The 400 sq ft deck has plenty of room for all of you to lounge around, eat and talk the night away.

High speed wireless internet and DVDs on both floors allow for different age groups to enjoy themselves while still at the same cottage. Enjoy meals together on the lower level or prepare smaller quieter gatherings depending on your tastes and desires.

The 210 sq. ft. deck provides you with a great spot for sunbathing, or use the 180 sq. ft. dock for docking your boat and jumping in for a refreshing swim. Enjoy the canoes and kayaks with a leisurely paddle or an energetic exploration of the lake.
