SWEET 1920'S COTTAGE IN NORTH SEATTLE

Seattle Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bathroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

The cottage welcomes guests with an inviting mix of vintage charm and 21st century updates. It sits in an evolving garden on its own lot, next door to our house. Our north Seattle neighborhood offers a quiet and convenient springboard to the Seattle area's wonderful attractions.

Beadboard and shingle walls, an antique stained glass window and a tile floor in the foyer welcome visitors to the front door. The foyer opens into the warm fir floors of the living room, where a comfortable vintage sofa and rocker allow you to relax with a book, the stereo/iPod dock, or the flat screen TV. Netflix streaming is included, along with a DVD player. A wall of bookshelves is stocked with a variety of reading material, and a cabinet houses an assortment of games and puzzles. Wireless internet and a small desk provide a comfortable workspace if needed.

The kitchen includes a full-sized stove and refrigerator, with cookware to prepare full meals for family or friends. When you arrive you’ll find the kitchen stocked with a variety of breakfast foods, plus some pantry basics such as cooking oil and spices. A table and chairs are tucked in a nook just off the kitchen. An ironing board, original to the house, is built into a cabinet in the kitchen wall (the iron itself is 21st century!).

The bathroom maximizes its small footprint with great function and thoughtful details. It features the charm of a marble hex-tile floor with the modern comfort of radiant heat to keep toes toasty. The quiet overhead fan also offers a heater and nightlight. Shelves and wallhooks are conveniently placed to keep your gear handy around the pedestal sink. A vintage light fixture and medicine cabinet combine with tile walls and a curbless shower to create a comfortable, eclectic space.

The larger bedroom features a queen bed with brass headboard. The smaller bedroom offers a double bed with painted iron headboard. In warm weather, both beds offer high thread-count cotton sheets; soft European flannel sheets are supplied in winter. A variety of cotton, wool, and down blankets and comforters allows you to customize the level of warmth and weight you sleep with, and several types of pillows allow you a choice of support. Each bedroom includes a clock radio and ceiling fan.

A new, full-sized, front load washer and dryer are stacked by the back door, making it easy to run a load of laundry if you need to. Detergent and stain remover are kept stocked.

The private backyard offers a patio and yard furniture where you can enjoy your morning coffee or relax with a book. Help yourself to the organically grown herbs for your cooking, or cut some fresh lavender to tuck into your pillowcase. We will work around your schedule for lawn mowing and garden maintenance.

While the neighborhood is quiet, it is by no means remote! Several major bus lines are within a short walk of the cottage, and we have easy access to I-5 and Highway 99, Seattle's main north/south arterials. Walkers and cyclists will find the Interurban Trail just a few blocks away. Shopping, parks, a city pool and library are within 2 miles, and a variety of reasonably priced restaurants are scattered nearby, offering ethnic foods, from Middle Eastern to Vietnamese to classic burgers and Thai.

Our family lives next door to the cottage with cowardly dog Emma and some indoor-only cats. April loves gardening and reading; Mike is a journalist with an interest in history and politics, and Maggie is a college sophomore majoring in Chinese and science (Bio chem? Molecular biology? Something along those lines) . Our adult children and their families live in Kent and Spokane, and we always love visiting with them!

April purchased this cottage in 2012

After living next-door to the cottage for 20 years, we were delighted when our retired neighbor offered us the opportunity to purchase it!

Review of Sweet 1920's Cottage

Review of Sweet 1920's Cottage

Our stay at the cottage was delightful. It's a cute little place with all the comforts of home. It was clean and furnished. It had more than I expected. Food was available to eat. The kitchen was full of anything I may need to use. I felt right at home. The instructions for the house were simple and easy to understand. The cottage isn't far from the city and grocery store. It is conveniently located. April was a pleasant landlady. She stayed out of the way but made sure that we were comfortable and taken care of from afar. I would recommend staying here to anyone!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed for a few nights at this rental and we found it to be perfect. The location is central, easy to find and there is ample off street parking. The house itself is fantastic it has a nice private back yard, is very cute and comfortable. The bathroom is very new with heated floors, the kitchen is astonishingly well stocked and the beds are comfy and warm.
April the owner was also wonderfully easy to work with. We will come back every time we are in the area!

Sweet home away from home.

This was a four day girl getaway with my sister girlfriend. It was the perfect cottage for us. It is so cute inside and out. Lots of thought went into the decor, eclectic and lovely. The secret is the heated tile floor in the bathroom. OMG! If I got up in the middle of the night that floor was incredible. Can you tell I have never experienced heated floors?! April had stocked the cottage with breakfast food, coffee and snacks. What a delight! We are already planning another girl get away for this summer. April has a wealth of information to share about the area, where to find whatever you want and loves to have folks come and enjoy their stay. Thank you April, I cannot wait for our next girl getaway!

Best by far!

  • 5 of 5
By far the most enjoyable vacation rental experience I have had! A friend and I used the cottage as our home base for apartment hunting. Every morning we feasted on the breakfast options available ~ so nice not to eat out that early in the day. Then we came home in the afternoon and collapsed on the couch with the snacks provided. One sunny day we had wine on the patio. The cottage combines historic character with state-of-the-art amenities. Heated bathroom floor! Luxurious linens! And owner April next door was responsive to our every inquiry about restaurants, bike trail, etc. The cottage is only a short walk from Aurora/99, yet the neighborhood is as peaceful as a rural village. Never again will I stay in a hotel in Seattle!
