About Lisa

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 Puget Sound

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.

What makes this cottage unique

Oh so convenient!

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 place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect place to rehab after hip surgery. It was my second time staying here and it worked out just as well as it did the first time four years ago. It is close to a park, a river walk trail, downtown, and great restaurants. Very convenient. The cottage is small but was clean and well maintained. The property owner, Lisa, was an exceptional host, super accommodating and great person. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.

Great stay in Renton Carriage house

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It is small but fit our needs perfectly. We were visiting family in Seattle and Maple Valley so it was a central point. Great walks along the Cedar River. Good restaurants in walking distance. Great shower; did not use steam. Lisa was great and helpful if we needed anything. We will definitely come back. We rent often through VRBO and this was one of our best experiences!

Comfortable & Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Lisa has created a lovely space. Just right for two people. Close to great shopping in and around Renton and Southcenter. Some fun antique shops and restaurants walking distance. One way streets are a bit tricky but that keeps the area charming and green. We will stay here again!

Very nice cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I have family in Renton so this worked out perfectly. Being close to the Cedar River was also a big plus. Great for two people. There is enough room for others to sleep on the fold out couch in the living room area. It is quiet as well which is always important

Thank you, Lisa!

Exactly what we wanted! Clean, Comfortable, Private, and Convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Tha Carriage house is very comfortable, clean and private. The location was convenient to walk to downtown Renton restaurants. Easy access to the highway and close to the airport. More importantly a more convenient option for us visiting family in Renton than staying In Seattle and driving back and forth as we had done previously.
