About Ron Tellefson

We are two active seniors who enjoy caring for Harbor Hideaways and the waterfront. We give TLC to this lovely property and our guests have enjoyed a wonderful place for vacations, family reunions, and gatherings.

Ron Tellefson purchased this house in 2005

Why Ron Tellefson chose Lakebay

It provides the best of the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, with an accessible and walkable Puget Sound waterfront, Mt. Rainier View, giant firs, a quiet getaway for individuals and families. It is a large property with plenty of room for land sports as well as water sports.

What makes this house unique

Gig Harbor is a charming century-old fishing village with wonderful shopping and walking. Tacoma has the Glass Museum, The Tacoma Art Museum and Washington HIstorical Socieity. At the property a local kayak vendor will deliver kayaks to the beach. There is a swing set and climbing structure for kids, as well as horse shoe pits.

Watch geoduck harvest boats off-shore seeking the precious seafood for Asian consumption.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful vacation home. Today we dug for clams while our 7 & 10 year olds made forts in the sand. Your home is so comfortable, immersed in the serene climate of the Pacific Northwest, we now find it a chore to leave to sightsee. We have delayed sightseeing for a 2nd day in a row, preferring to stay home and enjoy the surroundings. Thank you!

Incredible View

  • 5 of 5

Family from four states gathered together at Harbor Hideaways to attend a wedding in Gig Harbor. The house and cottage accommodated our group exceptionally well. We loved the fire pit on the patio. The path to the beach is steep but did not stop my husband from packing down his rowing skull for a row on the sound each day. The blackberries were abundant and made a delicious pie! Wedding events kept us away from this serene setting. We could have spent all our time just enjoying the view and being together. Thank you again for a wonderful place to gather.

Excellent family environment and setting

  • 5 of 5

We rented both the main house and the cottage for our family and found the location and setting terrific for our somewhat large troupe of 14 which included many of our grandkids!

The home and cottage are both clean, in good shape, and well appointed filling all our domestic needs. The location was a bit tough for our planned day trip hikes to both Olympic Nat'l and Mt Ranier, but we were always happy and most comfortable upon our return.

The "patio" area outside the main house had a wonderful view, awesome in ground fire pit and picnic table too.

For families looking to enjoy a lovely and relaxing overall environment set in the beautiful Key Peninsula area we recommend it highly!

Quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Easily sleeps six (three couples) and the view is terrific. Beach front access is good and is the perfect place to get away from the city and have some away time. Would definitely recommend again. Kitchen was well furnished and everything was clean.
