About the property





LAKEVIEW (Lake Nettie--along the bay)








Eagle's Nest is an A-Frame cottage with a beautiful view of NettieBay, just across the small driveway. It is the largest cottage out of 8 and plays host to the largest number of guests (12 total). It has a compact, simple kitchen, comes with a 14' aluminum boat for guests to enjoy, a picnic table and of course your own private dock. Feel free to bring your kayaks or canoes to drop in the water! In addition, there are a few of adirondack chairs to relax in as your roast your marshmallows over your private fire-pit.

This three-story home has a walk-out basement with 2 sets of full-sized bunk beds, hosts the kitchen and living quarters on the second floor, and a set of bedrooms rests on the 3rd floor.

NettieBay is a great place to bring the family to enjoy your vacation. The outdoor fire pit, shared by all guests, is just the right spot for evening songs and storytelling. Lake Nettie is known as a wonderful fishing lake. Species of fish include: pan fish (blue gill, sun fish, rock bass, black crappie), small mouth bass, large mouth bass, northern pike, perch and the occasional walleye. If fly fishing is your passion, enjoy one of the many nearby streams of fish or the secluded 23 acre bullhead lake full of large mouth bass/large sun fish. Enjoy swimming, kayaking, canoeing, boating on the bay. Also, you can take a nature hike through 2000 private acres and enjoy wildlife viewing.
