New England charm meets So Cal cool- with a private lavender-surrounded terrace. Our cottage is 3 blocks' walk to the enticing cafes, diverse restaurants and quirky shops of Sunset Junction. The neighborhoods of LA's trendy Eastside (Los Feliz, Echo Park, Atwater Village...) are easily reachable in a few minutes by Uber. Or, if you are adventurous, take the bus to DTLA (downtown LA) to see all the great things there. Much to explore- and a peaceful retreat to return to at day's end.
Cuter than a button and right in the heart of Silver Lake!
This is the spot. Walk two blocks to all of the cafes, shops, restaurants, and wine bars of Silverlake. Drive 2 miles and you are in Griffith Park, one of the largest urban wilderness areas in the US.
Whether you come to LA for work or pleasure, this cottage gives you the best of both worlds-- convenience and privacy. Hollywood is just 10 minutes away, Downtown is 15 minutes away, and all major freeways are very easy to get to. For your comfort: high thread count sheets, a kitchen with a dine-in counter, a table/desk area, full bath with vintage subway tile, locally handmade organic soaps & hairdryer, washer/dryer on site, and private yard. Every detail has been lovingly considered and recently redone. You will not be disappointed!
The bed in the master bedroom is a double. The sofa is a pull-out; also a double.
Also, the building immediately next to us hosts 12-step meetings. Occasionally you will hear a group clap as a speaker finishes talking, but other than that you won't impacted it. There haven't been any issues with it. A previous guest hadn't seen this noted in "Other things to know" below and asked me to mention it another place on the listing.
You have the entire Cottage and the private lavender-shaded terrace just outside the front door. It's a great little get away.
The building next door hosts 12-step meetings. This can cause parking to tighten up in the evening- but it usually opens up again around 9-9:30.
Also, there is a vintage gas stove in the kitchen. The pilot lights are always on. This is normal and nothing to be concerned about.

We don't live on the property- so guests have plenty of time time to themselves. We can always be reached by phone or text.
When we travel, it's important that the lodging aspect of our experience is hassle-free. We carry that through to our hosting opportunities, providing our guests with an ultra-easy check-in process and key access system. We love Silver Lake and have been renters and property owners in the neighborhood since 1996.
Our life motto is: today matters.
