Take a virtual tour here: http://www.tourbuzz.net/public/vtour/display/141688?idx=1 (the home is NOT currently on the market for sale)
Only about 1 hr, 15 min from Seattle, you will feel worlds away. Even those familiar with the beautiful state of Washington will be in awe by the splendor of the lake and surrounding area. Nature abounds and one feels almost like an intruder in the serenity of the magnificent environment.
The beauty of the recently constructed, custom house is only topped by the breathtaking lake and mountain views. The spacious, custom lodge is 3000 square feet with 3 bedrooms plus a private den, and 3 bathrooms, sleeping 8 to 10.
It is available during the warm summer months for fun at the lake with boating, fishing and water sports (great dock to moor your boat!) and also in the winter months for a snowy getaway where you can sit by the wood burning fire indoors creating memories you won't soon forget.
ABOUT THE LODGE
Walk in and notice first the wall of windows that draws you to the expansive view of peaceful Lake Cavanaugh. The custom kitchen is to the left and features an amazing walnut island with custom lighting, as well as top of the line appliances and gorgeous cabinetry. It is very well equipped with everything you will need to cook during your stay. The island features seating for 4, and the dining area is just off the kitchen with seating for 6 to 8 more.
The master bedroom with a king bed is on the main floor too and has access to the deck that spans the lakeside of the house. A private bathroom featuring tub, limestone countertop (fossils included!) and custom tiled shower is right off this large room, complete with walk-in closet.
The main living area has a beautiful wood-burning fireplace, comfortable sectional sofa and vaulted ceilings with floor to ceiling windows to highlight the water views. It is just off the kitchen and dining area and also features a large flat screen TV (because the location is remote, reception, which is great, is limited to 5 or 6 main networks) - ask for further details.
The private den (or 4th bedroom) is off the living area and has a daybed with trundle (so 2 twin mattresses). It has great views of the water and double doors with shades for privacy. There is also a full bath with tub on the main floor.
Lounge around in the game room with a bar, another sectional sofa and a pool table for hours of fun! There is a gas powered fireplace for just the right ambiance. Another full bath is on this level as well as two more bedrooms, each with a queen sleigh bed and views of the lake again.
OUTSIDE THE LODGE
Off the main living area is a large deck spanning the house. There is outdoor dining and a gas BBQ for feasts with a view that can't be beat. Just a few easy steps lead you down to the large, sturdy dock, which is complete with diving board and ladder off the end. Moor your ski or fishing boat on the private dock during your stay. You can launch about 1/2 mile from the lodge at the public boat launch. Of course, waterskiing, jetskiiing, seadooing, wakeboarding, innertubing, kayaking, sailing and just exploring this 844 acre lake provide hours of endless fun.
The Lake Cavanaugh water is so clear that you won't miss the fish swimming around. If you like fishing, the season is open year round so get those trout! The main species are rainbow and cutthroat trout, with others being brook trout, largemouth bass and kokanee.
The surrounding area has quad trails, hiking, and wonderful biking opportunities. The paved road around the lake is almost completely flat and it's about 8 miles around. Deer, bald eagles and plenty of other wildlife call peaceful Lake Cavanaugh area their home.
Within 20 or so minutes you can golf at Overlook Golf Course and 10 minutes further in Mount Vernon is Eaglemont Golf Course.
Take a day trip to the San Juan Islands by catching a ferry at Anacortes, just under an hour's drive. The San Juans by ferryboat is a beautiful way to experience the Puget Sound.
There are also 3 major casinos within 30 to 45 minute's drive: Angel of the Winds, Tulalip Casino and Quil Ceda. Try your luck at the slots or tables, treat yourself to a nice dinner, and stay out dancing. At the end of the night return back to your peaceful Lake Cavanaugh retreat.
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival is a wonderful spring time event to attend. You can get there easily within 30 to 40 minutes. Bring your camera for the most vibrant photos you have ever taken!

"Lake Cavanaugh Lodge. Spent a weekend here with a group of friends on this beautiful lake house. The drive to the house is just far enough to be remote (most of us coming from the north suburbs), but close enough to not be too tiresome of a drive. It can be a little hard to find the house b/c it's lower than street level (just look for the address on the fence and steep driveway), but once we arrived the house was even better than expected---the pictures don't do this home justice. The upstairs is a large, expansive area with an open kitchen and large windows giving a magnificent view of the lake. There's a balcony area that we didn't use much due to the cold, but in the spring/summer I imagine it to be heavily used. The master BR + BA is upstairs and downstairs there are 2 other rooms. 2 of the doors downstairs are locked (one with occasional creepy sounds coming from behind it...), presumably to other bedrooms the owners use. We comfortably slept 8 people in the beds, while 2 slept on the couches upstairs and downstairs, both in front of fireplaces (by choice). The home was very clean, kitchen supply-wise had everything we needed, and plenty of linens. Communication with management was prompt and courteous throughout the whole process, before and after. We fished off the dock, but didn't even get a bite. We saw only 1 boat trolling for trout, so maybe it was out of season or something. There is no mobile phone service there, so you'll need to use the landline provided and there is wifi internet, but the range was a bit limited in the home. Also, it's really isolated with no stores or restaurants nearby. The activities nearby that we know of are hiking, fishing in the lake, and driving the countryside. The only "negative" was that we were asked to start the laundry of the towels and linens used before checking out, which isn't such a bad thing, but made us wonder why we needed to do that when a cleaning fee is assessed. Not a huge deal though. Overall, would love to come back. Everyone kept saying the whole weekend how we'd like to come again during the summer."
