There’s certainly no shortage of amazing places to rest your head in Washington. And while our best known hotels like The Davenport in Spokane and The Edgewater in Seattle are wonderful, sometimes a unique (and more intimate) inn experience is what you need.
For those times, we recommend one of these eight spots that remain somewhat off the radar:
1. Red Caboose Getaway B&B, Sequim
Staying in your own private caboose with queen feather beds, whirlpool tubs and in-room coffee is as unique and amazing of an experience as it sounds.
2. Cameo Heights Mansion, Touchet
This gorgeous treasure is located off Highway 12 between Kennewick and Walla Walla. Between the seven themed suites, The Vine restaurant and the nearby wineries, Cameo Heights is a destination in itself.
3. Turtleback Farm Inn, Orcas Island
This old country farmhouse has received national attention and won many awards, yet it remains hidden away in the San Juan Islands, sometimes overlooked by both locals and tourists. Those who do book a room at The Farmhouse or The Orchard House can expect a relaxing, tranquil stay.
4. Katy’s Inn, LaConnor
Katy's Inn is a historic home that dates back to the late 1800s, but with all the modern comforts you'd expect from a bed and breakfast.
5. Abendblume, Leavenworth
This charming inn is close to all the restaurants and shops of Commercial Street, but just far enough from the beaten path not to get as much recognition as some of Leavenworth's other hotels. Those who do find Abendblume are never disappointed, especially at breakfast time.
6. Bacon Mansion, Seattle
This Edwardian style Tudor has been standing strong since 1909, tucked into the quieter corner of Capitol Hill near Volunteer Park.
7. Pacific Beach Inn, Pacific Beach
Staying at a hotel right on the beach usually costs a fortune, but this casual little inn offers ocean views for under $100 (slightly more during peak season). It's clean and comfortable and you'll have easy access to miles of beautiful beach.
8. The Odell House, Spokane
Located in Spokane's historic Browne's Addition, the Odell House is a wonderful place to stay and costs half the price of most downtown hotels.
