Shafer Baillie Mansion Bed & Breakfast

Out And About: Shafer Baillie Mansion

Troy Dean Shafer

One year ago I spent two fabulous weeks touring around Washington state. When visiting Seattle, I had the pleasure of staying in the Shafer Baillie Mansion B& B. I recently found my photos to share with you all.

Shafer Baillie is an exquisite bed & breakfast located on the original Millionaires Row in Seattles Capitol Hill neighborhood. The facade of the Mansion is attractive, but nothing prepared me for the opulence that greeted us as we crossed the foyer.

The oak paneled entrance hall welcomed me into the old 14,000 square foot home. The gleaming wood paneling gave a warm and opulent first impression to guests.

To the left was a large sitting room, its sumptuous period furnishings just beckoning guests to relax perhaps with a cup of tea in front of the large marble fire place.

Ana, one of the owners, led me up the grand staircase to the Capitol Hill Room, which was decorated in a striking combination of black and white textiles and cheerful yellow walls. I loved how the black and white toned down the bright yellow color, while still allowing it to lend a cheerful and classy yet not too austere feeling to the room.

While the size of our room was moderate, the luxury and comfort exceeded our expectations. The bed was cozy, the large old windows let in the perfect breeze, and the spacious, bright bathroom retained its classic style while providing all the modern conveniences, including big glass walk-in shower.
