              Car: Recommended

              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.

               

              Owner info

              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.
