|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Ideally situated on the eastern side of beautiful Lake Sammamish for fabulous sunsets and a tranquil setting, the Cottage on Sammamish is a newly renovated vacation venue. You feel rested and away from the busy world. Many people say it feels you are in a boat with the large windows facing and very near the lake.
Yet, just up the hill from the house (5 min drive) is a large Safeway and a multitude of convenient take-away shops and restaurants. 10 mins north and you are in the middle of Redmond (Microsoft town!) and the Redmond Town Centre. 10 mins south and you have Costco, Bestbuy, FredMeyer, etc on the pretty town of Issaquah. Both towns are linked with a pretty well preserved state trail that passes on the back of the Cottage, where you can walk, run or bike. The cottage also is close to Seattle itself. (20 miles - 30 min)
Come enjoy the Cottage on Sammamish for your next vacation or corporate visit to the Seattle area.
The Cottage has:
Over 900 square feet of living space
2 bedrooms – sleeping up to 6 people
Complete kitchen (we mean it!)
Two sunny decks facing the lake
Shade deck on back of cottage surrounded by a relaxing, stunning garden area.
Parking for to 2 cars
Lake Sammamish: The second largest lake in the Seattle area is 7 miles long, 1.5 miles wide with a maximum depth of 105 feet. Bordered on the north by Marymoor Park and Lake Sammamish Park on the south, this is an ideal water sports lake. You can use our 3 kayaks to explore the lake or even our paddle board while vacationing at Cottage on Sammamish.
'Life is an adventure' and 'dreams come true if you believe in them' I have been two sayings that have fit together in my life. One dream I had was to learn to speak Spanish. I had never studied Spanish in any
of my schooling, and while working and helping raise my family I never found or took the time. It was not until I was into my fifties that I took my first Spanish course, and after that it became somewhat of a 'hobby' and then a passion. This passion also spread to the Latin
culture and my desire to communicate and get to know people in Spanish speaking countries. The adventures started when I chose as my was of 'immersion' into the Spanish speaking world, to travel by land and mostly bus through Central America and extensively in Mexico. I did this by flying only one way to my chosen destination and returning to the boarder, usually in Tijuana/San Diego by bus or at times by boat. This included from Guatemala/El Salvador, Mexico city and my furthest destination was Nicaragua.
Another passion is for the outdoors and nature and that includes skiing in the Cascade Mountains in the winter.
I have lived on the east shore of Lake Sammamish for 40 years. My wife and I moved from the Philippine Islands after finishing my tour of duty in the Air Force, together with our 6 month old daughter, into a small cottage which is still a part of a now larger house that got added onto a room at a time over many years. The 'Cottage on Sammamish' is next door and from there guest can enjoy the same beautiful views, stunning sunsets and fun activities I've been having for decades
We definitely plan to use this wonderful home again. It is so peaceful and restful. The decor was beautiful and well done.
We had the pleasure of staying at this amazing little cottage New Years weekend and it was absolutely FANTASTIC . Truly a special spot as described. This property is breathtaking and the view is beyond gorgeous. Don was an amazing host- readily available and extremely accommodating if we needed anything.
It's peaceful, quiet and exquisite. It made us feel right at home. Everything exceeded our expectations and we plan to be back in the summer to enjoy all the summer toys.
We just wanted to say thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us. We give this listing our highest possible recommendation
Thanks again :)
Great experience, beautiful location and unbeatable time with family!
Will definitely be back!
The owner was great to work with and the accomodations were perfect for the week we spent up there for a work training. Three separate areas for us to have our own bed and toys for us to use on the water. Everything worked out for us but we are pretty easy to please. If you need high end and fancy this would not be for you but if you are looking for easy and beautiful views this worked out great
Great location, comfortable lakeside cottage with wonderful views. Friendly owner next door, and grocery options close by. So relaxing, we barely left the cottage, an easy lakeside dinner with a glass of wine was our happy choice.
Everything was great with the rental. We appreciated Don's hospitality and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. We were shocked at how many people this little house could accommodate (3 couples with a kid or two would probably work just fine).
We had an amazing time at the lake house and are already looking forward to going back! The owner is very responsive and such a wonderful person that it was truly nice to get to know him. The location of the lake house is perfect as it's right on the water, but only minutes away from various town centers for easy access to supermarkets and such. Thank you for hosting us!
