About the property

4Br Incl Loft, 2.5BA, 7 Beds, (1King 3 Queens 2 twins or 1 King 2 queens 4 twns)


City And Lush Forest Living!!! (SCROLL DOWN FOR CALENDAR) -- Ten Mins/Miles due North of Space Needle and the downtown core. This is a perfect 2000 square foot lodge set on a secluded half acre, dashed with a magical mystical fairy-tale feel. Awesome for weddings/events and lodging as it's pin-drop-quiet (no barking dogs or road noise) augmented by the calm winds rustling through the towering trees nestled in the lush Lake Forest Park located on the outskirts of downtown Seattle. The lodge sports 7 beds: a sexy loft with a queen size bed and 2 twins (or put together for one queen), king size mahogany sleigh bed in the master bedroom, sleigh queen size in 2nd bedroom, bunk-beds 3rd bedroom. Keyless entry/Push-pad front door lock with code makes for simple entry and exit for large groups. Don't run out of hot shower water with large groups at the lodge, as this vacation spot has unlimited hot water so no running out with back to back showers. The back yard is entirely fenced in for dogs and small kids to roam freely. All in all this is a woodsy camp ground fresh forest air fantasy come true.

Paradise on Earth, Lord of the Rings trees

  • 5 of 5

If you must have stainless steel and granite counter tops the lodge is not for you. Most people might comment on the ample amount of bedding or the incredible amount of exterior glass ( 3 glass French doors, a glass slider, picture window, glass block inserts, a sky-lite twice as big as any I've ever seen in a house and two two-story glass walls). But for me the highlight was the PRIVACY. You can see the roofs of nearby houses over the privacy fence only if you stand in just the right spot on the second floor. The fully fenced back yard was paradise-on-earth for our dog. And with the 100 foot trees, I half expected Gandolf to step out of Lord of the Rings and come striding up the hill to join me on the back deck. The location couldn't have been better with a 10 minute walk to the shopping center to meet all your needs with restaurants, a grocery store, and much more.

For dog walkers, there are two nice parks (Animal Park and Blue Heron Park) less than 1/2 mile away. Both have doggie bag dispensers and waste cans. There is also a 20+ mile asphalt walkway within 1/2 a mile.

My greatest fear is that my review might cause the lodge to already be rented should we want it next year. We spent two months in the lodge and I can't imagine a better situation.

House Needs to be Maintained

  • 1 of 5

I will start with the positive: the area is very nice, the trees in the backyard are pleasant, the piano was a nice addition. However, the house is not well maintained. The carpets, couch and rugs are very old and dirty. The bedding is all very old as well. The mattress pads were either stained or missing altogether. The fireplace did not work. They sent someone to fix it, but he was unable to do so. We also showed the handyman several other things that needed repair. He said he would come back, but did not. The owners offered to have the carpets and couch cleaned while we were there, but we did not want the interruption. The bathroom fixtures were lose. The master toilet seat slid to one side upon sitting. The dishes are all chipped. I could go on. We tried to get out of our contract and move to a hotel. The owners would not let us out of the contract unless the place was "unliveable". In my humble opinion, it was. Would not stay there again. We use VRBO to have an experience more pleasant than a hotel.

Gallagher Family

We've stayed here now a second time and can't say enough good things about the lodge. It's got great character. The magnificent trees and the pine forest scent are surprisingly refreshing. And so quiet, very serene. No barking dogs or street traffic. The constant insta-hot water for the showers was really helpful as we didn't run out of shower water like we have in other locations. The beds were very comfortable and the general ambiance of the lodge was amazing, especially the river rock fireplace and floor to ceiling windows. With DT Seattle so close by, I couldn't ask for a better Seattle experience. I recommend this to anyone really wanting to get away from it all and live in a beautiful home and forest setting for their upcoming vacation.

Nebraska Family

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience at the Lodge in Lake Forest Park. It was inviting and comfortable for our family of 5. Beautiful setting and a unique property. The kitchen was fairly well-equipped and having unlimited hot water was the best. All the various light switches were pretty confusing at first, but we managed to figure them out since many were marked. I thought the kitchen could use a little more organization - there were parts of small appliances in one cabinet that would have been hard to put together if I'd needed to use them. We bought ice because the refrigerator ice maker hadn't made any when we were setting up for a meal. Also, I walked through several cobwebs in doorways when we first got there so I wondered if it actually had been cleaned just prior to our stay.

But overall, it was a wonderful place to stay and we definitely would seek to stay there again!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lodge. It was exactly as described and there were no disappointments from this group of four. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well supplied with dishes, utensils, cookware etc. We found the back deck a wonderful place to sit and relax after we'd finished our golf rounds.

Thanks Dave for the great communication and clear instructions on accessing the lodge.

I would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the area.
