Three of my girlfriends and I stayed on Saturday night. The charming daylight basement apt is warm and inviting. Very clean and comfortable. With a gas fireplace and flat screen tv, we listened to 70's music via Comcast and were very cozy on the rainy Seattle night. Breakfast was good. We chatted with Marcia and her Mother Marj and took... More

This is a great small B&B on quiet West Seattle street only a few blocks from bus stop and restaurants. The breakfasts were excellent cooked by owner Marcia on the weekends and her mother Marjorie during the week. The home has great sitting areas with and without TV in a lovely setting. The hosts are very friendly and and provide... More

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

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

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
