BIRDSONG COTTAGE - RIVERSIDE RETREAT IN SNOQUALMIE VALLEY

Issaquah House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Escape to the river and mountains to your private, luxury retreat. Birdsong Cottage envelops you with comfort, peace and creativity. Come take time to relax and renew. Stroll along the river, feed the fish in the pond, and enjoy the vast variety of birds and wildlife in the large backyard and gardens. This is also a perfect place for family gatherings, weddings, retreats and corporate accommodations.

Birdsong Cottage is in the heart of the majestic Snoqualmie Valley in North Bend, WA, also known as 'Twin Peaks' from the TV series. Convenient to local attractions and I-90 make this home a perfect spot between Snoqualmie Pass and Seattle. This is a beautiful drive along the I-90 corridor, also called the 'Mountains to Sound Greenway.'

Birdsong Cottage is within minutes of Snoqualmie Falls, the Mount Si Trailhead, several golf courses (one is a short walk down the street), the North Bend Outlet Mall, and the brand new Snoqualmie Casino! Marvel at the panoramic view of the Cascade Mountains and the 3 forks of the Snoqualmie River running through them. The wildlife viewing is incredible - especially our local elk herd!

The home has been professionally decorated with tasteful colors, healthy, living plants and bird-theme decor, giving the home a peaceful, spa-like feel. The fully-equipped, gourmet kitchen features a sunny, greenhouse window and has many wonderful amenities, including a coffee maker with “Starbucks” coffee, a selection of teas, creamers and sweeteners, filtered water, and a crock-pot, rice-maker and popcorn-popper. This is in addition to the standard pots and pans, cookie sheets, toaster, blender, microwave and beautiful service for 18! The dining room table can seat up to 10, and there are two additional fold-out tables if needed.

The living room is elegant, yet casual, with a leather sofa, comfy chairs and floor-pillows, perfect for movie-watching! Enjoy the 40” flat-screen HDTV with cable and movies provided, including the “Twin Peaks” series. The wood-burning fireplace (logs included) is perfect for winter evenings. A game closet is also stocked with board games!

We've spared no expense with the comfort of the beds and bedding with “Beautyrest,” pillow top mattresses, 450-thread count Egyptian Cotton Sateen sheets and warm, down blankets (hypoallergenic). Relax in the 'River Rock' Master bedroom, the 'Green Room' and the 'Sparrow Room,' all named for their style of decor in restful, earthy-tones. The romantic Master bedroom has a King bed, cedar, cathedral ceiling, 32' flat-screen HDTV, views of Mount Si and a private bathroom. The 'Green Room' features a queen bed with a lovely, garden view. The 'Sparrow Room' has a trundle bed with two, twin mattresses which can be converted into a King-sized bed to best suit your needs. There's also a small TV with DVD player - perfect for the kids! Shared by all bedrooms is a bookshelf carefully stocked with some favorite novels, bird books and children’s books. Look for whimsical, bird touches in every room! We want you to feel pampered because you deserve it!

A very comfortable, full-sized futon sits in the family room and may be easily used for extra sleeping space. A queen-sized air mattress is also available upon request. Luxury bedding is provided!

The 2.5 bathrooms sparkle in calming, earthy tones with fluffy, white towels. The upstairs bathrooms have a tub/shower combo and a view of the beautiful backyard with sounds of the pond/waterfall and river. In elegant, driftwood baskets is a bar of Dove bath soap, body lotion, air freshener and bathroom cups. No need to bring toilet paper, kleenex or a hairdryer, as this is all provided.

Just out the back door, step into our backyard bird refuge. Each season has its own special beauty with overlapping bloom times for continued flowers and dramatic color. Professionally landscaped, the large yard attracts a wide variety of songbirds, chipmunks, dragonflies and butterflies. The custom pond and waterfall (with speckled goldfish!) provides relaxation with its blooming lilies and magical sound. The patio is furnished with a large, patio table and umbrella, chairs and gas grill. Also, a garden sitting-area has chairs and a stone fire-pit, perfect for s’mores! Help yourself to the blueberries and raspberries, or snip some of the fresh culinary herbs available Spring through Fall. The backyard is fully-fenced and great for children and pets to play. Enjoy all the seasonal changes and unique birdhouses as you stroll along the wildflower walk, across the bridge and up to the large deck which overlooks the river. Take in the view of Mount Si, the colorful sunsets, and later, gaze up at the brilliant night sky. Also, if you’re lucky, you might hear the hootings of our Pygmy Owl.

