We are so lucky we were here!!
Serendipty...we loved the privacy, your gardens, your gracious hospitality and the special suite. In fact, we were so happy here we hardly left, except to visit the Bellevue Botanical gardens after luncheon with Miss Claire. Then ur dinner/cooking class with Philippe Naud was so much fun...and so delicious. What a wonderful group we had, with people from all over. We congradulate you Nancy on creating a most special place in our world.
Thank you for everything, we shall return , but in the interim, we will be certain to spread the word: L'Auberge is a true Getaway/Hideway!! (Who cares what's the weather?" Robert and Carlina, Naples, Florida

Merci Madame! Excellent, thoughtful attention to detail! The continental breakfast reminded me of our Honeymoon stay in Venasque, France so thank you for that. We will be back! Au revoir pour maintenant.
10/2/2011from Brian & Desirae Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. You were above and beyond from what we expected. The treats you left us were excellant and breakfast was delicious. Thanks again!
Never felt truly comfortable.
Stayed using a package that included a night in the "Honeymoon Suite," a bottle of "Vin Rousseaux", and a massage. Added on the country breakfast (30 bucks a head).
The good: quiet grounds, large room, large bath with jacuzzi and large shower (and bidet!).
The OK: breakfast (overpriced and lacking advertised items); the wine (it was not Vin Rousseaux but a generic Spanish sparkling wine); the massage (conducted on a folding table in a spare bedroom with harsh lighting) .
The bad: the room smelled of mothballs. Our hostess was a tad grumpy and acted put out by any request. The windows in the bath lacked shades or blinds above waist level which was creepy because of the public patio 15 feet away.
Our French Country Inn is located on 5 very secluded forested acres. True, as the client said, it is very quiet and each one of our suites has it's own private pateo...where NO ONE walks by...we advertise we are private, secluded and truly we are. Our accommodations are by invitation only, we would NEVER jeopardize the privacy of our guests. We have no such thing as a public patio area. The curtains are at the neck level of most folks, designed expressly to allow the trees, garden, sun and the stars to light up the bathroom. Our suites are very large rooms, with large windows. We want our clients to feel surrounded by the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. We serve, as we advertise a Vin Mousseaux/sparkling wine. We have a specific room for our relaxing therapies..we have massage tables and we use low soft lighting with melodius music. And that is the truth folks!
Like staying with your favorite aunt!.
We stayed with Nancy for a quick weekend and realized we should have made it longer! Her lovely home is so comfortable it almost seems like you're staying with a relative.
From the addictive pastries in the morning to the soft French music playing in our room at the turn down service, we found that we couldn't have asked for more. The beautiful grounds made for the most perfect and romantic setting.
We also took the cooking class and cannot remember having so much fun. We've already duplicated some of the recipes at home and feel so inspired to try out more!
Thank you Nancy! We hope to see you again soon!
Quiet and secluded yet near many wineries.
What a delightful weekend we just spent at the Auberge! We were in Woodinville to taste wine during their Passport Weekend and to celebrate my husband's birthday. Nancy, the Auberge's owner upgraded us to the Chef's Apartment and provided beautiful desserts each evening as well as a basket of warm homemade pastries to go along with our self-catered breakfasts .
The grounds are beautiful and the location felt secluded yet we were within minutes of Woodinville's many wineries and restaurants. Just a mention of Nancy and the Auberge to our waitress at the Barking Frog prompted a visit by chef Joshua to our table. Such gracious hospitality all weekend-long!
We look forward to returning to participate in the cooking classes and to taste more wine.
A romantic and business property alike. On my visit to L`auberge, I was pleasently surprised to have been upgraded to the honeymoon suite without asking. Two shower head shower, jacuzzi tub, with gorgeous garden views.The owner Nancy greeted us with utmost charm and graciousness. This romantic property is one of a kind and absolutely charming. It truly is suitable for all occassions. The main house can easily accommodate events, such as; wine tastings, dinners, weddings, corporate think tank meetings and more. In the upscale hotel business, I am not easily impressed with upscale properties these days. L`auberge Edge Seattle did. I wish I could have stayed another night. My first call when back in Woodinville, will be Nancy at L`auberge.
