 Garden Oasis in the heart of
Historic Old Town

Built in 1910, the Bottger Mansion of Old Town, our Albuquerque bed and breakfast, is in historic Old Town Albuquerque, New Mexico.

What is included when you stay with us?

    * the best gourmet breakfast in Albuquerque, served in two courses with fresh fruit, the most delicious coffee in town, and a served, hot entrée
    * parking, wireless internet, and snacks and beverages
    * microfiber robes, cable TV, private baths, telephones and air conditioning in every room
    * entertainment provided by finches, hummingbirds, mourning doves and other birds in our flower-filled courtyard

This historic house is shaded by massive 100-year old trees and is just steps away from shops, excellent restaurants, galleries, museums and parks. Nearby attractions include the Botanic Garden, Rio Grande Zoo, Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, University of New Mexico, Route 66, and much more, at the base of the magnificent Sandia Mountains.

Albuquerque is a great home base for easy day trips a little farther away--Santa Fe, Acoma Pueblo, the Salinas National Monument, the Turquoise Trail, Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, and the lava tubes at El Malpais near Grants.

Hot air balloon rides, magnificent golf courses, horseback riding, hiking, skiing, concerts and festivals--so much to do and so little time! Bring your camera for a week and you’ll leave your heart forever.

Stay in our Seattle bed and breakfast, and enjoy the charm and comfort of yesterday, with all the convenience of today.

Shields of red and white can be seen on the round stained glass windows as one passes through the gates of the Bacon Mansion – the leading bed and breakfast in Seattle, Washington. Built in 1909 by Cecil Bacon on Seattle's Capitol Hill, this classic Edwardian-style Tudor shows not only the trademark family crest, but a fine preservation of original woods, chandelier with 3,000 crystals, 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. Fortunately, Bacon Mansion's massive walls 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 for all who enter.

The main Guest House, consisting of 8,000 square feet of living space, is divided between four levels. A spacious outside patio leads to the historic Carriage House. The Mansion's guest rooms are available nightly, as well as the "day rooms," which are available for social and business events. Along with delicious breakfasts, which include 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’s commercial districts, you will be sure to enjoy shopping and access to Seattle's many attractions.
