Seattle Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Free-standing cottage - studio with 1 bath (sleeps 2)
Small Space, Big Style, Modernist Sensibility. Tucked into a lush courtyard, this cottage in Seattle’s renowned Harvard-Belmont Historic District is a charming little gem. The interior of the 320-sq ft cottage was completely deconstructed and renovated in the winter of 2010. The owners then gave the compact space a thorough test run by living in it for six months.
*The cottage comfortably accommodates two guests with a queen-size bed. An extra guest is possible in the twin sleeper sofa. There is a well-appointed kitchen, three-quarter bath, washer and dryer, secure wi-fi connection and dimmable lights throughout. A towel warmer and wood-burning fireplace help to take the chill off drizzly Seattle days. When the sun is shining, the gazebo in the courtyard is the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine.
Dedicated off-street parking allows you to leave your car and explore Capitol Hill on foot. Within a half mile you will find espresso bars, hand-forged donuts, a ramen shop, fine dining, an independent movie theater, a public library, gas, groceries and tree-lined streets of gracious, early 20th century homes. The neighborhood boasts the city’s only residential Landmark District, which is featured on numerous architectural walking tours. The location on the west slope of Capitol Hill also makes this cottage convenient to the vibrant South Lake Union neighborhood, home to the REI flagship store, the Center for Wooden Boats, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Whole Foods Market, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Cortiva Institute (where superb, one-hour massages can be had for $35 in the student clinic).

Hello! We are Erik and Pamela, both natives of the Pacific Northwest. After meeting in Seattle, we moved to New York and Washington, D.C. and eventually decided to return home in 2008. We love fussing over details relating to this vacation rental, when we are not working at our day jobs as an environmental attorney and freelance photographer/marketing director for an organic farm on Lopez Island. We adore biking, skiing, fishing and trading notes with pretty much anyone on the vibrant restaurant scenes in Seattle, Portland and Vancouver B.C. We also love renovating homes (we are on our fifth in 11 years). There's just something addictive about the process of creating something personal, beautiful and functional for us, our friends and our guests to enjoy. We thought we received the highest compliment ever when one of our contractors asked if he could bring his wife to stay at the cottage for their anniversary.
