About this listing
Located in Capitol Hill, we offer a bedroom with a double bed in our remodeled basement. It has an adjoining den space with a couch -very comfortable to sleep on for a second or third person in your party. The entire basement space is very private. The only reason we're ever be in that space is to do laundry or to fetch our ski gear. (You also have access to the washer and dryer.)
Our home is in Capitol Hill, walking distance one way to downtown and all its attractions, while the other direction is City Park with museums and the zoo: Botanic Gardens is also walking distance. We are within a half block of a major bus line, a full block of another busline. Bicycle trails are everywhere. We could possibly loan you a bike!!
Also within one block are coffee shops, a four-star restaurant, many other ethnic restaurants, yoga studio, pubs, etc.
We love having people around, and are happy to advise you on how to get where you want to go.
