Island View House is an architect designed lake-front home on Lake Cecebe that is loaded with amenities. The house faces south east providing a long view down the lake between Gordon and Watson Islands. Pine doors and accents throughout the house add to the lake charm. The large deck of Island View House is a great place to sunbathe, relax, eat outside, or BBQ. Island View House can comfortably accommodate up to seven (7) guests. (An eighth guest can be accommodated with permission of the owners and an extra charge.)
Island View House has six skylights, ample windows and the open living room/dining room/kitchen design give the home a light open feeling as well as privacy.
