About the Property

2 Bedroom / 2 Full Bathrooms Sleeps 4

An 1890's Cottage, Boathouse and Barn Treasure, family owned since 1960, became Grammy Jo's gem about 2000 to restore. The cottage, boathouse and barn have been renovated with the cottage retaining bead board walls, old floors, yet adding conveniences for ease and enjoyment (like a brand new kitchen!) An artesian well now provides good, clean water. A new septic system provides a worry-free stay - from plumbing problems.
Marvelous stonework, walkway, terrace, and patio line the hillside from the upper parking area - with flowers everywhere. (Weeders welcome!) Suggestions appreciated as Grammy Jo likes to garden.
A new waterfront wall makes sitting at the lakefront a treat, enjoying the scenery of boaters and swimmers and families at play. A wonderful place to find peace.
