Wonderful stay

The hostess upgraded us to the chefs cottage which is a small apartment. Very private and secure. Delighted with stay. Also easy access to business ventures we planned.

I was transported out of the fast paced life of our Northwest Urban Living.. To leave after meals, classes, and charming nights at the Inn seemed madness. On my return home I told my adult children about my grand experience and they solved my Christmas Present List decisions for that year. I sent them and there best friends to experience it themselves, while babysitting the four local grandkids overnight. They in turn have encouraged others and hoping I'll get in a rut and send them again. They likewise were charmed by Nancy and her ability to provide great service and privacy while never bustling to disturb the blessed calm.

Wonderful Retreat

The Auberge de Seattle was a very nice retreat. The morning pastries were delicious and the orange wine was delectable!

Charming French Country Bed & Breakfast

My husband and I just came back from an amazing two night stay at Auberge de Seattle. Breakfast croissants delivered to our room each morning were outstanding. Our cooking class was great fun learning new techniques and visiting with the other guests. The meal we cooked was excellent; along with the dinner conversations and new friends we met. The evening was very delightful!

Innkeeper Response
