Nestled at the base of a small mountain range known as the Issaquah Alps, on the banks of Lake Sammamish, Issaquah is one of Washington's natural gems, a beautiful community for outdoor enthusiasts and those looking for quiet family living. Although the commuter destinations of Redmond, Bellevue and Seattle are all within a 20-minute drive, they feel a world away in the tree-lined foothill neighborhoods of Issaquah. Homes for rent in Issaquah offer unparalleled access to some of Washington's most beautiful outdoor spaces and highest-achieving schools.
Bordered to the north by Lake Sammamish and surrounded by three mountains - Cougar Mountain, Squak Mountain and Tiger Mountain - collectively known as the Issaquah Alps, Issaquah is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and families looking for kayaking, hiking or even more extreme sports such as paragliding. Families will particularly enjoy visiting the rare species housed in the Cougar Mountain Zoo and learning about salmon at the hatchery downtown. In addition to the shops and dining of the historic downtown, Issaquah residents also have easy access to the top-tier entertainment options of Seattle and the surrounding communities.
