We were visiting family in WA and decided to take some time for our anniversary. The owners were very gracious and helpful in setting up the booking. We were happily surprised at how big and beautiful the property is. The house is immaculately clean with everything one could wish for to be as comfortable as at home. We loved having a full, completely appointed kitchen and a grill on the back deck. Loved the rocking chairs on the front porch too! The Blacktail property was the perfect jumping off place for our day trips, the first day to Cedar Flats to see the enormous trees and fishing on the Muddy River. The second day we drove to Johnston Ridge, a long drive but there is a great visitor center there. It was so wonderful to come back to a comfortable home, relax and enjoy the silence, the privacy. Beautiful views from higher points in the neighborhood, and the entire reservoir area is stunning. Highly recommend staying here and we probably will be back! Thank you so much Vickie and Gary!
This is a fabulous home and it's close to everything, hiking, fishing and amazing views! Set in a quiet gated community, the pictures do not do the home justice, it's extremely clean and like a brand new home. Homeowners were wonderful, prompt and very helpful. After renting over 30 VRBO homes over the years, this is the only one I'd rate an A+. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a piece of paradise, we did not want to leave and we will be back!
We needed a retreat in the forest. This location is incredible. Quiet, peaceful, close to all the fun at Lake Merwin and Yale. Plenty of room for everyone. Beautiful (huge) master bedroom/bathroom. So happy to find plenty of towels :) Comfy beds and linens. We absolutely loved the oversized living/entertainment room which has french doors to separate it from the rest of the house. Our teenagers loved having their 'own' table in the formal dining room to play games. The little kids were delighted to find toys to play with in one of the bedrooms. The front porch and spacious deck were delightful, we enjoyed the sights and sounds of the property very much! This home is well stocked, we had everything we needed for preparing our family meals. The washer and dryer were a huge benefit! We were very happy with this property, it was better than we expected. Thank you Vickie for everything!!
We enjoyed our stay at this home so much! The pictures on here are wonderful, but don't do the home justice. The area is georgous and offers so many things to do. The location of the home is perfect in order to be away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to so many attractions. We were able to explore the South side of Mt. Saint Helen's and saw some amazingly beautiful scenery. We were also not too far away from the Visitor Center and the other side of the mountain. The lake is so close and has a wonderful day use/swimming area. After full day's exploring, it was so nice to come back to this air conditioned, comfortable, well stocked home. Thank you Vickie for your home and for being so helpful, before, during and after our stay. We had a great time and my family will have this memory forever.
