This cottage accommodates up to 8 guests, with 3 bedrooms, trundel bed area and 1 large bathroom. It is perfect for summer vacations, year round getaways, wine tour vacations, and fishing/hunting trips. The lake has 23 miles of crystal clear water to explore and enjoy.

The spacious resort property offers a playground for children, a basketball court, volleyball, horseshoes, and plenty of space for other activities. There are 3 shared fire pits located on the water's edge, as well as a gazebo. Unique to this property is a private, protected harbor with a boat slip for a small boat up to 20 feet, and parking for your boat trailer. The marina has been completely redone in June 2015 with new break wall and docks. There is a boat launch conveniently located 1 mile south of the resort.
