Reading house description

This is a beautiful, year -round cottage with secluded location on very large lot and expansive lake front. It sits on the smallest of three lakes that interconnect by channels. There is a dock, rowboat, floating dock for swimming. Firepit allows campfires. There are three bedrooms on the first floor, one of which doubles as a sunroom. One and a half bath's on first floor. The house faces the lake with large picture windows on an acre lot, bordered on one side by woods. The location provides beautiful sunset views. No high speed boating is allowed on Carpenter Lake, therefore it is very peaceful. However, a 5 minute motor through an adjacent channel gets one to Hemlock Lake where waterskiing, sailing,and jet skiing is abundant
