Property description

Enjoy a perfect family vacation in a newly remodeled lakehouse on Lake Panorama. The home is a south-facing single story ranch. It sits on a peninsula which is a unique feature for the lake, and which permits 180 degree views from inside and out.

This 3 bedroom / 3.5 bath home has room to sleep 10 in bed. The large open format in the main living area is ideal for large family gatherings. The 2-fridge/2-sink kitchen is sure to handle your culinary needs. The front living space is bordered by lake-view windows on three sides, inviting the outside-in.

The front yard is at water level, no stairs to climb and no hills to roll-down. Ideal for spending time with the young ones and grandparents alike. Its also great for setting up an outdoor canopy/tent.

Amenities include: a small private beach, outdoor hot-tub, gas grill, adjustable height basketball hoop, private docks, outdoor fire-pit, indoor wood burning stove, free cable with DVR and wifi, 55 inch flatscreen and DVD player

The lot is 1.25 acres with 260 feet of lake front. House size is 2482 sq ft. Attached garage is 796 sq ft and the lakeside deck is1150 sq ft.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My brother, Gary Rottler originally purchased this property in 1993. In 2007 he rebuilt the house into his dream home naming it Ketchikan in honor of our father who died while fishing in Ketchikan, Alaska which he had been doing every summer for years. After Gary's premature death from cancer I purchased the property from his estate in an attempt to keep it in the family. Since I have a house nearby we would like to rent this house when not in use by family to help pay the freight. The LPA Board in their infinite wisdom has decided to limit rentals to one per month in an attempt to stop short term rentals but still allow monthly or longer rentals. We've had to go to a 7 day minimum since we can only rent it once per month. Steven Rottler

Why the Owner Chose Lake Panorama:
The 2007 remodel was done by Priestly Construction using top of the line materials. Geothermal heating and cooling was also installed. The irrigated lakeside lawn is large, flat and nicely shaded. The lake views are fantastic.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great fishing right off the dock or from shore.
