Port Orchard cabin description

Our cabin on Carney Lake is the perfect retreat for couples, families, a girls' or boys' weekend, scrapbooking getaway, or even group or corporate events. It is a fully functioning home, but tucked into the trees of the Olympic Peninsula with a beautiful view of the lake from the Adirondak chairs on the deck. It is quiet, cozy and welcoming. In the summer, the swim float is ideal for the kids' King of the Float contests or just to bask in the warm sun. There is also canoe to explore the lake in its entirety. There is a fire pit for s'mores and hot dogs and plenty of grass and beach to visit with friends, watch the kids in the water or simply enjoy the quiet.

In the colder months, snuggle up on the big couch by the gas stove while reading, watching movies, tackling a puzzle or playing games.

There are two bedrooms, but also two lofts. Each loft has a futon as well as additional mattresses. The sectional is also a sofa bed, so there are plenty of soft places to land.

If relaxation isn't the only thing on your mind, we are about 20 minutes from the Bremerton ferries, taking you into Seattle for the day, or head south on Highway 16 to do some shopping and eating in Gig Harbor. Heading west just a few miles will take you to Hoods Canal, and more water and hiking adventures beyond that all across the southern Puget Sound and Olympic Peninsula. And five miles down the road is Trophy Lake Golf and Casting Club for the golf and fly enthusiasts.

Whether you are here on business, pleasure, to see friends and family, or to get away, our retreat on Carney Lake will be all you are looking for.

*** 2015 Chambers Bay US Open: We are 20 miles from the US Open at Chambers Bay in University Place. Easy highway access to the shuttle stops on the east side of the Narrows Bridge. This will be the perfect spot to unwind with the grill, a beverage, and swimming in the lake after a tough day watching the best of the best on the course.

Please ask for special rates/agreements for long-term rental opportunities September - May.

          Location

          Carney Lake is a small, mud bottom lake for swimming, fishing, canoeing, sailing, paddle boats, etc. Gas motors are not allowed on the lake. The cabin is within minutes of Puget Sound, however, where all of the water activities above can be found/enjoyed. You will also be five miles from Trophy Lake Golf and Casting Club.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1999

          About the owner: My father actually bought this house in 1999 as his own home. He passed away in 2008 from ALS and left this beautiful retreat to our family. We live only 45 minutes away, so it is an ideal getaway for our busy lives (three children under 14), but we are also so busy we don't use it nearly enough. We have been so happy and blessed to share it with so many who fall in love with the lake house as soon as they walk in the door. It really is the perfect swimming and canoeing lake in the summer; fire, movies, puzzles and games in the winter. Wine in the Adirondak chairs on the deck is perfect any time of year.
