We will have a rental car so, is there adequate parking? We will be there three nights May 8,9,10.
We are located on a corner so parking is free and generally plentiful right in front of the property or directly across the street. Your stay is midweek in May so I would not expect any shortage of parking. Street parking may be a little tighter on sunny summer days and weekends in the afternoon, but always opens back up by dinnertime. Feel free to reach out to us directly by email or phone with any additional questions, Thanks, Julie (owner)

Will you be dining with other guests? Are there several dining areas so guests can eat separately? Thank you!
Hi Katrina, Most guests dine alone at tables for two although we do have one table that can accommodate 4. There are 3 tables in the dining room that are separate but fairly close to each other and one table just a bit further away in the living room. This allows guests to talk with other guests as much or as little as they want to. Best, Julie and Blayne, owners

How far a walk is it to downtown Seattle and Pike Market
Looks like it would take over 2 hours to walk to the Market. If you are traveling during Seattle's beautiful summer weather that may not be horrible but if you are traveling when it's raining/drizzling it may not be enjoyable!

"We like the Parkview the best because it has a walk-in shower."
"We stayed down"
"Ravenna room is quiet and beautiful, it looks out on to the garden, and is near the nice front (public) rooms and amenities."
"The rooms overlooking the lake have a great view but are a bit noiser than the ones facing the garden."
"Have 5 rooms - at least two are lakeview"
