Kirkland house description

Lake Forbes Cottage

Welcome to your home away from home!

It doesn't get any better than this. Experience the Puget Sound the way it was meant to be experienced. Get the luxury and amenities you'd get at a hotel with all the convenience, privacy, space and romance of a vacation rental bordering a large greenbelt with a lake. Relax in this serene retreat with nature at your back door yet with the convenience of city living in the heart of Kirkland on the Eastside of Seattle. You’ll get to enjoy your own private space with a bath, bedroom, living area and kitchen in a cottage designed with your comfort and privacy in mind.

Our home away from home is newly furnished and decorated and has proven itself valuable for traveling business, academic & medical professionals, short-term/transitional Seattle stays, vacationers and single or double occupancy on a nightly/weekly basis while visiting friends and family.

If you’re traveling from Germany, let us assure you that you will enjoy your stay. We speak fluent German, and are more than happy to make this an experience you won’t forget.

Your accommodations include one bedroom with queen-size bed, full bathroom supplied with refreshing body and hair care goodies for use during your stay. You have your own kitchen and dining area complete with oven, refrigerator and cooking utensils. Relax on the deck with protected wetlands and a quaint lake as your scenery. Cable TV, wireless Internet and print/fax services are available as needed.

After many years living in Seattle, we continue to be awed by the beauty of this neighborhood, its proximity to nature, and its breathtaking sunsets. So, pour a glass of wine, come relax outdoors on the deck, and watch the sun slip behind the lake and trees as it illuminates the sky.

Forbes Lake Cottage offers short driving distances of less than 15 minutes to Lake Washington, downtown Bellevue, Microsoft campus, parks and river trails! Want to go shopping or eat out? We are 5 minutes away from I-405 and close to various shopping/restaurant options on the water.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: My wife Melissa and myself (Stefan) are excited about meeting new people and creating new friendships with travelers that will stay with us. We love hosting people and making sure they have a wonderful experience travelling.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kirkland:
                  We are at the heart of Kirkland, just 5 to 15 minutes away from the Kirkland Waterfront, Seattle and much of the surrounding area. This location offers access to all kinds of shopping experiences, outdoor experiences, culinary experiences and so much more. With the rental bordering on protected land and a small lake, we have the convenience of quick access to surrounding areas with the private feel of being out in the countryside.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We often sit on our back deck and watch the sun rise or set over Lake Forbes. Being close to shopping, downtown Kirkland, Microsoft, Seattle, and various other places is convenient, but often you need to sacrifice privacy to have these. Our rental gives the best of both worlds. We even get to see the occasional deer, and often see a variety of birds and other wildlife on and in the lake in front of our property. It is serene, peaceful and practical all in one.
