A cozy cottage behind a lovely Victorian house. It has a 3/4 bath (shower). The cottage has a brick patio and a large trellis covered with roses and grape vines set in an English Garden. Also, see our equally nice "Victorian in the Heart of Ballard" rental:


A cozy cottage behind a lovely Victorian house with separate access and a 3/4 (meaning shower but no bathtub) bathroom. The cottage has a brick patio and a large trellis on the south side covered with roses, grape vines, and wisteria and is surrounded by an English Garden. The pictures posted should give you the right idea.

(Alternative accommodation: We also have a really lovely rental space in the main house. See: )

The cottage: there is a microwave, a small fridge, and an electric kettle for making coffee or tea. It offers considerable privacy if that is desired. The bed is queen-sized. Extra high-speed WiFi is also provided along with cable TV, including all of the premium channels. It is also possible to close some giant wood-paneled pocket doors if you want to divide the studio into a bedroom and sitting room, if case someone wants to sleep and someone else does not.

The cottage is used as a studio by Liz (who is the English gardener) when it is not being used as a guest house. So there is a lot of (really excellent) art, mostly studies in the human form, on the walls and shelves. (If you would like a cast of one of the statues, talk to Liz.)

The Ballard Neighborhood is a great place to visit:
*10 minute walk to downtown Ballard with fabulous bars and restaurants, great Sunday farmers market, nice three-screen cinema, and much more.
*5 minute walk to the Ballard Locks, where ships enter and exit Puget Sound from Seattle waterways.
*10 minute drive to downtown Seattle.
Buses also run regularly downtown from close by - either to downtown Seattle or to the University District and elsewhere.

Evenings are very quiet here and the air quality is unusually good for a city. We get a fresh sea breeze off of Puget Sound in the early evening. Guests find the cottage a calming and refreshing refuge from the bustle of the city.

Serveis i zones comuns

Separate access for guest to come and go to and from the cottage up the "stairway to heaven" at the end of the driveway. Entrance is on the garden patio under the grape trellis. There is plenty of free parking on the street.

Interacció amb els hostes

We are usually quite chatty with guests when they want to get acquainted. But it varies with the weather and our schedule and the degree of privacy our guests desire. But we always make contact early on and provide guidance to amenities in Ballard.

Altres aspectes destacables

Golden Gardens Park on Puget Sound is a mile away and offers beautiful sunsets over the Olympic Mountains. The Ballard Locks are only a 5 minute walk and offer salmon ladder viewing and boats and a botanical garden worth the trip.

The cottage only accomodates 2 people - there is one queen-sized futon that sleeps two, but is at least as comfortable as a regular box-spring bed.

Smoking is allowed on the patio. Since recreational marijuana is now legal in Washington State, we are totally cool with folks smoking it on our property.

Sorry, no animals.
Also the studio-parts cannot be made child-proof, so we are not able to host small children or toddlers than might injure themselves.

We do not offer breakfast as we have day jobs. But if visitors on the weekend are keen for breakfast (or some other meal or tea in the garden or whatever) on the premises, let us know and arrangments can be made. But there are plenty of great options nearby for breakfast.

Great space and a good location for exploring a different part of this great city. Ballard Sunday market was the best.

Private, clean, comfort room. Lots of art work inside the room. Like the Chinese characters displayed. Went straight into the room for checkin, no human interaction needed.

The cottage was cozy, bathroom was spotless, and the bed was really comfortable. We felt safe in the neighborhood at all hours and found great coffee shops, grocery, and restaurants in easy walking distance. Rachael was available when needed. This was our first experience with Airbnb and we were very pleased and we did not want to leave!! Thank you for making our visit wonderful!!

The cottage is very nice and has good amenities. It is in walking distance of many shops and restaurants in Ballard and only about a 15 minute drive to downtown Seattle. Communication with the hosts was responded in a quick manner. The only issue I had was with the wifi in the cottage. The password wouldn't work on either of my devices. I was however able to connect to the wifi in the house and use it while I was hanging out in the garden.

I really enjoyed stay at Brad & Liz's place. Location is very good to experience and enjoy Ballard and easy to go to downtown. And I really loved their LP player which is in my room that I stayed. I could feel some nostalgia. And I fall in love with Beethoven symphony no. 9 which was in room owing to them. (I write same message in Korean for Korean travelers) 위치도 좋고, 분위기도 좋았습니다. 발라드는 걸어서 즐길 수 있고, 우버를 이용하시면 시내도 편하게 가실 수 있습니다. 그리고 방에 LP플레이어가 있어서, 저는 매일 들었습니다. 비틀즈의 서전트 페퍼스 론니 하트 클럽 LP와 베토벤 교향곡 9번이 있었는데, 둘다 매우 좋았습니다. 침대도 호텔침구처럼 하얀 시트가 깔려 있어요. 묵기 좋습니다.

Charming bohemian cottage and backyard! Good location for walking to historic Ballard and the locks. Brad & Liz are very hospitable, and Liz has great sculptures and paintings on view.
