About Suzanna Plumb
Retired educator and librarian, my passions are textile crafts, jewelry making, antique refinishing, some gardening and home décor. Fluent French speaker and working to attain fluency in Italian, I'm a Europhile with my vine-covered main deck! I prize the cool summers (mostly) in Seattle and access to the ocean and the waters of Puget Sound, and two great NPR stations. I have two Siamese cats .
Suzanna Plumb purchased this Studio in 1974
Why Suzanna Plumb chose Mount Baker
Developed the studio apartment in 1989. A great neighborhood should be shared with those who cannot purchase in this prime area! Remodeled in December 2010.
What makes this Studio unique
Quick access to beautiful areas on foot. The sense of history and groundedness in staying in the house that was built to promote the area in 1905, and the authenticity of its architecture. The presence of a variety of plants on the decks,hot tub house and in the yard. A quiet neighborhood close to downtown, yet on a huge lake resembling the lakes of Italy.

This was very pleasant. Great neighborhood, quiet and all the comforts of home. I recommend this.
Lovely stay in November/December 2019
Perfect MIL suite in a beautiful, historic Seattle neighborhood. The hot tub access is private and our host was most accommodating, yet respectful of our privacy. Highly recommend!
Sleepless in Seattle
Overall, this is a nice place to stay, but it could have been much better. Cleanliness is a big issue here. Needs a deep cleaning.
Pros: Location is awesome. The #14 bus stop is right in front of the house. We used public transportation for the whole trip. City bus and Lyft.
Cons: Matted, dirty bathroom rugs, creaky old bed, down pillows which were very old and smelly, all bedding, duvet and shams needed to be laundered. It was like sleeping in a pile of dirty clothes. Furniture needs to be cleaned and floors vacuumed. TV is located above and behind the 2 sitting chairs. There were no dishcloths in the kitchen. Outside security light kept going on/off all night long. Owner walked in on us without knocking. Owner had to reset bath light/fan circuit breaker twice for us. Entry door glass very dirty and had streaks. Multi-level floors come together in one spot. 3 levels in a small area is a huge trip hazard especially at night. Keypad instructions for locking door were wrong. Owner encouraged using hot tub without swimwear. Hot tub room not private-did not have window coverings facing the house.
Seattle Family Visit
We had a great time in Seattle! The Plumb Suite we stayed in was sufficient for our stay. Perfect size for two people, close to the city, great neighborhood! Made two attempts at contacting the owner for an early arrival, left messages but no return call by the owner, so we drove around until it was time to check in, about two hours. There was some confusion on how to use the bathroom fan (did not get it to work) The guest info book had instructions, but there were too many cross outs from previous edits to understand some of it. Bed wasn't too comfortable, but that was most likely our personal preference.
Rainer Valley property #346573
Everything as advertised, unit is in an older neighborhood with outstanding rapid transit nearby, as a matter of fact bus #14 which you board about 150 yards from the rental takes you right across the street from the Mt Baker Link station. (or you can walk its all down hill!) Only thing to keep in mind is it has a tripping hazard, a small step from the kitchen to the sleeping area, in the dark this could cause a fall.
Historic Mt Baker Park neighbourhood
Stayed 2 nights in Aug 2019. Short walk to very good Mioposto restaurant. Bus stop nearby was a good pickup spot for Uber/taxi. Clean and quiet. Would stay there again.
Mt. Baker is one of the oldest developed residential neighborhoods in Seattle, cleared in the 1900's. My house was the model for development which took place mostly in the 1920's. Elegant homes and landscaping surround the rental, with scenic walks along the lake with mountain views and lake swimming areas. Sailing center nearby where boats can be rented. Located south of downtown with easy access to downtown and airport via Light Rail. Situated near Columbia City, with upscale bars and small restaurants, as well as inexpensive ethnic restaurants in walking distance.
