Teresa is lovely and went out of her way to help us when we needed to stay for a longer period of time than we had originally been planning. I personally think she charges way less than she should considering how much work goes into maintaining it. I cannot recommend Enliven enough. Such an amazing place.

Enliven is no ordinary Bed and Breakfast Inn. Enliven is a unique haven in a beautiful north Seattle neighborhood for travelers seeking non-toxic accommodations. Enliven was thoughtfully designed and intentionally planned to provide distinctive accommodations that are free of toxic chemicals, fragrances, mold and hidden accumulated dust. During my recent visit to Seattle, I was able to fully relax and rest knowing that I was staying in an ultraclean environment that supported my health with purified air, readily available filtered water, exquisitely comfortable organic bedding, and low electromagnetic fields. The owner/host thought of every little detail to ensure an exceptional stay. At one’s disposal were top quality amenities and an abundance of conveniences and local resources to make the stay smooth, easy, and comfortable. This bed and breakfast inn rivals any five star resort. Enliven is brought to life by its warm-hearted host, Teresa. Teresa is the incredible woman behind the scenes who has lovingly created and meticulously maintained this exceptional inn. There is a clear and well-defined vision manifested at Enliven that will allow you to be in the very best environment for your health during your travels to the Seattle area

This was my first stay at Enliven - and I loved it! I really felt at home and absolutely welcomed in this beautiful, super clean, and comfortable haven. I highly, highly recommend Enliven to anyone who is looking for a place that offers a safe, healthy, low-EMF, chem-free environment. Teresa is such a kind and lovely host, and I thank her from my heart for making my stay special.

I have been to Enliven B&B twice now and never need for anything during my stay. Teresa has thought of every detail for your comfort. The house is exceptionally clean and comfortable. I come here during treatment for my health at a clinic nearby and it really kickstarts my healing and sends me home feeling much better. I have also been inspired to change my own home to include some of Enliven's features!

I had another visit, this time in another room, smaller than Suite Blue but it worked out just fine! I noticed Teresa added a sink in the kitchen/eating area which was a wonderful addition to making you feel at home and at ease for meal prep in place of eating out. I deal with severe MCS and tried testing a few back up places in case Enliven is fully booked next time I'm in Seattle but nothing compares... it's a make or break my trip and Teresa makes it a home away from home.

Thank you for the lovely review, Niki! I’m so glad you like the new sink/dishwasher area. I hired someone to build the cabinet and make a containment tent in the garage so I could oversee everything, carefully chose all of the materials and made sure nothing else was used—he was a little frustrated with me by the end but it was worth it! Big hugs to you, and again—thank you for taking the time to write this review. I appreciate it and you!

Driving through the scenic neighborhood. enjoying the vistas and Fall foliage, I got the first clue about all the magic I would experience at Enliven. The moment I entered the home and its warm surroundings, my heart jumped for joy! The guest common areas were warmly decorated; the kitchen/dining area had every possible item one could use to prepare food and beverages. Teresa had baskets for each guest's personal items as well as a wide array of spices, herbs, organic oils, etc. for guest use. As a first-born Virgo who delights in organization, I could take lessons from Teresa. Bottom line - she made it super clear and super easy for guests. My room was very spacious and stocked with items like home - spa robe, bedside mini-book reading lights, chair by the window for reading/meditation, and lots of good lighting. Fabulous blackout curtains for sleeping on the very comfortable bed. I fell asleep quickly and slept through the night. While I do not have chemical sensitivities, I delighted in the fresh-air feel throughout. It made me realize how many scents and chemical smells I am regularly exposed to and how deeply pleasant it was to be free of them at Enliven. In addition, every room was so clean it sparkled! Sounds silly - and true! Teresa has created a haven for chemically-sensitive people and for any guest who wants a peaceful, ultra-clean, and warmly inviting place to stay for a short or extended stay. She is so delightful and eager to assist quests. She responds rapidly to all communications. Thank you Teresa for all the work required to make Enliven so special. People who know me will not believe it when I say I have no suggestions for improvement!!

