3BR/2BA cottage with lots of privacy and a big view from two deck levels, a lakeside bedroom balcony, a big screened porch and a dock tucked into a cove. The house is 1375 square feet, and the screened porch and decks total another 1250 square feet of space. The covered lower deck allows for rain or shine outdoor cooking, with a sink and a grill with charcoal provided. Also available are an LP gas boiler pot with basket and iron skillet for searing/blackening and/or a Traeger pellet grill, with LP gas & pellets provided. The home has a flat circle drive entrance with parking just a few feet away from the front door. A lighted 32-step staircase and a lighted path lead to the lakeside deck and covered dock with year-round water, swim/sun deck, water mat for kids, boat slip, jet ski port, dog-friendly ladder and mini fridge. The home has a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, a wood-burning fireplace inside and a chiminea outside, with firewood and starter logs provided. Guided striper fishing is great (see pictures), with dock pickup and drop-off. Trout fishing below the dam is also popular.
The home sits on a wooded lot with 550 feet of shoreline, starting in the cove and ending at a point of land that shelters the dock from wind, waves and boat traffic. This provides for safe swimming and paddling, minimum wave action on the dock, and just 50 yards to big water. This house is located minutes from the town of Crane Hill and just 1.5 miles from Rock Creek Marina (by water and by road). There is a canoe, a paddleboat, a standup paddleboard and 2 kayaks for renter’s use, with life jackets and paddles provided. Parking space is available for a renter’s boat trailer. There is a hiking trail to a sheltered ledge with a spring in Cap'n Jack's hollow, fun exploring for kids of all ages. All staircases and decks are kid-friendly, with railings and wire panels or pickets. Smoking is allowed outside on the dock, decks and porch only. Pets are allowed. We just ask that they use the XL kennel crate provided when inside the house.
There are TVs in the living room (55") and on the porch (40") with DVD players and a 20" TV in bedroom 2, all with Dish Network America's Top 120+, DVR and SEC Network. You can DVR the game, play in the lake, and watch the game later.
Wireless Internet is available and the fee is included.

Bring your own towels and a backpack for taking snacks and drinks to the dock.
