Interaction with guests
We live next door on an acre. The cottage is on an acre as well so both houses are very private and far enough away for comfort. We are readily available by phone/text for any questions or issues. We are happy to interact as much as you like. We have guests that we never meet in person as they are busy with their agenda and we have guests who like to share a glass of wine/beer/soda and chat. We love meeting our guests if they are interested!

Sea-tac airport is our closest airport. it is south of the city of Seattle, we are at the north end of Seattle.. Lake Forest Park. Good to rent a car but we do have public transit a 6 block walk away. Sound transit 522 from downtown Seattle is about a 30 minute ride..
