This “LA Cabin' sleeps 6+and is located on all-sports 570-acre Lake Ann at mouth of the Platte River with plenty of shade to enjoy the breeze and a fabulous porch to enjoy beautiful summer evenings. This is a unique 'up-north' getaway with a 168’ of shoreline and a private boat dock. Bring your own 'toys' or have a pontoon boat, fishing boats, trampolines and jet skis delivered to the lake for you by private companies in the area. The owner has provided (4) kayaks, a canoe, and a 16’ fishing boat for your use as well.
The cottage sleeps eight to ten comfortably, with two bedrooms and three king size beds on the 2nd floor, and a double bed with a futon available on the main level. On the main level, there is also a full living room with a large leather couch and two chairs. The kitchen is also overlooking the lake, a bedroom with a full bathroom and laundry room with a half bath is at the opposite end. Dine in or on the large deck where you can have a picnic with the kids or spend some quiet time reading. This deck always has a lake breeze to make this a favorite gathering place. This home is equipped with new appliances and has been decorated with North Cottage-style furnishings.
The lower lake level has a very large space equipped with a ping pong table. This is the perfect room for enjoying TV, playing board games, or preparing for tomorrow's fishing trip.
Head down to the water, take your boat out and enjoy a fun-filled day fishing in this beautiful lake, or just capture the sounds of the summer as you take a quiet canoe or kayak ride at sunset around the lake. The large grassy lawn (80' x120') is great for playing badminton, tag, Frisbee toss or just sunning. At the end of the day sit around the fire pit and plan your next day of fun.

We built this home as our retirement home (about ten more years) and then with the kids in college decided to rent it to help pay our bills.
It is so peaceful, yet close to many ammenities. There is also wildlife, a beautiful lake, and a lovely home. I can't wait to retire up there someday.
