This 3500 square foot, like-new, three-level, craftsman-style home is on Wildcat Lake, a scenic 45-minute drive from the Seattle-Bainbridge Island ferry terminal, or 10-15 minutes from Silverdale or Bremerton. The house works great for a multi-family vacation or reunion. There is a sitting area, bedroom and bathroom on each of the three floors, and the lower floor also has a second kitchen and dining area.
The home has a deluxe kitchen with granite countertops and many small appliances, a gas fireplace in the livingroom, hardwood floors, jetted Jacuzzi bath tub, 52” TV with blue ray/DVD player and DVD selection, Playstation 3 with game selection, and outstanding views. There are also musical instruments and an indoor full-size Stiga ping pong (table tennis) table.
Outside amenities include a large boating and swimming dock, canoes, kayak, paddle boat, row boat, hot tub, and lake-side fire pit. The lake is clean and quiet. A seven mile-per-hour speed limit means there are no noisy ski boats or jet skis, and means nice clean water for swimming and fishing. In addition to all the lake has to offer, the Green Mountain State Forest, less than two miles away, has many miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails.
We are a family of four who lives on Bainbridge Island. We purchased this house to have a place for our family and friends to enjoy good times together. We aren't able to live there full time, so we rent it during times we can't be there. Most of our guests are extended families looking for a house that is large enough to accommodate everyone and with plenty of things to keep all ages occupied.
We especially enjoy the lake activities-- swimming, boating, fishing, and exploring. We appreciate the warmth (in the summer) and cleanliness of the lake. We even, on occasion, go for a polar bear dip in the winter. After swimming, there is a hot outdoor shower and a hot tub for warming up. We also enjoy relaxing around the lakeside firepit, on the hammock, or at one of the several outdoor seating areas. In addition, we have fun with the indoor activities-- ping pong, video games, making music, watching movies, and viewing wildlife.
Because we spend a lot of time there ourselves, and enjoy entertaining, the kitchen is very well equipped for just about any cooking venture. An additional feature we really enjoy is the nearby hiking area. We can either walk from the house or drive about a mile to the trail head. There are magnificent views from the trail, including all the way to Seattle.
