Big Canoe house description

Enjoy Big Canoe's luxurious lake house with great water/mountain views. Just steps to access swimming, canoeing, pontoon boat activities and fishing for three pound trout that can be seen from the deck on a calm day in the beautiful waters of Lake Petit. This 6300 Sq Ft 'piece of paradise' is one of Big Canoe's most popular rentals for family reunions, weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, golf outings, business meetings, retreats and church or club gatherings.

The two great rooms [on separate floors] allow fantastic 'flow' for family activities yet separation for those in your party wanting to relax in a serene, tranquil mountain ambiance. Both great rooms have huge wood burning fireplaces. One has media center with a 150+ library of VHS/DVD movies for all ages in addition to pool and Ping Pong tables. The upstairs great room has wet bar and adjacent sunroom to enjoy the pristine beauty of nature at its finest.

The oversized kitchen actually seats 13 informally and has ample stemware, flatware and cookware. It has a Sub Zero fridge and has been remodeled with all new stainless appliances. However, it is rivaled by the outdoor kitchen that any chef/grillmaster will love. You can prepare dinner on the deck while enjoying spectacular sunsets that you just have to see to believe.

By stepping off the deck and walking through the two garden patios, you arrive at the canoe launch complete with a 16' Oldtown fiberglass canoe at no extra charge. And a pontoon boat rental is in the very next cove. You can pick up the pontoon boat and be loading the group from our back yard within minutes. Island exploring, mountain viewing, lunch/dinner cruises and fishing junkets are just a few of the amenities only steps from the back door of 'our piece of paradise.'
