Woodinville, WA, USA

Come visit Woodinville and discover all that the pacific northwest has to offer. We live in Hollywood Hill, the heart of Woodinville wine country. 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, and equestrian community mixed with wineries, restaurants, 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. 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. 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 25-30 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). Canada is a two hour drive and 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. 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.

We are a family of 4 (me, my husband and my two 7 year old twins), and live in a modest 3 bedroom, 2 bath home on 3/4 of an acre surrounded by trees. There is a protected salmon stream that runs through our back yard and my kids love to go down and explore (it’s dry most of the time except in the winter). We have a teeter totter in the back yard if you have littles. Our house feels secluded in the woods but you are minutes away from wine, shops, and town.

We are looking for a swap during summer 2018, ideally in Iceland, Croatia, Costa Rica, Norway, Australia, New Zealand, SE Asia, or anywhere outside the U.S. really. We are pretty open on places to visit. Would love to swap anytime mid June to August of 2018.
