We kindly request a two night minimum.

Thank you for your understanding.

The "Blue Door" Guest Studio is a self-contained two story loft/ studio located in one of Seattle’s most prestigious neighborhoods, North Capitol Hill. The "Blue Door" is a very special, comfortable and private little space that is connected to our detached garage. In its entirety, it is about the size of a hotel room but divided into two levels. The sitting room is on the ground level and the private entrance opens out to a beautiful shared courtyard with the main house. A very comfortable Queen sized bed is on the second level. Here in the bedroom you can enjoy a 32" flat screen TV with cable. The bathroom in the studio has a shower. The guest studio does not have a kitchen nor do we permit the use of a BBQ (due to insurance reasons) but the studio does come with wireless internet, a small refrigerator, microwave oven and off street parking. Please note, even during summer months most evenings in Seattle cool off and so most homes are not air conditioned. The guest studio is not air conditioned but does have a ceiling fan and good cross ventilation.

North Capitol Hill is known for its fabulous location within Seattle. We are just minutes away from both Downtown and the University District ... in fact we are two easy blocks from the #49 bus stop which will take you to both. On Capitol Hill, we are a seven minute walk to Volunteer Park and you will find numerous cafes, coffee houses, and stores located in both the 15th Street commercial area and the Broadway area; each about a 20 minute walk from the studio. If you are not into walking, you will appreciate your private off street parking space provided at no extra charge. We don't permit smoking inside (you may smoke in the courtyard) and we do not allow pets, although we do have two small dogs ourselves.

The studio is ideal for one person or a couple. It is not set-up to be child friendly. It is a fun creative space in an excellent neighborhood at a very reasonable price. We look forward to hosting your visit!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had an absolutely wonderful time staying at John and Craig's guest studio in north Capitol Hill! They were great hosts--met us when we arrived and made sure that we had what we needed, and the studio was a perfect place! It is very clean, cozy, and allowed us privacy while being in a great location to access different parts of the city. John and Craig even left coffee/tea/drinks for us as we arrived. We would definitely recommend it right away!

  • John and Craig welcomed my mom and I to their studio with a great tour of the space and fabulous recommendations for close by restaurants. The studio was amazing, easy to find, and close to the bus line. We would happily stay there again when back in Seattle!

  • Both John and Craig are very warm and welcoming hosts. Even on a mid-week stay, they were more than willing to accept us into their place. And the studio is about as warm and charming as they come. I also can not say enough about location and pricing. Being as close to the park, and Capitol Hill dining scene is what makes the place a total steal. The neighborhood is welcoming, and easy to get in and out of. It is very walkable. And there is easy access to the bus-lines.
    But overall, I must say that having two hosts that want to share their hospitality and grace with you, makes being in a different city much like being at home.

    Thank you,
    Christopher and Rachel

  • My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at John and Craig's property. Craig, who welcomed us and got us situated, was very hospitable and friendly, really helping us start our trip off on the right foot. The studio was clean, cozy, and well-stocked with toiletries and beverages, which we really appreciated, as it made us feel right at home.

    The location is fantastic--a short walk to the heart of Capitol Hill and an even shorter walk to bus lines that take you straight to downtown. We rented a car for our stay but quickly realized that the area is so safe, beautiful, and close to everything else that a car was unnecessary.

    I would absolutely recommend this studio to anyone visiting Seattle!

  • I would recommend this studio to anyone visiting Seattle. At first we were worried about being so far from downtown, but the location proved to be one of the best aspects about this place. The studio is quiet, but a short walk from lively shopping and restaurants. We had a lot of fun exploring the neighborhood, which is filled with beautiful houses and breathtaking views of the distant mountains. It was convenient to take busses into downtown, and we felt assured knowing our car was parked in a safe spot while we were out for the day. We will definitely be back!

  • We found the guest studio very comfortable and incredibly clean. John had paid attention to details that made our stay special, like comfy terry robes, some snacks/drinks in the frig, fully outfitted coffee/tea supplies, and bath needs. There is a lovely private patio area for a summer stay. The available off street parking is so valuable in Seattle; quite a nice addition to the package. We definitely will be returning to this studio, and members of our family have already booked a visit also !

  • I stayed in John and Craig's studio for two nights. While I did not meet john, Craig was so hospitable and kind. The studio is in a safe area that is just a short bus ride away from the busy and fun Capitol Hill area. Though small, the studio had everything we needed. I would recommend staying here!

    February 2014
  • John and Craig's studio is beautiful, very comfortable, clean and well located in a residential area, at walking distance from Capitol Hill. They were both very nice and gave us great information about the city and intersting places to visit. Definately a very good experience and we recommend it!

  • They say location, location, location. We really enjoyed our stay at John and Craig's for a short 2 day visit to Seattle. It was the perfect location for us, close to everything. Few parks within walking distance. The studio had everything we needed, even bath robes (and they are comfy)! Though it is attached to their garage, it is quiet and we didn't notice them getting in and out of the garage at all. Was easy checking in and checking out, and you get free parking! The only thing was, the heater was a bit tricky as the temperature dial didn't mean anything, you simply had to guess how much heat to turn on and when it gets too warm, just turn it low or when it's too cold, turn it up. Other than that, would definitely go back! John and Craig even had notes and recommendations for local restaurants/coffee shops for us.

  • Reserving was easy and the apartment was spotless and comfortable! Would stay here again.

My partner Craig and I have recently retired here in Seattle! We love our new city, house,and convenient neighborhood. The house we selected happened to come with a wonderful guest studio which we use often for our personal guests that come to visit. We also have a condo that we offer for short term rental in Phoenix. We are hard core Democrats, GOP friendly and welcome anyone who is fair minded!
