Featuring an "EXOTIC AFRICAN" themed decor, spacious living & dining room with huge covered patio and panoramic view of lake, upscale bathroom with jacuzzi and large, modern kitchen.
This the perfect upscale cottage-life getaway for busy adults seeking a very quiet, relaxing and rejuvenating retreat. It's absolutely gorgeous, very private, and fully equipped in very good quality - yet very, very “cottagey”. (2+ Bedrooms in 1000sq'(111sqm) of living space and more than 700 sq ft (78 sqm)of covered patio, BBQ, and dining area outside). Your highest expectations will be exceeded – guaranteed.
You only need to spoil yourself with good food, nice drinks, and a good book in a hammock.
Excellent swimming:Excellent dock with heavy duty 5-step dock ladder.
Watercraft: Canoe, paddle boat, 3 recreational kayaks, and life jackets provided.
Water games:noodles, tubes, fins, masks, snorkels, also provided in a few sizes.
On-shore games: Badminton with good quality rackets, crocket, bocce, horse shoes, ball gloves, etc.
Bird watching and animals:
many, many hummingbirds - feeders and food provided; finches, blue jays, chick-a-dees, woodpeckers, flicker, eastern phoebe, nut hatches, warblers, ducks, loons, etc. Even a stately heron that sometimes visits our dock. There is an abundance of friendly chipmunks and little red squirrels that busily scurry about but always have time to be hand-fed unshelled peanuts! Our larger pets are the raccoon families that come around just as the smaller creatures go to bed. For the more adventurous, our country raccoons will, ever-so-gently, take pieces of peanut butter sandwiches, or a peanut, from your fingers! We have also had deer on the property. Will you be lucky enough to see one swimming across the lake? In the spring, winter & fall, especially winter, their numbers increase dramatically and deer no longer run away when they see us! You simply cannot buy these kinds of therapeutic entertainment!!
There is an ever increasing interest in the planets, moons, clusters, nebulas & constellations. The annual recurring "Perseus" meteor showers are around mid August? no equipment needed - you only need to sit outside or lay on the dock to witness this grand spectacle of shooting stars!
Beautiful Winter Paradise:
LakeSide is a very different but equally beautiful paradise in winter. After the lake is completely and solidly frozen (usually by Christmas), it remains safe to be upon all winter (about 4 months). It is great for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
