Originally from Scotland, we became Ballardites 12 years ago and can't think of a better place in Seattle to live. Having friends and family visit from afar, our backyard cottage was created to provide a comfortable stay where they could come and go as they please and have all the amenities they have at home. Now we want to share our cottage with others, so they too can have the space and comfort while staying in Ballard.
