About the property

Enjoy your own private lake! Known for its cozy and quiet atmosphere, Cain lake is the perfect place to getaway and enjoy the beauty of nature and still be only 15 minutes from town (Bellingham or Burlington). You can fish bass or trout in this stocked lake or swim/paddle out on the calm water (no gas powered boats). Only ten minutes from Lake Samish or Lake Whatcom for skiing/tubing which border champion golf courses. 45 minutes from the Tulalip Resort and Casino (Seattle Premium Outlets) and an hour to Seattle or Vancouver. Perfect for a week away with the family!

About Joseph Vaupotic

I grew up an hour from Cain lake and spent summers at my aunt's place (the yellow house across from us). I dreamed of owning this house since I was a little girl and I am so happy to be able to take my kids for a swim and make new memories!

Joseph Vaupotic purchased this house in 2010

What makes this house unique

The house with three levels reminded us of a playhouse. We fell in love with it immediately. We could envision the pool table, lounging in the living room as the fog clears off the lake in the morning and having breakfast overlooking the water.

wonderful lake house!

  • 5 of 5

wonderful house for relaxing/playing by the lake. many boats and floats to play with. lots of kids' stuff in the house (books, toys, games, high chair, pack n' play). we saw a bald eagle dive and catch a fish. great location to use as a home base for day trips to the mountains, islands, etc. loved it!

Terrific family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our three children (ages 3, 8, 10) and two grandparents during the last week of July and had a fantastic time. The lake was amazing! Everyone had a really fun time swimming and using the kayaks. The kids enjoyed fishing off the dock every single day we were there. The house was very well laid out for all of us and we had tons of space. Kitchen was stocked very well with basic amenities. The pool table and dart board was a plus and kept the kids entertained when they needed to cool off from the sun. We took in a race at the very close (10 min drive) Skagit Speedway on Saturday night. The drive down from Vancouver, Canada was very quick and we were surprised how secluded you felt with being only a short distance from the I-5. Our interactions with the owners were fast and exceptionally courteous!

Perfect Lake House Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our week at this lake house! Weather wasn't ideal for swimming, except for our last day there. House is large and well equipped; having a car is a must. Would not recommend this house for older folks who have trouble with steps! Owners are very accommodating and easy to work with. Loved monitoring the resident bald eagle's activities every day!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the time we spent at Cain Lake. It was perfect for relaxing, swimming, and using all the lake equipment at the house. The house is large, clean, well equiped and has a beautiful view of the lake. I would recommend this property to everyone.

It was so easy to make arrangements with the owners. They love the property and want to share the experience of Cain Lake with others.

The Best Cabin on the best Lake but don't tell anyone !!😆

  • 5 of 5

We had the great fortune to get to spend a week in the best cabin on the most beautiful lake you could ever hope for!!

I could go on and on but do yourself a favour and you will have an amazingly relaxing, carefree time with all the amenities and more - pool table, dart board, kayaks and surprisingly fun pedal boat not to mention floaties of every size - heaven for all ages !!

We are hoping to return as often as possible so don't want them to get too busy but had to write this review as a very experienced cottage renter - this gets top marks !!!

This home was amazing! It had everything anyone could need in a spacious, beautiful, and relaxing setting. All utilities worked perfectly and the home was spic and span clean with all manner of modern amenities included. No worries in this home: luxuriate and feel at home! Owners were extremely friendly and accommodating, as well.
