Adjacent to the garden is a large firepit (fabricated w/ a custom cooking grill), picnic site and a 16'x16' canvas platform tent outfitted with 6 cots which is also sited for perfect lake and sunset views.

The upper level of the boathouse has a living room with a queen pull out coach, kitchenette and 1/2 bath.
