Perfect for large groups/multiple families with 3 master suites! Surrounded by old growth forest with trails, yet 5 mins from the freeway, bus station and Olde Town Issaquah. Also close to Bellevue, Seattle and Snoqualmie Pass, shopping, live theater and restaurants. Well stocked kitchen, roomy living rooms! ADA Accessible in lower level. Boat parking avail.
Can also rent just one level! Internet search for "House in the Woods (upper unit)" or "(lower unit)" to book one level as an apartment.
This house offers the best of both worlds: literally minutes from charming Olde Town Issaquah, the freeway and the conveniences of urban life, yet tucked against a mountainside and surrounded by a canopy of trees (and fresh air!).
This 3,300 sq ft house is unique with 3 custom built master suits, all including neo-angled tubs with waterfall faucets and spa-like atmospheres. Each space was artistically designed and you might have a hard time choosing between them!
***An update to the pictures includes a large flat screen TV in place of the piano in the main living area downstairs, as well as a larger table upstairs.
You'll find special pieces throughout, including up-cycled remodels, high-end kitchen updates and antique built-ins from local lakefront mansions.
From the floor plan to the lighting and decor, we hope you find this space cozy and inviting.
Booked as the whole house (through this listing), you'll have 2 full kitchens, 2 flat screen TVs, 2 living rooms for gathering and relaxing, and 2 washer/dryer sets. Multiple master suites means everyone can relax in their own private space. This is ideal for large groups or families!
Enjoy cooking in our updated kitchen upstairs. Having the appliances (two ovens upstairs and one down), knives, serving bowls, and some spices in the pantry will make your stay easy and comfortable.
House in the Woods has in-floor geothermal radiant heating and cooling system and distilled water straight from the pigot at the kitchen sinks and several bathroom sinks.
Off the upstairs kitchen is a large deck with a grill and bench seating for summer guests.
In the lower level, you'll find up-cycled finishes, exposed beams, and interior brick accent walls.
The upstairs master has a king bed and walk in closet. In addition to queen/double beds, the downstairs masters have charming twin bed nooks and soothing dimmable lights throughout. The other lower level room is a "den" with double bed (no attached bath or closet). It has glass French doors on two walls with stained glass accents.
The lower unit is ADA accessible:
- paved parking is level with front door
- wide hallways and doors
- roll-in shower
- seats in showers
The home is nestled in the trees along Hwy 900, a high traffic road between Issaquah and Renton. Expect to hear cars and trucks pass by day and night from inside, but also enjoy the sights and sounds of mother nature all around you. See photos for proximity to the street.
Being on Hwy 900 means you won't spend extra time driving through neighborhoods or city streets to get to your destination. From the house, zip right onto this scenic road and hit the freeway, town or trailheads within minutes. Note that commute hours in the morning and late afternoon create heavy traffic on this road, I-90, and main roads in Issaquah, so plan accordingly.
Outdoor enthusiasts will find two ski resorts less than an hour away, as well as boating/swimming, miles of cycling, running, fishing, downhill biking, destination hiking and even paragliding just down the road. Water toys and boats can be parked in the open space to the right of the house.
Issaquah has a charming shopping area called Gilman Village as well as restaurants, live theater and local shops along Front Street.
It was remodeled to be booked as one large house, OR as two separate and private units on each level. Fastest way to find them is an Internet search for:
"House in the Woods (upper unit) Issaquah"
"House in the Woods (lower unit) Issaquah"
If you're sensitive to road noise, note that the upper unit's wall-to-wall windows and open floor plan do make it easier to hear the cars/trucks. Although you still hear traffic in the lower unit, it is quieter.
Contact me if you'd like to add more people than is allowed.
(We recently purchased this home from friends who also hosted House in the Woods on Airbnb. If you've stayed here before, you'll notice that the furnishings and vibe are exactly the same!)
There is a large grassy area for recreational activities and hiking trails within walking distance or a short drive around the bend in the road.
Interaction with guests
We live locally and are available for emergencies or tips about the area. I usually check in to see if everything is working out at the house.
Other things to note
- Easy drive to Seattle, Redmond or Bellevue.
- Convenient to Costco HQ, Seimens, OSI/Spacelabs, T-Mobile and Microsoft.
- Close to Issaquah wedding venues, including Trinity Tree Farm, Grand Ridge Manor, Tibbets Creek Manor and Pickering Barn.
Please keep our home clean and eco-friendly by removing your shoes and protecting the natural forest outside.
Please do not bring outside guests (for insurance purposes) to the property.
No smoking, vaping, marijuana, or parties.
Please leave the unit tidy by washing dishes, leaving used towels by the washer, and throwing away all trash in the trash bins at the driveway. It is appreciated if you compact the trash as much as possible.
Remove all opened food and wipe up any spills or splatters on the floor, counter, wall, furniture or appliances. Leave the house and property tidy and neat. Cleaning fee is for normal cleaning, bedding changes, sanitizing, mopping, etc... Excess cleaning will be charged from the security deposit.
We are on SEPTIC, which means ONLY TOILET PAPER can be flushed. We ask guests to throw food scraps in the trash and avoid using the garbage disposal, if possible, to maintain the health of the septic system. This is critical. The consequences for abusing a septic system is messy, smelly and expensive. We appreciate your cooperation!
The person booking must be an actual guest at the house.
Keep in mind that this is a remodeled, older home in an old growth forest. It's beautiful and the house is well maintained, but certainly not perfect. We appreciate your understanding if unpredictable issues, such as dead light bulbs, loose handles, or other notable things happen. Contact us when it needs attention (or just give us a heads up) so we can provide the best experience possible.
There is a $50 charge for checking out after 11am. If you check out after 12pm, you will be charged the cost of one nights stay.
We look forward to hosting you!

Our families, Tyler & Tanya and Todd & Coleen (pictured), run Airbnb listings together. The brothers grew up locally and we all love calling the beautiful Pacific Northwest our home! We enjoy adventuring with our combined crew of 9 kids, whether we're on vacation or exploring local biking trails, beaches, hikes or Seattle spots.
We all live in Issaquah, so someone will always be available to help during your stay!
