The kitchen and dining room are nicely appointed and spacious; next to the kitchen there is a laundry room with a washer and dryer, and behind the laundry room there is a separate mudroom for skis, wet snow clothes and swimsuits. The downstairs also has a bedroom with twin bunk beds and a sofa, and a remodeled bathroom with a fully tiled walk-in shower.
Half-log stairs take you upstairs to four more bedrooms: the first with a queen bed and a daybed with a trundle, the second with a queen bed, the third with a 4 poster queen bed and French doors to the front balcony, and the fourth with four twin beds.
