To many travelers, the term b&b brings to mind visions of colonial furniture, lace curtains and Grandfather clocks. That’s why you stay in a b&b, no? For the charm?
Well other versions of the b&b exist.
I found one in our Seattle vacation rentals.
This modern home dubbed Chelsea Station, which is split into four apartments, is the city’s answer to the more formal, historic b&bs you’re accustomed to. With its spa-like bathrooms with seamless glass doors, kitchenette with stainless steel touches and sleek patio (with nary a wicker lounge chair in sight), it’s the hipper, more stylized solution to your traveling needs.
One former renter noted that walking into the home was like “stepping into a magazine makeover.”
The spot’s proximity to downtown Seattle, Pioneer Square, Pike Place Market allows travelers to take advantage of Seattle’s reputation as a walking city. Don’t forget to take snapshots of the Rose Garden across the street, along with companions feeding giraffes at the adjacent Woodland Park Zoo.
And just in case you’re wondering, one mainstay of b&b remains: breakfast. It wouldn’t be a b&b otherwise, right?
