A great vintage getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this stay was easy. From it's location, communication with the owners to usage of the guesthouse. My husband and I travel a decent amount and it was the best sleep he's had just about anywhere we've been. It has a quaint vintage look without the stuffy antique smell. It has all the amenities you could want and plenty of space for being a studio. It is completely private even with the shower, hot tub and sauna outside the main door.

I'd say the only small negative thing was there were several cobwebs in the rafters and doorways that we cleaned up.

Thanks for a great stay! If we return to the Seattle area, we would stay here again!

Felt like a personal mini retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at Kirkland Guest House. I was in the area for a conference and the setting, styling of the studio, along with the hot tub, sauna, and outdoor shower promoted balancing work with self care! The host was friendly and thoughtful. I hope to return again!

Quiet and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. It was very quiet and peaceful. The fireplace was a cozy touch that took the chill off in the morning. And later in the day the sun would shine in the large picture window. A couple of deer stopped by to entertain me for a little while and the view was amazing. The hosts have thought of everything to make your stay complete. This is listed as an efficiency because the bed is not in a closed off room, but it is in a separate area and extremely comfortable. I liked it so much we are returning for several more stays.

Great retreat in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for my husband and me during the time we were displaced from our house while the floors were being refinished. It is relaxing and quiet and has all the amenities of a hotel suite plus a lovely patio. I'd swear that the bed is more comfortable than my own. It's a wonderful alternative to a hotel stay.
