The location of the Bacon Mansion is terrific, and even though our room was in the basement, it was spacious and comfortable. And the crowd at breakfast was interesting. BUT, if you are not eating much carb, then breakfast won't be for you. OK coffee, fruit, sweet yoghurt, cereals, and muffins. You'd be better off eating someplace else, like the Skillet, but then that defeats the purpose of staying at a Bed & BREAKFAST!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is not in the basement

We stayed in one of the Basement rooms and had a huge living and bedroom area. The bathroom was also large and had a separate water closet, which is nice when traveling with a partner. For a basement room we had quite a few windows and a landing outside the room (which was shared with 2 other rooms) where there was a small refrigerator and microwave which was convenient. Keep in mind this home was built in 1909, so you can't expect perfection, but the bed was comfortable and the room had lots of lamps. The reason I gave a 4 star was our little faux fireplace didn't work and it was a really cold day, so that would of been nice. Also, coffee isn't served or put out until 7:30 which is very late for early risers. Also, the side door your enter and exit in needs to be repaired. The wind easily blew it open and it stayed open all night, making it very cold when we went upstairs. But overall, we slept well, it was quiet and comfortable and parking was a plus!!!

Room Tip: We slept well in the Emerald Suite. Quiet for a basement room.

The mansion is a large home with very nice amenities in a part of town that can't be beat. The location is near many sites, and we spent a lot of time just wandering around and taking in Seattle. Our room was in the attic of the main house and was cozy, but not recommended for anyone very tall, as you'd possibly bump your head on the ceiling. The breakfasts consisted of fresh fruit salad, yogurt (with fixings), cereal and the best homemade muffins anyone could ask for. Daryl, the host, has lived in Seattle long enough to provide good and helpful information about where to go and what to do. We would definitely stay there again.

All in all, a very nice place. The room (in our case, the upper floor of a carriage house) was very comfortable and nicely furnished. The main building is an older mansion, elegantly restored, with very pleasant sitting and dining rooms. Staff was friendly and helpful. The B&B has free parking--definitely a plus--and is close enough to the Interstate. It's located in Capitol Hill,an upscale neighborhood a few miles north of downtown. There's a very pleasant park nearby and lots of restaurants and shops. It's about a half-mile walk from the B&B to the light-rail station, which takes you right downtown and, further, to the airport.

Admittedly,the Bacon Mansion isn't cheap, but Seattle is a very expensive city, so by Seattle standards I would describe it as mid-priced.

Breakfast was very nice, including home-made muffins. Coffee, as one might expect in Seattle, is superb. The only--and very faint--negative note is that the breakfast is all sweet; there are no savory options. But that's a very small flaw in what is otherwise an eminently pleasant experience.

My husband and I had a lovely stay at the Bacon Mansion and would definitely return.

Each B & B is unique -- it's an expression of the host's vision of hospitality, combined with the features and quirks of the property itself. If you fundamentally need and want a very predictable and standardized hospitality experience, then B and B's might not be the right type of travel accommodation for you. You need to be willing and prepared to enjoy and respond to what you find at each inn.

We found (in the Iris room, a little, cozy, steeply gabled room without a closet,) a comfortable bed with lovely heavy cotton sheets, window fans instead of A/C, a bath shared conveniently with the one other third floor room, with waffled cotton spa robes to facilitate the steps from room to bath, and AWESOME water pressure in the 3rd floor shower.

The common areas on the first floor are both indoor and outdoor, and include a lovely garden area, ample and multiple small group seating spaces, and a beautiful large dining room with a spacious table. Breakfast included bottomless tasty coffee, fresh fruit, yogurt and granola, as well as baskets of still-warm fruit muffins on the table.

We found Daryl and his staff welcoming, helpful, friendly and efficient. I inquired in advance about having a local friend join us for breakfast, and she was welcomed with no fuss, and we were not charged. The key arrangements were easy, the host is available by text, the neighborhood is lovely, walkable and has easy access to public transport. After our gorgeous August stay, I thought we'd even love to visit in the depths of February and enjoy the gas fireplaces and the library.

I can't imagine not enjoying the Bacon Mansion, unless you're the sort of traveler who can't be happy unless you're *looking* for something to criticize! Unless you're THAT traveler, we'd highly recommend.
