About the Property

Large private treed waterfront property ideal for family watersport vacations

This is a new 2700 sq ft two-story home including a 900 sq ft walkout basement on a large private treed property. The house is quite distant from the road allowing for a setting that is peaceful and quiet. Our location is very photogenic and guests usually capture many memorable photographs in the gardens and the grounds.

On the main level you will find a 3-pc bath and a master bedroom (King). The kitchen, with a dishwasher and all the amenities, dining and living areas are open, spacious and very bright with a large Rumford wood-burning fireplace. From the living area, there is a large deck overlooking the lake with a new barbecue and a comfy screened-in side porch where you can enjoy the evenings, if the weather or bugs are bad. Wifi and cable TV available.

Upstairs, there is a 3-pc bath and two bedrooms (Queen/Double, Queen). The large loft area contains a flat-screen TV/Entertainment Centre (plus Wii Game Console) with leather sectional and lazyboy recliner. In the finished lower level, you'll find 2 more bedrooms (Double/Single bunks, Queen) and another 3-pc bath. A ping-pong table is set up in the open area, with a view of the gardens and lake. From here, you will step outdoors into the gardens on the way to your private beach. Have an evening wiener roast or just relax by the fire pit at the water's edge on pebbles and sand. Firewood is provided in a new wood shed for your convenience. There are two mooring buoys for two boats and a 30 ft long dock to accommodate longer boats. A peddle boat and 2 kayaks with paddles are provided.

A custom timber-frame picnic shelter complete with custom-built picnic table has its own propane barbeque and cook stove and provides another sheltered area amongst the trees for private dining and entertaining. Next to the picnic shelter, there is a full-service RV pad available for booking upon request.

During those hot summer days, you'll enjoy the air-conditioning along with other features like ping pong. A very short walk will take you to the corner store, a hiking trail across the street and the Elementary School playground.

Thousands of people visit our area of the lake in the summer.Water Sking, wake boarding, tubing, paddle boarding, swimming, sailing and fishing all take place right off our beach.
