We recently stayed at the Swantown Inn when we came to visit our son at Evergreen College. Even before we walked in the door I had exchanged emails with Nathan asking for some restaurant recommendations. He responded almost immediately.
From the time we walked through the door, Nathan and Casey made us feel instantly at home. The house is just stunning, and they've done such a great job keeping it "pure" and not loaded up with faux antiques. Most of the furniture is truly antique, with a richness that speaks of use, but lovingly maintained. We stayed in the Astoria Room, which with the four post bed, fireplace (it's not a real one, but looks that way and made the room even more lovely) jacuzzi, heated bathroom floor, sofa, writing desk and chair, corner table and large wardrobe, is incredible. It is HUGE and felt more like a small apt than a room. There were 2 wine glasses, a corkscrew and a dozen red roses on the mantle! Beautiful crystal water glasses on a corner table were a nice touch, too. The rugs are scrumptious soft and thick, and the sheets and comforter melt around you they are so soft!! The private bathroom has a huge jacuzzi which was most welcome after a day spent walking around in Olympia. Soft robes completed the experience.
The breakfasts are to die for, very original and tasty. Beg Casey to make some of her sorbet. The pumpkin was delicious. Maple walnut scones were so good I had 2. Casey's special chocolate chip cookies are really and truly the best CC cookies I've ever eaten. She keeps them in a huge glass jar in the living room always available to hungry guests. A midnight cookie is truly decadent. Make sure you have one while relaxing in the living room.
We will be making lots more trips to Olympia and won't even consider staying anywhere else! My husband summed it up. He said the attention to details, in all forms, made the stay.
