Stay in our Seattle bed and breakfast, and enjoy the charm and comfort of yesterday, with all the convenience of today.
Shields of red and white can be seen on the round stained glass windows as one passes through the gates of the Bacon Mansion – the leading bed and breakfast in Seattle, Washington. Built in 1909 by Cecil Bacon on Seattle's Capitol Hill, this classic Edwardian-style Tudor shows not only the trademark family crest, but a fine preservation of original woods, chandelier with 3,000 crystals, marble fireplaces, and a treasured library.
Located in the Historical Harvard-Belmont Landmark District, most of the original floor plan and exterior has been retained. In 1984, a great fire burned 60% of the interior and necessitated major renovation. Fortunately, Bacon Mansion's massive walls spared the glass and wood pocket doors found in the "day rooms." Opening as The Broadway Guest House in 1985, this unique bed and breakfast is now a stately residence for all who enter.
The main Guest House, consisting of 8,000 square feet of living space, is divided between four levels. A spacious outside patio leads to the historic Carriage House. The Mansion's guest rooms are available nightly, as well as the "day rooms," which are available for social and business events. Along with delicious breakfasts, which include a potpourri of cereals, muffins and delicacies, catered lunches, dinners and receptions are also available.
History fills the mansion walls, and while you explore the house, perhaps you will catch a fellow guest playing the grand piano. Just a short distance from the Capitol Hill and downtown Seattle's commercial districts, you will be sure to enjoy shopping and access to Seattle's many attractions.

We have replaced all of the queen mattresses and box springs except for the Emerald Suite and the king bed in the Capitol Suite as they were newer already. I know you will enjoy the new plush firm mattresses that we got through a local company BedroomsandMore. Let me know what you think.
New carpet this spring in the thrid floor shared bath Iris and Cabin Rooms, Venetian Room, Clipper Room, Carriage Loft Room and Garden Room. Very pleased with the result and will try and get some new pictures up sometime soon.
Have been moving on replacing many lights with LED. Have already seen a noticable drop in the power bill.
Light Rail all the way from SeaTac Airport to downtown opened with an easy transfer to the 49 that will bring you with in one short block. Our Capitol Hill Station is still years away. Try 2015 and they have started work on it in 2009. It does though look like we will be getting a trolley from the International District trolley station to two blocks away at 10th E. and E. Aloha to open in 2013 or later. Will keep everyone updated
Rates are lower this time of year in the winter months and do start to go up a little in March and on weekends.
I want to thank all the returning guests that we have seen here at the Bacon Mansion. It has been a pleasure reconnecting with all of you. Your return means more to us than a review, though would love it if you took the few minutes to write one. Please let us know if there are things that we can do to improve your stay. There are lots of great things to do here in Seattle even in the winter months and would love to help both new and returning guests plan and enjoy many of them.
You may book online when checking "Reservations" we do our best to keep the availability current so if it shows open you can pretty much count on it being open, we will get back to you quickly if it is not.
We are happy to take them over the phone if it is during business hours (8 am to 7 pm or later most week nights), to insure that you are reserving the room that best fits your desires and needs and to make sure you understand our cancellation and check-in policies.

We do put some of our inventory on some corporate booking engines. For the best selection and opportunity to book all of our rooms it is best to use our reservation system through this website. It also keeps all of your lodging dollars within this small business so we can continue to invest in improvements.
