PARKING: There are two driveways and two garages. Off winter you can easily park up to 8 cars on the property. In snowy conditions, the upper driveway, being steep, gets icy and very slippery. When icy, we recommend only one car be parked on the upper driveway and parked at the bottom. The lower driveway is flat and also has a 2 car garage, thus accommodating 4 cars in summer or winter. There is plenty of permitted street parking, even in the winter; however, if it snows the city snowplows need access to the streets. If your car is parked on the street when the city has to plow they will likely maneuver around your car, but may tow or cite you as permitted by law. Regardless, during winter, the risks during scheduled snow plowing are yours. Please note, I contract annually with a local snowplowing service to remove snow from the driveways.
The house is located within 2 miles of the two ski resorts. In the summer take in a stroll to the lake, or ride bikes (5) provided at the house, for boating, jet skiing, water skiing and fishing.
