Built in 1910 by British-born Francis Harper for his wife Pontine and six children the interior of the house was remodeled in its original Craftsman spirit in the 1990s. The deeply rich stained woodwork holds over 100 years of stories and history of the families who have lived here, after whom our rooms are named: the Harpers, Clarks, Frosts, and Odekirks. Margaret Hayes and her family have lived here since 1987. In the desire to share the gem of a house, she has converted the residence into a Bed and Breakfast.
Each comfy room at the Gatewood features it’s own private bathroom, luxurious microfiber bedding and cotton Turkish towels, complementary wireless internet and works by local artists.
The Gatewood cannot accommodate children under the age of eight years.

“FABULOUS! My home in Seattle has been found. Everyone who stays here needs to tell all – this B&B is the best in the West.”
“This was a truly lovely place to spend our weekend. The house, the amenities, and the setting were exquisite. Hope to be back for another stay before long! Loved the art too!”

“The new Gatewood promises to be a haven for weary and energetic travelers for another 5 generations. The food and accommodations are almost as warm and welcoming as the staff and proprietors. We are so pleased to be here and we shall return.”
