Year Purchased: 2010
About: We came from a southern state to find the cool and calm of the Northern woods on motor vacations and decided that we needed to have some roots here; we found this home, crafted by a boat builder, that reminded us of our families' vacations in the woods. That was it; we saw it and bought it in January(!); we would like to share it with you and yours when we are not there.
It is a finely crafted home; unique features such as private deck off the master bedroom; and most unique free-standing fireplace; a full waterside porch this is screened in summer, windowed in fall and winter.The pond is a delight for kayaking, conoeing, swimming, and meditating in our waterside deck. There are few cottages or homes on the pond which adds to the peace. We had to be there to escape the city and the summer heat.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will love to take advantage of the decks; screened porch, free-standing fireplace; and in the evening, roasting 'dogs' and marshmellows at the open firepit. You will want to 'picnic' on the waterfront deck and the floating dock. Then spread out on the new lawn behind the rock retaining wall. For the really BIG family (more than 8 sleeping? 2+ generations?) we can also share a neighboring cabin we built as a separate stand alone 'camp'. Check 'Loon Landing' Franklin, on HomeAway as well.
