Roy designed and built the cottage to have a log cabin feel. With cedar plank lined walls (wood harvested from the land here) and a wood stove/fireplace we believe he accomplished exactly that. Featuring a full size pool table, queen size sofa bed and queen size bed, large screen television with free premium channels (HBO and music) the bathroom features a tiled walk in shower. The kitchen boasts a full size refrigerator, microwave, toaster and both Keurig and standard coffee makers. Surrounded by pines, cedars, maples and birch trees you feel as if you are in a tree house. There is an incredible amount of varied birds and wildlife to enjoy viewing. Over the years some of the wildlife we have seen here are deer, squirrels, coyotes, otters, bobcats and bear to name a few. Birds we have seen include chicadees, cardinals, goldfinches, indigo buntings, hawks, owls and bald eagles.
In 2016 through incredible patience over several months Debby was eventually able to get a wild deer to eat out of her hand!
The driveway used to be an old railroad grade. If you walk down the grade past the red gates you will eventually come to a cement cistern (we have also heard it was a cement weigh station but we have not been able to verify either one). These cisterns (water collection sites) were used for coal steam engines on the trains. We have enjoyed finding all sorts of old jugs, spikes, bottles, oil lamps, etc along the grade over the years.
In the yard there is a fire pit (we have plenty of wood for your use!) for campfire stories and s'mores. There are lawn games such as croquet and corn-hole for your use also.
Yes we are pet friendly (additional pet fee).
