About Kim and Arne Schrider

Welcome to Gone Fishin' Cabin, our home away from home in the Northwest! My husband and I both have busy careers. And like most working parents, we are challenged by balancing family needs with work schedules. The cabin is our little Puget Sound waterfront get away from the chaos of normal life. Here, we can enjoy a stroll on the beach with the sea breeze in our hair, take in the amazing oceanfront view while sipping our morning coffee, and listen to the crashing waves from the deck lounge. And the best part, the kids can play on the beach, go clamming, learn to fish or kayak in front of the cabin. Happy memories are made of these...!

Kim and Arne Schrider purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Kim and Arne Schrider chose Washington

Gone Fishin' Cabin is in the amazing Puget Sound and within an hour from Seattle. We're super family friendly. It's easy to travel to the cabin, either by Ferry or by road. It's in a small rural village, but also close to Gig Harbor, a seaside port with a pedestrian waterfront, quaint shops, restaurants, and all amenities.

What makes this cabin unique

As a family, we love just hanging out by the water and enjoying a relaxing time BBQing, fishing, crabbing, clamming, kayaking, snuggling with a book, or playing board games. When we feel really ambitious, then we go for a long walk on the beach. Taking it easy is what we enjoy best at the cabin.

Great get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two kids under 3) stayed here for a week. Small, but clean and cute house that was well stocked for everything we needed to enjoy our stay. My husband and I were able to enjoy some peace and quite while the kids played on the playground or hid away in the crab shack. The rock beach that is available at low tide was fun to explore and the private sandy beach (5 minute walk) was beautiful and a perfect spot for the kids and us to run around and build sand castles together. We had several fabulous dinners with friends out on the deck while enjoying the incredible views. The deck is completely enclosed with fencing so perfect for keeping little ones in view and safe. We were even able to drop some crab pots out in front of the cabin and enjoy some fresh crab for dinner one evening.

Great place to get away for peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean and comfortable. Also, the location is very quiet and peaceful with a beautiful view. We enjoyed the ferry rides when we wanted to go to Seattle or other places but the cabin is a great place just to hang out.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy home with an absolutely gorgeous view! The rainbows over the water were unlike anything we had ever seen, what a treat! The kids enjoyed the playground and crab shack, and the bald eagle that frequented the area was lovely. Thanks for sharing your home!
