The Space

Charming and pristine pied-a-terre in the midst of our beautiful and private garden. My priority when traveling is a super clean and comfy bed so that's the centerpiece of the cottage. With lots of windows that look out to the garden and skylights above you it's a dreamy place to relax. You have a private deck to sit below the big apple tree and read with a cup of tea....just steps from a path along the canal to 'downtown' Fremont with its dozens of restaurants, ride the bikes over to Ballard and all of it's great restaurants and shops, or the bus stop and 10 minutes to downtown Seattle. We have two 'beach cruisers' for your riding enjoyment down the bike path.
The bathroom has been described as European style- it's a small tiled room with shower, toilet and sink, white and clean. Unlike in Europe, it has both a window and a fan for ventilation!
We've been hosting for airbnb in the cottage for a two years now and it's so fun to share our special place with wonderful people from all over! Be our guest!

  • Omg. Nan has created a standard totally unfair to judge others by! Her cottage is tucked away in a magical garden of fruit trees, plants and flowers. Everything was perfect, including the location only steps away from bus stop. This whole experience was perfect!!!! Thanks Nan!

  • This was our first stay using airbnb, and now the bar has probably been set unrealistically high for all subsequent stays at other airbnb locations. The cottage provides a thoroughly Thoreauvian experience in the midst of a thriving city. It was quiet, cozy, and stocked with virtually every amenity you could imagine. We didn't get to meet Nan, but her personality infuses all of the wonderful details of the cottage. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay in Seattle.

    Thanks Phil I need a boost today and your review was just the thing! All the best, Nan

  • A beautiful, compact cottage that had everything we needed. It was clean, comfortable and just as depicted - no faked wide-angle shots here! Really convenient for downtown, with frequent buses just down the hill. And although close to a busy road, it is very quiet; almost like being in the country. We would definitely want to return ...

  • The cottage was amazing! So cute and the perfect little hide-away. The location was excellent, just minutes away from Fremont and we did all of Seattle on public transport without a problem! For Brits like us there was a taste of home in that cottage (though a lot lovelier than my actual home) and we loved being in a tranquil garden - so peaceful. Would absolutely come back in a heartbeat. Anyone thinking of staying will love it - promise!

  • Nan's charming Fremont garden cottage was everything we were expecting and more. It's a really cool little studio at the back of a beautifully lush and dense garden. Very secluded, very quiet. Nan & Mark were really great hosts. A warm welcome and a pantry & fridge stocked with treats fortified us after a long drive in.
    We were in town for Fremont Fair and the cottage was so close to all the action. We loved Nan's garden cottage. We will be back!

  • What an amazing cottage! It was like stepping into a fairy tale. The grounds were lush and beautiful and the cottage was a dream. So clean, so comfy, just delightful. The location cannot be beat. You're close to everything. There is tons of parking. I felt very safe and taken care of. Nan is so sweet and nice... I wish I got to spend more time chatting with her! Finally, my favorite part if my stay was Delphine- Nans adorable bunny!! What a personality! So sweet and fun to watch run around her little yard. I can't wait to go back!

  • My husband and I stayed at this lovely cottage for 2 nights! We loved staying here Nan has done such an incredible job of making this cottage feel so welcoming. The mini kitchen was perfect for hearing up leftovers and making a quick breakfast! We would def stay here again!

  • What an absolutely marvelous place to stay! It was clean, cozy and so secluded. Sitting in the garden (which we wish we'd had a chance to do more) you wouldn't even know you were in the city. You couldn't ask for better hosts. Even though we never met Nan face to face on our 10 day stay there was easy communication via email. She saw to it that our every need was met... without even asking I might add. We will certainly be staying here again if it is available the next time we are in Seattle.

  • I stayed at the cottage for 6 nights and Nan was the perfect host. The cottage was very clean and had all the necessary amenities. I would definitely stay there again. Thanks so much Nan!

  • Nan's cottage in Fremont is located in the heart of Seattle minutes away from downtown, the Ballard district, beautiful city parks and great tea shops. We enjoyed walking the path from the busyness of the road through the mossy garden into the quiet cottage, where we were able to prepare meals and relax. We were happy to meet Nan on the morning of our departure and had a lovely chat with our very warm hostess. My partner and I had a great time...

I'm a native Northwesterner and love to travel! My husband and I have lived in our house in Fremont for 25 years with many pets and raising our daughter. I love to travel, especially Europe, read, cycle (last summer I cycled in Holland for a week by myself and found it sooo relaxing! And just this month I bought myself a Dutch bike for slower and more scenic riding. I put on a cup holder for my tea!) and drink tea- our house blend is Yorkshire Gold mixed with Vanilla Coconut Black! I really like people and find airbnb a wonderful way meet and host other people in our sweet cottage. I love Thornton Wilder's quote: WE CAN ONLY BE SAID TO BE ALIVE IN THOSE MOMENTS WHEN OUR HEARTS ARE CONSCIOUS OF OUR TREASURES.
