General overview

Come visit Woodinville and discover the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Our home is located in Hollywood Hill, the heart of Woodinville Wine Country. Woodinville is conveniently located between Redmond, Kirkland, Bellevue, which are bigger cities on the Eastside of Seattle (and just a 10-15 minute drive to those areas), and downtown Seattle is a short 20-25 minute drive. Kirkland and Bellevue have a lot of great waterfront parks and shopping for you and your family. If you are an outdoorsy nature loving person like we are, you are just 45 minutes from the mountains. Take a short trip to famous Snoqualmie Falls (where Twin Peaks was filmed), or go to the Olympic peninsula and visit the Hoh Rain Forest, the largest temperate rain forest in the U.S. Or take a ferry to one of the many surrounding islands (Orcas island, San Juan Island, Bainbridge Island, Vashon Island, Camano Island to name a few). In short, nothing is more than 3 hours away in any direction. We are surrounded by beautiful mountains such as the Cascades, the Olympics, Mt. Rainier, and Mt. Baker (which you can get to in just 3 hours). The Pacific Ocean is a 3 hour drive. If you have time, go visit Vancouver, Canada which is just a short 2 hour drive from our house. If you like to really explore the surrounding areas when you travel, you can visit each of these places in a day trip. With all of our beautiful lakes, mountains, forests, and beaches, this area is truly a nature lovers paradise. I’ve lived here for almost 15 years and am still discovering new places to adventure to all the time. All right here in my own backyard. Whether you want to have a relaxing stay sipping wine and going to the spa, or would rather explore the surrounding areas more, from hiking to biking to boating, or just enjoying the city, you will love everything this area has to offer.

The space

Our house is a cozy, simple, and modest 3 bedroom 2 bath home situated on 3/4 of an acre surrounded by trees. Our house feels secluded in the woods, but you are just minutes away from anything and everything that you need, whether it's shops, restaurants, parks, movie theaters, grocery stores, hospitals, etc..) We have two 8 year old b/g twins, so if you are traveling with children, there are plenty of books and toys for boys and girls. There is one king size bed and two double beds (in each of the kids bedrooms). There are also three decks in the backyard to enjoy the outdoors. We have a well stocked kitchen and a BBQ for grilling, and a teeter totter in the backyard for the littles. There is also a protected salmon stream that runs through our backyard (although it's dry in the summer months). It's great for kids to explore and play in nature. The house is away from any main roads, so kids can play freely and unsupervised in the front or back yard and parents don't have to worry about cars and traffic. We are a low tech family, so there is no T.V. in the house, but we do have internet and wifi to watch shows or surf the internet on a laptop.

Neighbourhood

Are you looking for a nice getaway retreat close to Seattle but away from all the noise and traffic? Do you also love wine tasting? Then a visit to Woodinville is a must! Woodinville is just a short 20 minute drive to Seattle. Whether you are a couple looking for a romantic, relaxing getaway, or a family looking to experience Seattle and the surrounding areas, this place is perfect for all your needs. Our neighborhood is quiet, safe, beautiful and a great place for going on leisurely walks down the street, or just a 1 minute drive into town. Woodinville boasts 118 wineries and tasting rooms, 14 microbreweries, distilleries, and cideries all within a 5 mile radius of our house. Woodinville is a premier wedding venue due to the natural beauty and is a unique blend of rural agricultural/farming land, equestrian, and residential community mixed with wineries, restaurants, parks, and a downtown area. There is hot air ballooning right down the street from us. We are a 1 minute drive to Chateau St. Michelle Winery, Columbia Winery, RedHook Brewery, JM Cellars, world famous farm to table restaurant The Herb Farm, Barking Frog, Willows Lodge and Spa (a top wedding destination), and Woodinville lavender farm. There are restaurants to fit every budget, and tons of parks and things for kids to do if you are traveling as a family. Many of my neighbors have horses on their properties, and you will often see horses walking right past our front window. Just down our street we have a big red Melissa and Doug style barn with 3 horses that our kids love to walk to and say hi to. If you love bicycling or walking, our house is also just a 5 minute walk to the tolt pipeline trail which connects to the scenic Sammamish River trail. And that’s all within 5 minutes of our house.

Getting around

Although we are very close to shops and the wine village, we are situated on top of a steep hill and so I recommend to either bike or drive (keeping in mind that if you bike it is a short and fun ride down, but you will have a steep hill to come up on the way back).
