We invite guests to bring their gear (i.e. balls, clubs, rackets, etc.).

House exclusive amenities include 6 single kayaks, 1 tandem kayak (for 2 people), a canoe (for 2 people), adult life jackets, and paddles that guests can find on the boat rack on the beach (marked K50), and that guests can use. Motor boats can be rented from third parties, and attached to the house's private dock. Fishing is allowed on the lake (catch and release). The house has a hot tub that offers privacy and lake views. You'll also be able to enjoy a fire pit in comfortable chairs on the private beach of the house.

Babies are welcome! The lake house has a high chair, a pack&go play yard with changing station and bassinet, a top-of-the-stairs gate, and a motorized travel rocking chair. Dogs (not cats due to host's severe cat allergies) are welcome too, there are 2 dog beds and bowls.

The main/first floor has a fully stocked kitchen that opens not only onto the indoor dining and living areas, but also onto outdoor grilling, dining and living. The interior dining table seats 10 adults, in an open space where the kitchen, a living room, and the wood burning stove are located. The living room also seats 10 adults. The deck is private, large, surrounded by trees, and offers great lake views; it has two sectional sofas, a dining set, and a Weber grill. This floor also has one bedroom (queen) with a large desk, and a full bathroom.

Upstairs, there are three bedrooms (king, queen, 2 twin XL), and a full bathroom. One of the bedroom (king) has a large solid wood desk that can host two work stations, it has a printer/scanner/copier, and a computer monitor. It also has great lake views to enjoy both from its private balcony, and from the king size bed. The other two bedrooms on that floor have lake views, both of them have desks.

The lower floor hosts a cocktail and TV lounge, which opens to a paved covered patio where the hot tub is located, and to the stairs leading to the private beach, to the lake-side deck, to the kayaks marina, to a fire pit located on the private beach, and to the private dock on the lake.
