This was a great B&B! Comfortable and inviting without being "cutesy". We stayed here early November 2010, and actually had our marriage ceremony in the main living room! From the moment we first contacted her, Tina was extremely excited about hosting the wedding ceremony. She met with us before hand to organize a plan for the morning, and was extremely accommodating - even when our guests were a half hour early! After the ceremony we all had brunch in the dining room. Brunch was lovely and Tina's croissants are amazing. We had planned on eating breakfast out with the family the day after our wedding, but waking up to the wonderful smell of fresh baked croissants compelled us to have a little bite to eat before leaving. After brunch we took pictures in and around the house, and they are wonderful. The house is beautiful, and the breakfast was delicious, but Tina was what made our stay truly special. From the moment we arrived we felt like friends. Tina could not have been more helpful or accommodating. The "Master Suite" has a cozy balcony over-looking the front yard and street, and the bathroom has to be seen to be believed: fabulous walk-in shower with all of the trimmings, spacious marble tub. European styling with attention to detail and a cozy atmosphere make this a lovely B&B.
My wife and I do a lot of traveling and have been to a lot of B&B's. Mildred's is rated right at the top!! It is a beautiful Victorian home right off the park, and next to public transportation to downtown Seattle. The full course breakfast was awesome. The owner was very polite and very friendly. I recommend it!!
The new VI menu is full of fresh local ingredients. Their outdoor seating and 1/2 off small plates happy hour makes it the best place to go from 4-6 in downtown Seattle. If you're lucky you will even get a seat with a view of the water.
