Exterior & Grounds

The lakefront side of the home faces north on a curved promontory, catching both sunrises and sunsets in the summertime. The front entrance faces south, providing a sunny spot for morning coffee on the patio or a shady sanctuary in the afternoon on the front porch in the rocking chairs. The cathedral windows offer panoramic views of the lake, with the wall of windows in the south-facing loft allowing the main living area to be bathed with natural light all day.

Outdoor gathering and activity spaces abound, whether it's for your entire group or just a quiet conversation for two. The lakefront area with a huge dock and pier with pontoon boat and gazebo always has room for everyone. The lakeside patio off of the lower level seats 12 around the fire pit and half a dozen or so in the hot-tub with a large weatherized TV. For al fresco dining, the deck off of the dining room seats 12 comfortably.

The sun-drenched front of the house includes a bistro dining table for four, loungers under the majestic oaks and pines, and rocking chairs on the porch. These spaces are also prime viewing area to keep tabs on kids jumping on the trampoline, playing basketball, riding bikes on the trails and ramps, and exploring the sprawling treehouse. There's even a second firepit in this front yard area.

Enjoy the views as you descend the curved stone path and steps to the lakefront. Just before you arrive at the dock, you’ll find a fully enclosed and climate controlled gazebo complete with seating for six or sleeping for two. There’s a fridge and tv in the gazebo, so you’re all set whether you need to refresh your beverage and cool down, keep an eye on your favorite team’s game, or provide a comfortable spot for a little one to take a nap… all without leaving the action at the lakefront. The gazebo is also the perfect warming hut for winter sports including ice fishing.

Last but not least, the enormous dock and pier on 165 feet of frontage offer everything you could possibly need for a fun and relaxing day on the water. Start your day with a splash off the diving board or the 8’ curving slide at the end of the pier. Lounge on the swimming raft anchored offshore or play king-of-the-mountain on the 20’ water mat. Have a seat on one of the many Adirondack chairs for conversation or reading, or stretch out on a lounger for a nap. The oversized umbrella provides shade as needed, and at the base of it you’ll find a charger for your devices. Connect via WiFi to the Sonos system with outdoor speakers to play your favorite tunes while you enjoy your day on the water.

The toughest decision you may face during your stay is choosing which floating vessels you'll take out to explore the lake. Your options include:

  • a pontoon boat with electric motor charged by solar panels
  • the “Megalodon” stand-up paddleboard (SUP) that can be floating raft for a dozen people
  • four traditional single-person SUPs of various sizes and styles
  • an extra-sturdy SUP with fishing rod holders and a seated option
  • two adult-sized single kayaks
  • two kid-sized single kayaks
  • a tandem paddle-kayak
  • a four-person paddle-boat
  • an old-school canoe
  • and even a small flat-bottomed jon boat to get into the lake’s shallowest nooks and crannies.  
  • Or maybe you’ll just hook a noodle under your arms and float around aimlessly.
