                              • Dragonfly cottage is located part of the way up the Green Lake side of Phinney Ridge. This neighborhood is full of traditional craftsman family homes about 5-10 minutes north of the downtown core by car. Seattle Center including the Experience Music Project, Science Fiction Museum and Space Needle can be reached quickly. The Seattle waterfront is less than 10 minutes by car as well. On top of the ridge you'll find great bars and restaurants including Oliver's Twist, Chupacabra and assorted others. Woodland Park Zoo is about 10 blocks north of the house. Green Lake park is a short 3 minute walk from the house and has a running and biking trail around it which makes for a great morning or evening outing. ...moreless

                                We loved the cottage by Greenlake. The owners were very helpful with restaurant and cafe suggestions as well. Everything was clean, organized and comfy. We will stay here again and never use a hotel in Seattle now that we have this special place. The neighborhood was quiet, the lake nearby was super fun to ride the bikes to and people watch and Phinney Ridge up the hill had cafe's and restaurants so you don't have to go far. We like Fremont and Ballard and so the location was perfect for us-easy to get to both areas.

                                Owner response: Hi Sonya. I loved hearing from you when you went to some of the restaurant’s I recommended. Food in this town is good and there are so many places to try! I’m happy to hear you had a splendid visit to your old home town and that you will try more vrbos! My husband and I love to stay in them all over the world. A house beats a hotel just about every time!

                                The cottage was very well stocked and had everything for our weekend getaway. The location is perfect - two blocks from Greenlake, which offers great walking/ running / biking trail, playground, community center etc.

                                My husband and I stayed at the cottage for 4 days with our 19 month old son, and our large dog. Overall the house was clean, well kept and came with everything you need to be relaxed and comfortable! great beds, lots of kitchen supplies (pots/pans/spices etc) The location is amazing for a small family, walking distance to the lake trails, really close to the zoo, and some great little shopping in the area, also a quick trip to downtown. We will definitely return and hope to make this getaway again!

                                This cozy cottage was well-suited for our family of three. It is located in a great walking neighborhood, close enough to restaurants and shops yet easy access to a major thoroughfare to downtown, by bus or car. The cottage itself is well-stocked, well-maintained, and clean, and the owners are very accommodating and helpful!

Thanks again for everything!

                                This cottage was a great fit for our family's Seattle vacation. It's very kid friendly - it has a fenced backyard which was adorable and a nice front porch with a baby gate to keep the kids from going out to the street. The house was equipped with everything we needed, even a pack and play and some kid books and toys. We bought fresh fish from Pikes market and had a local Seattle friend over for dinner. Green lake is beautiful and this home is easy access to many areas of the city. Also has a washer and dryer and two bedrooms, great when traveling with kids that nap. The owner is very attentive and quick to respond too! Just know that the home is very very old. We didn't mind, but the photos definitely make the home appear more updated than it is. One bedroom has a skylight that is very bright...great energy saver, but allows no chance for sleeping as long as the sun has risen. It was a wonderful stay and we can't wait to visit Seattle again!

                                Owner response: Thanks for your nice review. The house is old, we celebrated it's 90th year and will be proud to see it's 100th in the years to come. We enjoy it's character while trying to make period appropriate updates.

                                A smidge north of downtown, a home away from home in a quiet Seattle neighborhhood, with it's quaint architecture and private back yard. It makes a nice oasis in the middle of the city for business travelers and wanders like me.

                                We had a great time staying at Dragonfly cottage. The house was well equipped with everything we needed, including the kitchen. Bikes were provided so we had fun riding them around. We also enjoyed drinking our morning coffee on the front deck and have dinner on the back patio.

                                We recently stayed at the Dragonfly Cottage for two nights and enjoyed it greatly. It is clean, comfortable, has a very homey feel, and is located on a quiet street in a nice neighborhood. Even though our stay was short, we felt like we were part of the neighborhood. It's a walk to some nice stores and a short drive to restaurants and to Green Lake. We booked our stay on rather short notice, and Ronda was great to work with.

                                Owner response: Hi Alan, was glad to be able to accommodate your stay - wish I would have had more days available for you and your wife! I love my neighborhood and am glad you enjoyed it too! I hope you come back, think of Dragonfly Cottage if you do!

                                We just returned home from our vacation in Seattle. Had a great stay and found it clean and very comfortable to have a house rather than a hotel room. The house is small, but a good size for what we needed. We have a toddler and an infant and had plenty of room. We ate outside on the front porch for breakfast and out back in the fenced in backyard for dinner. The owners supplied us with all the equipment for our kids as well as books and toys! Plus the washer and dryer came in handy, and they supplied the detergent. The zoo was awesome for our toddler and was only a 20min walk. We also went to the neighbourhood farmers market on Friday which is where we bought groceries for dinner that night. It was about a 5-10 min walk. A supermarket is close by as well. The cons to the house is that one bed needs a new mattress and that room has a small skylight so don't plan to have naps or sleep-in while in that room. Overall great stay and great neighbourhood, not too far of a drive downtown. We would stay there again for the price we paid.

                                Owner response: Thank you Pam! I’m glad you enjoyed your stay because I enjoyed preparing for it! I appreciate your thoughtful review and feedback. I actually forgot about the skylight in the other room (the majority of the year you don’t have to worry about that in Seattle) – I’ll do something about it to make it a better room for sleeping in. I also didn't realize that mattress was bad – I’ll get that fixed too. Thanks again!

                              Year Purchased: 2007

                              About the owner: When not staying in the Phinney Cottage we can often be found traveling the world or staying at our country property outside Seattle. We enjoy traveling and often stay in vacation rentals ourselves.

                              Why the Owner Chose Phinney Ridge:
                              After falling in love with the Phinney neighborhood we purchased the cottage in 2007. We thoroughly enjoy the area and still stay in the house often.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              Location and comfort! We stay regularly at the cottage ourselves so it is very important to us that it is truly a 'home' to you when you are there.
