About the owner: We have lived in Bellevue for 20 years. It is a wonderful place that has gone through tremendous growth. It has finally become a true Northwest modern city with lively downtown.
Why the Owner Chose Bellevue: We live in a beautiful forested area that feels like a true Northwest with large trees and partial view of lake Washington. The cottage is located on our property. It's located in the center of it all, yet it is tucked away to ensure complete privacy with everything right around it.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: You are in downtown Bellevue, yet it feels like you are vacationing in some remote Northwest island cabin. You get to relax and walk around the nearby parks yet, if you want to walk 20 minutes you are in the heart of downtown Bellevue. By car, everything is right next to you. Downtown Bellevue is 5 minutes, downtown Seattle is 15 minutes.
