Patti gave us a warm welcome and was a very helpful host! We enjoyed staying at her original and lovingly decorated studio in the middle of beautiful Ballard. Thank you so much again and all the best, Rebecca and Miriam
Patti and Benson made us feel right at home at their beautiful artist studio. We loved being able to go to the Ballard farmer's market, just a 5 minute walk away, and cook a delicious and local meal. The location is perfect to entertain yourself during your stay with lots of different activities, but also perfect to relax in the beautifully landscaped yard. Best of both worlds. The listing is accurate and I highly recommend staying here.
Patti and Benson's home is a historic and artistic delight in the midst of a wonderful Ballard neighborhood. The listing was quite accurate and Patti even made sure we knew that the bedrooms were upstairs and the bathroom downstairs. Patti gave us a warm welcome to her simple and tastefully decorated and charming 100 year old home/studio. The beds were comfy - the linens and towels lovely. There is even off street parking and a short walk to some of Ballard's best coffee and bakeries .
I had a wonderful experience staying at Patti's. She was readily available by text, gave me a warm welcome, and it was so fun seeing all of her artwork. The house itself is beautiful, and in a great location. Having parking in the back alley is AWESOME. I would definitely return on another trip to Ballard!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is pristine and beautiful with a fabulous, central location within walking distance to (website hidden) - the shower is awesome!
Thanks much to Patti and Benson - we'll be back.
The aesthetic at the house is lovely and peaceful. We enjoyed the quiet stay there and felt very comfortable. It's also just a short walk to great restaurants and coffee shops like La Isla and Hot Cakes.
