Dear [Recipients Name],

I write to thank you for hosting me at your house last week when I was in Seattle.

We had a business conference, and I didn't know where else to go. I must say I had fun a lot of fun living in your house for one week. The late night conversations and the cookouts were something. We should be doing that more often, what do you think?

Once again, thank you so much for your kindness and for welcoming me into your house wholeheartedly. I felt at home.

Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
