In the summer, there is water fun for all ages including a private boat launch, dock with moorage, a graduated depth pool with large swim step for little ones, canoes, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and a paddle boat - all included in your rental. And when you are ready to relax, sit back and enjoy the views underneath the large shade fly covered patio or come inside and enjoy a movie on the 120-inch movie screen.

In the winter, this property is perfectly located just a short drive from Mission Ridge and Leavenworth. Whether your skiing and sledding on the snowhills or taking in the winter festivities at Leavenworth, you’ll love returning back to the log burning fireplace and cozy indoors of this beautiful retreat.

Smaller children will enjoy endless hours of fun in the bunkroom that comes fully stocked with toys and games. Outdoors is a play structure with swings and slide or take them for a ride on the paddle boat. Those seeking a more relaxed day can sit in the shade and watch all the lake and pool activity while taking in local wildlife.

You’ll enjoy cooking meals in a fully equipped chef’s kitchen or outdoors on the multiple gas grills.

About Darby

We are Washington State natives and owner's of a residential construction company. We have three young children and a desire to raise our children with an appreciation for family, community and faith in God. We built this home purely so we could could enjoy time with our family, friends and invite others into community with us.

This property has been a blessing to us. We are thrilled to be able to make it available to others so that they might have the opportunity to connect with family and friends in the same way we have.

Darby purchased this house in 2010

Why Darby chose Lake Entiat

This property is suitably named "Sunken Acres" because it is actually 12 acres, however, today only 2 1/2 acres remain above the water. Lake Entiat (also called Rocky Reach Reservoir) was formed following the building of the Rocky Reach Dam in 1962.

We were in search of the perfect property - not only for our family, but a place where our friends and community could all come together to connect and build memories.

We fell in love with property first and foremost because of its breathtaking waterfront location on a private little cove and the proximity to Seattle. Only 2 1/2 hours drive, it is easy to make the trip for a weekend getaway. The location boasts the amazing seasons of Eastern Wa with lots of snow in the winter and plenty of sun in the summer. We love that we can play there all year around!

The original property had a rambler that had been completely gutted inside. We decided to start over and design/build an amazing home that captured the views and was specifically designed for hosting large groups.

Everything you need for a fun, filled stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Sunken Acres and we're so glad we did! This home is very well thought out, with everything you'd want or need for your vacation. You've got kayaks, paddle boards and a paddle boat, and a wall of ski vests to use. There's a big screen theatre room, a huge, well stocked kitchen, two refrigerators, a pool, puzzles, games, lots of toys for little ones, and a great fruit stand across the street! Everything in the home was comfy and easy to use.....and What A Beautiful View! Thank you Darby for your quick responsive communications with us! Your kind, hospitality will not be forgotten. Blessings to you and your family. I hope we are able to return to your wonderful lake home in the future! FYI for boaters, it's best to bring a couple of 5 gallon gas cans for filling your boat. There are no gas pumps nearby on the water.

2nd year and once again fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property really does have everything that any group could want. The house is perfectly planned out, with easy to find instructions for all of the great features. The lake access is 2nd to none, boat launch gives you great easy access for the paddle boards or kayaks and having the dock in the water this time of year is great for fishing and swimming. Great patio with bbq and shade, heated and cooled pool and plenty of open space for outdoor games.

Our group loved it last year and had an even better time this year, we will definitely be back and would recommend it for any group or gathering.

Beautiful, well maintained home on one of the less used lakes on the Columbia River.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and 8 children thoroughly enjoyed our time at Sunken Acres. The amenities with the house are truly outstanding and the owner is very organized about the entire rental. Having our own boat launch, very nice dock and a pool are just a few of the niceties. I would highly recommend this home for any groups or families that enjoy being very active.

Thank you! Sunken Acres was the perfect place for our 8-day family vacation. The house is exactly as described, maybe even better! It is expertly stocked to keep everyone happy. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the bunk room and movie player. We had a delightful trip.

PERFECT PLACE FOR OUR WOMEN'S RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5

I recently hosted a women's retreat and this property was the perfect place! We easily slept 16 women in the house, and even with that many people, the house felt peaceful and not crowded. We cooked big meals for everyone and even comfortably fit all 16 of us around the huge dining table. I loved the attention to detail in the house. Not only was the house GORGEOUS, but everything there was so well thought out and organized. Every light switch was labeled and detailed directions for operating instructions for things like the pool, lake equipment, etc. made it easy for a large group to use it well. The pool was warm and inviting with plenty of seating around and we all had fun trying out the stand up paddle boards and kayaks on the lake. The property just felt like the perfect mix of fun and relaxation. Almost every women there commented on how awesome the house was, and so many mentioned wanting to bring their own families back here for a vacation. The owner was amazing to work with and I hope to definitely be back!
