A short stroll brings you to beautiful downtown Lee with its newly renovated Main Street, art gallery and a mandatory stop at Lucky's Ice Cream Shoppe.

The main floor of the house is upstairs and includes 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The master bedroom has a private bathroom with shower, a king size Tempurpedic mattress with organic linens and a screened in deck facing a quiet, wooded back yard. The second bedroom consists of a queen size bed with bookcases, TV, and plenty of games to keep everyone occupied all night! Across the hall is the second bathroom with shower and a jacuzzi bathtub.
