The house was perfect for two people! It was cozy, cute, and clean with gorgeous views of Lake Washington and Mt. Rainier. Close to tons of parks and downtown Bellevue. It was also easy and convenient to get to Seattle in less than 30 minutes. The owners in the house behind the property you wouldn’t even know were there. Everything felt so private! They did leave a really nice note on our rental car offering us to use their jet ski which was beyond thoughtful. We will definitely be back!

Stunning cabin and view of Mount Rainier! It was a cozy stay with access to our own dock. Wonderful retreat in the summer and walking distance to Bellevue.
Scott M. Mar 2022
This cozy cabin with its beautiful views was a perfect getaway for us. We especially loved the heated floors during the chilly evenings!
Verónica F. Feb 2022
We loved the cabin!! However the first day we were there it was SO COLD. We arrived very late and no heat was on in the home. We slept with our sweatshirts and sweats on plus the fireplace and found a portable heater and has that on as well. Other than that, it was great! Super cute cabin with a beautiful view.

This cabin was beautiful! Yes, lots of narrow stairs to to get to and from car, a little tough with luggage, but worth it! Heated floors are wonderful but take a while to heat up or cool down. Very clean. Would’ve enjoyed an extra blanket to cozy up with on the couch by the fire. Corner kitchen table was a perfect spot to eat or do a little work.

I had the great pleasure of being able to stay at this cabin for the week after Christmas, during New Years. It did not disappoint!! Seattle got a nice dumping of snow so it added to the charming ambiance. The fireworks show right in front of the cabin over the water at midnight was an awesome surprise!! A couple things to note- The kitchen is wonderful and well appointed but it doesn't have a stove/oven. The driveway down to the cabin is very steep (not drivable when there's snow/ice, even with a 4x4 suv) I was able to park above and walk down it. There are 60-70ish steep stairs leading down to the cabin so pack light!! Once you reach the cabin, you're in your own private little world steps from the lake. Its a wonderful place to relax and unwind!! I'm looking forward to visiting again.

Such a nicely done space! Very small, but the details are so well done and luxurious! Assure you can do the stairs and vehicle ok in the very steep driveway. As long as you are ok with that, the place is fabulous! We thoroughly enjoyed it!
Patricia B. Dec 2021
The perfect little getaway spot. We were there 6 days and loved every minute. It felt like stepping back to quieter times and imagining when going to the eastside was an adventure. We didn't leave except to walk to the little neighborhood grocery about a mile down the road. Highly recommended if you can walk up the stairs and you enjoy peace and quiet.
Natasha S. Nov 2021
this is our second visit to this property. as before we had a very nice stay. the place is clean and comfortable with the exception of a couple minor issues: the toilet is still unstable, although it seems it was attempted to be fixed. there was only one plastic hanger in the closet. otherwise, no complaints.
Elizabeth C. Oct 2021
It's the perfect cabin, only thing to be aware of is that the driveway is a very steep hill.
Linda C. Sep 2021
We loved sitting on the little dock watching the water. It was so peaceful. We loved sitting by the outdoor fireplace for our meals. It was so beautiful there. Very cozy.
Douglas M. Aug 2021
Small but everything you need and well thought out.
Dan D. Aug 2021
This place is so good we don’t want to review it and share the secret. We did a couple’s weekend to celebrate and anniversary and it was magical—waking up to the water, having a cozy but clean and useful cabin, playing on the Lake… all wonderful, and four minutes from all the food etc. that Bellevue has to offer, without feeling like you’re in the city.

