A great B & B to stay in, if you are in the Seattle Area. The Host/Owner was a great conversationalist and it was lovely to be in her presence. The Breakfast served was simply the best. I will definitely stay there again, if in the Seattle area.

We had a very nice stay once again making it our second. Breakfast was an experience to remember & Marty was a delight in conversation. Emma is a very sweet hostess making sure all your needs met. Marcia, the owner, is a long time resident of the Seattle area. She know her stuff well. Misha added to the fun too. We love pups. Our Suite downstairs was very comfortable. Thank you e'vryone.

The ratings would not allow selecting Outstanding that was my choice. Comfortable and roomy suite of rooms that was perfect for us as weary sightseers. Breakfast and the table were no less than Michelin 2 stars. All that was missing was the aloof French waiter. Kitchen staff (Marty) were great to chat with. I will stay again given the opportunity.

Our son on way to Korea, Captain in U.S. Army, loved their stay here! They whispered because they didn't want to disturb the innkeepers. Linens, bath were all top of line. Our son was just going to have coffee, but had to wake his wife for the fabulous breakfast! Even had a carry out breakfast for the early flight departure morning! Marcia runs a 5 star B&B! Let's just tell our favorite friends about this only.

This is a great small B&B on quiet West Seattle street only a few blocks from bus stop and restaurants. The breakfasts were excellent cooked by owner Marcia on the weekends and her mother Marjorie during the week. The home has great sitting areas with and without TV in a lovely setting. The hosts are very friendly and and provide a great experience.

My husband and I enjoyed our 4 day stay at Chittenden House. Our bedroom was spacious and the queen size bed was comfortable. We shared the bathroom which did not cause any problem. The breakfast was delicious with salmon egg quiche and fruit. Our only warning is the owner does have a dog which we found fun to play with. But, if you do not like dogs then be forewarned. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and about 1/2 mile from the water and California Street's businesses. We walked to the to both locations. We used Bed and Breakfast Guild gift certificate to pay for our stay without any problems. I recommend Chittenden House and plan to stay there for future visits.

I drove to Seattle from BC to be with family during the one of the Seahawks games. It was a home game, & the weather was stormy. What a nice comfy place to stay, especially when it was stormy outside! I enjoyed a good sleep, it was quiet and very relaxing. Waking up to a yummy cup of coffee and breakfast was a treat!

The Bed & Breakfast we stay at was Chittenden Bed & Breakfast in Seattle. We were there starting Sept 25 and left Monday, Sept 30. We were in town for our daughter's wedding & she had supplied us with the names of several different B&Bs. We chose Chittenden because it was less than 2 blocks from her house in West Seattle. We were not disappointed. The owners were friendly, the room was clean and nice, the breakfasts were excellent. The next time we visit our daughter in Seattle we will likely stay there again.

I was a little leery about booking our stay here after reading other reviews, but found it to be perfectly adequate for our needs. A 5 star hotel it's not, but our room was clean and comfortable, the owner was friendly, and it's nicely located for exploring West Seattle. The downstairs room could easily accommodate a small family or two couples, and we found it to be a fair value for the area.

Perfect location, quiet and great service. Breakfast was excellent with fresh strawberries from the backyard and coconut infused fluffy waffles. Home is well maintained with all details of '20s architecture. We will be back again.

To describe it in one word the chittenden house was very charming. The inn keeper even lets their guests take out up to 2 bicycles to stroll around town. The park(s) were nearby and boast great views of the bay. There is a guests' refrigerator filled partially with complimentary bottles of water, which was great for storing leftovers from lunch we brought with us that we ate for dinner. If we had stayed there longer (we only stayed for 1 night) I would have loved to have had the opportunity to eat on the balcony of the also very charming backyard. We stayed in the Castle Room, which was in sum fulfilled my inner childlike fantasy. Another plus were the bathrobes (I love it when B&B's have bathrobes for you to use even though I also tend to travel with my own for when there aren't any). As most bed and breakfasts cater to an occupancy of 2 people per room unless it was a premium priced cottage or suite, it was nice to be able to have 3 people be accommodated (via an extra pullout bed) since we were traveling with a friend. I absolutely have no complaints. I did rate the dining (the breakfast) a bit lower just because I've had better breakfasts at other B&B's but it was still a good basic breakfast (fruit + toast + eggs + tea or juice).

Very convenient location for West Seattle activities. Parking available. House smelled of smoking. Bathroom on a different floor was inconvenient, especially during the night. I would have appreciated information before my arrival, such as directions, breakfast arrangements, etc.
3.2 on May 18, 2012
This B and B is a beautiful,.old, spacious home and perfectly comfortable. However we We found the decoration very cluttered with too many rather odd objects that were not my taste at all. Our hostesses were very pleasant and helpful but we found it a bit odd that they both stayed in the dining room watching us while we had our breakfast which meant we had to talk with them which we found a bit intrusive and awkward.
3.2 on January 03, 2012
Very large washroom, somewhat crowded bedroom. Lots of ornaments everywhere - though it was Christmas. Nice toiletries were available, and an effort was made to provide interesting food at breakfast - but not much choice. Overall an okay place to stay but rather expensive. The yard would have been nice in the summer.

We were visiting the Seattle area for only a couple days, and decided to try a local B&B. The house is located on a quiet street, and is relatively easy to find. Our room was a little small, but certainly adequate for the limited time we spent there. The hospitality was great, and the breakfasts were well-prepared. Nothing really extraordionary about this B&B, but it was a pleasant stay overall.

