Why Pam Slyter chose Puget Sound North

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

Gorgeous View

  • 5 of 5

Pam was an amazing owner and represents HomeAway in a great way. She was very accommodating and treated us extremely well. The home has an amazing view of the lake and weather permitting Mt. Rainer. The home is convenient to Seattle, Bellevue and the surrounding area. We enjoyed the San Juan Islands as well as various waterfalls, especially Franklin Falls. Thanks Pam for allowing us to use your home for a relaxing vacation.

We were very comfortable and Pam made us feel right at home with a bottle of wine and coffee and cream. Highly recommend and hope to return soon!

The view of the Owl's Nest from Mt. Rainier is spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

I started this review by reading others that had been posted. I agreed with virtually every one, but looked for the one that dragged the overall rating down to 4.9. It used the word "perfect." Some judges just won't give a 5.0. For all others, it is hard to think of a negative point. I will adopt, but not copy, what people have unanimously said about the House and Pam.

Suffice it to say that we average 7 weeks a year here. When we left yesterday (,January 3, 2017), we had blocked time for March (grandkids' birthday), July (other grandkid's birthday), and November (Thanksgiving). Each time we come for family visits, we walk in like greeting an old friend. It has everything and we know where everything is. Not only that, but Pam keeps adding or updating things--this year a brand new coffee pot; last year a new TV system; COMING Spring 2017, a central AC system. Pam does not just ask if you like Starbuck's--she asks what blend you want (Pike's Place) so it is ready for the first morning.

Some people don't know that Seattle in summer weather is pretty much like San Diego. Easy to get to Point Townsend for a whale-watching cruise or up to Vancouver and British Columbia (great for people who don't prefer Tijuana). And Seattle is a wonderful destination trip, even without grandkids there.

A great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our time in Seattle. We had been used to staying on the other side of the lake but found Pam's side very convenient. The house had everything we needed including great sunshine. Pam was very attentive to add some personal touches. It was appreciated. We'd certainly stay there again when we visit the area.

Home Away From Home - The Owl's Nest

  • 5 of 5

This charming retro gem is the perfect place to spend time relaxing and enjoying the fabulous view of Mt. Rainier from the deck. Our host, Pam, was very attentive to any questions we had prior to our visit as well as while we were there. Her property is in a great location with EASY bus access to downtown Seattle and is also very close to the local City Center where you can find good places to eat or shop for your groceries and take them back to a fully stocked kitchen:). Four of us spent 5 nights at the Owl's Nest and will not hesitate to return the next time we are in the area. We felt like "coming home" at the end of each days' adventures.

Wonderful stay here

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for 5 nights and it was wonderful! The house had all of the amenities we wanted and needed. Pam the owner was so easy to communicate with and very on top of things. We were comfortable throughout our stay and looked forward to returning home each night to the beautiful lake view.

We look forward to coming back!
