ABOUT OUR PROPERTY:
Our house sits on 6 wooded acres, and from it’s hillside perch, enjoys broad views overlooking Bristol Lake. The property is at the end of a quiet, dead-end drive. It has frontage on Stamm Lake (a 4½ acre spring-fed pond), and from Stamm, the property line follows a stream which flows year-round down to Bristol Lake, on which the property has 125 feet of frontage. Bristol is a 165-acre all-sports lake and is excellent for fishing, swimming and all manner of watersports. We have a sandy beach which drops-off gradually until it reaches a depth of around 3 feet (appx. 20’ from shore). From there the depth falls-off more quickly, eventually reaching a depth of 45 feet at closer to 100 yards from shore. As such, the beach and lakeshore are relatively-friendly to younger children (although we recommend life jackets for non-swimmers). We have a raft which is anchored in deeper water (very safe for diving), we also have a dock to park a boat or to get young anglers closer to the many bass & bluegill which hover at the drop-off. Between the house & the shore we have a large grassy yard with enough trees to give some comfortable shade in the sunny summer afternoons. We have a hammock in the trees and a fire pit on the beach. The yard is large enough for whiffle-ball, volleyball, croquet or practically any variety of other yard games. The 6 acres of woods have a series of short trails which are fun for a short afternoon stroll.
ABOUT THE HOUSE:
New construction, built with premium materials and systems. At appx. 4,300sf, it has 8 bedrooms, 3½ baths and enough beds to sleep 20 (see plans in photo section). Our kitchen has large areas granite countertop, allowing many participants in food preparation.

We have a large dining table as well as folding picnic tables and an umbrella table on the deck (which overlook the lake). There are areas to sit & talk on every level. The lower level has a rec room equipped with both a ping-pong and a pool table. This room opens thru 2 sliding doors onto a patio (which also overlooks the lake). A TV room on the upper level is great for kids watching late-night movies.
ABOUT THE BRISTOL LAKE COMMUNITY:
Bristol Lake offers a wonderful mix of active recreation and quiet relaxation. Many of the property-owners on the lake live here year-round. It is our desire to offer this vacation rental to families which will appreciate the serenity of this community and be respectful of our neighbors. Keeping noise levels low (especially after dark), maintaining slow speeds on the entry drive, and keeping the grounds in good order are all elements of making a visit satisfying to all involved. If you choose to book with us, we ask that you make a commitment to be a good neighbor.
