Renton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

This very cool and hip carriage house, by Seattle Green designers/builders Batt + Lear, is located in Downtown Renton just minutes from SeaTac Airport. Close to Tacoma, Bellevue and Seattle, you will enjoy easy access to parks, the Cedar River, Lake Washington, running trails and more. Walking distance to a variety of delicious restaurants and fun shops as well as Renton’s Antique Row and the Renton Transit Center.

The Carriage House is a two room suite offering a queen size bed, a wonderful private bath with an optional steam shower, and a combo kitchenette/living room with TV.

The in-floor heat, soy-based stained concrete floors, reclaimed fir mill-work and no VOC paint make this a most comfortable place to stay.

Enjoy this Holiday Cottage oasis amid the hustle and bustle of the city. Big beautiful deck with lots of seating in sun or shade, gardens and privacy and an optional steam shower.

Only two blocks from Merrill Gardens.

Easy commute to the Sewing & Stitchery EXPO March 3-6, 2011 at Puyallup Fair Grounds.

The Renton area offers lots of parks, trails, antique shops, restaurants, shopping and convenience to the airport and freeways.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lisa was wonderfully welcoming. Answered all my questions before I confirmed the listing and then made sure I had clear directions before I arrived. She recommended great restaurants within walking distance (loved both the Afghan place and Red House). As a single woman traveling on business, I felt perfectly safe in the neighborhood, both on her residential street (a block from a river and long river walk) and the few short blocks into downtown Renton. The backyard cottage was exactly as described, really comfy. Strong wifi. Great relaxing backyard. And when I asked if there was a blender (breakfast smoothies), Lisa went out and bought one that same day (totally unnecessary! but much appreciated!) She also offered the perfect blend of helpful and let me do my own thing.



Just really comfortable, pleasant, well equipped, and easy. And loved having access to the backyard - total bonus.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This little house was the perfect size for two people. Far enough away from the big city, but close enough to enjoy all of Seattle. Great location from the airport and surrounding towns. Easy to find!

Fabulous Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location about a 15 minute drive from downtown Seattle. Quaint town with convenient restaurants and fast food. Clean and modern remodeled cottage with wonderful shower and heating through the floors. The family was so kind and helped when necessary. Would highly recommend this house and look forward to staying with them in the future!

I could not have wished for a more pleasant stay!

  • 5 of 5

Mine was a long term stay (6+ months) so it was important for me to have a place that was homey and comfortable. There are plenty of good restaurants, a great wine store and grocery shopping all within a 20 minute walk. The trail along the Cedar River to Lake Washington is a real treat for evening and weekend walks. The cottage is warm and relaxing and exudes that that "home-away-from-home" ambiance. I could come home from work, throw a steak on the grill, sit on the deck sipping a glass of Washington red and just relax. Lisa and her family's laid-back, non-intrusive, hospitality made that level of ease possible. Thank you for making my stay so wonderful.

Great place to stay. Location is ideal. Central to shopping, parks, and restaurants in Renton; shopping and restaurants in Bellevue, Seattle, SeaTac, Kirkland, etc. We stay here each year and wouldn't be back if it wasn't ideal. Owners are friendly and helpful.

The lodging fits the bill. Nice bedroom,bathroom,living room. Kitchen is small but works well and makes it easier to clean.

Try it...............you'll like it.............Just don't take our time :)

The Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent this past weekend in the Seattle area and stayed at The Carriage House. We were thrilled with our stay there! It was exactly as presented online, the owners were very welcoming and accommodating. It's a perfect place for a romantic getaway or a couple who just want's a quiet, private place to stay. The location in Renton is great, with easy access to and from any direction. We will gladly stay again on our next trip to Seattle.

Great eco-friendly house with hospitable hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location. It's only a few minutes from SEATAC airport and most importantly it's an eco-friendly house. Loved the smooth concrete stain flooring, which is good for folks with allergies. There are a couple of parks within walking distance and a riverwalk, which our kid loved. The house is located in downtown Renton, with stores like Safeway, Fred Meyers, Uwajimaya etc, close by. Our little one had a good time and she loved the backyard space, with the patio furniture to relax. We enjoyed the barbecue grill in the backyard as well.

Lisa is an excellent host, readily accommodating any request we had. She was very considerate and provided us with extra pots and pans (we cooked quite a bit, because of our kid's allergies). The refrigerator could be a little bigger (however, they had an extra refrigerator in the basement, which helped). All in all, it is an environmentally friendly house.

Lisa is truly are a great host! She even gave us ride back to the airport. We really appreciated that. We would definitely come back and stay at this place again.
