      Caring and hospitable reception in the Chambered Nautilus


      My husband and I recently stayed at the Chambered Nautilus B&B when helping our daughter, a student at UW to get settled in an apartment for the upcoming academic year. The staff was courteous, friendly and helpful, the breakfast delicious. There was always coffee, tea, fruit etc. available for the guests in the living room, which was also full of interesting reading material, including daily newspapers ( like the NY Times!)

      Our attic room was very spacious with nice views and a little seating area on the back deck. A cosy gas stove was easy to use and very effective.

      We hope to stay there again during our next visit in Seattle


      Fantastic B&B


      This B&B was excellent - the rooms were beautiful, the bed was comfortable, the location was fantastic, the hosts were very friendly and more than accomodating. I would not hesistate to stay here again, and recommend it to anyone. There is also a fabulous italian restaurant within walking distance that is worth checking out (Ciao Bella). Thanks for a wonderful visit to Seattle!

      What a Great Place


      We spent five nights at The Chambered Nautilus B & B in mid-September. It is a beautiful spotless house, with a very good breakfast each morning, and always a supply of cookies, coffee, tea and

      fresh fruit, with a fire in the fire-place each night.

      Our room-The Rose Chamber- had a great queen bed, private bathroom, and a balcony.

      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back.

      Chambered Nautilus B&B is fabulous


      I just got back from my second stay at the Chambered Nautilus Bed & Breakfast on 22nd Ave in the University District of Seattle. We were actually headed to Vancouver and at the very last minute ended up going to Seattle. We had stayed at the B&B last year for five days, and were impressed by the cleanliness, lovely furnishings, and genuine friendliness of our hosts, Joyce and Steve. We gave them a quick call to see if they had room, and luckily we were able to stay in the Scalloped Chamber, complete with antique furnishings, a fireplace, and private deck. The breakfasts are creative and delicious, fresh cookies, fruit and coffee available all day - and what a great part of Seattle! We walked to tons of shopping, museums, cool restaurants - and it's just a quick hop to the I-5 to the rest of Seattle's wonderful attractions. We've stayed at B&Bs in many states, and this charming home is our favorite - we give it our utmost recommendation. We're even going to try and make it an annual visit with our friends. Signed, Pete and Kathy.

      Lovely stay at the Chambered Nautilus


      My husband and I just finished a four night stay at the Chambered Nautilus B&B. We had a lovely time. Joyce and her staff were very friendly and helpful. Joyce was a great resource for information about Seattle logistics and directions.

      Our room was very nice, well kept and clean - and surprisingly large for an urban B&B.

      Breakfasts were very good with great service and good company from the other guests. Since we had a early flight, Joyce even provided us with fruit and muffins to take on the plane.

      Secret gem for business travelers


      For any frequent flier to the pacific northwest, the chambered nautilus is a true home away from home. With gourmet breakfasts that include an outstanding homemade granola and fresh baked cookies to snack on, this Inn is a must for any business traveler to the Seattle area. The Inn itself is cozy and warm, the rooms are suberb- be sure to check out the crow's chamber! It is located in the U district of Seattle and is convienient to all sites of city as well as great shopping at the University Village. Although some may shy away from a B&B, the diverse guests and incredible service level of the Inn keepers and staff make you feel like you are at home. It is rare to find a place that makes you feel this at home in a major city! If looking for things to do, places to eat- check with staff on duty- great in house recommendations.

      Seattle's Best Kept Secret


      I have been staying monthly at the Chambered Nautilus B & B in the U district of Seattle for over 4 years. As a business traveler, I need phone lines, email access, t.v. and a clean, safe environment. The Chambered Nautilus offers all of that. In addition, my favorite room, the Crow's nest includes a cozy fireplace perfect on a cold Seattle night with a big bed and high thread count sheets; All rooms have a private bath and lots of extra little touches such as current books and magazines. As if that isn't enough, breakfast each morning is an absolute delight and I make sure to never book a meeting that causes me to miss breakfast; The granola starts off the morning followed by several varying options, all of which are terrific! Personal favorites are either the stuffed french toast w/ orange sauce or the ginger pancakes-yummy.

      The best thing about the Chambered Nautilus is returning every month and feeling like I am coming to visit friends vs. staying in a cold hotel where no one knows me. Over the years, I have returned on vacation w/ family and directed co-workers to this wonderful bed and breakfast. They have a room suited for everyone and it is a haven for a romantic weekend getaway as well as for the weary traveler who just wants a good nights sleep.

      Our Romantic Anniversary Getaway


      The Chambered Nautilus Bed and Breakfast Inn was absolutely beautiful. Our room, The Scallop Chamber, was on the top floor with a goregous view. It was warm and romantic, and yet you felt comfortable and cozy.

      Our hostess, Joyce Schulte, made sure that everything was to our taste. My husband is vegan, so she provided us with a special breakfast every morning just for him.

      Our room was always done up neat and whatever time we got back from our adventures there would be tea,coffee, cookies and fruit waiting for us.

      I would strongly recommend The Chambered Nautilus Bed and Breakfast Inn to anyone or any couple visiting Seattle.

      Good visit at the Chambered Naulius


      We recently visited the Chambered Nautilus. Joyce was a great host who was very eager to help her guest visit the great city of Seattle. In addition, the breakfeasts were very good (and filling). Banana Soup and Blueberries.

      The house was very nice and less than 1/2 mile from the Unv of Wash. Although the room we stayed in was smaller than I would have still had a nice private outdoor porch.

      Overall Joyce was great and I would recommend staying at this B & B

      Loved the Chambered Nautilus!


      My boyfriend and I stayed at this wonderful B&B for a week this March and absolutely loved it! We booked the university suite and were thrilled with everything it had to offer. There was a nice kitchen, dining room, living room and a very cozy bedroom. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. Each morning, the great inkeeper, Joyce, made yummy breakfasts consisting of granola, juice and either quiche or pancakes. She was extremely helpful with any questions we had and made our stay very enjoyable. An added nice touch is cookies and tea in the main house any time of the day for the taking!

There's really no point hiking up something when you can't appreciate the views. Luckily by the time we arrived the sun had come out and burnt off all the cloud. It turned out to be a beautiful day.
