8 Reasons to Stay at the Crescent Lake House
1. The fishing is great!
2. It’s quiet (except the birds can be noisy).
3. The house has been remodeled and updated!
4. Close to amenities-shopping, etc. in Gig Harbor.
5. Large wraparound deck.
6. Wooded grounds.
7. It’s a great place to bird watch-eagles, osprey, ducks, finches, hawks, racoons,etc.
8. A county park is located on the lake where you can launch your boat.

Relax on the deck with a drink and your loved one while watching the sun set behind the cedar, fir and pine trees across the lake.

TESTIMONIALS:
I spent two weeks at the lake cabin on what might be classified
as a working vacation, and enjoyed every minute of it. The kitchen
and living area are designed so that I could look at the lake whatever
I was doing. It is extremely private and surrounded by beauty and calm,
with the sightings of a deer, an eagle and three baby raccoons thrown
in. Julie has provided the little extras that made me feel like I was at
home, and I was very sorry that I had to leave. Deborah from L.A.

Thank you for such a lovely cabin. We really enjoyed ourselves. We watched some sort of animal swim in by the dock-just enjoyed the serene location-seemed like time stood still for us. Great Restaurants are: Lele's (behind Borders) awesome egg rolls and sweet & sour beef. Kelly's-lunch-Turkey Gobbler Sandwich. Anthonys-Chop chop salad. Katie from Boise

Get away from it all in this newly remodeled lakefront home. This is a rustic paradise secluded from the street by towering trees. Enjoy lazy afternoons on the large cedar deck. Gentle breezes through the tree tops will be your lullaby. The home gets the late afternoon sun to keep you warm until night. The fisherpeople say that this is the best side of the lake for fishing, too!

Many windows bring the beauty of the outside in and allows for a 180 degree view of the lake. Very quiet and peaceful and a great place to fish, as the County stocks the 53 acre lake every year. The kitchen has been updated, with beautiful slate flooring topped off with granite countertops and Travertine backsplash. Stainless steel appliances include a downdraft Jenn Air range, frige and microwave. The kitchen opens into a large living area with slate and laminate floors to make for easy upkeep. Wide windows bathe the rooms in light. French doors open from the living room onto a huge cedar deck that wraps around the home, extending the living area. The bedroom has also been updated and remodeled and features a lighted closet with multi paned French Doors and sconces on each side of the bed. Fully furnished.

There is a county park across the lake where you can launch your boat. There is a dock to tie it to in front of the house.

Beautifully wooded grounds provide shady comfort. Convenient to shopping. Just 30 minutes from downtown Tacoma, WA.

Location

We are so close to the town of Gig Harbor, that you must visit it when you come. Gig Harbor hosts some of the most expensive homes in Pierce County. The downtown area is located on the largest estuary in the Northwest. Lots of cool shops and parks and things to do in town.

If you are into hiking, there is a large forest down the road where you can walk for hours. Some also ride their bikes through the trails. My favorite thing to do is lie around in a flotation device let my boyfriend pull me in the rowboat! There is a great restaurant in Purdy called the Flotation Device (The float , for short). They have great breakfasts and also usually have live music on the weekends for dancing.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I purchased this home as a personal escape. It is very private and rural, yet just minutes from shopping and amenities. I would like to share it with you as it is so beautiful. It has recently been updated and is very comfortable. Lots of windows that look out to the lake. The cabin is so close to the lake that sometimes it feels like the house is floating. Feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.

Why the Owner Chose Gig Harbor:
I chose to buy this home as it is very close to Tacoma and only takes about 30 minutes to get there from downtown Tacoma. It is just 10 minutes from shopping at Downtown Gig Harbor, and is very private and pretty. It is close to amenities, but feels very far away. It reminds me of the San Juan Islands when I am there.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is a good place to go to fish, to think, to hike, to swim or just to get away from it all. It is at the end of a private, tree lined drive and very quiet. There is a fully stocked kitchen and meals are easy with a full sized frige, a downdraft Jenn Air range, and Microwave. Enjoy cooking meals there with the lovely view of the lake. Birds and Wildlife, including Bald Eagles, hawks, finches, wood ducks, mallard ducks, loons, geese, chipmunks, squirells, and raccoons can be seen around the lake. The lake is only a few steps from the home. From the Expansive Cedar Deck it feels like you are almost in the water yourself. There is a state park with a boat launch just across the lake and there is a nice dock to tie up your boat right out in front of the home. The home is on the Good Fishing side of the lake. The lake is stocked every year with fish from the Pierce County Parks Dept. The large mouth bass and rainbow trout are good eating!
