About Kat Rogers

I enjoy being in the real estate business with emphasis on home improvement and interior design. Having previously lived in Spokane for 8 years I love the friendly neighbors and laid back vibe of Spokane.

Kat Rogers purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Kat Rogers chose Washington State

Spokane is a great place to live and has the BEST weather on earth...in my humble opinion. The people are friendly and the city has more of a relaxed pace to it allowing you to truly exhale and wind down. I love the history and the old buildings add a quaint character to the city.

What makes this cottage unique

The minute I walked in the door I felt at home. I hope you do as well.

The kitchen bay window nook is a favorite place of mine to enjoy morning tea or coffee with sunshine and bright flowers from the planter box just outside starting my day. I adore being in the large backyard whether to grill out and dine or just watch the birds daily activities. The layout of the home is very comfortable with each room distinctly separate from the others allowing everyone to have their space.

It's great location to everything spanning from the airport to Coeur d'Alene paired with the well kept quiet neighborhood are perfect for evening walks or riding the bikes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for preparing a lovely home from which to organize a celebration of our mother's life. Everything worked seamlessly. We have had a very good family gathering.

There's something to do for everyone. Within minutes from walking out the door there are trails to hike, parks and playgrounds. Spas to enjoy and gardens to visit.

At Songbird Cottage we strive to make each guest feel comfortable and at home while being a silent concierge. It's like being at a Bed & Breakfast without sharing your time with strangers (and having to make your own breakfast).

Comfortable, charming and convenient...would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

We four sisters came to Spokane for a couple of days to visit extended family, and we wanted a place where we could feel at home. Songbird Cottage provided a place where we could linger over meals, lounge around, visit with each other, play games, and feel unhurried. We did need to get an HDMI cable to look at family pictures and things from the computer on the TV screen...so bring that if you need one. The beds were comfortable, and we all slept well. I also noticed provisions onsite for a flexible variety of family options. There were lots of kitchen tools, cooking and serving dishes, and a nice kitchen workspace. The home is within about 25 minutes from many things to do...the Spokane River Park and downtown area, hiking, geo-caching, the airport, and the large Spokane Valley Mall shopping area. One sister is a birdwatcher, and she took enjoyed taking pictures of birds at the backyard feeders. Lots of restaurant options are nearby also. We would love to stay again, next time we come to Spokane!

Excellent family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 10 days with my husband and 2 children under 6 while visiting family. What a fabulous place! The house is adorable, the yard/patio was wonderful for relaxing and for the kids to play. The kitchen was standard and well equipped. The linens supplied were impecably clean and amazingly soft. The location was pretty good as well - close to many stores/food. The owner was wonderful to deal with, both before and during the trip - very responsive and helpful. Hope we can stay again for our next trip!

Truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The Songbird Cottage was the perfect place for our group of 5 adults. It felt like home with all the comforts we needed. Plenty of space for each of us to have privacy and pleasant, big communal areas where we could all get together. The backyard was brilliant! It soon became our morning go-to place and our favourite dinner/evening spot. The neighbours were welcoming and we felt very safe. Kat was the perfect hostess. Attentive and prompt in answering questions. Lovely and friendly to chat with. We would definitely return should we be in Spokane again.

Felt Like Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Songbird Cottage for five nights. We were there for a family wedding located up at the beautiful Arbor Crest Vineyard. We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere that the home had. We loved playing card games on the back porch. Cooking yummy dinners and breakfasts. It was close to the mall, movie theater, and a wonderful fruit stand. The beds were very comfy and the linens were nice and soft! This a great place to stay! A big thanks to Kat for making our stay easy and comfortable! We would stay their again in a heartbeat!!!
