Great family reunion!
Our granddaughter was in the national girls under-fourteen soccer tournament in Kirkland, so we decided to rent this lake house for a week and invite our other grandchildren for a mini family reunion. We were six adults and six teenagers. What a great time we had!
The house had good WiFi and a Sonos sound system - great assets when you have teenagers. But the lake was the main attraction and they spent most of their time in the water. The kayak was very popular, but the canoe was a more of a challenge and created some very humorous moments. Two of the boys were fisherman and went out on the dock every day and caught fish every time - it was catch and release. They also managed to talk the neighbor into going tubing behind his ski boat. Next time I think I would splurge and rent a boat for the week. At invertsports.com I found a company that would put a ski boat in the lake for us - expensive and does require some advance planning. But enough about the teenagers.
The adults also thoroughly enjoyed the house with its decor, views of the lake, and relaxing patio. We did go sightseeing one day in Seattle, but after that we all agreed we just wanted to enjoy the lake house. If our granddaughter's team gets invited back next year, we will definitely rent this house again.

I wanted a nice lakefront property to host my family for my wedding weekend in Seattle - boy did I hit the jackpot. The listing was spot on, the property was clean and well-maintained! Brian (the owner) was trustworthy and very friendly to work with. He responded quickly and answered all my questions... I tend to be a bit OCD, so I had many :).
The house itself is amazing, very well stocked with all needed kitchen items, linens, two kitchens, etc. We did a lot of cooking during our week there and had all the necessary cookware, utensils etc.! The beds are incredibly comfortable and the view nothing short of spectacular. Another favorite was the whole house sound system that allowed us to listen to our favorite music anywhere on the property. The upstairs master was fantastic, and the additional upstairs bedroom provided a great quiet room for grandma when she wanted to get away from the family chaos! Amazing views of the lake from all over the house!
At this point I'm probably rambling but I just can't say enough about the experience. Excellent BBQ and hot tub as well! I will not hesitate to contact Brian again to rent this - thanks Brian for making my wedding experience that much more memorable! My family and I are truly grateful!

Wonderful week away with friends!
We visit Lake Sammamish every year from Australia and decided to rent our own place rather than staying with friends. It was an amazing week! We have even booked for 2015. The house has a beautiful view of the lake and the rooms and facilities are great. We spent most of our time outside by the pool house which has all the necessities, such as fridge, dishwasher, bar area and BBQ. The jacuzzi was great for relaxing after a full day of wake surfing on the lake. Brian, the owner, is chilled and very accommodating. If you are looking for a getaway with friends or family with kids, I would highly recommend it. Looking forward to our next visit!

Fantastic escape away from home.
We had a fantastic time here. The place is better than the pictures can represent. The view is gorgeous, the rooms are plentiful, and the amenities are bountiful. Comes with everything you could need. Don't need to bring anything. Exceptionally beautiful when the sun comes out and you can kayak out on the lake. It's secluded if you need privacy, but close enough to downtown Seattle if you want to get into trouble. It was very hard to leave this place and if we had to do it again, we wouldn't have had it any other way.
