We couldn't say enough about how beautiful this home is -- stunning on every level, and incredibly comfortable. The 'continental' breakfast is actually a small feast. You can tell that much care is taken for the meal, the rooms, and general presentation of the guesthouse. John was a great host, very welcoming and helpful. Street parking was also easy, which...

What a beautiful and well furnished home. I say home because that's how it felt. Warm, friendly, comfortable, spacious and quiet. The bed was great and the living room and dining room were exquisitely furnished with antiques and collectibles. The continental breakfast was worthy of a five star restaurant. Fresh fruit and baked goods from the farmer's market and the... More

We recently stayed three nights while passing through Seattle, as everybody says John is a marvellous host, good advice on everything in Seattle from where I could find Edward Curtis photographs to the best local restaurants and local alternatives to downtown Seattle. The house is beautiful in a quite street close to 15th Avenue, The native American art and decorations... More

My husband and I stayed in Room #4 and enjoyed the airy room, the spacious and modern bathroom, and the cleanliness. The house is beautiful and set in Capitol Hill, a charming and quiet neighborhood with interesting restaurants, etc. a short walk away. Breakfast, while advertised as continental, was abundant ... healthy, lots of choices, and filling. John was an... More

Our second visit to the Foxglove, and just as good as the first. This time we were in a double, en suite room at the back of the house. Slightly smaller than the big room at the front, but still plenty space and overlooking the lovely garden so definitely quieter. John has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable....

Recently stayed 3 nights after an Alaskan cruise. This place is as good as the previous reviews. John made us very welcome and the whole house is very comfortable and beautifully furnished. The breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit and pastries. The bus service to Downtown was frequent and reasonably priced. The local restaurants and bars were good and just... More

We stayed at the Foxglove Guest house for 3 nights. John is the best host ever. His continental breakfasts were "to die for." I have never had a better continental breakfast. My wife and I loved the home feel and rustic charm. John was very helpful to answer our questions about the city, it's hidden gyms and things to see... More

We stayed at the Foxglove Guesthouse for 3 three days before an Alaskan Cruise. John was a great host and very helpful on things to do, directions, and restaurants in the area. The house, located in the Capitol Hill area, is beautiful and tastefully decorated. We stayed in room 3 which overlooked the garden. It had everything we needed and... More

Just returned from a work related trip to Seattle and stayed again at The Foxglove Guesthouse. I stayed in room 4 in the attic this time. Beautifully finished. Breakfast choices excellent. John is a superb host, and great at recommending where to go/see/eat. Looking forward to returning with my other half in a few weeks time!
