A View With A Room

14608 136th Avenue E , Puyallup, WA 98374 USA (Show map)


Enjoy life's simple pleasures. Dawdle under giant trees filled with wonderful birds, laugh at the squirrels showing off and hold your breath as deer amble through the yard on their way to the orchard next door. Wander through flowerbeds and delight as hummingbirds stop in midair to introduce themselves. Pick berries or watch butterflies play. Relax in a rocking chair, sip tea, eat cookies, read books, ponder puzzles, admire the view or just listen to the wind in the trees. Nudged between the trees overlooking the Orting Valley, near Seattle and Tacoma and minutes from downtown Puyallup. Great food, great calm, great stories and a fabulous view await your arrival.

One night out

5 on September 01, 2015

My Husband and I have very busy lives ( I own and operate a housekeeping business and care for an elderly woman full time), and he works Monday through Friday 40 or more hours a week. We really needed to get out. We started looking at local B&B's and every review we could find on this place was outstanding. I'm glad we went, The couple running the place were so very nice and the food was awesome. Unfortunately I woke with a very sore throat and so eating was not pleasant but the meal was amazing so I ate as much as I possibly could. We would recommend visiting this wonderful place to all of our friends and anyone looking for a great experience!

70th birthday Gary

We are home now from our stay at the "View with a Room ". Gary had won a gift certificate for it at the fall bazaar. The " View with a Room " is a very charming bed n breakfast. It was more then a room - we had the whole bottom floor of the house. For breakfast we were served peach stuffed french toast, berry and yogurt parfait, and bacon curls. The whole place is decorated with items from generations of their family. They have put it all together in a very warm and inviting way. We had a delightful time. The owners, Lenny and Zoom, are very personable and interesting to talk to. Go and find out for yourself. I bet you'll have a terrific time.

Relaxing and Peaceful

My friend and I rented both rooms and enjoyed wonderful peace and quite, friendly conversation with Lenny over breakfast and show and tell with her after shopping and classes at the Sew Expo. The views are fantastic, the rooms comfortable and food great! She is also a tea conosur like me and I had wonderful blends for breakfast.

Best mistake made

4.6 on February 26, 2014

Got double booked at another B&B and they booked me here at the last minute. Their mistake was to my benefit. This place is wonderful. Very clean, quiet, and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Staff was very friendly and helpful. This place has only 2-units plus a large common area. The units share the bathroom facilities, and the larger room has it's own vanity. Since I was the only one there there was no competition for the facilities. Don't have any previous experience w/B&B's so it was a new adventure. Highly recommend this place.

Great View!

We felt like we were at home!

We will return!!!

Never knew staying at a bed and breakfast can be this good! Lenny is an exceptional cook. Her freshly baked muffins and quiche are just to-die-for. She is pleasant and bubbly and I enjoyed having conversations with her, all day long. She lives upstairs with her husband Zoom and the ground floor is where the guest rooms are. Ground floor is complete with sitting room, dining room, and bath. Large flat screen TV, wi-fi accessible, great view of Mt Rainier, great breakfast,.... What's there not to like?? Will definitely return.

A perfect place to stay

5 on September 24, 2012

A View with Room is that and more. The accomodations were spacious,comfortable and welcoming a perfect place to rest after a busy day. We anticipated breakfast each morning and were always delighted by the menu. Fresh local fruit including yellow raspberrys and blackberrys served as a parfait, Freshly baked muffins,a seafood quiche and maple bacon sticky buns-excellent. Lenny and Zoom are gracious and caring hosts and we intend to visit often whenever we are in the Tacoma Puyallup area.

Close to Family!

Amazing B&B

5 on September 11, 2012

There are no words that can describe our wonderful stay and experience at this B&B. The hosts are friendly and gracious people who you feel very comfortable to be around. The rooms and accomodations are very roomy and clean, The breakfast(s) are always delicious with portions more than anyone can eat. What a wonderful setting to enjoy the evening, stay the night and leave after enjoying the awesome view of Mt Ranier while enjoying your morning breakfast and of course the tasty cup of coffee!
