Queen Anne house description
Located in Seattle's Queen Anne neighborhood just a few blocks from the iconic Space Needle. Three different spaces are available depending on your needs.
The first space is a wonderful large apartment on the lower level of the house with a separate entrance. With great furnishings and lots of light, this unit is a favorite for families. The space has a queen size bed in the bedroom, full bath, a trundle bed in the entertainment room that converts to a king size bed, dining room and kitchenette. The space opens onto a sunken garden patio. For reviews, calendar, and reservations, see https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/481220
The second space is a brand spanking new 25-foot Airstream. Complete with a queen-size bed, full kitchen, and wonderful yard, it's not exactly roughing it. Add 2 wide-screen TVs and Bluetooth, and maybe we should rename it Urbamping. The shiny, riveted exterior is mirrored inside, with beautiful lighting and plush leather furniture. The kitchen is stocked with coffee, tea, and treats, and features a latte-making coffee-maker. Soft, plush leather seating greets you in the front area. All fixtures are the highest grade in this Airstream 'Serenity' 25. The bedroom has a queen-sized, firm, pillow-top bed, and is very private. Wake up in the morning to the hummingbird couple that frequents the fuscia bush outside the bedroom. You look out onto a wonderful, secluded patio, surrounded by flowers and gardens. Treat yourself to the hammock, or just laze about in the steamer chairs. For calendar and reservations, please see https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/1622794
The final space is a beautiful bedroom in the main house, suitable for 2 people. The queen bed is very comfortable and faces south as does the room, bringing lots of light into the space. The private bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub and 2 sinks. Feel free to use the downstairs parlor and kitchen. For reviews, calendar, and reservations, see https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/170273.
The home itself is a Seattle landmark, just a short walk to the Seattle Center, home to the Space Needle, the Chihuly Glass Museum, the Seattle Opera, Repertory Theater, and all the many festivals there.
Slightly further afield, but an easy stroll, are the walking bridge to the Sound, Olympic Sculpture Park, and points south. Up the hill a couple blocks is the famed Kerry Park Overlook, providing the iconic and mesmerizing view of glittering downtown Seattle by night, and Mount Rainier by day. Amble a few blocks further west and the Olympic Mountains greet you at Parsons Garden park, where you can picnic in solitude within a lush garden.
For your belly, there is the world-famous Toulouse Petite restaurant (Louisiana cajun, including its Bloody Marys) only 3 blocks away. Next door to that restaurant is another also boasting inlaid wood tables and fanciful ironwork: Pesos. Across the street is Tin Lizzy for a very private, very glamorous cocktail and treat. A dozen other fun restaurants grace the 'Uptown' area. Try the Mecca for a breakfast diner replete with sassy waitresses, or Phucket for Thai cuisine. 10 Mercer is also a great favorite. The intimate Sitting Room is only 2 blocks from the house.
The Bus #1 runs downtown (a block away), as do the RapidRide and several other buses. Or, just board the monorail at the Space Needle and your next (and last) stop is downtown.

About the owner: Mark and Nadine have lived in Seattle for over 20 years, and at the historic Ankeny-Gowey house for 13 years. With their 2 sons out of college, they enjoy endurance sports -- from marathons to triathlons -- as well as supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Seattle Animal Shelter.
Why the Owner Chose Queen Anne:
Set in one of the city's most tranquil sites, the Ankeny-Gowey House -- built in 1891 -- is an official Seattle landmark.
