LAKEFRONT, LODGE, HOT TUB, POOL AND PRIVACY JUST 90 MINUTES AWAY!

Lakebay Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3BR/2BA Lodge-Like Cabin, sleeps 12

Only 90 minutes from Seattle, '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 acres of surrounding meadows, forests and wetlands, you will feel like you are at your own private resort.

Our clean, well equipped lodge has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay for up to 12 guests. From stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, to the down comforters in the bedrooms, it's all here. Gather in the great room by a roaring fire in the giant stone fireplace (under the moose) for games, movies, or to read a book. Plenty of all 3 are provided.

The outdoor hot tub and heated pool are just steps from the front door (the hot tub is heated year round, and the pool is open in summers only). 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, paddleboat and 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 for smores under the stars.

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. Lakebay Marina is also down the road, and is the 'happening place' during the summer with beer tastings, ice cream, and paddleboard rentals.

Whatever you do....(or don't do)....you'll create wonderful memories at THE MOOSEHEAD CABIN. Come discover our little slice of paradise.

OFF SEASON--Talk to us about renting long term from October to March (month to month lease) for an AFFORDABLE, QUIET and PEACEFUL escape. The longer the lease, the lower the rate!!

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

We built The Moosehead Cabin 15 years ago. 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 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

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.

When we looked at other 'destination' lakes, the houses were all close together, and you were staring at your neighbors bar-b-que. 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!

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, as they are somewhat "whether dependent", and that you are free to ask them to come back another 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. Same with our pool guy (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!

AMAZING STAY AT MOOSHEAD!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful amenities! The king beds were so comfortable and the kitchen was well appointed. We enjoyed evenings by the fire and the beautiful views from the porch and hot tub. We'll definitely stay here again! Thank you!

EVERYTHING YOU WANT AND MORE

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time I stay at the cabin. Both years we have taken a large group of friends with us for a great long weekend by the lake. The cabin is super comfortable , very spacious and is outfitted with everything you could ever want.
BBQ, huge dinning room, great kitchen. Rebecca the owner is a dream to work with always super attentive before and after the stay.

I hate to recommend this place because I want it all to myself - 5 stars :)
