About the property

Call Me to Talk Through Any Specific Questions You May Have.

Our Priest Lake "Lifetime of Vacation" home is located in Cavenaugh Bay on the East shore. This is not on the main East Shore Road as you may think. This is the original "Cavenaugh Bay Road" that dead ends at Cougar Creek. This makes it a sort of an unknown and quiet little road that doesn't go through beyond the creek. Another words, little or no traffic. The best restaurant/bar on the lake, as well as, the air strip are a convenient 10 minute walk. There is privacy on both the north and south sides of the house. About 320 feet behind is woods. The lake shore is about 40 feet in front. The shoreline is rocky but also has nice little sandy areas. The dock is actually quite large and stable compared to many on the lake. We have the best fire pit have seen on the lake that is convieniently located off the deck near the kitchen. It will accomodate large crowds and big fires. You will need to harvest your our burning wood out of the forest behind the house. There is plenty up there! We also have a fire pit down by the lake that we love but find a little less use for.

The home itself is quite practical for lake use. It has a bit of a 70's feel, but appliances, carpet, and linoleum has been updated in the main area. The kitchen, barbecue, , deck and fire pit are all nicely linked together so no matter the activity everyone is close.

The Bunk House is quite fun for all the children and helps give privacy between the adults and children after a long day on the water. Its quiet and will accommodate a kid movie, or rock out session. They can also sleep in better in the morning if desired. There is room for quite a few in the bunk house but depends on individual needs or expectations how many you actuall want to fit.

The property actually has lots of parking compared to other lots on our road. It is mostly flat or partially inclined. Loading in and out is a piece of cake.

The Best of All Worlds

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time and Rob is a fantastic "host". The property and layout is great for family togetherness, making new friends or quiet reflection - you can accomplish it all. There is more than enough to do with water activities, hiking, biking, ample games and relaxation after a full day. Our family loves to cook and everything we needed was there. Rob shared some great pointers of what to see & do before we arrived and added a personalized touch with the history of the property and surrounding area. One of our most enjoyable trips in a very long time!

Great time at the lake

  • 5 of 5

Dock and the bay were great. The bunk house was a plus the kids enjoyed time by themselves and the parents enjoyed that as well. Grill worked great and appreciated use of the kyacks on the water. Plenty of fun board and card games to enjoy with the family.

Priest lake

  • 5 of 5

A very nice location on the lake with lots of trees for shade and a nice dock for sun and swimming.

Rob, the owner was very helpful and worked hard to make everything ready.

The cabin is well stocked with everything you could need.

Thanks for the use of your cabin, we loved every minute.

We enjoyed the wonderful views from the living area and from the lounge chairs on the deck.

  • 4 of 5

The property is very secluded and private and offers activites for all ages. The boat dock was stable and our boat was secure even during the occasional storms. We enjoyed the fire pit and the firewood is plentiful on the hill above the property. Rob was excellent to work with and went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful experience. He is familiar with the area and provided valuable information about the lake and services available. We will return again and would recommend the property to anyone wanting to feel welcomed away from home.

I am new to VRBO and working on getting more pictures of the inside and updated both inside and outside. We have a great fire pit with logs around it right off the deck by the kitchen. The inside is much improved and finished with new carpet, lenolium, and appliances. It still has a bit of the 1970's retro as well as a great-room family feel to it in the main area.
