A Charming Architectural Masterpiece!

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful experience to stay in this charming garden "cottage" in such a lovely neighborhood! We enjoyed every minute of our stay, and hostess Peggy was extremely helpful and accommodating. Though attached to the main house, the "cottage" gives the feel of a very private space with its own spacious patio, sheltered by the most magnificent tree. Everything was perfect - even our own off-street parking - in Seattle! Because I am fascinated by architecture, I was truly impressed by the great use of space! Everything you could possibly need is there: an office nook, a laundry, complete kitchen, spacious bedroom with plenty of storage, over-the-top bath with jacuzzi, and a living/dining area with a truly magnificent view. We highly recommend this great Seattle stay.

This is our second stay at the Treehouse cottage. The setting could not be more pleasant, a beautiful neighborhood for a walk with our little dog. The cottage is so perfect for us, my husband and I don't want to leave at the end of our stay!! A well equipped kitchen and a dining table, a nice table outside for coffee in the morning or wine at the end of the day. Room to watch a movie and a comfy bed for two. We have not tried the jacuzzi bathtub yet, that will have to be our next trip! Peggy and Dave think of everything, even leaving us welcoming flowers and a nice note. We highly recommend a stay at the Treehouse when you are in Seattle!

Lovely in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

The Treehouse Cottage is simply wonderful. It's lovely inside, light and open, so wonderfully quiet, very well supplied from the kitchen to the bathroom, beautiful patio and very comfortable inside with a wonderful computer nook. We felt so at home and hope to stay there again soon! Thank so much Peggy for your caring, kind and helpful ways.

Perfect setting and accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely space in a wonderful area. We walked to the University Village twice via the Burke-Gillman Trail, one of our favorite city trails for walking/biking in all of our travels. The owners made this experience seamless. We would highly recommend this cottage for a centrally located, but private getaway.

Love this Treehouse Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed here while we visited her daughter and spouse who live in Seattle. Very convenient location for them to pick us up and see the sites. Residential area, quiet, shaded, private, beautiful landscaping. The property seemed so much larger with the adorable patio area and the floor to ceiling windows. (Although we found it quite large for our needs.) Fully equipped kitchen, large bathroom, comfortable bed! We could have stayed for months. Enjoyed the Public Market, Space Needle, all the Parks, neighborhood dining, the Troll, gardens. Thank you, Peggy for providing basic fresh items in the refrigerator! So nice that we did not have to worry about items for the first evening/morning!
