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!

Excellent Seattle cottage

  • 5 of 5

Brand new and ultra clean, self contained cottage in Seattle, Phinney Ridge neighborhood. An easy10 minute drive to downtown attractions. The owner Karleen has thought of every detail to assure a comfortable and quiet stay. Please note this is a two story cottage if you have difficulty climbing stairs. Upstairs there is a bright and airy kitchen with all the amenities to cook at home if desired. After a week on the road sharing hotel rooms with kids it was nice to have a separate bedroom. The combination laundry room bathroom on the ground floor worked to our advantage. It added a noise buffer between people getting ready while others slept later. Would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sandra for taking the time to leave a detailed review for future guests! We strive to keep the cottage ultra clean and like hearing feedback on the bathroom/laundry combo - glad you liked it! AND yes, an interior set of STAIRS- always a good point to make sure a future guest is informed. Everyone is welcome to our cottage, but we do want people to be aware! Thanks again, guests like you are awesome to host!

Fantastic place to retreat after exploring Seattle.

  • 5 of 5

The Drey was the perfect accommodation for us during our short stay in Seattle. Fremont was a short stroll away, the bus to Downtown was a 3 minute walk and the neighborhood was very quiet. The apartment was clean and well appointed and was very comfortable for 2 adults and 2 tweens. We would stay again.

GREAT place for small family

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came up to Seattle for the weekend with our 8 m/o baby, and it was the perfect place for us. Very nice, new, and clean inside. Perfect amount of space, privacy, etc. The bed was incredibly comfortable, and the couch also pulls out to make a second bed as well (we figured that out the second night when our baby fell asleep in the Pack and Play in the main bedroom. He runs the show). Owners were SUPER quick to respond and made sure we had everything we needed. Will definitely return the next time we're in the area!

Clean, charming, perfect

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé, friend and I had a lovely stay. The apartment is very clean and beautiful, and was just the little nook we needed while we were there for a weekend wedding at the nearby zoo (walking distance!)Karleen was very responsive and accommodating to our requests. The bed and sofa bed were comfy, and internet worked perfectly. We'd love to stay again next time we're in Seattle!
