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

Great location and pleasant home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed ourselves in Seattle and at the creek side home. It was a great location and easy access to everything.

High quality and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The CreekSide house is beautiful and comfortable - what a find! Two cozy bedrooms, a lovely common space, an extremely well-stocked kitchen and one of the most beautiful yards ever! This place has it all.

My sisters and I recently rented this house, following my hip replacement surgery. The fact that there are only three stairs to get in was very helpful. Most of the rest of the house worked well for me too, especially the nicely remodeled bathroom. The presence of my sisters was critical, however, for getting laundry done, which is down in the basement. This may or may not work for you.

Off street parking is very handy. We didn’t have a car so we Lyfted, as needed, or walked. The neighborhood is lovely; it felt safe and quiet, with good walkability to the University and U Village. The house is on 40th, which is a through-street with some traffic noise. This level of noise is easily ignored after a bit of time. There are a couple of very nice markets, with delicious prepared foods, within a few blocks - which my sisters walked to frequently.

The owners, Kathleen and Doug, are next door. Without being intrusive, they were very responsive to our every need. We are quite grateful to them for such great accommodations.

Adorable Family Friendly Utopia

  • 5 of 5

Our family fell in love with this amazing property! Perfect location for us to feel right at home. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery while drinking our morning coffee and at night playing all the different board games. Very clean and quiet neighborhood. The local markets and metro bus stops are just a few blocks away, which is very convenient when traveling with children. We highly recommend this utopia for a relaxing vacation home for families and couples. We will definitely return to this home away from home in the future.

A real gem!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Creekside House during a brief weekend in Seattle. We were drawn by the pictures and the description but were still pleasantly surprised at the quality of the property. The kitchen was beautifully appointed and lacked nothing to cook a real meal (which we unfortunately never got around to), the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was bright and clean with lots of soft towels. The back yard was a little haven and the location near the university area was great. We had no trouble getting around Seattle from here. The owners were very good about communicating all pertinent information in a timely manner. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. We would definitely book this property again.

Love Creekside

  • 5 of 5

Another great stay at Creekside! We come to Seattle quite a bit and we are always disappointed if Creekside is already booked as we have become accustomed to calling it "our home away from home!" Location is great for us, the home is always clean, the beds and furniture comfy, and the neighbors (owners) are the best! Thanks again Kathleen and Doug for another great stay...we will see you again in November!
