The Treehouse is located in the Columbia City neighborhood - an historic and amazingly active neighborhood in SE Seattle. We sit halfway between Columbia City and Lake Washington - above a large urban park. Thus the Treehouse is a quiet yet accessible place to stay in Seattle.
The Treehouse is near light-rail (Columbia City Station), bus service (Columbia City/Rainier Boulevard) and bike trails. We have both on and off street parking available.
Check-in: 3:00 PM - exceptions can be made with prior 48 hour notice

Our stay at the treehouse was wonderful and Jay was a great host. The lush setting was more like being in the woods than in the city. Columbia City is a quaint little neighbourhood with reliable transportation links to the airport and downtown. Be prepared to walk up and down slopes; you may want to cab/drive if you have luggage or heavy shopping bags.
Everything was just right as it was described! We loved Jay's place because it's like a little oasis: a cosy, nice and clean place! We enjoyed the living space including porch and garden! It was just the perfect choice for us.Jay's avery friendly and welcoming host and we thank him and his family for their hospitality!
My husband and I stayed at Jay's Treehouse for three nights. It is located on the hillside of Columbia City. The Treehouse is very clean and well equipped as it is described. We love sitting on the deck enjoying the breeze and walking around the neighborhood admiring the berry bushes. We didn't have rental car those three days. It was quite a hike from Columbia City Light Rail Station to Treehouse with two suitcases or groceries even it is only a mile away. The bed is very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay there very much.
We have stayed at the Treehouse several times. As usual, it was clean and comfortable. Thanks, Jay.
We had a wonderful stay at the Treehouse and Jay was the perfect host. The location and accommodation was perfect for our 12 night stay. Close to public transit to get us downtown and walking distance to Columbia City to enjoy restaurants and live music at the Royal Room. We fully utilized the tree house, enjoyed cooking some meals and sitting on the patio.
Columbia city is a great suburb of Seatlle. We fell in love with the local spots and enjoyed the neighborhood and all its sights and sounds. The tree house was a cozy spot with plenty of space for 3. It's a bit distant from the city if you do not have a car, but transit was very accessible. Bring your walking shoes and enjoy the neighborhood!
