Mercer Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms (Sleeps 4), 1 Full Bathroom, Fully Equipped Kitchen, Living Rm, Study
While staying at the Duck-In, you’ll be able to experience unique waterfront living just minutes from Seattle. You'll have 100 feet of beautiful Lake Washington shoreline right outside your front door. Enjoy scenic panoramic views of the lake (and peekaboo views of Mt. Rainier on a clear day) within the cozy comforts of the cottage by taking it all in through its large living room and dining room windows. During the summer you can relax in the large park-like yard while watching all the activity on the water.
The Duck-In is a perfect place for small families, couples, or for buisness travelers; anyone desiring a beautiful and tranquil setting near the greater Seattle area. Conveniently located between downtown Seattle and Bellevue, both featuring major tourist and shopping attractions, the Duck-In is just a few minutes commute either way. And it's only 20 minutes from Seatac International Airport.
The Duck-In is a one story, fully furnished cottage on beautiful Lake Washington. The cottage is one of the original houses built on Mercer Island, and has been lovingly preserved by the same family for three generations (the owners live right next door). The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and the second bedroom features two twin beds. A single hide-a-bed in the study area can be made available for sleeping if needed. The living room and dining area both feature a panoramic view of the large front yard and lake. The cozy living room has a TV (Cable, DVD and VCR), a comfortable couch with pull-out footrests, and two rocking swivel chairs. Lots of DVD’s and movies are provided for your entertainment. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen allowing you the choice of either eating out at one of the many great restaurants nearby, or going to the local grocery store so you can cook a meal for yourself. The Duck-In also has a small study room with a desk, WiFi and a telephone.
The yard is very large and maintained with care. Both sides are lined with trees and hedges adding to your privacy. The waterfront bulkhead is 100 feet long (swimming and other water recreation is done at your own risk… but not discouraged on a hot summer’s day). Also, during the summer you’ll be able to enjoy a glass of wine and watch all the boats go by while relaxing at an umbrella table in the yard. Or you could decide to read a book or take a nap in a lounge chair or hammock. A gas barbeque is also available for your use.
Kitchen cookware, utensils and staples are provided.

A treasure we feel so fortunate to find.
