Our cottage has a beautiful private sandy beach with lots of seating and toys. Our cottage is ideal for 6 but has had up to 11 with enjoyment for all. For sleeping we have a QUEEN SLEEP NUMBER BED in main bedroom (sleeps 2). There is a double bed with a twin top bunk in lower level bedroom with another twin under the double bed (that room will sleep 4) plus another all purpose room/bedroom with twin trundle bed (sleeps 2). For added measures with larger groups we also have 2 futons (sleeps up to 4 and a cot (sleeps 1).
Amazing view in the main living area. Galley style kitchen including cooking utensils, stove/oven, microwave, toaster, refrigerator/freezer and coffee maker. Table sits 6 comfortably with two tables on deck and picnic table outside. There is also a table at the deck on the beach with a large awning for shade.
We have a charcoal grill for guest and there is a cooler down at the beach for guests as well.
The deck has a fantastic view with seating.
There are lots of toys for the little one down at the beach.
For the adults there is a canoe, 2 kayaks, paddle board, and blow up float toys. (To be used at your own risk of course.)
This cottage is our happy place.
We waited our entire lives to find this home on Crystal lake. It was built by a student of Francis Lloyd Wright and you can see it in his attention to detail and love he put into this house. When I walk into this cottage my troubles just seem to melt away from my shoulders. I can breathe easier.
I wake up in the mornings and have my coffee on the peaceful balcony and watch the quiet, calm lake and just breathe.
I make a pitcher of iced tea and take it out to the beach along with my favorite book and read until the sun tells me it's time to jump in the lake or float on my float tubes. I usually end up in the kayak or on a paddle board watching the sandy bottom go by and counting fish.
When we start to get hungry we bbq on the grill. In the evening we light a fire in the chimnia and make smores as we watch the sun set. Then we search for constellations and count shooting stars. Our beach is pretty private so I usually end up sneaking back into the lake for a midnight swim to cool down. Then we go sit in the balcony for a late night glass of wine. We go to bed and get lulled to sleep by the lapping of the lake on the shore line.
