Lexington Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
Stepping back into a different quieter time reminiscent of F. Scott Fitzgerald's era (1922), this cottage, formerly a year-round home, has 7 rooms including a 30 foot screened enclosed porch with a great view of the lake and tennis court. It has its own sun deck right down on the water overlooking 350 feet of private beach and the use of 2 kayacs for anyone 18 or older. All rooms have been recently remodeled. There are 3 bedrooms: King, Double, and twin beds that are airconditioned. The mattresses are new as is all the beautiful bedding from Pottery Barn. There is a large functioning fireplace in the front room with an ample supply of split logs taken from our woods across the street. There is also a large library in the living room and very spacious sitting. There is a beautiful antique dining room set in the dining room with seating for six. The kitchen is fullly equipped with a laundry room beside it. The washer and dryer are new and heavy duty. A Picnic table, gas grill, and lounging chairs are right outside the back door. The property is very spacious which allows privacy and often much needed solitude both at the cottage and at the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My wife and I were swept away with both the cottage and the grounds. Only another gardener could appreciate all the hard work that goes into the many perennial gardens. There are rose bushes everywhere which were in their second bloom while we were there. We had bonfires on the beach in the cool evenings and even used the fireplace in the living room one night when it rained. My wife learned to kayac; something I've wanted her to do for years. It was great!!
