BEAUTIFUL CUSTOM HOME ON QUIET LAKE

Tacoma House Rental Photos and Description

The downstairs bedroom, which is off of the living room, offers twin beds and very comfortable bedding.

Having moved up from Florida, we are still in awe of the Pacific Northwest. Its beautiful here. To have a cabin on such a beautiful lake and so convenient is a real blessing. Besides swimming and boating, our other passion is horses. We live on a small horse farm about 1/2 hour from the lake house.

Cindy Blair purchased this house in 2003

This property is a dream come true. That special home on a lake. To have that view from every window. It never grows old. Kayaking on the lake is fabulous. It's a meandering lake full of fingers and coves. I've seen an owl bathing and preening; otters playing and countless hours of the osprey fishing. There are plenty of bald eagles fishing too. But still, we are not far from all the city has to offer. There are miles and miles of bike trails, great golf courses, Puget Sound is 15 minutes away, hiking on Mt Rainer...so much to day..or you can just relax at the cabin. We have high speed internet and Comcast TV for those connected folks too.

Our cabin is a perfect retreat. Although you are convenient to Interstate 5 it is a world away. So, quiet and private and beautiful. Lake views from every window.

We often have families here to visit their soldiers at Joint Base Lewis McChord. It's a great home for entertaining. With the open floor plan there is plenty of room for everyone. In the Summer you can play on the lake. In the Winter you can enjoy the cozy radiant heat floors, jacuzzzi bath tub and large rock wall fire place.

This is a custom built home. The castle like front door was hand made by the owner, his father and brother including forging the hinges. It is massive. The rocks in the fireplace wall were gathered durring his travels abroad. Every detail was executed with care and love.

Spacious, clean and a great value

  • 5 of 5
The beautiful photographs of this property show the spaciousness of this cabin. But what they can't capture, is the true beauty of this finely crafted home, which can only be experienced by stepping inside.

It has a massive front door, which features custom-made hardware and enormous forged hinges, that swing easily with the touch of a finger. It provides a gorgeous view of the lake through a wall of glass. It has a beautifully crafted cathedral ceiling with exposed beams, and an expansive staircase that leads to the main bedroom in the loft. My wife and I are both in our early fifties so we were concerned about a loft bedroom. But we found the stairs very easy-to-walk.

The bedroom has plenty of closet space, two end tables and a very comfortable king-size bed. Looking out over the hand-crafted railing, you'll enjoy a view of the stunning stone fireplace, spacious living room and extraordinary kitchen area, as well as that spectacular view of Lake St. Clair.

The roomy kitchen is well-equipped with a gas stove and range, microwave oven, roaster oven, crock pot, coffee maker, toaster, toaster oven, refrigerator and dishwasher. The countertop and island are adorned with gorgeous granite. There are plenty of dishes, cups, pots, pans and silverware.

The living room area is equally roomy as the kitchen. It offers plenty of seating with two comfy couches and several alternate seating options with the four footrests that double as a coffee table, three woven straw stools that double as storage for comfy blankets, and the raised hearth of the spectacular rumford fireplace.

We rented in late December. So we were treated to the heated flooring provided by a radiant heating system, which made both the granite flooring in the living room and the wood flooring in the kitchen feel quite warm and cozy. The bathroom, which is also very roomy, has a pedestal sink and a wonderful jacuzzi bathtub with dual shower heads and comfortable built-in seat. There's also a washer/dryer combo unit that allowed us the convenience of packing a lot lighter than we typically do for extended trips.

The downstairs bedroom, which is off of the living room, offers bunk beds and very comfortable bedding.

The owner was very responsive in answering email and phone messages, and was also very accommodating to all of our requests. I would absolutely recommend this to a friend or relative, and am looking forward to my next stay in this amazing cabin.

Owner's Response: The cabin was custom built with no expense spared. There is a great dock and the lake is clean and beautiful. I wish they had an opportunity to enjoy the lake too. It was just too cold.

A Beautiful View and Unique Hand Crafted Home

  • 5 of 5
I was really happy to find this property online but I didn't understand how lucky I was until we arrived to find such a beautiful view and unique hand crafted home The owner went out of her way to answer my questions about the area and help me decide if her place was a good choice for me and my older dogs. It was a great fit and we all came home happy and refreshed. I've already sent the information on to a friend and I will definitely be back soon!

We stayed here instead of the Holiday Inn Express where the rest of the family was staying to celebrate our father's 90th birthday. What a blessing and comfort this "cabin" afforded us. We slept so peacefully, and the next morning were up early to kayak for a couple of hours on the lake before a gentle rain started (THANKS, Cynthia, for the kayaks and paddles and the other extra touches). Only one other person in a canoe on the lake, who told us about a bald eagle who lives here who he has seen merge with the water, in flight. Check out his wonderful website at "wecanoe.wordpress.com"…what a nice guy, and you may see a picture he snapped of us. We're not sure we can capture in words all of the many beautiful things about this place, from the magical twinkly lights on the path down to the cabin, the warm tiled and wood floors, the openness of the space, the switchback trail to the dock, the amply and generously furnished kitchen, or the way the cabin itself nestles perfectly into the land. What a great and sacred experience…we'll find a way to come back. THANKS!!!!

Owner's Response: I remember reading somewhere that there is no bad weather, just bad clothing. I'm so glad that folks with thin blood from Georgia can get out on the lake in March. They were pretty lucky, we are having some glorious days this month. The Seahawks are relining their nest and getting ready to raise another brood on the island across the lake. You can hear the babies peeping during the Summer and watch the hawks diving for fish to feed them.
It is so fun to see the awe on guest's faces when they first walk thru the castle door into the cabin. It always exceeds their imaginations and expectations. A real retreat, any season of the year.

Pure relaxation

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for everything, we had a most amazing time! The house was exactly
what we needed for a relaxing getaway. Weather on Friday was spectacular
and we spent the day out on the lake watching the eagle and lots of
woodpeckers. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a
cool cabin near Seattle.

Waking up to a full view of the lake every morning is the best!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you were able to enjoy the lake this time of year! The view is spectacular but it's even better when you can get out and enjoy it all. The kayaks are always ready, any time of year.

100% Perfect

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful and well-appointed home is the perfect get away on Lake St. Clair. It is located on a calm section of the lake, just opposite a pair of nesting ospreys. The outdoor patio includes comfortable chairs and a fire pit, and is a great vantage point for enjoying the lovely sunsets. The interior is roomy and inviting, and is remarkably dog-friendly. We really loved the slate floor, the soaring ceiling and the river rock fireplace. The kitchen is beautiful, and the view from the sink area was more than enough compensation for being on kitchen duty. We had good luck fishing from the dock, and fun paddling around the lake. The home is clean, well-maintained and the owner friendly and accommodating. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: I liked her comment about the view from the kitchen sink. The view is wonderful. Jody has booked for 2014. I love it when the guests consider it their vacation home. She lives in the area so her get away is just a few miles from her home. Smart thinking!

Fantastic Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
Our vacation to Washington was to spend Memorial Day weekend with my son who is stationed at JBLM. We were looking for hotels when we found this house. This house and our time spent with my son were beyond our expectations. The house is fabulous! We were able to cook together, hangout, fish together, watch the beautiful sunsets together. This house is very quiet and private and was perfect for our vacation. We will definitey stay again when back in this area!
