About Greenlake Guest House

We offer 5 comfortable & freshly updated rooms at our Seattle bed and breakfast that have private baths and TV/DVD; most rooms also have jetted tubs and gas fireplaces. Don't miss our extensive DVD collection of Oscar winning "Best Picture" movies!

Choose from several options during our menu-based gourmet breakfasts served each morning at our Seattle B&B. You will also receive great Seattle coffee, tea, soda, bottled water, fruit, and our fresh-baked cookies available around the clock. We are also now offering a complimentary wine & beer hour Monday-Friday.

Stay as connected as you like, with our guest computer or complimentary wireless Internet. Enjoy a quick jog around the lake, right out our front door, and walk to many nearby shops and restaurants in our central location. We are always happy to help you with warm and personal service to make the most of your stay here.

Green Lake Park is a beloved favorite of all Seattle, comparable to Central Park in New York City. The park's amenities include 3 miles of walking/biking trails around the lake's perimeter, as well as swimming, ball fields, tennis courts, a theater, and a playground. Bicycle, roller blade, and boat rentals are available nearby. The neighborhood is a wonderful oasis in the heart of the city, near the University of Washington, Ballard, and the Woodland Park Zoo. Downtown Seattle and the famous Pike Place Market are just a 10 minute (5 mile) drive away.

Seattle has excellent public transportation and Green Lake is served by the E-Line Rapid Ride bus to downtown and the #45, #62, and #26 buses. The closest light rail station is at the University of Washington and can be accessed by the #45 bus.

Accommodations Innkeepers

We are Blayne and Julie McAferty. We opened Greenlake Guest House, our Seattle, WA bed and breakfast, in 2004 and are continuing to make improvements to the accommodations in this 1920 home.

Blayne is an engineer at Boeing, and Julie is a former labor & delivery nurse. We also have 2  grown boys and a new daughter-in-law. To our previous guests: we are sorry to share that our "inn dog," Emma, passed away from cancer complications in July 2015.

We love to cook and entertain and have always dreamed of owning a bed and breakfast. Seattle has been our home for many years, and we look forward to helping you enjoy your stay here.



"Thank you so much for the wonderful hospitality. The beds were scrumptious, the food delectable, and your family just delightful. We so enjoyed staying in your wonderful house and meeting you, Emma, and the other guests. Keep up the good work!"
