We're a licensed, inspected, and approved bed and breakfast (9 Cranes Inn) in a great neighborhood. Our four clean, stylish, and comfortable rooms have private baths, flat-screen TVs, and full gourmet breakfast included in rate. Our rooftop retreat, the Ballard View room, has a huge private deck with view of the Olympic Mountains, large jetted tub and separate shower, two sinks, comfy robes, and coffee maker in room. Access to guest lounge with small fridge.
Our licensed B&B -- 9 Cranes Inn -- is a well kept Craftsman home with modern amenities. Breakfast is served in the dining room each morning from 8 to 9:30, with freshly brewed coffee ready at 7. You can come and go as you please, and interact with other guests as much or as little as you please.
Guests may enter and exit at will, with use of the main floor living room, dining room, and front porch (in addition to their own rooms). There also is a guest lounge on the second floor with a small refrigerator, hot drink station, wine glasses, and computer. Guests DO NOT have access to the kitchen, nor may they entertain non-guests on the premises.
Innkeeper serves breakfast each day, and checks in all guests except for late self check ins. Happy to help as much or as little as guests like; can recommend restaurants, activities, and attractions. Innkeeper and husband live on-site.
