About Marcy or Norm Willis

Married 40 years, passionate about travel especially to Italy and France, 3 wonderful children - 2 amazing grandchildren!

Marcy or Norm Willis purchased this cottage in 1916

Why Marcy or Norm Willis chose North Juanita

This property is spectacular because the guest cottage on our grounds is one of a kind. We designed the interior after we took a trip to Nantucket Island! People that have stayed here say it is uniquely peaceful! Will be featured on, "TINY HOUSE NATION!" at the end of 2016!

What makes this cottage unique

The benefits are that it's close to everything, the beach, the mountains, downtown Seattle, Microsoft, Boeing, Google, and if you love islands - the San Juan's are only 2 hrs. away!

Kirkland is like a beach town in the summer with arts festivals, alfresco dining everywhere and a beautiful waterfront to stroll and enjoy the view of downtown Seattle and the Olympic mountains. Come stay a week or stay a lifetime! You'll be glad you came!

Warm and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage in Kirkland was a real find as it was warm and welcoming and well-appointed. Four cozy nights allowed me a comfortable and restorative time. Lovely thematic linens were provided for the bed and bath. Finding good coffee and half and half plus English muffins and raspberry jam was a sweet surprise upon my arrival. Chocolate truffles were an added treat. Marcy and Norm were most helpful and kind. I look forward to returning one day.

We had a wonderful time at the cottage. Exactly as advertised. More private than I expected, which was wonderful.

Surprise, Arizona

Beautiful setting, Great location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 41st anniversary at "Nantucket" and enjoyed every minute. The location is perfect for getting to the cute downtown Kirkland, Carillon Point water front, shopping and restaurants. Easy drive to Bellvue, Redmond, Woodinville Winery's and Edmonds, one of our favorite towns. The estate in over 100 years old, peaceful settings and so darn cute! 550sq. ft. is roomy enough for two with queen bed and single window step sleeper for two additional guest, children would be the best. Complete kitchen and bathroom. Hardwood floors, lots of windows for bright, cheery light. A fireplace for ambiance too! The reason for the 4 star is that I would put a foam topper on the bed to make it a bit more comfortable, we couldn't get the surround sound to work, and a small dresser would have been nice for our clothes to unpack and "move in". Otherwise, we will visit again and would highly recommend this little hidden nugget to anyone! Norm and Marcy are delightful hosts and are available for any questions and concerns. We can't wait for our return visit to Kirkland! Thank you Norm and Marcy!

Owner's Response: Just FYI, had a topper on the bed and a different guest thought it was too much! You never know, and the surround sound is disconnected when we replaced the system! Thanks, Marcy
