We stayed for 6 nights and can't begin to say enough about this place. Right near everything but in a quiet restful location. The rooms are comfortable and the atmosphere is relaxing. Thanks to Brenda, Glenn and Anna who make everything come off seamlessly. We highly recommend staying here on your next visit to the Seattle area!

We just got back from a four night stay at Shafer Baillie Mansion Seattle. It was all we expected and more. Breakfast offered many delicious options. The room was lovely. It was in a great location. Parking is free. It was hot (in the 90s) but the mansion stayed cool with many windows and high ceilings.

Just returned from Seattle today after a five night stay at the SB Mansion. What a terrific b&b. The house is exceptionally beautiful. The rooms had plenty of space and are so pretty (we looked in other rooms too!). The location is in a wonderful neighborhood with a park at one end. Be sure to stroll the area. We liked... More

My wife and I recently spent three nights at the Shafer Baillie Mansion. It is a fine old mansion converted to a bed and breakfast giving you the feel of a time gone by. We stayed in the Southwest Ballroom on the upper floor. This room was quite large with a very comfortable king size bed. There is closet space... More

The location is just far enough to downtown and close to Capitol Hill. The atmosphere is elegant and soothing with Brenda and Glenn's hospitality. The amenities are high quality. If you're looking for a spa or fast paced resort atmosphere you might consider another option.

This B&B is beautiful. The rooms were not large but very comfortable and cozy. The only slight disappointment was that there is not a cooked breakfast, just a buffet spread. It's away from the downtown which we found to be a plus. There is a park nearby and plenty of restaurants within walking distance. It is well worth a stay.

We stayed at the Shafer Baillie Mansion for five days during an important family event. We found every Mansion space beautifully appointed and lovingly restored. We were impressed by the attention to period details. Large, colorful rhododendrons bloomed in the manicured garden. The first floor spaces were airy and gracious. Breakfasts were varied, nicely prepared and locally sourced. The large,... More

Thanks so much for your review! We bought the baby grand piano when we lived in Kansas City. It was painted a dark brown color and didn't look like much, but our piano restorer discovered the beautiful tiger-stripe mahogany under the paint. Years later when we had returned to Seattle and bought the Mansion, we were thrilled to find it... More

Schafer Baillie Mansion is a grand historic mansion, lovingly restored and ideally situated in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. The best restaurants in Seattle are an easy walk and beautiful Volunteer Park is a block away. Brenda and Glenn are the most gracious hosts and offer guests a local's perspective on food, sights directions, everything you need! The beds are more... More

Thanks so much for your kind words. Brenda and Glenn are treasures indeed. And the antique "ribcage" shower in the Master Suite-- has to be seen to be believed! There is a photo of it on the Master Suite page of our website, and at least one of the guest-posted photos here on TripAdvisor shows it as well. When we... More

Lovely old mansion in Capitol Hill, close to downtown and for us, close to the regatta our daughter was rowing in, on Opening Day. We stayed in the master suite and there were twin beds for our other two teenage children in the back room. The shower was an experience; a turn of the century spa shower and has to... More
