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 Green Lake

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!

What makes this cottage unique

The Green Lake cottage is unique and special. It is a rare find in urban Seattle. It offers all the fabulous benefits of city life complimented by a serene setting that is peaceful and quiet.

Incredible place!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this cottage for a week to visit my daughter who is a freshman at UW. The place is modern, impeccably clean with everything you could possibly need... the unit is exactly as shown on photos and the bed is very comfortable. The location is perfect for walking to the supermarket and lake. Plenty of space to park on the street in a beautiful neighborhood. Cable and internet are excellent. Easy access to the property and very kind and friendly hosts! This rental really deserved my raving review!,!

Beautiful Cottage, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The owners placed a great amount of attention to detail in this beautiful cottage. Everything we could possibly need, air conditioning (hot summer days), iron, fully equipped bathroom and kitchen and cute entrance made our visit a pleasure. A huge plus is the location, so close to Greenlake for walking and other great neighborhoods nearby.

Great place to stay, awesome location

This rental is exactly like the pictures and is immaculate. I would definitely stay here again. The location is great, with easy access to Green Lake and many restaurants and shops within walking distance. Highly recommend. Communication with the owner/manager was great and checking in and out was a breeze.

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.
