New Years Eve Romance

5 on January 17, 2017

Loved, loved, loved, the Chittenden House Bed and Breakfast. Marica was the host of host. The decorations and rooms where breath taking. We stayed in the Jungle room, believe me when I say that you will not have any issues falling asleep in the bed, the private bath was spacious and the claw foot bathtub set the mood. Breakfast was to die for! Very, very tasty, with an elegant setting. I am looking forward to my next stay at the Chittenden House Bed and Breakfast.

Fabulous experience

Marcia was a gracious hostess. Breakfast met dietary requirements and was excellent. Wonderful experience. We will be back next time we need to stay in West Seattle.

Lovely Stay.

Weather was very cold, but the house was cozy, warm and cheerful. The food was excellent with many special touches. My daughter and I had a lovely stay. We will return and recommend Chittenden to our friends and family.

A delicious and comfortable stay!

The home was warm and inviting with a truly gourmet breakfast! I will stay there every time I'm in Seattle. Far better than an air B&b!

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.

Eclectic and Homey

Good value for a B&B so close to downtown Seattle. Friendly and homey! Like a stay with your Great Aunt!

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.
