About Cindy Blair
Having moved up from Florida, we are still in awe of the Pacific Northwest. Its beautiful here. To have a cabin on such a beautiful lake and so convenient is a real blessing. Besides swimming and boating, our other passion is horses. We live on a small horse farm about 1/2 hour from the lake house.
Cindy Blair purchased this House in 2003
Why Cindy Blair chose Thurston County
This property is a dream come true. That special home on a lake. To have that view from every window. It never grows old. Kayaking on the lake is fabulous. It's a meandering lake full of fingers and coves. I've seen an owl bathing and preening; otters playing and countless hours of the osprey fishing. There are plenty of bald eagles fishing too. But still, we are not far from all the city has to offer. There are miles and miles of bike trails, great golf courses, Puget Sound is 15 minutes away, hiking on Mt Rainer...so much to do..or you can just relax at the cabin. We have high speed internet and Comcast TV for those connected folks too.
What makes this House unique
Our cabin is a perfect retreat. Although you are convenient to Interstate 5 it is a world away. So, quiet and private and beautiful. Lake views from every window. We often have families here to visit their soldiers at Joint Base Lewis McChord. It's a great home for entertaining. With the open floor plan there is plenty of room for everyone. In the Summer you can play on the lake. In the Winter you can enjoy the cozy radiant heat floors, jacuzzzi bath tub and large rock wall fire place. This is a custom built home. The castle like front door was hand made by the owner, his father and brother including forging the hinges. It is massive. The rocks in the fireplace wall were gathered durring his travels abroad. Every detail was executed with care and love.

Spacious, clean and a great value
The beautiful photographs of this property show the spaciousness of this cabin. But what they can't capture, is the true beauty of this finely crafted home, which can only be experienced by stepping inside.
It has a massive front door, which features custom-made hardware and enormous forged hinges, that swing easily with the touch of a finger. It provides a gorgeous view of the lake through a wall of glass. It has a beautifully crafted cathedral ceiling with exposed beams, and an expansive staircase that leads to the main bedroom in the loft. My wife and I are both in our early fifties so we were concerned about a loft bedroom. But we found the stairs very easy-to-walk.
The bedroom has plenty of closet space, two end tables and a very comfortable king-size bed. Looking out over the hand-crafted railing, you'll enjoy a view of the stunning stone fireplace, spacious living room and extraordinary kitchen area, as well as that spectacular view of Lake St. Clair.
The roomy kitchen is well-equipped with a gas stove and range, microwave oven, roaster oven, crock pot, coffee maker, toaster, toaster oven, refrigerator and dishwasher. The countertop and island are adorned with gorgeous granite. There are plenty of dishes, cups, pots, pans and silverware.
The living room area is equally roomy as the kitchen. It offers plenty of seating with two comfy couches and several alternate seating options with the four footrests that double as a coffee table, three woven straw stools that double as storage for comfy blankets, and the raised hearth of the spectacular rumford fireplace.
We rented in late December. So we were treated to the heated flooring provided by a radiant heating system, which made both the granite flooring in the living room and the wood flooring in the kitchen feel quite warm and cozy. The bathroom, which is also very roomy, has a pedestal sink and a wonderful jacuzzi bathtub with dual shower heads and comfortable built-in seat. There's also a washer/dryer combo unit that allowed us the convenience of packing a lot lighter than we typically do for extended trips.
The downstairs bedroom, which is off of the living room, offers bunk beds and very comfortable bedding.
The owner was very responsive in answering email and phone messages, and was also very accommodating to all of our requests. I would absolutely recommend this to a friend or relative, and am looking forward to my next stay in this amazing cabin.
The cabin was custom built with no expense spared. There is a great dock and the lake is clean and beautiful. I wish they had an opportunity to enjoy the lake too. It was just too cold.
Could hardly be more perfect
Cynthia is a terrifically helpful host, and the property and location are beautiful.
Gorgeous, warm, inviting, meticulously clean!
The Lakehouse is beautiful and comfortable. Warm and stylish, but cozy. Just beautiful! We also appreciated how clean the cabin was on our arrival. Beds were made up and very comfortable. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Amazing lakefront rental!
My boyfriend and I spent our anniversary weekend here two years in a row and loved it! Cindy is so easy to work with and incredibly flexible, and the house is so comfy and beautiful. Highly recommend!
Restful winter getaway
We enjoyed our weekend- sunny but cold outside. No fish biting but we enjoyed the cabin and the great view of the water.
Very nice home and property! The views cannot be beat!
I stayed for a weekend and it was amazing! Eagle’s nest was a great spot to sleep and the views are amazing! Has all appliances you may need and very comfortable!
