Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms – Sleeping up to 6 people

Ideally situated on the eastern side of beautiful Lake Sammamish for fabulous sunsets and a tranquil setting, the Cottage on Sammamish is a newly renovated vacation venue. You feel rested and away from the busy world. Many people say it feels you are in a boat with the large windows facing and very near the lake.

Yet, just up the hill from the house (5 min drive) is a large Safeway and a multitude of convenient take-away shops and restaurants. 10 mins north and you are in the middle of Redmond (Microsoft town!) and the Redmond Town Centre. 10 mins south and you have Costco, Bestbuy, FredMeyer, etc on the pretty town of Issaquah. Both towns are linked with a pretty well preserved state trail that passes on the back of the Cottage, where you can walk, run or bike. The cottage also is close to Seattle itself. (20 miles - 30 min)

Come enjoy the Cottage on Sammamish for your next vacation or corporate visit to the Seattle area.

The Cottage has:

Over 900 square feet of living space

2 bedrooms – sleeping up to 6 people

Complete kitchen (we mean it!)

Living Room

Dining Room

Two sunny decks facing the lake

Shade deck on back of cottage surrounded by a relaxing, stunning garden area.

Lake Sammamish: The second largest lake in the Seattle area is 7 miles long, 1.5 miles wide with a maximum depth of 105 feet. Bordered on the north by Marymoor Park and Lake Sammamish Park on the south, this is an ideal water sports lake. You can use our 3 kayaks to explore the lake or even our paddle board while vacationing at Cottage on Sammamish.

About Gustavo Junqueira

'Life is an adventure' and 'dreams come true if you believe in them' I have been two sayings that have fit together in my life. One dream I had was to learn to speak Spanish. I had never studied Spanish in any

of my schooling, and while working and helping raise my family I never found or took the time. It was not until I was into my fifties that I took my first Spanish course, and after that it became somewhat of a 'hobby' and then a passion. This passion also spread to the Latin

culture and my desire to communicate and get to know people in Spanish speaking countries. The adventures started when I chose as my was of 'immersion' into the Spanish speaking world, to travel by land and mostly bus through Central America and extensively in Mexico. I did this by flying only one way to my chosen destination and returning to the boarder, usually in Tijuana/San Diego by bus or at times by boat. This included from Guatemala/El Salvador, Mexico city and my furthest destination was Nicaragua.

Another passion is for the outdoors and nature and that includes skiing in the Cascade Mountains in the winter.

Why Gustavo Junqueira chose Sammamish

I have lived on the east shore of Lake Sammamish for 40 years. My wife and I moved from the Philippine Islands after finishing my tour of duty in the Air Force, together with our 6 month old daughter, into a small cottage which is still a part of a now larger house that got added onto a room at a time over many years. The 'Cottage on Sammamish' is next door and from there guest can enjoy the same beautiful views, stunning sunsets and fun activities I've been having for decades

Guestbook comments from the manager

We definitely plan to use this wonderful home again. It is so peaceful and restful. The decor was beautiful and well done.

Relaxing with fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed early December to celebrate Christmas early and had a great time. This home is very peaceful and clean. It warms up very quickly, and the sunsets every night are amazing!

We walked on the trail right behind the house that goes around the lake, Marymoor Park has free bikes for King Co. residents.

We made Christmas cookies in the fully stocked kitchen.

The hot tub was easy to use and convenient.

A few even ventured out in a kayak and caught a few fish.

The owner, Don, was away but checked in.

Rafael, the manager, was very helpful esp. with our parking needs.

We would love to stay here again, but family is growing so may not be able to. Thanks for the great stay!

Beautiful home and lake setting!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this lake cottage to have a visit with my 2 adult children. It was beautiful and scenic, with a great kitchen for our use. The bedrooms were very nice. Don, the owner, answered my every question and was very hospitable. We had everything we needed, especially in the kitchen, with nearby shopping, and we had a memorable family visit. We hope to go back!

Beautiful home, perfect location, wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the lake house. Don was a fabulous host and walked us through everything we needed to know right from the beginning. The location was a perfect getaway and we even got to see some otters. I loved having my morning coffee on the covered balcony and opening the windows in the evening to listen to the calmness the lake had to offer. Next time we will definitely have to come in the summer so we can enjoy the water a little more, but even with rain we had a fabulous stay. Thank you Don for sharing your home with us. We loved hearing some of your stories on the history of the lake house and your travels! We will definitely stay here again in the future!

Great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! Don was incredible easy to get along with, and he was super responsive to anything that came up! He also met us outside at midnight, after our flight was delayed to make sure we found the place alright. Would absolutely come back and stay again! Thank you.

Quick weekend

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It's a beautiful and we will be sure to visit again this summer. Once we arrived we were welcomed with a tour of the home and learned that this house had more to offer than in the pictures. It was a great surprise as we typically would have more in our party than just the 2 of us like this visit. I would highly recommend this little cottage to a family up to 8. It's a great little place, but has plenty of space for everyone to enjoy it.
