We spent four days at the cottage, and had our family Christmas there. It’s a beautiful location, on a hill overlooking Seattle. It’s a cute, family-friendly neighborhood. The cottage is small, but cosy and heated well by a wood stove. The stove was on and had heated up the place nicely when we arrived.
The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable. We also found everything we needed in the kitchen to make and serve our meals.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. But we had a couple of issues: There was a big crack in the frame of the top bunk bed (which my younger son had looked forward to sleeping in). He didn’t feel safe sleeping on it, so my older son volunteered to lay out a bedroll on the floor and give him the bottom bunk for our stay.
Then on our last day, as we started using the washing machine to wash the linens, stinky sludge started backing up in the bathtub. The kitchen sinks began draining very slowly. Part of the deal at the cottage is that you do the cleaning at the end of your stay (which should take about 2 hours). Unfortunately, the backups made this a messy, stressful time—not the best end to our stay.
Meg was friendly and responsive to our texts, but the holiday wasn’t the best time for getting people in for maintenance and repairs.
Nice place, nice neighborhood. Easy rental. Host was on top of everything from the security to the cleanliness. You do have to clean the place yourself, and the cleaning list is a bit involved which made a 1-night stay a little stressful, wouldn't be bad for staying several nights. Eat at Chaco Canyon cafe while you're here, right down the street and so good!
What a wonderful place! I would highly recommend Meg's cottage for those staying in Seattle. We hope to be back again soon!
Great place to stay and just minutes from so many great places in Seattle! Meg was extremely helpful and responded to all of my messages within a minute or two. I would definitely stay here again!
We had a great time at Megs's cottage, it was very well kept and has good transport links to downtown Seattle. There were 9 of us and we fitted fine and all had a thoroughly enjoyable experience!
