The Swisher Retreat is an amazing ALL season rental that sits right on beautiful Lake Washington. It is great for family gatherings, reunions, fishing weekends, girls weekends, bachelor parties, etc. Private, roomy, gorgeous location.

The main property has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths (master bath has jetted tub) and a huge, beautiful deck with a gas grill, facing the lake. The bunkhouse has two futons, a TV/DVD player, and is included in the rental.

The Swisher Retreat includes unlimited use of a pontoon and a fishing boat (seats 6-8) both with motor and gas. The property is on Lake Washington, but Lake Stella can be easily accessed via the channel with the fishing boat (included). Both lakes are excellent for summer fishing and ice fishing!

Also included are 2 kayaks, 2 paddle boats, and assorted tubes & floating air mattresses. Families with young children love the shallow shoreline for swimming, water toys included. There is a fire pit overlooking the lake and firewood is included. A huge, covered deck on the home (with plenty of comfortable seating) overlooks the lake.

For larger groups there is a lovely travel trailer with full hookups on the property. It sleeps 2-4 and has a kitchen area and bathroom, as well as air conditioning. It is available for an additional fee of $100.00.

This is a spacious property that has room for tents in the yard, yard games, plenty of shady areas, room for kids to play, and plenty of parking.

Wi-Fi, washer, dryer, dishwasher, central air conditioning, coffee maker, jetted tub in the master bathroom, water softener, towels, and a fireplace give this vacation property many of the comforts of your own home. We include many extras: soap, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, paper plates, paper towels, garbage bags, disposable aluminum pans, paper cups, coffee, flour, sugar, salt/pepper and other seasonings.

We offer a 10% discount to active and retired military personnel & active and retired law enforcement/firefighters. Please let us know when you book, so we can include the discount.

While you are here, visit local attractions like the World's Largest Ball of Twine!

Come to the lake and make some wonderful memories!

About Jill Swisher

I was born and raised in the area and am excited to share all that the Lake Washington area has to offer with you! I am the former owner of one of the most popular local restaurants and am now sharing my enthusiasm and hospitality with each person that rents my property. My family and I live just a hop, skip and a jump away on the family farm. Give me a jingle and I will share with you anything you want to know before renting.

Jill Swisher purchased this house in 1970

Why Jill Swisher chose Darwin

The property has been in the family for 3 generations. In fact, my mother started the area summer festival, Twine Ball Days, which the area celebrates every year in August.

What makes this house unique

This lake home is tucked in the woods away from traffic on a beautiful lake. There is a large lawn which is perfect for picnics, yard games and room for kids to run and play. The main feature is the lake. The views are awesome and the beach, pontoon, kayaks and paddle boats give you everything you need to enjoy your stay with us. The fire pit is an evening favorite and firewood is provided. We want you to have a wonderful time so please let us know if you have any questions about the property. If you are staying with us please let us know if you need anything while you are here.

Sincerely, Jill
