About this cottage

** MUST LOVE DOGS **


Because of its location in our backyard, this listing is "hosted" by our sweet pup, Nala. Nala is a husky mix that came to our family from the Pierce County Humane Society in February 2021. She just turned a year old this summer, and is still learning how to be on her best behavior. As you'll see if you visit, digging holes in the backyard is one of her favorite pastimes!



Our 110-year old backyard cottage has been lovingly updated in recent years.



Although you may feel like you’re worlds away from it all when tucked inside, you will actually be just 2-1/2 blocks from the heart of of West Seattle.



Impeccably Clean: Offering a sparkling-clean space has always been a top priority for us. At this time, we are following an enhanced cleaning protocol,

which was developed in partnership with experts in health and

hospitality.



Pre-war charm meets modern convenience:



Soak in the original claw-foot tub or enjoy a steaming shower with the new on-demand hot water system.



Snuggle up with your loved one in the comfortable queen-sized bed.



Enjoy your morning coffee in the sun-drenched dining nook, or walk just a few blocks to C&P coffee - a local favorite.



Whip up gourmet meals in the large kitchen with new gas range.



Stay connected with high speed WiFi and lounge in front of the satellite TV in your down time.



The Northern Lights Cottage is the backyard cottage on this property. Easy on-street parking on 42nd Ave SW (very quiet and almost always possible to find a spot right in front of the house, one parking permit provided).



Our neighborhood, West Seattle is also home to Seattle’s finest waterfront areas: Alki Beach and Lincoln Park. Alki provides summer fun and excellent views of downtown; Lincoln Park is great for a hike in the woods or a dip in the saltwater swimming pool. We recommend riding the Elliot Bay Water Taxi from Seacrest Pier to downtown Seattle.

    Great stay

    We enjoyed our stay! The cottage was comfortable and clean. Many amenities and supplies were available, which was a nice touch. The owner was very responsive to any questions we had. In a very nice and quiet neighborhood. The only minor drawback was parking. A spot was always available on the block, but not always right in front of the property.

    Storybook cottage

    This was my first air bnb. It will probably be the one I remember the most. Very cozy, private, and altogether relaxing. It was nice to be able to wind down and hear my thoughts in peace. Great hosts!

    Amazing location, super accommodating owners.

    Laura and Joe were so wonderful. We rented their cottage for my father and his dog during our wedding month. Multiple things came up within our family and they bent over backwards to help us. I really can't sing enough praise for those two. The cottage was clean and well stocked with new towels and cute decor. There is a light musty smell but it's an old cottage and it's Seattle. We're used to it-plus-it adds to the charm! The dog was comfy with the little yard and it was easily accessible to grocery stores and restaurants (3 blocks max!). Totally worth it. We would totally use this space again for overflow family if needed.

    Mini home away from home

    Lovely. Perfect location, hosts and neighborhood. I stayed here form a 2 month clinical rotation and I felt I was coming 'home' every evening. I will miss this sweet cottage and West Seattle. The restaurants, nightlife and coffee shops were all within walking distance. Easy access to the major roadways, and just a feeling of safety and comfort. Thank you for being such great hosts and accommodating my needs. One small thing, add a space heater to the bedroom, as it can get a bit chilly if you close the door off from the living room. Thanks for a great stay.

    loved it.

    I love anything old so this little cottage was perfect for me. It is located in a great neighborhood and has a small yard for my small dog. Comfortable bed. Fun living area and sweet bathroom. The kitchen had everything including fun old cabinets and a cozy eating area. I will stay here again. I am sure of it.

    Convenient West Seattle Location

    Nice little rustic cabin conveniently located in West Seattle. The kitchen is well stocked, which meant I was able to cook most meals during my one month stay. The owner, Laura, was always available, helpful, cheerful and accommodating. Thanks!
