House Rules

No smoking on the property, pets are ok if behaved however we do have bear and coyote in the area so there is some risk to outside pets, Pit Bulls and Rottweilers are not welcome. Fresh water can be obtained from our well but the connection is up at the house and big rigs would have difficulty turning around at the house location. Access to an RV dump station is in Issaquah at Sammamish State Park or the private Rv park just as you enter Issaquah. You will be camping by some big trees. If its windy, some trees have fallen but nothing in the area of the shop, but it is a possibility. No food should be left outside the rig overnight or for an extended period of time as the bears, deer and coyotes will be attracted. All garbage should be taken with you. No gifts expected, just enjoy the space. Cooking ok with propane barbecue. No cooking on open wood fires. Wood and propane camp fires are only permitted with prior approval.

Location

Access Road Conditions: There is plenty of turnaround room at the location but once you start up the road you will need to go all the way to the location before you can turn around.. You should be able to back your vehicle around a corner. The beginning of our road is steep and a little curvy but the curvy, steep part is very short, 400 to 500 feet. The road is narrow but it only serves 15 houses so it is not well traveled. It is paved all the way to the parking spot. Rigs with tow vehicles might want to disconnect at the bottom of 316th Place SE, before they head up the hill. At the top of the steep part of the road there is a hidden road to the right. Be careful at this intersection as the cars coming out of that gravel road do not always look for vehicles coming up the road. We go up and down with our 24 ft RV and our neighbors have a 22 ft trailer and car going up and down. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Can be parked right next to rv

    I was first impressed by the lovely woodsy atmosphere to camp by their shop, which they visited a few times during my stay. There's more than enough room for any kind of rig to maneuver here, but there are no hookups or water. There is a picnic table, but no fire pit. I brought my own wood and fire pit, and I used it the first night. The next day I discovered a wood pile beside the shop. I assumed it was available, so I grabbed a couple pieces. When the couple came to visit, again, I inquired before using the wood for my fire. I asked if we boondockers can use wood from their pile. He proceeded to tell me that it was for them, meaning, not for me and other visitors from Harvest Hosts. The man said that "since I had been using their wood already, I may as well continue doing so", or something to that affect. I believe that I informed the couple that I hadn't used their wood yet, and I offered to return the 2 pieces I had gathered from their pile. He then said that I could use them. I did use those 2 pieces of their wood, with permission, to supplement my wood, but I put out the fire before using up the wood, so I left the 2 charred pieces of their wood, by the picnic table. No, I would not visit here again.

    Located in a beautiful setting not too far from “all the things.” Surrounded by stunning forest. We were able to setup Starlink too, even with tree cover! The hosts were very kind and made us feel at home. Oh, the spot was very level—no blocks needed! Always a major perk :-)

    Preston Woods was our favorite PNW Harvest Host stop. Everything from booking this site, the prompt communication of the hosts, the friendliness of the hosts, and the location of the stay was top notch. The directions provided to the site was spot on. We were greeted by the hosts on arrival. They are a wonderful couple. The space felt like we were in our own private oasis surrounded by evergreens with the sound of the river below. The parking was large and easy to access. We would definitely return!

    We wanted to ride tiger mountain bike trails, but it was so hot the week we were traveling through. Luckily we were quickly welcomed to stay at The Preston Woods property to wait for the weather to cool off in a couple days. It was so nice to be greeted when we arrived and felt very welcomed. We went paddle boarding and swimming one day at rattle snake lake and visited volition brewery which had a good food truck.
