Stay at Twin Lakes Cottage--a private, immaculate, all season cottage, built in 2008, and located in a quiet rural neighborhood across from Long Lake. Clean, comfortable, and colorfully decorated with antique and modern furnishings, it offers a large, airy, loft bedroom with a new queen-sized bed, sitting area, and balcony facing the lake.
You will enjoy the use of a fully equipped kitchen (including glasses, dishes, utensils, coffee maker, cookware, and microwave) and combined dining and living room. The ground floor sitting room/study, with queen size sofa bed, opens onto a private patio--enjoy your morning coffee or stargaze at night. Free WiFi, good lighting and a desk area away from the central part of the cottage make it a great room to work in.
Your stay entitles you to access to two private beaches on a clear spring-fed lake that are an easy walk across the street. Enjoy a swim in its cool waters on a warm day. No motorboats allowed--but bring your kayaks! As the weather cools in the fall, you can sit by the shore and watch the brilliant colors of the leaves reflect off the water, or kayak through the fallen leaves floating on the lake.
