About the neighborhood
The Brass Bed Guestroom is a studio apartment in the basement of our turn-of-the-century “salt box” style home in the residential part of Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood. All forms of recreational and sporting activities are available as are dozens of restaurants, and great shopping of all forms. The range of entertainment possibilities seems endless – parks, museums, live music and theater, sightseeing, water activities, cultural events and even getaways to the nearby islands of Puget Sound, a ferry ride and overnight stay in Victoria BC or a quick hour’s drive to mountain passes for skiing or rock climbing. We are very convenient to all of Seattle’s specialty medical centers: the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, the Seattle Care Alliance, the University of Washington Medical Cente... more
