We have great snow in the winter, hot sun & refreshing water in the summer, and gorgeous foliage in the fall... In addition, the lake region hosts a huge variety of events & activities all year round.

The setting is scenic and private for this four-season lakefront home on pristine Panther Pond! This attractive lake front cottage affords beautiful Western views from it's many vantage points - large deck, screened-in porch, lawn & private dock. In the summer, wake to the sound of the loons and retire enjoying exquisite sunsets by the water.

A beautiful deck with comfortable seating overlooks the water and screened-in porch with Pottery Barn sofa and picnic table allows you to enjoy the views any time of day when you’re lounging or dining. Cottage comes equipped with 3 kayaks and 1 canoe so you can get out on the water and enjoy the lake. There are also a variety of spots to simply sit and enjoy the beauty of the lake including a bench seat on the dock, adirondack chairs at the water's edge and an A-frame swing - no matter where you are, you have full view of the lake and its beauty. 3 bedrooms are all well appointed with cottage furniture and Garnet Hill bedding. 2 full baths, a cozy living room with stone fireplace and full walk-out basement are just some of the special attractions of this home.
