The second bedroom has a full bed and private bath. Laundry room with washer and dryer also has a half bath. Upstairs is like a dorm room with 3 sleeping berths that have queen beds, reading lights, and curtains to draw for privacy. The dorm and also has a bunkbed and a single cot. This gives the dorm the ability to sleep up to 9 people. This cottage is great for bringing 1 or 2 dogs. There are two outdoor dog runs giving your pets plenty of space to hang out when unattended.
This location lends itself to all sorts of outdoor activities. Biking, walking, and jogging. Boating, water skiing, fishing, jet skiing, and sailing. Canoeing and tubing local rivers.
