Why Pam Slyter chose Lake Forest Park

This home is a true sanctuary; friendly but extremely private neighbors offer a safe quiet environment to read, sleep, stretch, welcome the dawn and celebrate the sunset

What makes this house unique

Watch the eagles soar; keep an eye out for occasional crew racers and the stray sailboat making it's way to the northern most tip of Lake Washington; watch the seaplanes heading out to the San Juan Islands

Impressive views, great lighting, very clean and comfortable, unique decor

  • 5 of 5

Overall, the experience was outstanding. The view of Lake Washington and Mt.Rainier on a clear day are unmatched. The house is well kept and very comfortable with two full bathrooms and a spacious eat in kitchen as well as as a separate dining area with a great view of the lake. The owner of the property is friendly, accommodating, and very helpful. It is situated northeast of Seattle but it is not a long drive into the city at all. I could not recommend this property more. Enjoy!

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights and weren't in the unit much due to a full schedule but it was the perfect place to come rest each night. It was great to have the two bedrooms and two baths for getting all four of us up and out in the morning and the well stocked kitchen was amazing! Very clean, well curated and comfortable. Pam was responsive and professional. The only difficulty we had was the steep driveway which was tricky with our cars. The manual transmission car we brought was left elsewhere after the first day since it was too difficult to manage in and out and the Prius bottomed out even after having everyone but the driver walk up and wait to load at the top of the drive. If you have an SUV or truck it would be much less of an issue.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. The driveway is alerted on the website and I normally give guests a heads up prior to arrival. This is the first response I have had regarding the driveway and I suspect guests back out to avoid the steep pitch at the top.

We loved our stay at the quiet tree top getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We hated to leave in the AM as it was such fun to watch the sea planes taking off, the water skiers, and Mt. Rainier in the background. Great fully stocked kitchen. Beds comfortable. Very clean and great decor.

Awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Owl's Nest. The views were great. We enjoyed watching the seaplanes over Lake Washington. The runners in our family enjoyed the nearness to a running trail--the Burke-Gilman trail. Moody the cat even stopped by to visit us. He was a well-mannered gentleman.

In short, a very relaxing and homey place to stay. Loved it!
