Woodland Park Guesthouse:
Come stay in our garden cottage just one short block from the Woodland Park Zoo. Our 1912 home is situated in the heart of Seattle's Phinney Ridge neighborhood, surrounded by other turn of the century Craftsman homes and just steps from popular locally owned shops, pubs, coffee shops and restaurants.
You'll find that we have easy access to several other trendy neighborhoods, such as Ballard, Fremont, and Green Lake. The #5 bus stop is just around the corner, so you can get downtown (Space Needle, Pike Place Market, etc.) without parking hassles. If you have a car, downtown is about 7 minutes away.
The recently renovated private studio is furnished with a new full size bed and couch. It has bamboo floors, dimming lights, floor heating, a small fridge and french doors that open up to a garden patio. The cottage has its own 1/4 bathroom (toilet and sink), making it ideal for short visits. (IMPORTANT NOTE: no shower, bath, or kitchen available) For your convenience, we've recently added a bedside table, luggage rack, small fan and small fridge.
*You'll find popular restaurants serving up coffee, breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert (A La Mode Pies!!) just one block away, as well as a 24 hour mini mart where you can load up on snacks. We just added a new fridge, so you can bring your own food too!
*$2 off coupons (up to 4 people) for the zoo are included. Please let me know if you would like a zoo coupon before check in. I'll gladly leave one on the porch.
*$5 off the zoo's Real Close tours.
** Halloween note: The zoo's Pumpkin Bash is underway!**

Great stay. Very friendly and the room well kept. I would stay there again and recommend it to friends.
My 2 year old daughter and I stayed in this lovely garden cottage the night before a party at the zoo. Our "girls weekend" couldn't have gone better. There was plenty of room for the two of us, and the backyard is fenced and secure and my daughter loved the nearby chickens. Kiley was an excellent hostess and was easy to communicate with and super helpful suggesting kid friendly places to play, eat and walk.
Kiley and Jeff were very communicative and super helpful when we booked our trip, and even though they were out of town during our stay, were easily reached when we had a question. The cottage is clean, modern, and had everything we needed. It is very basic but suited our needs just fine and we slept great. The neighborhood is wonderful and we felt very safe and private. Thanks for sharing your home with us Kiley and Jeff!
Kiley and Jeff were friendly, prompt, and very informative during all of our communications. Due to some last minute rescheduling (my fault), we were unable to actually stay at the property. Maybe next time! :D
Our stay here was great! Kiley was great with being flexible and communicating how to find the house and get inside. The space was great for our little family and our first trip to Seattle. Will definitely stay again!
We needed a last minute, single night stay and Kiley was quick to respond to my request. We just needed a bed and a toilet, so the lack of bathing facilities was not an issue. Phinney Ridge is as great neighborhood and you are located very close to the zoo and it is a short drive to Ballard and other interesting neighborhoods.
I am a freelance journalist who has covered everything from elections to epic snowstorms. My recent projects include work for Seattle's Urban Pollination Project and the Canadian based non profit, Free The Children. Jeff is a biologist at the University of Washington who primarily researches olfaction and learning in insects.
We love exploring the Pacific Northwest and take every chance we get to play tourist in our own town.
We look forward to meeting you!
