Lake Cavanaugh house description

Soak up the best the Northwest has to offer! This amazing 4-bedroom lakefront home on Lake Cavanaugh is the ultimate retreat for family and friends - and only 90 minutes north of Seattle with no ferry.

Nestled amongst old-growth Douglas firs and Cedar trees and on 90+ feet of waterfront, this spectacular custom home was completed in 2011. Enjoy the amazing views of Lake Cavanaugh (the quintessential NW mountain lake) and beautiful Frailey Mountain from the wraparound covered deck. Fir-trimmed windows connect you to the outdoors from every room, making it the perfect year-round getaway.

The house has 4 bedrooms (3 cal king beds + 1 queen) & 4 full bathrooms, as well as a massive bunk room. Our lakehouse sleeps 8 adults & 8 children very comfortably. An open chef's kitchen was designed with cooking and entertaining in mind - you'll love the huge island with plenty of seating, stainless appliances, wine refrigerator and espresso machine. There are plenty of window benches & cozy couches to curl up and read, nap, play a game or just relax & enjoy the view. The wood fireplace provides warmth and ambiance. The bathrooms are gorgeous and feature heated floors & beautiful tiled showers. You won't miss the big game with 2 flat screen TVs (DirecTv), DVD player and WiFi. We also feature double washer/dryer, and provide all linens and towels (including beach towels).

Outside, there are never-ending possibilities for fun. Shoot hoops on the sport court, challenge the kids to a game of pickle ball, or take a peaceful canoe ride out on the lake. Bike rides are another great way to get some exercise and see the rest of beautiful Lake Cavanaugh. The beach is the perfect place to spend summer days, playing with the kids and swimming. Our western exposure means sun from 9AM to 9PM. Bring your boat and spend the day water-skiing or tubing. Or, kick back with a good read and a glass of wine on the floating dock or in the hammock - the sunsets are spectacular!

During fall and winter, cozy up in front of the fire with a board game or good book after a bike ride or hike around the Lake. We're 1000 feet above sea level so if it's 37 degrees in Seattle or Vancouver and raining, it's snowing at the Lake.

Your family & friends will leave Lake Cavanaugh wanting to return! We know you will enjoy this piece of paradise as much as our family does.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1992

          About the owner: We are a large extended family from Seattle and have been coming to Lake Cavanaugh since 1992. In 2011, we came together to build this exceptional family retreat.

          Why the Owner Chose Lake Cavanaugh:
          Our family bought a rustic cabin at Lake Cavanaugh in 1992, and lovingly transformed it into a special vacation spot. Over the years the family grew to include daughters-in-law and lots of grandkids, and we literally outgrew the original 800 sqare foot 2-room cabin. In 2010 we embarked on a family project to design & build a house that our family could enjoy for generations to come.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          We love to take walks and bike rides around the lake, and enjoy cooking family dinners in the large open kichen and eating on the deck. At Lake Cavanaugh you feel far away from the business of life - yet it's only 90 minutes drive from Seattle and Vancouver!
