Historic Log Cabin with wide open water views. Great for fun on the water.
A big thank you to all of our 2017 five star guests!
What's new for 2018? We will have two person canoe or kayak and a paddle board for your use.
You will step back in time when you stay at this preserved historic log house (circa 1790). The old log house is now equipped with a galley kitchen that has an electric stove, ref.,kk sink, blender, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, and stacked washer/dryer. There is a dining area adjacent to the kitchen, as well as another on the lake front outside porch. The second room on the main floor is a living area with TV/DVD, futon, and hammock which is great for naps.
The second floor of the log home has a bath with pedestal sink, toilet, and bath tub. There are two bedrooms upstairs (one large bedroom with two twin beds and a queen bed; the second bedroom with a queen bed). Each bedroom has its own pedestal sink. But don't worry, this old log house now has central air conditioning and heat as well as a fireplace and wood stove downstairs!
This interesting and unique old log cabin is located on very private, wooded property and is geared to outdoor fun and living. In addition to the inside bathroom, there is an outdoor shower with hot/cold water. A covered outdoor cooking area with a 5 burner gas grill, under counter ref. and water is available for added convenience. If you prefer cooking out with charcoal or wood, there is also a lakeside fire pit and charcoal grill with water. The dock area is large, with a table, umbrella, slide, and rope swing. The beach is sandy and gently sloping which is great for small children. Also, two kayaks along with other lake toys are available for use. The fun won't stop when the sun goes down, because the dock, all cooking areas, and paths are well illuminated with outdoor lighting.
This property is located on a peninsula in a small community with a quiet private road that's great for family walks or jogging.

Peaceful Lakefront Cabin
This cabin is rustic, yet updated with modern amenities. The attention to detail is unbelievable. We loved the outdoor shower - absolutely magical! This owner goes above and beyond to ensure a comfortable stay! He put fresh flowers in nearly every room, had luxuriously plush bathrobes there for our use, and had wood chopped and ready to burn. The boat dock was in great shape! I will definitely be staying here again!!!!
Was a fantastic log cabin from the 1700s. Very comfortable. Rustic and cozy. If the walls could talk. Beautiful lake.
Awesome rustic property!!
The owner David Oliver was very friendly and helpful with details of the property. Will definitely stay again !! Thanks

Amazing Old log cabin!
This place is amazing! Had a great relaxing time hanging out on the pier and fishing. Enjoying the awesome sounds of the rain hitting the tin roof. The landscape of this property is awesome! Really well kept! They really have it set up with everything you need. Thanks again for letting us stay in the cabin.
