This was our third stay during the Thanksgiving weekend. The changes in weather each time have been great. The property is lovely and offers a great deal. I can see how this would be the ultimate place for a family in the summertime. There is a fire pit in the yard that is right by the water and lots of water toys and life vests available to keep your young'uns safe. The lake is stocked and fishing is reputed as great during the warm months. The house is perched at the end of the lake and has a wonderful view from the home and the levels of deck space and yard. There is a recently-updated kitchen. The kitchen and pantry are amazing with A LOT of space. The owners are near by and very respectful of your time spent there. Seahawks fans will be very comfortable here. ;) Direct tv offers much in viewing pleasures. As we were there again during holiday football games, my husband and dad were thrilled with the ability to see what they wanted to see while mom and I prepared culinary delights in that fabulous kitchen. Across the street is a natural setting that yields wonderful exploring, dog walking and shows evidence of many critters living there. There was a flicker and several other birds that visited the trees right outside of the home. There are many birds to watch if that is your thing. Keep in mind we were there in the colder time of year and it had much to offer. There is a piano, a huge variety of games, puzzles, and pellet stove. Again, I can imagine how this place could be a little slice of wonderfulness in the warmer months.
