Stayed at Swantown Inn Fri 10/18-Sun 10/20. The innkeepers Nathan and Casey were very personable and friendly, offering excellent suggestions on where to eat for dinner and local sights to take in. I was there with two girlfriend from work for a "beading" weekend, and we reserved the three rooms with bathrooms. All of us were very satisfied with our rooms. The beds were quite comfortable, and the Astoria, which I stayed in, has a lovely electric fireplace that adds not only ambiance, but also warmth.
The weather was perfect for our stay, as we had planned to be indoors on Saturday working on bead projects. So the gray fog that never burned off was very atmospheric, and perfect for an afternoon spent taking over the dining room table with projects after a morning visit to Shipwreck Beads in Lacey, 3 miles north on I-5. Nathan was extremely accommodating and easy going about our use of the dining room :)
The house itself is delightful, with a feeling of staying at a favorite granny's house - nostalgic, historical, comfortable, and the food was BETTER than granny's! Saturday was "sweet", with stuffed croissants, strawberry chipotle sorbet and maple pecan scones. YUM! Sunday we were treated to a savory breakfast of banana coconut sorbet, apple souffle and cranberry scones. Delicious and filling. Visiting with Nathan and Casey through breakfast was an added bonus.
All three of us would highly recommend Swantown Inn as an affordable, comfortable and enjoyable place from which to explore Olympia and the surrounding area, or just hunker down and soak up a cozy place to reconnect with friends/family!!
