Located in Loyal Heights which is just south of Blue Ridge. About 5 minutes drive from Greenwood and Phinney Ridge neighborhoods. Live a part of Seattle's history and enjoy the ocean (Puget Sound) when you stay at the former property of 'Harry S. Treat'.

We respect your privacy, and invite you to your own private suite and outdoor area located in our home. Please find information on Harry S. Treat and the ocean park just a 2 minute drive, or 15 minute walk below: The park was named by and developed by Harry W. Treat in 1907 as an 'attraction' at the end of the new electric car lines being built by realtors to induce townfolk to take a 'Sunday outing' out of town and through the woods to a picnic or swim at a beach. (Along the way they were made aware of the real estate available!) The Carbine ended at Loyal Way (& 85th) with a steep twisting dusty path down into the park - or those owning a 'tin lizzie' could drive down a dusty county road (approximately the present drive entering the upper park from the north) and down to a small parking area on the east side of the railroad tracks, then by foot across the tracks to the beach. At that time the northern half of Meadow Point (named by the Coast Guard) was the site of a shipyard until 1913. To the south the beach curved in along the railroad seaway - all the way to Salmon Bay. The State owns the tidelands south of the park, with boat works and yards by the Bay.More

As with most places you don't know what it's like until you get there. One of the first things we noticed and appreciated was the secure off-street parking which isn't always available with vacation rentals. The owner couldn't have been more helpful, he answered all...More
