I am married and live with my husband, our 3 year old daughter, Zoe, and a 1 year old puppy, Rio!
We had a wonderful stay and can recommend the cottage! It accommodates 4 however there is only space for two at the kitchen counter. But nice places for breakfast and dinner close by! Quiet neighborhood and a lake nearby makes it a perfect spot for sports but also to explore Seattle and surroundings. We would choose it again!
Have you ever walked through the "show spaces" in an Ikea store? This cottage feels just like one of those spaces: well-designed, thoughtfully laid out, cohesively comforting. There's not a travel accessory that hasn't been thought of, even down to a lint roller! I was particularly a fan of the record player and small LP collection.
The Phinney Ridge location can't be beat. It's a quick jaunt over to Green Lake park for a beautiful 3 mile running trail, and a short distance to Fremont and Ballard. There's a bakery at the end of the block with Stumptown for a morning pick-me-up.
The only downside is that the cottage has some fairly thin walls, which means that nearby noise can filter in pretty easily. But compared to the door-banging of a hotel hallway, it's downright monastic.
Sarah's cottage was clean, nicely decorated, and super comfortable to stay in! We really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend this place.
I'm not sure that you could find better accommodations in Seattle for the price or a more responsive proprietor than Sarah. The cottage is perfectly situated in one of Seattle's finest neighborhoods and was ideal for our purposes. It was also a refreshing delight to be able to leave the car parked for the entire weekend. We will stay here every time we return to town so long as it's available. Thank you, Sarah.
Sarah's place in Phinney Ridge was awesome! She was nice enough to let us check-in a little early also. The place is exactly as advertised- clean, efficient, and in a cool neighborhood. The bus stop is just up the street at the corner which made it really convenient for us. All of the accommodations were comfortable and practical, I even did a couple loads of laundry while I was there. The cottage feels very comfortable and roomy. There were just two of us that stayed there, but it would easily accommodate a couple more or a few kids just fine. Sarah was easy to communicate with, mainly through text or airbnb messages, she responded quickly and had everything ready for us. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend Sarah's cottage to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Seattle.
Sarah and Ryan's cottage was outstanding. It was a very comfortable spot that is conveniently located. it was spotless with all the amenities of home. We would highly recommend.
The cottage had everything we needed! So much better than a hotel or even a B&B. We could come and go as we pleased without bothering anyone else, had complete privacy and could cook our own meals. Bed was comfy and the place was spotless.
I highly recommend Sarah & Ryan's cottage for a stay in Seattle. For our group of two couples and a baby---they kindly provided a pack 'n play---the space was cozy but not cramped. (The bathroom is surprisingly large. Nice!) The cottage was thoughtfully decorated, very comfortable, and stocked with everything we needed. We especially appreciated having a full kitchen, although the house is in a great family-friendly neighborhood with plenty of restaurants. Check-in was a breeze. A lovely, convenient home base!
A very comfortable, quiet and nicely furnished cottage at the rear of their property. The hostess provided many unexpected amenities including extra blankets, pillows, a variety of condiments, pancake mix, milk, waters, laundry and bathing supplies, and much more making it easy to feel right at home. There was a wide variety of records to select music from, several movies, as well as books to peruse. Accessing the Wifi was very easy and convenient, as was viewing just about any television programming one could hope for. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, cookware, full size fridge and glass top stove and microwave. The bedroom, although small held a very comfortable queen bed with luxuriously soft, warm coverings. It was an overall lovely cottage, with very warm and personable hosts, including Rio the dog, who once he knew you were friendly was easily approachable. I highly recommend the Cottage for a single person or couple looking to stay in a convenient neighborhood.
We had an amazing stay. The cottage was more than we expected and Sarah and her family were all so nice to us. They let us extend our stay at the very last minute. Me and my boyfriend got back one afternoon and we found flowers and a card from them because we were staying in Seattle due to a death in my family. We both thank them and cant wait till we come o town again since we know exactly where we will be going to stay.

I've known Ryan and his lovely wife Sarah for going on 15 years now. They have a fantastic house that is just a 1/2 block away from great restaurants, coffee shops and other fun diversions. I've also watched them remodel their cottage over the past year -- they've done an amazing job. Super comfortable, very private, and a great jumping off point for exploring Seattle.
