This clean and very well maintained and equipped waterfront 3 bedroom cottage boasts a lovely, grassy front yard which borders the lake, weed-free sandy swimming area, great boating with Bass and Lake Trout fishing and a wonderful view of the sunset each evening. There are no resorts or multi unit rentals in the area therefore lake traffic and noise is minimal. Friendly hosts available on site for help and information.
