Ferndale house description

This cozy little house sits right on Indian/Barnabee Lake. This lake is a quiet no motor lake that offers swimming, (with large floating dock in the center) boating, catch and release fishing (Trout, Bass, Pike). Great little fire pit is lovely on a cool night or any time you feel like a toasted marshmallow!

The house has a wrap around deck, is well decorated with a fully stocked kitchen, clean linens, and for your enjoyment, a canoe, row boat and paddle boat are available.

Ideal for a private couples get away, a small family retreat, or a group of friends to kick back and relax. Stay at home to BBQ or go into town for some fine dining and shopping. Play at home or go out and explore the nearby trails, rapids, and quaint little towns. There is plenty of parking for you and your guests.

                  Car: Necessary

                  The best part of being up here is being here at the house. Not far in any direction will bring you to fine dining, eagles nest, hiking trails, antiquing, concerts at Bethel Woods...so much to explore. We would recommend lunch or dinner at Rolling River Cafe in Parksville and a must see little town is Livingston Manor and Fly fishing capital Roscoe!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: This house has been in our family for 25 years and we purchased it from our in-laws in 2008 because they were selling and we couldnt let it go. We have four children who all grew up swimming there, skating there, skiing nearby, hiking trails...growing up like we wanted them to, in the great outdoors...spying on birds, snakes, deer and rabbits. At the same time we had all the comforts of home as we are not quite the 'rustic' types.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ferndale:
                  This property is great because it is SO EASY! The lake is literally off the back deck. The house is virtually maintanence free. Everything is on one floor (except for the ping pong table and foosball table in the basement along with the washer and dryer) The basement is unfinished but great in a pinch when you need to be inside.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The view of the lake from the living room, kitchen or dining area is terrific in every season at every time of day. Its a great place for summer BBQ and partys or winter festivities and skating.
