The Shafer Baillie Mansion is probably one of the best B&B's you will find anywhere. A magnificent house, beautifully and meticulously renovated by the lovely owner Anna. Our room was stunning and we wished we'd had more than 2 nights to enjoy in this wonderful house and in Seattle. Brenda greeted us and we were lucky to meet both her... More

We were thrilled with our stay at the Shafer Baille Mansion. The location was great with plenty within walking distance and yet easy access to the rest of Seattle. Brenda was a welcoming host and the breakfasts were superb. The Volunteer Room was spacious, bright and well stocked with a very comfortable bed. We will definitely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed two nights in the Queen Anne room. The host Brenda and her helper (I'm sorry, I've already forgotten her name) were both so nice and so helpful. We needed to arrive late because of car trouble. We called and Brenda arranged an easy check in for us. Our room was comfortable and pretty, with a... More

The loveliest mansion in a great part of Seattle, with a lovely staff, so glad we found this place! The main floor has several parlors, a library room, and lots of places to gather or to have time alone. We stayed in the Master Suite on the second floor, which is a grand suite with an enormous master bedroom and... More

A lovely house, in a lovely neighborhood. Quite the respite from Seattle's mind-bending traffic. Comfortable, quiet, clean and old-timey fashionable. Nice selection for breakfast of fresh and good quality food, both cold and hot. The only thing I would recommend is some cooked hot cereal. This will be my go to on future Seattle trips.

If you find yourself in Seattle, be in for business or pleasure, make it a point to book your stay at the luxurious Shafer Baillie Mansion in the city's Capital Hill district.
