Wonderfully relaxing and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. It's tucked back at the end of the road surrounded by trees in the front that block most of the noise, you hardly know how close you are to town. The property is beautifully landscaped for a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday. Loved feeding the goats and watching them play in the mornings while enjoying a cup of coffee on the back deck. So much space the 6 of us were comfortable and didn't feel like we were on top of one another like we would in a hotel. The guys had room outside to work on my son's truck and have that father son time while us girls could relax. With this house only 30 minutes from the airport and 45 minutes from downtown Seattle it was very easy to get to and not a bad trip to go into Seattle to see all the great things the city has to offer. Will definitely recommend this stay to all out friends traveling this way and hope to stay again sometime.

Beautiful and quiet, large home.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property! Secluded, quiet, private. Lovely deck to soak up fleeting morning sunshine while you sip your coffee. Comfortable home with everything anyone could need -- fully stocked kitchen, big screen TV, jacuzzi tub. Goats were friendly and fun to watch playing queen-of-the-mountain. I'm thrilled to find such a great place near my family. I look forward to staying again soon.
