We've had the pleasure of laying our heads down on the very comfy sheets at this new bed and breakfast on Phinney Ridge twice now. The first time was in the lofty Ballard View room with its immense deck overlooking the Olympic Mountains and even a teeny view of the Space Needle. This room wouldn't be the choice if stairs are an issue as it's on the 3rd floor, but the climb is worth it.
The second time we stayed in the Woodland Park room, just off the dining room. We loved the heated floor in the bathroom and the super cozy bed. It's the smallest of the rooms but perfectly comfortable, with the same well-appointed amenities as the Ballard View room. Shelley, the owner, is helpful but not sugary sweet, she knows when to leave her guests alone but is available when you need help or have a question. Homemade cookies, a fresh cooked breakfast in the morning, excellent coffee, a quiet charming neighborhood, really comfortable beds and some of the most attractively decorated rooms I've ever stayed in, we'll be back!
