About Randy

I've lived in Tacoma for 45 years and on American Lake for the past 15. I'm married with two daughters that are very active in dance. As a family we enjoy all sorts of water activities as well as snow sports and biking. Our location is perfectly situates to enjoy it all in our back yard or just a short drive away. I've work in the radio advertising industry for the past 20 years. Thank you for considering staying at Thornewood Cottage. You will not be disappointed.



Randy purchased this house in 2005

Why Randy chose Puget Sound North

It is difficult to describe the history, views, privacy, and unique setting of this home until you experience it for yourself. Since I first built this home as a vacation home in 2005 over 200 families have all loved it.

What makes this house unique

Your own very private beach and dock. The gated neighborhood has a ton of history as the original estate of Chester Thorne a very successful business man around 1900. He built ThonrewoodCastle as a weekend place for he and his wife Anna. The private gated and very secure and peaceful yet you can be in the city in 15 minutes.
