Not only have the innkeepers thought of "everything", but everything was impeccable! The location, grounds, view, walkability factor and transportation connection is wonderful. We chose the Guest House mainly because of its access to our daughter and her family. And though the reviews we read prior to booking were stellar, we were amazed at the home, amenities and the "quality" of everything.
From the heated flooring in the bath, which keeps the bathroom comfortable 24/7, to the condition and cleanliness of the home throughout it would be impossible to list everything that was wonderful as everything "is"!
I have stayed in other bnbs in the Seattle Metro area, and for some it maybe the location to one place or another, or the amenities, or to public transit....this bnb has it all.
It is on the 48 transit route, though there is ample quiet street parking, which means easy access to downtown, University District, and Light Rail if you are choosing public transportation. The walking distance as well as the beautiful streets to nearby dining and coffee establishments is easy and adds to experiencing the locale. The lake is just across Green Lake Drive and you can gaze from the nice sitting area while having coffee or freshly baked cookies and/or snacks.
The other reviews have well described the amenities, I can only add that it is five star.
p.s. the hosts Julie and Blayne are very nice, and respectful of your desire to engage in interesting conversation if you so choose. I couldn't ask for or anticipate a better stay in the area than at the Greenlake Guest House.
