About Barb

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This unit is spacious and very well maintained. The location is second to none with a wonderful lake just a short walk to the north. Walking or running on the neighborhood streets was a quiet and beautiful experience. The unit was clean and had new appliances and furnishings. It was conveniently located close to restaurants, hiking, and shopping. We had 3 adults in our party and the Owner surprised us with a second bedroom fully furnished in lieu of the advertised aero-matress! It was heaven!!

Great location, nice owners!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place near Kent, Washington! Large, clean areas to enjoy eating and resting. Great decor, new furniture and appliances, great big beds and pillows. Plenty of towels and extra bed clothes, kitchen set up with everything needed plus extra pantry items. Cookies and milk in fridge. Great landscape around Home! Only one slight problem was master bedroom door did not shut properly. Would recommend to all interested in visiting Mount Rainier area! Thanks so much to Barb and George!!!

From the moment we arrived we felt very welcomed. There was sweet tea, water and fresh cream in the frig. There was also a bowl of fresh fruit. Our second night George built us a fire in the firepit for smores, he even made us sticks for our marshmallows. We truly felt like queens. Our four days there were so peaceful and relaxing, we really hated to leave. I have been using VRBO for at least 8 years and this is the nicest place I have ever stayed. Thank you so much George and Barb for sharing your beautiful home.

Absolutely brilliant!

  • 5 of 5

After my dad's passing, we needed a vacation. After doing some looking with the local AAA, and also checking hotel prices we were advised to look at this website (HomeAway) and so we did. That's when we found this absolute gem, with owners/hosts that are equally praiseworthy. We stayed a full week, and it was great. Our interactions with the hosts were always amazing, they are extremely kind and thoughtful. I even got to learn about roasting coffee, which last time I checked wouldn't be offered at any hotel.

If you want comfy beds, the beds here are excellent. After adjusting to the time change, we all slept great and there were no complaints of stiff backs from hard beds. A point of note, on our return trip we missed our connection and were forced to stay a night at a hotel in Atlanta. The difference in bed quality.. Let's just say we missed the beds that you will find here.

As someone who likes to cook, I found the full kitchen extremely handy. There is a Fred about three miles away in Covington if you need to do a light shop.

Now here is the thing. If you want something right in the heart of Seattle, this probably isn't the place for you. It is a distance from the city. However, if you want somewhere quiet that offers you a place to unwind after a day of sight seeing - then look no further. It's quiet, the landscaping is soothing, and you can watch hummingbirds from the couch. Sure, the tv has netflix and hulu... But board games and hummingbirds!

To round out this review, let me just finish by saying simply. If you are planning to head to the greater Seattle area, and don't mind being a bit outside the city; then this is the location for you.

To our hosts, thank you for being amazing!


Matthew, Jessica, and Kathy.
