Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We love living in Renton and the Seattle area. Lots to see and to do. Meeting our guests that come from all over the country and world is pretty cool.

Why the Owner Chose Renton, WA, USA:
We like old houses!! This one reminds us of the old house Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed moved into in 'Its A Wonderful Life'. Our stairway even has a loose ball cap finial on the newel post at the base of the stairway like the movie! Our house is old, but the Carriage House/Guest House/Cedar River Inn is new. We tried to make it look very original, with a slight modern flair. Hope you like it too.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Oh so convenient!
