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.

Beauty and a View

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful apartment for a month and could have stayed longer! As soon as you enter you feel as if you are being welcomed home. Everything in the apartment is pleasing to the eye, the furniture is all about comfort, the bed provides a peaceful nights sleep, and the kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook and bake, if you so desire. You have a view of the lake and can see crew teams out practicing, people water skiing and on paddle boards, eagles flying over and around the lake. I loved waking up in the morning, going to the kitchen to make coffee and just look at the water. You are within walking distance of Idylwood Park, a great place for children to play and swim in the lake.

Charlotte and her husband are the sweetest and they are so helpful, ready with an answer if you have any questions. It was very reassuring knowing they were right there to help if we needed anything.

I will, with no hesitation, recommend this property.

A dream vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Charlotte and Randy were incredible hosts. They did everything to make me feel welcome and comfortable during my stay. Their property was clean, fully stocked, and has an amazing view of West Lake Sammamish. I spent three months here and am already missing this “home away from home”. Look no further for a cozy retreat for your next vacation in the Seattle area.

Wonderfully Refreshing

  • 5 of 5

The HomeAway rental on Lake Sammamish went above and beyond our expectations. The owners were attentive and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. The home is perfectly outfitted, with every detail considered and attended to. We could not have been more pleased and will surely return there in the future!

Wonderful lake apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable apartment that is well stocked and is nicely decorated. It has a wonderful view of the lake, with lake access as well. The owner's are a lovely couple and are very accommodating. My friend's and I had an awesome stay. I've stayed here many times and have enjoyed it every time. Redmond is a quaint town with a fun farmer's market on Saturday mornings.
