LAKE CRABAPPLE, LOG HOME

Marysville House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Nestled in the woods among giant majestic cedar trees on the peaceful shore of Lake Crabapple is the setting for this gorgeous get-away vacation home. Surround yourself in rustic luxury in this beautiful custom 2 bedroom, 1 & 1/2 bathrooms, log home.

An easy day trip to Seattle, Canada, and San Juan Islands. Less than 5 miles to Outlet Mall Stores, Casinos, Salt water beaches, hiking trails and world class golfing.

Year round, you can spend your days, watching the Osprey, Bald Eagles, Blue Heron, Deer and Otters and many other wildlife.

During the warmer months; you can relax in the hammock or quietly paddle the canoe with your fishing line in the water waiting for a hungry rainbow trout. Enjoy sunbathing on the dock or take a refreshing dip in the lake. Share stories and create memories while stargazing around the firepit. Listen to the frogs while relaxing in the hot tub.

During the cooler months, we offer generous amounts of hot cocoa and teas and cozy blankets for peaceful days and nights while observing migrating waterbirds and winter wildlife from the warmth of this log home. You can soak in the hot tub, watch DVD's, play board games or curl up with a good book and someone that you love in front of the wood burning fireplace.

Bring your own food as the kitchen is fully equipped and there is a propane barbecue waiting for you on the deck. Many food staples are already provided along with many little extras.

My husband Bruce and I have lived on Lake Crabapple for over 20 years.

We have have a passion for creating and performing arts. Bruce and I have been together for over 30 years, and have raised thee beautiful children.

We love to travel and to learn about people and their cultures.

We are true animal lovers and have many pet 'family members.'

We enjoy spending time with our friends and family, and most of all, with each other.

Owner Jennifer Meyers purchased this house in 2005

Over the years so many of our own special memories that we hold dearly in our hearts are times that we have spent with our own family and friends at vacation rentals.

The wildlife, the peaceful quiet, the fireplace, the lake, and the beauty!

The rest of the world is so conveniently close by.

Communal property use and large free roam growling barking dog

  • 2 of 5
Future guests should know what to expect from this shared rental property. This vacation was ruined by the unexpected fact that it was 'communal use property' and the 'live with it or you will find your belongings outside' interactions with the owner. That and three nights of being awoken by firecrackers between 1-2 am and music blasting from the house across the lake until 5am, as well as fireworks shot off and music blasted at times during day directly across the lake.

We arrived to my mom being scared by a large barking, growling dog a few feet away at a neighbour's home when she stepped into the patio. My mom has a very fearful of dogs after being bitten in the past by a large dog. A dog next door growling and barking should be manageable with a leash as the solution.

Two dogs have free roam unattended of the three properties with this rental in the middle. The owner refused to ask her neighbours to leash their large dog and threatened to remove our belongings and lock us out the second night. We spoke to the neighbours ourselves the first night, had leash agreement. The next day seems they spoke to the owners unhappy about leashing the dog & this owner came over and reacted very poorly - only apologizing after I spoke to her neighbours again -at her request!

Renters should know in advance and decide for yourself if the situation would work for before arriving because concerns over the fear of the roaming dog were dismissed.

We were left with no choice but to agree to the dog having free roam on occasion with warning provided to us verbally the dog was coming out. No other rentals had vacancy within 3 hrs drive - I looked after night 2.

As guests we felt totally powerless in the situation even though the rental was not meeting expected exclusive use.

The next 3 nights we were abruptly awoken by fireworks at 1-2am and music blasting music blasting until 5am including sometimes during the day.

The owner did not communicate anything to us regarding the continued disturbances night after night.

Take note the cabin is also sandwiched in between the two homes ten or so feet on either side and this makes for close to zero privacy along with the 'communal' space style functioning as we were told about upon arrival. So make sure that's a comfortable rental arrangement for your party, because you can expect you will be sharing your rental space, and every conversation as the homes are very very close together and nothing is private.

