3 Bdr, 3FB, private, waterfront home with over 300' of shoreline

The Sweet Retreat is a very private, 3 bedroom, 3 full bath home with a gradually sloping lot to 312' of waterfront and a bonus, cozy(small) beach area. This beautifully decorated home includes a large living area with a gas fireplace, a large flat screen TV, and plenty of seating for friends and family. A large dining area has a custom dining table made from reclaimed lumber from a pre-1880 barn and is large enough to seat 10 adults comfortably with a combination of benchs and chairs. A fully stocked, updated kitchen features stainless appliances, granite countertops and a custom, natural slab wood bar. All three comfy bedrooms include new mattresses. The master suite, with a gorgeous lake view includes a large master bath with a walk--in shower and double bowl, granite-topped vanity. A full size washer and dryer is located on the main floor. The large sunroom finishes off the main living area with a sectional sofa and incredible views of both the lake and woods.

Outside is where you will want to stay after you step out onto the deck that runs the width of the home, complete with a dining area and plenty of seating. You will have plenty of peace and quiet as you enjoy the wide water view. A large open dock is just a short walk down a gradual slope. Deep water will make it easy to tie your boat up to the floater. And you don't have to be worried about boat traffic being too close to swimming areas. Just a few steps away is a fire pit just waiting to make both memories and s'mores. You can also enjoy a game of cornhole on a nice flat area of lawn. There is plenty of parking and an area to park a boat trailer.

This is an extremely private location at the end of a cul-de-sac with wide water views. The Sweet Retreat won't disappoint you!

About Mary Lou Holtzman

Mary Lou and her husband purchased the Sweet Retreat in December 2014 as a family retreat and rental property. We currently live in Elizabethtown, PA where both work for a chocolate company. We love being able to take long weekend trips down to the lake to enjoy all that the area has to offer. We look forward to making memories with family and friends and wish the same for all who stay at the Sweet Retreat.

Mary Lou Holtzman purchased this House in 2014

Why Mary Lou Holtzman chose Huddleston

We chose this property for the spectacular water view. Just step out onto the deck and you can see why we fell in love with and ultimately purchased this property. The neighborhood is quiet and very private.

What makes this House unique

The Sweet Retreat is located at a more peaceful end of the lake in a large open cove. However, it won't take you long to reach the big open water if that is what you like. Everything you need is just a short drive away - groceries, entertainment, restaurants.

                                                            Beautifully maintained home in a wonderful location

                                                            Michelle D.

                                                            Family had a wonderful time hangin at the house enjoying each others company. The home had many fun amenities to include kayaking (everyone’s favorite), air hockey (kids favorite), 2 fire pits, awesome dock (wish it was warm enough to swim), board games, outside games and movies. House was nicely decorated (need Mary Lou to come to my house and give me some pointers 😀). There was also a family of deer that lived in the woods next to us and came to visit on a daily basis. Definitely looking to return as soon as possible.

                                                            Loved, loved, loved this place!

                                                            Perfect getaway spot! Loved the house, and all the nice little extra touches make it very homey. The deck and dock are fabulous, and we loved the fire pit too. I hope to go back in the near future and highly recommend this rental.

                                                            Lovely experience for weekend getaway!

                                                            The home was extremely comfortable and the lakefront lot was amazing. I would love to come back during summer months to enjoy the water and see more of the lake. We had fun cooking in the big kitchen and relaxing on the deck. You really feel like you are away from it all which was helpful for us to rewind...I wish we could have stayed longer!

                                                            GREAT EXPERIENCE

                                                            WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE .

                                                            Relaxing and wonderful

                                                            My husband, golden doodle Patton and I spent a week at this wonderful home the first week of January. The house is well decorated, very clean, comfortable and had a well stocked kitchen. The yard is HUGE with a very nice dock. It was quite cold since it was January but there were kayaks, yard games and a wonderful fire pit to use. The owner is highly responsive while you are there too. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. I'm hoping we can go back when it's warmer so we can take advantage of all the amenities!

                                                            Fantastic place!
