fantastic 2 person bathtub with a view, gracious host, yummy food, lovely Craftsman ambiance in the living room and dining room, interesting artwork throughout the house, lots of natural light. Weather was too cold for us to take advantage of the large private deck. Very short walk to a direct bus line to Seattle Center. Several nice restaurant choices in...

My boyfriend and I stayed at 9 Cranes Inn this past weekend. It was our first time at a Bed and Breakfast, and it was a wonderful experience. We were in town for a concert and the location was perfect. The house was beautiful and our hostess was very courteous and accommodating (and made a great breakfast as well!). We...

I recently stayed at 9 Cranes Inn for three nights and I could not have been happier. There is so much attention to detail and everything is perfectly clean. Shelley is a wonderful hostess. The breakfast was excellent. I could go on and on but I have run out of superlatives! I visit Seattle at least once per year and...

9 Cranes Inn is located near the Woodland Park Zoo, Phinney Ridge, Ballard, and Green Lake so there is lots to do and see nearby. The inn itself is charming, warm and very clean and well appointed. Innkeeper Shelley has thought of every detail to make for a pleasant stay and her breakfasts are tops.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was well appointed and spacious. We were able to have a great chat with the owner and hostess, Shelly. She was great to talk with, helpful, and knowledgeable. Breakfast was wonderful! We look forward to staying here again.

On Returning It is just as good as I thought at first. The level of cleaning and the care of the people staying here made it seem as if noone had stayed in my favorite room since the last time.

This was our first visit to 9 Cranes, and I'm so glad we found it. It will be our Seattle base from now on -- so long as we can get reservations! (It books up fast.) Shelley is warm and relaxed but obviously very attentive to detail -- the rooms were impeccably clean; breakfast was delicious; our registration and (after-hours)...
