Overview

Ilwaco House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Limited to 6 people)

On the peaceful back road at the southern end of the Long Beach Peninsula, this home sits right beside Black Lake and a 60 acre cranberry farm. It is a mile north of the river-port city of Ilwaco, and a mile east of the Pacific Ocean. Starting here you can follow the back road for 26 miles along Willapa Bay to the northern tip of the Peninsula at Leadbetter Point.

This is a NON-SMOKING house. The kitchen is bright, and fully-equipped. The dining room table seats up to 10. There are three bedrooms, each with queen bed. One room has a TV. The master bedroom has a private bathroom with step-in shower. A tub/shower is in the bathroom near the other two bedrooms. The living room with cathedral ceiling is spacious and airy, with a small game room at one end opening onto a lanai. The private back yard and patio is ideal for a picnic or BBQ as you sit surrounded by giant spruce trees beside the 33 acre lake.

Walk along the dikes by the cranberry bogs and check out the crop. If you’re quiet, you might see an occasional bear or deer passing through. Go for a short 2-mile walk around the lake, or just walk one-half mile to the public boat launch. Spot an osprey in its nest, a bald eagle soaring overhead, a beaver, a great blue heron, or a momma deer with her newborn fawn. Explore the lake by kayak, canoe or small electric-motorized craft. Come in the summer and enjoy this outdoor oasis or come in the winter and watch the winter storms blow across the lake. Anytime it's a cozy place to curl up with a good book and get away from it all.

About five miles north of the house is the Cranberry Museum on Pioneer Rd. There you can learn about the history of the cranberry industry on the West Coast and shop for many exciting cranberry food items and unique gifts.

The Peninsula's three rural cities boast fine art galleries, shops, restaurants, four museums, pubs, hiking trails, lots of antique stores, and charter fishing. Visit two historic lighthouses at Cape Disappointment State Park, or the wonderful 8.5 mile Discovery Trail, the perfect place for biking or walking. The trail starts at the Port of Ilwaco and follows the path Lewis and Clark walked along the Washington Coast. Go beach combing,horseback riding from the Long Beach approach, or take a walk on the 3/4 mile boardwalk over the dune grass. The area offers many great photo opportunities all within a 5 mile radius of the lake house.

Whether you're hanging out with family or a group of friends, or planning a quiet getaway, this little home on Black Lake is perfect as a headquarters from which to explore. Come have a relaxed, fun time on the coast!

About Ardell McPhail

I live across the street from this house on a cranberry farm with my husband, our dog and cat. We are the only two residences on the north end of Black Lake. My husband and I have had rental property for many years. We've been farming cranberries for 30 years after careers as educators. We'd love to share my folk's home with you, and help acquaint you with our wonderful area.

Ardell McPhail purchased this house in 2010

Why Ardell McPhail chose Ilwaco

This house belonged to my folks for 20 years. The property is on our cranberry farm. With a vacation rental, we can still block out times for family and relatives to come visit and stay in the house. We know you'll enjoy the house and the area!

What makes this house unique

The house is cozy and bright. It's fun to sit on the patio and watch the geese and other birds on the lake in the spring and summer. In winter, the wind and rain whips the lake water into waves. It's nice to be inside looking out. There is always some kind of activity on the cranberry farm year around. Watch the sprinklers during spring frost season or irrigating in the summer. Cranberry harvest in October is a particularly picturesque time.

great spot

We enjoyed the relaxing area; easy access to town. Took in the Cranberry Museum and hiked the trail around the lake, several times. The house had everything that we needed for our stay. Thanks for sharing your guest house.

Great Place to stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We brought our three grandkids for four nights and had a wonderful time. House was clean with every amenity imaginable. Great walk around lake, and loved the location. Quiet surroundings and yet so close to everything. The owners were great and hope to go back soon. Pat and Paula

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5
We found the property to be well located in the area and everything was clean and tidy. With just the two of us, we only used one bedroom - but it was comfortable and cozy. The living room chairs were comfortable and the cable TV was fine - although without a guide you had no way of knowing any upcoming programs. Through no fault of the owners the furnace went out on the second day of our stay, and with the temps reported to be getting down to 20* that night, we decided to cut our stay short. The owner (Ardell) was very gracious and refunded our $$ for the time not used. We would stay there again if traveling to that area.

Did a last-minute 4-day weekend and picked this home from those available - SO glad we did! The house is immaculate, the location beautiful, interesting, unique, and oh, so comfortable - The landlords made us fee welcome and taken care of without being intrusive. The home offers privacy and incredible views, and has every comfort and convenience you could ask for. The cranberry bogs, lake, walks, and closeness to ocean beaches gave us so many choices of great things to do. I highly recommend staying here and will come back again next chance we get!

A best kept secret

  • 5 of 5
My family has been staying on the peninsula for 40+ years, at the hotels and camping at Fort Canby, (Now referred to as Cape Disapointment).
Ardell was our county extension agent when I was in 4-H many years ago, she was wonderful then and has not changed a bit.
This is the most beautiful, best kept secret on the peninsula. I would gladly pay much more for the privilege to stay at this site. This isn't a rental, it is a home. Fully furnished, it was nice to kick back on the couch and just relax.

Thanks again,
Rob

Cozy Comfy Cranberry farm home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 3 nights with our son, his wife and their 2 little boys. There were 3 bedrooms that were very comfortable! Plenty of towels and every kitchen amenity you could ask for. There was a nice gas grill and an outdoor picnic table and the owners allowed us to use a small boat with a trolling motor in the lake which is right out the back door. Walking around the cranberry farm was very interesting and the owners Malcolm and Ardell couldn't have been more welcoming or accomodating. There were lots of parks nearby to explore and the ocean is really close. I would highly recommend staying here.
