Meritage Meadows is one of those places you stumble along and thank your lucky stars you did your research well. My wife and I wanted to spend a few days in Seattle but not pay the downtown prices - I ask you, $40 for parking at the Marriot? It only took us about 25 minutes to get to Pike Place Market and it's an easy route.
So we decided to base ourselves out of Redmond for three days at this tranquil country inn. Karen and Bob are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. Our room, the Red Mountain, was their best one, although all rooms are excellent. The bathroom was the star as it featured a Japanese soaker tub (read very deep, big enough for two, and you sit upright), a massive shower (used to be a steam room) and a full size sauna.
It's not often that a place is actually better than depicted on the website, but in this case Meritage Meadows Inn exceeded our expectations. We loved how welcome we felt and the fact that guest are welcome to use a wide variety of rooms. For instance, if you want to order food in, Bob and Karen are happy for you to use the formal dining room table and provide plates, knives etc. There is a guest fridge, and it's stocked with ice creams, which is a nice touch.
Breakfasts were truly excellent, and we are foodies and sometimes difficult to please.
I short, we will be back - soon. Meritage Meadows is friendly, welcoming, clean, comfortable, tranquil, great value, and one of the nicest inns we've stayed at. Thanks Karen and Bob - see you soon!
