Interaction with Guests
You may see us & our dog coming and going as we will all share the foyer of the home. However, once you enter into the guest suite, we will respect your privacy & space. Since we live upstairs we are just a phone call/text away and will happily answer any questions you may have.
Although we do have a friendly dog, he will not have access to your space.
Ballard is one of the best neighborhoods in the city, all biases aside! It offers tons of fun shops, local restaurants, bars, parks, cafes, farmers markets, scenic access to the Puget Sound, and lots of fun nightlife. The heart of downtown Ballard is an easy 1.5 miles from our home.
Within 3 blocks of our home you can walk to “one of the city's best food microhoods" as described by Seattle Met. This includes Delancey's, an amazing wood-fired pizzeria; Essex, a London inspired pub serving craft cocktails and small plates with a tasty Northwest twist; Honore Bakery known as one of the best French bakeries throughout the city; The Fat Hen a rustic Italian bistro with European flare serving breakfast/brunch items; Brunswick & Hunt a "farm to neighborhood" restaurant offering seasonal menu items, and if you're looking to let loose, head to Tarasco's known as one of the best karaoke bars.
Downtown Ballard, Phinney Ridge, Fremont, Green Lake, & Wallingford neighborhoods are all a quick 1-3 miles away where you can find tons of live music, boutique shopping, some of the best restaurants in the country, farmers' markets, award winning microbrews, bike paths, beautiful parks, and of course an abundance of local coffee shops.
