Shields of red and white can be seen on the round stained glass windows as one passes through the gates of the Bacon Mansion Bed and Breakfast. Built in 1909 by Cecil Bacon on Seattle’s Capitol Hill, this classical Edwardian Style Tudor shows not only the trademark family crest but a fine preservation of original woods, 3000 crystal chandelier, 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. Bacon Mansion’s massive walls, however, 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 to all who enter.
The main Guest House, consisting of 9,000 square feet of living space is divided between four levels. A spacious outside patio leads to the historical Carriage House. The Mansion’s guest rooms are available nightly, as well as the “day rooms” which are available for social and business events. Besides a delicious breakfast including 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 commercial districts, you will be sure to enjoy shopping and access to Seattle’s many attractions.
