About Kim and Arne Schrider

Welcome to Gone Fishin' Cabin, our home away from home in the Northwest! My husband and I both have busy careers. And like most working parents, we are challenged by balancing family needs with work schedules. The cabin is our little Puget Sound waterfront get away from the chaos of normal life. Here, we can enjoy a stroll on the beach with the sea breeze in our hair, take in the amazing oceanfront view while sipping our morning coffee, and listen to the crashing waves from the deck lounge. And the best part, the kids can play on the beach, go clamming, learn to fish or kayak in front of the cabin. Happy memories are made of these...!

Kim and Arne Schrider purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Kim and Arne Schrider chose Olalla

Gone Fishin' Cabin is in the amazing Puget Sound and within an hour from Seattle. We're super family friendly. It's easy to travel to the cabin, either by Ferry or by road. It's in a small rural village, but also close to Gig Harbor, a seaside port with a pedestrian waterfront, quaint shops, restaurants, and all amenities.

What makes this cabin unique

As a family, we love just hanging out by the water and enjoying a relaxing time BBQing, fishing, crabbing, clamming, kayaking, snuggling with a book, or playing board games. When we feel really ambitious, then we go for a long walk on the beach. Taking it easy is what we enjoy best at the cabin.

Lovely waterfront getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful, out of the way property. Highlights include the fresh decor, the fenced porch, the incredible views, watching the boats, the fire pit by the water, walking the beach at low tide, the bald eagle that flew right in front of us and the playing seals. Kim was super responsive. We loved that there were plenty of linens, far more than we needed! Each room could set temperature, so nice for those in our group who ran cold during the night. Overall, we loved our stay here. A few things if you are considering this property. Small winding roads are taken to get here. If you suffer from car sickness another property may be a better choice for you. The nearest grocery store is about 20 minutes away, so come stocked! Thanks Kim for sharing your space with us!

Cozy Family Friendly with Stunning Views

  • 4 of 5

This rental was so family friendly! My daughter loved the toys and the playground. The gas stove was so cozy. The kitchen had everything we needed. The beds were comfy and everything was very clean. The view is amazing, and you are right on the water. We saw eagles and seals from the dining room and deck. We saw dear as we were driving down the road. We made some lovely memories on our family trip.

From the oldest to the youngest, all of us cannot wait to get back to the Gone Fishin’ beach house. I almost didn’t write this review because I’m sharing one of Puget Sound best kept secrets.
