Overview

Lakebay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bath lake house with Northwest lodge feel

*****Scroll down for more information on our Low Discounts for smaller groups or couples***

THE MOOSEHEAD CABIN is the perfect place to get-away with friends and family. Nestled on the north shore of a beautiful, quiet lake, with 10 private acres of surrounding meadows, forests, wetlands and beautiful views, you will feel like you are at your own private resort--yet it's only a short 90 minute drive from Seattle.

Our clean, comfortable, and luxurious lodge has everything you need for a relaxing and fun get-away with friends or family. Whether you spend your time inside, or outside, everything is here!

The outdoor hot tub and heated pool are just steps from the front door (the hot tub is heated all year, and the pool is open from May to September). The wrap around deck is the perfect place to watch the eagles sore over the lake, or enjoy outdoor dining around tables that seat up to 12.

A short path through the trees leads to a private 60' dock, with a rowboat, kayaks and a canoe for guests to enjoy on the lake. The kids will have fun on the play structure, at the full size vollyball net, or playing catch in the meadow. At night, gather around the outdoor fire-pit next to the lake for smores under the stars.

On cold days, gather by a roaring fire in the giant stone fireplace (under the moose) to play games, watch a movie, or to read a book. Plenty of all 3 are provided.

Up the road 1/4 mile is one of Washington's best kept secrets...Penrose State Park...with wonderful salt water beaches on Puget Sound, and easy hiking trails through the woods, with spectacular views of Mt. Rainier at the end of the trail.

Lakebay Marina is also down the road, and is the 'happening place' during the summer with beer tastings, ice cream, and paddleboard rentals. It's also a great way to visit by boat, and short term moorage is available.

Come discover our little slice of paradise at THE MOOSEHEAD CABIN.

About Rebecca Schellings

Hello from The Schellings. Our family of 5 enjoys traveling and lots of activities. Since we have 3 boys, spending time outdoors is a MUST. That's why we love spending time at the Moosehead!

We built The Moosehead Cabin 2000. We wanted a place we could get to easily for the weekend (less than 2 hours from Seattle), and had lots of space for our boys to run. We also wanted to be on a lake where we could enjoy activities like water skiing, fishing, and canoeing.

When we stumbled on on Bay Lake, we knew we had found the place. Steve was nicknamed 'moose' throughout his school years, so we thought it would be fun to build a mini-lodge with a moose as the centerpiece. And so it began.

The Moosehead Cabin has been a labor of love, and we enjoy every minute we're there. We hope you do to.

Rebecca Schellings purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Rebecca Schellings chose Lakebay

Close to Seattle. Lots of privacy. Lake allows motorized boats. Great Southern exposure with lots of sun.

Good restaurants and shopping in charming Gig Harbor.

What makes this cabin unique

PRIVACY!! When we looked at other 'destination' places, most of the houses were all close together. We love the fact that no one sees us on our property, and we feel like we're miles away...yet really not at all!

The Moosehead Cabin is a DREAM!

  • 5 of 5

This place is an absolute dream. With all of the comforts of home, the backdrop of the the lake and the rolling acres of green make the Moosehead cabin a clear win for the entire family. Wake up the sounds of nature, grab your coffee and relax in the hot tub as the sunrises over the still waters.

The rooms are a dream ... carefully decorated, colorful, and comfortable. Upstairs, one rooms sleeps 6 (twin beds), another sleeps a few adults and children. Downstairs, the master boasts a California King that we were swimming in. The amenities will keep you cooking in the kitchen and entertained with games, movies, while your young ones run around in the abundant surrounding nature. Take a canoe out on the lake, roast marshmallows in the large outdoor fire pit, and let the toddlers master the outdoor play structure. There is something for everyone.

We stayed here in the winter, so the pool was not in business, but there is so much to do, that it was not missed. We took a few hours and drove just 15 minutes to Joemma Beach. Beautiful. We had the place to ourselves on a gorgeous sunny Saturday. There is another beach only 5 minutes from the lake house by car.

The Schellings were a dream to work with. From booking to check out, we had all of our questions fulfilled and felt as if we would be at home in their rental. We will be back, no doubt ... and would recommend the Moosehead Cabin to anyone looking for a peaceful get away. I just hope that they have room for us when we return!

Love it!

This is our second time visiting this cabin, and it definitely won't be our last. It's comfortable, private, and has absolutely everything you could want from a great getaway spot! The owner is incredibly pleasant to deal with. Already looking forward to our next trip!

Perfect retreat for family

  • of 5

I've rented many homes in the past fifteen years and have finally found the perfect place. Moosehead Cabin is spectacular. Private, lots of land and water access for kids to get outside and play. Board games, tv with satellite/cable, video games, fireplace, books, sound system, big, open kitchen, lots of beds, etc. inside. They even have infant items like bottles!

All of the bedding, pans, towels, mattresses, and dishes are higher quality - nothing worse than having either not enough pans or chintzy ones. Super clean and welcoming, too.

We'll need to reserve this home early and often to make sure we're this happy every time.

Ok so this place is basically amazing to the max!!

  • 5 of 5

Oh man, this place was so crazy amazing I don't even know where to begin! Lets start with the only downside, we rented this cabin in late fall and the pool was closed. Thats the only downside which is understandable. The pool being closed is motivation to rent again! The cabin was amazing, whoever picked out the taxidermy has amazing taste in furry dead animals! But seriously the view was great, the beds where super nice, the kitchen was like being on a cooking show, and the coozie was perfect. I will be staying at this place again personally and for work. We went here for a College retreat with our church, everyone had an amazing time!!! The lake is brilliant, the bonfire action was over the top, and the parking was plenty! If you are looking for a chill relaxing getaway in the woods or a nice fun respectable party spot this is for you!!! Cleanup and leaving instruction where basic. This place is going to be my new vacation spot! Thanks again!!!! Ps the lake is so beautiful I would rent this place based on the view alone!

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed our cabin so much! Yes, the pool is closed from October through April, but this is also when our rates are much lower, and deep discounts can be found. However, the hot tub is open all year for you to enjoy on cold days. Also glad you liked our authentic moose head (thus the name of our lodge), and the bear rug--both from BC, and both legally hunted there. We agree that The Moosehead Cabin is a great spot for retreats and gatherings with friends, but I would like to emphasize that it is NOT a party spot. We take great care to make sure that our guests are not here for a wild party, and that our home stays clean, and well respected....and as a compliment to our fabulous guests, we have never had a problem in our 15 years of renting our home.

Luxurious but comfortable, warm and inviting!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely fantastic! We are a local Seattle family who was looking for a place to escape with the kids for Labor Day. Well escape we did! I've never been in a place so remote (quiet, which for me was fantastic!). It's close to stores and such, but when you're there the only homes you can see are across the lake and there is not a sound to be heard (I think I heard my smile :)!). The place is perfect, nice furnishings, comfy beds, and clean - it definitely doesn't feel like a rental, it feels like you're at your friends house. The pool and hot tub were very clean and the kids were able to swim day or night as the water temp was 82 degrees. I would encourage any future visitors to bring what major food/beverages you want, the local store (10 mins away) is good but limited in selection/quality. We used the canoe and sea kayak, had awesome camp fires each night (great pit by the lake), we really couldn't find a fault with it. We feel lucky to have found it, Rebeca was fantastic to work with, and we will definitely put it on our 2015 calendar! If you don't like gazing out of a beautiful home at soaring eagles. diving king fishers, and fish hunting hawks - this place isn't for you :)! Highly recommended!
