We are living on our boat during August this year and offering our Phinney Ridge cottage for rent. It is the best time of the year to enjoy our great neighborhood and our comfortable, daylit, custom home. We have an upstairs master bedroom (queen bed), bath, large closet with washer/dryer and a study with a deck and view of Mount Rainier. Access to upstairs is via a spiral stair case. Downstairs the front bedroom is set up for kids with a raised bunk style bed (play space below), and loft accessed by ship ladder that has both playing and sleeping (double futon) area. We have deluxe pack n play that would work for a crib and a few other toddler basics left. The third bedroom, also downstairs, is set up as a TV room with a fold out double sofa. The kitchen is the hub of activity, it is open to the back sitting area, dining room, and front entry and has a breakfast bar made of old bowling alley floor. There is a small back patio with a grill for outdoor dining, and a parking space.
We are half a block down the hill from Greenwood Ave towards Greenlake. Within a block in either direction are two ice cream shops, two coffee shops, a fire station, a bank, a Pilates studio, 3 restaurants, a bookstore, a card store, a florist, a consignment shop, a salon/barber, Greenwood Hardware and Ken's Market (full, neighborhood grocery). Longer walks take you to the zoo, Greenlake, the library, and the "downtown" of Greenwood at Greenwood and 85th.
The house will be fully stocked with everything for the kitchen and staples (spices, condiments, etc.), linens, and books and toys for kids (Our son is an 10 year old boy into Legos, soccer, and reading). We will pack up clothes and toiletries and put things in storage so there is plenty of room for you.
