You Owe It To Yourself! Late Summer Is The Best Time On The Lake!
About Dave McFarland
Dave and Robin McFarland We are business owners living in Seattle with adult children and grandchildren. We love to travel all over the world. Our vacation rental home has it all from the friendly courteous service , to the luxury of the accommodations , the physical beauty of the location on the lake with nature so close by. We know you will love it here.
Dave McFarland purchased this House in 2001
Why Dave McFarland chose Picnic Point-North Lynnwood
We selected Lake Serene because it is ideally situated for recreation in any direction. . This home is so close to the water, you'll see lake from nearly every room. The great room is so spacious it is hard to capture in pictures. 8 guests can stay without feeling crowded--the whole family can be together, or you can retreat to many different areas.
What makes this House unique
It doesn't get closer to the water! Our home is a Northwest Contemporary style, designed to maximize beautiful views of water from nearly every room. The home has been completely remodeled, with an eye to preserving the home's views of the lake. The dock and lake access allow swimming, paddling, boating, or simply play. The kitchen has space for multiple cooks, and the whole family can sit down and eat together. High quality mattresses, linens, and seating are found throughout the home. This area of Washington is well known for both Summer and Winter sports. Enthusiasts from near and far visit for hiking, biking (road and mountain), skiing (Nordic and Alpine), snow shoeing, boating, fly fishing, rock climbing, etc. Each Spring, the lake is stocked with Bass and Trout and guests can enjoy fishing right from our dock. There is no other place so close to Seattle affording such quality accommodations, privacy and natural beauty. We feel this is a very special property and believe you will feel the same way after visiting.

Forget your other plans, you won't want to leave!
We had a sister's get away for a few days and had lots of plans but after seeing the home, we hung out on the back deck most of the time enjoying the view and the quiet. Robin and Dave could not have been more accommodating and kind to us. We were greeted with fresh flowers, a lovely bag of coffee and a tour of the home. There are two living areas which I missed in the original overview, nice surprise. The kitchen was
fully equipped with all the things you need and want. I would suggest you stop by the house before shopping because all the spices and condiments are already there. Nearby is a Safeway and a drug store.
We missed the entrance the first time because we were expecting the house to be on the street but you drive down a long driveway and are transported to a place that you'd have no idea was there. The privacy was an unexpected surprise with the rest of the world just gone. We can't speak highly enough of this lake house, if you have any qualms about this being too good to be true, banish the thought!
Thank you Elaine for such a GREAT review!!! I really enjoyed meeting all of you. How nice of you and your sisters to spend time together like this! So glad you enjoyed the house and back deck, we would love to have all of you back again anytime! Thanks
Great stay at the Lake House!
The Lake House is a beautiful and clean property right outside the hustle and bustle of Seattle. There was plenty of space for 3 couples - each couple had their own bedroom and full bathroom. The home is updated and very clean, has lots of amenities and comes with everything you could think of. The owners were very easy to communicate with and were considerate in ensuring we had everything we needed for a great stay. Thanks again!
Hi Kaitlyn, thank you sooooo much for the great review! We're so glad you enjoyed the house and have everything you needed. We really hope all of you come back again! Thank you also for cleaning the house so beautifully before you left, we sure appreciate you doing that!
A cozy, serene lakesde retreat.
Quiet, peaceful, with kayaks and a canoe!
Hi Sunny! It was so much fun meeting you all. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us, please come back again when you can!!
Perfect house and location!
This property is amazing! The location on the water is great for the entire family and the convenience of having all the kayaks and small boat was nice. The house was extremely clean and wonderful. Couldn’t of had a better experience!
Hi Kayla, thank you so much for the great review! We're so glad you and your family had such a good time at our Lake House. Please come back any time, really enjoyed meeting all of you!
This home is amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Robin and David are delightful. Robin met us upon our arrival and showed us around. She even provided a bouquet of fresh flowers from her garden for us to enjoy! The house is immaculate and the decor and furnishings are stylish and comfortable. The kitchen is very well stocked...from pots and pans, spices, paper products, dishes and glassware, to plastic plates to use outside on the deck. We loved using the kayaks and paddle boat to explore the lake. Our favorite thing to do in the evenings was to grab our favorite beverage, head out to the gazebo, turn on the gas fire pit, snuggle up in our blankets, and watch the sunset across the lake. So relaxing! The outdoor living space is beautiful. We made use of the grill and ate outside..enjoying the beautiful flowers in the garden. We couldn't believe such a serene setting could be located so close to all of the amenities of a big city. I would highly recommend this home and am so appreciative of the hospitality provided by David and Robin. Cheers. Beth and Mike
Oh my gosh Beth & Mike, thank you soooo much for the great review! I know what you mean about the sunsets being so beautiful, it never gets old :) Please come back again, we would love to share our home with you anytime!!!
