Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom Cottage Near West Seattle Junction, Sleeps 2

This 101-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.

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 antique full-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. The main house is two separate rental units. All guests share the yard. Easy on-street parking on 42nd Ave SW (very quiet and easy to find a spot).

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.

By car, downtown Seattle is just 10 minutes. Or, another great hassle-free option is to hop on a Rapid Ride metro bus and ride just 15-20 minutes. The Rapid Ride stop is one block from the cottage.

About Laura and Joe Ross

Having both owned houses before we married in February of 2009, we decided to try the vacation rental business rather than sell either. Our first guests were Laura's family, in town for the wedding. Since then, with Joe's work as an entertainer and our joint project of raising our three kids, we are plenty busy! However, we take pride in putting our visitors first and have really enjoyed meeting our guests and sharing the city we love with them.

Laura and Joe Ross purchased this cottage in 1990

Fun with Family

  • 5 of 5

We were comfortable, cozy, and contented at the Northern lights cottage. It's vintage charm came through, the location, and the price will keep us coming back.

Amazing location, super accommodating owners.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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!
