Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: We have had many happy travellers visit the Owls Nest. Our family enjoys Chrismas here every year in this cozy retreat. My Canadian wife gets her sking 'fix' at nearby Wisp. We personally maintain and clean the home before and after each booking.

Why the Owner Chose Oakland:
We bought this property because of the western exposure of the lakefront, location at the end of a peninsula with no drive thru traffic, and deep lake water afforded year round because of close proximity to the dam. The property is four miles from Lodestone and 6 miles from Wisp Ski Resort and offers year round enjoyment. The location is perfect for all water sports.
