  • Attractions and Events

    As residents of the Seattle area for over 14 years, we find nothing more satisfying than sharing our knowledge and love of the Northwest with our guests. We recommend a minimum of three days to get a real flavor for the area.

    Visit the links below for a list of some of our favorite attractions & dining spots to consider when planning your upcoming trip.

    Enjoying your vacation starts right here at the bed and breakfast. Take a peaceful beach walk or a 4-mile jog around the quaint neighborhood. You might hear seals barking, view an eagle in flight, or if you're lucky, see a visiting pod of Orca whales. Relax on your patio, enjoy a massage, take a dip in the hot tub, watch a movie, or curl up with a book from our library.

    For the visitor who'd like to experience more of the area, Seattle is a vibrant city with a myriad of sites to see and things to do. Pikes Place Market, known for its local color, unique foods, art, crafts, the infamous “flying” fish stand, and so much more, is not to be missed. You might also be interested in the city's underground tour, the numerous microbreweries…and we can't forget the space needle.

    Our Space Needle Trip Tip: Make reservations for lunch in the rotating restaurant, enjoy a good meal, bypass the line, and your space needle ticket fee will be waived.

    Seattle's outlying areas, a mix of rugged mountain terrain and peaceful ocean inlets are visually stunning. Whether you're seeking leisure or more athletic pursuits, there's something for everyone. Ferry over to the islands to the Olympic National Forest, to Victoria B.C., or take a day trip up to Mount Rainer to hike, play in the snow, and enjoy meadows of wild flowers.
