Overview

A stunning mix of vintage charm and artistic sensibility come together in the Emerald City Gem, a darling little house in North Seattle. Adorned in cheerful colors with sunny south-facing windows overlooking our organic garden, this spacious little house has everything you need to feel at home. The Emerald City Gem is on transit lines, close to the freeway, and has free parking. A rare find in Seattle, this Emerald City Gem has air conditioning for those warm summer days!

The Emerald City Gem was the home of Moxie & Oliver Leatherworking for seven years. When my business outgrew the space, we painted, gave it a good cleaning, and furnished it to be the cutest little vacation spot you've ever seen. We left some little reminders that this space was an art studio for years, such as the two-tone turquoise drawers that were the home to leatherworking supplies of all sorts (and the labels are still on them, so you can see just what was housed there).

The Emerald City Gem is incredibly spacious - just shy of 700sf - with south-facing windows that overlook our organic garden and a hive of honeybees that are hard at work pollinating all our sweet plants. Starting the day with a cup of coffee at the dining table, watching the bees go in and out of the hive, is a wonderful way to start any day on your visit to Seattle.

One of the best-kept secrets in Seattle is how many gorgeous sunny days we get, especially in the summer. When you're venturing around the city, you'll find that the North Seattle location of the Emerald City Gem is ideally situated so that you have the quiet peacefulness (and authentic experience) of a residential neighborhood, and the convenience of close proximity to freeways and mass transit for easy-access to exploring the city. Carkeek Park is just down the hill and has miles of hiking trails, fields, beaches and a playground.

For those stereotypical Seattle days, the Emerald City Gem has two cozy couches to lounge on, TV with Netflix and Amazon loaded, a collection of DVDs, games, books and craft books to peruse while enjoying the spaciousness and beauty inside this charming little house.

When it is time to eat, the bright and cheerful kitchen is big enough to cook a Thanksgiving turkey, or if you're feeling a little more relaxed on vacation, you can kick back and order delivery from one of hundreds of restaurants on Postmates, Caviar, or Grub Hub. Some of our favorite restaurants are also just a few blocks away and there is a grocery store within walking distance.

At the end of the day, relax and unwind in a big vintage bathtub, or just close the blackout curtains for a night of quiet peaceful sleep. Then rest, and repeat!

The Emerald City Gem is set up specifically for guests, so you will be able to experience the charm of this artist's space and make yourself at home. We look forward to hosting you at the Emerald City Gem!

PS: Is this a WORK trip?! The Emerald City Gem has desk with printer and plenty of work space, so you can be comfortable and have plenty of space to get things done!
