Wonderful experience. Charming bed and breakfast with nice grounds and a great location for exploring Olympia and the surrounding area. Rooms have so much character, in a very good way and the host is so helpful, friendly and full of fun stories.

A cute bed and breakfast experience, thank you Nathan and Casey. For those reading this, if you don’t come here and get the fresh pear sorbet (part of the amazing three course breakfast) you’re going to regret it. Great lattes as well, thank you Lauren.

We stayed here for our Valentines Day celebration in 2024 and loved it. It is close to all of the amenities that we were looking for like parks, restaurants, and stores. The Inn Keepers were extremely friendly and welcoming for our entire stay. The building is beautiful and well kept. Breakfast was amazing with cranberry scones, pear sorbet, and Marion berry French toast. Coffee was just as good as any of the local shops and we would definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our unique stay at Swantown Inn. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating to our schedule. We instantly felt welcome as if visiting old friends. The Victorian house was a great setting to such a special experience and breakfast was delicious. Would definitely recommend and would plan to stay again in the future.

If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind Olympia experience, you definitely need to stay at the Swantown Inn.This bed & breakfast is an absolute gem and located only a mile from downtown. The house is a beautiful 140 year old Victorian mansion with a life and personality all it’s own. The beds are big and comfortable and every corner is filled with gorgeous antiques. The innkeepers are warm and kind and their children are absolutely charming. When I visited in December the vibes were very relaxing and calm.I had the most delicious breakfast of decadent stuffed french toast with marionberry syrup and a perfectly made oat milk latte. I really appreciated the innkeepers’ enthusiasm to cater to my dietary preferences.They also host events like weddings in their ballroom, and there is honey available from bees kept on the property.My stay here was absolutely priceless and truly very special. I can’t wait to return.

I stayed here with my mom about a year ago when I was visiting Olympia prior to moving. The owners are lovely people, gave me wonderful recommendations for places to check out and really made me feel welcomed before moving to the city. The rooms are clean and have lots of personality. I highly recommend staying here over some of the local corporate hotel chains in the area.

We were in town for a wedding. The Swantown Inn was great to hang out in the mornings before festivities. It had character, a puzzle in progress to occupy my wife and I, great breakfasts, very comfortable room. We’d definitely stay there again.

Very Quaint, Historical Inn with tons of CHARM! We had a wonderful 3 night stay in November 2023. We lucked out and weather was great although, I would have been happy just hanging out at the inn. Food was great and the hosts were so accomadating. They helped us with directions to a great place to hike and great restaurants to eat dinner at. All in all a great place to celebrate my birthday.

We had an amazing stay here! The breakfasts are delicious and perfectly portioned. The rooms are wonderful and comfortable, although for clarity we only stayed two nights and didn’t try out the shower. They have great recommendations of activities to do, both nearby and elsewhere in Olympia. I definitely recommend it!

My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend at Swantown Inn for a romantic getaway (and an early birthday celebration). We enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to a return visit. Nathan and Casey are fabulous hosts and we enjoyed their delicious breakfasts, the bed was incredibly comfortable (I slept better than I have in a long time), and the location is great for being able to explore the Olympia downtown area on foot. Thank you for a fantastic weekend!

Swantown Inn was the perfect stay for our Olympia trip. Nathan and Casey were super responsive and they even picked us up from the train station, which was a huge load off our plates since our train got in kind of late. The three course breakfast was AMAZING, and I loved how it was different every day. (Probably my favorite part of our stay, even though it was super filling so I could only eat one serving…). The room was clean and comfy and I loved the bathroom and the big clawfoot tub. It’s located close to downtown, and within walking distance of some lovely trails! Casey and Nathan were so kind, helpful (there’s not much they don’t know about the area, so definitely make use of their expertise) and some of the loveliest people to be around. 5/5 recommend this gem!
