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

Wonderful & unique
Comfortable, well-stocked, beautifully furnished home. The views are stunning! The neighborhood is quiet. Bus stop is very close by.
Great place and location out if the city
Absolutely beautiful place to stay just outside of Seattle! Easy bus ride to downtown we were here for 2 PEARL JAM shows and Pam Is equally awesome as a host! It was perfect for 2 couples although we could have fit another couple comfortable. John & Mary (Morgantown Pa) Matt & Dawn (coatesville pa)
Great place to rest with fantastic view on lake Washington & Mount Rainier!
The place is in a quiet area with a great view on lake Washington and Mount Rainier and we enjoyed it very much coming back there after visiting Seattle. Shops and restaurants within few miles. There is a bus stop a few minutes walk from the house and it takes you within 20-25 minutes downtown - easy and very convenient if you don't want to drive. The decoration is amazing and full of stories which I had the chance to talk about a little bit with the owner. Thanks for everything Pam!
We are a group of 5 women over 60, and recently stayed at Owl's Nest. We had a great time and the house suited us perfectly. Yes, it was very retro but it reminded us all of our youth and was fun in that way. It was also very clean and comfortable. The rental had kitchen items we could use like teas, spices, and Pam (the owner) even gave us a pound of our favorite coffee and a bottle of wine! No other rental we have ever stayed at was that accommodating! Pam was also really helpful. We were close to the bus so we took that into Seattle. The BBQ place nearby was good, and the trail at the bottom of the hill was really nice. And again, the views were outstanding!!
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.
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
