WE ARE REMODELING AGAIN- WE ARE OFFLINE UNTIL MARCH 30 --- NEW WALK-IN SHOWER ON THE MAIN FLOOR WITH HEATED FLOORS AND STONE SURROUND. - IT IS LOOKING GREAT - YOU CAN RESERVE FOR AFTER APRIL 1 THANKS
This Unique Property is close to conveniences, like Costco and Walmart, yet private and secluded from the noise of the City. We are in the town of Black Diamond, which is adjacent to the City of Covington and due east for SeaTac International Airport nestled in the foothills of the nearby Cascade Mountains.
The Property has an open floor plan with access to the party deck with only a few steps to the water. As the deck is covered rain or shine it is the perfect place to read a book, watch the fishermen or the wild geese or grab a canoe or kayak and go fishing or play on the water. We require the use of our many life jackets as safety is most important.
We will upload a new video once construction is complete
BEDROOM #1: This light an open bedroom is upstairs and has a spectacular view of Lake Sawyer and Mt. Rainier peaking over the trees and greenery, with a backdrop of the hills and trees in the distance. Truly breath-taking. For your privacy just close the new designer shutters and the room gets darker. There is a ceiling fan and summer fan when it is warm or just use the central air conditioning. This room has a queen bed with a sunburst window.
BEDROOM #2: Is also on the second floor and has a view of the lake with a private deck. This room also has a queen bed.

BEDROOM #4 This is the largest bedroom located on the entry level. It has french doors that open right out to the lake, with a private patio. This room has 2 full-sized beds and extra twin mattresses. There are plenty of linens for the extra Twins in the linen closet.
LOFT: There are two twins in the loft just outside the two upstairs bedrooms.
RV Parking - The driveway is long enough that you can back in your RV right through the gate and back it up to the door. Even after that there is room for several (probably 6 or 7 more) other vehicles.
This lake side Retreat with Awesome views is a perfect place to get away for a relaxing stay - this waterfront oasis is a 2,040 SF lake house, and rests serenely on Lake Sawyer where the grass goes right to the water's edge and is a sanctuary for your senses, with spectacular lake and Mt Rainier views all behind a private gate.
Change is Good - Our contractor is finishing updating the house again, with more to come (every year we change something - this round we are changing a small tub shower combo in the main floor full bath into a walk-in shower with stone work and glass doors and we went crazy and added heated floors so the tile will be warm.
The living room opens to a large deck that is completely covered with a breakfast table and chairs. We have two new barbecue grills so you can cook with different temperatures on side by side grilles all under cover.
Bring your ski boat or fishing boat right to the yard.
It is a really fun place for you and your family and friends to play, so much that you will not want to go home. You will be right on the water, the lawn flows right down to the water, where your boat can be docked.

About Pam Millard
On January 2, 2017 I have commenced managing this property and am excited for this opportunity to provide quality vacation rentals for our guests - I'm Pam if you have any questions just email me directly. Ken is the builder and is available to assist if you need help.
Pam Millard purchased this House in 2017
Why Pam Millard chose Black Diamond
Our family purchased this home and just love to spend time here. But we have an active family and are not able to be here all the time and want to allow others the same opportunity.
What makes this House unique
This property is unique. It is magical to sit in front of the fireplace reading a book and watch the sunrise. Then catch a fish right of the lake side or just relax. Then take your boat or your jet skis around the lake then to return to roast marshmallows on the fire pit. This is the relaxed life you deserve.

We loved out stay at Lake Sawyer Waterfront Retreat. We have a large family and it's hard to find places where everyone can be comfortable. This place was perfect! There were 7 beds (3 queen, 2 double, and 2 twin) so everyone had a place to be without having to share a space. The kids spent all their time on the lake using the kayaks/canoe. The home had everything anyone would need. I appreciated the use of a washer/dryer as everyone got wet a lot from the rain. It's very close to Maple Valley which made shopping very convenient. I was the most surprised at how quiet it was. We spent a lot of time on the deck just relaxing, listening to the birds and watching the sunset. I highly recommend this place!
We had such a wonderful time, even with the rain😂�
The house was awesome! Beds were great. View is amazing. A lot of things to do at the house. Thank you for making our Stay so awesome.
It was very nice
The owner is wonderful, always prompt to get back to you, accommodating, the House is nice and warm, loved the atmosphere of peace.
Nice place to stay with a few too many disappointments
This house is a nice place to stay but it took some time to get over the initial disappointment. The view is nice, and the photographer did a wonderful job of making this place look palatial, but it's actually just nice - with all kinds of mix and match dinnerware, glasses and silverware. A sharp knife and a pair of kitchen scissors would go a long way. If you like a thick gel mattress pad on your bed, you might get a good night's sleep, but no one in our party did. The living room furniture is comfortable and the long dining table is nice, but if anyone is sitting at the dining room table there's no room to move.
There was a water leak all over the floor of the kitchen when we arrived. It was taken care of promptly though. There was garbage under the sink, dirt in the bath tub and large stains on the carpet. Some spot cleaning would help. Don't expect the whole carpet to be cleaned. Just surprised and disappointed by the lack of attention to detail. It would be helpful to have a sensor light at the front door for when guests arrive after dark. I had to use my phone flashlight to see the lock. Turning the heat on the day guests arrive would be nice also. Because of the water problem and the cold house, we left for 2 hours until both could be remedied. It was a beautiful spot and things went pretty well otherwise. You might want to consider converting one of your bathtubs to a shower for older guests.
I am sorry that you were disappointed. I apologize that the waterline leaked during your stay. Please remember that the maintenance man was there and gone within an hour, and cleaned up everything, removing the used materials that the cleaners had left; they usually don't make such mistakes. Again, I apologize. We have the carpets in the entire house cleaned quarterly, and they were cleaned just after you left, so I am sorry for the bad timing. The debate between a tub with a shower, or just a single shower (omitting the tub) is a difficult one, as many people still prefer the option of having both. We, therefore, have kept both full baths with the tub/shower combination rather than changing one or both to a stall shower only. Your idea for a motion sensor light is a good one! We will have the serviceman make the change!
Great view and location. In good shape.
Great stay and Lake access is perfect.
Thank you please come again
