About the property

60' sandy lakefront, this 1/2 acre lot is spacious with 4000+ feet of flat lawn

On the sunny side of the lake, this pristine property boasts 4 bedrooms (3 queen, 1 double), fully updated bath and a spacious 10x45 deck. With an expansive dock and boat slip, 4 kayaks + needed accessories and a spacious sandy beach, Lake Samish just beyond your front door. The lake includes a tournament slalom ski course, fishing and an incredible array of wildlife. Summer water temperatures reach into the high 60's for cool, refreshing dips.

The house is fully equipped with the owners staying somewhat regularly between rentals, meaning things like basic spices, condiments etc. are on-site. The cupboards are reasonably stocked with the staples. The utensils, dishes and pots and pans were purchased Costco new in 2016.

Please note that the property caretakers live in the daylight basement. These tenants have their own entrance that is separate from the main house offered in this listing. In addition, the dock is also shared with our neighbors to the south.

About Sarah Hall

I am the property manager for Seven Cedars LLC. The LLC owners are my wife, Cathy and our two nephews, Matt and Kevin. The property has been in the family since the early 1960's When it was first developed by Cathy's parents. We inherited it recently and have taken care to make it a jewel for short term stays for our guests.

Sarah Hall purchased this house in 2015

Why Sarah Hall chose Northwest & Islands

Peace and tranquility describes what I find most appealing about the setting. Looking out over the shimmering lake simply can't be beat. There is a vast array of birds including resident Eagles and cranes as well a beaver or two just down Friday Creek. A silky quiet kayak ride down the creek is a special event we do most every time up in early summer. After that the travel down the steam is more challenging due to lower water levels and lily pads.

Great time with the family

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house on the lake. Stayed with our daughter, her husband and our grandson and we all enjoyed the house. Plenty of room, nice kitchen, great deck overlooking the lake. Plenty of toys in the house and on the beach to keep our 3 year old grandson busy and happy. Nice sunset views. Kayaks and paddle boards. Covered parking for our 2 cars was great. Very comfortable and had a great stay. Huge fridge and freezer. Cooked numerous meals for ourselves and guests. Ate on the large deck with electric awnings a number of times.

fun place on quiet lake

  • 5 of 5

It was a lovely home on a quiet street and quiet lake. It was clean and comfortable and was also very near I-5 which gave you fast access. One complaint, and it is minor, is there is only 1 bathroom, albeit a very large bathroom, for the entire house with 4 bedrooms.

There is a couple, caretakers, who live in the lower level. We never heard them and seldom saw them, so have no worries about sharing the home with others.

Wonderful times swimming and playing

  • 5 of 5

It was great to swim, kayak, and play at the beach everyday. So awesome to pick the ripe blackberries along the road on our daily walks! Can't wait to come again!

Beautiful lake in a charming house

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay. We liked the retro vibe of the kitchen/dining area. The house was very clean. The big windows and deck were spectacular for viewing the lake. We watched eagles and herons fishing. We played in the lake with the kayaks and paddle boards provided and had an overall good time.

Great Lake house with everything you need!

  • 4 of 5

Our family visiting from Idaho loved the house, beach and all the outdoor gear available. They are already requesting another visit at the same house next summer! We were able to spend time on the water, having family meals and around the fire pit comfortably. Thank you for sharing your vacation home with us!
