Property description

This property is an architecturally designed cottage in a peaceful setting on the shore of a non-recreational lake where birds and wildlife abound. No noisy water sports here, but hiking, mountain biking and kayaking all lie at your doorstep. There are also many beautiful lakes in the area suitable for swimming and fishing.

The cottage is a 10 minute drive north of town, with easy access off the main highway.

This cottage was built in 2013, and features an efficiency kitchenette, and a comfortable queen bed in a separate sleeping area.

In winter this cottage retreat features a heated concrete floor that is wonderful for cool footed visitors. Summer visitors will find the seasonally unheated concrete floors, an abundance of screened windows, and ceiling fans naturally cool the space, lending increased comfort during hot weather.

An enclosed porch features a wood burning fireplace and a casual indoor eating area for your enjoyement.

Suitable for a romantic retreat, or as a peaceful setting for artists, writers and nature lovers alike to just sit back and be inspired. Sunset views are spectacular in this cozy, comfortable, and well appointed hideaway.

Bring your mountain bike, and canoe or kayak in the summer, or take advantage of the horseback trail riding options offered in the area.

In winter don't forget to bring your cross country or downhill skis. The area features extensive cross country ski trails, and when the lake is frozen we love to ski on the snow covered ice there. Mount Timothy is a small downhill ski resort within a 45 minute drive.

Why the Owner Chose 100 Mile House:
When we purchased this property we saw the potential to build something unique that would respond to the peaceful natural setting, and the studio building that we built in 2013 does exactly that.
