“Another wonderful experience at 9 Cranes Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

This was our second stay at 9 Cranes Inn and again it was fantastic. It was so good to see Shelly again and experience her wonderful food. I am now on a diabetic diet and Shelly made great food for me and it looked the same as what the others were served and it was so tasty. We made our reservations for the Ballard Room again with the lovely balcony and loved it so much. To me, it is like a quiet retreat with all of the luxuries one could imagine. We chose 9 Cranes Inn the first time to be near our family and the second time because it is just a fantastic experience. We loved walking to Phinny Ridge, meeting family for lunches and dinners there and shopping in interesting stores. My granddaughter said she plans to go to 9 Cranes Inn when she is grown and returns to visit friends and family. Thank you Shelly for a wonderful stay once again. Jean and Bob Hamlin

Room Tip: We just love the Ballard Room with the balcony. We loved being on the balcony, watching the clouds...

An Absolutely Amazing B&B! Shelley has really covered every little detail. A beautiful home, gracious hostess, comfortable rooms with many amenities! We added a goodie basket to our stay and it was PACKED with all kinds of goodies, more than we ever expected. Very close to Fremont, Ballard, Woodland Park Zoo. Kudos to Shelley, our stay was memorable!

Close to downtown, located in the Phinney neighborhood, the 9 Cranes Inn is a great alternative to institutional-feeling hotels in the city. Shelley is a great host, all of the rooms are lovely (we stayed in the Phinney Ridge room which was cozy, clean and spacious). The neighborhood is quiet and located close to public transportation, which we enjoyed despite having our own car.

We stayed at this lovely b&b for 2 nights, on a last minute reservation. It was a great stay; very comfortable room and furnishings, meticulously clean, quiet and pleasant neighborhood, amazing food. I've stayed in many b&b's over the years and loved this one; Shelley is a great hostess. I also really appreciate the Eco-friendly and conscientiousness in purchases, products and food. Definitely recommend staying here! :)

We had a comfortable stay. Rooms were clean, quiet, well arranged, and the breakfast was extraordinarily good. Wifi works excellent, and the complementary coffee and coke kept us awake. Only, too expensive, but you can not have it all.

My daughter was expecting her first son (our first grandson). Planned on staying in a bed and breakfast near by, that was our first choice. When the baby was born we could not find a room there and were refered to the 9 Cranes Inn. That was a stroke of luck. It was closer to my daughter's home, and I found to my delight that it is a beautiful place, with a very attentive owner that took great care to ensure all my needs were met (including diatery). In short I would recommend this place full heartedly.

My husband and I stayed here as a little getaway from Portland. We stayed on the top floor, and our room had a tub with jets and a balcony with an amazing view. It helped that the weather was amazing, but our room was luxurious and breakfast was healthful and so delicious. We also appreciated Shelly bringing up her dogs for my husband to play with. So conveniently located to the zoo and great shops and restaurants.
