Bellevue Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, Bedrooms 2, Bath 1, (Sleeps 4)

~ Bellevue Lakefront Cottage ~

TEN DAY MINIMUM- NO EXCEPTIONS. ABSOLUTELY NO PETS. NO LARGE GATHERINGS.

Get away from city life, yet still be close to everything at Bellevue Lakefront Cottage. Your private retreat awaits you with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath in 1000 square feet of living space, plus ample outdoor space. The kitchen and dining areas are wide open to the large living area which features a whole wall of windows to maximize the gorgeous view of Lake Sammamish.

~ About the Waterfront and Lake Sammamish ~

Lake Sammamish is a large lake just 10 miles east of Seattle. It is 7 miles long and 1.5 miles wide with bordering cities of Bellevue, Issaquah and Redmond. Bring your boat and enjoy waterskiing, wakeboarding, tubing, or just take in the views and breeze on the water. There is a private dock for mooring your boat and you can launch at either Lake Sammamish State Park in nearby Issaquah,or Vasa Park, just a couple blocks away (fee to launch in both locations).

The beautiful, large yard features mature landscaping with an expansive grassy area stretching from near the house to the private sandy beach. Enjoy the fire pit down by the beach along with the vintage gazebo for outdoor meals. Or just step out the front door to the huge deck with new automatic awning and enjoy the amazing views of Lake Sammamish. The deck with a grill, comfortable patio furniture is the ideal place for BBQ dinners with family or friends. And what could be better than a breathtaking sunrise with your morning coffee?!

~ About the Cottage ~

Built in the 1920’s, this waterfront cottage has all the charm you could ask for, yet with modern conveniences. The kitchen includes all appliances, dishes and everything you’ll need for cooking during your stay. The dining area is directly off the kitchen and the large living area. There is ample seating in the comfortable great room and the wall of windows allows the light to flow into the room. There is a 40' flat screen TV and DVD player for entertainment, but you will never tire of the wonderful views of the lake.

The bathroom is nicely updated and has a full bathtub/shower tile surround and tile floor. It has a pedestal sink with a mirrored medicine cabinet for additional bathroom items. Lighting is great and there are plenty of towels for guest use.

The two bedrooms are just past the bathroom. The first features a queen sized brass bed and a 24' flat screen TV with a DVD player. The 2nd bedroom has a comfortable full or double sized iron bed. Both bedrooms feature period chandeliers adding to the cottage’s charm.

~ About the Area ~

Bellevue is the perfect spot while visiting the Seattle area. It is just a 15 minute drive due west to Seattle for all the activities and sightseeing you can take in. You are also 20 minutes from amazing hiking to the east. Snow skiing at Snoqualmie Pass is just 40 minutes away. The best shopping in the Northwest is right in Bellevue – all the high end stores are just 10 minutes away at Bellevue Square and Bellevue Place. With amazing restaurants, great nightlife, beautiful parks, fantastic museums, and renowned theater just out your door, you’ll love staying in Bellevue.

We have visited or lived in the West Lake Sammamish area for 40 years. When this 1920's house became available, we bought it and lived in the house for a few years completing many upgrades. After a few years it became a vacation rental. Best thing we ever did! We have been able to continue updating the property & have met wonderful people from all over the world!

Michael purchased this cottage in 2005

Location, Location and Location.!! The location is convenient to everything. We love being on the lake, but we are also about 15 minutes from the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, the Seattle Aquarium, Seahawks, Sounders and Mariners games. We also enjoy wine and beer tasting at Chateau Ste Michelle, Columbia Winery and Red Hook Brewery which are about 20 minutes away.

Lake Sammamish is simply the best.. The land around the house has a lush greenery almost like a private park. This private waterfront property has panoramic views of the lake and the Cascade mountains. We were so delighted to find we have jumping fish, soaring eagles, blue herons, lake otters, giant turtles, ducklings and pippens playing nearby all day long.

Downtown Bellevue which is about 10 minutes drive away provides culturally diverse, world class shopping and dining opportunities with the magical beauty and greenery of the Pacific Northwest.

