About the property

Quiet neighborhood just minutes walk to downtown Ballard

In the heart of the North Ballard Loyal Heights neighborhood you'll find this little hideaway nestled in a very quiet alley with your own private off street parking. It's right off a main avenue so you can mainstream back to highways in a second, or just meander the byways of Ballard's charming neighborhoods. LOCATION! Come in and relax in our peaceful little abode. It's private. It has all the comforts you need for a hassle free and comfy stay in a safe and charming neighborhood. This is how you live like the locals! Unpack the car and have a glass a wine and enjoy the quiet of this NO-HOTEL neighborhood. Slumber away and wake to a cup of java before you head out to explore Ballard's great cafe's, restaurants, farmers market, parks, shops or perhaps jump on the metro or call an UBER to head to Golden Gardens or down town Seattle. We will give you the list of the GO TO places.

If you want to work from the cottage we have WIFI. Or if you want to veg and catch a flick we have a flatscreen TV with viewing options. We provide you with your own washer and dryer to make your traveling experience a clean breeze.

Earl Cottage - Ballard Bungalow
average rating of 4.5 based on 4 reviews

Cute, clean, comfortable, close to a good bakery, good coffee and the ocean.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was cute, clean, quiet and very comfortable. The kitchen was perfect for breakfast and coffee, I didn't need it for much more but it seemed to have everything. Having a small washer/dryer was good especially after being caught in the rain. More information would have been helpful on how to operate the TV and the available apps. I am sure the owner would have given the information if I had reached out. Will rent the cottage again.

Very cute and very comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is located in a very quiet and comfortable location. The landlord could not have been more helpful! In fact, I've rented this cottage again for another week. I would highly recommend.

Nice place!

  • 4 of 5

It is a nice cottage. The parking spot is difficult to get out of with a bigger car. I had s Nissan Rogue and to be careful backing out. If you have a bigger than compact car I suggest parking on the street. There is parking available on 28th Ave or Earl Ave.
