True Wallingford Craftsman

House - Entire home/apt · N 37th St, Seattle, WA 98103, United States

The Space

2 bedroom 1 bathroom house on quiet street, steps from bus stop to downtown. Walk to Wallingford shops/restaurants or to trendy Fremont.

Located a mere 4.5 miles from downtown Seattle, the Wallingford neighborhood is bustling with restaurants, cafes, pubs, bookstores, boutique wine/beer shops, clothing shops, grocery stores, farmers' markets (summer only), and much more.

More than 75 eateries ranging from sandwich shops to white tablecloth fine dining are within a leisurely 15 minute stroll (half mile) from the house. You'll need one minute to reach La Cantinetta, a fancy Italian place (email hidden)ly bar; 5 minutes to The Essential Bakery for their fresh croissants, bread, and espresso; 15 minutes to the famous Molly Moon ice-cream shop.

Expand your walk to 25 minutes (one mile) to the funky Fremont neighborhood, and you will have another 75 restaurants to choose from, plus dozens of bars, pubs, clothing shops, and music venues. The year round Sunday Flea Market is a local institution.

Super popular Green Lake and The Woodland Park Zoo are 2 miles away. Wallingford Park is an 8 minute stroll, and offers tennis courts, soccer field, 1/2 court basketball, and jungle gyms. Gasworks Park is 7 minutes from the house, and offers fantastic views of downtown Seattle and the seaplanes on Lake Union.

The Burke-Gilman Trail (run, bike, blade) is also a 7 minute stroll, and can lead you west via Fremont (1 mile), Ballard (2.5 miles), to Shilshole Bay Marina/Golden Gardens (5 miles) and the salt water beaches. Head east to reach The University of Washington campus (1.2 miles), or keep on going until you reach Chateau Ste Michelle Winery (23 miles).

Our house is in a quiet residential neighborhood, but super close to activities which can keep you busy day or night. Although in a dense urban environment, it offers a quiet and private front porch and backyard, and abundant street parking.

We live in this house, so the kitchen is well equipped: gas stove, microwave, toaster, glasses, plates, salt/pepper/spices, etc. We have another Seattle property, and move there while you are renting the house.

The living room has a 32 inch LCD TV (no cable), DVD player, Apple TV, and stereo. Our dining room table easily seats six. Each bedroom offers a queen size bed and the tiled bathroom has a combo tub/shower. Wi-Fi reaches from front to back porch. The house has a nice open feeling, with lots of west facing windows.

Come for 2 days or 2 weeks, but be careful...this place grows on you!

Special note: although we don't own a cat (nor any other pets), every few months we foster a cat from the local animal shelter. Our house is quite clean, but cat dander is almost impossible to eradicate. If you are highly allergic to cat dander our home might not be for you.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The house is precisely as the site described: a comfortable and lovely craftsman home. A very functional dining room and kitchen, and super beds. Good restaurants, grocery store, clothes, and great coffee. A visit to Essential Bakery is a must and within walking distance. The Gas Works park just down the hill from the house borders the lake and is a "gas" to walk or run around with the old industrial works still standing. Craig is a great host, offering plenty of suggestions for places to visit. The Univ. of Washington very close by as is downtown Space Needle, Pikes Place and all the amenities of the city.

  • This is a lovely space and Craig is very accommodating. Great Seattle location and a fully equipped house with everything that we needed. Highly recommended - looking forward to the next visit!

  • The bungalow was everything we had hoped, authentic, charming and extremely comfortable. From the 15 year old rosemary "tree" growing in the front yard to the breathtaking view down the hill to the city - it was exactly what we were looking for. The beds, alone, would be worth the price - firm mattresses and vintage linen sheets made for the best night's sleep we ever had on the road. The rooms were right out of Bungalow Living and I'll let others guess what the vintage switches represented on the kitchen blackboard. Great shower and whimsical decorations throughout. Molly and Craig were the best hosts imaginable. We'll be back - if we can ever find a free night!

  • I would stay here again without question.

    A fabulous home!

    This house is just as pictured, large and airy and very clean; approx. 5 min walk to gasworks park. We found it to be a very convenient location with nice food nearby....specifically the reccomended bakery down the block makes great Coffee and Gulten free bread.
    Craig was incredibly accommodating and very helpful.
    The house is an excellent deal and a well loved space.

  • Our family of four had a lovely stay in this well-appointed, comfortable home in a great, quiet neighborhood. The kitchen had everything and we enjoyed eating in the dining room. The house is near several parks which were walkable and a fantastic bakery. Running path was also several blocks away and shopping on Wallingford Avenue was close by. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone visiting Seattle with or without small children.

  • What a lovely place to stay! We were here over a long weekend to attend an event at the University of Washington and had a wonderful time. Craig is a fantastic host. He was quite flexible in terms of check in/check out and even left some goodies in the fridge and a welcoming bottle of wine. The neighborhood is in a great location, half-way between the university and Fremont districts and a short walk from Gaslight Park. Beds were comfortable and the shower hot. What more could one ask?

Wallingford is a great neighborhood with shops and restaurants in walking distance. Craig is a terrific host, we would definitely stay here again.

    September 2012
  • Craig and Molly's lovely Wallingford home was comfortable, convenient and perfectly suited for our family of four. They owners had everything nicely prepared for us after our long trip and even provided breakfast foods for our first morning. Craig is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the area (especially dining options), easy to reach and friendly. A lot of love has clearly been put into the house and its contents. We'd love to stay there again someday.
