About this listing
This comfortable, welcoming room/private bath and shared living space/kitchen offers you a retreat. Swimming, kayaking and fishing are available at the lake across the street. Unique small wineries are nearby.
This sweet, serene home, by a lake, has two guest bedrooms tucked in back of the house with private baths. We offer an outdoor hot tub during the cold weather (not summer), two kayaks with wheeled carriers, and there is a massage table to use if you'd like. The kitchen and living room are large and usually private.
Guests park in driveway by the glass garage doors. It's a short walk to lake swimming, fishing, deck lounging and easy kayaking. The two guest bedrooms/baths are upstairs in back of house. They share a kitchen, dining/living area and outdoor hot tub (in winter). Downstairs is a separate apartment.
Interaction with guests
After orienting you to the home and area, I will allow you privacy as desired. I may be present briefly in shared areas during your stay, but am usually downstairs. Knock on downstairs doors to contact us at home. We are happy to assist you.

My aim is to offer kindness and respect to foster harmonious relationships. Hosting guests allows me the enjoyable opportunity to provide a peaceful, nurturing, home-base for travelers. I truly love the location of my home, nestled near water, with nearby natural areas to explore by foot or kayak, interesting small wineries and hot-air balloons passing above. For me, the very best part of anchoring here now is being with my spouse.
