Welcome to the lake. Sit back and relax because that’s what it’s all about at this vacation property.
There’s a huge living room on the main floor where you can cozy up and sit around a fireplace and enjoy some quality time with everyone.
The kitchen has a breakfast bar for anyone who wakes up early and wants an easy bowl of cereal or yogurt before heading outside for the day.
For meals where you want to gather together, this eight-person table will do. Or you can take dinner outside and grab a burger off the grill and sit by the water.
There are five separate bedrooms, each with minimal decor but lots of storage, so you can unpack and stay awhile.
Downstairs you’ll find an entire second living area. This is the perfect room for young kids or teens who want to watch a little TV, hang out, and feel like they have their own space.
And although we love promoting outdoor time at the cottage, we don’t blame you if you tend to spend a more than average amount of you vacation inside—with a games room like this, it’d be hard not to!
