About Melinda Bucy

Upon our dad's passing six years ago, my sister and I inherited this property. Our Aunt, whose parents purchased the property in 1961 is in the photo with us as we shared the day at a bridal shower. We've enjoyed years of celebrations and created lots of wonderful memories.

What makes this house unique

The view captivates your attention and adds a smile when you take your first step out of your vehicle. You get the cozy, warm, welcome feeling as soon as you open the sliding door to the house. Fun place to relax with family and friends. Sweeping view of the lake and Mt. Baker in the distance. Covered deck for reading, or watching boaters and swimmers. Just over the hill from I-5, quiet, peaceful.

A great place for a family getaway

  • 4 of 5

The large windows in the living room gave us a beautiful view of the lake. We all enjoyed the house, yard and dock.

One of the highlights of our trip to Washington!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place!

We wanted my 14 year old granddaughter to see where her Poppa grew up. After a day of travel through airports in Atlanta, Panama City, St. Louis and Sea Tac and two days of sightseeing in Seattle, we. were ready for rest.and relaxation. Our days on the lake were just what we needed. We arrived to find several nice surprises and were amazed at how they had gone above expectations to make us feel at home. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. The kitchen and bath had supplies that we did not even use. Our top priority in picking a place is cleanliness and the cottage at Big Lake was spotless. Some of our favorite pastimes there were gazing at the beautiful view of the lake and Mt. Baker while relaxing on the large but cozy porch, kayaking on Big Lake and sitting around the fire ring after dark roasting marshmallows for s’mores. We enjoyed our dinner. at nearby Big Lake Grill and breakfast at Big Lake Grocery & Cafe. We spent three wonderful days making memories for our family.

Great lake and cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for four nights and had a great time. The cabin is nicely outfitted and has a very large great room with a panoramic view of the lake and a fantastic deck where we spent our evenings. The cabin was very outfitted with fans, towels chairs and everything else you could think of including spare tooth brushes and other toiletries.

Melinda was very pleasant and helpful and was always available when we needed assistance.

Big lake is a very warm lake but is also very busy. If you are boating, it gets very congested and the water ends up getting very choppy. We would not hesitate coming back and probably will next year.
