The Propane BBQ (gas included) and outdoor dining is also on this deck. We have 2 dining tables outside on the decks. One seats 6 and the other one seats 4. The firewood is stored on the deck (under tarps to keep it dry) as well as by the firepit. The decks have wood screens that can block off the entrances for safety if you want to keep pets or children from leaving the deck area.
Beach Area: The cottage is set back from the water but it's a short walk across a relatively flat grassy area to reach the water. The waterfront features a sandy beach area with walk in water access that's perfect for dogs, children and seniors. The beach area also has a dock with 2 adirondack chairs and a number of water toys including a canoe, an aluminum boat, stand up paddle boards and kayaks. There is also a firepit close by to the beach for roasting marshmallows and campfires. The dock faces south for lots of sunshine. There is a picnic table and an umbrella down in the beach area. Want to bring your own boat? No problem... there is a free boat launch nearby and storage for a boat trailer beside the entrance to our driveway.
Pets: We love our furry friends and we know that they have a blast on family vacations to the cottage as well. We happily welcome them however, please cover our furniture (with the sheets provided) just in case they jump up! We also ask that you bring their beds with you so that they don't sleep on our beds as a courtesy to other guests. And of course, clean up after them in the yard.
Housekeeping: To make the cottage enjoyable for all we have a cottage housekeeper that comes in and cleans the cottage between uses. That being said, we ask that you leave the cottage relatively clean (including returning chairs, watercrafts, games, etc. to their proper locations) and that you take all garbage and recycling with you. The cost of cleaning is included in the rental.
