About Kathleen & Doug Guthrie

We love to travel and enjoy staying at VRBO properties and 'living like locals' whenever we can. Growing up in the Midwest and Northeast, and spending our early career years in Atlanta and Los Angeles, we have called Seattle home since the mid-90s. With its combination of beautiful water and mountain vistas and a lively urban vibe, Seattle has been the perfect place to raise our two sons and grow a business.

We acquired Creekside House in part to stave off the infill housing boom in close-in Seattle neighborhoods. With its lush garden, urban stream and rare street-to-street lot, Creekside House became our hobby house - allowing us to design and craft our vision of a cozy, private urban retreat. As life-long crafters and do-it-yourselfers, we completed a good portion of the renovation work ourselves and have filled the house with one-of-a-kind touches which we hope you and others will enjoy.

Kathleen & Doug Guthrie purchased this house in 2007

Wonderful visit!

  • 5 of 5

Creekside House is a wonderful place to stay. Kathleen and Doug have thought of everything to make your visit perfect. Their home looks exactly like the pictures - beautifully decorated, top-notch appliances and very comfortable. It is very convenient to several markets and great restaurants. I only wish I had been able to stay longer!

The Perfect Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This property is a gem of a vacation rental. It has been lovingly remodeled and outfitted. Everything is high quality, from the beds and linens to the kitchen appliances and equipment. They backyard is beautiful, with a natural creek running through it. We had a most relaxing time and would definitely recommend it to our friends and family. Thanks Kathleen and Doug

Fabulous place. Truly all the comforts of home and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Creekside House. It is beautifully cared for and had everything we needed in the kitchen and elsewhere (plenty of towels, quaint outdoor tranquil space, good wifi, very comfortable beds and couch) and my favorite - great assortment of tea! Very close to University Village and UW campus. The grocery store down the road is amazing. The hosts are super nice and checked in on us to make sure we had what we needed. Will definitely stay here again next time we are in Seattle to visit our daughter at UW.

Charming

  • 5 of 5

This little house was perfect for our thanksgiving gathering. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed to cook our feast. The house has many upscale features including kitchen appliances and shower heads. I particularly appreciated the separate thermostats in each bedroom. Many small touches also made the house both cozy and interesting. The back yard has a few surprises for fun! We had a wonderful time!
