Overview

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

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!

Couzins Gone Wild Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
6 of us couzin's get together every year and spend a weekend together. This year we picked Herron Island and what a wonderful place to stay. The ferry just happened to be out for the weekend but Jim was so gracious and pulled together some of the Islanders, all of us girls up with our TONS of luggage and food. Had the Islanders have two cars to help us load all of our stuff in there cars and drop us off at the beautiful home. The home was furnished with every thing that you would possibly need to spend however much time you would like to stay. We hand feed so many deer and 1 3/2 buck. The weather was beautiful. You can hike down to the beach and hang there and just take in all of the beautiful Puget sound. Jim just happened to be in his boat while we were on the beach so we went and docked his boat, and came and picked us up in his truck and took us on boat ride around the island. Jim was such a gracious host while we were there. I would recommend anyone who just needs a little get away to come to the island and just soak in the Puget sound and quiet of the home. Thank you so much Jim and Anne for the wonderful memories us girls will take with us as we spend our 7th annual Couzins Gone Wild weekend! We will be back

Thank you so much for such a wonderful time! Your place is amazing as always! This was our fourth time and walking in to that view upstairs still takes my breath away. We love that you have added the paddle boards and more kayaks, there was always something for everyone to do.

The exquisitely scenic Herron Home experience

  • 5 of 5
My husband, myself, 3 adult friends and three teenagers had the most relaxing, interesting and restorative vacation ever. The island is eclectically charming, incredibly peaceful and environmentally diverse from the inner island flora and fauna to the coastal beaches, cliffs and tree variety. Life is quiet, the people are interesting and there are deer and raccoons everywhere. The home is beautiful and meticulously maintained. Anne and Jim were gracious hosts and made sure were very well serviced. The teenagers enjoyed crabbing, paddle boarding and kayaking (as did I). The adults walked often, and enjoyed the view from the upper balcony for hours on end. We ventured off of the island a few times. It is quite an experience going on the ferry. Definitely recommend staying in Seattle overnight if that is a desired destination. Gig Harbor is easily accessible in one day. My recommendation for the island is, Come to the island for the island. Stay. It is a fantastic place to relax and get away from bustle. We are very excited to return again and again and again.

Family Girls Get-A-Way!

  • 5 of 5
Last year we all decided to meet on vacation and chose this amazing house to be the spot! We had Mom, one daughter, daughter in law, and grand daughter took off from Sacramento Californa. They were joined by her other daughter from New York, as well as her best friend from Hawaii. We relaxed, played games, took walks, fed the deer, kayaked, cooked, watched movies, just thoroughly enjoyed one another in this beautiful, comfortable, peaceful home with the most amazing view. I would highly recommend this home to anyone seeking a break from the grind. We will return!
