About Scott Lawrence

I am a third generation builder of fine homes. My grandfather would have built this custom craftsman home and it is an honor to be the owner!

Restoring the original style while adding contemporary updates allows my guests to appreciate the history while enjoying all the conveniences of current technology in home design.

I live nearby in a 1907 craftsman home which I recently restored in the historic Leschi neighborhood of Seattle.

Scott Lawrence purchased this house in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time celebrating our parents 70th wedding anniversary. Eleven adults and their three small children stayed in this house, plus eleven more adults joined us for a special celebration dinner on Sunday. The house worked well for this special family event.

Perfect for a large family or group holiday!

  • 5 of 5

I really cannot say enough nice things about this property. We had a three generation family gathering over the December holiday, and we selected t his house based on its location. It was very easy to access an express bus to get downtown, and the nearby running trails were spectacular. The bedding and beds themselves were amazing. We found the foam mattress so comfortable that we came home and bought one of our own! The property is beautiful and totally charming. The kitchen was very well appointed, and had room for a few people to work in it at a time. All the linens were clean and comfortable. We have already discussed returning to this property, as it is easily the best VRBO we have ever stayed in. Many thanks to the owner for an excellent property!

Bridal suite

  • 5 of 5

I loved hosting the bridesmaids at this house. The layout was perfect for our group. My mother stayed in a room in the smaller house and the rest of us thirty something's spread out in the remaining bedrooms. The location was perfect for visitors to Seattle. Clean house and someone even came out Sunday night to put the trash and recycling on the curb for us. Our guests used a combination of rental cars, uber rides and walking during their stay.

A Great Family House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house had plenty of space on the main floor for the 10 of us who stayed in the house to entertain others from the Seattle area who dropped in to visit during our daughter's 4-day wedding week-end. It was also great to have the upper and lower suites to retreat to. Everyone who stayed and visited loved the house. It met everyone's picky expectations. Everything was provided for our rare reunion-- except a pizza cutter. And we cooked a lot of PaPa Murphy's pizza.

Great home for family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Scott’s house. We were there to celebrate our son's wedding. All of my family was not able to fit in this house, but we found a very nice 1-bedroom apartment, VROB 489960, next door. The house was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked and big enough to have multiple cooks. The layout of the house was perfect for us. My parents stayed upstairs and when they became tired of all the activity, they were able to go up and get away for a while. There were nice spaces for people to gather to visit and to have other family and friends stop by. The front porch was our favorite place to gather.

It is a great neighborhood for taking walks, walking to restaurants and the zoo. Bus stops are close by that can take you to major sites. We did have 2 cars and had no problem with parking.

If we come back to Seattle with a group, we would definitely stay here again.

Thank you Scott!
