About the property

Get away to a lovely stone cottage that sits 6 feet from the shores of beautiful Lake Sylvia. The cottage has 2 bedrooms - -one overlooking the lake (wake up to beautiful sunrises). The other room has 2 sets of built-in bunk beds with their own reading lights (sleeps 4). Well equipped kitchen. Open floor plan with very comfortable furnishings. Enjoy dining or playing games in a cozy eating nook. The cottage also has a wonderful stone gas fireplace. Summertime enjoy the eating area above the boathouse or sitting on the deck porch swing with your morning coffee. Dock and boatlift and a canoe for your use. Many interesting local places to explore- quaint nearby towns with antique and vintage shops. Wonderful local restaurants. Wine tasting in Kimball and a new brewery in Annandale only minutes away.

Fall time is beautiful on Lake Sylvia. Very peaceful with lovely reflections in the water from the colorful trees. Cool nights perfect for enjoying campfires under the stars or stay inside -the stone fireplace will keep you warm and cozy.

Many fun winter activities - Powder Ridge ski and tubing - great fun for the family. Also nearby parks with cross country ski trails. Snowshoeing and ice fishing right out the door. Christmas time is beautiful with the cottage nestled in the snow decorated with lights and greenery. Feels like your far away from the stresses of life. The cozy stone cottage is a great get away for spending time with the family, girls weekend, romantic get away or time alone less then an hour from the Metro area.

About Jane and Ted Klein

My husband and I had found an old cottage that sat next to the waters edge with an amazing setting of big mature trees and old stone walls and we couldn't resist the water clarity on beautiful Lake Sylvia- it's like a swimming pool all summer long. The cottage was in pretty rough shape so we built a new cottage with the vision of an English cottage that appears to have been there for years. It truly feels like an escape when we are there and has given us many wonderful memories. We hope you choose to stay and create memories of your own.

Jane and Ted Klein purchased this cottage in 2006

When Can We Visit Again?

  • 5 of 5

Words can't describe how lovely this stone cottage is, with it's wonderful lake views (not to mention the sunrises and sunsets, and the Trumpeter Swans waving us goodbye - truly a slice of heaven). The stone cottage could be located in the countryside of England -- the love and attention to detail has created a place that is peaceful and cozy and elegant at the same time. Both my husband and I loved it and the only question is: "When can we stay here again?"

Restful Lakeside Vacation

First, let me say that the cottage is as wonderful as the photos depict. Very charming. We spent most our time lounging on the sunny porch with its beautiful lake view and on the side deck. We will definitely visit again! Thanks Jane and Ted

Gorgeous views and cabin, right on the water...

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two teenage sons have had the fortune to be able to stay at this charming cottage on three separate extended weekends to ice fish over the past few years. The cottage itself absolutely gorgeous and beautifully constructed and decorated. Cozy is definitely a great word to describe it with its European style. We have always found that it had everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing time. It is just an incredible experience to wake up and the first thing you see is the view of the sun rising over Lake Sylvia from the master bedroom windows. The back porch is literally right on the water and there is also separate deck by the dock that is right on the water as well with a fire pit area behind it. The owner Jane is always an excellent host, quick to communicate and has a very warm personality.

Cozy and Quaint Cottage

Loved our stay at the cottage! The owner was very responsive to all of our questions and emails prior to our stay. She made us feel right at home and was so friendly. The cottage was clean, quite spacious and well equipped. Beautiful views of the lake, lovely fireplace and a gorgeous home. Very peaceful and serene - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and didn't want to leave! Highly recommend this cottage!
