We stayed at the Shafer Baillie two nights in the end of June in the Master Suite on the second floor. My wife and I had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, but at the encouraging of some friends, I started to look for ones in the Seattle area for the start of our trip, finding the Shafer Baillie. After reading great reviews, I booked the best room there for the first two nights of a five night Seattle vacation for my wife's 30th birthday. We were blown away.
Everything about the stay was great. The bed was huge and comfy. The snacks, coffee, and breakfast was fantastic. And the tub and rib-cage shower were amazing. The suite was very large and could have easily had three or four other people in it with us, assuming some were kids.
The price was in the mid $200s, but seeing how most nice hotels were around $200 a night, and all of them required $25 a day for parking, I didn't mind the price. It was in a fantastic and quiet neighborhood just outside of downtown, which made it easy to get everyone.
If you are looking for a bed and breakfast in the Seattle area, give the Shafer Baillie a try, we loved it.
