    Near-City Escapes: Waterfront Hideaways Near Seattle

    If you’re a city dweller who needs a brief escape but doesn’t have the time for an extended getaway, it’s possible to find little waterfront hideaways near Seattle that can allow you to get away from it all without getting too far away from it all.

Read on about this cabin as well as some other near-city hideaways to add to my escape list from cabins to houseboats.
