About Us

This beautiful Mid-century modern home is Brian’s family home, built by his grandfather in 1942. Brian has made a number of significant renovations to make it the contemporary dwelling it is today. Blue Heron Lakehouse has welcomed vacationing guests and business groups from around the world for 14 years.


Brian is an architectural designer who lived in L.A. for 14 years before returning to Seattle to design and build homes with contemporary aesthetics designed around natural features, opening the interior to the beauty of the outdoors.


Leslie is a magazine editor, an award-winning travel writer and the author of two travel-related books, including a Michelin guide to the Pacific Northwest. Her writing expertise encompasses the Northwest, Hawaii and Europe, with an emphasis on Scandinavia.

We look forward to welcoming you to Blue Heron Lakehouse!


We named our place Blue Heron Lakehouse in honor of “Gus,” a great blue heron who is a longtime resident. He loves to hang out on the dock while he's scanning the waters for his next meal.
