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

Peaceful and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Our Heron Lodge was made better by the wonderful accommodations and fantastic hosts. Everything we needed was available- this home is surprisingly well stocked with al, of the little things (and big) that make it very easy to be away from home. Ours was an unplanned trip, but you would never know it, as everything we needed was available. Thank you for a lovely time.

Fabulous Family Get Together!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time. The house was perfect for our group. We had family in from out of town and we wouldn't all fit into our house. So, our answer was to rent a place on the lake. They are still talking about the experience!!

It was a great decision. The setting was beautiful. The house was well stocked for all of our sleeping and cooking needs. There was plenty to keep the kids ages 6-17 busy and having fun. Kayaks, paddleboat, row boat and canoe; Games and videos, a pool table, and ping pong. It was simply amazing!!

We would love to return again and highly recommend!!

What a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The actual pictures on the website do not do heron lodge full justice, the views from this property are awesome - the place itself is very well equipped and the owners are really nice and helpful, we had a fantastic 7 days swimming in the lake, canoeing and fishing the lake also, we had a firepit each evening watching the stars and toasting marshmallows. Such an amazing place to spend the last 7 days after a 10 day road trip across America

Perfect Beach House for a passel of grandchildren

  • 5 of 5

As advertised, the house was well equipped with toys, kitchen gear, books, dvds, and a garage with pool, table tennis and foosball. Many rooms and tables and chairs made for easy rearrangement depending on what the 18 of us were doing--sleeping, eating, playing games, or family karaoke. House is not pristine, but that worked in our favor with so many little kids running about. All the boats were well used, as were the fishing rods. We didn't even need to explore our surroundings since we were finding everything we needed for our entertainment and relaxation in the house and yard. Our ten grandkids, and eight adults had a wonderful time, and everyone wants to come back again. The owners were very responsive when we had questions or needed something. I would definitely recommend this home for family gatherings and reunions.
