About the Property

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and sleeps 8

'Herron House' is located on a private island in the South Puget Sound area. Visiting the island includes a ten minute ride on the 'Charlie Wells' from the ferry dock at Lakebay, as the island is only accessable by private ferry. Although the peace and tranquility of the island may make you feel as if you are a million miles away from the rest of the world, in fact you are only a short distance. You can take day trips to Seattle as it is just over an hour away. The island is about a thirty minute drive from the town of Gig Harbor, Tacoma, and Port Orchard. It is a very small island and there is no store, so pack what you will need to relax and enjoy.


Experience the tranquility of island life. Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views while you watch bald eagles soaring over head. 'HerronHouse sits atop a hundred foot bluff that gives you wonderful views that go on for miles. This newly constructed two thousand square foot home is the perfect island retreat.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why the Owner Chose Lakebay, WA, USA:
We fell in love with the island during our first visit. We purchased this wonderful property on our second. The island is an enticing place and our south beach views are spectacular. There are many beautiful islands to visit in the area, but Herron Island is a unique gem.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view is panoramic and seems to go on forever. We love sitting on our decks and watching eagles soaring by above, or hoping to get a glimpse of an orca below as they swim by.
