BEAUTIFUL WATERFRONT HOME ON A PRIVATE ISLAND ....THE PERFECT GETAWAY!

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

Amazing! View, view, view!

  • 5 of 5
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!

A little bit of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a week at Herron House and had a wonderful time. We kayaked with seals, fished for squid and took breathtaking walks on this beautiful Island. The ferry is a challenge, but you find yourself speaking the lingo. Did ya shuttle? You have to stay here also to find out what this means. I'm going back next year. Enjoy!

Paradise on the Puget Sound!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely love staying here. The house is amazing with plenty of room and it feels like home. This is our second time staying for a week and will be back for a third! The kids had plenty to do with the games at the house, kayaks and bikes, and searching for shells and star fish on the shore. The owners are fabulous too. Always makes us feel like old friends and we enjoy taking the crab trip and boat ride. I would recommend this house with no hesitation to all.

Third Visit

  • 5 of 5
This is the third time my children and I have visited this place - they love it and already asking me to book for 2014. The beach and dock area is perfect for them to go swimming, fishing and crabbing and quiet enough for mom to get some peace on the beach! The undeveloped beach is perfect for finding tiny crab, starfish and sea glass - the perfect adventure! And the deer - well they are a amazing. Tame enough to eat out of a child's hand and everywhere. This place is definitely unique and a wonderful place to recharge.