3 BABIES AND THEIR TIRED PARENTS!!

  • 5 of 5
This was just what we needed to recharge our batteries. The open concept was great to entertain our children, but the outside open running, exploring space was even better! Our two year old twins had plenty of new toys to keep them occupied for days and our 10 month old also loved the toys the owners had for him. We did not take anything at all for kids. All was there from plates to life jackets!! When someone goes out of their way to get girls toys for our daughter, they deserve a very special mention., The owners are more than accommodating and warm... This rental slept all 5 of us very well and we had all the comforts of home plus much more.Nothing better than going home with laundered clothing! Easy access to the abundant activities in and around Seattle... We are hoping for another visit in the near future. Breathtaking is the one word to explain the view!

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
We are excited to have found such a neat place to stay when we visit our family (and old stomping grounds). We will stay here again.
The cottage is exactly as listed and photographed. I appreciate that the owners don't skimp on the kitchenware and other things available in the cottage. As an earlier reviewer stated, they've thought of everything!

Interstate 90 is only a few minutes away, so this location is central to anything you want to do. During our trip we visited family in Lynnwood, played in Seattle, and visited our old neighborhood in Maple Valley.

The weather was exactly as expected for Spring in the Puget Sound - a mix! We enjoyed walking the well manicured yard to see what things were beginning to bud and bloom. The owner was pleasant and helpful.

LOVELY LAKEFRONT COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
This was such a beautiful lakefront cabin to stay in. We had Thanksgiving at the cabin and the owners were kind enough to even make sure we had a roasting pan available. Attention to every detail was met or exceeded my expectations. The beds were comfortable as were the seating in the family room. We felt very much at home and had a wonderful time.

AMAZING LOCATION AND PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of staying at this house August 6 to the 27 this year and had an amazing time. The house was stocked with loads of beach towels, kids dishes and cups and all sorts of unexpected necessities of a home. The kitchen had plenty of dishes and cookware - I was able to make dinner for 12 without any problems.

Now on to the property! ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Waking up every morning to a view of Lake Sammamish and a huge yard with a beach was beyond peaceful, we didn't want to leave. This house is perfect for children, out 3 1/2 year old was busy on the beach all day everyday and our 14 month old had plenty of room to roam on the large lawn. They had beach toys, blow up toys, and games all waiting for us at the house.

We were lucky enough to have a boat and kayaks that were borrowed from family members. The lake was so peaceful most days we couldn't help but take the kayaks out almost daily. The water is warm and the lake is calm enough to get some great water skiing in. We met the landlord by chance on our arrival and they were very warm and inviting, making us feel very welcome to use their home to create new memories for our family and friends.

LOCATION: We were able to be in downtown Seattle in 20 minutes and Bellevue in 10. I have a large family in the Maple Valley area so the location was ideal for seeing family and getting into the city. The neighbors to the right of us were very warm and had kids about the same age as my oldes. They even came to roast marshmallows with us one night at the fire pit!

Don't hesitate if you are considering renting this house! Just writing this review makes me want to go back.

The only downfall for us was that the boat lift was not working (we weren't expecting one so it was not a big deal) and the swimming area near the shore was a little weedy - but you can expect that from pretty much any lake.

A TREASURE TO BE ENJOYED

  • 5 of 5
This property was recently opened to the public for vacation rent. I stayed here for a week in 2007 before the cottage was renovated and can recommend the proprietors as caring and responsible folk. I found the cottage to be immensely satisfying, clean, cheery with everything necessary for cooking and simple comfort. Nearby are grocers and specialty restaurants, the enjoyments of the old Bellevue where I grew up. The photos show even finer improvements to the cottage's furnishings and decor. A walk in the lush back yard to the Lake Sammamish beach is lovely especially at sunrise with the Cascades in the distance across the lake. I launched a little kayak from the beach and took a long, scenic paddle, then read the paper by the fire pit with a fire lit, snacked in the gazebo and put my feet up on the deck with a book to occasionally look up at the view. In the living room is cable TV to watch until time to retire for the night. I greatly enjoyed my stay there and would recommend this quiet cottage to individuals or families looking for a few days of release from the grind.
