It has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and a game room. Other amenities include washer and dryer, picnic table, gas grill, outdoor fire-pit. Although the home is not lakefront, the islands beautiful private peninsula shaped beach is just a very short walk away (300 feet) where you'll find picnic tables, charcoal grills, small playground, basketball hoop, horseshoes and a boat ramp. Perfect for the whole family. We also have 3 kayaks available for your use.

Have a boat? Also available for a small fee is our mooring located just 75 feet from the beach.
