If you are looking for a Full Service Vacation Home big enough for 'the whole gang' - this is it ! With all the Modern Conveniences in an Up North Lodge Setting. Built in 2001 the house has a current floor plan and amenities you won't find in most other vacation homes in the area. Central A/C which is not needed often, but comes in handy when you do. All bedding - sheets, blankets, pillows etc.. and bath & kitchen towels are provided. Bring your Beach Towels and Bath Supplies. Four nice size bedrooms & a loft for sleeping arrangements. Master Bedroom & Bath has it's own 8 foot glass sliding door to the deck. Also has a jacuzzi tub in the bedroom, & a large walk in shower in the bathroom w/a glass block wall between them. Three other bedrooms are near bathroom # 2. And the Loft is above the Dining & Kitchen and overlooks the Living Room & All glass front overlooking the lake and deck. All this is 2300 sq ft. And an additional 1900 sf lower level. NO PETS NO SMOKING please
In addition to the 2300 sq ft of living space upstairs is a 1900 sq ft semi finished walk out lower level.. 2 twin beds, ping pong table, books, games, a 3rd full bathroom, kitchen sink & 2nd frig. Three large windows over look the lake, and a 6 ft glass sliding level walks out to beautiful lake views and stairs down to the dock and waterfront. This house is situated right next door to Harolds Resort and has access to it's Beach - The Best Beach on Spider Lake ! Sandy, Shallow, Safe & Warm - located a 1-2 minute walk from the house to the point of the private peninsula where the Beach is located. Also you have access to the HR fish cleaning hut if you would like to clean your catch and have a fish fry. There are several choices for having a fire in the evening.. HR has a community bon fire pit down by the lake shore, you have your own 'chiminea' on your deck ( a little cast iron fireplace ) and a bon fire pit in the back yard and there is a wood burning fireplace in the Living Room ( see pictures.. ).
Spider Lake is a 459 Acres All Sports Lake with 'fast boating' limited to the hours of 11 am - 7: 30 pm. So the morning and evening hours are quiet and great for fishing or just going for a pontoon boat cruise. Even during the middle of the day, there are places on the lake that are no wake all the time, and you can find a quiet place for some R & R or fishing. I say the lake is shaped like a 'squashed spider' with some big sections, bays, coves, and long legs, you can go out every day and get lost in a different place !
Bath Towels provided - Bring BEACH towels - our towels do not go outside
A starter supply of: paper & soap provided, such as: TP, garbage bags,soft soap at sinks, laundry, dish etc.....moreless
