The Space

This little cabin with a loft is nestled in the Cherry Hill/ Capitol Hill of Seattle. The Cherry Hill House located in the Cherry Hill/ Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. Some people even call it Pill Hill because of its proximity to the hospitals (one of which is right across the street). But it is technically not Pill Hill, it is just south of Capitol Hill, by about a five minute bike ride or a 20 minute walk.

The loft space itself has a railing across the end of it and a ladder up to it, and once up there you have a queen size bed, a small nightstand, and fan and a lamp. You also have your own small refrigerator in the cabin, in addition to the full kitchen that is available in the main house. In the lower area right now we have a small sofa bed.

Linens, towels and blankets are provided, and there is an oil radiator for heat in the winter, which is plugged in downstairs. The heat rises and warms up the sleeping loft nicely, and in the summer the window and the fan make it a comfortable, private space, no matter the season.

Out the front door of the cabin are some little steps up to the back door and back deck. There is also a brick walkway that leads along side the house, connecting the front yard with the front door of the back cabin. In the front yard are the communal gardens, which are in progress all summer long, and paces away is the main house with a full kitchen and a bathroom with a claw foot tub. The kitchen has a big fridge, electric stove, toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, cookware, dishes and flatware, an island with a sink and stools for bar seating, and a deck out back (with landscaping that is in progress during the summer months).

Due to our work schedules, the room will be ready by 3pm, but you can always leave your bags inside the main house in the entry way earlier if you like. Check out is by 11am.

Bear in mind, in the main house, there are two bedrooms.

Everyone shares the kitchen and bathroom with airbnb folks, so if any questions or issues come up and I am not around, Ryan is friendly and happy to help.

Of course, the kitchen and bathroom are used by these folks and the number of people who are around varies, especially since Ryan's work schedule has him at rehearsal or performances in the eveninigs, and airbnb folks usually come and go depending on the sights they want to see.

We have wifi throughout the premises, but it can be a little harder to get in the back cabin. You are welcome to use the main house to set up and access the internet, though, and we have a communal table in the entry way and an island in the kitchen with stools which both make for good internet surfing spots. We are right on the bus lines to Pioneer Square, Downtown, the University District, and the Eastside. Laundry available on site.

You won't find a better deal in this neighborhood for a private loft in a cabin, much less a totally separate space in a cabin.

Guest Access

Access to the back cabin and to the main house a few paces away where the kitchen and bathroom are located.

Interaction with Guests

It really depends on our work schedules. It can be very minimal, and sometimes we never even meet a guest, although sometimes we end up having dinner with them!

House Rules

*Quiet hours are loosely from 10pm to 8am.

*Guest will be charged a $50 fee if their key is missing after their stay.

*Feel free to use the kitchen and fridge but you must clean up after yourself.

*Also, keep in mind that street parking in the neighborhood is free but it is 2hr parking between 8am and 6pm, Monday thru Saturday. This means that you can park your car from as early as 4pm on the street and leave it till as late as 10am the next day without any issues. You must move your car every two hours between 10am and 4pm to avoid a ticket, tho.

*Please note that this is not a party house. We get up early here so no boozin' it up all hours of the night. ( I realize most of us don't behave like this but I feel it deserves mentioning.)

*If you have a guest over (such as your girlfriend or boyfriend) you must let me know as there is a per additional guest charge.
