About the Property
Cozy, luxurious, 3 bed/2 bth on quiet lake with privacy, hot tub—sleeps 8-12
THE MOOSEHEAD CABIN is the perfect place to get-away with friends and family. Nestled on the north shore of a beautiful, quiet lake, with 10 private acres of surrounding meadows, forests, wetlands and beautiful views, you will feel like you are at your own private resort—yet it's only a short 90 minute drive from Seattle.
Our clean, comfortable, and luxurious home has everything you need for a relaxing and fun get-away. Whether you spend your time inside, or outside, everything is here!
The outdoor hot tub is just steps from the front door and open year round. The heated pool is open from May to September. A spacious wrap-around deck is the perfect place to watch the eagles sore over the lake, or enjoy outdoor dining at a table that seats up to 12 people.
A short path through the trees leads to a private 60' dock, with a rowboat, kayaks and a canoe for guests to enjoy on the lake....or bring your own motor boat or jet ski to enjoy on a lake that is never busy! The kids will have fun on the play structure, at the full size volley ball net, or playing catch in the meadow. At night, gather around the outdoor fire-pit next to the lake for smores under the stars—or on cold days, gather in the great room, with a roaring fire in the giant stone fireplace (under the moose) to play games, watch a movie, or read a book. Plenty of all 3 are provided.
Up the road 1/4 mile is one of Washington's best kept secrets—Penrose State Park—with wonderful salt water beaches on Puget Sound, and easy hiking trails through the woods, with spectacular views of Mt. Rainier at the end of the trail.
Lakebay Marina is also down the road, and is the 'happening place' during the summer with beer tastings, ice cream, and paddle board rentals. It's also a great way to visit by boat, and short term moorage is available.
Come discover a little slice of paradise at THE MOOSEHEAD CABIN.

Ten private acres on BAY LAKE. Best of both, freshwater (lake) and salt water beaches up the road at PENROSE STATE PARK.
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Hello from The Schellings. Our family of 5 enjoys traveling and lots of activities. Since we have 3 boys, spending time outdoors is a MUST. That's why we love spending time at the Moosehead! We built The Moosehead Cabin 2000. We wanted a place we could get to easily from Seattle (less than 2 hours), and had lots of space for our boys to run. We also wanted to be on a lake where we could enjoy activities like water skiing, fishing, and canoeing. When we stumbled on on Bay Lake, we knew we had found the place. Steve was nicknamed 'moose' throughout his school years, so we thought it would be fun to build a mini-lodge with a moose as the centerpiece. And so it began. The Moosehead Cabin has been a labor of love, and we enjoy every minute we're there. We hope you do to.
Why the Owner Chose Lakebay, WA, USA:
Close to Seattle. Lots of privacy. Lake allows motorized boats. Great Southern exposure with lots of sun. Good restaurants and shopping in charming Gig Harbor.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
PRIVACY!! When we looked at other 'destination' places, most of the houses were all close together. We love the fact that no one sees us on our property, and we feel like we're miles away...yet really not at all!
