Covington house description

A BRAND NEW HOME
Perfect Washington State vacation / holiday getaway rental by owner in this lakefront setting on Lake Morton, WA near the town of Covington, Washington. This once modest 1950's ranch style home has gone through a massive transformation in 2013. Designed by Matthew Coates Design and constructed by Mehl Homes, it now features modern, northwest architecture living room, dining room and cook's dream kitchen with simple lines, open concept, original restored wood floors and wood-burning fireplace, custom millwork, soaring ceilings, modern lights and lots of natural light and spectacular lake views.

UNMATCHED LAKEFRONT BEAUTY
While the home is special, the natural setting of Lake Morton and the property may be even better! 100 feet of your own private beach lakefront and dock and a large yard set on an acre of beautiful, Northwest landscape, with views of Mt. Rainier. The house has two comfortable, quiet and dark bedrooms (perfect for deep, relaxing sleep) plus a connected but separate 'bunkhouse' (fantastic for kids).

ULTIMATE LAKEFRONT GETAWAY
Bring work or leave it all behind. Includes a flat-screen TV, cable, DVD movies, music CD's and stereo. If you have to check email or take an important call, you can do so with free WIFI and good cell phone coverage. Best of all, you can do both while sitting on the end of the your own dock on the lake.

SHOPPING & SERVICES NEARBY
You won’t have to be prepared to arrive at Lake Morton, WA. There is Costco, Fred Meyer, Safeway, Walmart, many restaurants, and three (3) Starbucks just 10 minutes away!

IDEAL WASHINGTON STATE VACATION / HOLIDAY RENTAL
1) 'Friends Getaway' – three or four couples or a group of buddies will love Lake Morton, WA for a quick and easy adult weekend getaway.
2) 'Family Vacation / Holiday' - kids have their own 600 s.f. bunk/play room with TV, movies, games, books, crafts and their own bathroom. Plug in a movie or put the kids to bed and enjoy a relaxing evening on the adult side of the house.
3) 'Small Groups' - bring your group to Lake Morton, WA for a quiet and restful getaway, lounging by the lakefront, enjoying the new living space, reading the day away, or just sleeping in.

                  Car: Necessary

                  AN ADVENTURE FOR EVERYONE

                  It only feels remote at Lake Morton, WA. The location provides easy access to a wide array of activities. The urban cultural center of Seattle, WA and the alpine adventures of Mt. Rainer and the Cascade mountains are all less than one hour away. There are several first-class golf courses minutes away, as well as hiking, mountain biking & horseback riding nearby.

                  Yet with a beautifully renovated modern home, large deck and private dock and lakefront, along with boating (canoe & kayaks), yard games (badminton, croquet, horseshoes), swimming, fishing (bass and trout), lakefront bonfires (wood provided), and BBQ's, you may not want to leave your private getaway on the Lake Morton, WA lakefront.

                  Other Activities: 45 min to Seattle. 1 hour to Mt. Rainier.

                  Golf: 10-15 minutes to Druid's Glen, Elk Run, Lake Wilderness and Washington National Golf Club.

                  Ski: 45 minute drive to Summit-at-Snoqualmie and 1 hour drive to Crystal Mountain.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1995

                  About the owner: Jen purchased the home when she was working as a High School music teacher locally. She's since moved onto become a Sommelier, entrepreneur and wine educator. Brent is a tech executive. We live in SF Bay Area but long to return ultimately to live on Lake Morton.

                  Why the Owner Chose Covington:
                  We love the history of the property - the 'cabin' was the first building built on Lake Morton in the early 1950's. We love how the house is set back from the lake, taking advantage of lake views, providing privacy and a large yard. The original owner was President of the local gardening club so many interesting plants live on the property. Best of all is the lake - beautiful year round.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Given Jen's past in Seattle area and Brent being from Vancouver, BC originally, the home has served as a place for friends and family to congregate and share many a fun memorable time in this special place. We hope you'll enjoy the revamped living space, lake views, deck, yard and lakefront as a stage for your next romantic or social or family occasion as much as we enjoy the home and property.
