They are building some wonderful cottages and homes in cottage country these days - and we were thrilled to be offered the chance to offer this property to our guests. This recently constructed cottage takes full advantage of its location at the end of a beautiful bay on Ril Lake. With views that just don't quit from almost every room in the cottage, you'll enjoy classic cottage country scenery for your entire stay.
The main floor is dominated by the picture windows in the living room that look straight down the bay. The living room also has flat screen satellite TV and a fireplace. The level is open concept, with the kitchen and dining table (hand crafted by the owner) adjoining the living room. Two bedrooms and a 4-piece bath round out this level. A trip to the lower level will find a family room will reveal the family room, complete with yet another view of the bay, another fireplace and TV, and a pool table as well. Another 2 bedrooms and a 4-piece bath complete the tour. This balance of the two levels makes Bayview on Ril an excellent choice for an extended or larger family who need to separate for some different pursuits now and then.
Outside, you will enjoy everything Ril Lake has to offer. There is a dock and a swimming platform. The water has a shallow sandy/soft bottom entry, but deepens fairly quickly and is 5-6 feet off the end of the dock. A rowboat and a paddleboat are great for exploring the lake or casting a line in the water on a lazy afternoon.
The cottage road runs between the cottage and the lake. While it is not a busy road, you will see the occasional car pass through.
If you decide you want to take your own car out for a bit, you'll find a number of quaint cottage towns an easy distance away. Baysville offers a bakery to tempt you, and Dorset is a great little spot for supplies and ice cream. Take a side trip to the Dorset lookout tower for yet another great view. If you need a little more of an urban setting, Huntsville offers much in terms of arts, entertainment and shopping.
Bayview on Ril is bound to be a popular spot - it offers wonderful value in an upscale cottage. We hope it's right for you!
