The Maple Creek House suited my needs perfectly.
I stayed here in Oct 2014 and Dec 2014 and I will be staying here again in Feb and Mar of 2015. Carol met me the first day and showed me her small but cosy older home in a very quiet area of northeast Seattle. There was a desk and chair in my room for studying and a good internet connection. I could control the heat in my room (off in the day, on at night). I took the 30 minute ride on the express 64 bus to downtown every week day. I was kept milk and OJ in the fridge for breakfast but mostly ate out. At times there were two other borders and we shared one bathroom. The other borders were all very respectful and quiet. There was also good washer and dryer for laundry. No problem with parking in the front of the house. A very safe, well lit, neighborhood. Grocery store and drug store and a boutique coffee shop within walking distance. (8 blocks) And Burke Gilman trail down a hill for those who jog. I could always reach Carol with questions by text message and had some pleasant conversations with her but otherwise she lets guests do their own thing. I found it convenient to take the 65 bus to Lake City and 125th on weekends (15 minutes) to study at the Lake City library or go to LA Fitness or go to the Post Office or Fedex for copying. Or from Lake City catch the bus to Northgate Mall and see a movie. Also the 71 bus and 65 bus go straight to University of Washington from Maple Creek House. The house is far enough away to be very residential and quiet but close enough to everything to be easily reachable by bus.
Perfect for me. (website hidden).
They take recycling seriously in Seattle so be prepared to separate your discarded stuff.
BB was very friendly and accommodating. Room was clean and cozy. House is easy to get to, great location, quiet street. Thank you!
I loved staying at Carol's Airbnb! As a writer, it was the perfect place to be creative and have the peace and quiet to write. In fact, the time spent at her house gave me the exact push I needed to start the layout of my first eBook!
It was exactly what I needed.
Carol was very kind and welcoming. A few more photos would have been helpful with my decision to stay as the home was not what I was expecting inside. The home was "clean", but rather dumpy...not worth the amount I paid to stay for a month.
I was not comfortable with the fact that Carol entered my room on multiple occasions without my permission. The whole time I was there I felt like I was being watched.
Pat, Sorry you felt offended, but I had to close your windows while you were at work because the neighbors were spray painting their outside walls green next to your room that week! Most of my guests would say eclectic and arty rather than dumpy- just a lifestyle choice I think. Some folks like a shinier and ultramodern look, some like comfy and cozy!
good communication, no problems whatsoever, a great place to stay

About the Host, Carol
Hi, I am the host at Maple Creek House in Wedgwood. I am a writer and artist.
A Seattle native, I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for our lovely natural areas and charming city. It is fun to meet folks from all over the world as they visit and study here. This is a great place for outdoor photography walks too.
