About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Welcome to our summer home at the Sandbar in West Alton on beautiful Lake Winnipesauke. While the Sandbar property has been in our family for over 100 years, we have recently completed construction of a 2200 SF 4 bedroom, 3.5-bath log home. In designing the new home our goal was to preserve the historic flavor, build a new home that blends attractively into the surrounding area and still create a living environment of quality and comfort, equipped with contemporary amenities. The home is located on a one acre lot with 275 feet of frontage for maximum privacy. The sandy bottom shoreline with a gradual drop off, makes for a great swimming area for the kids. We invite you to enjoy a vacation at the Sandbar and believe you will find it a fun and unique vacation destination in the lakes region.

The first floor has four rooms in an open floor concept. It lends itself to a comfortable flow from room to room while also allowing for separate groupings in different areas. The large kitchen/dining area is 18X24 and the nine-foot high ceilings give a sense of spaciousness. There are granite countertops with custom cabinets above and below. There are four barstools around the kitchen island. The dining room table seats 10. The kitchen/dining area has French doors opening to the screened porch that is only 20 feet from the lake.

The family room, with a cathedral ceiling to a height of 30’, is the focal point of the house. It is 28X20 including the entry way under the loft. The massive granite fireplace with comfortable seating, makes for a very relaxing setting.

On the other side of the family room is the 18X16 TV/game room. The French doors from this room lead to an open deck looking over the beach with a southeastern view of the lake. All first floor rooms have panoramic views of the lake and surrounding mountains. There is also a full bath and laundry on the first floor.

The second floor master bedroom has a ¾ bath and a king size bed. The second bedroom has a queen bed plus a set of bunks. The loft area has a very comfortable single sofa bed. There is also an additional ¾ bath on the second floor. These rooms also offer great lakeside views.

There are 2 lower level bedrooms, one with twin beds and one with a queen. In 2013 we upgraded this area with new floor covering, more fully finished bathroom and pine trim throughout. Additional sleeping capacity is afforded by the trundle bed for two in the beach cabana. The cabana is a 12X12 log sided bunkhouse located right on the beach. It offers extra privacy for kids or grownups just wanting to get away from the crowd.

The interior amenities include (6) TVs, (42' flat panel with HD service in the family room) including one on the beach so you don’t have to choose between the beach and the game, wireless high-speed Internet access, VCR and DVD players and stereo. On the outside there is abundant deck and beach furniture, 2 kayaks 2 paddle boats and an aluminum rowboat. There is also a gas grill and a self-contained fire pit. The 30’ dock will accommodate boats to 20’

The Sandbar is still our family vacation home. We only rent a few weeks each year. When we do rent, we do not remove all our personal belongings and family momentos. The house is equipped with basic kitchen, bath and cleaning supplies. We encourage you to enjoy our home to the fullest while keeping in mind it contains the cherished artifacts of our family history. We will also provide bed linens and bath towels for up to 10 people for an additional $100 fee. We do not provide beach towels.

The rental rate does not include the $250 cleaning fee.
