Doug and Lori are awesome host. The Studio was just what we expected and the neighborhood is amazing. If you are looking for a quaint, nice place to stay within walking distance to Ballard and may local attractions this is your place. I highly recommend.
We met the host on the last day of our trip. They were very friendly. The neighborhood was wonderful, though a bit far from downtown, but that had more to do with our needs in Seattle than the actual location. I wish we could have spent more time in Ballard. Delightfully close to the locks, a must see. There is a lovely skylight that woke us up on sunny mornings, so if you don't like to rise with the sun bring a sleep mask.
Great place to stay! Cute studio apartment within walking distance to many different venues. Love the area!
The Studio Suite is as advertised: clean, as inviting as pictured and in a fantastic neighborhood. We had exceptional weather so being able to have the windows and skylight open was a plus. With the curtains drawn for privacy, the space still had plenty of light. Radiant heating kept the whole room comfortable, and there is a large, cushy area rug to land your feet on in the morning.
Doug and Lori were excellent hosts from the first correspondence. We met Doug as we headed out for a run, and he recommended a fun route. We happened upon Lori in the garden, and she was quick to mention the aptly named Sunset Hill Park; the view is spectacular. They easily accommodated our past-midnight check-in.
If you are looking for a small, quiet place from which to walk to breakfast, a beach, coffee shops and even a small grocer, the studio is perfect for a single traveler or couple.
Had a great time staying in Doug and Lori's bungalow. The hosts were friendly and helpful. There were two of us, and the room was cozy and efficient. The skylight provided nice light and the floor heating kept environs comfortable. The location is not too far from NW Market shops and restaurants. Easy walk to Chittenden locks and park. Really enjoyed Ballard and surrounding areas much more than downtown touristy stuff. Had some great breakfasts/brunches in the area.
My husband and I had a great last minute overnight urban vacation staying with Lori and Doug! Close to downtown Ballard, the water and lots of great restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay there for an overnight again!
Great location and great hosts,comfortable space
The studio was conveniently accessed and in a great neighborhood. Perfect set up and clean and nicely decorated. Met both hosts and they each were a delight. Will be heading back there soon.
Lovely room in Ballard in quiet neighborhood in easy walking distance to the wonderful Chittenden Locks.
Simple, bright and sweet. This was a perfect spot to catch some zzz's between busy activities in Ballard.
