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 Wildcat Lake

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

Family get away

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home. Definitely large enough to comfortably handle 10 of us.

The kitchen had everything you needed. The media room was at the back of the house, so the kids could be playing video games, and parents can be peacefully reading a book in the living room, while enjoying the lovely lake view.

Having the two kayaks and the canoe available was fantastic way to explore the lake. There was soft mud and lily pads as you entered the lake, but once you paddled past them the lake was gorgeous !

Overall, a fantastic stay !

Our family had a fun, relaxing long weekend at Heron Lodge. The house was great for our group ages 4-52. The only thing that could have improved on our stay would have been mattress toppers on the guest room beds to make the beds more comfortable.

The lake was fantastic and the trip exceeded our expectations. Having the lake so near the house and so many water craft, toys provided was such a bonus. The house also was very well equipped and we were surprised at the thought that went into making sure we had everything we needed besides food. We brought games and there was so much to do at the house and on the lake we never even opened the bag the games were in. We hope to make our trip to Heron Lodge an annual tradition.

Wildcat Lake wedding and family time

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Kathy were so accommodating to let us have our wedding with 100 plus people in attendance. They are just the sweetest people. The house and grounds were perfect! The house was large enough that we stayed for an additional 4 nights and enjoyed the lake and amenities with our kids and grandkids. The 4th of July fireworks over the lake did not disappoint! We had such a great time and would love to make that July week an annual occurance.
