Enjoy a big city retreat with all the charming comforts of home in this beautiful Seattle vacation rental with a gourmet kitchen, a large front porch, four bedrooms, a private, fenced-in backyard, and space for seven guests!
The home is in the heart of the city, but provides a peaceful neighborhood experience for you and close friends to enjoy the restaurants, nightclubs, shopping districts, and unique Seattle culture - all within walking distance!
The blue Queen Anne Craftsman is tucked away on the north side of Queen Anne Hill, just three minutes from bicycle trails along the ship canal and lake access at Lake Union. It's also just one mile from the Space Needle, Experience Music Project Museum, shopping downtown, and public artwork, as well as fine dining, and arts and entertainment in the vibrant Fremont district.
The three-level home is eclectic and inviting with picture windows, ornate wood trim, unique artwork, hardwood floors, and Persian rugs. The living room is beautifully decorated with a blue floral rug, antique accent furniture, and colorful knickknacks. A decorative brick fireplace is framed with built-in bookshelves and historic books about Seattle. Learn about the fish markets while curled up in a wooden rocking chair, or settle into the leather sofa and armchair.
The fully equipped kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, including a vintage double oven and stove, and a breakfast bar for hosting a wine and cheese night or an entire feast!
Just off the living room is a vintage wooden drop-leaf dining table and an ornate blue floral area rug and piano. A second seating area is adjacent to the dining table and offers a cozy red sofa, red leather ottomans, and the media center with a TV, DVD player, and stereo. WiFi and an iPod docking station will keep you plugged in and inspired for extended stays!
This Seattle getaway has four bedrooms and two full bathrooms (one with a claw-foot tub) for up to seven guests. Upstairs is an office with a small desk, large built-in book shelves, and a screen door to the balcony, with lovely views of Seattle.
Just down the hall is where you'll find the master bedroom, with ornate wooden bedroom furniture, a red floral area rug, and a queen bed. A second bedroom offers an antique white-scroll bed frame and twin bed, cheery floral curtains, and a unique chandelier. A third bedroom has twin bunk beds, a vintage armoire, and a vibrant zebra area rug. There's also another bedroom with a queen bed.
The large covered front porch is surrounded by flowering trees and shrubs. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee on one of two barrel-shaped patio chairs and an ottoman available in the summer months, or watch the neighborhood happenings while perched on the porch steps.
Make the mile trip downtown to fish markets and unique shopping at Pike Place Market or get a cup of joe at the first Starbucks store. Watch an indie band at the iconic Paramount Theater, tour the city by boat on Ride The Ducks Seattle, or drive 12 minutes to a Mariner's baseball game at Safeco Field.
No matter how you spend your urban Seattle adventure, eating fine seafood, shopping, or taking in the tourist sites, this Queen Anne Seattle vacation rental is a quiet neighborhood oasis amongst the bustling city!
