About the owner: After a career in engineering and environmental consulting, Rob spent the past decade helping develop Seattle's Columbia City neighborhood. Columbia City offers so much, but it hasn't had enough lodging choices. Rob and his wife Shelley bought the property from the grandson of the gentleman who built the apartment in 1935, and are committed to continuing a tradition of hospitality.
Why the Owner Chose Columbia City: Columbia City is well situated in Southeast Seattle ... halfway between SeaTac Airport and downtown, readily accessible by transit, close to beautiful Lake Washington, with great turn-of-the century building stock, and friendly people.