The 100’ of private riverfront is a great area for trout-fishing; or visit the beach to see water-striders, periwinkles and minnows in the river pools. This is also an easy spot from which to launch your kayak or inner-tube. Equipment rentals are available. You may even get to see a kingfisher, osprey and/or bald eagle who are frequent river visitors! Also, you will find easy access to the Snoqualmie Valley Trail, great for walking and biking.

Each reservation includes either a complimentary bottle of Snoqualmie wine or a gift-certificate to Boxleys, a fabulous, local restaurant with live music each evening! Complimentary pet amenities are also available, including gourmet treats, towels, toys, pet beds and bowls. If interested, ask about our spa packages! We invite you to be our guest at Birdsong Cottage, offering you superb accommodations, flexibility, privacy, personal attention, and afford ability!

Birdsong Cottage is quickly becoming a popular hot spot for small intimate garden weddings! The private backyard and park-like setting is a lovely place to get married! Ask about our unique and affordable Wedding Package!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved the serenity, the rain (it rained on our wedding day too!), the birds, the lovely grounds and the warm and cozy cottage - a home away from home! We enjoyed seeing Snoqualmie Falls for the first time in the 37 years we've lived in WA. Thanks for everything!

A TRUE SLICE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
We were fortunate to stay an entire month is this well cared for home. Landscaping was out of House Beautiful. Interior was spotless, and artistic. Every possible appliance you could ask for was provided and all top line. We've stayed in many VRBO homes and this was by far the best. I would even recommend it for my Mom! If the pictures look too good to be true, they are all that beautiful. The owners were very considerate and helpful, always available for any need. If you haven't already visited this unique place, you should do so soon.

OUR FAMILY WILL RETURN!

  • 5 of 5
We rented Birdsong to host a retirement party for my in-laws. Not only does Pat have great communication, she is incredibly helpful. As this was my first time organizing an event with 40 people, I had a number of questions. Pat put me at ease with her experience.

The cottage is roomy inside, and the layout allows for the group to feel all together or to have space. Beds were comfortable, the kitchen well laid out, and the master is super spacious.

We've rented a number of times through VRBO, and nothing compares to the grounds here. The yard is fully fenced and has access to the river. Even though there was a burn ban in place while we visited, we still spent an evening together talking around the fire pit.

One of my mother-in-law's favorite memories is how easy the party was for all ages to enjoy. The children played an imaginative game of "Defenders of the Forest" and the adults were able to relax and enjoy conversation.

Our family will be back! Thank you, Pat!

WISH WE COULD STAY LONGER!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing stay. Our teenage sons did not want leave. We wish we could have stayed longer and spent more time relaxing in the backyard. Thank you for allowing us to bring our Samoyed and miniature schnauzer. Our dogs loved exploring the backyard with our sons.

We will definitely come back for a longer stay!

WONDERFUL HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had an extended stay at Birdsong Cottage while on a work contract. We couldn't have asked for a more warm, inviting place with all the comforts of home, not to mention having a wonderful hostess in Pat, the owner. She always made sure we had everything we needed, and was responsive to any questions or needs we had to make our stay more enjoyable. The home was very clean, and the furnishings and linens were luxurious. The views of Mt. Si on a clear day from the house were spectacular. The yard was so peaceful and private, and often times we would spend evenings relaxing on the patio or by the fire pit, listening to the river. One of our favorite things was to watch all the bird activity through the picture window. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Birdsong Cottage, and truly feel this was our "home away from home". We can't wait to return some day for a visit!

FAMILY STAY AT BIRDSONG

  • 5 of 5
We had a mini-reunion at Birdsong Cottage in July. It couldn't have been better. The location is beautiful and the kids loved spending time at the beach, just steps from the backyard fence. All the flowers were so beautiful and the yard is spectacular. The house was very comfortable and we loved the extended space offered by the backyard furniture. The house is delightful, with little bird touches everywhere. Everything was well stocked and just as advertised. We were a big group of 8, with a few extra during the day and there was plenty of room. Thank you Birdsong for a wonderful stay.

We had a wonderful time! The attention to detail is very impressive. It's obvious your commitment to our comfort with the kitchen supplies, toiletries and very comfy beds. Your info book was very helpful. The sound of the river and songbirds were very relaxing.

We were going to the grocery store our first morning and saw about 40 elk!Then we turned towards town and a bob cat came out and crossed the road in front of us. Wow! Neither of us had ever seen one in the wild before, what a treat.

How blessed you are to be in such beautiful God's country. The falls, hikes you suggested were very worth while. We didn't realize you were surrounded by such mountains. Anyway, it was a priceless time having our whole family together and was very blessed to find your beautiful place to spend it together. Thank again and we hope to come bak for our next family reunion!
