosts and seem to have thought of everything to make a stay here pleasant and enjoyable. The breakfasts are fantastic. The setting is beautiful – off the main road and surrounded by beautiful trees. Our room – the Walla Walla – was spacious and comfortable and would be perfect for a business traveler. In addition to desk space, a couch and a reading nook, there’s a table with chairs, fridge, sink, microwave and dishes. We loved our stay here and hope to return.

Our experience began on a high note when we were welcomed by our hosts, Bob Karen, and were shown our room, the Red Mountain Room, complete with a sauna, soaking tub, and beautiful shower in the huge bathroom. We were treated to the superb wines produced by Bob during the "cocktail hour" and enjoyed getting to know Bob and Karen. We ended up watching baseball in the TV room, with the big screen and comfy lounge chairs. What a great way to begin our vacation in Seattle. We chose The Meritage because of its proximity to both Seattle and the Woodinville wine area, as well as a short traveling distance to the Cascades and other areas of interest. To our pleasant surprise, Redmond is also a town with many spots we enjoyed; including The Stone House restaurant, Black Raven Brewery, and Malt and Vine, among others. What we came to look forward to each day, though, were the gourmet breakfasts prepared each morning by Bob and Karen. We ended up feeling very much at home during our six-day stay, thanks to the warm hospitality of the Spencers. All in all this was a wonderful experience for us and we can't wait to return

My husband and I spent a M-F in Redmond, exploring the area as a potential place to live when we're through with our military life. We stayed in the Yakima room, and there were no other guests that week. They were very accommodating when it came to food: we tend to need more protein in the morning, so all of the breakfasts featured an egg dish while were there. I thought two of them were so good that I asked for the recipes: The Eggs Meritage and Eggs Florentine. Delish! One of the breakfast highlights for me was watching the area around the bird feeder outside the dining room windows. In addition to birds, there was always a squirrel or two, and sometimes a rabbit, too. It was fun to watch the squirrel and the rabbit interact - something I've never observed before. The wine tastings were a pre-dinner treat for us, served with cheese and crackers, fruit, and chocolate. We truly appreciated learning more about wines, as we enjoy it, but aren't passionate connoisseurs, so don't have tons on wine-knowledge. The best wines were the ones Bob makes himself! The room itself was comfortable, with two types of pillows available to us. The heated floor in the bathroom was really nice. I also enjoyed the space above the entry way, which had a large window overlooking the greenery in front of the house (where the bird feeder is). It was a pleasant spot for reading, bible study, or conversation with your partner. My only 'complaint' was that the shower head in our bathroom sprayed such a wide pattern that it was difficult for me to shower efficiently. We brought this up to Bob and Karen, and they said that's something they hadn't heard before or considered, and is really easy to fix, so I would think they are probably going to change it. They appreciated the useful feedback. We plan on returning some day, we really enjoyed our stay.

Wished we could have stayed longer at Meritage Meadows.. the lovely home in an idyllic setting was a wonderful end to our National Parks vacation; very relaxing and comfortable with gracious hosts Bob and Karen. Our room was exceptional...wonderful bed and spacious bathroom, tasteful and comfortably elegant. Quick and easy commute to Seattle...business and pleasure travelers should check it out! If I lived in the area, I'd also love to plan a scrapbook retreat here. Meritage Meadows will be high on our list of places to re-visit.

Tucked back in the woods, Meritage Meadows is quiet and restful. We took time to read and play cards and just talk and connect. The bed was super comfy and the linens were super soft. Wine tasting in the evening was fun and the conversation was great. Breakfast was delicious both days.

The setting was beautiful and Bob's breakfasts were wonderful. The rooms and general decor were delightful and the staff was so helpful with directions and suggestions about things to see and do. All in all it was one of our best experiences ever.

Our three days were enjoyable, wonderfully relaxing and a great jump off point when we wanted to leave the property for sightseeing, dining and checking out nearby wineries. Bob and Karen are marvelous hosts and very helpful to us as out-of-staters. Our highest recommendation!

