About Jill Hancock

We purchased this property in 2011 and love living here. We enjoy having the little downstairs apartment for family and friends to stay. We have met some wonderful people that have stayed in our place.

Why Jill Hancock chose Norkirk

We looked for quite a while before we found this perfect location for us. It is on a private lane, yet in the middle of downtown Kirkland.

What makes this house unique

Our little MIL apartment is perfect for those that want to get away and yet feel like they are still at home. It is private and you can come and go as you please. It is a downstairs apartment that is part of our home on a private lane. There is a private little patio off the back to sit and drink coffee or a nice happy hour in the afternoon. Walk to all that downtown Kirkland has to offer, take in all the nice Wineries in downtown Woodinville, or a 20 minute drive to downtown Seattle to visit Pike's Market and all the fun activities of downtown. We are an hour and a half from Crystal Mountain Ski Resort, Stevens Pass which are both great Ski Areas. The San Juan Islands are close for beauty, whale watching, and wine tasting at some of the local wineries on the Islands. If you want to go biking/hiking, there are lots of wonderful hikes and bike trails close by. Of course if you need retail therapy...I can give you all the inside scoop on that! We hope that you enjoy your stay with us and feel comfortable and at home. 2 person Max. NO SMOKING!

Quiet MIL in Downtown Kirkland

Kirkland, WA

Comfortable, tasteful suite with deliciously fragrant bed linen.

  • 5 of 5

The suite (and its lush surrounds) is exceptionally comfortable ...... and therefore inviting for an extended stay. It really felt like a home away from home. The hosts were charming, generous and accommodating. The location was perfect.

When I first walked in, I was so impressed with the beauty and charm of this quaint little MIL. It is about a mile off the water with beautiful views and impeccable cleanliness. We stayed

here for our honeymoon and will always cherish the memories. It is simply lovely!

Simply Lovely

  • 5 of 5

We often go to Kirkland for work and a long weekend of touring the local wineries. This trip we decided to forgo the usual hotel and stay at this lovely apartment, we couldn't be more pleased we found this wonderful gem. Everything was exactly as pictured and just as comfortable as it looked. The bed was amazing and it was easy to feel like you wanted to sleep in, quaint well stocked kitchen and sizable bathroom. Did I tell you they supplied robes?? I can't wait to stay again and wish I could add more stars to the experience. Thank you!!!

Would love to stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

For us, it was the perfect spot. Modern, well maintained and very clean. Super quiet road and easy to find. Well appointed kitchen and bath. Electric fireplace took the chill off the apartment easily. Very comfortable queen sized bed. Owner communication was timely and full of good information on restaurants, things to do, etc.

It was truly a home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came up to WA for a week to help our son recover from a major surgery. This MIL apartment worked out perfectly and we loved the ammenities it offered to make us feel right at home. We stayed for 9 days and the convenience of the location and the comfort of having our own space to relax was better than any hotel we could have found. We look forward to coming back and hope to make this a regular spot to call home during our stay.

Thank you so much,

Guy and Pat
