Take a hike in the woods. Watch the hummingbirds dart in and out of the flower garden. Take in the sun rise over the lake from the swing on the deck or the sun set as you roast marshmallows and tell stories around the fire. This is not just a Summer destination. Take a hike and view all the beautiful fall colors. Sit in the hot tub(seasonal-Winter Only) on the covered patio as snow falls around you and you overlook the picturesque lake.

Very relaxing, but highly entertaining

Even better than expected

Beautiful property and the new fire pit addition was a huge bonus. Perfect little beach for our family of six with lots to do in the water. Cottage was clean and the kitchen had everything we could hope for-updated and functional. Owner was easy to contact, responded promptly and friendly. A great place to stay!
