LONNY KING VIDEO ON BADOUR
This is an island property. You need a boat to get there. We rent fishing, pontoon and speed boats.
THE MAIN COTTAGE on Badour Island, was designed and built by Jonathan Rousham and was written up in Fine Homebuilding.
It is a beautiful post and beam cottage, with windows everywhere. The floors are pine, there is an open plan kitchen, dining room, and living room. A wood burning stove sits in the middle of the large room. The ceilings are two floors high, with a second set of windows on all four sides 16 feet high. It looks like a pagoda.
In back of the cottage is a shed with a washer and dryer, a half size basketball court with mural, and an outdoor [hot] shower.
The dock [79 steps down] has a deck with two Adirondack chairs, a chaise lounge, and a shed for storage of tubes, fishing poles, water skis and paddles.
The dining table seats 8 comfortably, but can be extended to fit 10, 12 or even 16 by adding on any of the three outdoor tables that are the same height and width.
Most people bring their iPods, We have a chess set, board games and puzzles.
There are three small bedrooms. One flight up is a bedroom with a queen size bed, surrounded on three sides by windows. The 4th side overlooks the living room. It is like a crows nest, which was one name we thought of for the building.
On the main floor, are two bedrooms, each with a wall of windows. One has a queen size bed. The other has bunk beds with a double bed on the bottom.

Badour Island Compound Guest House
The guest cottage sits a few yards away from the main cottage. Downstairs is a large living room.
The guest cottage has two covered porches, one downstairs and one off the bedroom on the second floor each with a gorgeous view of the lake. (Actually, that was the spot I had picked for the main cottage, but the builder changed the location on me and had all the posts in by the time I had arrived â?? so the guest cottage got the best view).
Upstairs is a beautiful bedroom with a queen size bed, air conditioner, telescope, skylight that opens and another covered porch with an even more gorgeous view of the lake.+ More
