Bacon Mansion

959 Broadway East , Seattle, WA 98102 USA (Show map)


Shields of red & white can be seen on the round stained glass windows as passes through the gates of the Bacon Mansion. Built in 1909 on Seattle's Capitol Hill, this classical Edwardian style Tudor, shows not only the trademark family crest but a fine preservation of original woods, 3000 crystal chandelier, marble fireplace and a treasured library. the main guest house (8,000 sq ft) of living space is divided between 4 levels. A spacious outside patio leads to the historic Carriage House. Besides a delicious breakfast, catered lunches, dinners and receptions are also available. Just a short distance from the Capitol Hill and downtown Seattle commercial districts, you will be sure to enjoy shopping and access to Seattle's many attractions.

A Tampa, Florida Guest Review

Many thanks to Darin and Daryl for their wonderful service. The room was beautiful with comfortable bed and atmosphere. The coffee and peach muffins were to die for. Will stay there on my next trip and recommend to friends and family. Thank you for a most pleasant experience

homey but grand

A fun time! Daryl was very welcoming and helpful, and his raspberry muffins are without a doubt the best of their kind! Congratulations! My lukewarm endorsement of the room applies only to the little Iris room in which we stayed ( the other rooms were fully booked; we saw them, and they are wonderful). I''m six feet two inches, and that doesn't work well when trying to walk around in a room whose roof is a dormer. I had to be kinda careful. Regardless, this is a comfortable place. We felt totally at ease here, wandering about, playing (not very well) the grand piano, lounging in the public rooms. Enjoy!

Great Seattle Location

If you want to stay outside of the downtown core, and enjoy exploring smaller & unique communities, the Bacon Mansion is worth considering. Just blocks from some great restaurants and within walking distance of interesting one-of-a-kind shopping. Bacon Mansion is a beautifully restored home; Daryl is a charming host. Light sleepers should be aware that noises travel, especially plumbing. Inquire about rooms that might be on a "less travelled" route than the Rose Room. J & P, Victoria, BC

the Carriage House at the Bacon Mansion

4.2 on July 22, 2011

We arrived late and our key had been placed under the door mat with the porch light on-just like home! The stay in the carriage house was a great way to start off our visit to Seattle! The coffee in our room was ready to go-just flip the switch! We truly enjoyed the patio...hummingbirds and all!

Home away from Home

Our family of four loved the capitol room. It was large enough to give our family some room to relax. The breakfasts were delicious and just enough to get us on our way each day. Daryl the proprietor was very accomodating and helpful. Even on the days we left early for skiing or fishing, he would make sure something was left in our room to eat before we left. The area is very nice to take a walk or just enjoy the beautifull homes nearby. We like staying north of the city to be able to travel without getting in to all the city traffic. And also not paying for parking each night.

nice stay!

I loved The Bacon Mansion, My room was lovely, the whole house is welcoming, as was Daryl who greeted me. My only complaint would be the breakfast was much less than stated. There was no cereal or juice offered as advertised, and the coffee was much too weak for my liking. I will return, but I'll bring my own one cup coffee maker and something for breakfast. Other than that...big thumbs up!

Innkeeper Response
I appreciate the review but it took me awhile to figure out that the guest sat down at the table for breakfast with their back to the sideboard with all the food and just never realized that it was there. I assumed they just didn't want any as is sometimes the case as they never said anything. I try and make coffee a strength that appeals to the greatest number of guests. I encourage guests to ask if they need anything and will do my best to accommodate them. Look forward to seeing this guest in the future.

Wonderful time!

Stayed in in early August with other out of state friends. Loved the homey atmosphere. Daryl was very accommodating. Went out of his way to check sunset for an even more enjoyable dinner at the needle. Breakfast was healthy and generous. Location was central, and safe. Love Broadway st. We will definitely stay again. Thanks so much!!!!!!!!

Outstanding in all respects!

Wait till you taste the fresh muffins each morning!

Perfection in Seattle

5 on June 21, 2010

This B&B sits on a corner in a charming residential neighborhood in Seattle. A short 2-mile walk into the city. I love walking but there's also a convenient bus two blocks away. Our room was large, clean and the bed was heaven. A free standing tub and shower with robes. What more could one ask for. The owner has traveled extensively so he knows what people need. The house is large with many rooms for relaxation and reading - they even have a piano. Weather permitting, even an cozy outdoor area to sit. Large dining room for breakfast, serving the best warm, homemade muffins in town. For those who only like morning coffee, left on a quaint table outside the rooms - early so one can get out and get going. It's just like being at home.

No "WOW" Factor

3.0 on May 27, 2010

Well-maintained property with beautiful antiques, good location. Breakfast was very disappointing. There wasn't anything that set this B&B apart from others I have stayed in. It didn't 'wow' me.
