About this listing
Enjoy the excitement of Seattle and city life in a quiet and green retreat at the Center of the Universe- Fremont!
If what you're looking for is a cozy, private cottage with easy access to everything Seattle has to offer, then you've found your new home away from home!
Our charming cottage was originally built in 1950 and is positioned at the back of the large garden behind the main house. The lush garden provides a private oasis from the bustling city. With a super comfy bed, large bay window and skylights above the bed, the cottage is a dreamy place to relax.
As it is a studio, the bedroom, living room, and kitchen are one. There's a small table and chairs for breakfast or tea. The bathroom has been described as European style – it is a small, tiled room with a toilet, sink, and shower overhead. The water heater is relatively small so short showers are recommended.
You'll find tea, coffee, fresh towels, and other necessities (the bathroom cabinet is stocked with toiletries in case you forget anything).
There are 2 beach cruisers you can use to ride down the bike path and explore the neighborhood.
Wifi is provided.
I've been an airbnb host for the last 4 years and it's such a pleasure to share our space! My family and I love meeting our visitors and are available to answer any questions you have during your stay.
We are a 5-minute walk from “downtown" Fremont (but just far enough to avoid the noise from the bars during the weekend). Here you'll find dozens of restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops. (For some fantastic Korean-fusion try Revel or for a locally brewed beer head to Fremont Brewery)
The bike path is just down the hill and winds along the ship canal. This beautiful ride (or walk) will take you to the shops in Fremont or further to the U-district (where the University of Washington is).
Buses stop at the bottom of our hill and will take you to Ballard in 5 minutes or downtown Seattle in 10.
You won't need a car to explore but street parking is plentiful!
Since this is a family neighborhood we ask that the noise be kept down in the evening. Please make yourself at home and respect it as if it were your own. Enjoy!
