Let’s start with the dreamy view you get from the main window in the cottage: a long path  that winds down past a fire pit to the water. Do we even need to show you anything more?

The main living room is just as pretty to look at—it’s airy, bright, and full of natural light.

The open concept design allows you to relax, dine, or just hang out with everyone at the same time.

The brand new kitchen sit just to the side of the dining area and is in keeping with the open floor plan. You’ll find everything you need here to make a mountain of meals, plus lots of storage for snacks that will feed your crowd.

There are private bedrooms and bunk rooms (six rooms with beds in total), a perfect mix for adults with kids. No matter what room you end up in, each has a cozy and clean feel.

There are three full bathrooms so you’ll never have to plan showers around each other. Plus a full laundry room equipped with a sink and Dyson means clean ups after long days spent on the water will be a breeze.

In the basement you’ll find a second living space with a TV and DVD player, as well as a ping pong table.

And if the fire pit, dock, and three outdoor seating areas closer to the water aren’t enough for you, you can also come out to the wrap-around deck for a snooze in the sun. An additional eating area, equipped with a BBQ, is just on the other side.
