The property is well maintained and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay very much and will stay with Stefan on our visits to Kirkland.
This is the second time we have stayed at Forbes Cottage. We like the privacy and having a kitchen to ourselves. Everything is clean and in working order. There are some nice walks nearby.
Our visit was for business and some R&R. The cottage was very comfortable; clean, quaint, cozy and functional from kitchen to bath. Stefan was available by phone, but best by text. As for a "welcoming" feeling, there was no formal greeting (or face-to-face at all) at check-in as you might be accustomed to when checking into a hotel. There were no advance instructions as to how we'd check in, so I called Stefan upon our arrival and he informed me that the door to the cottage was unlocked and the key would be on the counter. The cottage is located on a larger private property, tucked away in a residential neighborhood just next to a Senior Living apartment complex...my mom enjoyed chatting with some of the residents as they were out and about. The Wifi signal was not very strong, so don't plan for it. Some listed accommodations, such as laundry facilities and breakfast options are no longer available. Prior to our arrival, I had requested some dining options from Stefan and he did assist by sending a link to some local restaurants along with some specific suggestions. Overall, our six day stay was pleasant. I can understand why people would return to the cottage whenever they visit Kirkland.
The cottage is immaculate. Stefan has it in a ready state for anyone looking to get away to a scenic location. The location is quiet and although near everything feels secluded. This is an ideal vacation rental for a couple.
I however was out here on business and working on a thesis in the evening so I didn't avail myself fully of what was offered, but I would have booked another week had it not already been reserved. I will definitely stay here in the future. Stefan is a great host.
The cottage was clean and comfortable,good home base for day trips in the surrounding area.The photos of the lake and lot are years old as the lake is not visible or accessible due to the maturity of trees and other growth,and no boat is available.
Great Iittle cottage! Had a peaceful weekend, would definitely use again if in the area!
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!
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.
I rented this location for my parents. The house is very elegantly and minimally decorated. Everyone one would every one from a stay can be found at this location. Private, clean, kitchen (fully stocked), shower, tv, and queen sized bed! Much of the time was spent away from the house, sightseeing in the city. So we never met Stefan, not that that is a bad thing but the privacy was very nice considering the location of the cottage to the main house. The cottage is in a very quiet location at the end of a dead end street, at night time you can hear the sound of the crickets chirping with very little background noise from the interstate. To downtown Seattle, we were about 20-30 minutes away depending upon traffic. Stefan had left a handful of brochures out to help us plan our sight seeing trip. We would definitely stay in this cottage again. Beauty, price, and quality were all right on!
Stefan was a wonderful guest! Friendly, great communication, and very clean and respectable! Highly recommended! Thanks!
