I can only echo the comments of previous reviewers. The location in the Capitol Hill area is excellent, with many bars and restaurants within walking distance. The house is tastefully decorated and the choice at breakfast is wonderful. Our rooms were comfortable and clean and quiet. John helpfully suggested places to visit and swimming locations for my husband. I foolishly... More

The only bad part was we couldn't stay longer! The home is gorgeous, the master suite we stayed in was perfectly decorated, the neighborhood is great, and John was a wonderful host. We appreciated the attention to every detail in the house. Definitely stay here if you are looking for something unique and relaxing. We hope to return often!

John was a great host and extremely helpful with directions, suggestions on sites to see. The breakfasts were spectacular not your chain hotel breakfast here! Great location, convenient to local transportation, restaurants, shops, and sites within walking distance. I was a solo female traveler and... More

I love staying at Foxglove Guesthouse and have made it my "home away from home" for years. The Capitol Hill location is perfect. I usually am there on business and love that I can park my car on the street after my work day and walk down to 15th Street that has many great restaurant choices. John is a delightful... More

We stayed for three nights at Foxglove and this proved to be an inspired choice for the start of our trip out to the Rockies. The position of the B&B is perfect for accessing the Capital Hill neighbourhood as well as catching the number 10/11/12 buses downtown. The house is beautifully laid out with period furniture and attention to detail... More

Very pleased with my choice to stay at Foxglove. The house is gorgeous, almost like a museum of ceramics and local art. John is wonderful and does a great job of running the B&B. My room was very clean and comfortable and had all the necessary amenities. Staying at Foxglove really made my first time in Seattle special. I would... More

Loved the Foxglove! A tastefully decorated home with beautiful antiques and treasures - spotlessly clean. The rooms are large with a sitting room bathroom and bedroom - fit for royalty! Privacy, parking, great breakfast and John is a charming host! Would definitely stay there again!

The accommodations are spotlessly clean and John provides a wonderful self serve breakfast each morning in the gorgeous Dining Room.The location is a short bus ride into Downtown Seattle. It is a very beautiful neighbourhood and one feels very comfortable when out... More
