Your hideout in Seattle! Surround yourself with trees, birds and calm while you visit the Pacific Northwest. Our little bit of country in the city to share. We can't wait to meet you!
--Please let us know your arrival and departure plans, once you know them!
--Smoking allowed outside. Recreational marijuana is legal in Washington. Please smoke outside. If it's pouring rain, please smoke on the porch outside! Thank you!
--Please lock the door if you are leaving the house.
--Please turn off the porch light and mud room light once you are in for the night. I will do my best to turn them on in the evening, if you are out.
--Seattle is working hard to reduce our land fills! -Please recycle clean paper, glass and plastics in the labeled container in the closet.
-Organic waste: food scraps, bio-stuff, tissues or food-soiled paper (pizza and take-out boxes) can all go in the green container in the bathroom. More bio bags are under the sink.
--Pets! We've hosted a great many dogs, cats and one bunny at the Metrobilly! Our dog gets really excited about any pet visitors, so we ask common sense and to make arrangements for the dogs to meet if you want them to! Cosmo gets along with nearly every dog, but plays really hard, so we want to have a test-run meeting before any she starts any mayhem!
--We ask for respect and common sense! And, to bug us with any question...large or small. We hope to make your stay THE MOST comfortable!
My husband and I welcome you to our Metrobilly Retreat! It's slowly getting less rough around the edges, as we each find time to work on projects. We are both artists and create chiefly with metals; my work is generally small and often wearable, whereas my husband makes bicycles and pieces on a larger scale.
We practice yoga and keep fit with cycling and exercising our dogs, and attempt to keep our brains working.
We are teaching ourselves to make wine and cider, and transforming our patch of land into a garden with edible and colorful characters.
We both spent our growing years traveling/moving, and currently travel every chance we can get. This means, we know how important it is to be comfortable, cozy and worry free. We are delighted to help you feel at home as you adventure out into Seattle!
