Finding a good place to stay in an unfamiliar city is a challenge. As a fellow world traveler, I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly, and, as a long-time landlord with tenants who remain friends, I've created a place that I would want to stay in if I were in an unfamiliar city.
Safe, quiet, welcoming, tastefully decorated, this is a place not only to put your head at night but to call home while you're here. Enjoy your morning coffee or an evening cocktail in the woodland-like zen garden right outside your window (we do have sunshine sometimes!). Or light a fire at night in the outdoor fire pit in true northwest style.
Even for short stays, the Queen Anne neighborhood can feel like home almost instantly—the corner cafe, a morning yoga class or stunning views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic mountains, all within a few blocks walking distance. In the summer participate in the lively farmer's market where organic food and live music fill every Thursday afternoon. Or, hop on the bus for a short ride to Seattle City Center and the Space Needle, Experience Music Project, Olympic Sculpture Park and more.

As a longtime Seattle resident, I'm happy to help you make the most of your visit to the Northwest. I've hiked and skied many trails, kayaked Lake Union, traversed the Olympic Peninsula, taken ferries to every corner of the Puget Sound, worked the city's tour bus as a guide and even sung jazz in a bar.
