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

Adorable Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our two small kids (3.5 and almost 2 years old) to Seattle to visit friends and check out the city. This home rental worked out great! We fit comfortably in the house but it wasn't so large that our kids could wander too far. We were able to walk to the grocery store and the kitchen had all we needed to make meals at home. We did not use the outdoor grill or fire pit but we did take advantage of the beautiful back at night after the kids were asleep. There were a few crates of toys available which was a nice add. The binder provided had a ton of information and recommendations which came in handy as well. Would stay here again!

Super cute house! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the Creekside House during our visit to Seattle! The house was beautiful and very clean and comfortable to stay in! The kitchen was full of everything we could have possibly needed to cook with and the outdoor patio and yard were gorgeous! It was a short, easy trip to the heart of downtown and the surrounding neighborhood was full of great places to eat and explore. Kathleen and Doug were great hosts and were able to give us tons of good advice on what to see and do. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone making the trip to Seattle! We loved it!!!

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

The Creekside house is fantastic. We stayed for two nights when we attended our son's AO session at UW. The house is immaculately clean and extremely well equipped. The location is within an easy 5 minute drive to University Village and a 6 minute drive to UW. Within walking distance is a PCC Market. The outside patio with fire pit is great during the evening. We will definitely stay here again when visiting our son at UW.

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

At this time, we probably would get the award for the most visits to "Creekside." With that said, you would think that we wouldn't have anything more to say in a review....but, we always do! This visit we had our 3 year old grandson overnight...his first visit as he lives in Seattle and is our reason for the frequent visits to "Creekside." Kathleen knew he was spending the night and had a container of bubbles waiting for us for him to play with outside. Also, she had all the makings for s'mores for us, which we made out on the back patio after coming back from dinner. It is those special and thoughtful extra "touches" that make coming back to this wonderful home so inviting! We will be back in August to what my grandson now refers to as "Kathleen's house!"
