Our family of 4 have just had a 4 night stay at Shafer Baillie and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Beautiful, historic and spacious rooms. Great location on Capitol Hill. A huge delicious breakfast and the most thoughtful & friendly hosts. Brenda is such fun and I will be trying the recipe for her baked fruit toast that she... More

I stayed at the Shafer-Baillie mansion for four wonderful weeks from Monday through Friday in January and February. It was so great to come back to a beautiful mansion at the end of a hard day. My room was perfect, breakfast was wonderful and they did their best to meet my schedule, and Brenda, Anna, and Glen are so friendly... More

My wife and I stayed one night last week. Everything, and I mean everything, was incredible. What a great breakfast and coffee. And speaking of a location! The park is nearby, Broadway, and an easy 4 minute away I-5 North freeway access.

Our expectations were exceeded at this historic B & B in Capitol Hill. Location and ambience are top notch but the crowning glory was the warmth and wit of housekeeper Brenda who made us feel as if we were staying at a dear friend's home. Her skills in the kitchen did not go unnoticed as well. Her breakfasts were substantial... More

What can I say...I never want to stay in a hotel again. This was so lovely and welcoming, and just like home (if you live in a historical mansion!). So many great places to walk to and a short drive to downtown. Location is amazing.

This is a beautiful building in a lovely historic neighborhood right by one of the city's most wonderful parks. Our room was charming and clean, with a historic feel and real character. The place was very quiet and relaxing. We were very well taken care of by Brenda, who made sure we were always comfortable and well fed. The breakfast... More

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights in July 2014. The rooms are very large and quite comfortable. Breakfast is served every morning and they do provide drinks during the day, but you have to ask. The mansion is about a thirty minute walk from downtown Seattle, but there is also public transportation available. We arrived at... More

We're thrilled that you loved the room and breakfast, Eleanor. We're still sorry that your room was locked upon your arrival, though! We know that's not the best way to start a trip. Still, we're glad that you were able to relax and enjoy everything Seattle has to offer. We hope to have you back someday! All the best, Ana... More

We arrived on a rainy afternoon and were warmly greeted at this amazing building. Our room was very nice. Ample amenities and many little places on the main floor to sit and enjoy a book or your iPad. The interior woodwork is stunning. The grounds were beautiful. The innkeepers were very solicitous and prepared a great breakfast. We walked a... More

This was our fourth trip to Shafer-Baillie Mansion so it's fair to say that we have solidified our appreciation of this beautiful and historical bed and breakfast in a quiet part of Capitol Hill. The public areas are quiet and comfortable without feeling like a museum, so you can relax wherever you choose. The bedrooms are spacious and as comfortable... More

Want a location close to downtown and the B&B experience - this is it! From Glenn's warm welcome late in the evening (late plane), assistance with our bags up to the third floor (no elevator), to the comfort in the room, the wonderful breakfasts, and proximity to dining establishments and bus stops, we couldn't have asked for more.
