Capitol Hill Garden Cottage With Free Off Street Parking + No Cleaning Fees


Property Details

Updated: May 26, 2015
Free-standing cottage - studio with 1 bath (sleeps 2)

Small Space, Big Style, Modernist Sensibility. Tucked into a lush courtyard, this cottage in Seattle’s renowned Harvard-Belmont Historic District is a charming little gem.

The 320-square foot cottage contains a queen-size bed and accommodates two guests. There is a well-appointed kitchen, three-quarter bath, washer and dryer, secure wi-fi connection, wood-burning fireplace and dimmable lights throughout. When the sun is shining, the gazebo in the courtyard is the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine.

Dedicated off-street parking allows you to leave your car and explore Capitol Hill on foot. Within a half mile you will find espresso bars, hand-forged donuts, a ramen shop, fine dining, an independent movie theater, a public library, gas, groceries and tree-lined streets of gracious, early 20th century homes. The neighborhood boasts the city’s only residential Landmark District, which is featured on numerous architectural walking tours. The location on the west slope of Capitol Hill also makes this cottage convenient to the vibrant South Lake Union neighborhood, home to the Museum of History and Industry, the Center for Wooden Boats, the REI flagship store, and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

About the Owner

Hello! We are Erik and Pamela, both natives of the Pacific Northwest. After meeting in Seattle, we moved to New York and Washington, D.C. and eventually decided to return home in 2008. We love fussing over details relating to this vacation rental, when we are not working at our day jobs as an environmental attorney and residential real estate broker/freelance photographer We adore biking, skiing, fishing and trading notes with pretty much anyone on the vibrant restaurant scenes in Seattle, Portland and Vancouver B.C. We also love renovating homes (we are on our fifth in 11 years). There's just something addictive about the process of creating something personal, beautiful and functional for us, our friends and our guests to enjoy. We thought we received the highest compliment ever when one of our contractors asked if he could bring his wife to stay at the cottage for their anniversary.

Beautiful place in a lovely quiet neighbourhood. Capitol hill is full of great food and bars and we walked everywhere! Everything is provided in the cottage, including shower and hair essentials, and coffee/tea/cream for the mornings. Dishwasher and washer dryer too. Stay here if you can! Very highly recommended.

Where do I even begin describing our wonderful stay here! My husband and I spent our 2 year wedding anniversary at this joyful little studio. We arrived late after 10:30pm from our flight. We came into the studio easily (keypad lock code) and extra key available just in case. The lights were on and the radio was set to the most eclectic station (which we turned on religiously every morning we were there, we LOVED it). This place was designed and equipped with all the essentials you'd need to feel at home away from home. Located in Capitol Hill close enough to downtown (10-15 min) but far enough for peace and quiet. Top Pot doughnuts was down the street and a little convenient store (where we purchased fire logs). Downtown Capitol Hill had all the cutest places to eat total hipster-ville (Liberty bar- whiskey & sushi was the coolest! Witness chicken & waffles MUST TRY). The studio was perfect equipped with tiny kitchen, stove, dishwasher, mini refrigerator (with ice cube maker!) cooking utensils, etc. The washer & dryer came in handy during our 10 day stay. The bed was cozy and came with a heated mattress pad adjustable setting for each side (big plus since seattle was going through a cold spell during our stay). There's plenty of space for 2 people to have a comfortable stay here. This studio was clean and organized. We never met the owners but we did have just a few hiccups, nothing big, and he got back to us within minutes. They had binders with tons of recommendations to restaurants (we spent our anniversarry dinner at The Carpentar & The Walrus). We loved every minute of our stay in this studio and were sad to leave. We had a rental car during our trip which came in handy because we wanted to drive out to Canada (they had a reserved parking spot available). We would recommend this studio to anyone who wants to visit Seattle. Thank you for creating such a wonderful little space for travel bugs like ourselves!

Quiet, Cozy Cottage- Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5
The location and amenities of this quiet and cozy little cottage were perfect for both of us!! We enjoyed all the little touches in and around the cottage. The bed is comfortable and it is very clean and well kept! Lots of restaurants, coffee shops, grocery store and bus lines were all walking distance. We will definitely return if available for our next Seattle visit! Thank you for everything Eric and Pam! We appreciate your hospitality!

The Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful cottage was absolutely perfect in every way. Cozy, warm, stylish and conveniently located. It was exactly what we were hoping for. It had everything we needed and then some. My favorite was the heated towel rack!

Gorgeous cottage in a suburb area

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived at the cottage we were immediately impressed with the cleanliness, the thoughtful touches and comfortable additions throughout the cottage. Location was perfect and we happily walked to most locations (especially to the donut store down the street!) We really didn't need the car! Thankyou, Erik. Highly recommended!

Truly a Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Erik and Pam's perfect cottage for a week while we visited Seattle. This place is beautiful, and the best use of a small amount of space that I've ever experienced. Sunny, bright and beautifully decorated, we ended up spending more time staying in than exploring Seattle! Erik and Pam provided anything that a weary traveller could possibly need/had forgotten (tea, ear plugs, comb, etc). The location as well was perfect, a very easy walk to Capitol Hill. The terrace outside is a wonderful place for a charming dinner of foods that you've bought at the incredible and nearby farmer's market. Erik was wonderfully knowledgeable and gave us tons of suggestions (most of which we ended up taking!) around the area. Thanks, Erik and Pam! We look forward to when we can stay there again!
