When I travelled to Seattle after my trip to Portland I wanted to take things down a further notch. Was it even possible? Even though it was a chilled experience in Portland I decided to stay outside the city centre in Seattle. I found a quaint little Inn on Capitol Hill which suited me called 11th Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast.
The house was on a quiet street and a decent distance from the main road. It was within walking distance from a few convenient bus stops and also close to some boutique shops and nice restaurants if you didn’t want to trek into the city in the evenings.
My first night I thought I was the only one in the Inn as there wasn’t a peep to be heard. But sure enough as I came down for breakfast the following the day there were 4 shining fellow travellers sitting and enjoying a hearty breakfast. Pleasant talk to be had and a wonderful breakfast to behold.
I have never stayed at an Inn where the breakfasts were so lush, nutritious and plentiful. Think fluffy pancakes, crepes, with fresh fruit, cups of tea, yogurt and the like. I was pleased with the variety, tastiness and quality of the food.
I appreciated that there was always tea, coffee and snacks available at the 11th Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast. When I was in Seattle I was lucky to have a bright and sunny days. In the evening it would get a tad chilly. Coming in in from the cold most nights, it was such a pleasure to brew up a Stash Tea within seconds of entering the door.
It was rare that I would see the Inn staff in the evenings. The house felt like my home away from home. Warm, inviting, safe and an air of sweetness. Going up to my room on the second floor with my hot tea, some biscotti in hand and chocolate tucked in my pockets would make for the best part of my evenings resting my sore legs from days of walking up and down hills.
I stayed in the Ruby Room. It was small and tidy. Dark woods, comfy bed, a vanity, desk and comfy chair where included. It was the last room down a long hall and free from any house noise and distractions. It was perfect for a girl like me travelling alone.
The Wi-Fi onsite was fast and made for a great companion when catching up with life at home away from home.
The 11th Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast was a good fit for me whilst in Seattle. For an Inn just a tad outside of the downtown core you are offered an affordable price, creature comforts, a wonderful breakfast layout and a location that can’t be beat.
