The Gaslight retains much of the charm of its single-family past, while offering contemporary and artistic touches not typically seen in a B&B. Rooms range from a crow's nest with peeled-log furniture and Navajo-print fabrics to a more traditional suite with Arts and Crafts–style furnishings, a fireplace, and stained-glass windows. The large common areas evoke a gentlemen's club, with deer mounts overlooking oak wainscoting, and leather chairs. There's room to move
around in here, including a lovely backyard and two decks with fabulous views. The Gaslight also has something few other B&Bs can claim: a seasonal heated pool out back.

Right from the beginning I was made to feel right at home, the art and ambiance in this place is just spectacular. My Suite was beautiful and comfortable, with a view of the city, fireplace, contemporary furniture and a very comfortable Queen bed. This was a business trip for myself but will be back soon with my wife to enjoy all the romantic pluses the Gaslight had to offer.

Other than the rude demeanor of the innkeeper upon arrival and departure, and the horribly sqeeky bed (in the best room they had) that lead to our early departure, the b&b was nice. The pool was refreshing and the artwork eyecatching. Definately stay in the annex building as it includes parking. The "breakfast" (coffee, croissants, and fruit) would have been nicer had the table been big enough to accomodate the guests of the main house and annex building,
as this b&b caters to numbers and does not anticipate the needs of its guests. We arrived late (but before the office closes...6 pm) due to crossings at the Canadian border and were not greeted with warm charm but rather cold instructions, even though we called to let them know where we were. Being a Seattle tradition and highly recommeded, we expected a higher level of service and were surprisingly disappointed. Unfortunately the people are what make a nice stay great when it's a b&b. Since there are so many, next time around we'll try a b&b with one house, a friendlier attitude and a hot breakfast.
