About the Property
House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)
Welcome to your home away from home!
Experience the Puget Sound the way it was meant to be experienced. Privacy and romance of a vacation rental bordering a large greenbelt with a lake. Relax in this serene retreat with nature at your back door yet with the convenience of city living in the heart of Kirkland on the Eastside of Seattle. You’ll get to enjoy your own private space with a bath, bedroom, living area and kitchen in a cottage designed with your comfort and privacy in mind.
Our home away from home is newly furnished and decorated and has proven itself valuable for traveling business, academic & medical professionals, short-term/transitional Seattle stays, vacationers and single or double occupancy on a nightly/weekly basis while visiting friends and family.
Your accommodations include one bedroom with queen-size bed, full bathroom. You have your own kitchen and dining area complete with oven, refrigerator and cooking utensils. Relax on the deck with protected wetlands as your scenery. Cable TV, and WIFI services are available.
After many years living in Seattle, we continue to be awed by the beauty of this neighborhood, its proximity to nature, and its breathtaking sunsets. So, pour a glass of wine, come relax outdoors on the deck, and watch the sun slip behind the beautiful green belt as it illuminates the sky.
DISCLAIMER: For the sake of clarity, please note that we are NOT a hotel. If you like fresh towels every day and need this kind of service frequently we suggest considering a stay in a hotel. We value your privacy and we value ours. We offer a great place at a great price so you can have privacy and a similar experience of living in your own private residence. Along with that comes the responsibility of taking care of your own basic needs. If during your stay you need something reasonable ask and we will do our best to accommodate you. However we have full time jobs and use the income from our rental to subsidize our mortgage, so are not available at all times. We appreciate your patronage and understanding.
Forbes Lake Cottage offers short driving distances of less than 15 minutes to Lake Washington, downtown Bellevue, Microsoft campus, parks and river trails! Want to go shopping or eat out? We are 5 minutes away from I-405 and close to various shopping/restaurant options on the water.
Rates are $59 a night for a two night minimum. For extended stays please contact us for rates. Prices do not include applicable sales tax of 9.5%. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Cash or Money Orders. A $30.00 cleaning fee is required.

About the owner: I'm excited about meeting new people and creating new friendships with travelers that will stay with us.
Why the Owner Chose North Rose Hill, Kirkland, WA, USA:
I am at the heart of Kirkland, just 5 to 15 minutes away from the Kirkland Waterfront, Seattle and much of the surrounding area. This location offers access to all kinds of shopping experiences, outdoor experiences, culinary experiences and so much more. With the rental bordering on protected land and a small lake, we have the convenience of quick access to surrounding areas with the private feel of being out in the countryside.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I often sit on our back deck and watch the sun rise or set over Lake Forbes. Being close to shopping, downtown Kirkland, Microsoft, Seattle, and various other places is convenient, but often you need to sacrifice privacy to have these. Our rental gives the best of both worlds. We even get to see the occasional deer, and often see a variety of birds and other wildlife on our property. It is serene, peaceful and practical all in one.
