Our cheerful cottage is a year-round home with no-bank waterfront nestled on a tree'd lot with sweeping views of the lake. This spring-fed lake has a speed limit of 8 mph ~ great for fishing, kayaks, small boats, swimming, & quiet enjoyment. We're located approx. 3 miles west of I-5 so it's easy to stay there yet travel elsewhere.You’ll love our place because of it's charm, lakeside living, space, location & convenience to other sights & shopping.
The cottage itself is vey comfortable and recently renovated. We've also cleared out spaces in each of the rooms so our guests will have ample places to store their items. Our well-stocked kitchen's cabinets are new and help make that small space be quite efficient with its pull-out drawers, floor to ceiling cabinets & granite or butcher block countertops. It's a great place for those who want to be home for meals. The bedrooms are small but each has closet and drawer space reserved just for our guests.
Our cul de sac community has it's own water system that is carefully monitored & has passed all inspections. The water is great tasting & we have it professionally managed as well as tested monthly as well as improved over the years. It's never failed a quality test in the 30+ years we've owned it. I do suggest that you use our Britta filter since our system isn't as thorough as the bigger water companies though. Although we have neighbors on each side, we do have quite a bit of privacy due to our trees and angled house placement. If you hug trees like I do, you'll be a happy camper here even though all the cedar needles like to ride on your shoes. Our lot is really quite unique with it being approx. 75 ft at the top of the drive yet over 130 ft. of lakeshore. Top this off with great trees, some over 100 yrs old) for privacy, it's really one-of-a-kind location.

We've cleared the largest closed in the main bedroom for our guests as well as the top 3 drawers of the dresser plus a hanging closet unit that can hold foldables. For those also using the 2nd bedroom, the dresser has been completely cleared for guests use and only a few awkward items still remain in its closet. The lakeside coat closet has ample room for additional coats plus guests are welcome to use our rain gear, etc. that has been left. All food products left besides the B&B items ~ i.e. spices, coffee, tea, flours, soups, etc. are also available for our guests use. A new key pad lock is now on our back (fence side) door. It really makes the coming-n-goings so easy! (Should have installed one years ago)
Interaktion mit Gästen
Either my husband, Norman, or myself will try to meet you when you arrive. If this is not possible, we'll need to work install a individual key code for you. For the most part, we'd like you to have your privacy but also feel free to email or call us if you have any questions or concerns. We don't have a smart phone so communication while staying means a quick phone call or email.

We are on a septic system that works beautifully. It's that long area on your left as you wind down our driveway. No cars or wheeled vehicles are allowed on this area. We are in the midst of changing the area to a low-upkeep one that will be easier for our aging bodies to maintain! To that end, we've hired a local landscape architect who has mapped out suggestions that we'll begin planning sometime this next spring.
Because we're septic sensitive, we have suppled only single ply TP and ask that guests to be sure not to flush any questionable items. We had our system pumped and cleaned in Oct. 2016.

Please return all outside items to their proper place when not in use & never leave the boat's battery outside when not in use.

Retired & moved back to WA state. Love it here! I'm active in 2 book clubs, an athletic club where I do water aerobics, & enjoy improving our summer home and it's casual woodland gardens and enjoy seeing family (esp. our teen grandboys) whenever they're not involved in soccer, Ultimate, b'ball and music. My husband & I try to take a winter vacation every year & go to someplace warmer. Our vacation places usually dictate what we do.
I'm a relatively new host so am learning what it's like. Thus far I've met some delighful people both as a host and as a guest.
