“Incredible hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Elsie and her brother Bill are both so sweet. We were treated like royalty. Elsie allowed us to come in late after a late flight. Her brother Bill picked us up from the airport and took us back which was so convenient.

We went to pick up a puppy and Elsie was kind enough to allow us to have him delivered to the bed and breakfast. Even though she is listed as no pets. Thank goodness he was an angel. No damage and no accidents.

Breakfast was huge and so good. Elsie offers yogurt, cereal and fresh fruit from her yard and the farmers market while she cooks a full breakfast. It was excellent

She and her grand daughter also gave us change for the public transportation. I went to give her bills for the change and they would not take it. We truly felt like we were staying with our aunt and cousin. They were so friendly. Candice was visiting with her twins. They are so adorable and well behaved. We never even knew they were there.

If you need a place to stay near the airport this is the place. Convenient to the airport and public transportation. Stunning views. And so comfortable. The bed was very comfortable which is important to me. We did not need to bring any toiletries. Elsie provided them all.

Just cannot say enough about how wonderful this place is.

We stayed with Elsie for a night and then at Shuryl's B&B right next store. We had a wonderful stay at both places. Elsie only had one night open and that is why she suggested Shuryl's which was excellent also. The food, hospitablity and over all charming for both spots was wonderful. We recommend it highly and we hope we will have an opportunity to go back.

Elsie, owner/hostess of this B&B, is a wonderful lady and fixes you an amazing breakfast each morning... at whatever best suits you. This is a great location, just minutes from Safeco field and the Seahawks Stadium. You can't beat her pricing either!

We've stayed here 2 different times and will definitely come again.

Bring cash, she keeps her costs low in part by not charging tourism taxes or taking credit cards.
