About the Property

Lakefront Cottages on Semi-Private Lake, Beach, Boats Fun!

Five musically themed cottages, all with at least two bedrooms, a setting of rolling hills and a rustling creek, all lake frontage on a semi-private lake for swimming, canoeing, paddle boating and fishing. Enjoying the outdoors in year round cottages with lots of wildlife yet near many local attractions.

Lots of water sports - Fishing, canoeing, paddle boating, swimming. The area has many lakes and rivers to discover. Not one moment of boredom at Lakeside Melodies.

Enjoy folk music - At least monthly we host a pot luck dinner with a regional folk musician coming in to perform for us. Bill and his friends are often together in the Summertime to share music by the evening fire.

Kids have a blast! - They can play in the water, on our sandy beach, run around on our spacious grassy fields and have fun at the playground.

A nature lover? - Then you will like Little Pleasant Lake and all the lakes surrounding us. The area is great for biking and hiking.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are Bill and Carla, the couple behind Lakeside Melodies. The first time we saw this place, we fell in love with it. The rolling green hills, beautiful Little Pleasant Lake, the peaceful creek and the three happy ducks living in it. We bought the place and renovated it into a resort, where we would like to stay ourselves. Our goal is to make our guests feel at home. Call us and we can tell you all about Lakeside Melodies and its rich history. Why 'Melodies'? Bill is a music fanatic. He's been active in music since he was twelve years old. He played drums since high school. Eleven years ago he discovered a peculiar instrument: the hammered dulcimer. He has played nothing else since and already recorded three cd's and performs frequently. In summer he often plays outdoors at Lakeside Melodies, so lots of free concerts! Bill is an information technology consultant and Carla is a travel journalist, writer of books and magazines. She's Dutch by the way. So for anyone who wants to practice Dutch or is dying to know more about wooden shoes, tulips and windmills, she's the one. Both are sportive people, love canoeing and biking, so ask them for the best routes in the River Country.
