Property description

Hi there!
So you’re planning your trip to Seattle, eh? Well, not to brag but you couldn't do much better than Bootleggers Hideaway. The large apartment has off-street parking and is also 2 blocks from all Seattle's public transportation you could possibly need with the advantage that you're still in a neighborhood. You can walk to Lake Washington in about 15 minutes by following Mt Baker Blvd to McClellan Park. Thanks to my wife, there is a drawing of the apartment in my photos so you can get an idea of the space.
I've tried to make my rental property what I look for in a place when traveling, clean, tidy, comfortable, reasonably priced, and fun.
I've been a vacation rental host since 2009 when I began listing on Airbnb. I now only list on the VRBO partner sites because I like to be able to communicate with my guests directly before they pay and these websites are better to their hosts.

Bootleggers Hideaway is a 2 bedroom apartment. Here are the deets:
1000sq/ft
Sleeps up to 6 (could maybe accommodate extra kiddos if they shared beds)
2 Blocks from Link Light Rail-Mt Baker Station
1 Off-street parking spot (+street parking)
2 Bedrooms with Queen beds
For sleeping extra people: 1 Twin Bed, 1 Double Sleeper sofa, 2 shikibuton futon mattresses, a pack and play
Linens
Towels
Wifi
1 Full Bathroom
High chair
Kitchen and Utensils
Laundry Available for $2/Wash and $2/Dry

Experience a wonderful historic Seattle neighborhood! (And in my humble opinion the best neighborhood in the city—what can I say I’m biased)
The apartment is spacious and airy and gets great daylight. I strive to create a home-like atmosphere.

The apartment is close to everything but it's quiet at night. The neighborhood of Mt. Baker is very diverse, both in the people who live here and the activities available to you. I wasn’t kidding when I said this is my favorite neighborhood in Seattle. You can walk to Lake Washington, cycle all over the city from the apartment, access public transportation to nearly all of the city, there are restaurants and adorable Columbia City about 1 mile south (a decent walk to build your appetite should you be so inclined). Also, another feature of the neighborhood is that you’re just south of downtown, which means less traffic both getting into, and away from downtown or more congested areas of Seattle.
Bootleggers Hideaway was named in honor of the first owners of the property in the 20s. The Gatt brothers were bootleggers and owned a jazz club called the Monte Carlo in Pioneer Square. There’s a house history in each unit detailing the history of the property, neighborhood, and house. You’ll be two blocks from the Mt. Baker light rail station (the main reason I purchased this property) which will get you downtown to the in about 12 minutes, and to the airport in less than 25 min. You wouldn't need a car, but in addition to the parking spot in the driveway there is regulated zoned street parking.
QFC, Safeway, Starbucks, and cute Italian eatery, Mio Posto are all in easy walking distance.
Gorgeous trails and swimming at Lake Washington (Mt. Baker beach) also within walking distance.
No smoking. Wireless internet included.
Check in is 3pm, check out is at 11am.
When you book you'll receive a welcome letter from me telling you how to get to and get into the apartment.

I look forward to hosting you!
Emily

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I've been teaching yoga for 9 years and am currently working on opening a yoga studio in the neighborhood. Eek! This is a big life dream of mine and I'm very excited/nervous/scared. I'm a member of a nearby p-patch community garden and harvest many of my own veggies. I am also a writer studying memoir and creative essay. I enjoy cycling and outdoorsy stuff. I am gay and my wife and I live in the upper portion of the house. Our wedding was last spring and we had it at the Mt. Baker Community Club, just 5 blocks from the house. We got engaged this past New Year's Eve on the Great Wheel. We exited our gondola to a cheering and crowd. It was perfect! Our wedding was also perfect. It was the happiest day of my life which was surprising because I'd never been a girl who'd dreamed about her wedding day. My mom is a helicopter pilot and she and her boyfriend run SeattleHeliTours. If you get a chance I recommend taking one of the tours for a completely different view of the city and surrounding area.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Washington and Mount Baker:
The location couldn't be better. Close to I-5, I-90, Mt. Baker Light Rail Station, Mt. Baker Transit Station, Close to your family in the south end of Seattle, off-street parking, Safeway, QFC, you can take Light Rail to the stadiums for games, restaurants, Columbia City is 1 mile south, shopping, tourist sights, Lake Washington, Perfect location!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Accessible by car or public transit, easy cycling to the north, east, west, and south, walking distance to Lake Washington, walk to Seafair festivities, urban hikes through Coleman Park. Seward Park, a more wild and woodsy Greenlake is nearby.
