Hot water outdoor shower-house. Living room (hardwood floor) & 2nd floor bedroom (pine floor) are each 16' x 20'. Living room is private; the couch has been replaced with a futon that opens up to make a double bed, so the living room is frequently used as a 2nd bedroom.

Cottage sits up on a small hill (a gradual slope grants easy access from the dock) overlooking the main, open part of the lake... great view!!! Beach area is flat & spacious, so children have lots of room to run & play. There's a shallow area children can wade & play in, with a deeper area to the right (divided by a large, flat rock) where adults & older children may prefer to jump in. There's a path to the other end of the island where it's deep enough to dive in. The island consists of 1 acre of 'tendered' land plus 2 additional acres (behind the cottage & beach area) of 'au-naturel' grass, rocks, & trees, except for one tendered path from the cottage to the end of the island & a sitting area with 2 lawn chairs nestled in a delightful, cozy little clearing under a few trees at the far end of the island. Kayaks, 9 hp 14' aluminum motorboat, PFDs for rent.
