Overview

Lakebay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bath lake house with Northwest lodge feel

*****Scroll down for more information on our Special Low Winter 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!

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!

we loved our stay

  • 5 of 5
It was a wonderful place and a beautiful place. I wanted to say that I also loved the app for my IPhone "Glad to have you" . The wild life was a special treat and of course the pool (although it never got over 73deg. so it was a bit cold) and hot tub. Wonderful memories for our large family. The couple things I would say to help the owners. there are small things that need some upkeep, I know it must be hard with so many people renting but it is important to the next people that all things should be in working order if that is what they expect when they come. the other thing is the list of items that are available in the home need to be updated. We brought our Keurig coffee maker and popcorn maker because it didn't say they had them and surprise they they were :)

Couldn't Get Any Better

Couldn't Get Any Better
  • 5 of 5
This was absolutely the best. From every perspective it couldn't have been better. The beauty of it's natural surroundings, the beautifully designed and decorated cabin that was well equipped to meet all of our needs for comfort. The kitchen was fully stocked for cooking great meals. The beds were very comfortable and everything was very clean. There were so many fun activities available to keep the kids interested and happy. They spent most of their time swimming, boating, and fishing. At night the kids would come in and pick from the many games, books and videos available to them to finish out the evening. I especially liked the private deck off the master bedroom where I could retreat with a good book.We loved eating outside on the deck with the view of the lake. I could go on but suffice it to say. " It Couldn't get any better " Thank you for helping to make the summer of 2014 a very memorable time.

Relaxing time

  • 4 of 5
Wow, what a great place. We enjoyed all the amenities, went kayaking for the first time and saw a family of beavers playing along the water's edge. From the back porch, we watched eagles flying and fishing. We saw a mama deer who came back daily to eat the grass around the house, she brought her brand new twin babies to show us as we watched them struggle to learn how to walk, all from the back porch! We enjoyed the pool and hot tub and made s'mores in the fire pit. There were a few awkward moments like having the pool/spa maintenance guy show up at 8:30 at night until 9:30 at night. It was just me and my mother so it felt uncomfortable and awkward as well as having no warning whatsoever that a half dozen people would show up to mow the enormous lawn (we wouldn't have been caught out swimming in the pool for 2+ hours otherwise and were somewhat trapped by all the equipment, no one even acknowledged we were there and whether we'd like them to move at all so we could get out). I recognize that this is not a resort but a private home but some simple warnings and planning would have sufficed. Also, absolutely loved the Home Away App that was sent as a link, what a wonderful and very helpful tool, we really appreciated that. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Christina,
Thank you so much for the great review, and the feedback about our local maintenance people. Though we mention in the guestbook that the lawn crew might show up sometime during your stay (they are "weather dependent") and that you are free to ask them to come back at a more convenient time, we will have a talk with them about making sure to greet our guests and be a bit more considerate when they are there. Also, we do state that our pool maintenance person will come every other day, and usually in the evening (after guests have enjoyed the pool) to treat it with chemicals, and to clean and vacuum the pool. This is usually the best time for most guests. However, for those of you reading this, he is a retired local grandpa, and not a creepy guy by any means!!. Thanks, and we hope you come back again. Also, loved to hear that you saw the beaver family...we have YET to see them!
