About Karin Peterson

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.

Karin Peterson purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Karin Peterson chose West 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, including capturing an eagle flying overhead, and paddle boarders and sailers catching a wave, boaters and yachts from floating by. 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!

Flawless in Seattle

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot - a quick trip to Downtown Seattle, but so nice to be out of the city in a cozy cottage with a beautiful view! Karin and Randy were great hosts! They truly thought of everything with many thoughtful details such as being greeted with a bottle of wine and chocolate, and having the makings for our first breakfast if we needed it. They greeted us our first day to make sure everything was okay and that we didn't need anything. They were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. communication was great before and during our stay. I always got a quick response to my questions. The cottage itself was clean and cozy and had all the creature comforts you could want, including fluffy bathrobes! They had lots of information about the area as well, such as sights to see and their favorite restaurants, which was really helpful. To summarize it was a perfect location with wonderful hosts. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone without reservation! Thanks for a great stay!!

cozy and welcoming

The cottage has a lovely view and is very well appointed and comfortable. The hosts are incredibly helpful and friendly, and there were several welcoming treats in the kitchen to welcome us to this home. We have a wonderful time and hope to return someday.

Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We are VRBO owners ourselves, so we can be critical of how a rental is handled. Let me say that Karin and Randy know how to do it right! From the time you open the door you see what great care and preparation they have made for a guest arrival.

The view of Lake Washington is incredible and the neighborhood is very safe and convenient to everything.

Karin and Randy have done it RIGHT!!
