The property has a gradual slope to the waterfront and is both child and elderly friendly. There are 3-4 parking spots. There is a good sized dock and deck on the waterfront. There is also a large deck with a connected screened in gazebo off the kitchen and living area of the cottage. It’s a shallow sandy entry from the shoreline and about 7 feet deep off the dock. Diving is not recommended. There is 171 feet of shoreline with a sandy beach area on the waterfront for children to play in. There is also a swing on the shoreline and a tire swing and wooden fort with a slide a little further in on the property for kids to enjoy. It is great swimming on a shallow lake. The deepest area of the lake is approximately 25 feet with few weeds. Water shoes are suggested. Water toys, a canoe, 2 kayaks and a paddleboat are provided for the renter’s enjoyment – use at own risk. The cottage is very private and faces south for all day sun!

Looking out to the lake from the shoreline: to the right of the dock it is weedy with lily pads and a rocky bottom. To the left of the dock is the open swimming area and entry to the lake. This area is weed free and has a sandy bottom. It is very accessible to all including children. Depth starts at the ankles and continues to get deeper as you walk out on a sandy floor.
