About the property

Come Experience And Stay In One Of The Best Neighborhood's Seattle Has To Offer!

Brand New May 2017 Classic Seattle Craftsman Backyard Cottage, nestled in a quiet private setting, at the SW corner of vibrant Phinney Ridge. The natural light filled cottage with exposed beam has an inviting open upper floor plan with high ceilings and large windows. This is a stand alone house with no occupants above or below you.

Stroll to shopping and dining, coffee, grocery stores, Woodland Park Zoo and the Rose Garden. Perfectly situated between Wallingford, Greenlake, Fremont and Ballard. Enjoy the Ballard Locks and Brewery District, Golden Gardens, Fremont Troll, and Greenlake’s 2.8 mile path around lake with beaches, wading pool, children’s play area’s and public boat rentals. Use transit for a short ride to South Lake Union, Downtown, Seattle Pacific University, and University of Washington. Street parking is free and available.

Upon entering find gleaming white oak floors, classic millwork and eye-catching lighting. Kitchen features brand new stainless appliances, dishwasher, microwave, garbage disposal and a fully equipped kitchen, lots of counter space, and a kitchen island that seats 4. New modern furnishings, dimmable lighting throughout, stair-lighting, front loading washer and dryer. Stay cozy and warm in the winter and cool and relaxed in the summer with high output heat pump and air conditioner.

Our Cottage sleeps 4 people. You’ll find a queen sized bed in a private room that closes off with a solid wood pocket door and pull out sofa bed. The pull-out sofa bed, is located in the living room, and has all necessary linens, mattress protector, and a mattress topper for added comfort. Please keep in mind the cottage is only 550 square feet and could be tight for four adults (I.e. when considering luggage storage), but completely doable. The closet in the bedroom is large and there is also some storage in the bathroom/laundry room. Some travelers may find the space is too small for their liking. The cottage does have an interior set of stairs as the main living is on the upper floor. The bathroom is on the first floor allowing for privacy. Could possibly be a concern for younger travelers not accustomed to stairs. Stairs are nicely illuminated with stair lighting. Flat screen TV w/cable and Wifi included. Children books, toys, high-chair and Pack-n-Play available upon request. Street parking is available.

About Karleen Robinson

I am a PNW native my husband is from England. My super power is attention to detail while his is telling English jokes. We enjoy nature and bird-watching. Our vacations often include hot spots for birding. Our recent visit to Equador's cloud-forest in Mindo added some spectacular birds to our list! We travel and use VRBO just like you, so we understand what it's like to be a guest. If you have questions, get in touch. We can't wait to host you in our private backyard cottage oasis! We will even share our yard bird list with you!

Karleen Robinson purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Karleen Robinson chose Phinney Ridge

The Ridge that runs across the hilltop separating Ballard and Green Lake is enjoying a surge of new family friendly stops along the bustling Phinney / Greenwood Avenues. Our ‘hood offers the ultimate in playgrounds – the Woodland Park Zoo. People from all over the city flock to Woodland Park and Woodland Park Zoo. Check out Summer 2017 Zoo Tunes! This area is the perfect mix of quiet neighborhood meets in-city energy. Phinney Avenue just begs to be strolled down and enjoyed. New eateries, coffee shops, and fun boutique shops are opening up all the time, and the Phinney Neighborhood Association keeps a steady string of community events on their calendar. Phinney Ridge is simply one of Seattle's best locations!

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is a stand alone structure and so it is private and quiet. You are not in a basement with a family above, but rather the upper level of a light and airy space with high ceilings. The windows, sky-light and entry level door allow for maximum natural light. Everything in the Drey is brand new!

A tremendous dwelling!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay could not have been better. This unique cottage is situated in a beautiful neighborhood. With clear sky the there were mountain and ocean views all around this Phinney Ridge area. There are great restaurants nearby and The Woodland Park Zoo is only a couple of blocks away. Also, The Fremont District as well as The Ballard area are minutes away. There was parking on the street always, which is not always the case in Seattle!

We had come to visit our daughter in Fremont, so, the location was perfect. Also, we had our other daughter with along so she got to stay with us in this smartly designed space.

The cottage is very private, clean and attractive. It is brand new and very beautiful. Our host had thought of EVERY possible detail to make the stay comfortable and worry-free. I would recommend this terrific place to any friend or family member visiting Seattle, and we hope to stay here again soon!

Thank you,

Tye McGee, Spokane, Wa

High Quality Option

  • 5 of 5

New construction efficient layout made for a comfortable stay. Wish the bathroom was on the same level as the bedroom but you can't have it all! Would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! We too wish we could have it all! The city of Seattle would only permit a specific foot print square footage for our backyard cottage. So unfortunately we had to make layout decisions. Our thought was having the bathroom/laundry downstairs gave privacy in a small space. Definitely not convenient or desirable for everyone. Although, we added stair lights in hopes for making nighttime trips easier. Again, thanks for making mention as it helps other travelers decide if this space will work for their adventure to the Emerald City!

Perfect place and attentive host

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful new and spotless unit where every detail has been looked after. An ideal location for exploring Seattle and environs. Karleen is the perfect host and it’s clear she wants the very best for her guests. She’s always available for recommending tours and things to do in the area. Needless to say, we’d like to come back for a return visit.
