You have the entire main house of a lake house with a private entrance. 3 bedrooms (6 beds) , 2 bath, with a huge open kitchen and living room, and washer/dryer in unit, direct access to the lake with a dock. Enjoy 1600 sq ft of private space. Newly renovated with dramatic high ceilings with skylights, and a gorgeous view of the lake is right outside of your window. Bedroom is set up as: Master (1 queen bed), 2nd bedroom (1 queen bed), 3rd bedroom (2 sets of bunk beds: 4 twin beds). The main house can accommodate up to 8 people. I also have the downstairs unit (VRBO Listing #818275) that can be also rented, which can accommodate 6 people.
The house has it's own private lake access with a dock. The lake is Steel Lake, and they release about 5000 rainbow trouts at the end of April (or when the fishing season starts), so you can fish from the dock during April to October (changes slightly every year please verify, fishing licence required which can be obtained at a sporting store).
Both the main house and the downstairs have separate private entrance with private patio areas. The backyard is a shared area (between the upstairs and downstairs) as well as the dock and lake access. No loud parties in the backyard as this is a shared area.
Other Things to Note:
Although the house has a dock, no boats or watercrafts are offered due to liability issues. You are welcome to bring your own kayak/blow up boats, etc (no motorized boats allowed on this lake).
I rent out both the main house (this unit) and downstairs unit (VRBO Listing #818275). If you have lots of people consider renting both. The mainhouse has lots of lights and tall ceilings with a view of lake, the downstairs is darker because it's half basement level. Because of the layout, some of the things are shared between the two units (like the driveway, and the backyard and dock). And also you may hear the noise, footsteps or feel the presence of the people in the other unit. If you need complete silence and privacy, this house may not be for you. Also the house is about 15 min drive away from Seattle Airport, and some flights fly above the Pacific Highway, which is a major local road near by. When you have all the windows closed, you don't hear much airplane noise, but if this is a problem, the house is not for you. There are two full bathrooms in this house, but the house was built some years ago so each of the bathrooms are pretty small. They both have bathtubs, but if you are looking for a house with a huge bathroom suite, this is not the one. Finally, the driveway is pretty steep. If you are not comfortable backing out of an inclined driveway, this house is not for you (I am not the best driver but I just back out onto the side of the road first, and then marge onto the S 304th st, and it's ok). This unit has its own washer/dryer in the unit. It is new (as of 2017) from Sears, a stackable type with dryer on top of the washer, so it is smaller than the stand-alone full sized washer. Having the washer/dryer in the unit is definately convenient, but if a small sized washer is not your style, this house is not for you... Also the house has lots of Ikea furniture, and if this bothers you the house is not for you... I am trying to disclose everything that people have ever pointed out in the past. My house is not perfect by any means, but at a reasonable price, it does offer a gorgeous setting right on the lake, great kitchen and living/dining area for a big family, and all the photos posted are recent and true. We spend a lot of TLC making this our deam house on the lake and I am very pleased to share it with your family! I live out of state so I am not personally there to talk to you, but all the people involved (cleaners, maintenance staffs) try to do their best so you can have a great stay. So please do not hesitate to let me know if you need anything and we will do whatever we can to improve your experience (or if you are not happy, I will give you a refund so you can stay at a hotel room down the street).
In the backyard and the dock, swim suit or clothing required, even for children. This is a family place and in order for everyone to enjoy the lake please follow the rule. The back yard and the dock is a public domain.
