Great Place to stay
The Owls nest is a great home with a great view. We loved the covered outdoor area and the home had all essentials needed. Pam is a wonderful host. I loved the decorations and all her collections.
Want to give a shout out to NEVER SAY NEVER non-profit for it's great work with disabled children!
Impressive views, great lighting, very clean and comfortable, unique decor
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
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.
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.
Great view, very comfortable!
It was Perfect! We loved it Pam!
We all felt at home and had the nicest family time here. The home is clean, warm, and very comfortable. I love your eclectic decor! 😊� The deck space is outstanding! Great place for morning coffee or evening toddies. I caught a couple very nice sunrises there ☀️👍�🏻� We will definitely be back!
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!
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
