(2+ Bedrooms (1 queen + 1 double). in 1000 sq ft of living space and more than 700 sq ft of covered patio, BBQ, and dining area outside). Your highest expectations will be exceeded - guaranteed. Both inside, and the outside very nearby lake, are huge "wow" factors. You only need to spoil yourself with good food, nice drinks, and a good book in a hammock.

Bird watching and animals:

many, many hummingbirds - feeders and food provided; finches, blue jays, chickadees, woodpeckers, flicker, eastern phoebe, nut hatches, warblers, ducks, loons, etc. Even a stately heron that sometimes visits our dock. There is an abundance of friendly chipmunks and little red squirrels that busily scurry about but always have time to be hand-fed unshelled peanuts! You simply cannot buy these kinds of therapeutic entertainment!!
