                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1995

                      About the owner: Hospitality provided by chef-owner, Melissa Flynn, who will always have a complimentary treat waiting for your arrival. She’s a longtime Seattle resident who knows a thing or two about hospitality, culinary arts, beer and a local favorite entertainment: burlesque. She is a traveler and has enjoyed staying in many diverse places worldwide. A third generation NW Innkeeper, of sorts, this is her first guesthouse and she is thrilled to share it with tourists of the world! Her property is a sentimental place she has continued to own and maintain for nearly 20 years. It's a delightful, comfortable space in a great Seattle location.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ballard:
                      The property was purchased nearly twenty years ago when Melissa was given the first-choice to buy as a tenant. The great neighborhood and charm plus added bonus of it being income property made it an irresistible opportunity.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                      Location, location, location! There is so much to do in Seattle and this nicely appointed, cozy guesthouse is accessible to everywhere.
