About The Owner

We are a family of 4. My husband grew up on the Eastside. We met in Seattle and have lived on the eastside since 1994.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2010

Why The Owner chose Bellevue

The view and the location---Simply the best!! A separate cottage in a beautiful setting with views of Lake Washington, and close to the Bellevue Square Mall, Factoria Mall, and many wonderful restaurants.

What makes this cottage unique

Location that's convenient to everything ....along with quiet & peaceful views of Lake Washington. Beautiful water view and private, in a beautiful area, forested yet so close to the big city! Waterfront beach & parks are 1/3-1/2 mile, kayaks and canoes can be rented at Enatai waterfront park (1/3 mile away)!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have traveled the world staying in many different accomodations and this rates up near the top of the list!! Thank you for making such an inviting, comfortable and well-equiped spot for weary travelers. We have our daughter and her family nearby and it was wonderful to have such a perfect retreat so close to them. We sure hope to be able to stay here again!

Quiet and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Waterfront View Cottage for 3 days while visiting for our son's wedding. We were so impressed with the location so near the water. The neighborhood was quiet and the cottage itself had everything we needed. We appreciated the breakfast food provided, as well as the wine and chocolate. We would certainly stay here again when we return to this area.

Our Bellevue lake cottage

  • 5 of 5

Karin and Randy thought of everything. Our stay was one of the most comfortable stays ever. I do not easily give a 5 star rating, but, this was tremendous. Right down to the breakfast fixings and wine etc. etc. provided us, we felt like we never left home (Connecticut). 4 thumbs up from Kathy and I.

Perfect business stay

  • 5 of 5

I had to work in nearby downtown Bellevue and found the Bellevue Cottage a great business option compared to a hotel. Just a short 5 minute drive or 40 minute walk to downtown Bellevue. The owner Karin was very responsive and added her own personal touches like a small welcome gift basket and had the porch light on for my evening arrival. Sheets, towels and beds were all high end, cottage was clean, Wifi was fast, all adding up to an enjoyable and comfortable stay. Not to forget the peaceful and serene view of Lake Washington from the living room.

For the foodies, I recommend the nearby Chase's Pancake Corral for a tasty diner breakfast.
