Sweet Cabin @ the Cherry Hill House

Cabin - Private room · E Jefferson St, Seattle, WA 98122, United States

The Space

This sweet little cabin is nestled in the Cherry Hill/ Capitol Hill/ Central District of Seattle. The Cherry Hill House located in the Cherry Hill/ Capitol Hill/ Central District neighborhood of Seattle. Some people even call it Pill Hill because of its proximity to the hospitals (one of which is right across the street). But it is technically not Pill Hill, it is just south of Capitol Hill, by about a five minute bike ride or a 20 minute walk.

Out the front door are the communal gardens, which are in progress all summer long, and usually go dormant in the winter. Paces away is the main house with a full kitchen and a bathroom with a claw foot tub. The kitchen has a big fridge, electric stove, toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, cookware, dishes and flatware, an island with a sink and stools for bar seating, and a deck out back (with landscaping that is in progress during the summer months).

Due to our work schedules, the room will be ready by 5pm, but you can always leave your bags inside the main house in the entry way earlier if you like. So check in is technically at 5pm, but that means check out is later, too - at 2pm.

In the main house, there are two bedrooms. One is off to the left of the kitchen and is listed on airbnb. The other is occupied by a woman named Erinn, who lives in the bedroom across from the bathroom, which is down the hall off to the right of the kitchen. Erinn is a 30 something sweetheart, very laid back, and works at the University of Washington. She has one cat - Aza, who is friendly, fat and happy, and goes in and out through the cat door in the back. This is why we say that there are cats here - they are not in the cabin, but Aza does roam in the main house and outside.

There is also a cabin in the back that is listed on airbnb occasionally. This is who you will share the kitchen and bathroom with, so if any questions or issues come up and I am not around, Erinn is super friendly and happy to help.

There is also an area of the living room that has a bed behind a large shelving unit that is listed on airbnb. There is a little cabin in the front yard that is also listed on airbnb.

Of course, the kitchen and bathroom are used by these folks and the number of people who are around varies quite dramatically, since Erinn's work schedule has her out of the house as early as 5am some days.

We have wifi throughout the premises and we are right on the bus lines to Pioneer Square, Downtown, the University District, and the Eastside. Laundry available on site for $2 per load. You won't find a better deal in this neighborhood for a private bedroom all to yourself, much less a totally separate space in a cabin.

  • We had a great weekend in Seattle, that includes of course the Sweet Cabin, the place was warm, clean, and cozy, and we can definitely recommend this to others. The main house is right beside the cabin and the cat is wonderful. Thanks for all, Monika.

  • Great little room for an overnight stay, very conveniently located. Didn't have a chance to meet the host but she is so well organized and set-up it was a very smooth experience.

  • Nice little warm comfortable cabin sleeping space on a cold rainy Seattle night! Main house just steps away, really nice people greeted me and chatted. This place is just excellent

  • The Sweet Cabin is a cute space with a bed and heater, perfect for visiting Seattle when you spend most of the day out. The area is great-- close to all the main bus stops and just a short ride away from downtown Seattle and University of Washington.

    My friend and I spent our three days in Pike Place Market (Great Wheel and Pike Place Chowder), University of Washington, and a student-friendly cafe called Ugly Mug Cafe (studying, of course-- what else would you do on vacation). The place was great for a chill getaway and had a home-y feel overall.

  • Cute little cabin - just a bedroom. Basic place to sleep, but nice to access kitchen/bathroom/etc in the main house. Had a little trouble with the wifi, so wasn't able to work ... glad that I brought a good book to read! Neighborhood is so very convenient to hospital and bus lines.

  • We unknowingly arrived a few hours before check in time but were welcomed nonetheless. The only problem with the room was that it was extremely cold. There was a small heater in the room (which with much appreciation was turned on to warm the room while we were out), but it seemed to have been broken. With the blankets it was warm enough for the two of us overnight, though getting up in the morning was difficult! Beyond that little mistake, great place.

  • For the price this would probably be an adequate place to stay in the Summer, though would not recommend for the colder months. The location is great with a bus to the city just down the road, but the cabin itself is unbelievably cold and only supplied with a tiny hardly-functioning heater. There were 7 people staying whilst we were there, all sharing a single bathroom and kitchen - and the kitchen only had one chair so there wasn't really anywhere warm to chill out when it was raining outside unless you sat on the kitchen floor... though I only met Monika once she was friendly and left detailed instructions on how to get to the location etc. Overall, probably too many tenants for it to be a comfortable stay and was comparable to staying at a hostel without many amenities.

  • Great place to stay in the heart of Seattle. Everything was set up nicely and the people were enjoyable to spend an evening with.

About
I laugh at myself more than pretty much anything. I used to own a bar on Capitol Hill in Seattle. Now I manage my duplex in Seattle and I I also run an artist residency program in New Mexico called Starry Night Retreat, which is where The Blue Room is. Doing that takes me away from Seattle periodically, and it is a lifelong dream to have created a place that values artists and creatives by providing them a place to make new work in an inspiring setting. When I am in Seattle I periodically consult with small business owners to help them with their operations and books. Boring as it sounds, it is actually pretty fun, and I love my clients. I have owned my duplex in Seattle for 6 years, and my four plex in Truth or Consequences for 12 years. At both of them, I have literally had my hands on every piece of the place. I have learned a lot about renovation and property management in the process, which has been interesting and has been really useful with the artist residency program in New Mexico. In New Mexico, I have one unit that is for vacation rentals and the others are for artists, so if you are looking to spend some time with artists form all over the world, this is your opportunity! I also really love to travel. Some of my family is from Argentina, and I have been there as well as Mexico, the UK, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Morocco, Turkey, Greece, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Norway, and of course, it being so close, Canada. I have also traveled to 40-odd of the 50 states. I love road trips, train trips, airplane trips... you get the point. Experiencing other cultures is a great adventure for me, as is learning phrases in other languages. As a global citizen I want to be able to thank a person in their own language when I am visiting their country, so I always try to learn to say please and thank you in the local language wherever I visit. My goal is to provide a comfy and affordable place to stay, no matter how long you stay for. That means a safe, secure, and clean place to make my home away from home - even if it is only for a night or two. I'm not one to need 5 star amenities in fancy hotels where I just end up with hidden fees for things like a candy bar or wifi or whatever. I'm much happier if I can spend my money on things around town and experiences in a place I've never been before. This summer I have big garden plans for the front yard in Seattle, and in New Mexico. I have friends who have already started seedlings in anticipation of our summer season. (!) I totally believe that Seattle has the best summer in the entire US, and the summer in New Mexico, hot as it is, is one of the most beautiful place I've ever seen a summer sunset. My long term dream is to bring these two facets of my life together - AirBNB and artist retreats - and run artist residencies and retreats in several cities that also have space for vacationers so that the two groups have more opportunities to overlap, swap ideas, and hang out like, say, over a good campfire or a cold beer. I think everyone is a creative in some way or another, and I like to encourage that in people whenever I get the chance. But like I said, that's a long term dream. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy your stay!
