About Ronda Hamilton

When not staying in the Phinney Cottage we can often be found traveling the world or staying at our country property outside Seattle. We enjoy traveling and often stay in vacation rentals ourselves.

Ronda Hamilton purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Ronda Hamilton chose Seattle

After falling in love with the Phinney neighborhood we purchased the cottage in 2007. We thoroughly enjoy the area and still stay in the house often.

What makes this cottage unique

Location and comfort! We stay regularly at the cottage ourselves so it is very important to us that it is truly a 'home' to you when you are there.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wanted to thank you for a WONDERFUL cottage to stay in for our time

in Seattle! My family had a perfect vacation and we loved staying in

your home in Phinney! Was a great location, perfect amenities,

comfortable home! We loved it and hope that we can visit in the

future! My brother's in the area -- so he's happy to be our tour guide

when we come!

Thanks again for everything!

Cutest Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage by Greenlake. The owners were very helpful with restaurant and cafe suggestions as well.

Everything was clean, organized and comfy. We will stay here again and never use a hotel in Seattle now that we have this special place.

The neighborhood was quiet, the lake nearby was super fun to ride the bikes to and people watch and Phinney Ridge up the hill had cafe's and restaurants so you don't have to go far. We like Fremont and Ballard and so the location was perfect for us-easy to get to both areas.

Owner's Response: Hi Sonya. I loved hearing from you when you went to some of the restaurant’s I recommended. Food in this town is good and there are so many places to try! I’m happy to hear you had a splendid visit to your old home town and that you will try more vrbos! My husband and I love to stay in them all over the world. A house beats a hotel just about every time!

Nice Neighborhood, close to downtown Seattle.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Phinney Ridge Home. Great location next to Green Lake. The house was clean and the beds were comfortable. Nice quiet neighborhood. The kitchen equipment could use a little updating and the house has an odd smell, but it could just be because it is older. The decor is fun and the owner was quick to answer questions and was very helpful. Overall we would recommend staying here!

Lovely Neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is situated in a lovely quiet neighborhood not far from Queen Ann, Seattle Center and downtown. There are many restaurants, coffee shops and bars within walking distance. Two of our favorites were Thaiku (seriously the BEST Thai food I have ever had) and Ala Mode Pie Company ( the summer peach pie is so good!).

The cottage itself was very nice for our family. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had plenty of room for us.

A perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this cottage up north! It was relatively easy to figure out how to go downtown, and apart from that, there were a lot of interesting places nearby!

Everything from the booking went quite smoothly. The rooms were very clean and cozy. It's really just a lovely little place as it really did feel like a home. We'd definitely recommend staying there, and I am considering staying here again if I get the chance!

Car: recommended

Dragonfly cottage is located part of the way up the Green Lake side of Phinney Ridge. This neighborhood is full of traditional craftsman family homes about 5-10 minutes north of the downtown core by car. Seattle Center including the Experience Music Project, Science Fiction Museum and Space Needle can be reached quickly. The Seattle waterfront is less than 10 minutes by car as well.

On top of the ridge you'll find great bars and restaurants including Oliver's Twist, Chupacabra and assorted others. Woodland Park Zoo is about 10 blocks north of the house.

Green Lake park is a short 3 minute walk from the house and has a running and biking trail around it which makes for a great morning or evening outing.
