OUTSIDE THE HOUSE:
Property located on half acre. Medium bank walk to private dock for fishing, lounging, or tying your boat up to. Use of 16 foot 3-person canoe included (note that amenities section below says "kayak/canoe"; however that is a preset category we can check, and we only have a canoe). 2 fire pits (one in front yard and one on waterfront). Grassy area (approximately 45 foot by 15 foot) on bulkhead waterfront (weather permitting – during high rain season, the water levels are variable and can impact the bulkhead landscaping). 8 foot x 45 foot covered deck overlooking lake with log swing. Hammock overlooking lake. Large propane BBQ. Table and chairs on deck (new patio set since picture was taken).
Lake (approximately 270 acres and 10 miles of shoreline) stocked with bass and trout. Lake split into a speed boat area and no-wake zones; house is ideally located near speed area, but on no-wake zone. Also conveniently located near boat launch.
Wildlife can be seen throughout the year, including bald eagles, owls, otters, heron, hawks, and a variety of birds. Hummingbird feeder with regular visitors.
IN THE AREA:
Approximately 100 miles of running/biking trails in area (Ranier-Tenino trail, Chehalis Western trail). Shopping, dining, theatres, and full city amenities within 15 minutes (Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater, and Yelm). Skiing at Crystal Mountain, White Pass, Snoqualmie Pass, and Stevens Pass (all within 1.5 to 3.5 hours). Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helens, the Cascade Mountains, and the Olympic Peninsula all provide great hiking, camping, and wine tasting (all within 2 to 3 hours). A quick trip to Seattle's Pike Place Market, Space Needle, Seahawks, Mariners, etc. is only 45 to 60 minutes away. Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM) is conveniently located about 15 to 30 minutes away.
From time to time we have stocked the house with fishing poles, camping chairs, life jackets, etc. Some of these items may be there during your stay; however, they tend to get lost, stolen, broken often enough that it's hard to keep them stocked all the time.
550 square foot (of the 3,000 total) storage / shop area.
