About This Listing
Private room in small home with single Artist, in a great, central Seattle location.
It is a shoeless house. The bedroom is on the 2nd floor. The bathroom is on the first floor and is shared with the host.
Wi-Fi, street parking.
The listed room is most comfortable for 2 guests. There is a foldout futon bed in this room for a third person, or as a second bed option, for $10/stay. The open futon does make the room a bit tight.
If you have a third guest, and the room is available, I have a twin bed in the "sun room/laundry room" which is appropriate for a single guest. There is a $20/night charge for this extra room.
Wi-Fi, Kitchen access, Coffee and Teas
Interaction with Guests
I make myself available, and enjoy some conversation when it feels mutually appropriate. Guests are always free to come and go as they please.
There are several bus lines within 2 blocks of the house, making transportation to most parts of the city very easy. Easy access to downtown and anywhere in Seattle. Ten minute walk to 2 fun neighborhoods, Wallingford and Fremont, and an easy 1.5 mile walk to the University of Washington.
Near Woodland Park Zoo, Greenlake, Gas Works Park, Hiram Chittenden Locks, University of Washington and more!
I love showing off the city to guests when the opportunity lends itself, and offer a 2-4 hour driving tour that is great for learning your way around the city for future exploration or getting a broad overview of many of the wonderful spots that make Seattle so exciting and special.
Directions from SeaTac Airport:
Take the "Link," Light Rail to the last stop downtown - "Westlake." Exit to 3rd Ave and Pine St, and look for the #16 Bus going North (to Northgate).
Arrive Stone Way N & N 42nd St - 16 min (10 stops) (Previous stop is Stone Way N & N 40th St)
FYI - Though also convenient, the E-Line has only one less stop, and is a longer walk to the house.
It's a shoeless house and you're welcome to use the refrigerator and kitchen.
Roger was super friendly, didn't see him except for check in and after he noticed I left my retainer in the bathroom! Huge lifesaver!
You are staying in a room an earshot away from the owner and/or another guest. You share a bathroom (down the stairs from the room) with Roger or the other guest, and possibly a guest who stays in the sun room adjacent to the kitchen (not an enclosed room, just a screen separation). This was a little problematic because we had our 3 year old and we woke up earlier and felt like we were disturbing everyone in the house although we received no complaints. We also felt like we had to stay in the room...we didn't want to disturb anyone else.
The bed and room in general is small, perfect for a single traveler in my opinion, preferably male. The bed is ok. This isn't deluxe accommodations but they are fine. It was unseasonably warm and being upstairs was a bit hot. Roger had a fan for us which helped a bit. Area is great! No need for car. Good food everywhere.
I liked my stay in Roger's house. I was arriving quite late, but Roger was waiting for me in order to explain the necessary details of his house. The neighborhood is quiet, but close to a nice commercial street with lots of restaurants and shops. Going downtown is rather easy as there is a good bus connection just two blocks from his house. Apart from that, Roger is a nice guy to talk with.
I know where to go next time I'll be in Seattle.
We only stayed at Roger's house for one night but he was a very memorable part of our first trip to Seattle! Roger gave us a tour of the house and explained everything thoroughly. He came off as very open and friendly.
The neighborhood itself is quaint and just on the other side of Union Lake from downtown. Location was far enough to be peaceful but close enough to be convenient.
The house itself is indeed old, but has all the amenities you could ever need. his bathroom is spotless as well! The bed in the upstairs room is very comfortable. :)
Roger was an interesting and a friendly host with plenty of great suggestions for things to do in the immediate area. His home is adorable with everything a traveler needs. The E line is nearby, so we were able to get to downtown Seattle as well and easily by the most direct route. Sure beats parking! The kitchen was available to us as well. We enjoyed our stay.
Roger ensured a well-organized and easy stay. The house is clear and quaint and the upstairs bedrooms are connected to the rest of the house (and the bathroom) through a steepish wooden staircase. The location is close to public transportation and is on a quiet street.

The furnishing and bedding are budget-oriented and tidy. The location is close to public transportation and is on a quiet street. I would recommend it to everyone who feels comfortable navigating staircases.
