Perfect in every way !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here Friday through Monday ahead of a business meeting I had on Monday morning. If you are arriving at night, pay close attention to finding the driveway. The cottage was Perfect. Cute, accommodating, and very comfortable. The hosts were very attentive to all our needs. We will certainly come back again in the Spring/Summer to enjoy the area in another Season. Highly recommend this place. We had no problem getting in and out of downtown Seattle and spent plenty of time exploring Kirkland too.

Quiet and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed here in the past and even though it is on a busy street, the cottage is at the back of the property and very quiet. It is surrounded by beautiful plantings and trees. We are hikers and runners and did both while here. The bonus is they have a washer and dryer in the lower part which is a very nice feature.

The cottage was clean and the bed comfortable. We walked to restaurants and the little walkway along Lake Washington. Would stay again.

Very cozy and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location and the beautiful greenery surrounding the property! The only issue was with the walk up to the cottage. My parents are older so I was a little concerned about them falling...etc. Might want to make some changes there but otherwise we were very happy.

Perfect place for two! Secluded, quite and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

A short drive from the airport with private parking and seclusion right near Lake Washington. Best place for a romantic visit for two! We stayed one week with all our basic needs covered. We only needed to make a quick 15 min drive to the grocery store and we were totally set up. The owners of this property keep the location very clean and well stocked. We travel a lot and this location offered many things most do not. Including bed already made! This is wonderful after a long flight arriving in the middle of the night.... lol Bathroom has multiple sets of towels! Items free when you arrive like Bottled water, Coffee and Tea. The Bathroom had shampoos, lotions, conditioners, shower caps and extra TP! The kitchen sink had a new dishwashing sponge, dish soaps, trash bags, storage bags and paper towels. It feels like home with a full kitchen, washer, dryer (including detergent), wood stove, large living area, bedroom and bathroom with walk in shower! Our next visit to Washington State we will definitely be visiting this location again. You can pack minimal and have all your needs met here. Highly recommend this location to anyone looking to visit this area. Close to Seattle for some fun and a short drive to the National parks to get away for a day. Love this place! Happy to give the owner a 5 star rating!!

Kirkland Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean, well organized and very comfortable.

Difficult to locate in the dark, could stand a better walkway from parking lot to unit, especially for senior citizens.

Owners assistant very responsive to our needs

Great place for a relaxing romantic weekend.

Will definitely stay there again

Quiet living in a beautiful property in Kirkland.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the cottage for 2 months while working in Kirkland, it was an easy walk to work and easy access to buses with a bus stop outside the main house. I did not rent a car, so it was super convenient! The property was very quiet and the cottage manager Khrystina was super helpful and friendly when I needed anything. It was also great that I had a washer and dryer in the garage to do laundry, and the owners provided everything for that.

The cottage was split into 2 rooms, the bedroom with a super comfy bed, a bathroom and a main room where you enter. To the left of the main room, a small kitchen with glassware, pans, cutlery, etc everything you need for cooking and a small dorm refrigerator, dining table and chairs. To the right was a comfy couch which was easy to sleep on, a wall mounted 32 inch TV with cable and wireless internet that peaked at about 120 Mbps (good for gaming/Netflix/FireTV, etc)

I had some minor issues with the heating when it was very cold. The radiator on the left side of the cottage didn't kick out enough heat. The heat out of the unity maybe reached 4-7 inches, some days I would have to leave it on during the day, so that the cottage was warm when I came home at night after sunset. There was a small space heater but it wasn’t enough to heat both rooms at the same time. I would suggest buying a second, so there are 1 in each room for the colder months.

The door does leak cold air and on a few occasions, I had to put blankets over door. I would recommend upgrading the windows and insulting the door to keep the heat inside the apartment on the colder months.

Also the freezer was frosted and required a repair which I informed them of.

Overall, these were minor things, I felt safe and secure in the cottage. It was wonderful being on such a beautiful property, made me sad to leave after it was over. I would definitely recommend this place to stay for a long period of time, and I hope to live here again in the future when I come to visit on business.
