Views! Location! Stunning, separate top floor of our lovingly cared for home is like no other place in Eastlake: beautiful, quiet, with warm wood paneling, 13 ft. ceilings, and views you will never forget. One block from Lake Union, perfect for watching the sea planes, boats, and sunsets over the Olympic Mts. Away from the freeway, peaceful, and one-of-a-kind. Our village-like neighborhood, in between the University and Downtown, is a well kept secret with cafes and restaurants nearby. Welcome!

The space

Come and enjoy this beautiful, peaceful, and happy home-away-from-home with amazing views in the heart of Seattle! Our light and airy "Sky Cabin" is one block from Lake Union (where the film Sleepless in Seattle was made). If you would like to stay in a quiet, one-of-a-kind apartment, then the "Sky Cabin" is for you. It is a completely separate unit on the top floor of our lovingly cared for three story house and has cork floors and warm, birch wood paneling that make it feel like a cabin in the sky. The tall windows faces West with views onto Lake Union, the Olympic Mountains, and even a small view of the Space Needle. You'll have a master bedroom, a large bathroom with three shower heads and a heated tile floor, an open living space/kitchen with 13 ft. tall cathedral ceilings, and another small room for doing yoga, playing music, working (there is a desk and a printer), or just meditating while looking out to the lake. It is quiet and peaceful, with skylights that let in plenty of light. The deck is perfect for watching the kayaks, sailboats, paddle boards, sea planes, tug boats, and floating homes that make Eastlake such a unique and special neighborhood. The Sky Cabin is decorated in a mid century style with comfortable furniture and feels cozy and cheerful. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need for cooking, and there are two televisions and one dvd player. Wi-Fi is included. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes within walking distance as well as easy bus access to either downtown or the university. We are 5-10 minutes by car to both downtown and the university and 10-20 minutes by bus, depending on traffic. In the Sky Cabin I have Seattle and Washington state guide books and maps for people to use while they are here, as well as various board games for those nights you just want to stay in.
No pets, no drugs, must be at least 21 years of age, no smoking inside or out, and no extra guests.

Absolutely fantastic on so many levels. From the view to the cleanliness, it was all amazing. It's also in a very interesting area where you can easily walk to restaurants to get breakfast lunch and dinner. And so close to downtown that Lyft is super cheap. But the view was so amazing to wake up to everyday. I would post on Instagram and plenty of people wanted to know where I was staying at. For my first time in Seattle, I could not have picked a better place.

My husband and I loved our stay at the Sky Cabin...and the name is certainly fitting! The view and ability to sit on a balcony to enjoy it over a beer or cup of coffee was fabulous. We were in Seattle when it was unseasonable hot and humid (and smoking from forest fires), but the Sky Cabin stayed cool with the help of an AC unit. When we could though, we turned it off, opened up the windows, and enjoyed the view. The apartment has everything you need to stay comfortably - a small, yet fully functional kitchen, clean and well-maintained bathroom, extra room for work or yoga, comfortable bed and sitting area for relaxing, reading or watching TV (including DVDs or Netflix). We had a car with us and Gillian left helpful instructions on where we could park, and guest permit. We were able to park within abou 1-2 mins work both days so really easy and convenient. We would definitely stay at the Sky Cabin again, and highly recommend...especially for those looking for a longer term rental in Seattle as this place really has all the equipment to make a couple of week stay manageable and relaxing.

Gillian's place was great. The space was charming, comfortable, and had a great view of the lake. Everything is just as it looks in the pictures. The yoga room was perfect to wake up and watch the sun brighten the view of the lake! Also the shower is amazing! I recommend you book your getaway here

Perhaps the best view of Seattle anyone could ask for - with a ton of windows and natural light filling up the upstairs cabin. The yoga room is great for reading if you're not into yoga, the tiled shower is exquisite, the kitchen is cozy and well equipped, and I don't think I can ever stay anywhere else now when I'm visiting Seattle. It's just a perfect little getaway.

The Seattle Sky Cabin was absolutely perfect. Incredible views of Lame Union and Gasworks Park. Beautiful furnishings. Comfy bed. Heated bathroom floors plus three shower heads! Wish we could have stayed longer.

The views are incredible & lived up to our expectations based on the photos. The location is quite convenient to get anywhere in Seattle quickly. And we did not have a problem finding parking. Gillian's info provided is very helpful to find parking, restaurants, etc. I would recommend staying here if you visit Seattle. I know we will return :)
