About the property

6 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath With 100 Feet Of Private Lakefront And Landscaped Grounds

This spacious 5,770 square foot home sits on the shores of scenic Lake Sawyer with over 104 feet of private waterfront.

This inviting home is both luxurious and functional with an open floor plan that showcases beautiful panoramic views of the lake. Walk through the artfully landscaped front yard and make your way to the water where you can swim off the dock, take your ski boat out, kayak or go fishing. Most guests should expect to see passing eagles with a nest within a quarter mile of the house.

The house is ideally suited for larger groups that are looking to take advantage of the adventure of the lake by the day and relax and enjoy scenic views by night. The open floor plan of the kitchen, deck, and dining room allows your family and friends to enjoy each other’s company while making home cooked meals with professional grade appliances. The kitchen features a double oven, a 6 burner gas stove top and large grill on the porch.

The private dock conveniently has a covered space to park your boat and the boat launch is only 2.5 miles from the house. The lakefront has both a shallow and deep end great for beginners and advanced swimmers. Try you paddle board or kayaking skills with equipment provided. After swimming, rinse off in the heated outdoor shower before sunbathing on the spacious dock. Finish off your night by making a bonfire and watching the sunset over the lake.

The house additionally features an attached apartment that can be used as an extra bedroom with indoor access to the main house or it can be locked and used as additional living quarters. The apartment includes its own full bathroom, equipped kitchen and pullout hide-a-bed. The main floor of the house allows access to all primary house amenities including the master bedroom. Four of six bedrooms display gorgeous views of the lake and the house sleeps 15-19 comfortably.

No pets.

Includes Wi-fi.

About Lauren Landis

Our family has been a part of the Lake Sawyer community for over 40 years as both a resident and a local business owner. As we no longer use our house as a primary dwelling, we have decided to share our home with others.

Lauren Landis purchased this house in 1994

Why Lauren Landis chose Black Diamond

Our family has called Lake Sawyer home since 1967. The lake is very near to our hearts and our hope is that we can provide an accommodating space for our guests to make memories and experience the beauty and adventure that Lake Sawyer has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Lake Sawyer is a gem in our community. The lake provides both adventure and peaceful views. There are designated daily speeding hours where you can pick up the pace and tube, ski and wakeboard. At any time of the day, you can go fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming or take a boat cruise to see the beautiful scenery. The house conveniently has a private dock with a covered space to park your boat. At the end of the day you can sit on the deck and BBQ a meal while watching your kids play in the lake below or make a bon fire beside the lake while watching the sunset. The house sits on over an acre and the backyard is great for a game of croquet.

A comfortable and spacious home, perfect place for a group gathering!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect space for 8 friends who get together in the Tacoma area once a year. There were plenty of comfortable beds for everyone and the kitchen was well-equipped. The view of the lake was lovely. We had everything we needed and would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great time at this house. The owner was a pleasure to work with and the place is very well cared for. The main floor has a big kitchen with a huge dining table and is just perfect for group meals. We had so much fun cooking together and eating together. All with an amazing view of the lake. I definitely recommend this place. Everyone in our group commented on how nice the place is and I got lots of compliments for being the one who booked it.

Wow! What a great place for family get together. Lots of space for every age. Beautiful venue.

  • 5 of 5

First impression was WOW this place is great! Everyone enjoyed this property! The kids had a ball with all the water activity. Bringing a boat for water sports is a must. Grandma & Grandpa enjoyed watching everyone enjoy from the deck. We even got Grandma down to the fire pit (by wheelchair)for a wonderful family experience. We played games, had lots of food and just overall enjoyed your place. The TV never was turned on :)

Note: We had some difficulty with the sound system. We couldn't get it to work. The only complaint as we are all coffee drinkers, was that the coffee maker was very slow....really slow in brewing the coffee :). Oh and when the power went out. The instructions said something about a generator. Sorry about having to call you. It was only out for a short while we made it work. It was dark in the bathrooms though :)

Thank you again...wonderful place.

Beautiful Lake front home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the house for ourselves and extended out-of-state family. We were in Washington for our daughter's wedding in Maple Valley. The house was more than we expected and accommodated all of us nicely. The grounds are so well maintained. The house was so comfortable. I heard the term "Homey" so many times. My daughter and son-in-law brought out their boat and everyone got to enjoy the lake even more. I would love to stay again.
