Wonderful 5 night stay for our 40th anniversary.
We loved this magical cottage. It was perfect for us, charming decor, comfy bed, and the location was great. Grocery store close by. Did a day trip to Enumclaw, 40 miles, where we were married. Took another day trip to Crystal Mountain Resort & rode the gondola up the mountain & had a majestic view of Mt. Rainier. Took 2 day trips on the light rail train, 8 blocks away, to downtown Seattle for Pikes Place Market, Museum of pop art, etc. Jackie was fantastic, very responsive to our questions, & had water, yogurt, cereal, coffee... waiting for us. Loved her dogs, Amira & Betsy and had fun getting to know her brother who was visiting from Australia. Will definitely come back to stay here on our next Washington trip. Thanks Jackie! Matt & Sarah from Illinois
We enjoyed you so much as well and look forward to seeing you again. Jackie, Danny, Amira and Betsy.
Delightful, but small, cottage/studio in back yard of main house
Owner has gone to a lot of work making comfortable, cozy English cottage-styled backyard addition. Well stocked, no kitchen, but microwave and frig. Lots of teas and coffees. Queen bed. Quarters a little tight but easy to get used to. Nice neighborhood. Felt safe. Nice location in the Columbia City area of Seattle. Walking distance to shopping and eating. We would come back if the opportunity arose.
awesome place to stay 👍🏼
was a great place, enjoyed our stay, cute, clean and Jacqueline was very friendly and helpful 👍🏼
You were awesome guests. Please come again.
Cozy and quiet
Came up to Seattle for the Pearl Jam Home Shows. I stayed at the cottage for 5 nights. It was an awesome stay, I really loved the cottage. It's cozy and the neighborhood was really quiet, so I was able to relax. Jackie is a great host, and she made sure I had everything I needed. Before I came out for my trip, I had some questions, and Jackie had an awesome response time and was able to help me with everything. The access to the cottage was easy with it's own side gate entrance. The price was cheaper than any hotel I could find downtown, and getting Downtown was easy. There's a bus line and the Light Rail, both close to the cottage and can get you into downtown relatively quick. I was able to get around quite easy. It's a quick walk to Lake Washington, and Jackie has a kayak that you use if you'd like to take a paddle around the lake. If I need to a place to stay next time I come to Seattle, I will definitely be looking to see if the cottage is available.
Thank you for cleaning the cottage before you left. That was very thoughtful of you. I’m
so glad you enjoyed your stay. See you next time
Nice and quiet
The cottage was lovely. It was a nice place to stay and decompress. Thank you!
Overview on this cottage inaccurate and misleading
My husband and I were very excited to plan a two week visit to Seattle. He chose the first
week in Fremont near the Seattle Center where we saw much of down town I chose the second week at Mount Baker/Rainier. I chose it because it said it had a kyak we could use and that the beach and shops were all with in walking distance and the first three words of the overview were "No Car Needed". I envisioned pulling the kayak over to the water and spending many happy hours discovering Lake Washington. How close was the water?
Well if I didn't need a car, and would have to carry the kayak it should be close..right!
I made several attempts to find the water, only finding out after I had left that the water
was 4 blocks up, 2 blocks over and 1/2 a block down. Clearly not close enough to
carry a kayak on foot.
The cottage is charming --unfortunately there is NO provision for preparing and cooking food. There was plenty of tea and coco and cofee, but no way to boil an egg or toast a piece of bread. No pots or pans or cooking stove or toaster . This leads us to the No car required short walk to the stores and shops.
The street down to the center is a sheer drop with a rotary in the middle and another sheer drop. I barely made it down and sprang my knee trying to come up. The owner claims this kind of walking is plastic in her neighborhood, maybe ,
but we never saw anyone else trying to walk a long distance in the seven days we were there.
Now we need uber...even uber commented on the hill when driving up. We needed uber to go anywhere...to get food...since there was no provision to cook it ourselves and the only sink was the bathroom sink, and no where to do laundry but 5 blocks away!
I didn't travel all that way to sit in a charming garden in someone's back yard.
The correct overview should say kayak available to load in your car and take to water several blocks away. It should say drive to the light rail to go into Seattle. If it had
I would not have rented the charming cottage and not have had such a physically difficult and dissapointing vacation.
I am sorry you felt this way. As I have explained in the best way I know how, I am near many amenities and busses and trains. All under one mile. Most just a few blocks. If you read all the other comments on my listing you will see that people say how easy it is to get to the train. How easy it is to walk to everything. I have not been nor would ever be misleading. Thank you for taking the time to write a review
Close to Pike Street Market, Seward Park and hiking trails. Blocks to Lake Washington
