We stayed at Kara's wonderful condo for 5 weeks and enjoyed our stay a lot. The place is absolutely beautiful and decorated with exquisite rugs and pictures and vases and art objects from her travels abroad. All appliances worked well and there was a lovely patio with comfy furniture in the back of the condo which is located in a very very quiet community with immaculately kept grounds. There is a cleaning service which comes in every other week. The internet was fast and the kitchen was very well equipped; no baking stuff but bowls and casserole dishes and pots and pans and cutting boards and sharp knives and lots of silverware and dishes. We would definitely stay here again.
We had an absolutely FANTASTIC weekend at the Huffman Family Lake Cabin. Kara was a wonderful and accommodating host. We were later than expected due to the amount of traffic we encountered coming through Seattle and Tacoma. So add extra travel time if you are coming from the north. She gave us ample instructions prior to our arrival for a great stay. This place is exactly as described, well cared for, and full of Love. There are unique experiences in every nook and cranny. It was so much fun to explore. There is literally something for everyone here. The dock provided endless hours of fishing and fun for our family. There was a canoe and two kayaks (one and two person) for our boating pleasure. The island just in front of the dock is a neat place to explore. There is also a ping pong table in the garage that kept the kids entertained for quite a while. We stopped at the 19 Mile Café for sandwiches and homemade cobbler (the Peach - Cherry seemed to be the favorite) on the way up to (website hidden). Helen's. We all thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing, extended weekend at Silver Lake and hope to return very soon.
Together with a friend, I needed a place to stay for 3 months in Portland. And we had a pleasant 3 month stay at Kara's condo. Since the first day Kara was very helpful and spent a lot of time to show us everything. The condo itself is very clean and got everything you need, even for a longer stay: Fully furnished, TV (Netflix via Apple TV), washer/dryer, wifi, a nice kitchen and a pool, which was very helpful on hot days when we came home from work. We liked it to have 2 bed- and 2 bathrooms and we also liked how Kara was improving our comfort while we were there.
The air conditioning is working perfectly: cooling on hot days and also, if needed, warming up the condo on cold days.
We also enjoyed the porch, which was great to hang out with friends and since Kara is doing some improvements to it, we liked it even more.
All in all, I have to say for even the smallest issues, we could ask Kara and she arranged a solution as soon as possible. The communication was always very fast and easy, thanks for that Kara.
We are quite confident, that you will have a good stay in her apartment and that you will have a good experience with Kara.
We had a wonderful time at this lakeside vacation! The house is very spacious and very charming, and the kitchen included everything we needed. Rental of this house includes use of the kayak, canoe, paddle board, and life jackets. My son caught his first fish-- what a great memory to take away! A 2 hour drive from home and this was a nice getaway. Kara is a kind and communicative host. Thank you.
this cabin was great. its just like the pictures show - right on silver lake with a private dock! i was riding my bike from seattle to portland and went straight into the lake on arrival - it was the perfect temperature.
kara was also very helpful and flexible. she left out several canoes/kayaks for our young boys (even thought we didn't end up using most of them) and also allowed us to arrive a little early.
Are you looking for a charming, comfortable, impeccably clean, family oriented retreat that can accommodate an extended family? This is THE place and the hostess, Kara, is absolutely wonderful! Lakefront, kayak & canoe, fireplace, board games, private master suite, fully equipped kitchen, (with complimentary Kuehrig coffee maker, espresso machine, etc), who could ask for more? We're almost tempted to not let others know of this wonderful family retreat so we could keep it to ourselves, but.... we want others to enjoy as much as did we. Thank you Kara! The Ronnings
Indescribably wonderful...but I'll give describing it a try anyway. That's how we feel about the (website hidden). Helen's Lakefront Cabin on Silver Lake. Struck dumb with admiration, yet eager to share our praise of this lodging. This is a lovely, spacious home in an unbelievably beautiful setting. Everything was in perfect working order, from the fully-equipped (and then some) gourmet kitchen to the huge screen television set, to the super comfortable mattress of the king size master bed. We enjoyed hours of wildlife watching the hummingbirds who visited the feeders on the porch, the ducks, geese (and 14 goslings!) who swam past, breeching bass and an osprey. There's an impressive library of books on a wide variety of topics, and a stunning collection of framed nature photography by Kara's father Dave. The house has such positive energy in it; clearly a well beloved, well maintained second home for many years for a vibrant, happy family. Kara was so accommodating, great at communicating with us and making sure our stay was all we could hope for and so much more.
My stay was FANTASTIC. Love the condo and love Kara!!
The condo is extremely comfortable and extremely clean. The views are spectacular. The location is ideal for anything you may want to do in Seattle!
Kara is so friendly, accomodating, and generous. She truly cared about me, my experience, and my comfort. I now consider her a life long friend!
Kara's condo is absolutely fantastic! It is very comfortable with great appliances and a fantastic porch that overlooks Lake Union. The roof top deck is great for sunsets! Comfortable beds and a luxurious bathroom. The location is fantastic! Less than a mile from Burke-Gillman, ~3mi to downtown. It was easy to bike everywhere and FANTASTIC restaurants nearby. There are places in the locked garage to put bikes and lock them up. The neighborhood felt very safe with a lot of active people. Kara was very accommodating and flexible with our schedule for arrival and departure.
Kara and her mother were such pleasant people to have to stay! Welcome anytime!
Kara and mum stayed 2 nights en route to Southampton to join a cruise ship headed towards Capetown for 49 nights! They are both friendly and sociable. Kara is very kind, caring and attentive to her mum.
I can recommend them to other hosts.
Kara was a delightful guest who settled in and made use of the kitchen and the deck. She even found my stash of cookies and enjoyed a few. But, above everything we talked about some deep things in which we were able to encourage each other. I consider her a friend. Pat
Kara and her sister were lovely guests! Very quiet and respectful of the space. We recommend them to the hosts of the world.
Kara and her friend Dorie were lovely guests. They are so cheerful and funny, always laughin about every littlr thing. They enjoy life so much! We get to know each other as we know from another life, from other reincarnation or something? :) We hope they are having a very good time in the cruise to Buenos Aires. We are sure they will have fun, they are fun themselves, they don't need a party, they are the party! ;) We wish to have you again in our home soon, please come back! Find us some boyfriends and send them here, too! Hahaha XD

Kara and her family were the perfect guests. Friendly, tidy and super thoughtful. I would be happy to have them back anytime.
Kara is the perfect guest. She is communicative, charming, quiet: she was in my BnB after my first big problem (the past guest kept off the keys of her room in Switzerland) but she was really patient, giving me the time to solve the problem. I hope she return in Naples for a new visit.
