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

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.

Great bed and breakfast!

Breakfast was amazing and really delicious. It was state of the art! Bathroom was very clean and perfect and the beds as well. All the rooms had beautiful flowers from the garden. Rie from Tokyo

Exceded Expectations

Being our first time staying at a B&B I didn't know what really to expect. It was a great stay and we were well taken care of ! They've set the bar high for others to live up to now.

Great stay outside seattle

Friendly hosts, relaxing atmosphere, with a beautiful back flower garden retreat. Nice night sleep and wonderful full breakfast.

A Wonderful 1st!

As this was my first BnB experience, I relied upon my friends comparison. She said over and over again how well I'd done in choosing. She also said that it is the best Bed and Breakfast she had the pleasure of going to, and that I would be hard pressed to find better! I wholeheartedly believe her!! Tom and Linda were exceptional in welcoming, and making us feel like we "belonged". Thank you for that!

The big 3-0

Linda and Tom went above and beyond any expectation I may have had, to make special my daughters late night arrival from NYC on her 30th birthday! They allowed me to decorate, but when we arrived from Sea Tac they improved upon my decor and added an amazing cake! Breakfast was not your normal B&B quick meal. This was a gourmet delight, beautifully prepared and happily consumed. Durn good for a "regular" house in a residential neighborhood on a busy road near a major airport, The Guest House is one of the best. Comfy linens. Personalized service. Excellent food. Nice people. Good hot tub. What else could there be? Thank you
