The space
The Paddle House was completely renovated in early 2021 to be optimized for larger groups, couples and multi-families. The cottage is perched up overlooking the waterfront and is a traditional back split design with a walkout basement and multiple outdoor areas set up for dining, lounging, and outdoor fun! While the day time view is incredible, at night you’ll feel like you’re in the mountains, with distant lights adding to the ambiance around the fire and incredible sunsets to enjoy.

As you approach The Paddle House a circular driveway allows for ample parking for all guests. There is a large entrance veranda where you can drop bags and shoes as soon as you arrive and race to the water.

The garage was completely renovated and being converted into a games room. Foosball, ping pong, air hockey, darts and a TV with an old-school inspired Nintendo and 600 games on a 50” TV is all included in the space. This allows for a great entertaining space away from the main home, not to disturb any young ones sleeping.

The front of the house boasts a huge front lawn, perfect for lawn games – badminton/volleyball, bocce, corn hole and giant jenga are all provided and included in the garage for you to enjoy.

The main home has 5-bedrooms and two full baths. On the top floor, you will find 3 bedrooms: master/ king, double bedroom, as well as, the bunk bedroom perfect for kids or friends wishing to share a room. It has three beds: a bunk bed with a double on bottom and single up top and a roll-away.

Down the hall, you will find a spectacular open concept great room with a chef’s kitchen. The space was designed to be an entertainer’s dream. The kitchen is equipped with an oversized 36” Thor gas range and oven that allows for cooking on 6-elements for the largest family gatherings. Large fridge, dishwasher, microwave and double farmhouse sink. The kitchen includes a coffee bar and comes fully stocked with a Nespresso machine, Smeg Coffee Machine, blender, all dishware, glassware and cutlery you will need. A custom 10 foot farmhouse table with double benches can host large family gatherings. Outside on the upper deck patio you will find a Weber BBQ, perfect for grilling and a large outdoor dining table.

Downstairs two additional bedrooms (queen & double) and large entertainment room with a 55” TV, Netflix, DVD collection and a huge assortment of board games for the whole family to enjoy. A mudroom with washer/dryer is included for your convenience and provides access to the outdoor covered lounge. It is perfect for relaxing in the evening with an oversized custom L-shaped outdoor couch available for you and your family. The fire pit is located right on the edge of the peak, providing a spectacular view of the water and a perfect place to relax for sunset.

You will also have access to the renovated Bunkie which includes a queen sized bed and futon and is a great escape from the main home.

The beautiful stone steps will lead you all the way down to the waterfront – warning, these are an incredible workout if you’re looking for a ‘stair master’ replacement. At the bottom of the steps, you will find all the water toys accessible for you and your group and access to a spectacular large dock, with a beautiful waterfront area. A small sandy access area is perfect for little ones to splash around in the water, while the water off the floating dock is 9” deep and perfect for swimming.

The Paddle House is ideally setup with multiple entertaining areas to provide ample space for any group. The waterfront access is a coveted amenity that will keep you cool in the hot summer months and deliver endless enjoyment for you and your family.

Guest access: guests will have access to the entire house including all outdoor areas and water toys. The home is accessible through electronic keyless entry.

NOTICE: our beautiful cottage renovations are currently in final stages and will be completed by the July 1st long weekend. More pictures will become available shortly or contact us for details. Not photographed: bunkie, games room, living/TV room and laundry/mudroom.
