“Wouln't think of staying anywhere else in Tacoma”
Reviewed 24 May 2012 via mobile

We returned to this Bed and Breakfast 7 years after our first stay because we remembered the Inn Keeper, Mary Beth, and our stay so fondly.  This is one of the best B and B's we've had the pleasure of visiting.  Mary Beth is really the key.  She is incredibly warm and hospitable with a knowledge of the area stemming from being a long time resident of the beautiful Tacoma area.  Her recommendation for a great Italian restaurant nearby was spot on. While making us feel completely welcome and at home, she runs a tight and professional business.  She has managed to find that delicate balance that so many others have missed.  Her years of experience in the hospitality industry and concerted efforts toward continued education at conferences and through her associations are plainly evident.  Her breakfasts are always delicious and gourmet enough to feel special without being over your head.  A highlight for us is the varied garnish sprigs of mint, a new one each day, from her garden.  All 3 rooms are so sweet and special.  I have yet to sleep again on such heavenly bed linens.  Though this is an older home, it is well kept and extremely clean, with abundant charm. To be honest, the first time we stayed, we did so on our local friends' recommendation. We would have otherwise passed it over, and would we have missed out.  Whenever we find ourselves in the area again, we will be certain to stay at the Green Cape Cod.

This place is a gem. 7 blocks to the University of Puget Sound in a quiet residential neighborhood close to restaurants and shops. The proprietress is very helpful with restaurant tips, maps and directions to attractions. The bedrooms are small but lovely - the linens superb! I think there are only three rooms to let, so not for a large group, but perfect for a small group. The two upstairs bedrooms are up a fairly steep and shallow-stepped staircase, so you need to be able to negotiate stairs nimbly with your gear - if you can't, get the downstairs room. The breakfasts (we had two) were lovely.

Room Tip: The Green Room is directly above the Gibson Girl Room. If you had noisy neighbors it might be an iss...

We had a lovely stay. It was great to have our own little "retreat" away from all the family activity of a big wedding for a niece. The breakfast was delicious, the other guest really interesting, the room pretty, the bed comfortable, and the hostess was quiet, helpful, and sweet (not the sort to make you a captive audience!).

Room Tip: I like the upstairs best, but they are all good.

Every once in awhile you get to meet someone who is doing exactly the thing they should be doing at exactly the right time in exactly the right place. Mary Beth King, the innkeeper at GCC, is that person and her Bed and Breakfast is that place. Each morning I enjoyed a fabulous home cooked breakfast, after sleeping in the most comfortable bed in a very clean and charming room with flat screen TV, 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, free access to wireless in safe and beautiful surroundings. I quickly learned that she is a gold mine of information so saved a lot of time by just doing the things she suggested! I even got over a cold that had been hanging on for over two weeks.

We sleep better here than we do at home. The beds are so comfortable. I know when I visit here I will catch up on some much needed sleep.
Breakfast is always fantastic. This time we had salmon quiche one morning and the next we had a fabulous sausage and french toast.

I have stayed at the Green Cape Cod several times over the years for work with U of Puget Sound. Mary Beth is always hospitable and her breakfasts are wonderful. This last time, the best scones I ever had! Coming from Victoria, BC, that says a lot. Scones are often too sweet or too dry - these were perfect.

We stayed last night while in the Tacoma area on pleasure. Nice house in a nice neighborhood. Rooms are quite lovely. Everything was clean and cute and quaint. The spectacular part was the hospitality of MaryBeth. She does everything she can to make sure your stay is exceptional. The breakfast was wonderful and she made special scones for my wife (whole wheat) that were excellent.

This is a great place to stay if you're looking for someone to treat you right.
