Ballard studio description

Live a part of Seattle's history and enjoy the ocean (Puget Sound) when you stay at the former property of "Harry W. Treat".

Located 7 miles North of Downtown Seattle, and just a 15 minute walk to the ocean (Puget Sound) you will find a quiet oasis filled with activities. We respect your privacy, and invite you to your own private suite and outdoor area located in our home.

Please find information on Harry W. Treat and the ocean park just a 2 minute drive, or 15 minute walk below:

The park was named by and developed by Harry W. Treat in 1907 as an "attraction" at the end of the new electric car lines being built by realtors to induce townfolk to take a "Sunday outing" out of town and through the woods to a picnic or swim at a beach. (Along the way they were made aware of the real estate available!) The Carbine ended at Loyal Way (& 85th) with a steep twisting dusty path down into the park - or those owning a "tin lizzie" could drive down a dusty county road (approximately the present drive entering the upper park from the north) and down to a small parking area on the east side of the railroad tracks, then by foot across the tracks to the beach.

At that time the northern half of Meadow Point (named by the Coast Guard) was the site of a shipyard until 1913. To the south the beach curved in along the railroad seaway - all the way to Salmon Bay. The State owns the tidelands south of the park, with boat works and yards by the Bay.

Thank you and we look forward to meeting you.

                                GREAT place to stay! So much to see in the Ballard area. We were in a laid back neighborhood...quiet and relaxing, but an easy drive to downtown Seattle....and virtually always "against" the traffic. SO much to see and do in our area....close to Puget Sound, best coffee place in Seattle, great restaurants.. and on and on. Our B&B was great....comfortable and relaxing. Having a full kitchen was super and made it a home away from home. We also appreciated the recommendations of the owner for things to see and do. We will be back here for sure!

                                Our week long stay in the studio apartment of the Treat House justified all the descriptions given on the web site. My wife is on a special food plan and it was so easy to accommodate her needs with the kitchen tools and appliances provided. The owner of the house provided us with a warm welcome and easy check in and out. I mentioned in the guest log that, for me a bed away from home usually proves to be a nightmare, not so in this case. All in all, we were very comfortable in the apartment and would highly recommend it for a delightful stay in a quiet neighborhood.

                                We recently stayed at The Treat House in Ballard as a home base for exploring Seattle. We couldn't have picked a better place. Clean, roomy and affordable with a full kitchen, convenient to the beach, the bus, restaurants, shops of all kinds, tourist attractions, and easy parking. The unexpected bonus was Darrell and Beth (and little Hugh), people we now consider friends. A wealth of knowledge of the area, and helpful with anything we needed, we even became "temporary neighbors" and were invited to a small block party with neighbors. If you need a short or extended stay look no further than The Treat House.

                                Just loved staying at the Treat House. It was clean, well appointed, and the hosts were just as friendly and helpful as can be. And the Ballard neighborhood was a lot of fun to explore.

                                This is a poem written by an out-of-town guest who stayed at Treat House. The poem was also entered into a competition here in Seattle. It so epitomizes Treat House and the neighborhood: So Happy Up Here Walking in mist for the morning news; Thoughts drift along to older mews. Not long ago a playground for Treat; Horses and hunting dogs kept a beat. Then up to 85th the trolley ran; Houses rose as they cleared the land. Loyal was born that very same year; The neighborhood was christened with a cheer. Treat blessed us with Gardens by the water; The beach bore the name of his daughter. Sweet aromas from Larsen’s fill the air; Then The Fresh Fish Company, what a pair! Up hill and down the school children go; Every shade of the rainbow they glow. Mom, dad or caregiver at their side; Love watches little feet scamper inside. Nights so quiet and sidewalks so clean; Not far above the Ballard Ave. scene. On the walk back, friendly faces abound; So happy we ended up in this town.

                                What a great place to stay with kids! We had a wonderful weekend and it was just enough room for my husband, myself and our two kids. Very close to the beach and a great place to jog! The Ballard district market is the best I've ever been to. Would definitely stay here again when we come back to Seattle.

                                My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Treat House guest quarters. We used to live in Seattle and we come back frequently so wanted to stay in a neighborhood other than a hotel. We couldn’t have picked a better spot! Darrell and Beth were wonderful and we knew right off we’d be great friends. They invited us to join them at the neighborhood coffee shop and we shared take out Thai. We certainly had our privacy but it was fun to be included in the local scene. The apartment was very comfortable and quiet with a very nice bed and linens. We’ll definitely be staying with them on our future trips to Seattle.

