Welcome to Cedarstone, a secluded lakefront home with glorious mountain views and quality accommodations. Located in a cove at the head of Long Pond, the lovely cabin is situated at the end of a private, tree-lined drive and is encircled by gardens at the front and back. The pine paneling and wood floors give a warm and inviting feel to the interior that has been newly renovated and boasts modern appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped with all cooking supplies. New furniture adds to the comfortable ambiance of the house, as does the wood-burning stove. A picture window graces the living/dining area, taking full advantage of the lake and mountain vistas. The cabin comes fully appointed with a washer and dryer in the basement, as well as a TV, VCR and DVD player. Books, videos and games offer plentiful indoor entertainment.
Outdoor Amenities: Outdoors, the wonders of the property expand with a screen porch and swing for bug-free relaxation. A spacious deck with tables and chairs is attached to the house and provides ample opportunity for dining al fresco. A dock juts out into Long Pond, the perfect launch for Cedarstone's canoe or rowboat. To swim off the dock is a delightful experience and a small sand beach is suitable for little children to wade. The property comes complete with paddles, oars, cushions and life jackets. A few feet from shore finds a picnic table for lakeside snacks or meals and a tent floor to accommodate additional visitors. Your guests and your pets will enjoy every minute of your vacation at Cedarstone.
