(google Lincoln Park West Seattle to your destination downtown for exact)

- Seattle Water taxi is 5 miles from the carriage house. It drops you off in the Pioneer Square area and stadiums for the Mariners, Seahawks, and Sounders.

There is a Queen-sized bed with a 3 inch foam top, washer and dryer, gas fireplace, 41 inch television, patio with a bistro table, and a private full bath. There is a brand new full kitchen with granite counters, glass tile backsplash, and a gas range great for making simple or complicated meals. There is a full-size fridge/freezer, coffee maker, toaster, utensils, plates and most things you would need to feel like you are cooking at home. The Carriage House has private parking with a lovely garden path down to the private entrance. (Five steps down and three up into the carriage house). It accommodates two guests comfortably. Great for Grandparents visiting kids and grandkids in Seattle or West Seattle.

The carriage house is water view, and the Water/Beach access is .2 mile walk to Lowman Beach. This park has a tennis court and stone path to a public beach with logs for climbing or sitting. There is a lovely sandy beach another .2 miles south of Lowman called Lincoln Park. Lincoln Park 135 acres and is one of the largest old-growth parks in all of Seattle. There are dozens of hiking, biking and walking paths throughout. There is also an Olympic size outdoor pool open all summer in the afternoons. For little ones there are summer wading pools and two large play grounds.

From the cathedral ceiling living area, there is a view of Puget Sound, and from the kitchen window there is a view of the north half of the Olympic Range.

The heat is a GAS fireplace with a thermostat to regulate as needed. It does take a few minutes to turn on, but the gas fire is lovely on a cold winter day.

For small or older dogs, it is an ideal location. It is only .2 miles to a waterfront park with great walking for leashed dogs. $50 extra per dog per stay.

About Kyle Winslow

We lived in the older home on the property for four years before we built the new house and carriage house. The gardens were finished in 2002. Many of the plants are from the Endolyne Garden Club plant exchange each year. There are Apple, Quince, Fig, and a few Plum trees. The other edibles include huckleberries, sage, rosemary, parsley, and lovage. In the vegetable garden we usually grow blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, artichokes, asparagus, rhubarb, beans, cucumbers, carrots, greens, and many, many tomatoes. There are about 30 pots of annuals around the property. There is a greenhouse and chickens as well. You are more than welcome to walk through the vegetable garden and grab a ripe tomato in season.

Kyle Winslow purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Kyle Winslow chose Southwest

We live here in West Seattle because it has wonderful views and sunsets, and is not pretentious. Lately it has become very hip and trendy with great restaurants and wonderful bike trails. Many many families live in this area, and the community has a nice friendly feel.

What makes this cottage unique

Better than downtown Seattle:

Way More Quiet.

Closer to the airport using a car.

Nice Parking.

Great walking trails along the water.

More fun wildlife - ( our property has a backyard wildlife sanctuary designation) Coyotes, Raccoons, Grey Herons, Eagles, River Otters, Harbor Seals, and Whales and Daul Porpose every once and a while.

This is a fantastic property in a great location! We enjoyed the bikes very much! Just down the street and around the corner is a great view of the downtown area. The property is very nice and peaceful! Would highly recommend staying here!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you had a nice stay, and also glad you used the bikes to see some of what West Seattle has to offer. The winters views here at the Carriage house are actually better with no leaves on the trees! Come back in the off season anytime. Kyle and Michael

Cozy and Private

  • 5 of 5

Our week at this lovely carriage house couldn't have been better! The private setting has a lovely view to the Puget Sound. The carriage house has everything you will need for a short or extended stay. We enjoyed the easy walk to Lowman beach and Lincoln Park. We will definitely consider this house again if we return to Seattle.

Delightful property. Beautiful scenic setting.

  • 5 of 5

The property and its owners both made our trip wonderful. The owners were very helpful and informative in the preparation for our visit, made it known they were available if needed, and allowed us our space without interruption while there. The property is beautifully appointed with all the amenities one could wish for. I look forward to our next opportunity to stay here.
