Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 bath, private beach, direct lake access & dock.

Our families and children have enjoyed this summer 'camp' for many years. The beach is sandy and the views of the open and clean bay are A+! We welcome your family to enjoy it as well and build your own 'summer camp' memories.

Our cottage is well maintained and very beloved. Wireless Internet is available at the cottage.

The kitchen is open to the living and dining area (separated by a breakfast bar). The kitchen has all the necessities for cooking and baking; propane gas grill is on the deck for your use and enjoyment! There is an oversized picnic table and a round deck table for your meals; looking out over the Keeler's Bay.

Note: To see reviews from past renters please click on "About Camp Driftin" below.

The private beach is mere steps away from the cottage; providing a safe place for children of all ages to play and explore. Sand galore! A dock is provided for your ease in boating, fishing and splashing into the water!

A true family gem that is great in the summer or fall (in 2013, we added a gas fireplace for those extra chilly evenings)!

About Camp Driftin

This is a family cottage since the 1950's. We love being able to share our cottage with guests and hearing about their lovely summer memories. We know how special they are!

It is fun to see who else "shares" this cottage with you... here is a picture of our family! We love this cottage dearly and welcome you to come make incredible memories!

Camp Driftin purchased this cottage in 2011

What makes this cottage unique

The beach is mere steps away from the deck which makes it easy to access your boat, watch your children play or jump in on a hot day. The water is a very gradual slope with the end of the dock coming about 4 - 4 1/2 feet deep. We are on a dead end which makes the road quiet... we wake to the birds in the morning and go to sleep smelling like bon-fire smoke from roasting s'mores. It is a place to re-connect as a family, build memories, play in the water, bike ride on the road and just simply explore and slow down...

Guestbook comments from the owner

"I just wanted to let you know that everything was great. The sun and moon were at the rendez-vous!! Very beautiful and quiet. Wonderful sights for sure. We will be back next year for longer."
