About This Listing
Enjoy a barbecue with your family and friends with this beautiful lake view. Some guests like to bring our movable tables to this deck and have dinner under the awning.
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.

2 bedrooms – sleeping up to 6 people
Complete kitchen (we mean it!)
Two sunny decks facing the lake

This house is so nice and quiet! It truly is a little sanctuary in this busy world. I would not change a thing
We had a really amazing stay at this house. .. we enjoyed every minute there and the view from the house from the sunset till night it's so beautiful I can't describe! I met such an nice people! It was our first time there but definitely not the last one. P.s. my fiance is so hard to impress but this time I did it! Thank you for am amazing weekend!
We came here very tiring but the cottage shined us up. This is a lovely cozy lake side (oh no, just being on the lake) house that is just spectacular for family getaway from the noisy metropolitan cities. We like the host Don who is a nice gentleman with friends and family members from all many parts of the globe, Brazilian, African, etc. we had a lot fun from BBQ and chit chatting with friends from local. This has been a wonderful time for us and we are expecting to visit again in the Summer time if allowed.
This property and the host are excellent. Don is an excellent host. Great communicator, very responsive and thoughtful. The house was wonderful and really gives you an appreciation for the pacific northwest. It is bittersweet to write how much I enjoyed the stay, because I know this will drive interest and limit availably for people like me! :)
Relaxing and beautiful. I used the lake house for a business trip. It was the best venue for business meetings and for a homemade business dinner. The views across Lake Sammamish are breath taking. I really lucked out finding this gem by the lake.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Cottage! It's right on the lake with a beautiful view. We stayed there for 3 days and Don made us feel very welcomed. The Cottage is equipped with everything you need - full sized kitchen, entertainment center, internet access, hot tub, full sized bath, heaters in every room - lots of space (which mattered to us since we were a big group). The weather was spectacular the last day and we were able to witness one of the most beautiful sunsets. Whether you are visiting Seattle from somewhere else, or even if you live just 20 mins away (most of my friends who stayed with us were), this will be a perfect vacation home!
About the Host, Gustavo
I love traveling and meeting people from different parts of the world. With that in mind I became a pilot, and even know I'm from Brazil, I got to know more of US than most Americans. Sharing the same passions I became friend to Don Johnson, a over 60 years old young (in heart) guy during an avalanche when I was working at a ski resort, near Seattle during my academic summer break in Brazil. Don Johnson helped me to achieve one of my biggest dreams (to become a pilot). He and his wife hosted me at their place on Lake Sammamish during my fight training and now I have unforgettable memories for the rest of my life. He owns this beautiful piece of property and now I help him with all on line inquiries and reservation, as he's not a computer guy. He lives at the house next door, and I'm sure he will be happy to help in any need when he's not traveling himself. Another person you might get to know during you visit is our friend Sarjo, a beautiful lady from Gambia, who will also be there at the house next door if you need anything.