                                We had a great time exploring the Ballard area. We hiked to the beach, rode our bikes on the Burke-Gilman Trail, went to the Ballard Market. We were in Seattle for the Jazz Festival at Chateau St. Michelle and managed to completely avoid the main roads and traffic! The suite is private and comfortable and the hosts are very helpful and friendly. The resident cat kept a close eye on our cheese plate while we sat in the garden and watched the sunset with a glass of wine. We really enjoyed having a kitchen to cook up all our great market finds. Will definitely stay here again.

                                We just spent the weekend enjoying your lovely guest suite! We were most grateful to find you and loved both the suite and the location. Such an interesting neighborhood, great for walking, lots to see and do. We enjoyed the boat locks and fish ladder, the walks along the marina, the Sunday Farmers Market and all of the great little restaurants and shops in the area. It was so nice to meet both of you as well and of course little Hugh. The suite was so clean and well designed. The suite was spacious and nicely decorated. We enjoyed sipping wine on the bench in the front yard under the big trees. We found the neighborhood and the suite to be very quiet. Your hospitality and friendliness, as well as suggestions for things to do and see were so much appreciated as was the fact that we felt like we had complete privacy to enjoy our stay. We would highly recommend your suite and will be back to stay with you again in the future. So glad to know you are there as we feel like we have a lot more exploring to do in your neck of the woods! Once again, thank you to both of you and we hope to see you soon! Cheers!

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2001

                              About the owner: The owner of "Treat House" enjoying the Puget Sound while hunting for "Dungeness Crab". "We are very fortunate to live just minutes from the Puget Sound and have created a lifestyle around it. We love Salmon fishing, Crabbing, and watching all the wildlife in and around the area." "We have also taken up the sport of "Stand Up Paddling", a new type of Surfing where you stand up on the surfboard and paddle. They just opened a "Stand Up Paddle" shop about 3 minute drive from our home, so guests to our home have had the opportunity to try this new sport. Some of the pro riders in the area watch the ship and freighter schedules closely so they can surf the wake these huge ships produce as they ply their way from all parts of the world into Seattle" "We never get tired of the "Ballard Locks" which is about a 3 minute drive from our home. In addition to the 2 locks, there are large, wonderful gardens there. In the Summer you can hear a variety of bands in the "Summer Concerts at the Locks". Watching the large and small boats go through the locks is amazing and I have had the opportunity to see an entire house go through on a barge. They tilted the house via ballast in the barge to tilt the entire vessel. On another note, I would have loved to have seen the large "Sturgeon" fish my wife saw in the locks swimming with hundreds of Salmon. The Whales have also come closer to the area and I saw 3 large pods of Killer Whales just off the shore about 20 minutes north of our home. Back to the Ballard Locks, there was a large whale spotted just near the locks feeding on Salmon just a few months ago." "We are jaded living here for almost 10 years now and forget how beautiful a place this is until we talk with guests who visit. It is just wonderful reliving our first times here through the eyes and stories of our guests."

                              Why the Owner Chose Ballard:
                              We love this area which is near the "ocean" (Puget Sound)

                              The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                              Short walk to Puget Sound and Salt Water beaches at Golden Gardens Park 2 minute drive to downtown Ballard, Seattle's most popular part of town. 3 minute walk to Caffe Fiore, voted #1 coffee shop 2 years in a row. Several bus lines are located within 2 blocks of Treat House. Enterprise Rental Car is located less than a mile away. In addition, they will pick you up from Treat House and drop you back off. Neighborhood is very quiet and you can enjoy a spectacular view of the Olympic Mountains throughout the neighborhood. There is ample parking in the street and this unit also has a private parking space near the entrance. A poem was written by one of our guests and sums up the Treat House Experience: So Happy Up Here Walking in mist for the morning news; Thoughts drift along to older mews. Not long ago a playground for Treat; Horses and hunting dogs kept a beat. Then up to 85th the trolley ran; Houses rose as they cleared the land. Loyal was born that very same year; The neighborhood was christened with a cheer. Treat blessed us with Gardens by the water; The beach bore the name of his daughter. Sweet aromas from Larsen’s fill the air; Then The Fresh Fish Company, what a pair! Up hill and down the school children go; Every shade of the rainbow they glow. Mom, dad or caregiver at their side; Love watches little feet scamper inside. Nights so quiet and sidewalks so clean; Not far above the Ballard Ave. scene. On the walk back, friendly faces abound; So happy we ended up in this town.
