Property description

Our two-story, four-bedroom (two-and-a-half bath) log cabin has beautiful views of Round Pond, a large front deck for lounging and dining, a side deck for grilling, and a dock for swimming and launching the canoe.

It's quiet and peaceful, with no TV connection (although we do have Wi-Fi) and lots of space to explore.

Upstairs: The master bedroom has a king-size bed, and the lofted bedroom (above the living room) has two twin beds. There is also one full and one half bath.

Downstairs: Living room, kitchen, and dining area are all in one open space, with the dining area set off to one side with optimal views of the sunset. There are two bedrooms downstairs: one with a queen bed, and one with two twin beds. There is also a full bath. The cabin is furnished as a home; please treat it as such. If you appreciate hand-crafted furniture, welcome! (If you seek a rough-and-tumble experience, you'll be happy elsewhere.)

We have a TV with DVD-playing capabilities but haven't quite found a great place to put it, so for the moment it's sitting kind of awkwardly on a table in the living room -- feel free to rearrange, if you'd like.

Canoe and swim toys are in the basement!
