I’m probably one of the few people who like having access to a full kitchen when I travel.  Don’t get me wrong I love going out for a great meal.  But when you want to travel well for less having a full kitchen will help you make the most out of your travel dollar.  Staying in the Garden Room at Eagles View B&B provides you with an amazing view of Puget Sound and a full kitchen.  Not to mention all the other amenities like a fireplace and sauna.

Just 9 miles from downtown Seattle, Eagles View B&B is close enough to keep you near the action but far enough for you to enjoy the quiet of the Puget Sound.  Easily accessible by car, bus, or light rail, the Seattle Airport is a mere 4 miles away.

Switzerland is heaven on earth. But as all good things, it is really expensive. These B&B suggestions seem cost effective and at the same time ooze the spirit of Switzerland in their ambience.
