We have enjoyed living in the Puget Sound Area for over 25 years. Staying active outdoors is easy to hike, boat (Barb is an avid dragon boater!), swim and bike close to our home. Our home feels like living in a country setting yet we are so close to everything!
Why Barb chose Lake Morton-Berrydale
We built our home 15 years ago with the intention of hosting families. That dream did not happen but we are now opening our walk-out (lower level) to visitors. We respect the privacy of our guests but look forward to getting to know folks staying in our house.
What makes this Apartment unique
We are located close to outdoor recreation; 10 minutes to Washington National Golf Course, 15 minutes from world class mountain biking trails and just under an hour drive to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort (Mt Rainier) or Snoqualmie Pass. If you prefer water activities, we are minutes away from Lake Morton and Lake Meridian. Services and grocery stores are within 5 miles in Kent or Covington. Maple Valley's Lake Wilderness is close by too!

Felt like being at home
My parents, brother and sister in law stayed here and enjoyed it very much. Barb is a great host and her house is beautiful. She stocks her home with all the essentials from shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom to coffee in the kitchen. We cooked there almost every night and found everything we needed in her kitchen to cook with. Grocery stores are easy to find and about 15 minutes away. The beds were extremely comfortable, there were plenty of pillows and extra blankets if needed.
My brother and sister in law did a little sight seeing and the location is easy to and from major highways to get you to Seattle and the airport.
Everyone enjoyed the easy access to shopping and highways. We felt that the rental was very homey and my parents plan to use it again in the future.
Any questions we had, Barb was quick to respond.
Kristen, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our place! I hope you return soon and enjoy more special times with your family.
Superior rental for anniversary ski trip
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay at this rental property for our anniversary. We absolutely loved our time there. It was private, spacious, and well decorated. Barb went the extra mile to make sure that we were comfortable during our stay. The kitchen was stocked with lots of coffee and delicious snack bars. The fridge was also stocked with orange juice, muffins and eggs. Even though this was a small gesture, it meant a lot to us (especially because we were doing ski trips during the day!). Barb even left a vase of fresh flowers on the kitchen table for us, and a personalized note congratulating us on our anniversary.
This was one of the best Homeaway properties we have had the pleasure staying at. We will definitely be back the next time we are in the area!
Hi Chad, Crystal Resort at Mt. Rainier has the best powder snow for skiing in the Northwest! Thanks for choosing our place to stay...a quick trip to the mountain. Please let me know if I can help you with future trips to the area:) Barb
We had a wonderful time here. Everything we could have possibly needed was provided. We can’t wait to come stay again next year!
We are looking forward to hosting your stay next year! Happy holidays to you and your family.
Beautiful and quiet
This VRBO was among the best we have stayed at. The neighborhood was quiet, the house was decorated beautifully, it was cozy and inviting. The owner thought of everything a person would need and the place was extremely clean!
The owner, Barb, answered all of our questions about the area and gave great recommendations for restaurants.
I would recommend this VRBO to anyone staying needing to stay in the Kent, Washington area.
Lisa, We enjoyed hosting your stay in Kent...so happy you liked your stay! You are welcome to return anytime.
Perfect Weekend Getaway
We had a wonderful stay for our weekend getaway. It is a very comfortable and accommodating place, we definitely agree with prior reviews that the towels were fluffy and the beds comfortable. We were able to relax and enjoy the quiet, beautiful and wooded setting. We would not hesitate to come back again!! Barb definitely is an attentive host and takes care of her guests.. Joe, Cathy, Bert & Cindy :>)
Cathy and friends, You are welcome to return anytime! We are putting the final touches on our outdoor water feature. Soon we will be adding lights to the backyard too. Our guests will enjoy the spacious backyard under the moon light.
Great apartment and location
My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this apartment, the beautiful, quiet neighborhood, the grounds, the convenient location to Mt. Rainier and to Puget Sound. We enjoyed our walks around the lake, our night strolls through the neighborhood, relaxing in this beautiful apartment and chatting and getting to know our hosts, Barb and George. We both would highly recommend this place. Thank you Barb and George!
We enjoyed our lively conversations and swapping stories...so much to share! Please come back and explore more local destinations.
We are located close to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort and Snoqualmie Pass (several ski lifts), about an hour drive or less. The Black Diamond/Maple Valley area is well known for excellent mountain bike trails and road biking. Bike enthusiasts will be pleased with the quality and quantity of trails available. We also know of many cyclists who can give you personalized information about where to go to enjoy the trail systems. Lake Morton is a few minutes away. We have two kayaks available for guests to use. The lake boasts views of Mount Rainier too!
