Jean and her family were perfect hosts! Clear/easy communication and the beautiful location helped make our first trip to Seattle everything we wanted and more. We loved staying here, and would highly recommend it for fellow travelers who enjoy peaceful retreats that are close to the action.

We loved our stay at Jean's house. She is very organized and made us feel welcome. The house is extremely clean and the location is perfect for our needs. We would gladly stay at this property again when we are in Seattle.

This place was lovely! The weather was beautiful during our stay so it was nice to have such a great yard to catch a few rays and read my book in. Jean was a really accommodating and gracious host and her home is beautiful with a very comfy space for guests. We were able to come and go as we pleased and had privacy but were able to still visit with Jean and chat when we wanted to. We loved this place!

I am the mother of two lovely teenagers. We are a busy family and enjoy many things. I especially enjoy attending my children's many sporting events and educational pursuits and hobbies. We love to travel together and experience new adventures. I also enjoy gardening, walking, reading, cooking and meeting interesting people. We love our home, as we built it ourselves from the ground up. We take great care to be good stewards of the earth and to practice simple living. We enjoy hard work and the craft of building and caring for our home and property.
