Chipmunks Chatter on Shadow Lake boasts great cottage living space both inside and out. The main level is open concept connecting kitchen, dining space and TV / livingroom space which allows you to cook and visit with family and friends at the same time. The island doubles as a great space for eating or playing cards. The cathedral ceiling and floor to ceiling stone fireplace are the focal point on this level. Relax while watching the big screen TV, ExpressVu, Bose Lifestyle stereo system, xBox, and Blu-ray. Each bedroom also has its own TV and ExpressVu or Amazon Fire TV Stick.

This cottage offers spectacular sunsets, clean deep water with great swimming free of weeds either from the end of the dock or just a few steps into shallower water with a sandy bottom. If you prefer being on the water, go for a paddle in the kayak or paddleboat. If you are a sun lover the lakeside boasts a 40 foot dock, lakeside lounging and a great upper level deck for eating and lounging. If you prefer less sun, the back side has a very large flat grassy area for games, a 26’ covered deck with two living spaces: living room style space and a Live Edge bar table space. Enjoy lake views from the outdoor hot tub or the 190 degree view from the games room. For evening relaxation, settle in at one of two fire pits while gazing at the stars, and roasting marshmallows over the campfire. This beautiful property is fully equipped for your summer cottage adventure!
