Cozy Two Bedroom Gulf Island Cottage on Small, Engine-Free Swimming Lake. At 660 square feet, this well-kept lakefront vacation rental is perfect for a couple or a family with two younger children. You’ll spend most of your time here on the deck, when you’re not in the lake or on it — it’s that kind of place.
Swim out to the float. Tie on your life vests and circumnavigate the lake in the canoe. If there’s a fisherperson in the family, bring your tackle — you can fish for your supper right off the dock.
When they’re not in the water or playing games on the large lot, the kids will love watching for salamanders and otters, feeding the ducks and keeping tabs on the eagles. Deer wander the property at will, and there always seem to be lots of fawns to admire.
There’s very little outdoor lighting around the lake. Most nights you can see the moon and stars as they’re never seen in the city. Lie on the deck and watch for shooting stars, planets and satellites. When its orbit is right, you can see the space station. Bring your binoculars for a special treat. Something else you’ll love is the quiet — it’s as close to silent at night as you’re ever likely to find — unless the tree frogs are serenading one another.
