What an incredible retreat you have here on Lake Sammamish!

We couldn’t have enjoyed our stay more. The beautifully manicured gardens and perfectly attended home made our two weeks here an absolute delight. Thank you for all your attention to detail, from helping us find our wonderful chef Mat, to waiting until 10 p.m. for our arrival. We so appreciate your thoughtfulness. We hope to be back again!

Our Stay was an Oasis for our Family!

We were SO THRILLED that we could get into your home for this special time with our family. Thank you SO MUCH! Our stay was an “oasis” for our family, especially during Covid and with my sister undergoing cancer treatments. We especially enjoyed renting e-bikes—which we could all enjoy—using the kayaks, and just relaxing at all the great spots on the property. Short drives to great restaurants and shopping. All the wildlife, from eagles, heron, 2 adult bunnies and a baby, mountains jays at the feeder! And those special chocolate-chip cookies you made were such a special touch. Again, thank you!

This house was a dream!

We hadn’t seen our families in months, and this was the perfect house to hunker down in during Covid. The views were amazing, the lake so refreshing, and the house couldn’t be more homey. Thank you Brian and Leslie, please invite us back!

We had so much fun!

We are frequent travelers and this has been one of our favorites. What a respite from a crazy world—we wish we could stay all summer. Thanks from all of us, and we will be back!

A beautiful home with amazing views!

We were three business travelers attending a Microsoft event. The MS campus is 10 minutes away, and this home a perfect respite from several long days with the Microsoft team. I highly recommend this home for both business and holiday travels. It's the perfect location to stay when doing business with Microsoft. We'll be back for sure!

Brian and Leslie were exceptional hosts!

Brian and Leslie were exceptional hosts. I booked this house for Christmas with my family (who flew into town). Brian and Leslie put together wonderful little touches for us including: a Christmas tree, cribs for our infants, and a baby gate for the stairs. This was in addition to all of the wonderful amenities they had at their house. This is a beautiful lakefront house that I would definitely recommend to other travelers/vacationers. We hope to book this house again the next time our family is in town.

This is a stunningly beautiful and comfortable property.

It’s great for large family/friend groups, but blissful for couples as well. Plenty of spots to gather, or nest with a book. The vista is stunning, regardless of weather. We’re so sad to leave this wonderful house, but so thankful for the Lake Sammamish experience, which included two canoe explorations, one late-night lake swim and—best of all—eagle sightings! We were treated to the sight of 2 bald eagles soaring over the lake and diving for fish.

Awesome play to stay!

Wow - 10 stars! This property is awesome. The lake view unbeatable. My family was very impressed and happy with the accommodation. Brian was very nice and easy to work with. Thanks for letting us stay in your home.

Your lake house was absolutely amazing!

It was so comfy and instantly felt like a home away from home. With all of us having little ones, going really far out of town was not a great option. So your place was perfect for us. It seemed like everything we forgot, you guys had! Dinners out on the patio, and wine after the kiddos went down for bed, we couldn’t have asked for a better week. Thank you again for sharing your home with our families!
