Three Locations in Washington State---Feedback Needed on Best Location

Jump to last reply

I'm taking my family to Washington this summer. I've been up there with my wife many times and love it, especially the East Side where we have always stayed. We are renting a house with some of my extended family which will consist of six adults and four kids (oldest is seven). We are wanting to relax and enjoy some hiking and outdoor activities, especially with the two oldest who are boys. Ideally I would like to be no more than 30-40 minutes from Bellevue so that we could also do some things in town. However, I can't find anything on VRBO or other rental sites I'm aware of that would be desirable. What I am finding are some great rental houses in three general areas:

1. Whidbey & Camano Islands
2. Olympic Peninsula close to Port Angeles
3. Wenatchee Forest (Cle Elum or Leavenworth)

The only one of these I've been to is the Olympic Peninsula. I loved it and would go back, but it's a lot of driving to sites around there, which can be a pain with little kids. Anyway, I would love to get some suggestions from the forum. Also, if you know of a website or means where I could find something desirable near the East Side I would appreciate it.
