Capitol Hill Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Free-standing cottage - studio with 1 bath (sleeps 2)

Small Space, Big Style, Modernist Sensibility. Tucked into a lush courtyard, this cottage in Seattle’s renowned Harvard-Belmont Historic District is a charming little gem.

The 320-square foot cottage contains a queen-size bed and accommodates two guests. There is a well-appointed kitchen, three-quarter bath, washer and dryer, secure wi-fi connection, wood-burning fireplace and dimmable lights throughout. When the sun is shining, the gazebo in the courtyard is the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

Dedicated off-street parking allows you to leave your car and explore Capitol Hill on foot. Within a half mile you will find espresso bars, hand-forged donuts, a ramen shop, fine dining, an independent movie theater, a public library, gas, groceries and tree-lined streets of gracious, early 20th century homes. The neighborhood boasts the city’s only residential Landmark District, which is featured on numerous architectural walking tours. The location on the west slope of Capitol Hill also makes this cottage convenient to the vibrant South Lake Union neighborhood, home to the Museum of History and Industry, the Center for Wooden Boats, the REI flagship store, and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

About Erik Johnson

Hello! We are Erik and Pamela, both natives of the Pacific Northwest. After meeting in Seattle, we moved to New York and Washington, D.C. and eventually decided to return home in 2008. We love fussing over details relating to this vacation rental, when we are not working at our day jobs as an environmental attorney and residential real estate broker/freelance photographer We adore biking, skiing, fishing and trading notes with pretty much anyone on the vibrant restaurant scenes in Seattle, Portland and Vancouver B.C. We also love renovating homes (we are on our fifth in 11 years). There's just something addictive about the process of creating something personal, beautiful and functional for us, our friends and our guests to enjoy. We thought we received the highest compliment ever when one of our contractors asked if he could bring his wife to stay at the cottage for their anniversary.

Erik Johnson purchased this cottage in 2010

Beautiful cottage near dowtown

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is like the pictures, cosy, luminous, well maintened and the garden is a little oasis.

Capitol Hill neighborhood is nice, quiet and just a 10 minute drive from Pike Place Market.

You will find everything you need in the cottage and the parking is very convenient especially in a city like Seattle.

We would recommend the cottage.

Perfect spot in Capitol Hill

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about the little garden cottage. It was so cleverly designed and had everything we needed. And we really loved the art work. It was a perfect spot in a lovely, convenient neighborhood. I highly recommend it.

In a word; perfect

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow looked exactly like the pictured, and had many other amenities that are not mentioned. It's the perfect spot if you really want to feel like part of the city. We've already want to come back to Seattle and when we do we know where we want to stay!

Best Rental Ever

  • 5 of 5

Erik and Pamela have created the best home away ever. This small cottage has everything. It is tastefully decorated and maximizes the use of space. We have never stayed anywhere with the quality and quantity of amenities found in this peaceful, lovely Capital Hill gem. We just completed our third stay and will return again and again. Thank you, Erik and Pamela!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome little place to stay while visiting Seattle. Erik always got back to me in a reasonable amount of time. We did not need for anything! Go to the market, make your own dinner, go to the Lookout around the corner for drinks afterward and Top Pot for coffee in the morning if you want to get out for a stroll.

Everything was clean, well maintained and up to date. Plenty of information for things to do in and around the Seattle area. My wife and I did a couple of the 'touristy' things, going to Pike Place Market and the Space Needle and Museum. But we also took a drive, with the help of the ferry, around Bainbridge Island.

All in all, the setting, location and amenities definitely deserve a 10/10 ! ! !
