We love living in Renton and the Seattle area. Lots to see and to do. Meeting our guests that come from all over the country and world is pretty cool.
Lisa purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Lisa chose Renton
We like old houses!! This one reminds us of the old house Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed moved into in 'Its A Wonderful Life'. Our stairway even has a loose ball cap finial on the newel post at the base of the stairway like the movie! Our house is old, but the Carriage House/Guest House/Cedar River Inn is new. We tried to make it look very original, with a slight modern flair. Hope you like it too.

A Best Kept Secret
This is a lovely accommodation, located in a very convenient spot to head in any direction in the Greater Seattle Area. The owner is on site and available to answer questions and make your stay comfortable. The Carrige House has all the comforts of home. The deck just outside your door has nice seating choices and is adorned with many plants and flowers for you to enjoy. We would definitely go back for another visit!
It was really great meeting the two of you. I'm so glad you chose the Carriage House as your place to stay while you were in Seattle. I'll look forward to seeing you back for another visit!
This is our second stay at this property. The accommodations are very comfortable and private. Owner is helpful and works hard to ensure a perfect stay. The apartment is less than a block away to the quaint downtown Renton area and the Cedar River and wonderful walking trail. Very convenient to Seatac and Southcenter.
Very good property, clean and walkable to downtown Renton. It had everything we needed. Lisa was very accommodating. Recommend it highly.
Convenient and Cozy
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here for 10 days. We found the facilities exactly as described and Lisa was an excellent hostess. She ensured the place met our expectations and was certain we didn't need for anything. We especially enjoyed the convenience as it was 1 block away from our son's apartment. We also enjoyed the downtown area and local restaurants / coffee shops. Lisa is very personable and while she gave us all the privacy we could want - we truly enjoyed the few conversations we had with her. Lovely lady and cozy rental. I highly recommend the property - you won't be disappointed.
My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. The property is located just off the downtown Renton area and offers a peaceful, tranquil setting. The accommodations were wonderful from the well-equipped efficiency kitchen to the bath and bedroom. Lisa was a gracious hostess, assisting us when we needed help, but respecting our privacy. The deck is a welcome addition where we enjoyed our breakfast and dinners. There are several good restaurants within walking distance as well as a bar offering local brews. Seattle is a short drive away, but compensate for the traffic, no matter what time of day you are headed there. We will definitely stay here again if our travels take us back to the area.
Relaxed and friendly
We stayed for two weeks while visiting our daughter in Renton and it was a perfect place to have as a base. Especially the outside area where we spend most of the time. Lisa was very helpful and made us feel comfortable and safe.
Water sports and fishing: the property is located very close to Lake Washington, Puget Sound, and the Cedar River. Kayak and Canoe Rentals at Lake Washington. Hiking, walking, running & bicycling: the Cedar River Trail is only 1/2 block away.
