“Best Accidental Find Ever.”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

We had a death in the family and needed to be in Seattle over this past weekend. This being a holiday weekend, and the biggest football game in Seattle history, it was a bit of a stretch finding a place. Then I randomly checked on the link for Chelsea Station. As beautiful as the photos are of the suites, they can't do it justice because you are not able to capture the feel as you walk in. From the warmth of the colors to the beautiful photography on the walls, this place had us the moment we walked in. We had big plans of putting our things down and heading out into the Freemont area for dinner with my Brother-In-Laws and quickly ditched that plan and had them over for take out. Where can you find phenomenal service (Lori and Marina are top notch) paired with extreme comfort, wine tasting and a free and fully loaded snack and drink station? There are no $4 bottles of water here folks. Instead it is beer, cheese, nuts, sparkling juices, ice cream, and many other things I am forgetting to list. In the morning we had tasty espresso from a machine we now have to buy, and then breakfast came walking in. You have choices of small, medium, large, and extra large meals. Unless you plan on not eating for the rest of the day, not many people will need the extra large. We went with the large and it was huge! Not to mention beautiful and some of the best french toast either of us have had. I am not a breakfast person and I loved it so much that we took what I didn't eat home for a snack.This will be a yearly trip for us, and from here on out it will be at least a two night stay. Thank you to Lori and Marina who's warmth and hospitality made this trip even better for us.

I was expectant to find a place matching the pictures, but there are some things that can't be captured by a camera. I love the place, the food, the wine testing and the warmth approach of Lori. Really worth every minute, my teenage daughter didn't want to leave the place!!

I fell in love with the Chelsea Station Inn about 5 minutes after I walked into my suite. Gorgeous! The suite is spacious and beautifully, yet comfortably, decorated. The queen-sized bed in the room was wonderful, as was the pull out bed in the living room. It's private, quiet, and cozy. There's two bathrooms so that if you have guests they don't have to use yours. The hospitality is amazing. The owner even stopped by to welcome me and my friends. Just about everything you need is provided for you, including complimentary drinks such as water, soda, juice, wine, beer, coffee and tea. The breakfast was beautiful and fabulous! I'm definitely coming back again!

After reading reviews on TripAdvisor I was excited about staying at Chelsea Station for 2 nights around the New Year. When my husband and I walked in we couldn't believe how incredibly cozy, comfortable, and inviting the place was. It literally took our breath away. Within minutes we'd decided to stay a 3rd night and even thought about extending our stay to 4 nights! The inn is well run - from the extra blankets in the closet, drinks and snacks just a few steps away, the welcome book that included everything from how to work the TV/DVR to restaurant recommendations, to the placards and notes around the room telling you exactly what you didn't think to ask. It's AMAZING!

Breakfast was delicious and promptly served each morning between 8-9:30 (you get to choose). The innkeepers are friendly and available, but leave you to relax and enjoy your stay.

Each afternoon wine is served in the small kitchen downstairs, but it's left out on the table in case you are out or want a glass later in the evening. We stayed on New Year's Eve and returned to an entire bottle of champagne and a New Year's greeting card.

This is a delightful place to stay and conveniently located (close enough to downtown but in a quieter location). Green Lake is very nearby (about 1/2 mile away) if you're a big runner or walker and want to fit in a nice run around the lake (2.8 mile pathway).

Stay here. You won't regret it! When we return to Seattle, we'll definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: All 4 rooms are about the same size and decor. Staying in room 3 or 4 will be slightly quieter as th...

This was our third stay at Chelsea Station for New Year's eve and the following night. We love this place! The only word for it is elegant. They serve a marvelous breakfast every day and there are lots of snacks and wine in the innkeepers' quarters. They also left a complimentary bottle of champagne in our room! While just across the street from the south entrance to Woodland Park Zoo, it is still quiet and peaceful. The suites are beautifully appointed and they just keep getting better and better. This year we found a new espresso maker in the kitchen, which we thoroughly enjoyed. We always enjoy walking the nearby neighborhoods of Ballard, Fremont, Phinney Ridge and Greenlake. Great location, beautiful suites and excellent food. I want to move in full time.

Room Tip: The rooms are identical and there is not a bad one in the lot. We've stayed in three out of the...

We've made a yearly tradition of staying at Chelsea Station during the holiday season, even though it is only 10 miles from our home. Our friends ask why would stay so close to home instead of getting of town (which we do often), so I try to explain to them that if other B&Bs are macaroni and cheese, this place is macaroni and cheese with four kinds of real cheese, ham, AND bacon. There are so many nice little touches that make our stay so special that I think we would just live there if possible. Beautiful, warm décor with all the modern amenities added without taking away from the coziness. Great location with easy access to downtown Seattle, Ballard, Woodland Park, and you don't even need a car. Of all the vacations we take each year, this is the shortest, but by far the one we talk about and look forward to the most. There may be some places that are less expensive, but Chelsea Station is definitely the best value. Charles and Bonney, thank you for looking after all the little details that make it such a joy to spend time here.

This is our second time staying and we will definitely return. The room is warm and inviting with every possible comfort readily available. The breakfast is delicious. The innkeepers are friendly and accommodating. We were surprised by delicious fresh made treats in our room each afternoon. We were left a complimentary bottle of wine which they gladly changed for sparkling cider since we aren't drinkers. They definitely go the extra mile to make you feel at home. The pantry area is stocked with beverages and snacks that you can enjoy anytime. The room has an espresso machine which made the leisurely mornings that much more pleasant. Chelsea Station is close to everything you can possibly want to do in and around Seattle. Comfort, elegance, peace & quiet, pure enjoyment! We just can't say enough good things about Chelsea Station Inn.
