This gorgeous year-round home is meant to sleep 8-10 people. The house is centered around a 30'x18' great room that includes the living room and dining room. There is a fireplace in the living room for cozy wood fires. On one side of the great room is the master bedroom. It has a queen-size bed in it and has a bathroom with shower next to it. On the other side of the great room are two more bedrooms with two twin beds in each. These two bedrooms share a full bathroom. There is a fourth bedroom in the studio, which is a separate structure about 4 feet away from the main house. It is joined by a covered walkway to the house but you do have to step outside. This spacious bedroom has a queen bed and also a queen sleeper sofa, so possibly four people could sleep in this room. The studio has a powder room with toilet and a sink but no bath facilities. This bedroom is lined with bookcases full of books. It is great for someone who likes their privacy. The lakeside of the great room has floor-to-ceiling windows and beyond that, a 30'x15' wood deck that overlooks Lake Michigan and is wonderful for sunning, lake watching, eating or just relaxing. The house sits on a bluff overlooking the lake so you are almost at treetop level. The house also has a wonderful kitchen, fully equipped for eating and cooking. It even has a double oven, microwave, dishwasher, and more.
There are many other amenities to this house including a washer and dryer in the laundry room, outdoor grill, outdoor deck furniture, wood for fireplace, DVD player (no TV reception, but you can play movies), a library of books and other niceties. The house is beautifully decorated. I'm sure you would love this house. It is very peaceful and private. No other places are visible and it is surrounded by cedar woods. It is on the lake and gets fabulous sunset views because it faces west. You can see more pictures of the beautiful Young house on our website, washingtonislandcottages. If this house is too big, there are two smaller ones available. If you decide to rent the Young house, you might just decide to move to the island!
