10 of my favorite cottages for sale in the Seattle area
Growing up in Seattle in late 1950s we had a summer cottage on Lake Sammamish which is located 8 miles east of Seattle. The cottage could only be used in the summer because it was only a single wall constructed home with a fireplace yet, it was perfect for summer! The cottage had a large enclosed sleeping porch and a mammoth game table, or at least it seemed, in the living room which was perfect for playing cards well into the night.

Most of the summer cottages that once lined the shoreline of Lake Sammamish have been replaced by larger homes designed for fulltime residences working in Bellevue, Redmond, Issaquah, and Seattle.

Cottage homes have become a great alternative to condominiums or townhouses for people who want to live in a smaller single family environment.

Rainier views from every home with main floor master suite.
