This is truly a magical place.

Thank you for sharing Blue Heron Lakehouse with us! This is truly a magical place. You are both extraordinary hosts, and the loving attention given to each and every detail in this home is beyond measure. Our favorite part of this trip was simply sitting in various places around the property and enjoying the spectacular garden and all the wildlife that visits it. We are avid birdwatchers and were thrilled to discover some of the best birdwatching we’ve ever experienced from the living room window. We look forward to our next visit!

We cannot express how perfect a setting this was.

Our family had such a wonderful time at your home! We cannot express how perfect a setting this was for a week, and especially for our family get-together on Saturday. We especially enjoyed your wide variety of games and activities on the lake, as well as relaxing in your gardens. Truly our only regret is that our time here had to end. Wishing you the very best and hope to stay here again.

The view, the home and the hosts were all exceptional

Brian and Leslie could teach a master’s class on being exceptional hosts. The view, the home and the hosts were all exceptional. There are beautiful views from every intimate seating area surrounding this property. Inside, there are several lovely areas for family gatherings. Leslie’s kitchen is better equipped than mine at home. They had some incredible restaurant recommendations as well. Our most favorite place was Fins Bistro across the lake.

If you thought the pictures were beautiful, wait ‘til you see it in person

This home has the best views, and the host is so very accommodating. If you thought the pictures were beautiful, wait ‘til you see it in person. We were in awe and had the best time here. The location was perfect. Far enough from the busyness of the city yet close enough to visit. The house has everything!! We wish we could just live there. I’d love to bring my family back as this would be a great place for a family reunion and the children would love it. There’s so much to do and so much room. We absolutely loved our stay and our host! If you’re on the fence about booking it, just do it and thank me later.

We had a great time bonding in this beautiful home!

Thank you so much for letting us borrow your beautiful home for our spring break family vacation. Our family enjoyed sipping on tea while looking at the beautiful view from your home. Our kids enjoyed all the toys and games you had for them to use. We had a great time bonding in this beautiful home. The privacy we got was nothing short of perfect. Thank you for being so accommodating. I hope we can come back for a summer trip. Lots of love from all of us!

It couldn’t have been a more perfect venue

Your home is amazing! Came here for family vacation that turned ito a wedding and it couldn’t have been a more perfect venue. Family from Washington, California and Arizona came out to a snowfall wedding against the lake backdrop with a newly renovated home—what a treat! Your home had everything we needed, all the amenities of a hotel and ample parking. Thank you for sharing your home with us, we couldn’t ask for better hospitality!

If you’re able to book this - 100% recommend!

Brian & Leslie are such amazing hosts. Not only is their home beautiful and wonderfully prepared for home cooking and outdoor adventure, their guide to the local area and their thoughtfulness in your personal experience is outstanding! We were going to arrive during an ice storm and so they moved around their schedule to make our check-in time earlier pro-actively! Who does that! We had home-cooked meals every day with a wonderfully organized kitchen, and game nights every night. Their home also has such a bright energy that our entire group felt like it was the best Airbnb and vacation we have ever had. As we headed out, we discussed how magical this trip has been. There could have been no better way to bring in the New Year! If you’re able to book this - 100% recommend! We’re definitely planning a summertime trip back.

What a beautiful home and gorgeous setting this is!

Our family is from all over the Seattle area, but Chris and I live in Singapore. After two years of not being able to come home, we finally made it back for the holidays! What a beautiful home and gorgeous setting this is! We are truly blessed to spend time at this home, and we cannot wait to experience this again during the warm summer months! We will definitely be back. Thank you Brian and Leslie for the hospitality! And thank you Blue Heron Lakehouse for the memories!

The house was a perfect retreat for our conference!

Brian and Leslie were very accommodating and great hosts. Myself and two other adult chaperones brought 6 students to the house for a retreat while attending a virtual conference. The property had plenty of space for us to all spread out and work during the days. At night we had a wonderful time doing a virtual cooking class in the large kitchen, hanging out around the firepit, and watching movies in the living room. It was a wonderful, relaxing experience all around!
