Property description

This Scandinavian inspired beach cottage located on the banks of Lake Marion in East Marion offers water views from every angle. Situated just a 1/2 block from Gardiners Bay it’s an easy 5-minute stroll, either via beach or road, to a small, quiet community beach. But if all you’re looking for is some sand between your toes there’s a small bay beach located just steps from the front door.

The interior is awash in light with bleached wood floors and a white-washed, vaulted, wood ceiling. The furnishings are stylish and minimal with an eclectic mix of modern, Danish Modern, industrial and vintage. The living room opens out through French doors to a cozy screened porch. Throw open both doors to connect the living room and kitchen and view of the lake. The master bedroom has just what you need, a queen-sized bed with white Egyptian cotton bedding. And the back sitting room, with a small work table and daybed covered in cozy pillows, opens out through a set of French doors to a wood deck and Lake Marion. It's where you can grab a morning coffee, plan your day and watch the swans and geese go about their day. A hammock swings from the Maple tree, and a red canoe beckons to be taken for a spin. New modern appliances in the kitchen, WiFi, AC and a quiet ceiling fan, make your stay comfortable. No TV makes your stay peaceful.

It’s an easy walk or bike ride to the village market and farm-stand, and just a bit further to the local vineyard.

Stylish and casual. BlackBox is the perfect haven for a North Fork get-away for two.
