Tranquil Lake House near Seattle, Issaquah, Redmond

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms – Sleeping up to 6 people

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!)

Living Room

Dining Room

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.

About Gustavo Junqueira

'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.

Why Gustavo Junqueira chose Puget Sound

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

Guestbook comments from the manager

We definitely plan to use this wonderful home again. It is so peaceful and restful. The decor was beautiful and well done.

Perfect relaxation spot

  • 5 of 5

House is everything the listing describes. Amazing view, great custom furniture, comfortable beds, all the necessities. We were staying in the area for work and it was just perfect to come back in the evening and enjoy some BBQ on the patio watching the lake. If we are in the area again, this would be our first choice!

Getting to be like home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our sixth stay at the Lake House. We stay here because our daughter and her family are a few miles away and we can visit and yet have our own space. Lake Sammamish is buzzing in summer - its pretty quiet in March - just the ducks, cormorants, eagles, otters, and swans. So soothing to sit and look out at the lake. We love the trail - walked 3 or 4 miles each day. The cottage is perfect for us - amazing views, quiet, comfortable. Our daughter and her family came over for dinner and we fit the seven of us around the kitchen table. Don And Sarjo are wonderful hosts. This is a lovely little retreat! We're returning in August!

Beverly- Epic Views-Amazing Cottage

  • 5 of 5

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 :)
