Florence house description

Located in a secluded natural setting, the Nicholson Lakehouse is a single level home nestled in a cove on picturesque Munsel Lake. The Lakehouse sleeps 6 people, if 2 sleep on the fold-out double bed/couch in the living room. (Each bedroom has a queen bed.)

As you enter the house, beautiful views of the lake spread out before you through large picture windows framing the lake. The open living room/dining room/kitchen area is spacious and inviting. A sliding glass door opens to an expansive deck overlooking the lake framed by rhododendron and huckleberry bushes. A short trail leads to your own private dock. Use our canoe, kayaks, or boat. Or launch your own watercraft at the near-by public boat ramp and moor at the Lakehouse dock. Seasonal water lilies dot the lake with color. Wildlife such as ducks, bald eagles, blue heron, osprey, and otters are often seen.

The Nicholson Lakehouse is a peaceful get-away on warm summer days, or on blustery rainy ones. Enjoy sunshine-filled days of swimming and boating--or curl up with a book beside the fire crackling in the wood stove to watch raindrop patterns in the lake. Either way, it's a most pleasant place to be. MIKE IS NOT ALWAYS AVAILABLE BY E-MAIL. PLEASE CALL HIS CELL (541-510-4989) FOR THE QUICKEST RESPONSE.

Notes on Munsel Lake: 110 acres/rainbow trout stocked several times a year/bass, perch & bluegill

                  Year Purchased: 1975

                  About the owner: We kids inherited the Nicholson Lakehouse a couple of years ago. Our parents, long-time Florence residents, built this special home for our family. Now our families continue to enjoy this place of respite, and we're delighted to share it with others.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The house is uniquely situated in a cove of Munsel Lake surrounded by forest and natural landscape. A visually friendly railing allows one to sit inside the house or out on the deck while enjoying serene views of the lake and trees. With only a few homes on the north side of lake, and no homes directly across the lake from our home, the setting is extremely private and peaceful. Watch the sun come up in the morning over the trees across the lake, and watch the colors fade out on those same trees, when the sun sets behind you at night. It's a wonderful place for bird and wildlife watching. Ducks, geese, eagles and osprey are a few of the inhabitants with whom we share the lake. A path leads down to the water and to a sturdy dock equipped with a canoe, boat and kayaks, available to use for fishing or for exploring the lake. 10 minutes away is Old Town Florence with good shopping and dining. Across Hwy 101 is the ocean with miles of beach to walk. Heceta Head Lighthouse just north of us offers hiking trails and lighthouse tours. There are also commercial sand dune buggy rides available close by.
