This suite has a private entry with bed, bath, and kitchenette. Guests love the memory foam mattresses (specify if you need one or both twin beds), the great shower, and the extensive selection of organic coffees and teas in the kitchenette, which has a mini-fridge, toaster oven and hot plate, as well as plates, cups, bowls, spoons, etc. The patio is open to all and guests often meet over a glass of wine at the common table.

State law forbids specific smoking areas but light 420 outside is ok.

El lugar

I recently updated this suite with a teak secretary desk (pull down style). With stylish lighting, hard-backed editions of many classic works, and original art by PNW painters on the walls, the atmosphere in the suite is relaxed and arty. Let me know whether you'd like one or both twin beds set up.

The "tearoom" (aka kitchenette) has a mini-fridge, toaster oven, hot plate, electric teapot, cups and saucers, dishes, napkins, silverware, etc. I always stock the fridge with some coconut creamer and a small pitcher of local raw milk. Just leave used items in the tub and I'll refresh as needed.

A sliding glass door opens onto a private patio area and around the corner is a secluded area in the side yard with wrought iron table and chairs.

The suite is located in South Capitol Historic district, a great area for walks and taking in the period architecture. We are a five minute walk from the state Capitol complex of gardens and stately government edifices and a few blocks farther takes you downtown where trendy shops, yoga studios, coffee houses and galleries await.

Your hostess, Lori, is happy to offer you ideas for daily excursions from sightseeing at the Capitol to trekking the national forest and day trips to the mysterious Mima Mounds.

I have two cats but neither are allowed access to this part of the house. I can't stop them from gazing longingly into your window, however.

Disponible para huéspedes

Park on the street and follow the orange lights up the driveway to the back gate. Let yourself in and cross the patio to the second set of steps where you'll see sliding glass doors and a padlock up high on the right door.

Guests should contact me through Airbnb's messaging before they arrive and I will tell them where to find the key. When you're here, lock the door from the inside and when leaving, use the padlock and take the key with you. When you depart, drop key back in the designated spot. Easy and safe ;-)

Atención a los huéspedes

When guests arrive they are usually tired, hungry, or in need of a shower-- not a long conversation (no matter how fascinating the hostess). So I show you around, make sure you have what you need, then let you settle in and do your thang. I do love helping guests who need suggestions on food, nightlife, and outdoor excursions, though, so please ask. I just like to be sensitive to your privacy so you can enjoy your trip!

Otros aspectos destacables

A few miscellaneous notes...

I provide some well water for drinking because our artesian well in Olympia has such delicious water! There is nothing wrong with the tap water, though!

Sometimes voices carry through the vent under the mirror in the hallway. Try closing the vent, which makes a big difference. You can also give me a call and I can ask the other guests to pipe down. This has only been an issue once in over 100 rental experiences, btw!

If you need extra blankets, a space heater, more cups or such, text or call me. I am rarely more than a mile away at any time! But I spend a lot of time on the third floor of the house and cannot hear much in the tearoom. If you can't find me, please feel free to knock at the front door!

I admit I like guests who keep it on the clean and quiet side, but The Livelyhood is an easygoing household and we're pretty accommodating if you're open and communicative. Vaping and 420 use is acceptable on the back porch of the tearoom suite, btw.

It was definitely a great place to stay! Private and comfortable. Having its own tea room really was an enjoyable way to wrap up the night curled up in bed with a good book. There was a lot of little details that gave the place a lovely atmosphere, the artwork, family pictures. Just cute little touches. It was also easy to find and just a few blocks away from the city. I came in the Amtrak but it was walkable to the downtown area but also the bus was just straightaway. Thanks for a wonderful night!

REVIEW UPDATE: I want to retract my earlier review of Leo's visit. He and I simply had a miscommunication and after hearing from him (and reading his kind review) I feel awful about not giving Leo the benefit of the doubt. I did not realize he was brand new to Airbnb. Leo was actually the ideal guest - he was clean, noticed and appreciated all my special touches to the suite, and was so quiet I literally did not know he was there! HIGHLY recommended to other hosts!!!!!

Lori's house is very beautiful and charming. The tearoom suite is well stocked with towels and extra blankets, and there is a ton of complimentary tea and coffee. We especially enjoyed the twig tea! The twin beds were comfortable and we wish we could've stayed a little longer to enjoy the patio in the back, and the company of Lori's very friendly cat. Lori is a great host and responds promptly to messages. The house is a relaxing 20 minute walk to downtown Olympia, so it's a fantastic location if you are visiting the area / hiking nearby.

There's something awkwardly beautiful about strangers trusting each other to share a roof, and the longer I host with Airbnb, the better I feel about humanity! I was surprised to discover how much I enjoy offering a resting place for people as they pass through in pursuit of their lives. Hosting them (you!) reminds me the world is still a friendly place full of good people.

The Livelyhood is an umbrella term for how I make ends meet in the new "gig economy" - Airbnb and private rental rooms, brand and marketing consultation, writing/editing services, and interior staging and design. I'm also ordained to officiate weddings and other ceremonies.

I get excited about art, architecture, archeology, geology, history, language, ancient cultures, yoga, mysticism/esoterica, world travel, poetry, literature, film, deep ecology...stuff like that! I've lived in Washington State since 1990 and can make recommendations on everything from day hikes to beach trips to rainforest adventures.

Visit the State Capitol campus, tour the marble-filled dome where the legislature meets, browse the Farmers Market (open four days a week through December), or check out The Evergreen State College, Olympia's renowned public liberal arts school. April guests should not miss the Procession of the Species, the oft-imitated-but-never-duplicated community celebration of the natural world.

If you need a clean, warm, art-filled and life-affirming place to land for a few days, the Livelyhood is your Om away from Om.
