Enter the front door and be taken in by the surrounding water views, and enjoy charming verandas and balconies that overlook the lake and gardens surrounding the cottage. Guests can also enjoy the use of a private beach, fishing, kayaks and a paddleboat!

The space
Sleep in comfort on a memory foam queen-size mattress in the bedroom and find extra space in the loft above the kitchen, which contains a futon sleeper.
Please be cautious when climbing the ladder to the loft and take caution while enjoying the balcony overlooking the pond from the second floor.
