Our lake home is a beautiful year round home with a cabin feel but all of the amenities of a home. The home features knotty pine interior with wood floors and a large natural stone fireplace in the center of the cabin. The great room is 2 stories with a wall of windows facing the lake. The outside of the cabin is log.
There is a 55" TV with surround sound speakers in the great room. We have Internet, Direct TV and many DVDs. There is a second flat screen TV in the master bedroom. The great room has a large L shaped couch that seats up to 8 people and more seating and a game table. The sun room on the main level offers additional seating for relaxing.
The kitchen was recently remodeled with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. There are 4 barstools along the kitchen center island. The table in the kitchen seats up to 8.
Inside there are 4 bedrooms with the master bedroom (King) and guest room (2 twins) on opposite sides of the main level. Upstairs there are 2 more bedrooms, one with a queen log bed and the second 'kids' room with 2 twin beds, a trundle & full bed . The kids room is filled with games, toys and books. The loft area is open for extra sleeping (with a pull-out full bed) or relaxing. There are 2 bathrooms in the cabin. The main floor bath has a walk in shower and the 2nd floor bath has a tub/bath combination. We also have central air conditioning for those hot summer days.
We have a huge front deck overlooking the lake. There are 2 dining tables on the deck with seating for 10. Additional comfortable seating across the front of the deck for relaxing with a cup of coffee in the AM or a book in the PM.
A gazebo is located off the side of the deck with a couch, chairs and table. This is a great space for quiet naps or for the kids to play games in.
The property is very private with a rare 450' of lake shore frontage with a huge sand beach in front of the cabin. The water is crystal clear all summer and the elevation is very gradual so it's ideal for children. We have a long dock that can be used for fishing or just sunning. There is also a fire pit on the beach with chairs to enjoy the evenings outdoors. We do spray for both mosquitos and ticks.
We have a 20' pontoon boat (seats 10) and 2 kayaks which are included in the rental. We also have beach toys and bikes for our renters to use.
There is a second refrigerator in the garage for overflow.
Shell Lake is a 2600 acre lake known for it's clean water & sandy beaches. All of the usual lake activities are available. There is a public landing in town so you can bring your boat along. There are bike trails around the lake and we have bikes and helmets for your use.
Please note that the City of Shell Lake recently passed an ordinance limiting the maximum # of occupants in a rental home to 10 so we cannot accommodate any groups larger than 10.