The hosts are great, the cabin is great, the setting is great. Thanks!!
Claire B. Jul 2021
My husband and I chose to stay in Medina because we wanted to enjoy some time on a lake during the peak of summer. The log cabin is cozy, comfortable and clean with a great view of the water. We loved relaxing on the small dock and taking in the view of the lake during sunset. The whole experience exceeded our expectations, and we are so grateful for the memories we have now. Thank you!
Theresa B. Jul 2021
This was exactly the experience I was wishing to have! The cabin is absolutely darling. The view was more than I could have hoped for and the hosts were as cool and comfortable as the cabin itself. Unforgettable experience for which we are very grateful!
Ashley F. Jul 2021
My Husband and I had a great time in Medina! The cottage was very clean. Would recommend to anyone!
Earl S. May 2021
Lovely cabin in a great setting. Wish every vrbo lived up to its billing like this one did for us.
Catherine C. Apr 2021
We feel so fortunate to have found this beautiful retreat for our short stay back in Seattle. Thank you for sharing it with us! We found the view from the outside patio or inside the cabin so very relaxing and loved watching the activity on the Bay, always changing! The cabin is very private and has been restored with care and attention to detail. It is very convenient to Seattle and the surrounding area. We can't wait to stay here again, we loved this charming cabin on the water!
Danny n. Apr 2021
The little log cabin was truly unique. We recently had the luck of staying at it. It was a close drive into Seattle and anything we needed was close by.. The cabin was furnished with everything you would need including a great host..The coziness and comfort beat any hotel suite..what suite can you lay in bed with the fireplace going and look out over a lake and a distant downtown skyline lit up at night?
Natasha S. Mar 2021
We were comfortable and happy with the stay. There are a couple of minor things that need attention. The toilet wobbles when you sit on it. The main two windows looking on the lake need cleaning. But otherwise, well put together and kept little cabin. We would definitely come back for another stay.
Carey R. Feb 2021
Beautiful and well appointed cabin with an amazing view. Wake up to the mist gorgeous lake view. Has all of the modern comforts
Nicole K. Feb 2021
A wonderful cozy cabin to be snowed in for a romantic weekend!
scott g. Jan 2021
We really enjoyed our stay in the old restored log cabin. It was very clean. It is right on the water and very romantic. There are many stairs to get down to the cabin so keep that in mind when reserving.
Kirstyn R. Jan 2021
This cabin was exactly what we needed for our weekend getaway. It was thoughtfully stocked with everything we needed, and the views can’t be beat. We will absolutely be back!
Bradley G. Oct 2020
Beautiful location that is quiet and peaceful, with great views! The cabin is cozy, with a lot of little details that make it extra special. Would not hesitate to stay here again!
John K. Aug 2020
This property is really fantastic--my wife and I stayed here about a week and could not have asked for a more tranquil setting to decompress for a few days while visiting the area. Owners are incredibly hospitable and checked in on us a couple times to make sure everything was going well for us. The secluded feeling of the cabin right on the lake is great but the house is also only a few minutes drive/walk away from parks in the area as well as all that downtown Bellevue has to offer. Would definitely recommend and certainly hope to stay here again.
Beverly T. Aug 2020
We spent a relaxing week at this charming cabin by the lake. So convenient to everything and yet a world away. Watching the lake life from paddle boarding and kayaks at sunrise to all types of boating activities was very entertaining. The smell of jasmine and sitting by the outdoor fireplace with Mt. Rainier just beyond was magical. Our host checked in to ensure our visit was memorable but otherwise it was our private oasis. We appreciated the local info and reading about the history and hope to return.
William D. Jul 2020
Lakefront property perfect for 2 people. Very well
Maintained and very generous owners. Definiatwlt a great place to stay!
Nathan B. Jul 2020
Had a great stay for 5 nights and the property and environment was perfect for my wife and I. Plenty of privacy and very quiet atmosphere. Owners were nice and we only met them once when they came down to the lawn to offer an extra service/ generous gift we weren’t expecting. The pace was clean, well stocked and comfortable. Very close to great restaurants and things to do. We’ll be back when we need another quiet retreat.
Elise P. Jun 2020
Quiet, well-appointed cabin on the edge of Lake Washington. Highly recommend for a single person or a couple for a romantic getaway.
Jane S. May 2020
Great location! Very we’ll appointed. Fabulous view
Kathryn P. May 2020
The cottage is well appointed, very private, and right on the water. There are a number of stairs from the driveway - but it didn’t bother me at all. If you can handle a regular flight of stairs, you’ll be fine.
Donna H. Nov 2019
Peaceful and Quiet retreat on Lake Washington. Sunrise is a sight to behold. I would have rated it 5 stars if the access was not so difficult. Though picturesque, 50 one foot high flagstone steps made access arduous and something we were not capable doing more than once daily.
Levi W. Sep 2019
This separated cottage is simply breathtaking. The hosts are kind and helpful, and the place itself is something very special. I will definitely be returning here in the future.
Simon P. Aug 2019
Great location, beautiful views, and close to town. Would come back again

This was our first trip to the PNW, I searched all over town and couldn't decide on using vrbo/airbnb or just grabbing a hotel as we were staying for 7 days. I found this gem and both my wife and I were extremely pleased after staying here. Everything was setup for convenience. The company that helps the owner of the property had things clean and ready to stay when we showed up, they had a sheet of info telling you restaurants and house rules etc... You have a contact if anything goes wrong. The view is amazing right out to the water, you have tv with xfinity and a kitchen full of the usual things you need if you want to cook. We really enjoyed using the fireplace as well, really kept you warm.

The neighborhood is super nice and the Bellevue downtown is about 4 minutes away, Seattle downtown is about 15-20, and to the east is a 20 minute drive to beautiful country and mountains/hiking.
Alisa L. Sep 2018
We had an amazing stay in this wonderful little cabin right on Lake Washington. Very cozy, comfy, clean and quiet, everything we were hoping for in our stay. The owners were very thoughtful in the amenities included in the rental which made it feel like our little home away from home. The town of Medina is very quiet, with many parks right on the water and some great views of downtown Seattle from the East. Downtown Bellevue and it's many shops and restaurants are only a few miles away, if you feel the urge to get out for a bit. But you most certainly have everything you would need right there at the cabin. We made dinner and breakfast both days in the quaint kitchen and enjoyed our meals overlooking the lake. Everything about the rental and check in process was very easy. Thank you for opening up your property to us! We'll be back!
Evan M. Sep 2018
From the time we arrived we felt welcomed. Very Nice little get away on Lake Washington. Beautiful Views and Cozy Amenities...Planning to do again soon.
