Issaquah house description
Our home sits on top of one of the 3 mountains that makeup the Issaquah Alps and is very private and serene yet we’re only 10 minutes from the town of Issaquah with everything you’d want and only 30 minutes from the heart of Seattle with its array of “life”. Sitting on the edge of the Pacific/Puget Sound, trips to the islands via ferry, Skiing (both downhill and x-country) only 30 minutes away, hiking everywhere and right on our hill, biking, boating…it’s endless as to outdoor pursuits in the Seattle area. Nightlife and culture abound in Seattle, Bellevue, and even Issaquah.
If you haven’t been to the Pacific Northwest to enjoy the beauty we offer, you should come visit.
Our home is 2500 sq. ft., our family home since we built it new so obviously we love it! We have large decks for seating, landscaped yards, we're on the edge of the forest and our resident raccoon may even pay you a visit on his way back and forth to “work”. Deer often bed down out back or stop by for a visit. The configuration of our home is: Master bedroom, with private bath, Guest Bedroom (Queen Bed), Sleeping Loft with pull out double bed, newly remodeled bathroom is shared between loft & guest room, & a soaking tub with view into woods is perfect for after your hike. ½ bath for the downstairs. Our kitchen is set to COOK…both Chuck and I love to cook and we think it’s the best. It opens into our family room with gas fireplace and our dining room opens into our large living room with fireplace as well. Our home is 2 levels with sleeping upstairs. French doors lead from dining room to deck and from family room to deck. Enjoy 3 eating locations outside or walk across our bridge to the path in the woods.

Beautiful home away from home!
Beautiful home away from home!
We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home during our two week visit to Seattle. The house is private and secure, with the most amazing garden. Jill and Chuck left detailed instructions and their communication with us prior to our visit was excellent. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with everything that was needed. We had family dinners on the outside deck overlooking the stunning garden. We would highly recommend this home to fellow travellers.

This was a wonderful place to stay, the owner was very professional about arranging things. It was very private, you feel like you are in your own little, peaceful world. I appreciated how I knew the owners were available for communication, if I had needed them, but at the same time we were left in solitude, which we needed. My family found the garden to be particularly special, and the adults have been all over the world, so I feel like that's saying a lot about a garden. The owners kept a home like atmosphere, and had put effort and attention into the details. I wish I could have stayed longer, playing in the garden with my babies was a beautiful dream. I don't typically review things, but this place was so refreshingly family friendly, and I wanted the owners to know I felt they had created something magical.

Owner response: Thank you so much Elizabeth for sharing your thoughts on our home. It means so much to know that people enjoy our work...and my flowers! I hope you come back to the Northwest again some day and for sure, look us up. Our best to all of you in your family. Jill & Chuck
Wonderful, restful and peacfeul stay!
Wonderful, restful and peacfeul stay!
My husband & I stayed here in August 2011 while we were in Seattle to have my wisdom teeth extracted. This house was perfect: clean, quiet and secluded, yet just a quick drive from stores, etc. The house feels like home, not just a vacation rental. Jill was a great hostess and quick to respond to my questions. I enjoyed the soaking tub with views of the beautiful backyard while I recouped! We spent alot of time chilling on the deck. The bed was comfortable, master shower powerful and the stocked kitchen had everything we needed.

About the owner: Chuck and I have elected to travel widely during our retirement years and realized we're "never" home. We wanted to share our home and space with folks looking to come to the Pacific Northwest. A day trip to Mount Rainier that you see from our hill or a quick run to Leavenworth that we do to ski or golf made us think that we are "in the perfect location". We live in a safe and secure area called HIGH VALLEY yet we can't see any homes & we feel like we live in the national park.
