About Rahul Sood
I grew up in Calgary, Canada. I am a long time gaming entrepreneur, joined Microsoft, and eventually left to start another gaming company. I love the Pacific Northwest, there's so much to do here, I'm big into wakesurfing, wakeboarding, cycling, etc.
Rahul Sood purchased this House in 2008
Why Rahul Sood chose Lake Goodwin
We bought this house in 2008 and we'd drive from Calgary all the way to Seattle to spend a few months here at a time. Our kids grew up here, they love the lake. We taught all of our kids how to swim here, and they are now expert wakesurfers/wakeboarders. This property is something I purchased for my wife on her birthday, it means alot to us - and we'd like to share it with others.
What makes this House unique
The home is between Vancouver and Seattle. There is so much to up here - from spending days on the lake to visiting the casino, premium outlets, all the amazing restaurants, golf, tulip festival, whale watching, skiing, etc ... it's just an amazing place.

Fabulous place for a large gathering
This is an amazing place and worked really well for our large group of many families getting together for Thanksgiving. The pool and ping-pong tables were well used as was the hot tub. The place is very comfortable and cozy for a big or small crowd. The separate guesthouse is a real treat. Rahul, the owner was very helpful and easy to communicate with. He was very flexible to our needs and quick to respond to all of our questions. We highly recommend this house and hope to be back again next year!
Incredible home in a peaceful neighbourhood - the lake was amazing. Host was really friendly. Highly recommended.
It was so beautiful!
We almost liked doing dishes with the view of the lake to look at. ( :
The kitchen was one of the best stocked rental kitchens we have ever stayed in. All the things you could want, including an air popper and popcorn. ( :
The floaties for the lake were fun and there was enough space for all 16 people who came.
Thank you so much!
Gorgeous Lakefront Property
This property was perfect for our family reunion of 17 people! We had a few day trips planned throughout the week, and it probably wouldn't have disappointed us much if we stayed on the property more than we did. The view of the lake from the decks is spectacular morning, noon and night, the living and entertainment rooms are very accommodating, swimming in the lake is a lot of fun - especially the water trampoline - and refreshing, the hot tub is quite relaxing after a busy day, and the sound of the waterfall from the guesthouse rooms is wonderful to fall asleep to. The beds in the guest house in particular are so comfortable. There weren't quite enough pots, pans and utensils for our liking, but we made do. The owner (Rahul) was very responsive before and during our stay, and he made sure we had everything we needed - including snacks upon our arrival. We would highly recommend this property!!!
This lakehouse was perfect for our large group of four families!
The view walking into the house is just gorgeous! We spent our nights enjoying wine on the balcony and the gorgeous sunsets over the lake, as well as the beautiful large dock we enjoyed day after day. The kids loved the trampoline on the water (as did the adults)! The house was clean and well stocked with supplies which made it so easy for our stay. To enjoy this beautiful house right on the lake was just perfect for our reunion. The owners were so helpful and very quick to respond. We would definitely recommend this house! And this was by far the best place to be on July 4th!!!
Thank you so much Valerie, your group was amazing. You were a pleasure to deal with, communication was great.. Thank you for treating our place like it was your own! You are more than welcome to come back anytime if you'd like, we'd love to have you.
