We found ourselves in need of a room for a last-minute one night stay in the Steilacoom area. We lucked out by getting a room at the Above the Sound B & B! And I do mean lucked out! It was such a lovely place! I had read the reviews here and they were all quite enthusiastic so I felt... More

I will second the recent comment that Bill is the most friendly, accommodating host we have ever had at a property. He went out of his way to make sure that everything was o.k. for us. This place is a great find in Steilacoom--despite the touristy nature of the town, there isn't much of a choice for an overnight stay,... More

What a stay. Just feel I have to add to all the other good reviews. We had the smaller upstairs room but we did get a quick tour of the larger downstairs suite. Highlights: Super friendly hosts. A ferry tour to nearby vashon island recommended by Bill. The breakfast was beautiful. Coffee and scones were terrific. Nice gardens and setting.... More

The couple that own this B&B, Bill & Cindy, live on site. They are two of the nicest people you will ever meet, and they made our stay there exceptional. Bill has perfected the dishes he serves for breakfast. They are very high quality, and are time tested. We were a mere mile or so from Fort Lewis. Our son... More

Delightful is the word that comes to mind about this B&B. Absolutely delightful would better describe the experience. The accomodations are very comfortable and inviting. We stayed in the two bedroom downstairs apartment which is eclectically furnished with memorabilia and reminders of the rustic outdoors. The gardens are charming and the proprietors, Bill and Cindy, are the perfect hosts who... More

What a wonderful place to stay. We stayed in the small apartment downstairs available with a living room, two bedrooms - one, a Master with a kingsize bed and one with two twins. The garden is just lovely, creative and whimsical. A great place to sit with morning coffee. The shower was easy to use - the towels thick. I... More

We would highly recommend this B&B! Guests have their choice of a 2 bedroom suite with a separate living area or a single bedroom with private bath. We chose the latter and it was beautifully decorated. Loved the double sink in the bathroom and the bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was served in a beautiful sun room. It was very... More

Very nice B&B, pleasant and comfy & clean. Decor was soothing, and bed super comfortable. I had the upstairs room adjacent to the sunroom, which is where breakfast is served & which has a beautiful view & where I had access to a small frig as well. Bill & Cindy were so accomodating and Bill seemed to go the extra... More

I was attending my HS reunion and staying for the weekend. What a lovely place to stay. Room was clean and beautifully decorated. I hadn't eaten lunch and was given a snack and drinks. Had my own parking spot, and private entrance. Breakfast was served upstairs in a sun room with nice views of the sound, soft music, delicious coffee... More
