Fairview Ave Houseboat Highlight

Dockside from the Willow Dock, you can see the roof top and all the beautiful surroundings here...

This has to be the best Seattle floating homes buy on Fairview Ave E in Eastlake.

This peaceful floating home has 1930 characteristics, but modern sensibilities – look no further than the gleaming hardwoods and modern slate bathroom for comfortable touches, but also don’t miss the fact that this particular houseboat has gas on the dock. The gas is on the dock and also in the home itself! There is a cozy gas fireplace in the living room to warm up on those gray days with.

We get a lot of calls for Lake Union moorage and this special floating home does have moorage with room for a couple boats depending on size.  One of the biggest surprises to people looking for houseboats is that they don’t all have moorage attached to them or even available. Not only does hti sone have it abundantly, but the slip for the house itself is also owned with low dues and a pet friendly dock.  It really has all the items on most people’s list for Seattle floating homes (even the roof top deck!)

We have had many people say this is the best priced Seattle houseboat on Lake Union and we agree – let us know if you want a private tour of what life afloat could be like here.

  • 2 Bedrooms Plus Sleeping Loft
  • Room to go up
  • Lake Union Moorage
  • gas fireplace

  • walk around deck

Eastlake Seattle Houseboats Dock Highlight – The Log Foundation

Looking at Houseboats and wondering about some of the docks?

Dock rules and By-Laws change, but here are some basics.

The Log Foundation is a group of 3 docks at and are on the three most South Seattle Floating homes docks just North of Terry Pettus Park.  The Log Foundation is a co-op.  This means the submerged land that their dock is on (less the DNR leased land) is cooperatively owned by the homeowners on the dock.

The Log Foundation addresses are:

2017 Fairview Ave E

2019 Fairview Ave E

2025 Fairview Ave E

Lake Union fluctuates almost two feet and is at its lowest point in August.  These three docks are not floating docks and so the houses go up and down depending on the water level in Lake Union while the dock stays the same height.  This requires stepping down or up to get on and off the houseboat or the dock.  Many clever home owners have come up with wonderful solutions.

Houseboaters in general tend to be quite considerate and thoughtful people, but The Log Foundation has some WONDERFUL people on it and the docks have great Southerly views of the city and Space Needle.  You can check for Seattle floating homes for sale on these docks by visiting our Seattle houseboats page on Cooper Jacobs.
