Located in beautiful Issaquah, WA, where you’re only minutes from virtually every type of outdoor activity. Play, golf, or waterski on Lake Sammamish in the morning, and snow ski at one of the ski areas at Snoqualmie Summit in the afternoon (only 40 minutes from downtown Issaquah). Or, if the city life is more your style, downtown Seattle is a short drive across Lake Washington via the Mercer Island floating bridge.
