Set on the beautiful shores of South Lake, a short drive from the town of Minden, this property is ideal for two families looking to getaway together.
South Lake has a relatively small cottage population and Hillcrest enjoys a sandy shore with small beach that appears as the water level drops over the summer. This has been proven to be ideal for children as the Owners have three small children of their own. They have commented that it is great for the parents as they can sit on the dock or relax in the waterside cabana while monitoring their kids paddling at the shoreline.
Once it is time to retire inside, you can enjoy a well laid out property that has main level accommodations as well as an apartment in the basement. On the main floor are three bedrooms (two with queen beds and one bedroom with bunk beds). The master bedroom has an ensuite 4-piece bathroom while the other two bedrooms share another 4-piece bathroom.
On the basement level you will find a large open plan rec room with beer fridge and bar area. Here you can play games and enjoy DVDs while relaxing on the large plush leather couches. The 4th bedroom is off the rec room and has a queen bed and shares the 3 piece bath (with shower) with the rest of the basement level.
One of the best features about this property is the amazing screened in waterfront cabana. This allows the family to be down at the waterfront enjoying the sights and sounds until late into the evening while the grassy yard is also ideal for kids to play and enjoy a campfire under the starry sky.
The shoreline at Hillcrest is firm and sandy underfoot to about 3-4ft out then becomes a little mushy. The waterfront is ideal for most children to paddle or wade around at the waterline while adults may prefer to dive into the water off the end of the dock into approx 6ft of water. The lake is clear and mostly weed free. Water shoes are recommend to protect against the occasional rock.
