“Charming, gracious B&B”
Reviewed November 20, 2009

Although I was out and about most of the 2 days I stayed, I enjoyed my time at the Corner House. My room with bath was so comfortable. I wished I'd had time to relax in the pretty little back yard or the covered porch on the second floor. But, the dining room and sitting room were graciously appointed, the breakfast was great, as was the conversation around the table with my hosts and fellow travelers. Julianne and Oliver were charming and considerate hosts in every respect.

Stayed September 2009, traveled solo

We stayed at the Corner House for three nights in August. Julianne and Oliver could not have been more welcoming or helpful. We stayed in the West room which was nice and plenty of space for the two of us. The only downside was that the bathroom was a couple of steps down the hall but we were aware of this beforehand and it was not a problem, especially as there is only one other room and they have their own ensuite bathroom. The breakfasts were wonderful with plenty of fresh fruit and home baking and the meal was enhanced by the lively discussions with our hosts and the other guest. We wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else if we return to Seattle.

My husband and I stayed at the Corner House for three nights in August 2009. After what I had read on tripadvisor beforehand, I expected to have a nice stay at an affordable price. But I can say: the stay exceeded all my expectations!
Our room was the "West Room" which has a spacious and immaculately clean private bathroom across the hall. It didn't bother us at all that the bath wasn't ensuite because that part of the house is very private and we even found bathrobes that we could use in the closet. The room itself is a little on the small side and it doesn't have a TV or any other entertainment equipment, but it too is spotless and offers a very comfortable bed.
The location of the The Corner House is great. You can either take the bus to get downtown or walk if you are not of the footsore kind. On 15th Avenue around the corner you find restaurants if you want to have dinner close by.
The point most worth mentioning however, are the hosts, Julianne and Oliver! These two are the nicest and most interesting people. They clearly don't have a B&B for money but for their interest in people. We shared the most absorbing conversations around the breakfast table, which we enjoyed very much! The breakfast itself was delicious and rich.
We would definitely stay at The Corner House again!

What a generous offer for a beautiful place to stay in Seattle! Easy accese to get to most of the attractions in town. Very cozy, comfortable and neat place. Delicious breakfast with very pleasant conversation with owner and guests. Such a nice treat to start the day with fresh coffee, fruit and more. We highly recommend The corner house to stay in Seattle if you are looking for the best value. Irvine, CA

Used the airport shuttle van to get from SeaTac airport to the Corner House. Very convenient. Lovely quiet and welcoming home. Bedroom was immaculately clean and cosy. Spacious ensuite bathroom well appointed and spotless. Breakfast was amazing. Muesli, fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, bagels, muffins and great Seattle coffee. Our hosts, Julienne, Oliver and Spot (the cat), were welcoming, friendly, gracious, helpful and professional. From the B&B it's a nice (downhill) walk to the city centre but if you don't feel like walking that far for dinner or a drink there's lots to explore within minutes of your front door. We had a lovely stay at the Corner House and hope to return one day. What a great alternative to a personality-less hotel!!

Nicely situated being 25 minutes walk from downtown in a quiet residential and safe area. Run by the very friendly Julianne who makes you feel welcome and as though you had known the family years. Very pleasant and tasty breakfast all home cooked food. We will certainly use this B & B again if ever in Seattle.

We spent here two nights, elderly couple from Finland with our doughter and her husband. The house was so nice and those breakfasts -- so pritty and tasty. Lovely furniture, beautiful and shy cat. Our hostess was friendly and had discussions with us at the breakfast table. Bus stops near. If I ever come to Seattle again I would like to have a room at this place.
