I am writing because I promised the owner I would do so, partially to modulate some of the really harsh reviews this property has received. Marcia, the owner, seems to have made an effort to respond to previous reviews... in detailed written responses to those reviews and in her job as host and cook. Unlike most American B&Bs, there has... More

Thanks for getting in touch! While I know that it's been a few months since you and your wife stayed with us, I wanted you to know how much your feedback means to me. I've always been a believer that a hearty breakfast is the best way to start the day, so it's good to know that you enjoyed the... More

OMG. This innkeeper must understand you can't charge $150 a night, and offer fewer amenities than a Motel Six! Mid week, her poor 81 year old mother does all the work, and the mother complains to guests about it!! When choosing on TripAdvisor, existing reviews seemed harsh, from dog haters, so I was moved to try them for one night,... More

We love to visit Seattle and whenever we're here we love to stay with Marcia & Marge at the Chittenden House. Last couple of times we stayed in the Evergreen suite, which is a lovely two-bedroom apartment. There's a private entry and access to a beautiful garden with a large gazebo and a charming cottage with a burbling fountain outside.... More

What a lovely review! Thanks so much for taking the time to write it up a few years ago. It's so nice to know that you not only love our fair city of Seattle, but you've always enjoyed your stay here as well. You're right — the Evergreen Suite is a lovely place to relax and feel at home when... More

This B and B looks great on paper and has well meaning caretakers: a mother and daughter. However, quaint as it looks, it lacks professional cleaning big time. We stayed in the Evergreen suite and at first glance things looks ok until I went in the bathroom and found black hairs all over the tub and long black hairs in... More

I know it's been quite some time since you wrote this, but we're just getting active on Tripadvisor and this kind of feedback is still very important to us. I'm sorry if the cleanliness of the bathroom didn't meet your standards and put a slight damper on your vacation. With two extra years of experience and customer service under our... More

Our experience did not start well when we were greeted by two large barking dogs at the entrance to the B&B. One dog had to be dragged away so we could enter. The B&B was not as clean as you would expect and had dog odors. The manager did not seem to be very warm and inviting. The room was... More

Well, I'm really sorry that these guests were so disappointed. We try really hard to make everyone's stay here, a good one. I must say, that I do have a challenging puppy, who we are working hard to try to make manageable (we've already had two different obedience trainers in to try to help). He's just a little too friendly... More

On a recent vacation, I decided to attend a workshop in Seattle. Chittenden House was close to the location workshop, and the pricing was reasonable, so we booked a night, planning to move on from Seattle the next day. Our room was lovely. It was clean and had a lovely view. There was a little room off our room that... More

I visited this B&B as part of a weekend interlude in Seattle in the midst of a business trip (to Moscow,Idaho, and Lincoln, Nebraska...don't ask!). I was actually visiting a colleague who lives near Alki Point and who values his night time and morning personal space so much that he pays for visitors stays in local lodging. He was the... More
