It doesn't get any better than this. Experience the Puget Sound the way it was meant to be experienced. Get the luxury and amenities you'd get at a hotel with all the convenience, privacy, space and romance of a vacation rental bordering a large greenbelt with a lake. Relax in this serene retreat with nature at your back door yet with the convenience of city living in the heart of Kirkland on the Eastside of Seattle. You’ll get to enjoy your own private space with a bath, bedroom, living area and kitchen in a cottage designed with your comfort and privacy in mind.
Our home away from home is newly furnished and decorated and has proven itself valuable for traveling business, academic & medical professionals, short-term/transitional Seattle stays, vacationers and single or double occupancy on a nightly/weekly basis while visiting friends and family.
Utilize our bed and breakfast option or cook your own meals during your stay! Breakfast is a delicious assortment of fresh fruit and pastries, cereals and hot breakfast sandwiches served in the mornings. Or perhaps you need a bag lunch for your business meetings or sightseeing around the Puget Sound? We have you covered. Just let us know! Our goal is to make you feel at home. For meal pricing see the pricing section below. (Visit our image gallery for more pictures.)
If you’re traveling from Germany, let us assure you that you will enjoy your stay. We speak fluent German, and are more than happy to make this an experience you won’t forget. And just so you feel right at home we offer a German style breakfast as well.
Your accommodations include one bedroom with queen-size bed, full bathroom supplied with refreshing body and hair care goodies for use during your stay. You have your own kitchen and dining area complete with oven, refrigerator and cooking utensils. Relax on the deck with protected wetlands and a quaint lake as your scenery. A row boat is parked at our dock for you to use at your convenience. Cable TV, wireless Internet, laundry and print/fax services are available as needed.
After many years living in Seattle, we continue to be awed by the beauty of this neighborhood, its proximity to nature, and its breathtaking sunsets. So, pour a glass of wine, come relax outdoors on the deck, and watch the sun slip behind the lake and trees as it illuminates the sky.

couldn't have been easier. I was in a last minute scramble to know where I was going to sleep that night. Stefan came through, touched base via phone for directions and access. comfortable, easy access, will remember for future use - thanks!
Stefan's cottage is a great, inexpensive place to stay in Kirkland. Stefan has created a small but well designed space, perfect for one or two people, with a lovely natural area behind the house. I was in Kirkland for a 5 day workshop, and it was the perfect spot to come home to so I could do my homework and cook a meal. It is located just west of 405, but there is a walking/biking bridge over 405 just north of the cottage so it is possible to walk or bike into downtown Kirkland and avoid the main roads. I will definitely try to reserve this cottage again the next time I visit Kirkland! Thanks Stefan!
Our stay was great. Stefan was a great host, and the cottage was perfect. It's in great condition, well kept, and clean. I'd love to stay there again.
Stephan has done a great job with this rental. The kitchen and bathroom are both new. The place is small but has everything you need to be comfortable.
Thanks for having us we will be back!
We had a lovely stay in the Lake Forbes Cottage. I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a small, private place to stay.
After spending more than I budgeted for plane tickets, I was scrambling to find an affordable room. Stefan really helped me out in booking me last minute. My flight arrived after 11 pm, he was very accommodating and called to check my status and provide valuable directions to the cottage. The space was very nice, full kitchen, nice bathroom, shower had good water pressure and hot water. Excellent location, close to freeway, with a 24 hour walgreens and grocery store down the street. Every night my girlfriend and I were so thankful we had a quiet private cottage rather than a noisy hotel room with slamming doors, ice makers, loud guests, etc. Check in and check out were a breeze. Would definitely stay there again.
Perfect location, perfect price, perfect cottage, friendly hosts. Doesn't really get much better than that.
We had an amazing time and if back in the area again will certainly try to book again.
Stefan greeted us, gave a quick tour of the cottage, and was gracious as a host. He was friendly, sincere and made himself available for any questions.
Check out was a breeze. This place fit the bill for what we needed.
Comfortable and charming cottage located in residential neighborhood. Super clean and relaxing work/pleasure weekend where every need was met in a speedy and efficient manner. I have recommended it to my friends in Kirkland who have frequent out of town guests. Highly recommended as an option to boring hotels!
This was our second stay at the cottage. We love the privacy and rustic setting. The cottage is clean and quiet; perfect for two people with room to relax after a hectic day.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
