About the owner: Having moved up from Florida, we are still in awe of the Pacific Northwest. Its beautiful here. To have a cabin on such a beautiful lake and so convenient is a real blessing. Besides swimming and boating, our other passion is horses. We live on a small horse farm about 1/2 hour from the lake house.
Why the Owner Chose Tacoma: This property is a dream come true. That special home on a lake. To have that view from every window. It never grows old. Kayaking on the lake is fabulous. It's a meandering lake full of fingers and coves. I've seen an owl bathing and preening; otters playing and countless hours of the osprey fishing. There are plenty of bald eagles fishing too. But still, we are not far from all the city has to offer. There are miles and miles of bike trails, great golf courses, Puget Sound is 15 minutes away, hiking on Mt Rainer...so much to day..or you can just relax at the cabin. We have high speed internet and Comcast TV for those connected folks too.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our cabin is a perfect retreat. Although you are convenient to Interstate 5 it is a world away. So, quiet and private and beautiful. Lake views from every window.
We often have families here to visit their soldiers at Joint Base Lewis McChord. It's a great home for entertaining. With the open floor plan there is plenty of room for everyone. In the Summer you can play on the lake. In the Winter you can enjoy the cozy radiant heat floors, jacuzzzi bath tub and large rock wall fire place.
This is a custom built home. The castle like front door was hand made by the owner, his father and brother including forging the hinges. It is massive. The rocks in the fireplace wall were gathered durring his travels abroad. Every detail was executed with care and love.
