This delightful retreat is located on the main floor of a turn-of-the-last-century house in historic old Ballard. It is a complete, fully functional home with a fully equipped kitchen. Nothing is shared with the upper unit except laundry facilities in the shared entry. Acoustic insulation insures that you will hear little if anything from your upstairs neighbor.
Ballard has everything you could want. Living in this home, it's all at your doorstep! Within 1 block you can enjoy espresso and some of the best bread and French pastries in Seattle. Within a 6 block radius you can enjoy an upscale movie house, a diverse array of restaurants, large QFC grocery store, shops and the fabulous year-round Sunday Farmer’s Market offering fresh locally grown produce and products. If your visit is job-related, you will also have access to a post office, FedEx, and built-green public library.
A detailed renovation was completed in 2008, in keeping with the home's original character. Wide plank oak floors extend throughout, including the new kitchen. The kitchen is cook-friendly and there is an herb garden for your enjoyment. Guests can chat with the chef while sitting at the breakfast table. The main dining room can seat six and there is still room for a sofa. Barn doors separate the dining room from the very spacious living room. It can be closed off for privacy and has two queen sized high end, no-bar hide-a-beds and a 26 inch flat screen TV. There is another queen sized sleigh bed in the private bedroom with lots of drawer space and ample storage.
The acoustic insulation is amazing! This home is very peaceful and quiet.

Another great stay!
We had another wonderful stay at the Victorian Retreat this past week. The house is in a great location for walking to the library, farmer’s market, and all the shops and restaurants in Ballard. You have easy access to Seattle Center and downtown via the Rapid Ride and it’s a quick drive to the zoo, or to play at Greenlake or Golden Gardens. The apartment is super clean and well maintained and has been in all the years we’ve stayed here. We love this place!
Great place in Ballard
Perfect place, perfectly cared for in an ideal location. Thank you SO much for keeping it available
Clean, tidy and accomodating
Would definitely keep it on my list for next time. Great location, sweet abode.
We came to Seattle to meet our two month old granddaughter. This home was just terrific for my husband and me. Lots of space to spread out in, so much better than any hotel room. I’m sure this home is better than most other VRBOs around. There were only two of us, yet four people could stay here with out being on top of each other. Great equipped kitchen, large dining area and then a nice sized living area, not to mention a bedroom and bath..and laundry! For another extended Seattle stay, we will stay here! Owners were accommodating prior to our arrival. We didn’t need them once here, but I feel they would have been attentive if necessary. No noise from the upstairs renter, surprised me. PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT
2nd Time Renting here, Love It!
We came last year and had the upstairs, which was wonderful, but no longer available.
So, we (2 friends) stayed in the downstairs unit this year and it was fabulous. The owners
show they are detailed oriented and deliver a very comfortable homey house. Close to Old Ballard; a great bakery down 2 blocks; has a parking spot this year; comfortable beds and nice bedding. Even in the rain of Seattle, you could easily stay put all day in this house and relax.
Ideal location, good owners, spacious
We've stayed here many times. Grandchildren love to come over a day stay the night. We'll equipped kitchen, TV an wifi
Five minute drive to indoor rock climbing gym, boat locks with salmon ladder, waterfront seafood restaurants with stunning views, and saltwater beach with bonfires at night.
