A short drive away, Coleman pool offers a unique outdoor saltwater pool that sits on the scenic shores of Lincoln Park overlooking the Sound.

Quiet family neighborhood walking distance to stores, cafes, playground, etc.

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful West Seattle bungalow! Everything that we needed was provided and the location was perfect for travel with children. Downtown Seattle is a 15-minute drive and the beach is less than 5. Playground with wading pool is three blocks away. This vacation rental is highly recommended.

Spent 4 nights here with our two college age kids. House was perfect for us. Really nice cottage design and decor with all amenities we could ask for. Hot tub was also nice. 10-15 mins to downtown Seattle. Will stay here again.

Lori's cottage is truly a home away from home and more!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Lori's cottage for a week while in Seattle. She was extremely responsive and her home is very inviting and comfortable. Very clean and every detailed covered. The location is ideal in West Seattle, within walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and parks. My absolute favorite feature is the outdoor space. Private yard with hot tub, fire pit, and such a serene peaceful vibe that fills the area. A truly peaceful place overall. I will definitely return to her home the next time I am in Seattle. Well done Lori!!

Charming little cottage in West Seattle

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week long stay in this charming cottage. It was a short drive into the city (considering Seattle traffic!) and conveniently located to everything we wanted to visit. The small local community offered many unique cafes and coffeehouses.
