The OSPREY NEST is a lakefront home with an extraordinary view both from inside, and outside from the deck and private dock. The lake water is crystal clear and just the right temperature for swimming. Guests can use the ladder at the end of the dock to get into the water or use the spacious dock to sunbathe and watch the boats go by on their way to Bottle Bay Resort just down the lake. Schweitzer Mountain ski runs can be seen from the end of the dock and across the lake, the mountain scene changes constantly in the light providing endless photo opportunities. And if you are an early riser you might see a special bird visitor on the dock, ducks, geese or a blue heron. We're not sure why the the fishing from the dock is especially good but the blue heron takes advantage of it too. Across the road and high up in one of the trees is an eagles nest. Lucky guests may see them soaring or swooping for a fish and they will certainly hear their calls.
Dining on the outdoor deck is the preferred place to eat. The gas barbecue is right outside the kitchen window and it is easy to bring food from the Pullman kitchen to the deck. The bedrooms in the home are located on opposite ends of the home for privacy; the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room are in the center. The cozy living room is paneled in knotty pine and contains a wood stove for those especially cool mornings. The location of the house makes it easy to take advantage of all the things to do in town or run down to Bottle Bay Resort for a casual meal on their dining deck, get boat gas or even rent a boat. There are many hiking trails in the area. One of the best, the Gold Hill trail is just a short walk from the home.
