Spacious lake front property on one of western Washington's most beautiful lakes. Situated on 1.3acres of woodland with its own 100ft private lake front, our cottage has all the amenities you could ask for to have the perfect time away from the busy lives we all lead. The set up is adaptable for a family with children or couples who are looking for a break by the lake.
There is generous living indoors and out, with inside dining for 8, and an additional 6-8 person dining table out on the deck overlooking the lake. There is plenty of dinnerware for both. The kitchen is fully equipped, with the addition of the ubiquitous barbeque grill outside, and if needed a propane patio heater.
The lounge includes generous seating for watching movies on the wall mounted, flat panel tv. Chose from our wide selection of dvds or VHS tapes. Or if you prefer, listen to music from mp3 docking station or cds. Save the fridge for food, there is a separate wine fridge. Relax on either the large deck overlooking the lake or in the lounge on one of the comfortable sofas or chairs.
The main floor also has the master bedroom (kingsize bed), with the main bathroom; the remaining 3 bedrooms and 2nd full bathroom are on the lower level. There is a queen size bed, and two sets of twin beds, with a second tv and dvd/vcr in the larger twin to save arguing with the children!
At the beach there are 8 lawn chairs, and several loungers at your disposal and another fridge in the beach hut for the perfect way to while away the hours lakeside. Make full use of the two kayaks, or swim out to the dock just off shore and sunbathe to your heart's content. If you have a boat, bring it along and tie up to the new floating dock. There is also a brick fire pit and ample wood pile, to finish off a perfect day making s'mores with your favourite tipple.
If winter sports are more your bag then use the cabin as a base and drive the 45-60 minutes to Mount Baker, ski or ride all day then come back to dinner at the lake and sit around the fire at the lake rein acting the day's adventures and near misses! Awake relaxed and ready for another day on the slopes.
My husband I met in England when I was a flight attendant for Canada 3000 and married soon afterwards. We lived in the UK for 3 years and have now settled back in Vancouver, BC with our baby daughter. We love travelling and prefer to stay in rental homes which is why we have decided to share our lakeside home with you.
Janice Hunt purchased this house in 1974
Built by my father in the 70s my husband and I have spent the last few summers completely modernising it to what you see today. I spent my summers here growing up, and now that we have a daughter of our own, we use the place as our lakeside getaway from the noise and lights of Vancouver.
Our favourite thing to do is to end the day with a glass of wine and friends on the deck gazing out to the lake.
If you wish to have a fantastic reunion that your family will talk about for years to come then rent this fantastic home like we did! The home is spacious and very comfortable, the views from the deck are amazing and the variety of toys - from the board games to the kayaks - are outstanding. Best reunion we have had and we will definitely come back!
This home lacked nothing! The owners were easy to deal with, and the house is set up perfectly for a lake vacation. We would definitely rent this place again.
We had a great Family reunion. Everything was as described which allowed us to have a great time just relaxing and escaping life for a week.
Very comfortable and convenient; obviously well-used and loved by the owners. There is a road between the cottage and the lakeshore, but this was a non-issue as it is a very quiet road.
Our family had a great holiday away! Quiet spot with easy access to the lake. Spotted many deer, jumping fish, humming birds, and eagles! Extremely child friendly environment, with many amenities. Very relaxing spot and close to everything you many need for your family vacation!
Located 90minutes south of Vancouver, BC and 90mins north of Seattle the cottage is perfectly located for easy reach of the casinos and outlet malls on I5, and yet at the dead end quiet side of the lake, giving the best that Lake Whatcom has to offer for the private family getaway. A mile further down North Shore Rd there is a hiking trail that takes you around to the end of the lake.
