                                      About the owner: We are big supporters of family life and have made our vacation rental as family-friendly as possible. There are fun-filled activities here for young and old, indoors and out, active and quiet from swimming or fishing in the lake to chilling in the media room with a movie or in the library with a good book. We lived in this house until our kids left the nest. We now live in a smaller house next door. It's a Little bit of heaven! We hope you'll choose Heron Lodge for your next vacation.

                                      Why the Owner Chose Bremerton:
                                      Lakefront, beautiful, quiet, able to swim and fish, and for canoeing/kayaking/boating in the lake in the summer, an hour from Seattle/Tacoma or SeaTac airport.
