If you are looking for a quiet place to get away, yet have all you want and need at your fingertips, this is the place! Located a few hundred yards off the popular Fife Lake, this lake house is located on the no-motor lake of Pickerel Lake - 42 acres ready for fishing (blue gill, crappie, pike, bass), kayaking, row boating, or just sitting on the dock and watch the wildlife all around. If you have a motor boat and want to go on the bigger lake, Fife Lake has several public access points right down the road. Enjoy the day out and about, then come back to your quiet retreat.
There is a row boat and three kayaks for your use while here and a fire pit to cozy up to at night. Sit on the large deck that takes in great views of the trees and lake.
Inside the lake house, you will find hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings, a fully equipped kitchen and dining room. The living room features leather reclining seating - the perfect place to enjoy the view, read a book (choose one from our library!), or catch a show on the flat-screen TV.
There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor. The first room features a queen bed and large closet. The 2nd bedroom has a full-sized bed and a large closet. Finishing up the main floor is a full bathroom with tub/shower and also a washer/dryer for your use if needed.
Upstairs in the loft is a third sleeping area - a beautiful queen-sized bed with a ceiling fan, overlooking the living & dining rooms and large floor-to-ceiling windows that face the lake.
