A fun to place to stay in a walkable neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

2 adults stayed for a few nights in June. Comfortable-looks just like the pictures. The area was fun to walk around to explore. The bus stop was 1 block away and went straight downtown for site seeing. (no transfers necessary) Owners were polite and helpful. We had a minor problem with the AC which we brought to the owners attention. Overall I would recommend this property if you are visiting Seattle!

Green Lake
Car: not necessary

***green lake / wallingford*** is the best neighborhood in seattle!

Green lake is seattle’s most beloved park. Its expanse of water and green space in the center of a dense urban neighborhood draws thousands of people daily from all over the city. The park serves as a natural preserve for hundreds of species of trees and plants, as well as numerous birds and waterfowl. The newly reconstructed 2.8-mile path around the lake provides a perfect recreational spot for runners, bikers, skaters and walkers. Many others use the athletic fields or visit the park for boating, picnics and swimming.

Green lake boat rental offers paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, pedal & row boats and sailboats.

Your children can enjoy the several playgrounds near the cottage, one of which is just 2 blocks away. On a hot day, head over to the wading pool or beach at green lake.

The cottage is a ten-minute walk to several restaurants:

* tangletown zoka coffee shop -- a great spot for hanging out

* hiroki specialty desserts -- yum!

* elysian brewing -- an intimate brewery-bistro

* burgundian bar -- a large selection of beers, a full-service bar, and seasonal food menu

* himalayan sherpa house restaurant -- authentic dishes of nepal, india, and tibet

* kisaku -- a neighborhood sushi restaurant

* mkt -- contemporary american fare with a dedication to northwest products

* diggity dog hot dog & sausage co. -- fun!

* mighty-o donuts -- homemade from scratch

* latona pub -- big selection of beers on tap, delicious food and sometimes live music

* krittika’s -- great thai cuisine and noodle shop

* the dish café -- simple, wholesome food for breakfast and lunch

* the butcher and the baker -- very popular for brunch of baked goods and meat

* tsui sushi bar -- a new sushi bar in the neighborhood

We're a 20-minute walk to the Wallingford neighborhood and 45th st with 30 more eateries.

Nearby grocery stores include trader joe's, qfc, puget consumers co-op, whole foods, and a few convenience stores.