Stayed in the Evergreen suite, surprised and impressed at what we got (review applies to this suite, other rooms in the house are regular B&B sized): two full sized bedrooms with very comfy beds, bath, large living room, and spotless full kitchen; basically a two bedroom apartment, extremely clean and an amazing value for what we got. Whole house is ornate with knickknacks and curios from all over. Had use of the large yard and a pretty gazebo though we didn't use it. Marcia and her mother were very nice and served a full hearty breakfast of italian style egg strata prepared fresh, homemade bread or cake just made, and homemade jams and compotes, and they were all fantastic. They let us do a load of laundry while we were there, which we appreciated. We cooked up some leftovers in the kitchen one night and had a nice sit-down dinner of our own with real plates, which we never expected to do in a B&B. I felt like I was at a B&B and yet as comfortable as if I were in my own home. Only negative was our seventeen year old son didn't like the decor but even he had to admit that it was excellent in all other respects. House is nice Craftsman in typical West Seattle neighborhood; not too close to downtown; about 20 minutes drive with average traffic. Had a wonderful stay.
3.4 on August 08, 2011
Loved the decor. Obviously a lot of time and care has been taken to give this B&B a sense of the classic Victorian era. The innkeepers were friendly and willing to spend the extra time giving us tourist tips to make the most of our Seattle vacation in both experience and value. One caveat about staying here - If you are not a dog fan, this may not be the place for you as they have two dogs on the premises. We are dog lovers, so that was not an issue, but those who have a fear of dogs or battle dander allergies, it may make your stay less comfortable.

I've stayed at Chittenden House twice, once alone in the Castle Room and once with my family in the Evergreen Room. On both occasions, the minute I arrived I felt welcome and comfortable. The rooms are clean, pleasant, and homey. The innkeepers are wonderfully accommodating, even finding gluten-free options for us for breakfast. The house is located in a beautiful neighborhood, about a 15-minute walk (with some hills) from the commercial district of West Seattle. My family and I loved our stay(s) and would return in a heartbeat!

We had never stayed at a B & B so we were not sure what to expect. Much to our surprise we found Chittenden House to be a lovely clean home in a really nice neighbourhood. Marcia and Marjorie greeted us with open arms to a lovely decorated home and made us feel comfortable immediately. We had a wedding to attend and Marcia was very accomodating letting us arrive early to get ready. The cleanliness of the home was outstanding and the breakfast in the morning was magnificent! Marcia is an amazing cook! I would recommend the Chittenden House Bed and Breakfast to anyone who is travelling to the Seattle area. Cleanliness and hospitality are always on the top of most travellers lists and this B & B offers that and more! Thank you Marcia and Marjorie for a wonderful stay! We would definitely book again!

No welcome or name introduction upon arrival; no lock on the "private" bathroom door; no toiletries; our "private" bath shared by "mystery" guests at least 3 times during the night; no A/C as advertised in website; this B&B is about website marketing but falls way short on delivering!
Well, this is certainly a lot to respond to... I really wish that people would tell me if they are unsatified instead of responding this way. That said, let me respond to the allegations. No lock on bathroom - untrue. There is a lock on the bathroom, it is one of those flip lock types that work only when you are inside the room. Most people miss it's presence, but it is there. No greeting. Not sure what happened here. It's just myself and my Mom who are here. If we are busy or distracted, I suppose it could happen. More likely, they arrived late and I had to leave a key in an envolope on the front door with instructions on how to get to the room. I sometimes have to do this if people arrive late. I don't have a 24 hour staff and I do work another job, so I have to get to bed a a reasonable hour. No amenities in bath. Also untrue. I provide specially made soaps for the the business, shampoo, conditioner, even lotion. Also provided are loads of extra towels and and blankets. a hair dryer and robes. Not sure where this comment came from. Mystery guest using bath. Don't know what happened here. It could be that whoever was in the room next door cheated and used the bath during the night. All rooms have private baths, but the one for the Castle room is on the main floor and you must go downstairs to use it. That's a long way to go during the night, so people have been known to use the one upstairs. No AC - I do provide AC units in the upstairs rooms, but this is a seasonal thing. I remove them at the end of the season. This guest arrived in September, after the units had been removed for the season. The weather is too cold and rainy around here to leave the window units in over the winter months and there is no need for them during that time anyway.
2.6 on August 22, 2009
Great location for West Seattle and Seattle sites, but the overall experience was disappointing. The owners were not very welcoming upon arrival and during breakfast hovered about and lacked a sense of interest in the guests. The overall feel of the place was like staying at a friend's or relative's-okay but nothing special. There is plenty of space to sit outside and a lovely yard. Breakfasts were basic fare: eggs, meat, pancakes, sometimes muffins. The homemade jams and syrups were great. Coffee was lousy--which for Seattle stinks. We ended up going to a local coffee shop every morning after breakfast for real coffee. If you are looking for a basic place to stay, no upscale decorating, towels, or meals, this will be fine.

The good points: Homemade jam, good location, handcrafted soap, helpful and friendly innkeepers The bad: Room smelled strongly of bird food, and there was dust and hair over everything, the least clean B&B we've ever stayed in, greeted by barking, jumping dog. We are dog lovers, but what if someone were not? There was no mention that we could find on the website about the dogs which had free rein of the house. Fine for some, but not for someone with allergic asthma. We thought that getting a B&B from this website guaranteed a certain level of quality (cleanliness, for example), but we were clearly mistaken. There were other people at the B&B who appeared more satisfied than we were, but for us, it was not what we expect when we pay to stay in someone's home.
