Property description

The Beaver Lodge is a gem hidden in the woods surrounding Gorrel Lake. The log lodge is on the lake, and provides a nice private setting for your vacation. There are only 3 houses on the entire lake. Enjoy the lake from the sun deck at the end of the pier, the provided pontoon boat, or one of the other smaller boats provided at no additional fee for your use.

You will find The Beaver Lodge to be fully furnished for your use. The kitchen/dining/gaming area downstairs is often a 'hub' of activity, with a fully stocked kitchen, washer and dryer,dishwasher, pool table, video games, foosball, air hockey, board games, cable TV, full bathroom, and much more. The glass/screened porch off this level provides a hot tub and sitting area.

On the main level, you will find the wet bar, family room with Satilite TV, fireplace, and a nice vaulted ceiling with a view of the loft area. The 'Lake View' bedroom on this level has a queen bed. The second of three full baths is on this floor in the hallway between the bedrooms. The 'Library' bedroom on this floor has a set of bunk beds. Off this level, you will find a nice glass/screen enclosed porch area (best room in the house ) facing the lake.

Upstairs you will find the loft, often the favorite sleeping area of younger guests. It has two sets of bunk beds, and a nice view of the family room ,the electric train that chuggs around the the open space above the main level, and the fireplace. There is also the 'Grand View' Bedroom with a queen bed, the 'West View' bedroom also with a queen bed, and the third full bath located in the hallway between the bedrooms. All 4 bedrooms are fully furnished with quality furniture befitting the true log cabin interior.

The outdoor area provides a nice area to relax; lay in the hammock, picnic in the gazebo, stroll through the woods, or sit around the fire-pit.
