About Suzanne Patterson

We purchased what was originally a small cabin in 2011, the same year we lost our main house in a fire. We lived in the tiny structure for the summer and knew we would want to make this a retirement home down the road. In the meantime, we want to share our beautiful home with families who are looking for a special place to make wonderful memories.

What An Incredible Location, Inside and Out! A++ Getaway

  • 5 of 5

While just my husband and I stayed at this home for a little getaway, I can see how this property would work well for a trip with our young-adult children and their partners. The first floor can be deemed the "kid's zone" and the 2nd floor, the adults'. All the finishes and furnishings in this home are what you would expect in a permanent home. LOVED having a gas fireplace and filtered water/ice in the refrigerator door which I do not have at home! We were lacking for nothing.

It did rain most of the time we were there, but none the less the lake was still beautiful and ever-changing ... fog on the water, rivers of current and rain on the surface, loon parent and baby interacting within feet of the dock, camp fire set up provided by property owners. There is a canoe for use which we took advantage of when it was not raining. It was a great way to see more of the lake. [People with difficulty walking on non-level ground (elderly or small children) may need some assistance getting to/fro the beach as the home is set up above the beach (perhaps a 12' grade change across pavers through bark chip section shown on the back side photos and then a more gradual slope to the water).]

We entertained some friends and cooked dinner together. Again, everything we could have needed was within reach. There were plenty of games, puzzles, WiFi, cell phone and radio reception to keep us entertained through the rain. We had selected this home over an older "traditional camp" and with the rain, we were glad we had. It was a spectacular setting from which to watch the rain and remain comfy and cozy. Nice covered decks upon which to read and eat, sheltered from the elements. Enjoyed an early rise on the non-rainy day out on the dock with a book. It was so relaxing!

I loved interacting with the owners as they are both very nice, warm and gracious hosts. We are hoping to return as a family of four plus next summer.

Square pond is a wonderful lake with plenty of water activities to enjoy. Well known for it's active water skiing community, there is a slalom ski course available. Loons enjoy swimming directly in front of the property and an eagle's nest resides on the island across the way.
