Overview

Sammamish Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

Fantastic location and lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful Lake House Experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Lake Sammamish cottage! It was cozy and comfortable and the water toys were used daily! We had wonderful sunsets and daybreaks and loved to hear the sound of the water from the master bedroom. Thanks so much to Don and his family for being such gracious hosts. Thanks to Gustavo for making the arrangements so easy. We will be back!

Wonderful get away on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this lakehouse. We loved the location right on the lake and adjacent to the bike path. We swam in the lake every morning and also used the kayaks and paddleboard. Don, the host was super thoughtful and helpful to us. We would highly recommend this place.

Great stay, very welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the lake house for 4 nights with my parents and children, we had a great time, swimming, boating and exploring the area. It felt like staying at our own place and Don was very accommodating with any requests. We had amazing weather and rented a boat which made exploring the lake even more fun.

Perfect place to rest body and mind!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property! The location is absolutely perfect for relaxing with spectacular lake views but also extremely convenient for outdoor activities.

There is a walking path right behind the house that is perfect for running or biking. The property is also located close to Tiger mountain for more involved hiking. At the house itself there are paddle boards and kayaks for the guests to use. Or just sit on the dock and enjoy a evening cocktail. A truly relaxing vacation. The only negative is that our stay had to come to an end!

Great view of Lake Sammamish

  • 3 of 5

Although the home needs some updating and parking is very tricky we enjoyed our stay. Neighbor came over to make sure we didn't need anything and to offer her hot tub use which was nice. The washer and dryer downstairs were very useful as well as the separate room heaters to warm up on the chillier nights. We were unable to walk on beach nor use the dock since it was underwater due to excessive rain. Lots of bugs in the area so make sure to close doors quickly or the house will quickly fill up with flying critters. Furniture was stiff and rather uncomfortable other than one rocker chair in the living room but the view from the large windows was pleasant. Host was very respondent to any correspondence and kind.
