I searched the internet for the perfect bed and breakfast, and I kept coming back to the Green Cat because it was the one that boasted hiking and was an actual "getaway" at an affordable price...I was not disappointed. The location was easy to find, and even the drive there was enchanting...straight out of a fairytale. We were warmly greeted at the front door, and shown our guest quarters, both equally suprised at the interesting architecture, and pleased to have a whole level to ourselves. The "Green Gable" room was just that.. it was inviting and spacious and had an amazing view of the grounds, and the forest below. It had all the amenities of a hotel with the personal and artistic touches that made it a private home. We toured the gorgeous property, with hidden nooks, curving paths, and private benches encircling the hot tub, surrounded by an amazing deck. Cats played in the grass and were even guests in our room for a while. The owners couldn't be more hospitable, and although it was our first time experiencing a bed and breaktfast, I imagine our basis of comparison will be hard to beat. We quietly slipped out in the morning after a breakfast of fresh fruit, granola, coffee and croissants. I would recommend this to anyone looking to experience a gracious and comfortable holiday in Washington.
