House rules
This place isn’t suitable for children under 12 and the host doesn’t allow parties or smoking.
The Cabin is a well-appointed, casual and comfortable houseboat located near everything Seattle has to offer. She has a spacious open concept with a
1-bedroom loft and two view decks. Located on Lake Union in a true urban oasis surrounded by nature. She's adjacent to Gasworks Park. A Big Green Egg and propane grill are available on the back deck, too.
A week's stay at the Cabin will be enough time to get oriented, settle in and truly unwind. Be warned though, you may never want to leave!

The space
Amenities: Fully furnished with well-equipped kitchen, 3/4 bath (with shower), only steps to onsite laundry. The covered back deck has a Big Green Egg and propane grill for gourmet outdoor cooking. One off-street parking permit. Burke-Gillman trail is across the street for biking and walking. High-speed wireless network. Basic cable. Well-behaved quiet dogs welcome upon approval.

Guest access
The property is floating on the water. Please note humans and canines need to be able to step on and off the boat - one to two steps up or down (depending on lake level) to the boat. Once on the houseboat, the sleeping loft and second floor deck are accessed via a wide comfortable ladder. This property may not be suitable for those challenged by stairs or uneven surfaces.

Other things to note
After booking, Gasworks Park Marina requires that a name, phone#, and email be provided to the on-site manager. A Welcome Pack with lots of good information will be emailed to you prior to your visit.

Gasworks Park Marina, where The Cabin is moored, is a highly-desired quiet small 70-slip houseboat community with coded gate access. The marina connects to beautiful Gasworks Park where dogs can be conveniently walked and great for human strolls, too. The Cabin sits on Waterway 19 across from Lake Union's longest stretch of natural shoreline with unobstructed views of beautiful downtown Seattle.

Retired almost two years ago and during that time decided to buy a boat, learn to cruise and spend a year or two exploring the Salish Sea. When it got to the point of knowing I would regret not doing it when I look back 10 years from now; i knew I had to try it. Finally found a sweet slow-boat trawler to cruise around and that's why I'm sharing The Cabin on Airbnb.
