The Sunbreaker Cove Log Retreat is an all season vacation home located on the north end of Sylvan lake in the summer village of Sunbreaker Cove. The retreat is located on the end of a close adjacent to a beautiful natural forest reserve with a 150 meter walking path to the lake. For the summer season a wood platform provides a place for relaxing by the water and steps into the lake for swimming. The naturalized landscaping provides an appealing backdrop. The walkout level deck overlooks a rock garden with perennials, fountain and statuary which we brought home from Bali. The view beyond is the aspen forest which provides beauty through all the seasons. The lower deck is a cool and tranquil space, surrounded by nature.

The same view is enjoyed from the large covered main deck , with some lake views . The gas BBQ is also located on this deck, along with comfy furnishings and a gas heater and blankets for cooler temperatures. There are bird feeders which attract many different species of birds that vary throughout the changing seasons. It’s a treat to listen to the songs of the birds at dawn and dusk. You might even see deer, squirrels , the occasional fox or flying squirrel.

The master bedroom has its own private deck which has lake views. You will be delighted by the beauty of all four seasons and also the views of the night skies as there are no street lights nearby.
