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 was very helpful in showing us around her condo. She took about an hour of her time to make sure we were comfortable, show us around the property, and give restaurant suggestions.
The condo was quite beautiful. We loved having the full kitchen, which was well-equipped with everything we needed for making breakfasts in-house.
Kara had a great place, we really enjoyed our visit. Everything was clean, modern, and friendly. She was a courteous and enjoyable host and helped make our temporary visit in Seattle very homely. Chuckanut was a great drive, by the way!
5 STARS! Kara was an incredible host.. and her place is immaculate. This may be the BEST LOCATION in all of Seattle. Located right on the lake and you see the seaplanes land right out your window.. Truly breath-taking. You are right in the center of everything. Awesome restaurants, night life, Trader Joe's down the street. The bus stop is just steps outside your door.. and it can take you to downtown Seattle in a few minutes. Lake Front view, you can see the seattle Space needle, an AMAZING host, and 5 star accommodations.. what more could you ask for?
PS. There were LOTS of pots. I cooked all kinds of stuff, with no problem. It turns out the guy below didn't check a drawer where they were all at ;)
The place was wonderful and in a great location. Kara's place was really clean and it was also a perfect size place for me and my friend. There is a great view of the water from her huge private balcony. The kitchen is filled with all of the necessary utensils needed during a short stay (no pots or pans). She provided towels, clean sheets and one of the rooms even had an electric blanket (the blankets were amazing!). She also left adequate close and storage space for my stay. There is a washer and dryer in the unit which is very convenient. The shower has plenty of hot water, which can be very helpful during the colder months in Seattle. Also there is no cable TV, but I was able to hook up my laptop using an HDMI cord and watch movies during my downtime. There wasn't any WiFi at the time but it didn't take too much away from my stay. There are a couple of stores, restaurants within walking distance. Eastlake is also just a few minutes away from downtown and a few minutes away from the University of Washington campus. Overall, I had a great stay and I would definitely recommend the place.
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.
