Welcome to our house. We hope that you enjoy your stay in Seattle. Please take a minute to read the items below to ensure a more comfortable visit to the Bacon Mansion.
Breakfast: Remember that coffee and tea are available at 7:30 am and breakfast is served between 8:30 and 9:30 am. If you know you will not be taking breakfast, please let us know. If you decide to sleep in without telling us, don't worry about it—remember you're on vacation!
Our goal is to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Should you require something for your room, please do not hesitate to ask us! We would be happy to supply you with:
Phone: If you do not have a cell phone and need to use the phone, just ask as I have one you can use that is not the business line.
Smoking: Smoking is permitted only on the outside porches or patios, please. Doors and windows should be closed to the house if you are standing near or under them.
Heaters and Fans: For purposes of fire safety please do not leave the heaters and fans turned on when you are not in the room.
Guests: Please be prepared to meet any of your own guests at the door or ask one of us if we will be available to get the door at a specific time. Also, please escort your guest to the door when they leave.
Eating In: You are welcome to bring back take out or use the microwave. Dishes off the dining room table are fine to use, I will replace them in the morning. Place dishes inside the butler's pantry on the counter or in the sink. Please do not eat in or on the bed.
In case of FIRE: Leave your room immediately, closing all doors behind you. Proceed down the main stairwell or the service stairwell to the ground floor and exit through either the front door guest exit/entrance at the end of the hallway or back patio door in the living room by the piano or the door in the foyer next to the check-in desk. There is also an exit through the marked door at the bottom of the service stairwell one floor below main floor "basement" (use this exit only if other paths are not accessible). Please meet across Broadway in front of the big brick and stucco house at 954 Broadway E. We will then determine who might still be inside.
Do not waste time evacuating the building and do not gather your belongings; either our house insurance or your insurance will cover your belongings. Close but do not lock all doors behind you.
Call 911 and then if you can, immediately contact us. Someone will need to let the emergency personnel in the front door. Otherwise, they will break the door down. Tell them which room you are in and which floor.
We in Seattle are very proud of our recycle rate and, here at the Bacon Mansion, we do as much recycling as we can. In order to assist us in this effort, we ask that you place used newspapers, brochures and bottles (no lids) in the special blue RECYCLE can in your room. We will be in every day to empty your trash and recyclables as well as clean and make up your room.
Also, please do not put any trash in the non-trash dumpsters behind the screen or in my organic waste cans. The trash goes in the dumpster closest to the curb only. Recyclables are the next three and no longer need to be sorted and the last can is organic waste including soiled food containers and food. We prefer that you just give it to us and we will take care of it.
With your help, we can do an even better job!
