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.

A very cozy, quiet retreat in North Seattle

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had been looking for a possible regular weekend retreat during the dark, cold Alaska winter weekend. We had believe that we have found this one in North Seattle. Tucked away in a quiet North Seattle neighborhood this cottage has everything we needed for a pre-Christmas weekend getaway. Green Lake is within easy walking distance, as are many small business. The host is very gracious. We most certainly plan to return.

Fantastic place, fantastic host

  • 5 of 5

We almost did not write this review in order to keep the rental more of a secret. Linda is a terrific host, cordial and helpful. The apartment is terrific; clean, great layout, and it has everything that you would need for a brief stay. Great neighborhood, too, with fantastic walking, quiet streets, close to the UW, downtown, the Ballard waterfront. Would not hesitate to rent this place again.
