About Lisa Frostad

Owners have lived in the area since 1994 and have remodeled several houses and offer 4 on the eastside plus Maui, Alaska and Whistler Canada homes for rent. This diamond-in-the-rough estate property offered 2 homes and a chance to bring them from 1980's 'chic' into the 21st century with just a hint of nautical kitsch.

Lisa Frostad purchased this house in 2013

Why Lisa Frostad chose Sammamish

This combination boathouse/lake view home sits behind a larger lakefront home on a 1/2 acre lot. The 2 homes are eparated by hedges and a large garden area so guests have complete privacy. Listed in vrbo Bellevue (more people familiar with that area) but we are actually located on East Lake Sammamish Parkway, in the city of Sammamish at the south end, close to Issaquah. So easy access to Interstate 90.

What makes this house unique

Tons of natural light, sunsets and constantly changing sky and water colors. Eagles, falcons frequent the area. Trail that follows all along the east side of Lake Sammamish is accessible just 100 feet from guests' front door. Same trail takes you to Sammamish State Park boat launch or venture further on into Issaquah where you can grab lunch, hot coffee or ice cream.

Beautiful East Lake Sammamish view home!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home Feb 2017 when we moved from Hawaii to WA. The home was a perfect temporary home for our family while we were waiting for our furniture to be shipped to the mainland. It is very comfortable. It has been beautifully renovated with all high-end appliances and modern furnishings. The view of Lake Sammamish is gorgeous!! Loved waking up, sipping coffee in the kitchen, and looking out the wall of window at the lake! Free Wifi! Free Premium Cable! Free Parking (for multiple cars). All the comforts of home!!

The location is perfect. Natural walking trail just out the front door, public beach a few blocks away. Shopping restaurants, movie theater, farmers market a couple of minutes away. 20 minute drive to Bellevue or Seattle. If you are looking for a quiet vacation home, but close to the city and all the amenities you need, this is the perfect house!!

I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a short term or long term vacation rental. Lisa was extremely accommodating and such a lovely host! Loved our time here!!

East Lake Sammamish home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for Christmas week, 2015. The home was lovely, completely updated with modern furnishings, and extremely comfortable. The location is excellent with shopping & dining facilities within minutes.

There was a gorgeous view of Lake Sammamish, complete with bald eagles roosting in the trees. Nearby was a great walking path that we all enjoyed.

The owner, Lisa, was extremely accommodating and a joy to work with. We will definitely come back.

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and nanny stayed at this wonderful home last summer. We have three boys that comfortably shared one room with our youngest two taking turns in what they called "Harry Potter's bedroom" - the little closet bedroom. The owner was absolutely wonderful to work with and made sure we were happy and comfortable the whole time.

The home is even better in real life than in the photos. The view is gorgeous, there's plenty of room, everything is brand new and beautifully decorated in a tasteful upscale northwest style. The location is quiet with the lake trail right outside your door. We picked HUGE bunches of seasonal blackberries and made desserts and breakfasts with them - so fun! There are malls, movie theaters, shopping, farmer's markets and of course the lake so close by. Not to mention all the fun in Seattle! If you're looking for a quiet lake getaway that's super close to all the action I'd highly recommend this house. We can't wait to go back and spend time on the newly finished deck!

Great location for activities around Seattle

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Lake Sammamish at Lisa's boat house. The house is comfortable and recently re-done. Great kitchen for meals so you do not have to eat out. Beds are soft and bathrooms are updated.
