I own a home in NE Seattle (near Matthews Beach and University of Washington) off the Burke Gilman bike trail, so I get around Seattle by bike.
I live on the property in a backyard cottage (behind the main home) where my yellow lab (Brodie) and I live. I rent out the main house, a 3 bedroom/2 bath home to short term renters; my home is the perfect home-stay for the whole family, including your pooches.
When I travel, I love staying in Airbnb homes/flats that are walking or biking distances to the local farmers market, pub, or the neighborhood coffee shop.
More about me:
I'm an all season bike commuter (rain or shine) and I currently bike to work via the Burke Gilman bike trail. I'm a member of Warmshowers (a community of traveling cyclists and hosts) where I share my extra bedroom and bathroom (with a full shower & tub) for free to traveling cyclists. One of my guests from Portland wrote: "Lynda has a beautiful place, and I enjoyed staying there. It's in a quiet neighborhood "north of the cut" so it's away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, but also right near the Burke Gilman Trail so it's just an easy ride to all that as well. Though Lynda was on a tight schedule while I was there, she made time for some very pleasant conversation. She also made sure I wanted for nothing. Her home is warm and inviting, the accommodations were very nice, and Lynda was great."
Thanks (in advance) to all of the AirBnB owners out there... and for hosting me as your guest in the future.
