My husband and I stayed at the Greenlake Guest House for the first several days of our honeymoon. It was the first Bed and Breakfast experience for both of us. I am now completely spoiled.
Blayne and Julie were great hosts. The breakfasts were incredible. My only concern was that my husband would expect me to be able to duplicate those meals. :o)
The room was comfortable and clean. Even in the heat, they kept us cool with a portable A/C. The spa tub was my favorite part. They have a great DVD collection in case you want to spend some time in. There was a mini-fridge that the guests could utilize. This was convenient for storing leftovers from our picnic at Mt. Rainier.
The lake was beautiful as well as extremely relaxing. It was a nice change of pace after the wedding. Paddle boats, swimming holes, jogging trails, people watching. There was lots to do there.
We were able to meet and chat with several new people around the breakfast table. Some were from the area and some were from places as far away as Holland.
We felt at home enough to come and go as we pleased. Whether we were just hanging out in our room, sitting in the sun room, going on a day trip, or going out for a nice dinner, we were comfortable with coming back at different hours.
Blayne and Julie were both very helpful in giving us directions to and from where we needed to go and making suggestions as to what local places and events we might be interested in. The local restaurants were great.
Overall, we had a GREAT time. I would definitely recommend Greenlake Guesthouse to anyone looking for a great, friendly, personal place to stay. If we are ever back in the Seattle area, we know exactly who to call.
