Feels like you are in the country

  • 5 of 5

With all the flowers surrounding the property, you feel like you are in the country - even though Seattle is only 20ish minutes away. The rental was smallish, but it served our needs very well. The beds (and couches) were comfortable, and there was plenty of natural light from the many windows. The views were great - you are right on the lake - and it was a lot of fun using the provided paddle boat and kayak. All in all, we would definitely rent here again.

Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

This property is located about 20 minutes South of Seattle. The hosts that live in the upper unit were very kind and receptive to any needs we had. There is a retail area along with a mall, groceries, gas, etc. within 5 minutes. It was very nice to be on the lake, have a fire and relax on the back deck.

Quiet, beautiful, clean, and excellent location for competative swimmers!!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was the perfect fit for our family when our son competed at the 2018 Northwest Region Age Group Championship Swim Meet. We were able to cook and relax between prelims and finals. The neighborhood is quiet, the little lake is beautiful and Kathy is an amazing hostest! We loved it. Just 10 minutes from the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center.
