The house is at the end of a long driveway in a gorgeous private wooded setting on the Westside. In the winter you'll have a peek-a-boo view of Budd Bay Inlet. It's close to downtown, the Capitol, the food co-op, Evergreen State College, public transport, shopping, restaurants, and groceries. Everything you need is within a mile or less, yet the house is secluded, quiet and surrounded by woods. You'll feel like you're way out in the country, but with everything you need nearby.
The room is up it’s own set of stairs and is totally private, with an attached private bath and a wooded view from the windows. It's furnished with dresser, large closet, extra blankets and towels as well as a mini fridge, electric tea kettle, a usb charging station, an assortment of teas and granola bars, mugs, silverware, etc. You'll have cable TV with HBO and Showtime, wifi, and use of washer/dryer. The room is perfect for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
I work at home and have two cats, so no pets please, and no cigarette smokers.
This is a 420 friendly home, but no smoke indoors, please.
You are welcome to use the private yard and deck, relax in the hammock or the trellis swing, and if you meditate feel free to use the meditation cabin.
I am a working artist and my studio is in my home. You are welcome to pop in to the studio any time if you need help with anything or have questions. (or just to look around at what I do here).
I am flexible as to check out times, unless I have another guest coming, in which case I'll ask that you check out by 1 pm.
Expect coffee or tea, and a home baked muffins or scones to be waiting for you in the morning. You can take them to your room or make yourself at home by the fire, on the deck or at the dining room table.
Kitchen use is not included. If you need to store something that doesn't fit in the mini fridge in the room, that's fine. We can work that out. But be aware if you need to cook, this isn't the place for you.
This is a shoes off house.
Please keep noise to a minimum after 11pm.
If you are arriving later than 9pm, let me know in advance.
If you have special requirements, i.e, you are allergic to certain detergents, cleaners, fabrics, or other similar issues, please discuss them with me before reserving your room, so we can make sure it won't be a problem when you get here.
There are security cameras in the house. None of them are in your private space. They are in my personal/private space, which is not included in the rental. They are not being monitored, they are set to start taping ONLY in case of a break in, if my alarm goes off. But for the sake of full disclosure, the locations are as shown in the picture - in the living room, family room, kitchen, and my office.
- No shoes preferred as the house is surrounded by woods, and I have to vacuum up pine needles twice a day.
- 420 friendly, but no smoking inside the house.
- No additional (unregistered) guests.
- No visitors or overnight guests without prior arrangement.
