About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom +, Office, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3) near downtown Redmond

Beautifully designed home with excellent living space. This new construction cottage boasts incredible lake views, quality workmanship, and designer touches throughout.

As you walk into the home through the large covered deck, you will notice the high ceilings, the open floor plan and enticing water views through the large windows facing the lake. This home sits behind the main house on Lake Sammamish just down the hill from Microsoft and easy access to the freeways into Seattle.

Kitchen: all high end appliances, Thermador and Dacor. Farmhouse sink with disposal, ice and water dispensing refrigerator, 2' countertops, bright light floods in from the double hung windows and double glass doors. This kitchen is equiped with everything you will need plus more. A large table with 6 chairs. Enjoy lake views from every spot in the kitchen and family room.

Living room: Open and airy 20 foot ceilings, large hanging fan with light dimmer, leather couches, and large cable TV and video/dvd library for your entertainment. Large windows that give you incredible views from every vantage point in the room.

Bathroom: custom tiled shower/tub with opening window, medicine cabinet, framed mirror, built in linen shelving, and hooks for towels and robes.

Additional 'get ready' area: just outside the bathroom there is wonderful extra space with built in drawers, additional mirror, counter space, and more outlets.

Bedroom: large windows, hanging fan with light dimmer, pottery barn linens and furniture, large walk in closet with plenty of storage and shelving.

2nd Bedroom: very small-charming second room off the Master bdrm, with lots of natural light. This room has a twin bed with PBTeen bedding and lots of shelving and hooks for your belongings. You do have to walk through the master to access this bedroom.

**There is a 700 sq area that has 4 twin beds and 1 full bed. This area is not part of the normal rental as there is a steep and dangerous ladder accessing it. It is important that young children do not access this area. If you would like to use this extra space the additional rent charge is $700 per month and/or $200 per week. No parties. Please discuss this option with the owners.

Laundry/pantry room: separate room holds a full size washer and dryer, with hooks and many shelves and lots of storage space.

Office nook: antique large wood desk looks out over the patio and onto the lake view.

2 bikes! With helmets and pump come with your rental. Please let the owners know if you want to take advantage of this so they can have them ready for you.

Property: 1/3 acre with two homes sitting on it. The cottage sits above/behind the waterfront home with excellent views of the lake and wildlife. Bald eagles are a common site.

About Charlotte Baker

We are a family of 4. Husband, myself, (the homemaker), and a College age daughter (U of AZ) and High School age son, and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. We are a active family and we the outdoors. Both my husband and myself grew up on the water and feel blessed to be able to be close to it.

Charlotte Baker purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Charlotte Baker chose Redmond

We love the lake and the views. The bike trails, restaurants, outdoors are all incredible.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the beauty the lake offers, with the color the sky changes over the water from morning to sunset, the view of the crew teams racing by, and the incredible changes of the 4 seasons. We also benefit from the Marymoore trail that hooks into the BurkeGilman trail right out our door. We often bike down to Redmond Town Center and go out to dinner, shop or catch the Saturday open market (spring through fall), or bike further to Woodinville Tully's coffee, St. Michelle or Columbia Wineries, or the Red Hook Brewery and watch the hot air balloons or catch a concert on the lawn of the St. Michelle Winery. The ride to all these locations is 100% on the bike trails from door to door.

Cannot be better!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay with Charlotte! The place was fantastic and functionally furnished with everything we needed. The view of Lake Sammamish was beautiful even on a rainy day. She gave us lots of privacy, but was instantly available when we needed anything. When we return to the area, we won't try to rent from anyone else. And did I mention how comfortable her "cottage" was? She also provides everything we needed to be "home" comfortably. We just needed to show up!

Owner's Response: We very much enjoy having you stay in our rentals. We are happy you got to experience the "cottage" home this time. Thank you for your kind words. We hope your travels back home were good. We would love to have you stay again. Thank you!

Wonderful Cottage with a View!

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed living here this summer and last. This has become our home away from home! The unit is very well equipped and the owners are wonderfully accommodating and helpful. If there is anything you need, they go out of their way to provide it. We love the wonderful kitchen and there is plenty of room to entertain guests.

We have especially enjoyed the large, covered terrace with wonderful views of beautiful Lake Sammamish. This location works perfectly for us as our family lives nearby. We are walking distance to a lovely lakefront park with swimming area and dock which our grandkids love. We would highly recommend this home and we will definitely be coming back!
