About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

This cute little cottage has two bedrooms and 1 bath, with a living room and kitchen and is all on one level (no basement), with off-street parking. The neighborhood (about 3.5 miles north of downtown Seattle) is quiet (on a dead-end street) and within walking distance of buses and restaurants. The house is furnished with all new furniture (mostly Euro-styled), including a queen-size bed in the master bedroom and a double-size futon/coach in the 2nd bedroom/study. The kitchen is fully equipped, including an espresso machine. Most of the appliances (washer/dryer, gas range, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher) are new and whole place has been renovated within the past couple of years. It has a gas fireplace, with forced air gas heating and A/C. There is high-speed internet with a wireless router with cable and phone outlets in both bedrooms and living room. The yard is fully fenced and landscaped (with a pond and water fountain), and has a great view (to the west) of Magnolia, Queen Anne, & Ballard with water and mountains. The living room and master bedroom have French doors to the back-yard (and view), with a covered patio off the bedroom, and includes a barbeque and fire-pit.

Very nice and cozy. Can't beat the view. We stayed three nights when we were in town for my sons wedding. Owner is very responsive. I would definitely stay again.

Exceptional location, Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

The property has an excellent location central for access to communities north of the lake and with quick commute to downtown and Capital Hill.. The house is clean, well-maintained and well-appointed. The views are breathtaking.

The owner responds quickly to any request and is very helpful and accommodating.

Quiet and comfortable cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay despite the terribly hot weather at the beginning of our trip (the A/C unit died while we were in transit and could not be fixed during our trip). Peter was very gracious and bought fans and assisted with cooling the home during the heat wave. There is a lovely garden and view from the backyard. The home is child-friendly and there are several parks for children within 2-3 minutes drive from the home. The beds and furnishings are comfortable, the kitchen well-stocked, and the linens very nice. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Glad that you enjoyed your stay and thanks for being understanding about the AC problem. It was truly unfortunate to have it break down during one of the rare Seattle hot spells. We should have the AC unit replaced within the next few weeks. We hope to see you again soon. Peter

We enjoyed this cottage on a cul de sac near the Seattle Zoo. It have been updated nicely and is very clean and well maintained. we had BBQ in the large backyard and enjoyed morning coffee looking over Ballard and the distant Olympic Mountains. Definitely would stay again.

Was wonderful to stay here for our daughter's University of Washington grad. weekend. Loved the view, loved walking out to eat and especially loved having our furry friend with us. Will definitely be back on a less hectic weekend.
