Guests can watch TV and others can enjoy a conversation or game playing without disturbing one another. Two bedrooms are located on the first floor which accommodates guests who prefer not to negotiate stairs.

Adult and child size beach chairs, beach towels and a red wagon to cart them make it easy to have everything you need for your day at the lake. An outdoor shower makes clean up convenient after swimming and sunning at the beach. After dining, lounge around the fire pit and toast marshmallows or head over to Oinks for homemade ice cream creations. In Harbor Country, there is no shortage of leisure activities to be enjoyed. Antique buffs can hunt for treasures, cyclists can hop on backroad trails and hikers can explore nature. A Farmers' Market is held on weekends or you can visit U Pick farms and orchards. Farm to Table restaurants, microbreweries and wineries offer foodies the extraordinary. Listen closely and you will hear the birds chirping and the of the waves lapping the shore. Take a leisurely stroll to the beach to witness the glorious sunsets and starry nights. Take a long walk and a short nap. I invite you to be my guest for a very special experience.More
