Vesuvius house description

This charming 2000 sq. ft. lake house retreat is an absolute pleasure to visit. The location is ideal, being 5 minutes driving from town and the Vesuvius and Long Harbour ferry. The house is truly beautiful and the lake is one of a kind.

As you enter the home, you are greeted with a large living area featuring a fabulous fireplace. There is a spacious dining room that can seat 6 comfortably and a large and functional kitchen. There are state of the art laundry facilities on the main floor for your convenience.

The main floor boasts a spacious bedroom with Queen sized bed and large closet with a full bathroom just a few steps away with stand-up shower. Up the stairs on the second floor, there is another large bedroom with Queen sized bed, large window with a view onto the park-like yard, and a full bathroom with shower/tub just steps away. There is an option of having a single bed made available as well.

This home can sleep 5 people maximum. Well-behaved pets are welcome in the house and the yard is fully fenced to accommodate them.

Enjoy a wonderful feeling of peace and tranquility as you use the two covered patios. The 2nd floor patio has a great view of the lake. The lower patio is ideal for entertaining with a barbecue and comfortable seating.

Just a short stroll down to the beach for a swim or paddle. Only a 5 minute drive to a boat launch for ocean boating/fishing. Cycle, hike or walk to your heart's content in this island paradise!
