This is a wonderful family home with so much to offer the renter all year long! There is a swim pond with a dock for fishing – catch and release only please – or for catching a little sun, there are hiking trails, stunning views, and a lazy hammock for total relaxation. Children will enjoy exploring the little creek running alongside the property. The decks on two levels are both outfitted with Adirondack outdoor furniture, a table with umbrella, gas grill, and a section of the upper level porch screened-in for alfresco living enjoy the outdoors without pesky mosquitoes. There is also an outdoor shower on the ground floor – heaven! In winter explore acres of trails for hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or a sled run are just a step out the door.

Inside, on the upper level, and you will find an updated kitchen with high-end stainless steal appliances, oodles of cabinets, counter space, and cooking gadgets.

There is additional counter space with stools to enjoy a snack or a chat with whomever is cooking. The upper level has the master bedroom suite with a queen bed and a modest full bathroom with tub/shower combination.

This room also opens out to the lower level deck – which leads to all that the great outdoors has to offer. There is a basement area with laundry and a woodworking shop if you are so inclined. The outdoor shower is tucked in a protected nook on the ground floor level that still allows a view for miles!
