About the Property

2 bedroom, 2 bath with 160' lake frontage (sleeps 2-4)

Bristol Lake is a 166 acre all-sports lake. Enjoy the lake view while sitting outside on a large patio with picnic table and gas grill, with only a few steps down to your own private dock. Inside this recently constructed cottage, stairs lead to an open, loft-style sleeping area that includes one queen bed and two single beds, connected by an open hallway and half bath. Open floor plan downstairs includes living, dining, sitting area, bar and full kitchen and full bath, including tub. The fully furnished kitchen features refrigerator, microwave, stove/oven and dishwasher. Television with DISH TV and DVD player.

Because of the open layout of the loft style sleeping area, the cottage is best suited for a small family or couple. Recommended maximum number of guests is 4.

PLEASE NOTE: We prefer to rent by the week but will consider a MINIMUM 3 night rental, EXCEPT DURING HOLIDAY WEEKS (Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day). Holiday weeks are available for 7 night/weekly rental ONLY!

If you rent for less than a week, the daily rate is higher but sheets and towels are provided.

We do not accept credit cards. Please contact us for payment information.
