Welcome to this wonderful family cottage with plenty of activities to keep the entire family entertained for your whole vacation!
Being situated on a private point of land is always a bonus, but even moreso because there are two (!!) seperate waterfronts and docks for you to enjoy sunshine all day long while swimming and playing in the beautiful clear waters. Both waterfronts have grass right to the shoreline, and the lake bottom is hard sand mixed with pebbles with a gradual slope. Shade can be found during the heat of the day from the number of mature trees found throughout the property, and the double hammock is a great place for that afternoon nap. The screened-in gazebo by the waterfront is a great place to sit, relax and even dine, while taking in peaceful views out to the lake.
There is a smorgasbord of activities available here at the cottage including croquet, horseshoes, bocce ball and even your own private, 9-hole, cottage made, golf course (not to PGA standards of course but an absolute blast to play!).
For every child's dream come true, there is an ultimate play clubhouse area - built in fall 2012. The building is 8' x 10' plus verandas and walkways.The interior of the clubhouse is finished with a loft day bed (perfect for a late afternoon nap), a ceiling fan light, a couch and a table with chairs for games. There is a slide, two regular swings along with a baby swing, two tire swings, a "retired" horse swing, a disc swing rope and two gym rings. Underneath the club house is a large sandbox and sandbox toys. Along the walkway to the slide, there is also a boat steering wheel, and there are lights along the roof edge and the walkway to illuminate the way at night.
Inside, you find the decor simply immaculate with laminate flooring found throughout the main floor with many pine accents adding to the decor. The sitting room is centered around a wonderful gas fireplace with exposed pine beams and a small bar area for your refreshments. After a day of activities, you can look forward to a soothing dip in the fabulous hot tub that is located in the entertainment room which comes complete with satellite TV, stereo, bar, card table and numerous board games available for you and the family. The kitchen is open with plenty of counter space and the dining table has room for the whole family at meal time. The bedrooms are all located on the upper level, and they are bright and spacious with plenty of closet space with the master suite enjoying shared ensuite privileges.
If you can tear yourself away from the property, the historic town of Huntsville is a short drive away, with quaint shops to explore on Main Street and a wide selection of cafes and restaurants to choose from. For longer day trips head to Arrowhead Park or Algonquin Park. End your nights back at the cottage for a BBQ dinner then roast marshmallows around the fire pit while watching the moon shine on the water surrounded by a sky filled with stars.
Come to a cottage where the whole family, both young and old, will have plenty to do and a multitude of amenities that will be sure to make memories that will last a lifetime.
We found your cottage on the web and hoped it would live up to what we read. It did! You have made your cottage the perfect retreat for renters. It's homey and comfortable, you have provided many items from water toys to indoor games. We had such a wonderful week that we would love to come back in the future.
Thank you for a wonderful week at your cottage. Our family had a fantastic time. The three little ones thoroughly enjoyed the playhouse, swing set and trampoline among other activities. The rest of us had fun filled days playing golf, bocce ball, horseshoes, kayaking, swimming and just relaxing on the dock. It is so peaceful here. We couldn't have asked for anything more.
How can we ever thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage with us. It is a relaxing, spacious and well appointed family retreat. There was absolutely nothing missing. Having 2 docks to enjoy the entire day outside in the sun was such a treat! The playground was also a definite bonus for our children. The children also loved sleeping in the bunk beds as well as all the stuffed animals, books and toys throughout the cottage. We've rented different cottages for the past 4 years and yours is the most renter friendly - empty fridges, freezers, closets and drawers. You make it very easy for us to arrive and settle in right away.
Thank you so much for the beautiful accommodations. We felt we were always at home, especially our dog. Our son celebrated his 9th birthday here and wanted to let you know it was amazing and he loved the playhouse and sandbox. Power went out twice, so we had to rough it (generator and all) and we had a blast! Hope to come back next year.
