CHECK WITH ME FIRST, HOWEVER, FOR COMPATIBILITY AND OTHER CONCERNS.
Our experience was wonderful! It was clean, bright and cozy in Doug and Lori's studio. It was easy to find and my son loved talking to the chickens. Our next trip to Seattle we will for sure be staying here again.
Stay was perfect! The room is lovely and we had no trouble checking in or out. The location is about 20/25 minutes from downtown Seattle, but there is a cute low-key downtown area with shops and food less than 5 minutes away. It was very peaceful and the Doug and Lori were gracious and responsive hosts!
The stay with Lori and Doug was Lovely! The room is nice and comforting in a safe and beautiful neighborhood. Walking distance to everything fun in Ballard! I also loved the (quiet) chickens in the garden! : ) Would stay here again.
This was the perfect location for a girls get away. Had easy access to all the great activities Seattle's has to offer.
We had very minimal contact with Lori and Doug, but they were very sweet and the room was lovely. We stayed in several airbnb's while on vacation last week, and their bed was by far the most comfortable! It was totally private and we felt comfortable coming and going as needed. They had a very nice set up with anything you may have forgotten or didn't have room to pack (hair dryer, shampoo, soap, etc). The room is detached from the house and has a full bathroom and mini fridge, but no kitchen. This wasn't a problem for us since seattle's amazing restaurants were part of the draw for our visit, but something to be aware of. They do however have an electric tea kettle, tea and instant coffee, which i thought was very convenient. I would definitely recommend staying with Doug and Lori, and would stay with them again!
Doug and Lori were great hosts, unfortunately we never got to meet them face to face but that was never a problem. The room was comfy and clean, well located and just what we were looking for. Had a great time.
Doug and Lori are great hosts! Their information and resources made it very easy to get down town and explore seattle. The studio its self is a very clean and a lovely place to stay.
