Convenient to I5 directly on a quiet lake, this north-end home is perfect for an active getaway or a private retreat. It is also steps away from the INTERURBAN trail which connects bikers/runners from Seattle to Everett. Two Public Golf Courses across the water make the view even more lush and beautiful. Tucked behind all the favorite shopping destinations, you are within minutes to Costco, the north end's coveted Ranch Market. Edmonds Farmers Market and Art Galleries/Boutiques/Restaurants. Ferry to Kingston, the gateway to the Olympic Mountain range is also downtown Edmonds.
We have two rooms available for your northwest getaway. One is with a queen memory foam bed and cathedral ceilings. A picture window the length of the wall, facing the lake has a window bench directly beneath it with plenty of natural light to soak in the tranquility a lakefront home provides.

**there is a 9.5 lb. Maltese/Yorkshire mixed dog. 3 years old and hypo-allergenic i.e. non shedding/non slobbering puppy. Will bark when first meeting you, but as soon as Java gets to know you for 5 minutes, he will not bother you.

Hanni's place was fabulous. It is a bright lower level space, well equipped with plenty of room. The lake view is extraordinary. Hanni and her husband were very friendly and helpful. For me, this was a perfect location since it is very close to where I have some classes. Also, it is right at a major bike trail.
The bed was super cozy. I will be returning.
Hanni was the epitome of hospitable! the space was comfortable, warm, and lovely (and with a lovely view.) We felt private in our bedroom (which included the best bed ever!) And welcome and comfortable in the downstairs sitting area. The bathroom is down the hall, spacious, and spotless. The sitting area contains the well appointed kitchenette: sink, fridge, toaster oven, microwave, dishes, flatware... but really... the topper was the croissants and chocolate and the freshly made pot of coffee waiting upon awakening. Wow! I also have to mention the excellent choices of reading material that were available... my beloved got midway through a book and had to head to a library on the way home. We will definitely want to stay again if we are in the area. All the charm and style of a classic European B&B with decadent american comfort and the sweetest host ever. (Be aware: in icy weather you are walking down a driveway and across a wooden deck.) Also incredibly handy to i5!
Thank you for your review! In particular, for pointing out the parking space situation and conditions. Very helpful for travelers who need to make proximity to entryway a deciding factor. We will most definitely be more accommodating (how 'bout SAFE) in icy/slippery weather and have a dedicated spot that is closer to entryway--AND will have had it salted sufficiently so there is no chance of slipping or sliding across the wooden deck. (Just gave my son a guilt trip for not doing it BEFORE your arrival haha.) No, but seriously--thank you very much for that much needed alert. Glad you liked the book choices. I have to give credit to my hubby for that one--he has a lot of awesome books.
Hanni and the lakefront home were both great. The house is very pretty, and the downstairs area where the room is has tons of space and amenities - feels like your own little private home! We had a great experience both with the home and the hosts - a fantastic location, and a great host - awesome AirBNB experience!
Hanni and Achim were perfect hosts. They were generous and very comfortable to socialize with. They provided everything I needed and more (thanks again for those amazing crepes Hanni!). The room was private and the bed was extremely comfortable. At night the room could be made dark and I had no trouble sleeping. I love staying with airbnb hosts in general, but this stay was wonderful in every way. I cannot recommend this place enough. I would love to come back for my annual visits to the Seattle area.
Everything as described only better! Hanni and her family were wonderful hosts. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable. The suite was extremely comfortable for all 5 of us, and each evening we had a relaxing nights sleep. By far a much better experience than a hotel. Would recommend to everyone and definitely would love to come back.
We had an excellent stay in Edmonds. We came to visit my son, his wife and our new granddaughter, who live only 5 minutes away. Location was perfect, plus a great view of the lake. Very spacious for the 5 of us, including a busy 4 year old. It was the holidays, so we spent most of our time at my son's, but this was a great place to return to in the evening. Hanni really made us feel at home.
Since my wife, daughter, and I run, we really appreciated the easy access to the Interurban trail at the end of the street. Also, thanks for the cookies, Hanni.
We arrived late on Friday nite for a quick weekend visit to Lake Forest Park to visit my sister, her husband and my new niece, Emma. We had no problems meeting Hanni and getting settled. She was helpful, thoughtful, courteous and anticipated any potential problems we may have encountered. She also told us in advance who may be coming or going so we knew what to expect and generally made our stay worry free. When my daughters woke up early, Hanni was understanding as we live in a different time zone and reassured me that the noise of happy children was nothing to be concerned about. Truly a compassionate and understanding host! We all slept great, comfortable set up with great view. I look forward to a return visit.

We love to travel and meet people from all over the world. Pacific Northwest is a truly unique and gorgeous place and we feel that people can enjoy all that this place has to offer, right from our home. German and some bits of French and Italian (after a Rose or Prosecco) are spoken in our home.
The family is open to spontaneous, last minute planners, so do not hesitate to ask on a whim. Also, please, please include information about yourself when sending us your reservation requests... and make sure you have a couple of "Verifications". No 4-word one-liners, when checking for availability. As airbnb is a community of fellow travelers--we don't do this as a business but as a hobby of sorts and building long-lasting relationships. (Not that we are going to hover over you during your stay--haha--you will have your autonomy as guests.
Thank you so much for checking my listings and profile : )
