Our lake house is an architect-designed wood cabin built in 2008. It is full of light and natural materials. It is not a “party house”, but a warm mix of sophistication and informality. Our family and friends have spent many hours together here cooking, playing board games, sitting by the woodstove, reading on the covered deck with a little lake view, napping in the hammocks in the small stand of trees next to the house, stargazing by the fire pit in the front yard and playing volleyball, crochet and bocci ball in the backyard.
The kitchen, with its sunny eating nook and island, is fully equipped and opens to the living room which has a woodstove. The master bedroom and bathroom is downstairs and has its own deck with morning sun and an outdoor shower. Also downstairs is a half bath and laundry room with washer and dryer. The upstairs has 2 bedrooms, one with a full bed and one with a twin, a bathroom, a day bed, and the loft which has a double futon as well as TV/VCR/DVD and a selection of movies. There is no cable or internet.
The small guest cabin included in the rental is similar to a studio apartment with a tiny sleeping loft as well. It is 400 sq. ft. with a queen bed, kitchenette, bathroom and small covered porch and fire pit area.
Our house is less than 1/2 mile from the marina--an easy walk.
We have decided to rent our house because we have become busy with our high schooler’s activities and have not been able to use it as much as we feel it should be. It is a special home to enjoy. We hope you will consider it as your home away from home.
