Enjoy the best of both worlds: woods and lake!!! This unique barnwood covered home is perfect for a quiet couple or a large family gathering. The house is a short, scenic drive through the woods that ends at a small gathering of houses. There are woods on 3 sides of the 3 bedroom, 2 bath chalet. Vaulted ceilings and wood beams add to the open floor plan.
Enjoy the large, two level deck that faces towering trees, wildlife, and undeveloped land on one side of the house, or have some coffee or a cocktail on the balcony on the other side of the house while enjoying the sounds of Cranberry Lake. Grilling is easy with the new gas grill.
The beach access is a 2 minute drive back through the woods and around the corner, or you can make the short walk. The lake has a volleyball net, play area, designated swim area, and picnic tables. The boat launch is just on the other side of the lake. The house provides beach chairs, beach towels, and rafts for you to use. Just pack your swimsuit and head up!
The master bedroom is on the main floor and has an attached master bathroom. The master bath has a full tub/shower and double sinks. The washer and dryer is also located here.
The upstairs is divided into two sleeping SPACES with one room that sleeps 4 and the other room sleeping two. There are NO DOORS, but do have privacy curtains. Both rooms have private, attached balconies for added outdoor space and views. There is no air conditioning upstairs, but the cross breeze from both balcony doors cools things off nicely.
The large family room has plenty of seating to watch the brand new Smart TV or play games. Just log in to your Amazon, Hulu, Netflix, HBO GO, or MLB accounts. It can also be used to surf the internet, as the house has free Wifi. Also, there is a trunk filled with games for all ages, and coloring supplies.
There is a new air conditioner unit that cools the downstairs.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you need, so there's no need to go crazy packing up your extras (plastic wrap, foil, paper towels, spices, condiments, utensils, bakeware, plates/cups, etc. There's even a dishwasher to make your vacation even easier!!! All small appliances are brand new.
Off the kitchen is the 2nd bathroom with a stand up shower.
All linens, towels, and bedding freshly washed and waiting for each renter.
The yard has a fire pit, hammock, and plenty of space for yard games. There is a new 5 foot fenced in separate yard for your four legged family members (pet fees apply).
It's a quick 10 min. drive into the town of Harrison. Harrison has breakfast places, restaurants, bars, grocery stores, a Rite Aid, ice cream stores, fruit markets, and fun local shopping. Lots of menus and local information are provided to you in the Welcome Book in the house.
