Built in 1903, this lovely home faces Green Lake Park in one of Seattle's friendliest close-in neighborhoods. The house is just a few steps away from the lake. Several restaurants and cafes, the Great Hall at Green Lake, Woodland Park Zoo & markets are also within walking distance.

The Lake House is ideal for large groups looking to experience Seattle. It's easy to spend a quiet day exploring the surrounding neighborhood or shuttle downtown for an exciting tour of the classic sights. A large, fenced-in backyard and patio provide a great spot for summer grilling and the house is stocked with all necessary kitchen gadgetry. Sit in the sunroom and watch Seattleites play frisbee at the lake, or relax in the livingroom discussing the day's plans.

The upstairs contains 1 full bath and 3 bedrooms- 1 single bed and 2 queen beds. The main floor houses the kitchen, breakfast bar, livingroom, sunroom, diningroom, entryway and 1 full bathroom. Finally, downstairs is 1 bedroom (queen), 1 full bathroom, 1 futon bed in the small living room area, small tv room, and a washer/dryer room.

Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Great hosts. They picked us up at the airport. Took us to the grocery store. Was around if we needed anything or just to talk (They live above the garage). The house was in great shape had all things we needed. Slept all 9 of us comfortably . Bus lines a block or 3 away (depends what bus you take. Loved just going across the street to the lake to walk or swim. Great place to stay. Would stay there again if we are ever in the area.

Spacious room for 4 generations!

  • 5 of 5

We a had a great stay here, with all Green Lake has to offer. Great patio area, lovely way to start and end our days. Walking distance to play ground and wading pool. Restaurants, stores and entertainment walking distance. We stayed for a week and were sorry to see our week end.

Beautiful, Convenient, Charming

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at this beautiful home for my sister's Seattle wedding in the summer of 2011. The location was quiet and convenient. It is in easy walking distance to a fun playground and children's swimming area. The kids had lots of open park space to explore. The house was enormous, and had a lovely charm, with nice sitting areas and park views. It has a fairly large dining room table, and cute kitchen. Ample street parking. Overall a wonderful stay.

Absolutely wonderful - and perfect for groups

  • 5 of 5

This was a terrific location for a reunion of old friends with families. Everything about this house met or exceeded our expectations. Those of us who stayed there found comfortable rooms and the shared space was perfect for our potluck and grilling with lots of room for the kids to play and enjoy. The kitchen was the best provisioned I have encountered in a rental home and the owners were generous with their time and advice including a very detailed tour on arrival. Of course the location across from the lake is also ideal. Lots of time spent walking and talking around beautiful Green Lake.

In short - everything we were looking for in our home base for our reunion. Many, many thanks to the owners for maintaining such a great place - we loved it!

About The Owner

Our family loves to travel- Europe, Asia, anywhere! So we understand what makes for a great vacation. Goofy photos of the kids, unforgettable urban scenes, tasting something completely new, and most importantly, reflection time. We hope to make your stay in Seattle as amazing as ours have been around the globe.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Green Lake

We've lived in the Green Lake neighborhood for 25 years and have loved every minute of it. It's such a great family environment, with plenty to do, and quick access to the other great neighborhoods of Seattle.

What makes this house unique

The Lake House retains a lot of the classic character from when it was built in 1903, but was significantly remodeled in 2015. Additionally, its location right on the lake makes it easy to take a morning stroll while the sun rises. Only a few blocks away are quaint Green Lake shops, cafes and restaurants.
