I love gardening and the cottage is surrounded by my efforts of creating a nest of greenery that puts the city at bay while you nestle in for a pleasant urban experience.
It was important for me to draw from my own travels and wanted to show the same warmth and generosity I've experienced and apply it as a host.
Mary purchased this cottage in 2009
Seattle is a great city and I'm happy to show it off from the perspective of a proud homeowner and a seasoned traveler.
Seeing the interior of a place through a cozy neighborhood makes a more relaxing and memorable trip.
Our cottage has been very popular with our neighborhood who bring their family members to stay with us.
You'll get a personal greeting as I live on the property. I believe that is why most people take this route so they can have a human experience. A bit of communication and warm hospitality goes a long way.
We live near Jefferson Park which is an easy walk (1.5 miles) from the cottage. The park has gone through an incredible renovation and expansion! We are proud to showcase a basketball court, 4 tennis courts, skateboard park and a children's play area.
A great place to get way after a long strenuous day for me. A cute place just as described. The airplanes did not bother me at all, in fact they were quite soothing. A nice oasis in the middle of town.
My overnight stay here was just perfect. I really only needed a clean, comfortable place to sleep for the night, and this provided that and more. There were libations for when I arrived, and a great setting to have my coffee (that they provided) in the morning. Mary and Bonnie made sure everything I needed was attended to, even offering to pick me up from the train station. Thanks for such a great place to chill on the first night of my time in Seattle!
We found our perfect place to stay in Seattle! The Beacon Hill Cottage in the City was cozy, quaint, comfy, and the owner makes you absolutely feel like you are more than just a guest....We felt right at home. Mary Sorman sets the bar high for her attention to detail. We were delighted that the cottage was furnished with such a comfortable bed, plenty of space considering the size of the cottage, and that the extra perks were all of our favorite things. We have never stayed anywhere as wonderful as this. Thank you, Mary, for making our stay in Seattle so delightful. We hope that the cottage will be available for us to stay the next time we visit our son, Ben, who lives in the city. It's certainly an extra blessing when the owner of the property is a kind, kind soul and for us.... a kindred spirit.
The cottage was exceptionally clean, neat and inviting. The host has a strong desire to make her guests feel welcome and does a terrific job at it. Her knowledge of the area neighborhoods, along with binders with special places to visit, maps and so many great ideas enhanced our walking adventures. Internet connection was fast and reliable. The 36 bus stop is right across the street to take one down town in a matter of minutes.
My stay was lovely. There was coffee for the morning. A comfortable place to stay. I have already suggested it to several people. Thank You!
We were looking for somewhere in Seattle that would be quiet, have easy access to downtown & with offstreet parking and this cosy garden cottage perfect for us.
Mary was a fantastic host, very friendly and helpful. The cottage has everything you could need (even a small fridge & kettle) & it was lovely & clean. It's not a huge place but we certainly didn't struggle as it's well laid out and has a big comfy bed. There was lots of information available so we could find out local info from the folders & leaflets in the cottage.
There's a bus stop to downtown 1mins walk away over the road and the bus stops almost right outside when you come back from downtown. It's cheap & easy to get the bus to downtown which also goes past Jefferson Park, Chinatown & near Pioneer Square too. It took around 20mins to get into town depending on whereabouts you decided to get off.
From downtown you can easily catch the monorail to the Space Needle and Seattle Centre (EMP museum, glasshouse, IMax etc). Also downtown is the large market selling everything you could want with floors downstairs to explore too.
Georgetown is an area nearby the cottage & was recommended for a visit. We had breakfast at The Hangar, which had awesome pancakes & breakfast burritos. A little further on there's a great music shop and a very good chocolatiers too. We passed quite a few places to eat or go for a drink too in this area.
If we visit Seattle in the future we'd definitely stay again.
