Interaction with guests
We will accommodate your needs in any way that we can. If you are looking for company or suggestions on the local area we are more than willing to be there for you (we live in the upper unit and are almost always home). However, we also understand that every guest has a different preference on how much interaction they have with the host. We try to be aware of each person's individual wants and needs and completely respect your privacy. You are on vacation and it is very important to us that you enjoy yourself!
Other things to note
Fishing is open year-round and Rainbow Trout, Largemouth Bass, Crappie, and Yellow Perch can all be found in Tanwax Lake. If you get lucky, grill up some freshly caught fish on the gas BBQ grill (we provide the propane). This can be found on the large covered deck that you have exclusive use of during your stay. A cozy bistro table is available for a quiet romantic evening for couples, or a family with kiddos may find the larger picnic table more their style:)
Need to get out of the sun but not ready for relaxing inside the air-conditioned house? We have a large sun umbrella (and multiple deck chairs) that will provide a welcome shade for reading, relaxing, and visiting with your loved ones.
Lakeside Living Suite comfortably fits couples, families, and getaways with a small group of friends. If you are looking to accommodate a slightly larger group, please contact us to see if we can provide a comfortable sleeping arrangement.
- It is our preference that shoes not be worn inside the house; however, your comfort is our priority so please choose what works best for you
- Absolutely no smoking (of any kind) inside the house. Smoking is permitted on the dock
- Quiet hours: 11:00pm to 7:00am (we have fantastic neighbors, please be considerate of noise level when outside in late evening/early morning)

- Have Fun, Enjoy your Visit :)
My husband and I were born and raised in the beautiful State of Washington. We grew up in the same church and have been married for the past 16 years. Our dream of living on the lake has finally become a reality and we really enjoy sharing it with others.
Steve has a true passion for fishing and exploring the gorgeous outdoors that this area has to offer.
A lazy day snuggled up on a lawn chair in front of the lake with my adorable puppy and a good book sounds pretty close to heaven to me:-)...but hiking, kayaking, boating, long bicycle rides, snowshoeing, and an evening BBQ with family and friends all come in as a close second!
Although our Airbnb adventure is just beginning... it is obvious to us that we were made for this! We absolutely love getting to know our guests and hearing about their traveling experiences!! We have already met many amazing people and just love love love Airbnb!!
