Katharine (Kalee) Roberts purchased this cottage in 2004
Long story of course, but the short of it is we love the view, we love surroundings, we love the cottage and sharing it with others who love it too.
For us this is a close get away. Taking just a short time to set up for use and then extremely peaceful and beautiful, whether just sitting by the lake, enjoying a canoe or sail or sitting indoors and hearing raindrops on the roof. We never want to leave.
