About Portage Bay (Seattle, WA)
Portage Bay is a hidden jewel at the base of the other side of Capitol Hill. This small community is a cohesive mixture of floating homes and lovely historical homes with views of the Montlake Cut and Lake Washington.

Looking for Portage Bay floating homes with sailboat moorage in Seattle? Finding a protected area of Seattle's Lake Union for your sailboat can sometimes be tricky, but there is a cool eastern arm of the lake called Portage Bay and the floating homes there tend to have a larger percentage of great sailboat moorage opportunities.  In addition to the larger marina with rental slips towards the end of Shelby Street, there are Portage Bay floating homes with sailboat moorage on various docks along the south end of Portage Bay on the Capitol Hill side. Seattle floating homes can be found in other parts of Lake Union as well, but Portage Bay tends to be a more gentle water and as a result moorage is more protected. When looking for a Portage Bay floating home with sailboat moorage involved, m...

Portage Bay Including Roanoke Park Historic District Real Estate UpdatePortage Bay is a smaller neighborhood in the Northeast corner of Capitol Hill.  In the center of Portage Bay is the highly acclaimed Roanoke Park Historic District where you will find amazing examples of of Capitol Hill Mansions. In fact the Roanoke Park Historic District is one of the most breathtaking Seattle neighborhoods and Roanoke Park homes are usually sought after due to their character and quality as well as their proximity to Roanoke Park itself which is the crown jewel of Portage Bay. Portage Bay homes have always been few and far between as the neighborhood is smaller, but also well regarded and has low turnover. For the purposes of this evaluation, I am leaving townhomes, condos, and floating homes out o...

We sell a lot of Seattle floating homes in Portage Bay, but Portage Bay is an amazing part of Capitol Hill with exceptional homes on land, too! Portage Bay has some of the most beautiful and historical mansions in the city and many people don't even know it is there in many cases when I ask.  They have heard about the floating homes there and they have heard about Capitol Hill homes - especially around Volunteer park, but many don't know about the quiet little corner of Capitol Hill called Portage bay and sometimes Roanoke Park in the portion near Roanoke Park. You can get some amazing views in all directions form some of these estates and they are worth a look!  Portage Bay and Roanoke Park are in high demand for buyers in the know so if you do have a hoe in this area that you may be i...
