About the Property
Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 10)
Our lakefront haven is a spacious 3-level building with a separate bunkie/ games room. With 3 bedrooms and a loft in the main building, and double bunk-beds in the bunkie, the cottage has ample room for any large family. Our vacant lot next door enhances the sense of woodland seclusion and adds to the plentiful lounging and playing outdoor space. Our screened-in porch provides outdoor seating while being sheltered from inclement weather. This porch connects to our huge, surround deck housing a glass-top table and umbrella for outdoor dining while viewing the lake.

We pride ourselves on the fact that our cottage is well stocked from night lights, loads of kids toys, and kitchen towels to ample lawn furniture, canoe, paddle boat, 2 outdoor fireplaces etc., making this vacation getaway worry free with maximum relaxation.
The main living area centres around a large circular fireplace, open from all sides, giving it a warm cozy feel on cool evenings. For rainy days, it comes equipped with over 100 movies, board games, books, and puzzles for all ages. The dining area seats 10 guests comfortably at a beautiful hand crafted pine table, and is equipped with a booster chair & high chair for the youngsters.
The top floor is a loft equipped with toys for all ages and a queen futon bed. This location allows you to hear the kids playing while you are preparing meals. The loft also sports skylights making this an excellent place for star gazing.
Main level has a queen bed in the master bedroom and the lower level has 2 bedrooms (1 queen & twin bunk beds). On the lower level is a full size washer and dryer and an exit to the outside. Just bring towels and linens - everything else is provided!
The bunkie, located across the driveway, is equipped with double bunk beds and doubles as games room. For your entertainment pleasure there is an eight-ball pool table, regulation dart board, and card table and chairs. The bunkie is excellent for the older kids or another couple to have their private accommodation.
Parents will have no trouble watching their kids from the substantial dock with sitting area. For your enjoyment of refreshments on the dock on those hot summer days, there is a fridge located in the water's edge shed.
Down at the lake, there is a swing set, a sand pile, and a large fire pit for roasting marshmallows and campfire sing along. Canoe, paddle boat and aluminum boat are all included. For your outside eating pleasure, there is a picnic area located near the main entrance to the cottage. This area is equipped with a picnic table and a lovely outside stone fireplace.
