We've been to the Shaffer Baille on numerous occasions over the years. Its always the same welcoming slice of turn of the last century charm. The woman who has run it forever - Brenda, is a delight! Always warm and full of good ideas of what to do, see and eat while in Seattle. It wouldn't be a trip to... More

What a gorgeous property. Our hosts were so friendly and made sure we knew how to get into the place since we were arriving quite late. I'm a sucker for restored historic mansions, and this B&B did not disappoint. I felt transported back in time. Every detail of this house was stunning. Our room left nothing to be desired (except...

Our family's first visit to the Pacific Northwest began with a stay at the Schafer Baillie Mansion and there could not have been a better welcome to this part of the country. The mansion was exquisite, service impeccable and experience best described as Downton Abbey'esque. Brenda and Glen took care of us like Mrs. Hughes and Mr. Carson and we... More

This lovely and comfortable B&B is in a Tudor mansion, with beautiful rooms, lovingly restored to its original splendor. Lot's of public rooms to be comfortable in and the bedrooms are fantastic. The breakfast is excellent and the area super convenient to a lot of things. Have a great time and enjoy your stay. It's quiet, and probably best for... More

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.

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 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.
