Best B and B!!

Tom and Linda have quite an amazing place here. It was such an enjoyable stay. Their place is near the airport but easily accessible to all of Seattle. The rooms were comfy and nice. The bathroom was recently renovated and was great. The outdoor hot tub was awesome. The best thing of all was Linda's cooking. She's amazing and such a great host. It was like being at your own mom's home. Truly a great place to stay. Breakfast was amazing and her cookies are fantastic!! Don't pass up an opportunity to stay here. You won't regret it.

Very generous accommodation with use of the lounge, garden and hot tub. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and tidy. Jill and David were standing in whilst owners were away. They did a terrific job, informing us on places to visit, transport, eating out, etc. We had an early excursion so we were given a breakfast box to take with us. We had a great stay, thank you. Margaret and Guy.

The hot tub was the on line draw for me .Everything was lovely and so well organized. The gardens were so refreshing; long beds of maidenhair ferns,fox gloves and several varieties of roses .The birds live it here .

Sister Seattle Trip

5 on May 07, 2017

For our week long visit to Seattle, we opted to stay at The Guest House instead of a Hyatt property in downtown Seattle. So pleased that we did because this bed and breakfast exceeded our expectations in every way! It's very unique because when you book it, you are the only guests. Our inn keepers tended to our every need and Linda even served as our personal concierge by offering suggestions, advice and directions. They take pride in their property and genuinely care about making your stay enjoyable. We had delicious breakfasts each morning and returned from our outings to find sweet treats each evening. The beds were comfortable and the sheets & towels were wonderfully soft. It was the perfect accommodation for our sister trip to Seattle.

Ohio ranks this b & b a five!

Superb B&B Experience!

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!

Great place to start a Washington trip

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!

Oasis within short distance from downtown Seattle

4.0 on July 31, 2016

Linda and Tom's Guesthouse is a wonderful oasis to begin and end hectic days visiting Seattle. Mornings begin with delicious and artful breakfast amidst their beautiful home and spectacular gardens. Amidst those gardens is a lovely hot tub that adds to the de-stressing. It is peaceful. Linda and Tom have elevated inn keeping to an art form and have mastered the balance of helpfulness with discretion.
