Property description

Once the main house of a sprawling summer estate, the beach house comes with the bonuses of a tennis court, huge pool and gymnasium, all right on the water. There are actually two houses but we use it as a single residence with one being more the day time house with an enormous kitchen that was originally staffed and a big living/dining room and observation tower. This house has just 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. It is connected to the gym that has a volleyball/badminton net as well as basketball hoops. It is a great thing for rainy days and night time play. There is also a good sized sauna in this house.
Right next to this is what we call the 'upstairs house', a classic mid-century home mostly on the second level over a three car garage. This house features a large living/dining room, a galley kitchen, an enormous second floor deck, 4 or 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. This house has walls of windows looking toward the lake, out over the tennis court and into the woods behind the house. It's a very unique place.
The oversized pool is adjacent to the tennis court and this all sits on a wide stretch of private beach from which sunsets may be best appreciated. It's a remarkable place to get away. For those who don't like to go cold turkey at the beach, we have WiFi and cable.
While I think of this as the ultimate beach experience, it is not a luxurious place. It was built at a time when the emphasis was on where you were, not what you had there. The living spaces are large but the bedrooms and baths are small and pretty original.
A new clay bocce court was installed this spring.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees and Rental Conditions:

  • Property Damage Protection $99
  • Taxes Not included


During the prime season, the place is only available for my version of a week, which consists of 6 nights. The rental week starts on Thursday at noon and ends on Wednesday at 10:00am. As an American with a dislike for bridge delays, I arrange it this way to reduce my, and my renter's exposure to long times spent at the border. Also, as an American, the rent is stated in US dollars.

Spring and fall rentals can be by the same term or as little as 3 nights. We will also rent off season but that is only the blue house with three functioning bedrooms and two baths. The rent at that time is $400/night with a minimum of three nights. Longer term rentals will result in lower rates.

Owner's cancellation policy:

50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.

100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
