Nestled between towers of trees, along peaceful Lake Minterwood, you’ll find an oasis that’s perfect for relaxation and play in the Pacific Northwest.

Start your day by watching the sunrise peek above the lake, on the back deck as you sip your first cup of coffee; that burst of energy waking you up as you dangle your feet over the porch swing, the morning air nipping your toes and listen to the powerful call of the local eagle as he soars through the neighborhood, looking for his morning breakfast in the lake.

Prepare a delicious frittata, baked until fluffy in one of the ovens as the smell of blueberry muffins permeates the kitchen in the second, and enjoy your morning breakfast with guests as you take in the light and view from the windows, the cracking sounds of the fireplace and the laughter that escapes all of you as you plan your day.

Canoeing, kayaking, or perhaps paddle boarding plans to fill up your day. Or maybe you arrange an afternoon of casting a few lines off the dock and catching a couple of bass or trout to throw on the barbecue for dinner. The second deck makes for a wonderful outdoor entertaining space as the french doors open from the living and dining area.

If you enjoy getting your hands dirty, there’s concrete block raised beds for a little gardening and flowers, along with a well manicured yard and spacious flower bed in the front too.


This home is just a few short minutes away from the Lake Minterwood Beach Club – they put on lots of event throughout the year for residents of this community. In the summer months they hold an Annual Kids Fishing Derby, garage sales, and an Annual Picnic – where’s there’s plenty of food, fun and games + you get to know your neighbors! Keep tabs on all upcoming events on the clubs website calendar – they even let you know what days waste and recycling is picked up.

The Lake Minterwood Community is so peaceful because motorized boats aren’t permitted on the lake, but if you do own a motorized boat and are looking for somewhere to drop it for a day on Henderson Bay, the Purdy Boat Launch is just a short 12 minute drive. This little beach area is also a great spot for public clam and oyster digging open April 1 through April 30. There’s a natural production of Manila, littleneck and butter clams and sometimes goeducks when the tide is really low.
