These are just some of the direct quotes from the guest book. Like them, you will soon learn that SummerSong is an inviting and relaxing vacation cabin and ideal for families, those who just love to fish, a couple looking for a relaxing get-away, or a group of friends who want to relax. Warm, quiet, and comfortably decorated, it is a great location for families who crave a lakeside vacation experience. Kids just love it here with access to the lake just outside the downstairs door with no steep hillsides to navigate. Parents can feel secure knowing there is a gradual decline into the water, with no drop offs. It is also an ideal location for people who love fishing. Fishing boats can be moored in front of the cabin or you can just stand in front of the house and cast your lines into the lake. Couples find SummerSong to be the perfect relaxation cabin. With its gentle slope to the water's edge, wonderful outside decks, and spectacular views, even those with limited mobility find SummerSong an ideal location. Old friends who need 'catch-up' time with one another find SummerSong to be ideal for porch-sitting and nostalgic remembrances.

Perfect for....: Kids! They will love it here. From morning til evening, from one of two decks, you can watch them swim. You won't be able to get them inside. With a gradual slope into the water, you need not worry about sudden drop-offs in the water.
The Two of You! Take a moonlight swim, just feet from your bedroom door. Then sit by the fire and allow your mind to go blank.
Friends! Cook, eat, laugh, and visit on the deck until the wee hours of the morning while waves lap the shoreline.
Fishing! With easy access to your boat, you can fish any time of day with ease! Just walk a few steps and you are on your way. Come back to the cabin in the heat of the day for a rest and head out again for wonderful night fishing. Hickory Creek Marina, just across the cove, is stocked to help you with all your tackle and bait needs.
Resting! Wave at passing boats. Catch some sun on the deck. Relax in your hammock or yard swing. Enjoy a good book between naps. Walk the shoreline.
Boating: If you love to pull the kids on the tube, SummerSong is the place. The cove in front of the cabin is a perfect place for tubing. Away from the main channel of the lake, yet large enough for some long runs and lots of turns to churn up the waves, the cove is ideal for tubing. Close enough to the cabin, friends and family can watch the fun from their seats on the shore. Or you can take a day-trip up to the Dam and back while sight-seeing on Beaver Lake.
The cabin has two levels. The top level is accessed from the carport and road. The bottom level opens to the lake. With large-screen TV, the upstairs is mainly an open area for kitchen, dining, and living functions. The kitchen is well-stocked and a list of food-stuffs, dishes, pots/pans, etc. can be provided upon request (too long to include here. Two floor-to-ceiling picture windows give everyone a great view of the lake and the hills beyond.
With its own television, a separate bedroom (queen) and bath are also upstairs…often used by those who have difficulty with stairs. The upstairs deck area has a covered area with plenty of rocking chairs, porch swing, and table/chairs for eating or games. The connected open deck is for grilling and dining around the firepit. A gas grill, small charcoal grill, and a smoker are available.
The lower level has a king bed and two twins. This area can be separated into three rooms with draperies and room dividers if needed. A sitting area with table and chairs, loveseat and arm chairs are also downstairs. This level also has floor-to-ceiling windows to enjoy the views. It is a great area for kids who just want to get away from the adults. Just outside the door is a small covered porch with a porch swing to enjoy if the weather is rainy. A full deck runs completely across the front of the house with lounge chairs, table/chairs, and bar table and chairs. This deck is great for taking in the sun during the day as well as enjoying the night sky of late evening. Great for taking your favorite beverage and just sitting in the sun and watching all the lake activity.
On either side of the cabin is a yard swing and picnic table. These are great, too, if the kids want to eat on one side of the house and the adults on the other.
Despite sitting just off the road, the property is very private. A chain-link fence with a tall hedge runs the entire length of the property separating it from the road. There is only one other house on the lakeshore, and it is four lots away to the north. A privacy fence separates that property from the cabin property. The south side is bounded by a chain-link fence also.
The lakeside is completely open to the water. The grass is cut to the Corps of Engineers property line. To the south is a lovely cove that is good for fishing. Often guests just fish from the shoreline. Boats can be moored anywhere, but the water is a bit deeper on the south side of the property. Across the lake is Hickory Creek Park which has both day use and overnight camping areas. Boats are launched from this park or the attached Hickory Creek Marina. In addition to normal marina services, boats and pontoons may be rented. There is also a restaurant on the marina property. This area is five minutes away by boat and can be seen from the front deck.
A Favorite Day: Stand at the window for a minute with that first cup of coffee and take in the quiet view before the day begins. Then head outside to a rocking chair on the top deck and enjoy the early morning. Take your next cup of coffee with you as you stroll the shoreline of the property. Maybe take a chair down to the shoreline and just sit there with your feet in the water. Afterward, come back and have some breakfast on the deck and then head out for some fun on the water. Take a break and lay down on one of the lounge chairs with a favorite beverage and take a short nap (or read while taking in some sun.) Enjoy some more fun water activity and then take another nap in the shade (maybe in one of the yard swings??) Start grilling for supper and after dinner, enjoy some twilight swimming. Finally, sit on the front deck with a favorite beverage and enjoy the coming night.
