Welcome to "The Lake House" on Lake Centralia. We loved staying here so much we bought it and are excited to continue sharing the home with you. A quiet getaway from-it-all location with so many things for you and your guests to do that you won't miss the wifi. Families can reconnect over epic pinball and air hockey competitions. There is plenty of space for all without all those extra per person charges. So kick back and relax we want you to love it as much as we do.

The space
We offer a 2240 square foot ranch lake house on Lake Centralia. With 3 good sized bedrooms (5 beds = A bunk beds with Full beds /2 queen/1 king bed) and 2 full bathrooms there is plenty of room for everyone.

We love pets and all animals that are well behaved and potty trained are welcome with a $25 a day pet fee. We do have a medium size cage available for use as well as dog bowls. Dogs over 100# require pre-approval.

The space
The open floor plan has a large kitchen that opens to a game room on one end and the dining / family room at the other. The vintage style kitchen has everything you might need including full-sized appliances, coffee maker, toaster oven, dishes for 10 , cooking supplies and so much more (if you have specific questions please ask). Just bring your food and drink! Some spices and basic condiments are customarily available.
Everyone can join in the fun friendly competition in the game room with vintage pinball machine, shuffle board, pool table, air hockey and darts. The game closet will provide hours of fun with board games, Twister, checkers, cards and toys for the young ones.
What’s outside?? Lots of peace and quiet or more fun! A 528 sq ft deck overlooks the lake with plenty of seating and room for dining as well.
Still want more? Tire swing, fire pit with firewood and s’more necessities, horseshoe pits and plenty of run around or whiffle ball room. Plus fishing off the dock-have rods and reels for your use!
And if you have to see “the game” we have a 55” TV in the family room with Direct TV access.

Family of 6. We love to travel and staying at a place that allows us to spread out is great! We love to patronize animal friendly places even though we lost our beloved dog recently. Animal people are our kind of people!
