Jake Britt & Diane Vigneau
We are a family of 4. Jake is semi-retired and Diane is coming out of 'retirement' trying to jump-start a new career as a veterinarian. Our son Sean is a musician, currently in San Francisco with a move to New York this spring. Our daughter Marielle is studying acting in Los Angeles. We bought this property in 1999 and totally renovated and added on to it in 2001, naming it The Looney Moose. We use this property frequently, sometimes for the entire summer, sometimes for part of the summer. It is available for rental all year long.
From our, admittedly biassed, point of view, this property has it all. It has a beautiful lakefront, with a small sandy beach, retaining wall and shallow entry. Having been built in the 60's, it is positioned less than 100' from the water, with an unobstructed view. The original boathouse was re-built in 2005. Our love of loons and moose is reflected in the 'Looney Moose' decor which is both comfortable, tasteful. The kitchen, bedrooms, and common areas are well equipped.
Central air. Boathouse. Dock. Screened porch, three decks, including one on top of the boathouse. Privacy. Shallow-water entry. Swim raft. Four full baths, including one with a jacuzzi tub. Two master bedroom suites. Spacious family room plus living room. Basement office. Wi-fi. Kayaks. Stone fireplace. Outdoor fireplace. Our renovation maintained the 'cabin' feel while adding modern conveniences.
