About the property

This lovely, fun cottage for 1 or 2 guests is nestled on a quiet street in convenient, desirable Upper Fremont. Artfully compact, it has real-home features like gas kitchen, tub/shower bathroom, & sleeping loft to enhance your Seattle visit!

The Space:

This is an open-floor-plan cottage with areas for living room, full kitchen, full bathroom and sleeping loft with a double bed. The cottage is detached and located behind the owner's 1901 single family home.

If you are with a larger group, this cottage can work in tandem with a wonderful 3 bedroom house right next door that accommodates up to six guests. (on this site at https://www.)

The footprint of the cottage is about 12 x 20 feet, plus the sleeping loft above a portion of it adds another 8 x 10 feet. The main room has an airy, high pitched ceiling and skylight, and the adjoining kitchen and bathroom lie below the sleeping loft.

The loft is accessed by a well-attached, sturdy ladder. Once in the loft, although you cannot stand up, the pitched ceiling allows a nice space for sitting and reading; there are lights and an outlet up there. The bed is a full size mattress with a wool and cotton topper for extra comfort. The bedding sheets and blankets are almost all of 100% cotton. There are wood shelves to place things on each side of the bed.

The living room has a comfy loveseat, an armoire and drawers for your clothes among other furnishings. There is a gas heater that works quite effectively, and a large ceiling fan. It has original exposed wood ceiling, cross beams and front wall peak. The skylight gives it a lot of light, even though there are trees around the cottage. If there is a full moon, you can watch it go by!

In the kitchen is a gas range & oven, half-refrigerator/freezer, (frost free), and microwave. It is completely equipped with dishes, pans, utensils, water filter and linens. There is a French press coffee pot and a tea pot and... even a fondue pot! There is enough storage and counter space to function as a proper kitchen in spite of being in a cozy cottage. (We forwent a dishwasher in order to accomplish this.) The kitchen has ceramic tile flooring and has windows on two sides. From your kitchen table you can gaze out over the garden's camellia, pear tree, and flower beds with peonies.

The bathroom has a pocket door, a tub/shower, sink, toilet, and storage for the cottage's linens and some of your cosmetics. It too has ceramic tile flooring, and a window opening into trees behind the cottage for fresh air. All linens are provided for guests.

Wifi is available from the main house and login information will be in the cottage.

Guest Access:

You access the cottage by walking towards the back of the property along the south side of the main house. You will see the cottage right away. Guests can make use of the yard of the main house if they wish, and they also have a semi-enclosed courtyard directly in front of the cottage with a place to sit down.

Interaction with Guests:

While open and ready to offer assistance or to converse, I'm respectful of guests' privacy, and like to let them be the ones to establish the amount of interaction they wish to have.

The Neighborhood:

Upper Fremont is one of the most rewardingly walkable neighborhoods in town. We also have a very safe track record.

Wow. Just wow. Beautiful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We felt so at home for the week and very comfortable/safe in our surroundings. The cottage is beautifully put together and SO clean. It's in a super trendy area filled with lots of little restaraunts and bars. This cottage is a little hidden treasure that we would stay at again in a heart beat. 10/10 would recommend. (It's much more spacious than expected)

Lots to Like in a Little Space!

  • 5 of 5

I took my wife to Seattle on a surprise trip. I knew we'd be doing very touristy things, so I wanted to stay in a real neighborhood to sort of counterbalance things. Ended up booking Rose Michelle's Cozy Cottage in Fremont. It was a perfect place for us.

It really is tiny, but it's a comfortable and fun tiny. Clean and airy. Great for one or two people looking for something convenient to the big city, but close to neighborhood shops. Despite its diminutive nature, this place has everything you need...and nothing you don't. One thing to note is that the ladder to the sleeping loft is, of necessity, at a steep angle, and the loft itself is small. If you're worried about ladders or have bad knees, or if you're uncomfortable sleeping with a V-shaped ceiling rather close to you, you might want to pass on this place as there isn't really any other realistic place to sleep. We enjoyed the novelty of it.

Rose Michelle was very genuine and helpful. She was extremely responsive, offered great suggestions, and even helped us print something in a pinch. I have no hesitation in recommending the Cozy Cottage!

Truly cozy!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very cute, well-equipped and in a nice location. Close enough to downtown Seattle for easy access but far enough away for a quiet, smaller community feel. The host was very helpful and accommodating. We loved our stay!

Cozy cottage in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at the cottage! Rose Michelle is very hospitable. It was easy to walk to lots of great restaurants very close by! One night was pretty warm up in the loft after a sunny day in May, even with the fans going, but overall a great stay!

Very clean, very nice, very well placed, totally recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Lived in Seattle 10 years, left and returned for a five days vacation. Chose this place and totally loved it. The house is in a good area, quiet, peaceful, and safe.

It is close to shopping areas and major landmarks in all directions. Local people like to say that Fremont is the center of the Universe. This house is about eight or ten blocks away from the center of Fremont. Five minutes of driving or you may walk to some great restaurants, pubs, some great scenic views, and about 30-45 minutes to the airport.

You may go to Ballard and admire a great sunset, watch the boats crossing the Ballard Locks or walk on the beach at Golden gardens. Or go to Downtown and enjoy all the famous places.

The house comes equipped with everything to feel like at home. If you never climbed a ladder to go to bed, don't be afraid, is fun and it's actually warm and cozy. The place has everything a hotel room has, minus the stress.

It is five minutes away from a great grocery co-op store named PCC, which is above the level of Whole foods in quality and choices, if you don't want to go to a restaurant. There are three Whole foods stores about 15 minutes away. There are some great breweries and coffee shops around and in Downtown Fremont. You are within 15 minutes from University, Seattle Downtown or Queen Anne, and it's close enough to have an easy commute if you want to go on East side / Bellevue or around. Wallingford, Green Lake and the Zoo are within 5-10 minutes as well.

The house has a nice garden and if you are lucky to visit in May, smells absolutely fantastic. The owner is very friendly and helped us feel like at home. Be aware that the street parking is pretty common pretty much everywhere in Seattle.

I would totally recommend this place and hope you'll have a good time there!
