Most suited for a couple. Can sleep more, extra charge for more than 2. The lakehouse sets on a private 5-acre lake on 25 well-manicured acres. Fabulous sunsets! For a tiny house it has a spacious lower level with vaulted ceiling and upper bedroom loft. Wifi & TV includes Netflix, Amazon & Hulu. Hammocks, swimming, boating (canoe, 4 kayaks, john boat, water slide). For fishing we have boats, nets & fish-dressing station (bring poles & bait). PLEASE LIST ACCURATE NUMBER OF GUESTS WHEN BOOKING.

The space
This is your private lake to explore, boat, swim and fish (no license needed). We have been stocking the lake with several types of fish since 2006. Quiet, serene setting with beautiful sunsets. The lake house is spacious for a tiny house, with high vaulted ceilings and an upper loft open to below. The kitchen is fully supplied with tableware, cookware, cutlery and utensils. Kitchen has a full size refrigerator, two-burner cook top, small oven (holds a 12 inch pizza), microwave, electric skillet, double kitchen sink, toaster, coffee pot with coffee and filters. Also for cooking we have an outdoor charcoal grill and all grill utensils. Bring your charcoal and lighter fluid. We also have a rack for the fire pit for outdoor wood cooking. Firewood provided. We have hot dog sticks for wieners/marshmallows. Owner home is 250 yds away, visible from lakehouse.

Newly built summer of 2021, a large covered patio for added shade. It has an outdoor eating area, a hanging bed/ropeswing, and deck boxes which store cushions and all sizes of life jackets. Stairs lead to an upper deck for star-gazing. Upper deck has a pubtop table set and lounge chairs

The lower level futon makes into a double bed. The upper loft is open to below and has shared space for a double and two twin beds. All beds have good, new mattresses.

My husband and I are retired. We enjoy working on our lake property. Our permanent dwelling is on the same 25-acres as our lake and rental lake house. While our guests will have privacy, we will be near by if we can do anything to make their stay more perfect. My life motto "Without the dark we would never see the stars" (literal and figurative) I challenge my guests to turn off all the lights, lay in the hammocks and marvel at God's amazing universe. The stars are a fabulous sight on a clear night.
