“Not to miss!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

The BCH felt like home to us. Robin was helpful in solving any little problem we had - directions, airport access, where to eat, printing boarding passes, etc. The breakfasts were perfect - delicious, nutritious, and healthy. Do not miss this treasure, close to the University of Puget Sound and interesting small town shopping areas even though they're in a city. Robin has created a lovely home away from home.

When our home suffered an attic fire, we needed somewhere in the neighborhood to stay. The BCH became our home away from home. Robin made things as easy as possible for us, our room was spacious and lovely, the breakfasts were delicious. Whether traveling for business, pleasure—or sanctuary—I enthusiastically recommend the Branch Colonial House. Not only the nicest place to stay in North Tacoma, but possibly the most pleasant accommodation in all of Tacoma.

Room Tip: A great place to lodge family from out of town. Tell Robin you are a neighbor.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Branch Colonial House! It's in a beautiful neighborhood near family. We stayed in the Prospector Suite and it was the perfect size and had great views. Best of all was the homemade breakfast every morning that started the day right. Also the custom coffee drinks made the morning! It was great! Robin the innkeeper accommodated everything we needed and was great to chat with. We be back next time we are in Tacoma for sure!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Branch Colonial House! It's in a beautiful neighbohood, and our room iupstairs even had a view of Puget Sound. The room and bed were really comfortable. Best of all from our perspective, breakfast was great! Robin the innkeeper accommodated our dietary needs (low-carb) with tasty and varied breakfasts.

Robin could not be more accommodating! She made sure that we had breakfast early and coffee even earlier. She gave us our required low carb meals and even had chia seeds! She understands jet lag and the need for a person to stick to their customary diet.

This was a place we landed in because our first place we tried to book was full. We were glad it was. This B & B was one of the best we have stayed in and a perfect home away from home. Robin the Innkeeper made us welcome at the outset and her great service mentality was there till the end. The room was clean, big and very comfortable. The "close to the waterfront" residential area was a great location. The breakfast meal was great and her hospitality along with that of TJ was second to none. We did not plan to stay here but now we will!
