Shafer Baillie Mansion is absolutely stunning. On a gorgeous street in a beautiful part of Seattle an easy 30-40 minute walk to/from Pike Place Market. Glen and Brenda made us feel so welcome, two wonderfully warm people perfectly suited as innkeepers. Our room was gorgeous, immaculate. Both the bed and sofa bed were very comfortable to sleep on. The included... More

We stayed at the Shafer Baillie Mansion on the basis of its reviews on Tripadvisor and it certainly lived up to expectations in every way. Located in wonderful Capitol Hill area, the property is stunning, but despite the proliferation of beautiful furniture and decoration, it retains that homely feel. Certainly, I did not feel uncomfortable padding downstairs in my socks... More

We enjoyed four nights at the lovely, renovated Shafer Baillie Mansion and felt right at home lounging on the red velvet furniture by the end of our stay. In the desirable Capitol Hill area of Seattle, this B&B is within walking distance of Volunteer Park with its Conservatory and Asian Art Museum. Every morning the long table in the dining... More

What a fantastic surprise! This Shafer Baillie Mansion is amazing! A beautiful mansion, which has been superbly maintained. The rooms are beautiful and the shared spaces are large, with quality decor, fitting a mansion. The other joy in staying at the Shafer Baillie is the staff. Glen and Brenda were delightful, and helpful to the extreme. Glen met us and... More

Shafer-Baillie was the master of mansions! Really nice hosts (Glen, Brenda, Ana), great breakfast (granola, greek yogurt, egg straccia, smoked salmon, HB eggs, parma ham, and so much more) , large rooms (updated baths/AC/flat screen TV/fast WiFi), and a location that can't be beat (walk to Broadway, downtown, 15th, 12th). As the Governator said "I'll be back!"

Easy street parking. Uber to downtown for $7. Mansion. Nice breakfast. Older tree filled neighbourhood with park a block away which is perfect for a run. Decent restaurants nearby. Friendly morning host Brenda (we weren't around enough in the afternoon/evening to get to know the other guy) who gave helpful recommendations. We had one of the smaller rooms and it... More

This is an absolutely wonderful place. Only 7 nice, restored bedrooms, a large, beautiful main floor - living room, library, sun room, and dining room - and nice grounds and surroundings. Delicious breakfast. A wonderful host.

ushering you into this dramatic, Pacific Northwest historic register property. The innkeepers (especially Brenda) were enthusiastic, kind, and helpful. This is a perfect location for exploring Volunteer park (a block away) and the dining scene, of which there are many walkable, delicious options. We stayed in the Central Ballroom on the 3rd floor. While the bedding (and pillows!) were luxuriously... More

We just spent 3 nights at the Shafer Baillie Mansion. It was three days of bliss. Brenda is one of the best innkeepers ever. The breakfasts were nicely displayed with little changes every morning, ie, egg casserole, hot fresh berry cobbler that was delish. The mansion is beautifully restored and so very comfortable. Bed and pillows - perfect. Close walking... More

We were met by the owner, a beautiful woman called Anna who was helpful and kind throughout our stay.
