Hidden gem

5 on April 06, 2017

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

One of the best

5 on March 04, 2017

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

Fantastic!

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.

Innkeeper Response
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!

Meditative & serene setting

4.8 on November 20, 2016

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

Just Wonderful

5 on October 21, 2016

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

Very gracious hosts, wonderful experience!

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.


Beautiful peacful location near wineries

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.


Good Find!

Relaxing and Peaceful

5 on July 25, 2016

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.


Excellent

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.
