Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Ideal for a single visitor or cozy couple.

Often described as feeling 'European'.

The Cottage is a bedroom with a bathroom and shower.

A deck overlooking a peaceful garden.

Parking is available on the property in private driveway. Plenty of off street parking as well.

Gravel driveway leads you to a hidden urban oasis in the middle of a pleasant city block set back from the street.

The garden separates you from our home, giving you a view of greenery to enjoy from the deck.

We do not offer a kitchen as the Cottage is intended for short visits.

We provide a hot water kettle, a small refrigerator (loaded with complimentary beverages) and Via instant coffee.

No pets or children.

The #36 bus is across the street and will take you downtown in 20 minutes.

We are gay, race and age friendly and expect that you are too!

About Mary

I love gardening and the cottage is surrounded by my efforts of creating a nest of greenery that puts the city at bay while you nestle in for a pleasant urban experience.

It was important for me to draw from my own travels and wanted to show the same warmth and generosity I've experienced and apply it as a host.

Mary purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Mary chose Seattle

Seattle is a great city and I'm happy to show it off from the perspective of a proud homeowner and a seasoned traveler.

Seeing the interior of a place through a cozy neighborhood makes a more relaxing and memorable trip.

Our cottage has been very popular with our neighborhood who bring their family members to stay with us.

What makes this cottage unique

You'll get a personal greeting as I live on the property. I believe that is why most people take this route so they can have a human experience. A bit of communication and warm hospitality goes a long way.

We live near Jefferson Park which is an easy walk (1.5 miles) from the cottage. The park has gone through an incredible renovation and expansion! We are proud to showcase a basketball court, 4 tennis courts, skateboard park and a children's play area.

Great little cottage for a quick weekend stay

Mary has a great property. Very clean and cozy. Right on the bus line to downtown. She has everything that you need for a few night stay, including free beer! You won't regret staying here. We really enjoyed ourselves! Thanks Mary!

A quiet place to stay after a busy day in the city

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, very kind owner. You really feel at home. Recommendable for everyone who wants something else than the usual hotel. Next time in Seattle I would choose again this nice cottage.

Perfect Cottage!

I enjoyed my stay in the cottage. It is exactly how it's described. The convenience of the location to the bus route is my favorite part.

Lovely and quaint!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cottage for three nights. We were quite comfortable and so enjoyed the garden that was right outside the door. It was an easy Uber ride from the airport to the cottage and you could easily Uber to and from downtown or take the bus which is quite convenient. We really enjoyed meeting Mary and Bonnie - sharing great conversation over a nice glass of wine or two in the garden! Was nice to get away from downtown in the evening. I would highly recommend this place and if we are back in Seattle, we will definitely stay here again!
