It has a full kitchen, large screened deck with seating and 10-seat table, lower-level patio, 20x12 dock on the water, Satellite TV, and even a wood stove for a cozy fall or winter stay if you choose. The rental includes 2 Kayaks with adult-sized life vests, a paddle board, and a lily pad for warm water fun during the summer.

The space
This 2-bedroom, 2-bath lake home features a large, lake-front lot. There is full sun access for much of the day either in yard or on the floating dock, and plenty of shade because of the many mature pine trees. The lot is at the middle point of the lake on the main channel. The interior space includes an open living room and kitchen space, a large screened in deck with a 10-person farmhouse table and full seating area. Other amenities include 2 kayaks, a paddle board, a lily pad during the warm-water season, lounge chairs, a fire pit with camping chairs, a hammock, and a bicycle with air pump.

Guest access
Our home features a unique-to-you digital code for entry access upon arrival. This will be sent to you within the week prior to your stay.
