Galien house description

It has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, an open living/dining/kitchen area, a brand new ('08) finished rec. basement and a large furnished 2nd floor bedroom loft. The cottage sleeps a total of 12 people.
It is fully furnished with a country-rustic decor throughout. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, utensils, etc., and has a solid wood dining table for 10. There is a large sofa and a wood-burning fireplace in the living room. There's a big TV in the family room loft for your video games. The personal touches in decor along with the themed bedrooms give you the feeling of being in the comfort of your own home. Enjoy beautiful lake views from the living/kitchen area and wooded views from the bedrooms.
P.S. There are no neighbors in sight!

There is a Weber gas grill for your use on the deck along with patio furniture and lawn chairs. There is a large gravel circle driveway leading to the house with room for parking.
