If you've ever wanted to wake up in an old fashioned lakeside cabin, with views of water sparkling below in your own sandy cove, while your boat waits for you on a private dock, this is the place for you.
This big A-frame looks directly down the lake from 2 expansive decks (an upper and a lower). The view has has been described as 'the best view on the Lake'. Make sure to bring your binoculars!
The house is extremely private with no houses on either side, and is surrounded by oaks and pines. There is level off street parking for 4 cars and plenty of off street parking.
Your rental includes 2 lots, side by side, and you have exclusive use of both lots. The house is on one lot, and sits higher to capture the views. The lot next door has the waterfront area and is accessed via a trail down from the house to the beach and dock. There is no building on the waterfront lot, and the lots appear to be one property (please see pictures to get a clear idea of the proximity of the house to the lake).
Please note trail slopes down from the house and is uphill from the beach. This is a moderately steep climb and may not be suitable for the elderly. Alternate access to the beach area is from the launch area which is next door to the beach area.
The beach area has a big U-shaped newer dock for your boats. There is also a sandy area with chairs and a picnic table so you can spend the day at the water. You may use our big red canoe or the paddle boat to cruise around the lake. Wakeboard, water ski, jet ski, tube, kayak, or simply float or swim in the lake. The waterfront area is on slow water (meaning boats can only cruise slowly in this part of the lake). You can launch around the corner at the homeowner's launch facility and will be approximately 5 minutes to the fast water.
There are 3 levels on the house, each level has a full bathroom. There are 2 master bedrooms, each with a king bed and a lake view. The other 2 bedrooms have a total of 3 queen beds. There are also 2 living areas so the kids can have their own space to play games and watch TV.
The dining area has a big round table that will seat 8. There is also a bar with 2 barstools and another table on the deck for dining. You will find a well-equipped kitchen and a china cabinet with everything you need to serve your group. There is also a newer gas grill on the deck.
We will consider one or two well behaved dogs with an increase of $25 per dog to your rent. There is a large dog run that is off the lower deck so your pup can be outside in a secure enclosure.
The best thing about the house is the ability of the group to hang out and enjoy the vacation in so many different areas. Play on the beach and dock area, watch the action on the upper deck with the killer view, hide out and play cards on the lower deck (completely shaded with furniture and a porch swing), watch a movie in the game room, cook, talk, and drink wine in the main living area, or hide out in the loft to read, watch TV or work on the computer (there is Internet access).
If you are a 'lake' person, a 'boat' person, a view person or someone who wants to 'graduate' from camping this could be the perfect vacation for you.
SPECIAL NOTE: This rental is on the same street as VRBO rental 236862, so if you have a big group, and need 2 houses, please check out this rental. It is owned by a different family, but the 2 houses have been rented together on several occasions for family reunions, etc. and would give you 2 large private docks and an good expanse of beach area.
