What tempted us to select this lovely little B&B Inn was the vaunted 3-course breakfast, and it did not disappoint. Far from it. They even tailored their regular menu to suit our dietary preference, which was a really nice gesture. Parking was also covered in the price, which while not exactly rock-bottom, was well worth the facilities, all things considered.
Everything about the place was very tastefully done; the room was impeccably decorated and clean, the bathroom likewise, the furniture very nice and comfy and the fireplace in our room provided great ambience and a nice contrast to the not-so-good weather outside during our visit.
I do not have much experience with B&B-s in general, but having had this greatly positive experience, I'd take a B&B of this quality over a hotel anytime!
The place is very conveniently situated, a 10-minute walk to the University of Washington which while having its own ambience and attractions, also enables one to take a convenient bus downtown to Seattle and so avoid the exorbitant cost of parking there, not to mention navigating the traffic on ones own.
