No where in the world can you experience the breath taking views while feeling you are at home away from home. This gem of a cottage with a spectacular boathouse is everything you could want in a cottage, from the proximity to the water (a stone throw away), a gradual slope to the water, a large boathouse with a huge amount of deck space, perfect for relaxing with friends, and docking space for boat parking. In addition, this cottage is located on a very quiet dead end street so traffic and noise is minimal.
