Sheldon and Kate create a welcoming atmosphere. They are natural hosts. The house is lovely and well located by the river for brisk morning walks. Breakfast is muesli, toast, coffee and tea. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Initial contact for booking inquiries was great. Kate was fabulous in getting back to me via e-mail and answered all my questions and inquiries. Booking was easy and straightforward online.

We were also provided a map which helped to find the place. Once we got there, Kate gave us a tour and showed us everything. Everything is provided and no need to worry if you forgot some toiletries or anything else. Plenty of magazines and brochures for you to figure out what to do, and both Kate and Sheldon have plenty of info to offer if you want to know anything. I felt that Kate was quite thoughtful by having little things available, such as earplugs (which we didn't need) by the bedsides.

The kitchen pantry is well stocked with various spices so if you want to do some cooking you are welcome to, you just need to get your ingredients. I cooked one day since the hubby was craving home cooking, and all the kitchen utensils were there for use. There is also an outdoor BBQ that you can use which we did not. The pots, pans and gas stove were great and the kitchen is quite spacious.

Breakfast is provided, with croissants, jam, toast, coffee, tea and you can also make your own eggs if you like.

We stayed upstairs and shared the bathroom with another couple. There are two sinks so we got our "own station". There was only one time when we kind of needed the bathroom at the same time, but other than that, no issues. This would be great if you have a family of two kids and can stay in the two rooms upstairs.

The only thing is the location. We don't mind driving so it is not exactly next to Seattle, but for the cost, service and the accommodations, you just can't beat it. Do allocate extra travel time if you plan to go to Seattle and have an appointment/booking. The I5 is horribly backed up during rush hour, or even at regular hours also. We took the carpool lanes but it was still backed up at times.

We would definitely stay here again since it was just like being at home!

Liked best: The "welcoming" feel of the place and hosts, as well as the e-mail communication prior to arriving.
Liked least: Location ok for Seattle activities, but will be quite far if you plan to go to the Seattle Premium Outlets.

Thanks BV for your kind words. Just a note that there is another bathroom downstairs that can be used when your shared bath is occupied. I'm happy that your hubby needed some home cooking, because you shared your Ginger Chicken with us and it was super yummy, thoroughly enjoyable!

Sheldon and Kate were good hosts, our time spent with them was short because we were there to see all the sight of Seattle and the surrounding area. Our day started early and we usually got back later in the evening. We made it to Vancouver, Bainbridge by ferry, Mt. Rainier, Snoqualmie Falls, Deception Pass, Whidbey Island, Oak Harbor and ferry ride back to Mukilto. Pike's Place Market, Kerry Park, Space Needle, Discovery Park and a lot of shopping malls in and around Seattle. We put over 1000 miles on our rental vehicle. So we weren't at the B & B but to sleep. Thanks to Sheldon and Kate for a memorable time in Seattle.

Georgia, thanks so much for your kind review. It was a pleasure hosting you & Bill while you got to show your grandson your old stomping grounds - what a treat for him, for you, and for us, getting to be a small part of it! Thanks again! Kate & Sheldon.
