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!

"We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful lake house with its gorgeous views. We brought our own canoes, and so, enjoyed water play and swimming. Be ready for lots of stairs and steps both inside and outside the house, but the beautiful views and native plants make it all worthwhile. The kitchen is well equipped and the living room and dining areas are perfect and comfortable for large families."
