The space

Lake Forbes Cottage

Welcome to your home away from home!

It doesn't get any better than this. Experience the Puget Sound the way it was meant to be experienced. Get the luxury and amenities you'd get at a hotel with all the convenience, privacy, space and romance of a vacation rental bordering a large greenbelt with a lake. Relax in this serene retreat with nature at your back door yet with the convenience of city living in the heart of Kirkland on the Eastside of Seattle. You’ll get to enjoy your own private space with a bath, bedroom, living area and kitchen in a cottage designed with your comfort and privacy in mind.

Our home away from home is newly furnished and decorated and has proven itself valuable for traveling business, academic & medical professionals, short-term/transitional Seattle stays, vacationers and single or double occupancy on a nightly/weekly basis while visiting friends and family.

If you’re traveling from Germany, or speak German I speak fluent German and will be happy to contribute as much as I can to make this an experience you won’t forget.

Your accommodations include one bedroom with queen-size bed, full bathroom. You have your own kitchen and dining area complete with oven, refrigerator and cooking utensils. Relax on the deck with protected wetlands as your scenery. Cable TV, and WIFI services are available.

After many years living in Seattle, we continue to be awed by the beauty of this neighborhood, its proximity to nature, and its breathtaking sunsets. So, pour a glass of wine, come relax outdoors on the deck, and watch the sun slip behind the lake and trees as it illuminates the sky.

Stefan's cottage was very clean, private, quiet and charming. The cottage included a kitchen with a small table, a full sized, comfortable bed and a modern bathroom with a shower. It's located on a private road, but only a few minutes by car from stores, restaurants and major streets into Kirkland and highway access. This fit our needs perfectly. Would highly recommend.

The place is cozy and just as expected. The interior is nice and clean. The host is amazing at responding to our needs and the location is very nice. There isn't a view of the lake but place is close to stores/ restaurants -- very convenient. We found some leftover items from previous guests, which was quite unexpected and weird; such as unfinished milk and a book in the closet, etc. There were maintenance being done at 630 am during our stay, which was a bit disturbing. Overall, it was a great place to stay in Kirkland.

Cozy, comfortable little space very close to downtown Kirkland - great for the 2 of us + big yard for the dog for our week in town. The cottage has everything you need (unless you require a giant living space - no separate, dedicated living room here, but we found it to be fine), and Stefan and Crystal were very kind and accommodating. Perfect location for someone working at Microsoft in Redmond, too. We would definitely stay here again! :)
