Venue Highlights

The Lakeside Bedroom Suite overlooks the water from the midpoint of the shoreline, giving a broad vista of the lake and surrounding area. It is situated in the heart of Woodinville wine country in a quiet neighborhood on a dead-end street. Facing east, it offers a clear view of the sunrise, weather permitting. Eagles from a nearby nest soar frequently over the water, which is filled with waterfowl, otters, beavers and trout. Deer occasionally wander into the yard.


This private suite consists of four rooms; a bedroom, living room and office with views of the lake and a full guest bathroom. The bedroom has a queen-sized bed, a Keurig coffee maker, soft robes, slippers and an electronic massage cushion. The living room has a private entrance with the hot tub right outside the door. It has two cushy chairs, a loveseat, cable tv, WiFi, music and DVD players, CDs, DVDs, games and a wide selection of books. There is table for dining indoors if preferred. The office is useful for computers or deskwork. The bathroom is equipped with toiletries and a hair dryer. We have lived here since 1978 and are pleased to welcome you to what is for us a magical spot. We hope your stay here is as conducive to your peace and enjoyment as it has been for for us.
