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

Breathtaking views and the perfect location right outside the city!
Our family loved this beautiful home. Lots of space and the beds were amazing! The views were spectacular - Mt Rainier was visible from the spacious deck. We plan to stay again when we visit Seattle. Absolutely recommend for a relaxing vacation!
Everything was great, The owner made everything available for us. The ambiance and the comfort of the home was excellent. So much more convenient than a hotel.
Fabulous views, great location!
Gorgeous view of Mt Rainier and the lake. Extremely well stocked kitchen and very comfortable furnishings. Easy access to downtown. Thoughtful and gracious host.
Ideal Accommodation for UW Visit
We found this lovely home while searching for a stay for our son's UW graduation. With beautiful views, a lovely balcony, and all the comforts of home , we absolutely enjoyed our 4 days here. We also appreciated the great restaurant and activity tips. Thanks for the personalized wine and coffee, Pam, and so graciously mailing a jacket left behind. We highly recommend this home for your next visit!
Perfect spot for a VERY busy week
As a family of four already living in the Bryant/Ravenna neighborhood, we had to find a place locally to live while our house was being shown to sell. Already a very stressful and busy week (last week of school as well!), we were so grateful to have this beautiful location as our home base. Such a cool, mid-century, funky vibe, all the while being super comfortable and inviting. I kept thinking this would be the perfect spot for when people have extra family in town. Thank you for the great experience!
Wonderful Owl's Nest
We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Owl's Nest. It is a beautifully maintained period piece, with eclectic decor and great art. The house is very clean and well equipped. (The only item we wished for: light-obscuring window treatments in the Japanese themed bedroom; very bright at 5am.) Delightfully landscaped setting. Fantastic deck for grilling, dining, lounging; friendly cat included. Very quiet, peaceful neighborhood. Driveway entry is steeply pitched, glad we brought the Jeep and not the Mini! Short walk down to the excellent paved walking/biking trail along the lake. Short walk up to the Express Bus stop that whisks one into downtown Seattle in about 20 min. Helpful guide to the home's workings and regional info in a binder for guests. Owner was easy to reach for a minor question we had. We would certainly stay at the Owl's Nest again- it is an elegantly comfortable and inviting property.
Thank you for your positive and detailed review! Will look into new window treatments in bedroom to match others throughout the house. The driveway entry is cautioned on the property description and the owner always contacts guests in advance to let them know of the issue in order to plan accordingly with rental vehicles.
Close to Burke Gillman trail for biking and running; famous Third Place Books at Towne Center; Kenmore Air for day plane trips to San Juan Islands; Bastyr University; minutes to downtown Seattle and Univeristy of Washington
