On the quiet scenic Key Peninsula just 10 minutes from historic Gig Harbor, you'll find the Log Cabin Guest House surrounded by giant fir trees on Lake Minterwood. A truly romantic place to relax; canoe, kayak, or fish for trout; have bonfires lakeside, and enjoy the 8 person hot tub in nature.
Home to bald eagles and all types of birds, just minutes away from Penrose Point State Park and Joemma Beach State Park on Puget Sound where beach walks finds you all kinds of shells and interesting driftwood.
The cabin is cozy with a wood burning fireplace (wood and kindling supplied), a log queen bed in the upstairs loft as well as a massage area with a clawfoot soaking tub and full bathroom with a fabulous shower and french doors to a private balcony. Downstairs you'll find a second bedroom and bath that has a really comfortable double bed with full bath just across the hall, a fully stocked kitchen (including homemade granola, milk, juice, coffee & tea and huge amount of spices), 2 large decks-lower one has 8 person hot tub. The view is incredible, towering fir trees all around the cabin respond to the wind and it's an amazing feeling (especially in the hot tub!) Fresh oysters, crab, and salmon available just a few miles down the road. Great country restaurants nearby and a vineyard and lavender farm just down the road as well.
Centrally located to explore Gig Harbor, Tacoma, Seattle, Olympic National Park, Mt. Rainier, and up the peninsula to Port Townsend, Bainbridge Island, Hood Canal, and Sequim. Several great golf courses nearby including Chambers Bay which will be the site for the 2015 U.S. Open. Miracle Ranch is a camp for kids and that is just 5 miles from the cabin.
Get away from the hustle and bustle of life, go back in time, and enjoy the slow pace of a romantic era.
If you're very quiet you can hear your priorities rearranging themselves. ;}
If you are looking for a furnished temporary living arrangement - I am open to reducing the cost for a 3 - 6 month lease.

After 10 days of exploring the great Pacific NW we closed out our trip in your lovely lakeside cabin. We saw the Pacific ocean, rain forests, hot springs, breathtaking mountain views and much more but nothing more peaceful & tranquil than your little lakeside paradise. Thank you!
Years ago when I drove up to this little log cabin I felt I was home. To me it is quintessentially northwest style. It is very much my personality. My joy comes from sharing this with others that are in need of a quiet, quaint, old-fashioned feeling place to relax and de-stress. I love reading the comments I've received! I was a flight attendant for 20 years and travelled all over the world and I know the deep meaning of a peaceful place to lay your head. I am now a massage therapist. I still enjoy traveling so that's why I rent out this log cabin - as a means of continuing to explore the world and learn about other cultures. I love to photograph, write, and explore - especially on a bicycle!
I love the Key Peninsula! It is unique with a country feel but so close to the wonderful waterfront town of Gig Harbor and the cities of Tacoma and Seattle. You can easily reach Seattle within an hour either by driving or taking the ferry. The huge trees in the community of Lake Minterwood cannot be cut down so it will always remain the way it is now. These huge giant fir trees are a real plus when you're staying in a log cabin - in the summer they keep the area cool and when they sway in a wind storm you are reminded of how truly small you are in nature.
Canoeing and fishing on the lake is right out your front door, it is fairly normal to watch a bald eagle soar overhead, or a flock of birds land on the water together. The hot tub allows you to hang in nature and watch the trees sway overhead putting you in another world all together. The sun sets on the lake making it look like diamonds sparkling. Camp fires by the lake are memorable and it's just a few miles down the road to beautiful state parks and beaches.
The cabin is located right on a lake so you can fish for bass and trout or just canoe or kayak. About 5 miles down the road the Puget Sound is accessible via Joemma Beach state park and Penrose State Park where you can pier fish, clam dig and oyster hunt - very near Hood Canal, which is beautifully scenic. Seafood is abundant here! Horseshoe Lake & Golf course is located 5 miles from the cabin and there's a camp for kids there called Miracle Ranch. World Class Golf Course, Chambers Bay, where the U.S. Open will be held in 2015 is only 30 minutes away. Gig Harbor is 10 miles and has great restaurants, bars and antique shops with a great walkway that hugs the harbor with great views of Mt. Rainier. For skiers Chrystal mountain is about a 2 hour drive from the cabin. The hot tub and the view of the lake through the towering fir trees is unbeatable for true relaxation.
