A small cottage for a single traveler or a cozy couple.

You'll be nestled into a little spot of greenery amidst an urban backdrop.

Beacon Hill gives you easy access to the city by bus and a light rail station within walking distance.

You'll be immersed in one of the most diverse neighborhoods offering a wide variety of restaurants and cafes.

Feel free to ask me questions! I can help you decide how to enjoy our area by foot, bus, train or car.

The space

Ideal for a single visitor or cozy couple.

Often described as feeling 'European'.

The Cottage is a bedroom with your own bathroom and shower.

A deck overlooking a peaceful garden.

Private off-street parking (our driveway) is available.

A gravel driveway leads you to a hidden urban oasis in the middle of a pleasant city block set back from the street.

The garden separates you from our home, giving you a view of greenery to enjoy from the deck.

We do not offer a kitchen as the Cottage is intended for short visits.

We do offer a hot water kettle, a small refrigerator (loaded with complimentary beverages) and Via instant coffee.

Wi-Fi and Netflix

No smoking

No pets or children.

The #36 bus is across the street and will take you downtown in 20 minutes.

We are gay, race and age friendly and expect that you are too!

Guest access

The cottage is separate from our house so you'll have access to the cottage once you enter our property.

Interaction with guests

You'll get a personal greeting as I live here. I believe that is why most people take this route so they can have a human experience. A bit of communication and warm hospitality goes a long way.

It's easy to draw from my own travels so I try to show the same warmth I've experienced and apply it as a host.

The Cottage has a steady rotation of guests coming for business, visiting family, special occasions or simply getting away for some rest and relaxation.

Each traveling situation has a set of its own circumstances and you'll be able to simply fall into your groove and unfold your story.

Other things to note

Tall visitors, if you're over 6 feet, the shower may be a little short for you, my apologies. (a dear friend of 6'5” during his visit chuckled at this and still loves me despite)!


On foot and coming from the SeaTac Airport; take the Light Rail and get off at the Beacon Hill stop. From there, the Cottage is a short bus ride heading South on the #36.

Renting a car; 20-minute drive from SeaTac Airport.

Arriving on Amtrak; walk up to Jackson Street and take the #36 going South. It will drop you off within steps of the Cottage.

I believe there is an unspoken language among respectful travelers, that you treat someone's home as if it were your own.

We are gay, race and age friendly and expect that you are too!

No smoking.

No pets or children.

Seasoned travelers will intuitively know what is expected of them so I don't feel the need to enforce common courtesy. I trust my guests will come here with all those bases covered.

Mary's place truly is a gem. It is in a wonderful neighborhood, close to public transit, and walkable to many great places. Mary truly made this a home away from home. We can't wait to stay here again in the future. Highly recommend this place to anyone!

I had a wonderful time staying at the adorable studio in the garden! Super close to public transportation and I discovered a cute little are called Columbia city. I would definitely stay here again

Mary was an absolutely lovely host. Very welcoming and friendly. The cottage is close to downtown (~10 minute drive or a $13 Uber) and cute restaurants in Beacon Hill. The bed was comfortable and provided a good night's rest. The fridge also had refreshments which was nice after a long drive in. I would definitely return!

Mary's cottage is a cute little place, nestled back from the street with a lovely garden. Mary is great to communicate with, and very friendly and interesting to talk to. She has made the place nice and comfortable and was very kind, even letting us a borrow a vase for flowers.

We had coffee in her kitchen the first morning and it just got better everyday. The yard was nothing short of a botanical garden and very private. The cottage has everything you need and is spotless! This was our first Airbnb experience and it is the only way to go. Mary and Bonnie are the best and we hope to return and visit again in the near future.

Mary's cottage was the perfect spot for my friend and I for our stay while in town for Bumbershoot. The space was exactly as described and she even provided us with drinks and toiletries. The very close proximity to the bus line was a huge plus since that was our main form of transportation for the weekend. After a long day, the cottage was a nice spot to come back to and relax.

I love gardening and the cottage is surrounded by my efforts of creating a nest of greenery amidst the hustle and bustle of the city, giving you a place to nestle in for a pleasant urban experience.
