Seattle Urban Tree House

Adults-only Seattle cottage in Lake City, near Lake Washington
**Due to the Corona Virus, for the months of April and May we are offering deep discounts for extended stays. The Urban Tree House is the perfect place for those who want/need to visit Seattle, or desire a place to "escape" as it's a stand alone building that provides perfect social distancing and is fully disinfected after each parties use.**

Hidden in the heart of Seattle, the Urban Tree House provides the convenience of the city and the escape to the forest of the Pacific Northwest. Ten minutes from downtown, yet nestled among towering maples and cedars. Enjoy the pairing of inner city with the tranquility of urban forest.

This urban Tree House is private and secluded, yet only 10 miles from downtown Seattle and minutes away from Lake Washington. Custom-designed to take advantage of its unique environment, the house sits in a ravine slightly below road level, surrounded on all sides by western red cedars and big leaf maples, providing ease of access with the privacy of a natural, leaf-shaded canopy. In this woodsy location, the Tree House’s contemporary design inside and outside emphasizes its location in a setting that is both rural and urban, the perfect blend for experiencing Seattle.

Simplicity is an art, and one that is needed when traveling. The Tree House does a good job of keeping the space clean, uncrowded and functional, yet architectural features such as high ceilings, large windows and exposed overhead beams supply a calming sense of space as well. Coupled with all the amenities needed for comfortable stay of a week or longer, this Seattle Tree House is the perfect home port for your return at night, or a quiet place to chill during the day.

Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include showers.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

5/5 Excellent

Stayed here for honeymoon. Perfect in every way! A dream come true

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful location!
Cute bi-level cabin that makes great use of space in a lovely wooded area. I felt as if I were in the woods even though town was only a block away. Loved the washer, dryer, and kitchen amenities as well as the decor. The hot tub was romantic also and maintained well. The bed was a bit too firm for my husband and me, but we both have bad backs. Other than that, we were completely satisfied with our experience and recommend this property and the host.

5/5 Excellent

Love this space!
Perfect for 1-2 travelers. The urban treehouse feels like a retreat after being on the go all day. I could have added a day just to stay here with a book and go nowhere but for a walk through the neighborhood. Lots of fun artsy touches. Feels tucked away for being so accessible to main roads and the highway. Kurt was very welcoming and clearly had given thought to comforts travelers seek. Would love to stay here again!

5/5 Excellent

This property was perfect in every way. We were in town to visit our son who lives within a mile of this property. The property is also very convenient to downtown attractions, restaurants and shopping. The house is exactly as represented in the listing and perfectly appointed for privacy, quiet, comfort and relaxation when we were not out and about. We cooked a few meals in, enjoyed the hot tub and hosting our son and his girlfriend for visits. Thank you for your hospitality, Douglass family. We’ll be back!

5/5 Excellent

Seattle for Two
Perfect place for two. Decor and amenities exceptional. Hot tub, kitchenette, washer and dryer and patio seating for dinning make this spot a great respite after a day of touring Seattle and the surrounding area. Easy drive to and from tourist attractions but nestled far enough away from the city center for relaxation. Quick communication between the owner with questions.
