A full guest room and a teething toddler led us to find alternative accomodations in Seattle. We found a gem in this 1906 dowager in the Capitol Hill section of the city. Although the room was in the basement (forget the "tucked under" nonsense in the brochure ), it was light, spacious and comfortable. We were happy and very comfortable during our two night stay.
There are eleven rooms available on various floors of this spacious old tudor style mansion. Public rooms include a library, livingroom and very large dining room in which an expanded continental breakfast ( my definition) is served. The porch opens into a garden with a charming fountain which is adjacent to the carriage house which can accomodate larger family groups.
Do not expect the million calorie killer french toast breakfast. My venerable spouse however, was wildly happy with the fresh fruit salad, juices, cereals and really delicious muffins. I judge by the coffee. It was good. I was Happy. Someone has also given a great deal of thought to the selection of teas.
People were helpful and charming. The owner was on vacation, but things seem to run smoothly. Our bathroom was large, well lit, had good linens and an excellent water supply. Tolietries were of excellent quality. Wing chairs in the bedroom are always a plus. A fridge was handy and coffee was placed just outside the room in the am.
On the minus side: I need to lend them my Aunt Agnes for a course in dusting. Bathrobes would be a nice touch and some of the bed pillows have seen better days.
We would return in a heartbeat and would reccomend to all including Aunt Agnes!
