Property description

For the 2015 season we have installed wi-fi, are providing access to netflix/huluplus and a new flatscreen tv.
Kyle and Anne purchased this property for personal use in 2004. Job market resulted in a move and they are no longer able to use it as often as they would like. They have rented it out for the past few years. Kyle's parents are right across the street and manage the property for them.
The 100' beach is sandy and the water is shallow for a long distance out, nice for children to play in. There's great swimming farther out, as well. There is a kayak and a canoe for use by responsible renters. If you love to sail and can bring your own boat, you'll probably find great sailing waters while you're up here. There's a nice big deck on the lakeside and smaller deck on the south side of the house for sunny-but-windy days.
Beach walks are wonderful; you can go for miles on the sandy shores. Every freighter going through the Locks goes by the cabin; a telescope is furnished for closer viewing of these magnificent ships.
There is a double bed in the bedroom and a futon that makes into a double bed, so a maximum of four persons is recommended. Guests bring their own sheets and towels. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven/stove, large refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven and electric coffee maker.
There is a working fireplace for cool nights with firewood stacked in the garage. Beach fires are allowed.
Garage is used for bikes, one sailboat, garden equipment and garbage/recycling. Any bicycles/trikes (except the tandem) can be used by guests.
We do have a few easy rules: no smoking, no fireworks, no seagull-feeding, no loud parties.
