CHANGES COMING TO MT. BAKER HOUSE! (please read if you plan to book after October 2013:
I'm switching things around a little at the house. I am moving upstairs and putting my guest accommodations in the large apartment below the house. This means that the guest rooms will now be 2 instead of 5. Nearly everything will remain the same, just the physical rooms will be different. More info to come. See photos.
Experience a wonderful historic Seattle neighborhood! (And in my humble opinion the best neighborhood in the city.)
This is a colonial revival California bungalow. The house is spacious and airy and gets great daylight. I've created a home-like atmosphere where the home is welcoming a tidy.
My rooms are designed around what I look for in a place when I travel: I like to be independent and have things quiet and comfortable. The house is set up so that you can come and go and be independent but also meet people and be social if you like.
My goal is to provide really great accommodations at the lowest cost to my guests. I do not make breakfast for guests but you can use the kitchen and there are two grocery stores very close by. Bathrooms are shared and there’s usually no problem getting in there when you need to.
The house is close to everything but it's quiet at night. The neighborhood of Mt. Baker is very diverse. There are many different cultures and types of people all around. The zip code is in close proximity to the 98118, which is the most diverse zip code in the country. Please please please do not think that because there are many cultures in this vicinity that it is an unsafe place. I’ve lived in the neighborhood for over 8 years and have never had a problem with anyone I’ve passed on the street.
Please note: there is no television in the house or (website hidden). Baker house is two blocks from the Mt. Baker light rail station, which will get you downtown in about 12 minutes, and to the airport in less than 25 min. You wouldn't need a car, but there is regulated zoned street parking. There's a QFC, Safeway, Starbucks, and cute Italian eatery (called Mio Posto) in easy walking distance.
Gorgeous trails and swimming at Lake Washington (Mt. Baker beach) also within walking distance.
No smoking. Wireless internet included.
Check in is 3pm, check out is at 11am.
When you book you'll receive a welcome letter from me telling you how to get to and get into the house.
I look forward to hosting you!
I have a key-less entry put into place. See welcome letter.
I am currently planning my wedding and working on opening a yoga studio. I am a hands off host. I try to meet each guest but I like to leave my guests alone to go about their business.
Not to brag, but Mt. Baker is the best neighborhood in the city. It's close to downtown and sites but you can also walk to Lake Washington and urban hiking trails.
Two blocks from Mt. Baker Light Rail station
A clean, comfortable place to stay. Emily was a great host - friendly and helpful - and has thought things through and left good clear instructions to keep things running smoothly.
Very comfortable, private, and in a great location. Convenient to public transport! Emily was a great host and very responsive when the door lock was acting up. Would definitely stay again.
Emily was an excellent host and if I would lodge here again if I visit Seattle. It is clear she's very experienced in this and knows that her guests wants. She answered any questions I had in a very timely manner.
I felt very safe in the neighbourhood and felt very comfortable leaving my things in the room I was assigned. I liked the coded entry system which meant I can come and go as I please. The place is right off the light-rail line which links to the airport and downtown.
My hubby & I needed a get away! And timed it perfectly with a job interview in the city! Emily's place was absolutely perfect! We didn't realize there were 2 rooms, but it didn't really matter. Our roomy was quiet and we left bright & early. The bed was comfy and the whole place is just very welcoming. The energy here is amazing! The homemade soaps & beer in the fridge are a nice touch!
Emily recommended some great gluten free restaurants near by. Miopesto was within walking distance, BUT the 10 degree weather was too chilly for our evening out! The atmosphere & pizza were great!
We'd definitely recommend Emily's place & may even find ourselves back!! PS He got the job!
I had a great time staying in this lovely, calm room. The house is adorable and really quiet-- close enough to the city center to be really convenient, but far enough away to be peaceful. The train station is only 5 minutes away, perfect location. The hostess is very thoughtful-- she even makes her own soap.
This is my 3rd or 4th stay at Emily's. Nuff said. :-)
If you stay in the wintertime in Emily's comfortable, convenient, clean and graciously appointed basement suite apartment, BE SURE to get someone to show you how the heaters turn on!! We froze our first night, but were comfortable our second. Very nice place and a really great host. We fell in love with our flat-mate, who was so nice about switching rooms so that my party could have the room with the two beds. REMEMBER TO BE CRYSTAL CLEAR WITH EMILY which room you want: ZEN Room = 2 beds; BLISS Room = 1 bed. We'd stay there again, it's a really great place. Thanks to Emily for offering her house.
Lucky is the traveler who can stay at Emily's Place. The neighborhood is interesting, the public transit is super convenient. The beds are comfortable, the apartment is clean, and the privacy is a bonus. While you are not sharing the space with the host, you share it with other guests. It was my luck to have a delightful apartment ma. It enhanced my stay. I plan to stay here again when in Seattle because Emily's Place just keeps getting better and better. If guests do their part, Emily can keep the rates down. The duties are not difficult but I noticed, with the turn over in guests, that some guests are more conscientious than others. I like Emily 's Place and her reasonable rates. If you communicate with those you share the space with and decide who does what, you will be doing your part to keep a good thing going.
写真通り可愛く、清潔感のあるお部屋でした！ タオルの貸出しもあり親切でした。 泊まったお部屋にもキーが付いていたらもっとよかったです。 一目だけでもホストにお会いしたかったです。
Great, convenient to the airport, easy to get in and out. Emily was very friendly and accommodating.
