Walk out the French doors, on to a deck that looks out over beauty of Lake McDonald. The 4+ person hot tub on the lower lake is perfect for relaxing those fun filled muscles.

This wonderful vacation location is ideally located just 25 minutes from Seattle, 6 miles southwest of Issaquah, and just east of Renton, in the foothills of the Issaquah Alps (Tiger, Cougar and Squak Mountains.

Sleeping Accommodations
The cottage has one master bedroom with king-size bed. A comfortable finished basement with lake front views and direct access to the lower deck and hot tub has a queen size bed. The living room offers a very comfortable full sized hide-a-bed. The luxurious beds and tranquil silence ensure restful nights, from which you will wake to stunning views of the lake and wildlife.
A kitchen with a view
An open floor plan between the living room and kitchen provide for great place for cooking and socializing. A gas BBQ is located just outside on the deck overlooking the lake.

The downstairs bedroom (queen size bed) is a daylight basement that has been creatively finished, incorporating recycled material where possible. Comfy throw rugs decorate the original painted concrete floors providing an artistic flair to this lake view space (see picture)

Amenities
The cottage sits on the shores of the lake, away from the road, providing a secure and secluded atmosphere. There is an upper deck, right off the living room and kitchen with BBQ and comfortable outdoor furniture and table for 4. The lower deck hosts a relaxing hot tub. Beyond the lower deck spreads the grassy yard….then the LAKE. Wade from the yard directly into the clean water of Lake McDonald.

Lake McDonald is an electric motor boat only lake. Therefore, it’s quite and safe to swim and play in. Being a triathlete myself, this lake is a perfect place to train! Use of an electric motor for the boat can be arranged upon request for a small fee of $50.
As a cyclist, this location lies on some of the best roads the Seattle region has to offer….start your ride from May Valley and go anywhere!
