We just came back to Baltimore from our Seattle vacation. What a great place to spend a week! The Shafer Baillie Mansion is beautiful, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Kudos to Brenda for the cobbler at breakfast! The rooms all have the most up to date t.v. cable, not that anyone visiting Seattle is going to spend... More

Enjoyed a wonderful stay at the beautiful and charming Shafer Baillie Mansion. Aside from its beauty, Brenda, the b&b innkeeper could not be sweeter. You will love the location (a block away from Volunteer Park - gorgeous park with a lovely museum and conservatory on site). You will love the delicious breakfast. You will love the beautiful accommodations. And you... More

I cannot say enough good things about the Shafer Baillie Mansion B & B. The mansion is beautiful and quiet and in a perfect location. It is close to downtown, but feels a world away. It was also within walking distance to a cute little neighborhood with funky shops and nice restaurants. The inn keepers and owners were all lovely,... More

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.