Thank you so much for this glowing review! And, my apologies—my initial thank you apparently didn’t post. I must have gotten distracted by some upper level Virgo cleaning. ;) I am actually an Aries but “a very weird Aries” according to someone that did my chart years ago! I so enjoyed your visit, and hope to see you again! Warmly, Teresa

I should have written this review after my first visit. This would be a luxurious place for anyone but for those with chemical sensitivity it is heaven. I can breath! It is beautiful, soothing and exceptionally clean in every way. The breakfasts even catered to my needs. Teresa and her staff are so lovely and accommodating. It is evident how much effort they put into Enliven. I love it and I WILL be back!

This place goes above and beyond in so many ways! As I was describing how clean, dust-free, aroma-free, and mold-free it was to a friend, my friend assumed that it would be sterile and uninviting, yet just the opposite is true. Enliven is the best of both worlds: clean and safe for those who are chemically or mold sensitive, while also being so very lovely, inviting, and comfortable with beautiful touches in every room. It is one of the more luxurious bed and breakfast's we've stayed at.

most people will tell you that i am VERY PICKY! i had a choice between booking here and the local marriott which was the exact same price...i made the RIGHT DECISION! i am still at teresa's lovely accommodation writing this and i actually fell like i am at my own home on the east coast - it's quiet, it's impeccably clean and orderly (not so MY house..) and since i have been in the den quite a bit with paperwork i have been able to observe the INCREDIBLE amount of time that she and her staff dedicate toward keeping this abode free of dust, smells, mold, chemicals and anything else one doesn't particularly appreciate having to put up with! one half of her large home is dedicated to her guests and is set up for self-catering with a fridge, hotplate, dishwasher, etc. and includes a living room, dining/kitchen area and cozy den with a large TV. truly, i feel at home here and teresa is the loveliest innkeeper one could hope for: full of info on the local area and extremely accommodating for your every need. (well, she didn't exactly offer up a husband when i asked...) you will be VERY happy you picked this place!! i will come back in several months' time!

Carlsbad, California1 contribution
As an environmentally challenged individual, I was thrilled to discover that a place like Enliven even existed. Until this past week, I have not taken a vacation in ten years. Enliven is a "safe" place to stay without worry of getting sick from fragrance and other chemicals so prevalent in most, if not all, hotels. Not only is Enliven completely chemical free, it is also a beautiful, nurturing, and peaceful environment. Enliven is spotlessly clean, well organized, and extremely well appointed. I stayed in the largest room called "Suite Mama Blue", which quickly became my sanctuary. It is an enormous and beautifully decorated master suite, with a large en-suite bathroom, complete with 2' deep soaking tub. The wool pillows were a little too thick and stiff for my neck, but Teresa has wonderful feather pillows upon request. I didn't order the breakfast, so I can't review it, however I did order meals from "The Secret Ingredient", which is a health oriented cooking service, and the food was excellent. Enliven is located in a handsome and very quiet hilltop neighborhood, and I enjoyed many peaceful walks admiring the views and stunning gardens in bloom. Be advised that the Inn is not within walking distance of anything (unless you really like long hilly walks). If you don't have a car, an independent "chemical free" driver is available for hire. Overall, Enliven B & B reflects the warm and loving nature of the owner, Teresa. Staying at Enliven was a marvelous experience, and even better than expected. Enliven is now my "go to" getaway sanctuary. Highly recommended.

Thank you for the review, Shelby! One of my very favorite things is to host chemically sensitive people traveling for fun, and it was wonderful meeting you. I’m glad you enjoyed the meals you ordered from the Secret Ingredient! Ella and her team are gifted chefs and work hard to meet the specific dietary needs of my guests. She cooks for me sometimes, too, and it’s a lovely gift to myself to have someone else make delicious food that’s healthy, organic, gluten-free, Keto, etc! Thanks again for the review. I look forward to your next visit!