THE most romantic getaway in the Seattle area!.
The little woman and I truly enjoyed our romantic weekend at ?L'Auberge at The Edge of Seattle? in nearby Woodinville, Wa. Proprietress, Nancy Gates, greeted us at the expansive entryway. A charming woman who instantaneously set us at ease and welcomed us into her beautiful home. I was very impressed with the entryway and living room. Decorated with antique slot machines, original art and some of the most beautiful hand-woven Moroccan carpets I have seen. Nancy led us to the ?Honeymoon Suite? just down the heated tile hallway. The King-size bed looks out on the beautiful grounds and patio. The fireplace was ready for us with a supply of kindling and wood. A decanter of homemade wine was on the nightstand. The large spa bath was wonderful and appointed with candles, soaps, shampoo and cream rinses. The walk-in shower had two showerheads and all the hot water needed. We enjoyed magnificent homemade candy and cookies that were on the table in the sitting area before the bed.
Dinner was served in the elegant dining room and was the most formal dinner I have ever been served. Full service fine china, silverware, embroidered tablecloth and individual wine glasses for each wine. Each course from soup, salad, entree and desert was excellent. Nancy was faultless in her preparation and service. We were treated like royalty. Breakfast was served the next morning in our room in the same elegant manner. Fresh fruit, Belgian waffles, juice and coffee.
My wife and I will return to L'Auberge at The Edge of Seattle whenever we need a romantic getaway from the stress of our busy lives.
Best Bed and Breakfast and Cooking Class. Since my wife and I had never stayed at a real bed and breakfast before we had no idea what to expect. Our hostess, Nancy Douglas, was very accommodating and helpful even though we had to arrive very late (11:00 pm) she said just to call when we were about an hour out and she would have the room ready for us with the door unlocked and to just check in in the morning. We did not know that the preparing of the room included warm homemade pastries, chilled sparkling wine and a beautifully appointed room. Since we are extremely early risers we did not avail ourselves of the breakfast available but I am sure it was amazing. We came for the French Crab Feast with Chef Adam Hoffman of Rovers Restaurant in Seattle. My wife uses a very apt word for our cooking/dining experience?awesome! The meal was spectacular in itself, but to have been a part of its creation was special indeed. Chef Hoffman allowed us to be as hands on as we wanted and guided us at every turn. We started with some of the most beautiful live locally caught crabs and ended with a meal to rival any restaurant anywhere at any price. Then there was the wine. Each person was asked to bring a bottle of his/her favorite wine (white in this case) to share with our small group, these were very special selections and were greatly enjoyed. All the while our hostess, Nancy, was there to make sure that we had the time of our lives. We plan to make this a favorite place to stay even if there is no class scheduled as the cost of the room is very comparable to that of a Marriott with so much more. If you plan to be in the Seattle area you can do no better than to stay at L?Auberge?.take the cooking class if it is available, you will not be disappointed. Jesse and Nancy Griffin, Walla Walla, WA
Bed and Breakfast Inn.
On Memorial Day Weekend I had the fortune to travel North of Seattle and stay at L'Auberge Edge of Seattle, located at 16400 216 Avenue N.E. Woodinville, Washington 98077, (425) 260-6213, hosted by Nancy Douglas. The property is breathtaking, quiet with mocking birds singing amongst the needled trees.
The rooms/suite was comfortable, relaxing with all the amenities one only hopes to experience. The bed was one of the mos t comfortable with down comforters and pillows. Plush robes for the bath kept one warm and comfortable after a shower with all the small amenities not usually found. Al l French and done in a true style. Ms. Douglas? roots in France is shown throughout the house.
The wine, the coffee, light dinner, fresh warmed baked sweet breads in the morning and the upbeat personality of Ms. Douglas makes one feel as if you are at a home of a friend who enjoys making one fill comfortable.
The experience at L'Auberge Edge of Seattle is not replicated in many inns/hotels that try to create what Ms. Douglas does naturally. It is worth the drive through beautiful country to experience this inn. Thank you Ms. Douglas for your service.
