Welcome!! I have prepared a relaxing oasis for you and your traveling companions! Perfect for a romantic escape or family get-a-way or business luxury lodging. Includes 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 baths, full dining, relaxing living space, and an inviting patio away from the street. Very new, high-end master queen bed with plush linens and an air-conditioner. The extra bedroom has a double-size futon that also folds into a couch. Both bedrooms are on the top floor with a full bath and vanity separating the rooms. Full sized closets with extra storage plus full laundry available. Large television in the master suite with 400 channels and DVD. Huge assortment of books and magazines. Use the equipped kitchen and enjoy dining at the bistro counter or at the modern dining table (a leaf is available for parties of 6). Off-street parking and 7 metro bus lines; however, you will want to walk the half mile to the beautiful Greenlake and visit wine bars, coffee shops, and take in the amazing lake view. Blend in with the locals and walk, roller-blade, jog, or cycle around the lake (about 2.7 miles around with great paths for kids and adults). There is also a pool and boating facilities. But if you choose to venture out by car, you will find this home conveniently situated about a half mile from the Interstate (It has been suggested that guests avoid the express lanes and stick with the main Interstate). Downtown is only 7 miles south and promises much fun at the Pike's Market, Pioneer Square, Chinatown, the sports arenas, Pacific Science Science, and the Seattle Art Museum. Add if you are a foodie, Seattle offers every ethnic choice imaginable from $4.00 food trucks to 5 star restaurants. You WILL NOT be disappointed!

About the owner: I have loved inviting people into my home for dinning parties, writing groups, and after-work happy hours. I have also indulged in home swapping with other families while traveling. My home is my castle and it pleases me to share it with others. I teach writing at a nearby college and also co-host a weekly radio show, so I am nearby and available to you during your stay. Feel free to contact me about Seattle sites, best places to eat or explore, and anything regarding the townhouse.
Why the Owner Chose Green Lake: I purchased this property for its perfect location--I adore the Green Lake neighborhood. I take the ten-minute walk to the lake regularly, rain or shine! There is always an inviting cafe or coffee house calling me in. The neighborhood welcomes every age group. Little people will love the kiddie pool and basketball courts and jungle gyms. Additionally, I feel in love with the property because it was brand new; I am the original owner and I have taken excellent care of it. As I said, my home is my castle, so I have enjoyed decorating it making it feel inviting. This home comfortable sleeps two couples, or one couple and two kids, or one couple and a friend, or one couple and three little ones.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: I especially love the bay windows in the master suite which offer a fantastic view for sunsets. I added a patio a few years ago and enjoy taking my lap-top outside where I can easily connect to my blazing-fast & newer cable service! Very reliable and wireless. Inside, I feel the hardwood floors and molding give this new home a craftsman appeal. Additionally, the neighborhood is peaceful and just a 1/2 mile walk to the best public and happening lake anywhere near Seattle.
