About this property

Wandering Wombat Cottage Downtown Issaquah

Wandering Wombat Cottage has beds for 8 and is walking distance to vibrant Front Street restaurants, gastropubs, breweries, cafes, art galleries and the awesome Village Theater. A quick 30 minute drive into downtown Seattle either by car or bus or turn the car in the other direction to Snoqualmie skiing, Snoqualmie Falls, incredible hiking trails and the famous Treehouse Point wedding venue. We offer warm Aussie hospitality in downtown Issaquah, WA. Fully equipped for a great stay. The space Wandering Wombat Cottage has three bedrooms and a private loft space which comfortably sleep eight people (loft space has no door but is away from the living area). The recently renovated house has a full kitchen, two bathrooms and laundry facilities. The house is a perfect set up for two families, as it has two queen bedrooms and two bedrooms with 2 twin beds. The kitchen has a full sized refrigerator and freezer, dishwasher, oven, cooktop and Keurig coffee machine. We provide all the necessary items you should need to cook proper meals including knives that actually cut! Coffee, tea and a few other staples are provided. Guest access Guests will have exclusive access to the whole house. Parking for up to four cars is also included. The house has a rear deck which is a nice place to hang out. Interaction with guests I am available by phone, email or text during your stay. I live just up the road if you need me. We are more than happy to provide restaurant and tourist recommendations for you. Please ask! The neighborhood Wandering Wombat Guest House is a short stroll to the vibrant restaurants, bars and arts scene of downtown Issaquah. You can also walk to the local salmon hatchery, playground, participate in fun local activities such as the Wine Walk, and if you're in town in October, don't miss the Salmon Days Festival. An old-fashioned butcher shop, a chocolate factory and a great local market are also located on Front St. Other recognizable stores like Safeway, Target and Costco are also just a short drive away. Boehm pool is only a block away (check Issaquah Parks and Rec website for public swim hours). We are a short drive to Swedish Hospital, Costco corporate offices, Microsoft, etc. The area offers great access to downtown Seattle either by car or by bus. We're only a mile from the I90. It's a great area to stay away from the city and surrounded by mountains. For outdoorsy people, we are only 30 minutes from the snow at Snoqualmie, and 10 minutes from nearby recreation on Lake Sammamish. A short drive will get you to some gorgeous hiking locations. Poo Poo Point paragliding is just down the road! Only 12 minutes to the incredible TreeHouse Point wedding venue. Perfectly located for people attending weddings at Trinity Tree Farm, Pickering Barn, Fox Hollow Farm and Snoqualmie Falls. Fast 50MbPS Wi-Fi and cable TV included. Getting around Buses to downtown Seattle and other locations are available 2 blocks away. Issaquah Park and Ride is also great if you would prefer to take the bus downtown, just a 3 minute drive. Other things to note Our house is located on busy Front Street which puts you in the heart of the action and although the house is set back from the road and protected by trees, there can be some traffic noise outside the cottage. Inside the house feels private and quiet. The cottage is old and the ceilings upstairs are low. Upstairs bedroom not recommended for anyone taller than about 6 ft. Both bathrooms are downstairs and one is accessed via the downstairs master bedroom. Cleaning service during your stay is available for $100. For your protection we have installed a Ring doorbell camera which helps us monitor the property. There are no cameras inside the house.

Family gathering for a wedding

Jane's house was perfect for our family to spend time (5 nights) together while attending a wedding in the Seattle area. It is in a great location and has everything we needed for six adults and two teenagers.

5/5 Excellent

Love this little place! Nice setup & fantastic decor!

We all enjoyed our time at the wandering wombat. Beautiful area & only a 30 min drive to summit at Snoqualmie! Highly recommend this place 😊

5/5 Excellent

Awesome place to stay

Just 6 minutes from Issaquah Swedish Med Ctr. Provided plenty of beds for family to clone and go as we cared for mom during hip surgery and recovery. Jane shoveled the driveway and entrance prior to our arrival. Amazing care. Lots of details throughout the house. The light switches are a bit confusing, but great lighting. We loved the place. Very clean. We would definitely stay again. Thank you Jane.

5/5 Excellent
