Lake Cabin Retreat on the Olympic Peninsula

Bedrooms 2
Half Baths1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Our cabin on Carney Lake is the perfect retreat for couples, families, a girls' or boys' weekend, scrapbooking getaway, or even group or corporate events. It is a fully functioning home, but tucked into the trees of the Olympic Peninsula with a beautiful view of the lake from the Adirondak chairs on the deck. It is quiet, cozy and welcoming. In the summer, the swim float is ideal for the kids' King of the Float contests or just to bask in the warm sun. There is also canoe to explore the lake in its entirety. There is a fire pit for s'mores and hot dogs and plenty of grass and beach to visit with friends, watch the kids in the water or simply enjoy the quiet.

In the colder months, snuggle up on the big couch by the gas stove while reading, watching movies, tackling a puzzle or playing games.

There are two bedrooms, but also two lofts. Each loft has a futon as well as additional mattresses. There are plenty of soft places to land.

If relaxation isn't the only thing on your mind, we are about 20 minutes from the Bremerton ferries, taking you into Seattle for the day, or head south on Highway 16 to do some shopping and eating in Gig Harbor. Heading west just a few miles will take you to Hoods Canal, and more water and hiking adventures beyond that all across the southern Puget Sound and Olympic Peninsula. And five miles down the road is Trophy Lake Golf and Casting Club for the golf and fly enthusiasts.

Whether you are here on business, pleasure, to see friends and family, or to get away, our retreat on Carney Lake will be all you are looking for.

Please ask for special rates/agreements for long-term rental opportunities September - May.

About Carina & Dean

My father actually bought this house in 1999 as his own home. He passed away in 2008 from ALS and left this beautiful retreat to our family. We live only 45 minutes away, so it is an ideal getaway for our busy lives (three children under 14), but we are also so busy we don't use it nearly enough. We have been so happy and blessed to share it with so many who fall in love with the lake house as soon as they walk in the door. It really is the perfect swimming and canoeing lake in the summer; fire, movies, puzzles and games in the winter. Wine in the Adirondak chairs on the deck is perfect any time of year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin was everything we needed it to be and we wished we could have stayed there for the whole 8 days we spent in Washington state! It is a fact that the pictures don't do it justice-it's huge and cozy all at the same time! We made good use of the pancake griddle and the canoe-the gas stove in the livingroom and the videos. We did a lot of hiking up to Sol Duc and Salmon Cascades and even out to Forks and Rialto beach and La Push and it was great to have such a place to come home to!!

Fun and relaxing

  • 3 of 5

It is always relaxing by any water to me, but this trip was relaxing because I didn't need to worry about bringing extra chairs, bedding etc for my family. Everything was there. This will be our 2nd birthday celebration out at Carney Lake. It was a hit and our family and friends enjoyed their time just relaxing by the fire pit or playing the available games inside.

We like the outdoors so the overgrown shrubs, bushes and trees didn't bother us. Thank you for the extra cut up wood for the fire pit.

It was nice to have a canoe (the other had a leak) to paddle and enjoy the water and scenery. It was a challenge cleaning off the life jackets though. They had creepy crawling bugs and slugs on them. A weather/bug resistant container might help with that.

Other than that the directions were clear and the place was all ready for a fall, fun weekend.

It was nice and close for us as we and our guest had to travel from the Tacoma/University Place area.

We would definitely rent again.

tranquil lakefront property

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing time at Pierce cabin. This cabin is a really great place to go to relax. It has everything you need and is pretty secluded. The cabin was clean and Carina was always available. I would highly recommend this property. The Wi-Fi wasn't great but who needs it when on vacation. We played games, made smores, and had lots of fun in the lake.

Carney Lake Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Great house on a very quiet lake setting. Our family of 5 adults and 2 children found it spacious and comfortable. We would easily rent again. The owners were more than a accommodating to our needs. I would highly recommend this as a wonderful vacation spot.

Lovely home on a quiet lake

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I went to Pierce Cabin for a girls weekend getaway and really enjoyed our weekend. The lake and outdoor space is beautiful and peaceful, and having the canoe and paddle board at the cabin was such a nice touch - most places I've been to don't have that. There were plenty of places for us to sleep, it was nice that the lofts had lots of smaller beds to accommodate our group of 10 people. The house and kitchen were fully stocked with everything you could need, including a great working grill. It was too cold to do much swimming, but had it been warmer we would have all swam out to the raft to enjoy. Really enjoyed Pierce Cabin and hope to come back someday!

Car: necessary

Carney Lake is a small, mud bottom lake for swimming, fishing, canoeing, sailing, paddle boats, etc. Gas motors are not allowed on the lake. The cabin is within minutes of Puget Sound, however, where all of the water activities above can be found/enjoyed. You will also be five miles from Trophy Lake Golf and Casting Club.
