Some of our recent guests have posted reviews on Trip Advisor, Home Away, and Flipkey.

Here’s the latest comment I found in the guest book – from Maureen and Dan from St. Paul:

“Dear Annie, you are the most thoughtful and gracious host – and we are so grateful!
We appreciated the peaceful evenings on the deck with its amazing views. The hot tub, extra comfy bed, fully stocked kitchen…every need and want provided for. A wonderful place to stay – and we don’t want to leave!
Thank you for your kindness. It was an honor to be guests in your beautiful cottage.”

“We greatly enjoyed our stay here. It was everything and  more than what we hoped for.  As we were planning our honeymoon we wanted to find a place with the kind of atmosphere that would allow for us to draw closer together as we start this new journey of our lives joined together. We feel we have found that place here with you.  Thank you so much for war greetings, continuous hospitality and your pleasantly discreet presence. We are planning to recommend your place to all our friends and family.”

Danny and Esther

“Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful and cozy little cottage with us!  It was the perfect getaway for my husband and me after being separated for 9 months while I was doing Reserve duty.  It was a wonderful home to come back to after a day of seeing the sights in the area.  Your hospitality and kindness made our stay here even more special – spending each evening looking up at the stars (and/or clouds!) from the hot tub was super relaxing too – we slept like babies after that!”

Claudia and Bill

“My husband and I stayed at this private cottage for our 40th wedding anniversary. It was more than the pictures protrayed. Annie was a wonder in assisting us with directions but also allowing us privacy. It was close to the airport and a short ride to Pike Street Market. The property was very well maintained and very quaint. We loved this cottage and would certainly recommend it to our family and friends. Annie, thank you for sharing such a nice cottage with travelers.”

Jake and Danna

“Just had the pleasure of spending 4 nights in Annie Phillips’ charming Soundview Cottage Bed and Breakfast! What a delightful, homey, romantic and tasteful place to stay near Seattle. With it’s beautiful views over the waters of Puget Sound, the cozy little one bedroom home immediately put us in the spirit of peace and relaxation. The hot tub was perfect as the soft rain fell and the quaint kitchen was a delightful place to serve up delicious private meals that fit our personal gourmet tastes to a tee. Annie is the perfect innkeeper, respecting our privacy, while providing thoughtful touches that personalized our experience. Our stay far exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend Soundview to all travelers coming to the Seattle area.”


“Thanks for sharing this hidden gem with others.  The website doesn’t do this place justice.  Truly fantastic!  The refrigerator and cupboards were thoughtfully stocked.  The view more amazing than I dreamed, and the serenity and quiet atmosphere sealed the deal for us.  We loved the place, and look forward to seeing you again.”

“Larry and I had such a great time in your bed and breakfast. The view was spectacular and the cottage was perfect. We enjoyed a blissful weekend of complete relaxation and privacy and it was the perfect retreat for our anniversary. Thank you so much for everything, it meant to the world to us! Helping me have our wedding cake topper delivered and having Julie find it in the fridge when we arrived was utterly priceless, I can’t thank you enough. Good luck, best wishes, and we will certainly see you again.”

Jules and Larry

“Thank you for your warm hospitality – we felt right at home. The surroundings made us feel cozy and familiar! You have a beautiful setting and it is wonderful that you share it with others. Thank you also for the great food selections – you are very thoughtful. We hope to return – as we really have fallen in love with Washington! Thanks once more.”

“Thank you for making our honeymoon so very memorable. We watched the sunset from the deck and the stars from the hot tub. We enjoyed this B&B so much that you have worked so hard on. Your thoughtfulness made our stay a dream come true.”

Patty & Steve
Bellevue, WA

“I knew this home would be special, after 3,000 miles travel through 5 states. We were ready for a rest and somewhere to relax. The view was spectacular and the bed is to die for. The weather was perfect and we would have loved to stay longer. When you are a long way from where you live, a little bit of home is just what you need. Thanks for making this a memorable part of our vacation.”

Kindest regards,

“Thank you for everything. This is a wonderful place. I was a little nervous because this was our Seattle honeymoon, but no worries! The view is magnificent! Thank you for your hospitality, availability, and extra special touches (food, candles, etc.) We will certainly return here for an anniversary or special occasion. Thanks again.”

Micah and Nicole

“Thank you for a couple of days of paradise perched up on the hill and watching boats go by. I feel fully refreshed and ready to jump back into my life! This place is really a treasure!”

Seattle, Washington

“Great B & B! We stay at B&Bs all over and this one really rates a “10”. Great Bed – Great View & Lovely hosts. Thank you for making our visit to Seattle very special.”

“What a wonderful place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! The view was spectacular, the food was fabulous, the hospitality was gracious, and the weather was perfect! Thanks for making a special occasion even more memorable.”

Alyson & Gary
Hamden, Connecticut

“This was a wonderful place to relax after a hectic day working – so nice to “come home to” the view – the bed so comfortable, and the food! I could go on about the peace and quiet – yet so convenient to the city and work! I have enjoyed my week here so much, it didn’t even seem like work!”

Chicago, Illinois

“After hiking the Pacific coast, it was wonderful reflecting on our experience in the hot tub. The visits from the cats made us feel at home. After the sandy beaches of the Pacific, the cozy bed here made for an amazing night’s rest. Thank you oodles and more for the delicious fruit cups and tasty raisin toast. This was the perfect place to end an amazing trip to Washington.”
