About The Owner

We are a family of 4. My husband grew up on the Eastside. We met in Seattle and have lived on the eastside since 1994.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2010

Why The Owner chose Bellevue

The view and the location---Simply the best!! A separate cottage in a beautiful setting with views of Lake Washington, and close to the Bellevue Square Mall, Factoria Mall, and many wonderful restaurants.

What makes this cottage unique

Location that's convenient to everything ....along with quiet & peaceful views of Lake Washington. Private, in a beautiful area, forested yet so close to the big city! Waterfront beach & parks are 1/3-1/2 mile, kayaks and canoes can be rented at Enatai waterfront park (1/3 mile away)!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have traveled the world staying in many different accomodations and this rates up near the top of the list!! Thank you for making such an inviting, comfortable and well-equiped spot for weary travelers. We have our daughter and her family nearby and it was wonderful to have such a perfect retreat so close to them. We sure hope to be able to stay here again!

Absolutely Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we drove up to cottage to the sad day when we left, the experience was fantastic. We arrived to a spotless kitchen and saw Karin had provided us with a bottle of wine, chocolates, and food for breakfast. We were also delighted to see so many coffee choices, and a fully stocked kitchen. The cottage is warm and inviting, and the view from the living room was amazing. The entire stay was effortless and relaxing. We felt completely welcome and comfortable in their cottage. We hope to return again next summer, it was a perfect experience. A very big shout out of Thanks for the memories!

Love the place!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I picked this cottage for the view, but it turned out to be a lot more than that. It's in a nice quiet and serene neighborhood yet not far from places we wanted to go. It is packed with amenities including a bottle of wine and a bar of chocolate that made our stay really convenient. There's also a bbq grill outside that you can use. Our stay felt like home. I loved waking up to that view every morning. Looking forward to staying here again.

Scenic View Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was really quite comfortable and quiet pleasant. The neighborhood is very quiet. Even though we did not utilize the kitchen for cooking, it has everything needed to cook and prepare meals. The owners were extremely gracious and provided a continental breakfast for the first few days we were there. We stayed three weeks in the cottage and it was lovely having a washer and dryer available along with laundry detergent and other supplies. There were ample supplies from towels, paper towels, coffee, condiments, coffee cream, and tea. Extra bedding was provided if needed (we did not utilize it), games, movies, tourist maps and information. They have literally thought of everything!

My husband and I stayed here for four nights while visiting family in Bellevue. The cottage had anything you would want including a welcome package with a bottle of wine, chocolate and some breakfast items. It was very clean and just as described. Karin was a pleasure to work with and sent a quick email to make sure everything was working out for us. It is in a great neighborhood and the view was lovely to wake up to each morning. We had friends stay on the pullout one night and there was plenty of room for everyone. So much better than a hotel and a very reasonable rate!

Cottage was exactly as advertised. Very nicely appointed. information supplied onsite was amazing. Kitchen very well stocked. Situated in a posh area. Hourly bus service just up the road. Main bus line between DT Seattle and DT Bellevue just a few blocks away. A pleasant one hour walk to DT Bellevue. The cottage was very clean, comfortable bed, and dead quiet. Would definitely stay there again, and definitely recommend to friends.
