About Gaylene Peterson

Our family lives in Gig Harbor and we love it here. It is such a wonderful community and has everything we need. We have three children, and our youngest, Charlie, is who we named our lake home after. My husband and I both work locally. I am a teacher at a local school. Someday, we plan to retire in this beautiful home and stay in this amazing community.

Gaylene Peterson purchased this house in 2014

Why Gaylene Peterson chose Gig Harbor

We love this property! We bought it from our good friends after spending many years sitting on the beautiful deck and playing in the water with them. We have already created the best memories right here and want to create many more. We plan to someday live here because we just can not think of any place we would rather be.

What makes this house unique

Although there are many local amenities, you do not need to leave the Cabin at all to have a wonderful vacation. Stock up at Costco on groceries (about 10 minutes away), and pack your bathing suit and toiletries and then enjoy playing at the lake.

Provo, Utah

The perfect place for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We love the water, so when we opened the front door and saw the lake and dock, we were in heaven. We didn't want to leave. We will definitely try and rent here again.

Great Event Space

  • 4 of 5

The open floor plan and spacious patio made this a great house for our family party, and then the 6 of us spent the night. The kids loved the pool toys and the adults enjoyed the blackberry bushes. Nice quiet lake.

Good accommodation.

Odor in the master suite...smoke? Mold? No corkscrew for wine opening.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that you felt there was an odor in the bedroom. A jet in the master suite was leaking recently. The carpet did get wet and maybe that is what you noticed. I have not noticed any, but I will certainly check and take care of the problem. The carpet is being replaced soon. I take pride in how the house is kept, so I am so sorry that you were disappointed.
