The Bacon Mansion

With 11 fantastic guest rooms, the Bacon Mansion in Seattle, WA is a great choice if you’re looking for a bed & breakfast to stay at in the Pacific Northwest. Located on Seattle’s Capitol Hill the mansion was built in 1909 by Cecil Bacon, a capitalist and chemical engineer who partnered with James Galbraith to form a successful raw materials distributorship in 1899.

The 8,000 square foot main house at the Bacon Mansion is sure to impress, and the more intimate Carriage House is available for those wanting a more private enclave. All rooms feature a solid selection of amenities and each room is unique and inviting in its own right.

We wouldn’t be good bacographers if we didn’t point out a potentially off-putting flaw of the Bacon Mansion. While they do serve a hearty continental breakfast every morning, their menu is curiously devoid of the meat candy of which the bed & breakfast bears the name. That’s right — no bacon.

So, if you’re traveling to Seattle anytime soon, consider staying at the Bacon Mansion. Keep in mind, however, that the mansion is strictly BYOB (Bring Your Own Bacon).

    BYOBP (Bring Your Own Bacon Pillows) as well, I’d assume.

    That reminds me of the Simpsons episode when Otto goes into a store called “Stoner’s Pot Palace” only to find out it’s a kitchenware store. Walking out, he said disgustedly, “That’s false advertising!”

    My wife and I try to stay as B&Bs when possible. I’ve got mixed feelings about this one. On one hand it IS bacony, which is good. On the other hand, there is no officially-sanctioned bacon within, which is bad.

    I’m with you Lars, mixed feelings due to no officially-sanctioned bacon. Someone out there should start a Google map for road-weary travelers who are also bacon lovers. Bed & Breakfast & Bacon lodging maybe?
