Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Get to know a real Seattle neighborhood with coffee shops, boutiques, restaurants, Green Lake and Woodland Park Zoo, all within walking distance, and a short drive or bus ride to downtown and Seattle Center. The Phinney Guest Cottage can accommodate 2 adults and a child (infant/toddler gear available upon request: PacknPlays in travel or regular sizes, high chair, etc.). Additional twin air mattress is available for an older child.

This stand-alone house is decorated with a charming blend of antiques and contemporary furniture, and thoughtfully appointed. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a stackable washer/dryer. Relax in the cozy living room and stay in touch with free Wi-Fi. Enjoy a glass of wine in the evening on the sunny enclosed deck.

Phinney Ridge is a truly walkable neighborhood: no need for a car since you can walk everywhere and take the bus downtown (and avoid parking hassles!). The bus stop is a few steps away, and schedules and details are all provided for you. Restaurants close-by include Mediterranean, Thai, American, Greek, vegetarian, Mexican and the best burgers and onion rings in Seattle at Red Mill. Because this is Seattle, there are six excellent coffee shops within just a few blocks, including our favorite half a block away. May through September, the farmers' market on Friday afternoons is a great place to find delicious local produce.

Seattle is a spectacular city, and we hope you enjoy your visit!

Guestbook comments from the owner

(Review mailed to the owner by guests)

My husband and I spent 3 months January-March in the Phinney Guest Cottage and found it to suit our needs perfectly. The cottage's unique location gives it a neighborhood/small town feel with numerous city amenities available. Restaurants, grocery stores, churches, parks, Green Lake and zoo are all in walking distance from the cottage. Linda, the owner, is very hospitable and quickly responds to the needs of her guests. We have already recommended Phinney Cottage as a great place to stay while visiting the Seattle area.

Magically wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cottage! It was a wonderful place to stay. Loved having a washer and dryer, patio, and CD player.

A couple of things I didn't really like was the spider that popped up in the shower , the street parking was a little rough, the giant mirror in the bedroom freaked me out alittle thought it was going to just fall, and the pillows for the bed weren't that great but you can't please everyone with the right amount of pillow comfort.

Linda was very nice though. She made sure my son had a bed to sleep on, we also got to pick rasberrys on the outside of the cottage. Loved being right in the middle of some shops. Little walking distance to the bus stop. Liked that Linda provided coffee, dishes, utinsels for the kitchen. Was very thankful for the sunscreen and towels that were available too. :) wonderful wonderful place would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am sorry about the spider -- I have an eco-friendly treatment done for the cottage four times a year to prevent ants and any other insects. I will take note of your comment about the pillows; there is already an extra pillow in the closet, but I will add another one. As for the mirror in the bedroom, I had it reinforced some time ago so that it cannot fall down. I'm glad that, on the whole, you enjoyed your stay in the cottage.

Lovely, Quiet Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is a quiet, pedestrian friendly neighborhood, close to a bus that takes you downtown in a very short time. The cottage is perfect for 2 people, and is charming and comfortable.

Great little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This small but well equipped cottage was excellent, cozy, and clean. Linda was very welcoming and helpful, and was respectful of our privacy. Location was in a residential area, however a coffee shop and breakfast cafe were nearby. Street parking wasn't an issue, we always found a space on the block. Would definitely stay here again.

Cute & Cozy Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect! Clean, private, well kept, nice linens and bath towels, cute and convenient! Location is great - just off the main road, very safe neighborhood for walking. Owner was very nice and offered many resources for the area. Highly recommend for singles, couples or family with one child. Easy access, too, so great for those with physical restrictions!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing find, a block away from restaurants and a very easy drive to Green Lake and downtown. Perfect spot for a couple looking for a quiet yet central homebase to explore Seattle.
