Lakefront property is pristine and clear, clean water. There are no large stones or deep spots on the lake edge all the way along the property 165 feet - it does not have a steep slope but gradual with sand and gravel.

Outside covered kitchen is unique as it is only a few feet from water edge allowing families to watch children.
Outside covered area with firepit and bar has a 12 foot wide, padded bench seat that is used for laying, reading or relaxing during the day and is magical listening to the waves lapping on the shore. From the covered firepit area you can hear the small waterfall from the creek only 15 feet away and as it is a Salmon Enhancement creek with small fry that grow daily under the bridge.
Kitchen has three sinks, clean drinking water with a new Britta filter and kitchen outfitted with microwave, new large propane table top cooking area and all cooking needs.
This is a rustic area and has natural habitat to be enjoyed at every turn with a large Fern walk area if someone wants more peace and privacy,
The NEW wharf is large enough to put deck chairs on it while watching the sunset or sunrise.
