Our family has owned the property here on Lake Washington since 1956. Originally purchased by my father as a working resort. My parents ran it as a resort in the summers for two years until they decided to just keep it as a family vacation home.
My family and I moved here in 1997 to help our parents in their retirement.
In 2005 after my first Iraq tour we decided to build on the 6 acres willed to us from my father. The house was finished in 2007 as a private home. In 2014 after my retirement from the Military we decided to rent our home as a vacation rental.
This has been one of the best decisions we have ever made.
Meeting so many wonderful people has been one of the great unexpected benefits of Vacation Rental ownership.
Eric Omberg purchased this house in 2007
The property and area are some of the best this state has to offer.
It has just about everything a vacationer could ever want in a Vacation home.
We designed and built this beautiful home to take advantage of the views and unique features of the property. We nestled it in the woods facing Lake Washington so we could see the lake from our 30 feet high Cathedral ceiling with the whole front of the house all windows. You can enjoy the outdoors on the wrap around deck or a relaxing sunset under the covered patio. Listen to the frogs and wildlife from the local pond right in our backyard. Enjoy the whirlpool tub in the master bath or sit in the outdoor hot tub under the stars on a beautiful calm night.
Have a drink at the downstairs bar and watch the game on the big screen or just find a nice spot to read a book picked from our available library. Let the kids play the Wii or play games from the game shelf.
You can just relax and enjoy our beautiful home any way you choose. It's your vacation. enjoy it.
This was the perfect place for our family of nine to come together from two coasts. Thank you for sharing your lovely spacious and decorated home for our holiday week-long get-together. We enjoyed games and good food around the big dining table. We had campfires in the evening and sledding on the hill...and the grandkids had their first ice fishing experience on the lake. We look forward to returning to Stoney Brook!
Just a group of Co-workers that got together. Property was wonderful and we all enjoyed our stay. Eric was great to talk to and was very helpful. The house was spacious and allowed us to just lounge and hang out. Hot tub was a great addition! Will definitely book again!
We had a very relaxing vacation at this cabin.
The hot tug - what a luxury!
The kayaks - we had wonderful paddle over to Lake Stella
The giant deck, peaceful and private
Eric - always available and helpful
The kitchen - everything you could possibly need is available and of high quality
The size - you could have 3-4 couples here with no problems
The pictures give the impression that you are on the lake. While you have easy access to the lake, the cabin is not actually on the lake.
This cabin is beautiful and private. We enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit in the back yard. There's plenty of outdoor seating. Eric was a great host and worked to make our stay special. The lake is pretty and there are lots of places to explore in the area. We hope to be back soon.
This is our second stay at Stoney Brook. We'll be back!
We didn't leave the property for a week (6 adults and 4 toddlers)---and we didn't want to!
There are so many great aspects to this property---the home is beautiful, the use of the lake and pontoon are perfect and between the huge wrap-around deck, the yard and the hot tub area you can change venues all day long!!
Eric is a wonderful host who really aims to please.
We're already planning our next stay.
The cabin was great! Had enough room for our family of 10! The weather was also amazing! The lake was nice and clean, we enjoyed having the opportunity to dock our boat up on the lake. Eric and Pauline were very helpful at an questions we had. Thank you for letting us stay there!

Swim or fish right off the dock or just soak up the sun sitting on the lake shore with a good book.
Have a bonfire and enjoy a SMORE or two with the kids.