Owner's Response: Melissa I truly apologize and have to say that I am surprised.
We have never received a complaint about the 11 year old golden retriever "Lulu". Lulu will usually bark at people with a waging tail from her confined deck when they first arrive. Then on occasions when Lulu meets our guests she always acts like a normal Golden Retriever and her gentle loyal nature shines through as she did while your mother was petting her. We all thought that you were very comfortable with the arrangement that your husband had suggested of our neighbor checking with you before letting Lulu outside to use the yard so that your mother wouldn't be "surprised". The dogs are kept in by an invisible fencing system. As advertised, we are a pet friendly facility with very strict rules.
The three separate homes are situated in such a way as to provide upmost privacy. The gazebo deck and hot tub are only barely visible by someone in the yard or in the lake. We take pride and are very respectful in the privacy that we offer. Normal talking is not something that we can ever make out or even want to hear any more than you could hear us talking from our own yards and decks.
The Lake Crabapple Log Home does have it's own dock and beach. The fact that we offered you the use of our larger beach was for the comfort of your handicapped father and family to have more spacious access getting in and out of the lake. Our neighbors are very generous about offering the use of their own dock and beach. Our neighbors are truly wonderful and always have enjoyed our guests. This sharing was never to be confused with a communal property.
Your husband told us that he loved our rental. I offered you a choice to leave for your unpaid three day portion of your stay. I would not let you stay for free of charge. Your paying the balance owed, making comfortable arrangements with our neighbors, your choosing to stay, and your even hugging me, I truly assumed that everything was OK and that all issues were resolved.
We were not aware of any disturbances that had occurred across the lake until now. Our lake is usually very quiet and peaceful. I'm sure that you can understand that anyone that lives on a lake or in a very rural neighborhood is going to occasionally but very rarely make noise. I will mention it on our community forum newsletter.
I truly apologize. I want all of our guests to be comfortable and happy and to take home wonderful memories.

Wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about how wonderful our experience was at the cottage!!! Jennifer (the owner) was so responsive and easy to deal with at every stage. I was nervous about finding a place from across the country but it was everything we hoped for and more! The cottage is spacious and the view gorgeous! Even on the grey NW days it was magical. The cottage is so well stocked, they have thought of everything. We had such a wonderful experience and the cottage was a huge part of that. Thank you!!!

Idyllic getaway -so close yet so far away!

  • 5 of 5
To be about 15 minutes away from such activity (outlet mall, Cabella, casino, Target & Costco) yet while here all we heard were birds, crickets, frogs and our dog Gus** swimming then snoring! I read two books while here and what an ideal time. Jennifer and Bruce are the greatest hosts; there if you need them otherwise you are there to relax and enjoy Crabapple for what it is;an idyllic restful getaway. We WILL be back soon ** clumber spaniel who swam for the 1st time here and enjoyed it...

4th of July

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Lake Crabapple over the 4th of July this summer. It is convenient enough that family members could come and go all week. The Cabin and setting are beautiful. Jennifer communicated with us about what to expect ahead of time and when we got there it was even better than we had hoped. Bruce and Jennifer are exceptionally welcoming and accomodating. They were there when we needed them and invisible when we were ready for privacy. The cabin is beautiful and had everything we needed presented for us to use with ease. We made many memories and look forward to returning year after year. Thank you!

Perfect family reunion

  • 5 of 5
We rented the log home to be near our family in Everett. It looked great, so our family (5 adults plus a baby, plus two dogs, total) decided to join us for most of the time we were there. It was perfect. There are so many nice touches....a canoe, swing seat, beautiful deck, indoor fireplace & outdoor fire pit, great fishing dock , hot tub, that make it feel more like a resort than just a cabin. And...how great to have a washer & dryer right there, coffee & expresso machine, barbecue,etc. The view from the living room, dining room & kitchen is spectacular, so you can just sit and look at it rain on the lake and still have a great time. This is a beautiful home , with many designer touches and we had a wonderful family time here.
