A neighbor coined my house 'The Happy House', because he said it made people happy when they were here. I am hoping that carries over to all the people who stay here. This sweet house, with its cheery décor, has a lot of personality and artistic charm. It is located about 8 miles north of downtown, in the eclectic Lake City/Meadowbrook area of Seattle. There are four bedrooms all with queen beds. The nightly rate includes up to 6 guests. After 6 guests, there is an additional $20 per guest per night fee. The efficient kitchen is well stocked and located conveniently next to the outdoor and indoor dining areas. The house has two bathrooms (one on each floor), a living room, dining room, TV room with DVD player, a washer/dryer, wireless high-speed Internet, and off-street parking for several cars. There is also a hot tub and an outdoor ping pong area! You'll find the beds lovingly made, fresh towels in the bathroom, and a coffee/tea service in the kitchen, in addition to other homey touches, so you can begin your relaxing vacation the minute you arrive.
What makes this house so special are all the different spaces for relaxing or mingling. Build a fire in the cozy living room or outdoor fire pit. Take a long, soaking hot tub and enjoy the night sky. Play a game of ping pong in the covered, outdoor ping pong area (with lights for nighttime playing as well!.) Make a bowl of popcorn and watch a movie in the cozy TV room. Hang out on the front porch with a glass of wine and take in the beautiful garden. You will feel like you stepped out of the city's fast pace into a magical world of its own.
The house is also conveniently located close to many Seattle favorites, all the while being off the main circuit. Greenlake, a popular Seattle park for walking, rollerblading, biking, swimming, paddle boarding and kayaking, is 3 miles away, The Burke Gilman trail is about a mile away. This paved bike and jogging trail is detached from most roads and winds its way from the north end of Lake Washington to just north of Lake Union; connecting you to other parts of North Seattle such as the U-district, Wallingford, Fremont and Ballard. Matthews Beach, where you can swim in Lake Washington, is only 2 ½ miles away. The house is located within walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants, a wonderful nature park, tennis courts and the Meadowbrook Community Center, with adjoining children’s play park and athletic track at Nathan Hale High. You can easily hop on a bus to downtown, just a half a block walk up the street.
