The 'pool house' connects to the main house and is owned by the eldest Williams son and current owner Brad Williams. As a master carpenter Brad has fully renovated the guest house to be an independent guest suite, styled with a mid-century modern feel.

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the lovely guest house for my daughter's wedding in Woodinville. We loved the place! It is close to The lake front in Kirkland, shopping, Woodinville and Bothell..without all the noise and hassle of getting on the freeway. The owners were so nice and very concerned about our stay. The guest house is quiet, with views of the lovely back yard and a wonderful private patio. The inside is tastefully decorated with a mind to comfort and style. Bed was just right too...kitchen had everything we needed. My husband and I are already talking about coming back next summer for a 10 day stay.

Thanks Mara for sharing your place with us!

Exactly as described, a beautiful guest house

  • 4 of 5

Exactly as described, a beautiful guest house in a quiet neighborhood. There was a welcome tray in the kitchen upon our arrival. We were visiting with our son and his family in Kirkland so we were mainly using the guest house as a place to sleep.

One suggestion I would have is to provide a flashlight by the bed. There are two easy steps between the three different levels of the guesthouse, but when you get up at night to use the bathroom, it would be handy to have a flashlight within reach. We borrowed one from our son after our first night along with a box of Kleenex and then we were fine. Everything else was provided and we loved staying there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback! We do have a night light placed between the bed and bathroom for safety and convenience. There is also a flashlight in a cupboard...always be sure to message us during your stay so we can help you with anything you need!

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well maintained "pool house" that has a comfortable bed, cute kitchen, good living room and loads of outdoor space. A deer visited us one morning. There are many trails around to explore. Very comfortable and quiet. Great for couples.
