About Susan Bailey

I was born and raised in Southern California and now live in Colorado. I have been in the technology industry since graduating from UCLA 30 years ago! My greatest love is pursuing my artsy side through renovating old properties and sharing them with guests like you. My husband and I have two properties - a charming beach casita in Long Beach, Ca and this cozy cottage in Green Lake. Our daughter lives in Seattle and welcomes our Tangletown guests.

Susan Bailey purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Susan Bailey chose Seattle

We purchased this property in late May of 2014 and spent the summer and fall renovating both the house and cottage. We love craftsman architecture and the neighborhood is quite simply - fantastic!

Cozy respite

  • 5 of 5

Susan's place offered a clean, light, cozy, quiet, private, exceptionally comfortable sleep in luxury linens. Wonderful shower. A bottle of Pellegrino welcoming us on the table. Prime Wallingford/Greenlake location, cottage located behind a cool craftsman home. No hitches whatsoever. Treasure worth the splurge!

Great cottage, great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights and the place was just right. The cottage was spotless, the bed was extra comfortable, and the location was perfect. We traveled by bus to the U of W and to downtown, and ate in a wonderful Thai restaurant near the cottage. Green Lake is less than a mile away with a good running trail. We had the best ice cream at a place in Wallingford. Wonderful place.

our stay was okay

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was a bit small for two people. Having said that, we were not there other than to sleep and shower. I think that due to the very cold weather those few days, the cottage was hard to heat and keep comfortable. It might be the perfect place in the summer but not so much in the winter. It was clean, nicely decorated and quiet.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We noticed upon your check out that the remote for the heating and ac unit was set on cooling rather than heating. The sun (heat) and snowflake (cool) symbols look very similar. It appears the hvac unit was blowing cold air rather than warm air. We are sorry this impacted your stay. We have been very fortunate to have had outstanding reviews from so many guests since we opened our cottage in 2015. We would love to welcome you back one day so that we might have the opportunity to exceed your travel expectations. All the best.

From the moment we arrived until we departed, this beautiful cottage, we felt like we were wrapped in a warm blanket. Everything was perfect!

Susan was so accommodating and made sure we felt welcomed. After long days out in the city we looked forward to returning to our nest for wonderful relaxation and sleep.

Can't wait to stay here on our next visit to Seattle.

Beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Only stayed here for one night, but it's a beautiful place. If you have the money to splurge, I suggest you do so! Impeccably clean, beautifully decorated, and lots of little extras that would be great for long term stays. Close to Green Lake park, which is absolutely beautiful. Highly recommend!
