The space

Our dream of living on the lake has finally become a reality and we want to share our little slice of Heaven with you! During your stay you will have sole access to the mother-in-law suite (located on the lower level) of our Cedar Home. There is a solid core (locked) door that separates our unit from yours, providing you with complete privacy.

Accommodations include:
**Separate keypad entrance
**VIEW of the lake from EVERY ROOM (except bathroom;-)
**BRAND NEW, large Kitchenette, Granite counter top, Stainless Steal appliances (oven, microwave, double burner hotplate, mini fridge (sorry-no dishwasher)
**Bedroom with Queen size bed
*Also available: a Roll-Away bed, 2 Single Mattresses (without frame), and a Pack 'n Play that can all be placed directly on the floor wherever you choose
**75" Flat screen Cable TV! (high-tech surround sound, blu-ray player and many movies provided). Basic cable and HBO also available
**X-Box 360, Kinect (some games provided-they are not currently hooked up, but are available for your use)
**A game closet packed full of board games for you to enjoy!
*Although it is unlikely she will be seen during your stay, we do have an (adorable) Maltese hypoallergenic puppy that lives in the upper unit with us. If she happens to hear you arrive, there is a slight chance she may vocally make her presence known, but she is quick to quiet down again.

Guest access

During your stay you will have complete access to our dock and we are happy to provide you with the FREE use of:
**Two Single Kayaks
**One Double Kayak (open bottom)
**10' Livingston boat with electric trolling motor (perfect for fishing)
We have several different children and adult life jackets to choose from, but cannot guarantee that we have your size.
*Bring your fishing poles! We have a small worm farm and would be happy to provide you with some bait.
...Have a watercraft you would like to launch? There is a great boat ramp conveniently located at the campgrounds (they have a $5 fee) about a one minute drive from here. Once your boat is in the water you can keep it at our private dock for your entire visit.

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.

Billie and Steve were great hosts, in fact, they were the best hosts we've ever had for an Airbnb rental! They paid great attention to detail, went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable, and were so much fun to hang out with! I would highly recommend staying at their suite...unless it overlaps our future visits ; )

Outstanding. The hosts are great: Thoughtful touches, outstanding hospitality and friendliness, and overall great space and amenities, including help with our pontoon when we forgot our pump! Birthday card and cake and other little touches were so nice. The property is very nice: easily accessible lake, kayaks, dock, and fishing (!). The suite was very comfortable and very well set up. 10 out of 10.

The hosts of this property were extremely nice. From the time, we arrived, and during our stay, they were very accommodating. We even received warm pastries and they were kind enough to let us borrow their equipment. I would highly recommend these hosts and their place on the lake to anyone interested in a truly pleasurable trip.

This will likely be the best Airbnb one will have the opportunity to visit...the suite itself is comfortable, well appointed, one has a lovely view of the lake, but what sets this Airbnb apart from most others is the high-level of service and extras all provided by the most gracious hosts, Billie and Steve. We were so blessed to have met them, Billie went the extra mile to ensure our stay was perfect. She and Steve introduced our daughter to speed boating and swimming in the lake. In addition, their kindness extended in the form of fresh cookies, blueberry banana bread, a kind note and other items too numerous to list. The sign they have inside the suite that says "Enter as strangers, leave as friends" is so true. They are the most wonderful, welcoming couple and the love they have put into the suite is apparent. Nothing has been missed. We had basket of items provided for s'mores, an extensive movie collection and towels for the lake.....we could go one and on, we were so pleased with everything and only wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you again to both of you for your hospitality and kindness. The world needs more people like you!

(URL HIDDEN) it terribly unprofessional to say I love love love you and your family??!! Thank you so very much for writing such a kind and thoughtful review...but much more importantly...thank you for being you!! We truly enjoyed meeting all three of you!! You are the perfect example of why we love Airbnb so much, if we had not become hosts we never would have had the opportunity to meet you!! I hope we see each other again in the future!

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!!
