Vrbo Bear Stay review
Fun stay on Lake America
Randy’s place was perfectly located. We loved hanging out on the dock, swimming right off the dock and catching some reys. The kitchen was well stocked. The beds and linen were so comfortable. Randy was very responsive when we told him the fireplace wasn’t working. It was a great pleasure to meet Jingles (Randy’s) dog and their friends Bernese Mountain Dog puppy Theo. We saw so many bald eagles...which was so beautiful! The sunsets were amazing!!! Really my only recommendation would be to try and convince the neighbor to trim their tree so you do have a sweeping view from the balcony.
Sellers Christmas Trip 2019
My family and I were able to create new family traditions and I was able to host a loving, delicious, and fulfilling Christmas Eve dinner. This home was very accommodating to my families needs. I was able to have fresh warm clean clothes for my children. Because GOD knows it was so cold, that I spoiled my kids with warming there clothes up after their showers. Thank you again Mr. Randy for being a gracious kind host.
What a Gem
Just a fantastic property for anyone looking to enjoy the lake or to use as a home base to explore the pacific NW. It was especially well situated for us as our son got married at the Thornwood Castle which is a stones throw from the house. Beautiful sunsets and ideal water temps and quality have us thinking about renting again even though we are locals to the Seattle/NW area. We rented a jet ski from Ohana Kai Watersports and they delivered it right to the lake so that was a huge hit. Randy, the owner, was very helpful and supportive of our group so do not hesitate to rent this property. Five star property and owner all the way.
Fantastic lake side home
This home exceeded our expectations. Wonderful and quiet gated community. Home is above a garage with gorgeous views of the lake and sunsets. Perfect place for your home base on vacation with plenty of room for visitors. The checkin process was completely effortless. We would highly recommend this rental and look forward to visiting again.
Thank you for the kind words. Hope to see you again soon.
We had a great time and enjoyed all of the amenities and the Fourth of July was amazing at this property! Excited to come back
Thank you for the kind words. Look forward to your return.
About Randy Foley
Our family has lived on American Lake since 2000. My wife and two daughters live in the same area as Thornewood Cottage and simply love the area and all the beauty, history of Thornewood Castle next door, and recreation it has to offer. We believe you will too. We would love to help make your travel as wonderful as possible.
Randy Foley purchased this House in 2003
Why Randy Foley chose Lakewood
Thonewood has a rich history dating back to the 1800s when several timber industry moguls were made. Most notably the Weyerhoeuser Company. Tacoma was the timber capital of the world. Chester Thorne was the financier to the timber barons. Thornewood Castle (thornewoodcastle.com) sits just 150' away. The location is very secluded and private yet you are less than 15 minutes to City of Tacoma and Olympia. JBLM is less than 5 minutes. 10+ years and hundreds of repeat stays, all agree Thornewood Cottage on American Lake is one of the best places they have ever stayed.
