3360 sq. ft. house in old growth forest with trails. Access to Seattle/Bellevue
Perfect for large groups/multiple families with 3 full master suites and 2 full kitchens!
This house offers the best of both worlds: literally minutes from charming Olde Town Issaquah, the freeway and the conveniences of urban life, yet tucked against a mountainside and surrounded by a canopy of old growth forest trees and trails.
It's also close to Bellevue, Seattle and Snoqualmie Pass, shopping, live theater and restaurants. Well stocked kitchen, roomy living rooms! The lower level is ADA accessible throughout.
***An update to the pictures includes a larger table upstairs and a second flat screen in the living room downstairs.
This 3,300 sq ft house is unique with 3 custom built master suits, all including neo-angled tubs with waterfall faucets. Each space was artistically created and you might have a hard time choosing between them!
You'll find special pieces throughout, including up-cycled remodels, high-end kitchen updates and antique built-ins from local lakefront mansions.
From the floor plan to the lighting and decor, we hope you find this space cozy and inviting.
Booked as the whole house, you'll have 2 full kitchens, 2 flat screen TVs, 2 living rooms for gathering and relaxing, and 2 washer/dryer sets. Multiple master suites means everyone can relax in their own private space. This is ideal for large groups or families!
Enjoy cooking in our updated kitchen upstairs. Having the appliances (two ovens upstairs and one down), knives, serving bowls, and some spices in the pantry will make your stay easy and comfortable.
House in the Woods has in-floor geothermal radiant heating and cooling system and distilled water straight from the pigots at the kitchen sinks and several bathroom sinks.
Off the upstairs kitchen is a large deck with a grill and bench seating for summer guests.
In the lower level, you'll find up-cycled finishes, exposed beams, and interior brick accent walls.
The upstairs master has a king bed and walk in closet that leads to the master bath. In addition to queen/double beds, the downstairs masters have charming twin bed nooks and soothing dimmable lights throughout. The other lower level room is a "den" with double bed (no attached bath or closet). It has glass French doors on two walls with stained glass accents, and thermal room-darkening curtains for privacy.
The LOWER unit is ADA accessible:
- paved parking is level with front door
- wide hallways and doors
- roll-in shower
- seats in showers
The home is nestled in the trees right along Hwy 900, a high traffic road between Issaquah and Renton. Expect to hear cars and trucks pass by day and night from inside, but also enjoy the sights and sounds of mother nature all around you. See photos for proximity to the street.
Being on Hwy 900 means you won't spend extra time driving through neighborhoods or city streets to get to your destination. From the house, zip right onto this scenic road and hit the freeway, town or trailheads within minutes. Note that commute hours in the morning and late afternoon create heavy traffic on this road, I-90, and main roads in Issaquah, so plan accordingly.
Park your boat in the open space next to the house!
Lake Samammish - 5 minutes (right in Issaquah)
Lake Washington - 15 minutes (boat to Seattle's Lake Union and even the Ballard Locks)
Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy miles of cycling, running, fishing, downhill biking, destination hiking and even paragliding just down the road. There are also two ski resorts with winter and summer activities less than an hour away. Downtown Issaquah has a charming shopping area called Gilman Village as well as restaurants and local shops along Front Street.
House in the Woods was remodeled to be booked as one large house, OR as two separate and private units on each level. We are also listed on Airbnb. Fastest way to find them is an Internet search for:
"House in the Woods (upper unit) Issaquah"
"House in the Woods (lower unit) Issaquah"
If you're sensitive to road noise, note that the upper unit's wall-to-wall windows and open floor plan do make it easier to hear the cars/trucks. Although you still hear traffic in the lower unit, it is quieter.
Contact me if you'd like to add more people than is allowed.

- Easy drive to Seattle, Redmond or Bellevue.
- Convenient to Costco HQ, Seimens, OSI/Spacelabs, T-Mobile and Microsoft.

Private property, no visible neighbors, surrounded by forest trees and landscaping. The house is set behind a line of trees just off Hwy 900 (Issaquah Renton Rd), which is a high-traffic, two-lane highway, especially busy during commute hours. See photos.

Convenient to what we needed
Great place. Upstairs unit was roomy enough for all 15 of our family members to have meals together. Conveniently located to airport, sight seeing in Seattle and our son's wedding venue at Trinity Tree Farm. Woodsy area just added to the charm. Would stay again.
Such a unique and beautiful home!
Great place for a large group
Best of Both Worlds
We chose this house to host some out of town friends for my 30th birthday and it was excellent. We were looking for somewhere in a woodsy area but still close to Seattle and the location couldn't have been more perfect (30 mins from downtown, less from SeaTac). Just off of the highway, but far enough in to not be bothered by it, the house is surrounded by old growth trees and ferns with a great fire pit in the back. We lucked out with a dry weekend in November and were able to put the fire pit to use (bring your own wood!). The house itself is extremely comfortable with an incredible kitchen on the top floor that features a really nice range so we were able to easily prepare meals for a dozen people or so. Both living spaces upstairs and downstairs are roomy yet cozy with plenty of space for board games or hanging out. Our bed in the master bedroom was extremely comfortable, making it hard to get up to go hiking on Saturday. Speaking of which there are several good trails just across the street from the house. Colleen, the owner, was very helpful and great with communication, making it as easy and pleasant as possible for us. It's worth noting that the hot tub in the photos does not work but also is not listed on the page. A negligible problem for an otherwise perfect weekend.
We had a great stay. Thanks so much Colleen!
Issaquah is dubbed Trailhead City, with miles of interconnected trails and destination hikes through dense forests. Old Town Issaquah's Front Street is a charming destination featuring restaurants, galleries, boutiques, a century old meat market, parks and plenty of history. There is often a wine/art walk, free concert or festival during summer months.
