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.

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

Perfect spot to relax with family
The cottage was perfect for our family, spacious, clean, nicely decorated, and of course right on the water! Our host, Don couldn't have been more welcoming, and we were happy to enjoy this spot that is so near and dear to his heart. It seems like you're out in the wilderness when you step into the cottage, but Redmond is so close, it's very convenient. With only 30min drive to Seattle, this is the perfect spot to get away without really being too far! We'll be back for sure.
Beautiful house, very clean and well appointed with a gorgeous view and lovely neighbor!
We stayed four nights for an early spring break in mid March. We were blessed with one warm and sunny day so got to enjoy sitting on the dock in the sunshine as well as using the deck and BBQ grill. The view of the lake is spectacular at all times of the day with it peaceful in the morning and warm and inviting in the late afternoon. The house is clean and roomy with plenty of kitchen items for cooking and entertaining if you wanted to. Easy to find shopping and access to the Redmond area and to Seattle as well. We will definitely stay again.
It's Like Home
We think this is our eighth stay at the cottage on Lake Sammamish. It is perfect for us, close to our daughter and her family, but our own place while we visit, a magnificent lake view, private and yet right on a jogging/walkimg/biking trail.
Beautiful home and lake setting!
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!
Relaxing with fantastic view
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, perfect location, wonderful host!
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!
