Wow, this was one of my favorite stays this last year. The 100 year old mansion is amazing and in a neat part of town. It is walking distance to some great restaurants. The owners were great and the amenities were excellent. I hope to come back in town and stay here again.

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....

My family of five stayed here during our visit to Seattle. We generally have trouble finding an accommodation to suit us all together with teenagers. The mansion has a large suite with a sofa bed and extra room with daybeds. It was ideal for us. We enjoyed the easy walk to Volunteer park for more views of Seattle. 15th street...

This is an unbelievable place to stay. The large open areas are simply grand. We stayed there in one of the smaller rooms that was quite larger than the pictures showed. The breakfast was very diverse with typical European fare as well as a hot baked dish. The house is a short commute to downtown, we used Uber for about...

I recently enjoyed a five-night stay at Shafer Baillie Mansion. I have been traveling to Seattle regularly for 35 years and have never enjoyed my accommodation so much.

Discovered this luxurious, quiet B&B a few years ago and we're delighted to find it is just as wonderful as before! A perfect escape from the huge Convention Centre but less than 10 minutes drive away. Cost is much less than the big hotels, and a lovely breakfast included, along with free parking. Breakfast was a buffet with cereals, yogurt,...

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.

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...
