About this listing
The furniture has been rearranged since this photo was take and there is a new wood burning stove to replace the little green one.
Sweet restored stockade style log cabin right on Haller Lake. You would never know you were within the Seattle city limits! Haller Lake is a quiet, natural spring fed 15 acre lake surrounded by private homes.
Custom woodwork inside with artful touches. Sleeps 2 upstairs in full sized bed. Main floor has comfy sofa, kitchenette with microwave, single induction burner cooktop, coffee maker, toaster and small refrigerator, teapot, dishes and glasses; 3/4 bath with new stone tile shower; we have Wi-Fi!
This cabin is heated mainly with the wood fireplace. The photos show the old wood stove. You can now watch the flames and there is a fan to spread the heat around a little better. There is also a deLonghi oil heater to add a little more heat when needed. There is no TV but there is WiFi. Bring slippers, the stone floor gets chilly.
Fish from the dock or take a ride in the paddleboat. We just got a canoe! (The boats are out of the water in the winter).
No pets please! We are now living in the main house. We have an Australian Shepherd and a flock of chickens (the dog and chickens do not come into the cabin, just in case you were wondering)
Parking is shared with the main house. It's close to Northgate Shopping Mall with shops, restaurants and Thornton Place Cinema. A few blocks to Northwest Hospital and the new proton center (look up ProCure Center)
The lake is about 15-20 minutes from downtown Seattle via I-5 or highway 99 (can be a bit more in heavy traffic). Bus route #346 has a stop at the end of the driveway.
If you are interested in having a party or many friends over, please clear it with us before making your reservation. We have limited parking and there is no parking down our communal access road.
Check out by noon, Check in no earlier than 2pm, sometimes later if I can't get the cabin ready because of work. To be agreed upon according to schedule. If you want an early morning check-in, please book the night before.
no smoking, no candles (we have battery powered candles), strip bed of sheets and pillow cases, fold the blankets and put all dirty linen and towels in shower or by door upon checkout. Wash your dishes, take trash and recycle up to garbage cans by the garage. Please leave the cabin as clean as when you arrived.
If you use the barbecue, please clean it out. (ashes cannot go in the trash though...)
The location is perfect. Quiet neighborhood with easy access to downtown Seattle. Roberta and Dan are welcoming, generous, and friendly without being intrusive. It's hard to imagine a more perfect setting. Sitting in a big, comfy stuffed chair in the cozy upstairs bedroom, looking out onto the lake, trees, birds. I swam everyday off the private dock. Water temperature was perfect and since there are no motorized boats allowed, swimming to your heart's content is safe and relaxing. I travel to Seattle often, and as long as the cabin is available, it's where I will be staying from now on.
Roberta and Dan were great hosts - they gave us a tour of the cabin and made themselves available for whatever we needed. The cabin is conveniently located near the Seattle center, many restaurants, and grocery stores. We loved having the lake in our backyard and having the canoe and paddle boat to use whenever we wanted! We were lucky enough to get some sunny days there and spotted some turtles across the lake, an osprey, and a kingfisher!
Roberta & Dan's cabin was a wonderful treat to come home to each day. Just a short drive into the city, it was a great location for exploring all of Seattle while also enjoying the beautiful lake it backs onto. The dock was a great place to have morning teas, go for a canoe ride, and soak in some sun. The log fireplace created a wonderful ambiance in this one of a kind cabin.
Roberta & Dan were more than gracious hosts, making sure we had everything we needed and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable.
Thanks again! :)
Thank you, thank you Roberta for hosting us at our little home away from home. The cabin and yard feel as though they could be on a lake far outside the city and that is just our lifestyle! The drive into downtown which we did frequently was insignificant. The cabin is interesting, attractive, and comfortable. We loved the eggs Roberta shared with us. We stayed at the cabin for 12 days so we brought a small tv and power antenna and enjoyed many a western movie!! Funny, that will be remembered as a highlight!! Every morning we would watch a western and drink tea and totally unwind on vacation.
The cabin was adorable. Roberta was very pleasant. The fireplace kept us warm. The view was amazing. We would stay here again and again. Excellent first time experience. You can not go wrong with this place. Thank you Roberta!
Roberta was wonderful and very welcoming. My husband had a great in-city getaway, looking at the lake, listening to the ducks and drawing in the cozy cabin. Will definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it!
Roberta & Dan were awesome. They greeted us when we arrived and gave us the full run down on everything we needed to know. This cabin was super cozy and has and outstanding view. My wife and I were so relaxed staying here we did not want to leave. :)
