This studio was a perfect little space to stay for a couple night! Clean, quiet and of course, in a fun part of the city. The hosts were great and provided a welcoming atmosphere when I arrived. I would highly recommend staying here
Shortly after I arrived, Lori was there to greet me. It was my third stay in the studio suite and will book it again since my daughter lives a few blocks away. It is in a very safe, quiet, and lovely neighborhood. It is convenient to downtown Ballard and many fine restaurants.
The suite is cozy with everything you need.
I highly recommend it.
The guests were there to welcome us. We had a comfy bed and plenty of choices to provide cooling air into the room as it was in the 80's. We were able to walk to dinner on the water and walk to a great coffee shop in the morning. The homemade mint hand soap was a nice touch.
Doug & Lori were very accommodating to my boyfriend, black lab, and I when we needed 4 nights of housing between leases. Most places turned us down because of the size of our dog but they allowed him in their space. It is small and does not have a kitchen as advertised but they include a fridge with beverages & snacks. It had more than I expected overall and was perfect for us. The neighborhood is beautiful, quiet, and walking distance to the Locks, and a bit longer walk includes Golden Gardens beach & all the fun shopping & eating Ballard has to offer. I would recommend this to any traveler, and it is super easy to get around from here without a car. If you go in summer, you'll be able to see their urban garden! We were also a big fan of their unique tile work & stained glass in the studio.
My boyfriend and I loved staying at Doug and Lori's Studio Suite while visiting Seattle. The place was really cozy and clean, and filled with special details: fun books and guides about Seattle, a selection of herbal teas and coffee, hand made organic soap, and all different kinds of bathroom essentials. We slept really well in the comfy bed and loved the peacefulness of the neighborhood. The suite is perfectly located in the neighborhood of Ballard and we were able to walk to restaurants, cafes, the Ballard Sunday Farmers Market, Stone Gardens Climbing/Bouldering Gym, and the Ballard Locks. We were also in close driving distance to Trader Joe's (there is a little fridge in the studio to store goodies) and to other neighborhoods in Seattle so we never felt that we had to drive a ton to get places. We got a chance to meet Doug and Lori and we got some awesome recommendations on different places to eat (you must try Walrus & the Carpenter!). They are both really nice and friendly and were very respectful of our privacy. They were also flexible in accepting our late arrival. They have a beautiful edible garden, a loving dog, and some chickens. We will be staying here again on our next trip to Seattle.
Description was accurate and hosts were very responsive to requests. Beautiful little room in a quiet neighborhood.
Wonderful and perfect place to stay in Ballard. Will hopefully be back again.
The studio was lovely, and even nicer than the photos! Lori and Doug sent information about the neighborhood ahead of time that was very useful, and were extremely accommodating about our schedule and requests. Highly recommended as a quiet base to explore the area from.
Lori and Doug were great and provide an excellent accommodation! Great location, quiet, lovely neighborhood. Just walk down the hill to the locks. 1 to 2 minutes to colorful downtown Ballard. Nice cozy quiet cottage. I'll be back. Thank you team Lori and Doug!
The studio suite was very comfortable and in a great location. Our stay was really great and our hosts, Doug & Lori, were very nice and offered helpful info during our stay. The studio suite was just as it was described in the listing and it suited our needs very well. Would definitely consider staying again when traveling to Seattle.
I did not actually meet them but they left the cottage in perfect condition.
