Description from owner

Get away from it all and enjoy the crystal clear blue waters of this spring fed lake nestled among pine trees on a 1.5-acre lot. Camp outside, or sleep inside the 1680 sq. ft. home, with living room, kitchen, dining room, den, three bedrooms, and 2.5 bathrooms. Enjoy relaxing in front of an Amish electric fireplace all year round. Watch many high-definition television stations or surf the internet. Computer available for guest use. Wi Fi access anywhere in home or on screened porch.

Enjoy swimming, fishing, and riding the paddle boat and kayaking on this peaceful and pristine body of water. This lake is deep in the center (especially near the springs) and shallow around the edge. It is so clear you can use a mask and snorkel ( or the naked eye) to see fish, turtles and interesting aquatic vegetation. There are many bream that swim around the dock and some will actually look up at you expecting to be fed some bread. This is a nature lover's paradise! There is a variety of wild life to observe such as birds of prey, humming birds, otter, deer, and owls.

Relax and float on a raft, or partake in games such as badminton, volleyball, or ping-pong.

Roast marshmallows over a camp fire and star gaze upon the night sky.

Beds: 2 Queen Beds, 1 Double Bed, 1 Twin Bed