The Inn is furnished with wonderful antique furniture and decorated beautifully. The hosts were very gracious and helpful. It is a very clean Inn with a lot of attention to detail. It has all the extras like a large bathroom with a towel warmer, comfortable bed with nice linens, ect. I would recommend this Inn to my friends.

We came over to Meritage Meadows from Seattle to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary and to attend a festival at Marymoor Park. My wife and I loved the tranquility and quiet of the well kept grounds, the close proximity to Redmond (only a couple miles) and the outstanding service provided by Bob and Karen. They really wen't out of there way to make us feel at home.
4.6 on August 21, 2010
What a jewel! This place is just minutes away from Redmond, but it feels like you're tucked away in a secluded spot. In just one night, we were able to relax and get away from our busy lives. That was made possible because of (1) Karen & Bob's hospitality; (2) A very comfortable bed; (3) Spacious grounds; (4) tastefully appointed rooms; and, last but not least, (5) really good wine.
5 on August 03, 2010
From pulling up at the front door, and being met by the proprietors Bob and Karen, to parting the next morning after a wonderful breakfast, it was all great! After we got settled, their was a wine tasting with them in one of their sitting rooms, during which Bob made a dinner reservation for us at a nearby restaurant they'd suggested...it was excellent! The next morning, Bob and Karen gave us an overview of the wine makers in the area, and helped us craft a tour that fit our available time line. We loved it all. My fiance and I, whole heartedly recommend the Meritage Meadows B&B for a relaxing, quality get away.

• Just east of Seattle and Bellevue into secluded hills above Redmond, Meritage Meadows Inn offers a refreshing pause in vacation or business trip activities, a local escape from routine or celebratory treats. I stayed for two nights May in the Yakima Room as a short personal retreat. Karen and Bob Spencer’s gracious greetings and orientation immediately gentled my pace along with the comfortable aesthetics of the house and furnishings. My room’s jetted corner tub and the heated floor and towel rack were appreciated. The breakfasts, cookies and bread on the snack table were wonderful. There are plenty of spaces to socialize with others or keep to yourself. With wireless connections, the media room and exercise rooms downstairs, and a wide selection of books in the library, wine tasting hour, acres of meadows and woods, it requires effort to venture back out. However, Bob and Karen are also ready to help their guests enjoy the larger pictures of the area. I certainly recommend this Inn to my family and friends and may come up missing from home soon for another respite. There are other confortable bedrooms and more morning repasts to test out

We had a great stay at this B&B. It's close to down town Redmond yet feels tucked into the woods. The rooms are very clean and well decorated, with a great feeling of privacy. There are a number of spots to get comfortable with a book in the downstairs area and the grounds are spacious enough to get a decent walk in. We were also able to get in a hike and a movie at the gold pass cinema, all with very short drives. Wine tasting in the evenings was fun and shouldn't be missed. We will definitely be coming back.

My husband and I recently spent our honeymoon in the Red Mountain room and it was outstanding! We loved the room and the spa bathroom was amazing. Bob and Karen are extremely kind and make one hell of a breakfast! We look forward to spending our anniversary there in the near future.

We had a most relaxing and restful time at Meritage Meadows Inn. The spa bathroom (Red Mountain room) was so luxurious, and the bed so comfortable, that we felt like we were in the lap of luxury. Yet, we were so close to Seattle (and the wine tasting route!) that "getting there" took no time at all. We highly recommend staying at Meritage Meadows Inn.

My boyfriend and I had the wonderful experience of staying at Meritage Meadows this May. We were just looking for a romantic weekend to "get away" and that is exactly what we got! After arriving and getting settled, our hosts treated us to delicious snacks and a wine tasting. I cannot recall exactly what the white wine I tried was, but it was made by our host and his partners and was amazing! The Inn is newly remodeled and so clean and comfortable! Our room had a private mini Jacuzzi tub and a cedar sauna, which was so fun and romantic!! We felt it was a wonderful combination of hospitality and peaceful surroundings. Breakfast in the morning was SO delicious! We will definitely be returning soon!
