Expansive water views of the cove which is great for swimming, kayaking and safe for kids to play.

The beach is huge at low tide and perfect for beachcombers to find sand dollars, hermit crabs, crabs, eagles, herons, and the occasional seal. Children and young adults will love playing and swimming in the warm sheltered waters in front of the home or roasting marshmallows on the beach in the fire pit. You can launch your boat at a public ramp located close by, so bring your ski or sail boat and jet skis.

The kitchen and large pantry closet are well-stocked with appropriate cooking items, spices, condiments, baking items, basic foods, utensils, and 12 place settings of dishes.

Ten adult life vests are provided plus 2 children's and 2 infant vests.

The bathroom has a large shower with two handheld shower heads, sink and toilet. There is a full-size washer dryer in the hall closet with iron and ironing board.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Lakebay, WA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
