With a spacious 900 square feet, there's plenty of room to stretch out and relax. Both bedrooms feature comfortable beds with top notch linens, plenty of pillows, and full closets for clothes and personal belongings. The "master" bedroom is extra long, with lots of space to set up the Pack-n-Play. The living space is open, airy and inviting--a perfect place to kick back and relax.
The interior is inspired by boutique motels and provides a stylish, inviting and fun place to spend time. You'll find a thoughtful mix of new and vintage furnishings, a rotating selection of original artwork, and everything you need to enjoy your stay.
Weather permitting, there's a comfortably shaded patio with outdoor dining set to enjoy lunch, or just relax to the babble and splash sounds of Issaquah Creek that fill the air. The fully fenced yard is professionally maintained and has mixed shade/sun throughout the day across the nice flat lawn--a perfect place lay out, or for young kids to play.
The house is ideal for families and small groups who want to experience the best of the Pacific Northwest, but would rather stay near the mountains than Downtown Seattle.
It's all yours--the space is not shared with anybody, and we do not live here.
Most of our guests stay for 10 days or more. So, the house has been designed and set up to make longer trips effortless, comfortable and easy.
All you need to bring is something to wear and something to eat. Welcome to the perfect home away from home!

"Olde Town Issaquah is ideal for people who want to experience the real Pacific Northwest, but prefer being close to the mountains instead of downtown Seattle." --A past guest
Olde Town is the original Issaquah township built back before floating bridges connected the East side of Lake Washington to downtown Seattle. Built on the broad, level, valley terrain, Olde Town is a throwback to better times with neighborhoods built at human scales (no need for cars), clustered around a main drag--in this case, Front Street.
Front Street offers more than a dozen restaurants, many of which are Seattle area favorites--including JaK's Grill, the Issaquah Brew House, and Max's World Cafe.
Bus service to downtown is good.
The Metro 554 is an express bus which stops in easy walking distance, and leaves every 20 minutes or so throughout the day.
YOU PROBABLY WANT/NEED A CAR:
Your best bet is a car. If you have one, then it's hard to find a better location in the greater Seattle area for ease of access.
You'll find drive times to popular locations posted at the top of the listing.
The house has two off-street parking spaces in the driveway, and there is plenty of street parking available as well.
Other Things to Note
The house is well loved and well maintained, but far from perfect. If you need new and perfect, then this is not the place for you.
Pets may be welcome, but arrangements must be made in advance.
