Lake Dawn House for Rent: Port Angeles, WA

Located only 5 miles from Port Angeles (up Hurricane Ridge Road), Lake Dawn is a small, friendly  community.  The lake is part of your backyard!  Canoe and fish in the summer, ice skate in the winter.  Trails into Olympic National Park at the other side of the lake, and trails into the foothills (Department of Natural Resources land) right out your front door.

This home is 3 bedrooms plus den (or 4 bedrooms ~ they all have closets), 1 bathroom.  I bedroom on main level, one in the loft, 2 downstairs. Laundry room on main level.  It has a loft and a sunroom, along with a huge deck to enjoy the outdoors.  2,000+ square feet, plenty of space for everyone in your family.

We are looking for exceptional renters to care for our property.  Possibility for very long term rental or purchase.

House is unfurnished.  There is a nice basement for storage, and a woodshed full of dry wood to burn next winter. 

Looking through the living room to the sunroom ~ lots of windows!
You will enjoy:
  • Stainless appliances in kitchen
  • Hardwood floors in the main living area
  • Beautiful hot tub ~ relax and watch the stars (must agree to perform hot tub maintenance, or we can drain it)

Beautiful built-in cabinets in dining room
  • Freshly painted ~ every room!
  • Lots of closets and storage
  • Bright, clean laundry room and pantry just off the dining room

Wash dishes to lake and mountain views!

Another view of the living room

The living room features cathedral ceilings (the wood you see is the original cedar from the cabin that once stood here).  A woodstove will keep you cozy in the winter.

Looking out of the sunroom
The sunroom is a great place to nap away a rainy afternoon!

During the summer, you'll love living on the 300 square foot deck.  The deck is completely kid safe ~ no stairs down and full railings all around.  (Our toddler daughter loves playing on the deck!)

Plenty of room for your grill, table, and even more seating!

This is not a typical rental house in Port Angeles ~ this has been our home for 11 years.  You will love living on a lake, yet being only 10 minutes from downtown.

We regularly see deer, bald eagles, a wide variety of ducks, grouse, owls, otters, and we've even had a great blue heron hang out at the lake recently.  The views of the mountains are stunning no matter what the season.

Lake Dawn is a quick drive 5 miles up Hurricane Ridge Road.  In the winter, the park maintains the ridge road and Lake Dawn Road, so we have excellent plowing and cindering during the occasional snowfall.

Hurricane Ridge is only a 30 minute drive... much easier than coming all the way from town!

The house will be available spring 2015.
