Overview

Lakebay House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and sleeps 8

'Herron House' is located on a private island in the South Puget Sound area. Visiting the island includes a ten minute ride on the 'Charlie Wells' from the ferry dock at Lakebay, as the island is only accessable by private ferry. Although the peace and tranquility of the island may make you feel as if you are a million miles away from the rest of the world, in fact you are only a short distance. You can take day trips to Seattle as it is just over an hour away. The island is about a thirty minute drive from the town of Gig Harbor, Tacoma, and Port Orchard. It is a very small island and there is no store, so pack what you will need to relax and enjoy.

Experience the tranquility of island life. Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views while you watch bald eagles soaring over head. 'HerronHouse sits atop a hundred foot bluff that gives you wonderful views that go on for miles. This newly constructed two thousand square foot home is the perfect island retreat.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Unbelievable view and lots of activities!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best spots we have ever stayed! The view of the Sound is incredible, the house is immaculate, and the variety of activities were fantastic (kayaks, bikes, hikes, beach!) The highlight was all the wildlife, especially the very friendly deer.

Jim and Anne were perfect hosts, helping us with all the amenities and making themselves available for all our questions.

Highly recommended, would love to make our visit an annual tradition!

Perfect Holiday Getaway and Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

After a lovely and adventurous little ferry ride across the bay, we were overjoyed to arrive at this lovely home where we would be spending our Thanksgiving holiday. The house is even more beautiful in person than it is in the pictures. It was very clean, the couches were cozy and the kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed. We really enjoyed watching the dramatic weather that weekend come and go over and around the island while cuddled inside with the fireplace and the very nice, big, flat screen TV to watch football on! My mother in law, husband, two little girls (aged 5 and 7) all absolutely loved our stay and we are planning to come back again!

Beautiful home on a beautiful island - a treasure!

  • 5 of 5

We held our leadership and planning retreat here for our team of 6 ladies. What a wonderful place to relax, unwind, and rest.

Arriving on the island is an experience in itself, it is very secluded and rustic but just gorgeous. The first one to greet us was one of the island's deer shortly after we drove off ferry, it was awesome! They are all over the island and would come visit us every day checking in for some snacks.

Jim and Anne's home is beautifully appointed, fully equipped, and that view! Oh my, the photos do not do it justice. We were here the weekend of a major storm, it was pretty exciting and felt very cozy being inside.

There are many amenties/activities available that we did not take advantage of due to the weather, one morning two of us borrowed the bikes provided and rode around the island (with the deer). So much fun being out and not thinking about cars, traffic, crowds of people...nice to do that now and again!

I want to give this the highest rating as possible, as I can't wait to go spend time there again...thank you for your outstanding pre-arrival care and hospitality during our visit!

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast! Everyone loved feeding the deer, waking up to the beautiful view of the ocean, walking around the island and on the beach! The kids even love the ferry ride. One advice would be just to prepare ahead of time and plan out your meals. We would love to come back in the summer for the crabing.

Cousins Gone Wild

  • 5 of 5

My five cousins and I stayed the weekend and had such a great time! The place is all you see in the photos and more! The owners are so kind and really make you feel at home! The very tame deer, that we fed by hand, and petted, was a highlight of our time here! Thanks so very much for opening your beautiful home to us !!! We became known on the island as, The Cousins!
