City And Lush Forest Living!!! (SCROLL DOWN FOR CALENDAR) -- Ten Mins/Miles due North of Space Needle and the downtown core. This is a perfect 2000 square foot lodge set on a secluded half acre, dashed with a magical mystical fairy-tale feel. Awesome for weddings/events and lodging as it's pin-drop-quiet (no barking dogs or road noise) augmented by the calm winds rustling through the towering 100ft+ trees nestled in the lush Lake Forest Park located on the outskirts of downtown Seattle. The lodge sports 7 beds: a sexy loft with a queen size bed and 2 twins (or put together for one queen), king size mahogany sleigh bed in the master bedroom, sleigh queen size in 2nd bedroom, bunk-beds 3rd bedroom. Keyless entry/Push-pad front door lock with code makes for simple entry and exit for large groups. Don't run out of hot shower water with large groups at the lodge, as this vacation spot has unlimited hot water so no running out with back to back showers. The back yard is entirely fenced in for dogs and small kids to roam freely. All in all this is a woodsy camp ground fresh forest air fantasy come true.

Paradise on Earth, Lord of the Rings trees
If you must have stainless steel and granite counter tops the lodge is not for you. Most people might comment on the ample amount of bedding or the incredible amount of exterior glass ( 3 glass French doors, a glass slider, picture window, glass block inserts, a sky-lite twice as big as any I've ever seen in a house and two two-story glass walls). But for me the highlight was the PRIVACY. You can see the roofs of nearby houses over the privacy fence only if you stand in just the right spot on the second floor. The fully fenced back yard was paradise-on-earth for our dog. And with the 100 foot trees, I half expected Gandolf to step out of Lord of the Rings and come striding up the hill to join me on the back deck. The location couldn't have been better with a 10 minute walk to the shopping center to meet all your needs with restaurants, a grocery store, and much more.
For dog walkers, there are two nice parks (Animal Park and Blue Heron Park) less than 1/2 mile away. Both have doggie bag dispensers and waste cans. There is also a 20+ mile asphalt walkway within 1/2 a mile.
My greatest fear is that my review might cause the lodge to already be rented should we want it next year. We spent two months in the lodge and I can't imagine a better situation.
Great woodsy atmosphere
Great place to stay! Everything we needed was there. Its close to stores making it convenient.
So great we would like to own it!
We love the Lodge!
We have spent several weeks each of the last 2 winters at the lodge – great house, yard, and neighborhood for dogs and people. We’ve got our reservations in for this winter and are looking forward to our visit.
The area has lots of parks and great shopping center with 2 pizza places, a Himalayan restaurant and an excellent American grill. The shopping center also has a department store, a bakery and a no fees ATM at the bank. It is only a 5 minute walk down the hill.
As soon as we win the lottery the lodge will be unavailable – it will be ours!
Had an amazing time!
this is beautiful and The bedrooms are gorgeous and the house feels very homey like a home away from home
This property is for sale and I don't think any money has been put into it for quite awhile. Uneven and cracked tile, broken light switches, hole in deck, landscaping is bleak, knob missing on fireplace, mix matched sheets and towels, stained pillows and used bars of soap left in all the bathrooms are just some of the things I hope the new owner addresses. We had to go buy washclothes because we could only find one. If you have children you will need washclothes because the yard is basically dirt. They ask that you change the bedding before you leave. The bedding is stored in closets with way too many sheets, not sorted by size or color and that took up a lot of time as we were preparing to leave. Hard to find sets for most of the beds. Driveway is narrow and difficult to turn cars around before exiting onto street. That said, as a family we still had a great time. Several nice parks close by and groceries very convenient. Front porch is large and we sat there in the evenings and let the little ones play there so they could stay clean after baths. Large trees in back give privacy.
Thanks for your review and I'm glad you mentioned things you liked about the lodge. The lodge is not for sale though we did test market it for a short time. Regarding changing sheets, we do not require our guests to change sheets upon departure, that requirement was removed and the cleaning crew has their own way of accessing and storing sheets for their cleaning use. We also did not find any light switches broken though one is no longer in use purposely, nor did we find a hole in the deck or fireplace problems as all guests concerns are always addressed. The lodge has a campground feel and over 80 percent is covered by lawn and foliage with great lawn places for kids to play. The long driveway is not meant to turn around, but does provide great privacy as the lodge is set far off the street. Parking is ample as we have had over 100 guests for weddings and events over the years. Nonetheless, the lodge is as awesome as the pictures show and many guests say it looks better in person, and we have many guests attest to its quiet private serene feel and inspiring unique architectural ambiance. Good luck on your next adventure traveling.
Peaceful and spiritually refreshing!
I just stayed three nights at the lodge and found it not only to be magical and charming in the peace that permeates the entire property, but it was also scrupulously clean. All of the furniture & rugs had been steam cleaned just prior to our arrival & there were lovely fresh flowers to welcome us. The beds are comfortable and the furniture is attractive & just right for lounging in front of the beautiful fire while watching a movie. I also soaked in the jetted tub which was fantastic. It's the first time I've ever filled a tub that size where the hot water didn't run out way too soon! I will come back again as this location has a very special feel and is perfectly located for a lovely Seattle experience. I highly recommend the lodge for a truly relaxing and restful sojourn.
