About Kathryn Little

We are big supporters of family life and have made our vacation rental as family-friendly as possible. There are fun-filled activities here for young and old, indoors and out, active and quiet from swimming or fishing in the lake to chilling in the media room with a movie or in the library with a good book. We lived in this house until our kids left the nest. We now live in a smaller house next door. It's a Little bit of heaven! We hope you'll choose Heron Lodge for your next vacation.

Kathryn Little purchased this house in 1999

Why Kathryn Little chose Puget Sound

Lakefront, beautiful, quiet, able to swim and fish, and for canoeing/kayaking/boating in the lake in the summer, an hour from Seattle/Tacoma or SeaTac airport.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the first year that Mom and Dad have offered Heron Lodge as a vacation rental. They bought another (smaller) house on the lake and have kept this one to use for family and friends...and now for others, too. We have had so much fun here. We know you will, too. It's comfortable, quiet, and inviting. This is a kid-friendly place. You'll be happy to have chosen Heron Lodge as a place for your vacation with family, or for a quiet retreat. Sincerely, George, Tony, Mike, Will and Liz

Beautiful and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend at the lodge! The accommodations were beautiful and comfortable for adults and kids, with plenty of space for everyone. We enjoyed watching the merganzers and river otter in the lake. This house is ideal and we would love to come back again next year!

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the facilities for family and friends' lodging for my daughter's wedding last May. Kathy was wonderfully accommodating to us in oh, so many ways! We had enough space to prepare the wedding flowers, put final touches on wedding attire, prepare meals, and host the bridesmaids and bride. We woke up the morning of the wedding to just relax in a beautiful house with beautiful views with the bride, her maids, family, and friends. I would (and already have) highly recommend this location and the host and hostess. Blessings to you Kathy and Larry, and many thanks!

This spacious house is in a beautiful, quiet setting and was just perfect for my out of state family while they were visiting for my daughter's wedding. They enjoyed the lake, deck, kayaks, and comfortable beds. Everything they needed was there. Kathy and Larry were very gracious and readily available for questions. Highly recommend!

Beautiful Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

I am an active duty military service member and I needed somewhere for my family and a few guests to stay for the weekend while we celebrated my daughter's christening back home in Bremerton, WA. We had no idea what a treat were in for at Heron Lodge! What an amazing home for a celebration! The view of the lake is spectacular and Larry (the owner) came by to say hello the night we arrived. The home contained everything we needed for the celebration (including tables, chairs, a BBQ grill and a rice cooker!). There were plenty of seats for our guests at the celebration and a welcome book that contains all the information you will need about the local area. All of our guests complimented us on our choice in Heron Lodge. We will definitely be back for future family gatherings! Huge THANK YOU to the home owners who made our little celebration an event to remember!

Christmas Memories

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented the Heron Lodge for our Christmas Celebration and this facility exceeded our expectations. The owners decorated beautifully for Christmas with evergreens and lights and even put up a tree.

They were very kind and generous. On Christmas Eve, they brought over fresh baked cookies. There was a forecast of snow, so they brought over sleds, and gave some good tips of where to park so we could get out without any trouble and a name of a friend with snow equipment in case we got into some trouble.

The Lodge is large enough and spread out enough that it never felt crowded, even when there were 20 of us there.

I highly recommend this home for your next vacation rental.

You won't find the same hospitality anywhere else.
