Voted one of the best meeting spaces in Seattle by Peerspace Open Door Awards, This 1930s houseboat is a one-of-a-kind place on Portage Bay, and was completely remodeled in 2020. Formerly owned by famous Seattle restauranteur Ivar Haglund. This is one of only four houseboats built on pilings, which means it doesn't float, you don't have to worry about getting seasick. Brainstorm your next strategic planning session with a front-row seat to all of the water activities on Portage Bay. The house sits 6-8 people comfortably and is very private. It includes an open living room, presentation monitor, full kitchen, and conference table. The sliding glass doors completely open up to the waterfront deck, creating an indoor/outdoor workspace with stunning views of Portage Bay, the University Of Washington, and both the University and Montlake Bridges. Across the street from the property is an Italian deli and grocery called Little Lago, which was recently rated by the Seattle Times as having one of the best thin-crust pizzas in Seattle. They also serve sandwiches, salads, espresso drinks, and pastries. Great for meeting snacks and lunch. Is something else in mind? Reach out and we'll see if we can accommodate it. A couple of things to note: there are 51 steps down to the house, parking is on the street, and we also have dock space if you want to arrive by boat with your guests or supplies. We can accommodate a boat up to 36 feet in size.

This is our 2nd time using this space and it always makes us happy. Dave is a fantastic host who is so easy to communicate with. Everything is clean, drinks in the fridge, and coffee was fantastic. We ate our lunch on the deck in the sunshine. It is the perfect Seattle offsite location. Love it!
