Perfect for our style of stay in seattle

We got around on bikes and buses the whole time and this place was perfectly located for access to stops and the Burke gillman trail. It was also close to the university village for convenient access to grocers, etc. We had two adult couples, our 4yr old, 6mo old, plus our friends who live in Seattle visiting with their twin 1yr olds for evening dinners - plenty of space and privacy when needed for all of us. The only caution I would advise is it's a very quiet neighborhood: lights out and whisper voices on the patio and in the hot tub after 10pm! Thanks again to Scott for a great stay.

Great Get Away

We stayed here with family members and had a great time. It was really comfortable and we felt like we were at home. It was next to a huge forest so even though we were still in Seattle we felt like we were on a vacation. Inge was really nice and very responsive to all of our questions. Thank you so much!

Seattle wedding event

This beautiful property was very much as described on the internet. It was the perfect venue for several of us attending our daughter's wedding. We would not hesitate to recommend to our friends. Parking mildly inconvenient, but setting was delightful.

Clean and roomy luxury

My family and friends recently completed our stay at the quiet and charming Ravenna house and could not have been happier. The accommodations were exactly as advertised and the property is located next to some great walking paths and a playground that our kids loved. The spaciousness of the home made it easy to get all of the extended family in for a visit although parking was difficult given the number of vehicles we had (there is really only room for 2 cars). Working with the owner was easy and she answered all our inquiries promptly. Parking is a little tricky on the hill but the property was centrally located for all of our day-trips. The only difficulty we had was in accessing the wifi--one of us was able to log on but the other three could not. We talked with the owner and she assured us she would get that squared away for future visitors. We will definitely be back and will recommend this property to all of our friends staying in Seattle.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We have loved living here! Perfectly cleaned, and a truly special place to be.
