About Barbara

I'm a Seattle native and grew up in the Magnolia area. Went to Queen Anne high school and the University of Washington. Married my college sweetheart 30 years ago and have 2 awesome kids in college. I love the outdoors, skiing, hiking, soccer and football. Also a proud owner of two adorable, precocious huskies.

Barbara purchased this house in 2000

Why Barbara chose Lakebay

My husband and I built this home in 2000. My extended family spent our holidays out here and I learned how to waterski in the warm waters of Von Geldren Cove. This is a special place and one I wanted to share with my children.

What makes this house unique

The Cape Cod style gives the home a casual elegance, yet beachy feel. We wanted it to eminate a Nantucket feel and style. The 100 feet of waterfront is perfect for boating, swimming, barbecuing or digging clams. The Von Geldren Cove is calm, warm and fun to swim across or waterski in. The fresh air calms your soul and allows you to sleep soundly surrounded by the singing birds and beautiful sunsets.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with all our kids. Barbara was a fantastic hostess responding to any questions we had before our arrival. The house is quite nice, the beds are comfortable and we truly felt at home. We all agreed this is a place to come back to in the summer.

Gorgeous property and so comfy!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time even though it rained during our stay. We found it perfect for our family bonding weekend. Everyone had a good nights rest on the comfortable bedding. We made ice cream and it was fun getting everyone involved. This property is well worth recommending to our family and friends.

Great cottage with amazing location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful and was fully stocked with everything we could have needed. Barbara was an excellent host and made sure our stay was perfect. Any questions we had were immediately answered and check in/out was so easy. We really enjoyed the grounds and the kayaks. Our two teenaged boys even had some luck fishing.

We loved that the property was pet friendly. We have a Saint Bernard cross and we sometimes have difficulty locating a rental that will allow his size. Not only did Barbara welcome him but she also had a tie out for him while he was in the yard. He had a great time laying on the deck, walking on the beach and wading in the ocean.

We really couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. It was exceptionally clean, linens were lovely, kitchen had everything, beds were very comfortable, yard/grounds were gorgeous, super quiet and close enough to town for groceries but not close enough for noise or traffic.

We are already talking about renting again. Thank you Barbara for sharing your wonderful property with us.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property for three nights. There were eight of us, in town for a wedding. We loved the house and property. Spacious inside and out - plenty of seating and a great deck for hanging out. Beach right outside the door was great! One of our couples slept in the den, and had to go through the master bedroom to use the upstairs bathroom. Not a big deal for our group, but could be for others. Kitchen was well equipped. Cute, beachy decor! All in all, we loved the house and it was perfect for our situation!
