Our favorite B&B ever!

5 on September 28, 2017

I can't say enough positive things about our experience here - we wanted for nothing and wouldn't change a thing. Extremely comfortable bedding, beautiful and relaxing décor, great bath amenities, and breakfast that is second to none. We can't wait to visit again!


Best of the best

We stay in lots of B&B/Inns all over the country and Greenlake Guest House is one of our favorites! Julie and Blayne have done everything to ensure we would have a comfortable and memorable experience. We can't wait to get back!


Best of the Best

Needed to go to Seattle for sailboat parts and found Greenlake as an alternative to a downtown hotel. I've stayed in B&B's in Canada, Washington and New Zealand, but none as great as Greenlake. I don't write reviews, but Greenlake deserved one. The house has been remodeled, but kept close to the original style and plans. The craftsman was excellent as was the color choices (my background was architecture). The hostess sat and had wine with us as well as served breakfast and talked with us during. Very pleasant woman. Now we are looking for another reason to visit Seattle. Thank you Blayne and especially Julie.

We have stayed many times at Greenlake Guest House. We always receive a warm welcome. The breakfasts are delicious with lots to choose from. We will return.


Real Pleasure

5 on June 18, 2017

In town for Granddaughters graduation from U of W. Can't tell what a wonderful peaceful stay it was from all that was going on during the weekend. Julie and Blayne helped make it perfect. Wonderful neighborhood, scrumptious breakfasts and extraordinarily nice room made this one of the best places we have ever stayed. If your heading to Seattle this is the place to stay.


Loved it!!

My daughter and I stayed at the Guesthouse for five nights, I can't say enough about it. The place sparkles, the beds are very comfy, the breakfast marvelous, and the cookies yummy. The hosts are friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.


The perfect retreat ...

5 on November 07, 2016

My niece and I stayed for just one night - a nice dinner at Lucia down the street, comfy bath robes, a movie, an amazing nights sleep, and a wonderful breakfast. This was the perfect retreat for a girls night away. One that I think will become a yearly tradition!


Confort et charme dans une ambiance chaleureuse

4.6 on October 01, 2016

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.


Perfect Weekend Getaway

5 on September 08, 2016

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.


Family stay at Greenlake Guest House

5 on August 30, 2016

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.
