However, you do have a TV in your room if there is a program you really want to see. We recognize that all guests may not be into sports, but for our roommates, this is non negotiable :-)
Our house is amazing in the summer, with gorgeous weather and a gorgeous view of the lake. We have a fire pit and during summer months, bon fires are common. We have a fairly large poker night on Thursdays. So if you stay here on Thursday, expect a Poker game that runs very late, and can be a bit loud depending on circumstances of the game. :-)
There is a full bathroom in the hall that you would share with existing male and female roommates. The existing female roommate does have one small dog that is here occasionally, so please, no more animals here.
2 of the roommates like to watch sports, and occasionally there is loud yelling and some expletives. So please, no children visiting or staying.
Our neighborhood is fairly quiet. It is a lake front house with neighbors who love cookouts, fires, boats, jet skis, canoes, etc. We are 4 minutes walk from a large shopping center + public transit. Close to I-5 highway, 15 minutes from Ft. Lewis.
LAKE ACCESS: is limited. We have a dock. However, it has been set up in a land trust for use of 13 surrounding houses. Therefor, it is not private. Expect neighbors to be walking through our yard with canoes, tanning chairs, jet skis, etc. We're very social so if you don't want to make new friends and say hello, this probably isn't the place for you.

Feedback about house from a guest: "The house is a "retro", 50's throwback, bungalow style. Being a total decor and architect junkie- I appreciated it; but, I don't know if someone who is used to staying in hotels would dig it."
