Perched on the edge of pristine Silver Lake, our country house sits on a large rolling lot overlooking the lake. The house has been enjoyed by many visitors from all corners of the globe.

A perfect setting to snuggle up with family and friends in front of the large stone fireplace; play board games; linger after a yummy meal; laugh the way you do with people you love. Walk on the wooded trails, kayak, and swim out the back door.

JUST UNPLUG.

The space
The main cottage has two levels with 4 bedrooms(2200 sf) with a bathroom on each level. On the main floor, you'll find a well-equipped kitchen, master bedroom with a full bathroom, as well as a 40 foot sun room for dinning while overlooking Silver Lake. The great room with a large field stone fireplace and comfy sectional sofa is perfect for snuggling up with family and dear friends; playing board games; lingering after a yummy meal or curling up with a good book.

The upper floor has three bedrooms(2 queens & a twin), a bathroom with a clawfoot bathtub for soaking, and a sitting room for writing or reading. All the upper level rooms overlook the Silver Lake.

The outdoor garden & lakefront: A perfect setting in all seasons. Swimming, kayaking, and fishing in the summer months, you'll find the setting heavenly on our peaceful lake. Or hike the many trails in the area. In the winter, cross-country skiing, skating, and snowshoeing, while passing by the ice fishing houses that take up residence on the lake, it's a dream. You'll find two kayaks, life jackets and lots of space for lounging by the lake or reading in the garden.

Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner on the garden patio. Our large Weber grill allows for preparing meals for the whole family, while enjoying the sunset on Silver Lake. And evenings chatting around the fire pit are a perfect way to end the day.
