This cottage is about the outdoors! Flat level lot makes it safe for all ages. If you love to swim you will love the water here! Crystal clear, warm, weed free, sand free, rocky bottom with a gorgeous view. You can stay in the water for hours without being cold! Before long you too will be jumping into the water off the platform on the dock. It is a great way to tire out the kids and you get to enjoy right by their side. Going for long walks on the private roads is always nice. Not worrying about traffic leaves a lot of stress behind. Take in the beauty of the surroundings and see the power of nature. The slight hill behind the cottage makes for a great water slide place. The level lot plus shade trees makes it very child friendly. Our cottage is set up for families with young children with lots of toys for them to use.
The cottage is updated, small but very comfortable, clean and well equipped. It has a large deck close to the ground at the front with a awning that cover's half. Great for extra shade or an outdoor place incase of rain. The boat house is equipped with the toys. This cottage is near the end of a well kept year round private road. There are 14' + cedars separating neighboring cottages. This cottage and road is quite child and dog friendly, since no traffic other than for the last two cottages would be driving past. The new dock is 6 feet wide and 30' long with a 10'- x 12' platform at the end. There are mooring whips to dock a small boat. The bottom of the water is granite rock with no weeds at all. Clear, warm and 7'+ deep at the platform at the end of the dock at the beginning of summer. There is no marina on this lake which is well regarded for fishing quality. There is a public boat launch next to public beach across the lake, 10 minute drive by car. Convenience store, general store, grocery store, mini golf, go-carts, restaurants, bank, etc. all within 15 minute drive.
Waterfront Description & Nearby Activities
The waterfront is at the same level as the flat lawn area. Large granite rock leading to the gradual sloping water line. There is a line of rocks that separates the grass from the water entry. We have found this to be like a boundry line for the older children (3+) to know not to go to the water. It would take time to get over the rocks to get to the water. You need to access the water through the path on the lawn and then you have access to the entire 100 feet of water. The water depth at the shore is only inches deep. It has a gradual incline to deeper water. The granite rock bottom makes for the water to be different depths at different places. Some areas off the dock it is too shallow to jump in but anywhere at the end of the dock we have found it to be deep enough to jump in, it is about 7' at the beginning of the season. There is a ladder off the platform for easy access to the dock.
The water is crystal clear on most days and very warm. There are spots in the water that is exceptionally warm. If you swim to the middle of the lake there are rocks that you can stand on. There are many small Islands to explore on this lake by canoe or paddle boat, which is provided. Exceptional view from property and very nice dog friendly neighbors. Water shoes should be worn. There are mooring whips attached to the dock to accommodate a small boat. There is even great fishing right from the dock!
There is a boat launch area on the west side of head lake at the southern end. That is where the public beach is as well. There is no marina on the lake. It is a very quiet lake especially where our cottage is located.
