An absolutely stunning B&B, with comfortable rooms, amazing common areas, great breakfasts, and really friendly hosts. Near to Volunteer Park and the Asian Art Museum, which has a great view down to the Space Needle. I found free on-street parking, and accidentally left a sweater there, - they mailed it back to me, gratis. There's a combo lock on the...

This was such a relaxing, luxurious yet "homey" environment, with the friendliest innkeeper one could ask for. A big, gorgeous old mansion in a lovely neighborhood, with plenty of common space to enjoy in the downstairs rooms. The bed was comfortable, and the room clean and more modern than expected in an old style home. I could hardly ever compliment...

So much better than a hotel! We stayed in the gorgeous Capital Hill room on the second floor. It was quiet, spacious and nicely furnished. Meticulous housekeeping, modern, private bathrooms, luxurious linens. The innkeeper and owner treated us with 5-star hospitality. It was a lovely experience. I highly recommend this B&B for its high standards and good value--free (street) parking,...

My husband and I stayed at the Shafer Baillie Mansion recently. The food was excellent! The hosts were friendly and helpful and willing to tell us the history of the mansion and the area. The building was beautifully renovated and maintained and full of historical interest and era appropriate furnishings.

We stayed here for 5 nights recently during a vacation visit to Seattle. I booked the S-B based on the great TA reviews, and we were not disappointed at all. Capitol Hill is a nice residential area, so you really feel like you are a local. You are within walking distance from Volunteers Park. Brenda and Ana are gracious hosts....

First, as title suggests, I have not stayed in any other B&B in Seattle. But when I return, I plan on returning here. Great place. Big old mansion that was built around 1910 and converted to a B&B by current owners. Wonderful rooms. Very quiet street. We had a car and found ample parking. Breakfast a real treat, with freshly...

In early October, 2016 we spent 3 nights at Shafer Baillie Mansion. Right from the greeting by Brenda to guided tour of the facility you are left with a great first impression and it doesn't end there.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay here very much.
