SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS:
We did a major renovation and added a bunk room so we have three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and an en suite full bathroom (shower is used for the whole house). The second bedroom (which is a living area that converts to a bedroom with a farm door for privacy) has a comfy full-sized sleeper sofa. We have also have two pack 'n plays if you're planning to bring a little one! The new “bunk room” has three new queen-over-queen bunk beds. A total of 7 queen beds plus a full size sleeper sofa. Comfortably sleeps up to 10!

We provide all linens, blankets, and towels for each guest during their stay. No need to bring your own.

LIVING AREAS:
The main living area has huge windows that bring in tons of natural light and comfortable seating. The second living area has another couch and a TV, and it actually converts to the second bedroom. A custom farm door can be used to close it off for privacy! Then there is the sunroom, boasting white shiplap, tons of windows with gorgeous natural light and views of the water, and a table plus seating to enjoy your morning cup of coffee.

You will have access to the entire property, including the front and back yard. The front yard has lots of space to enjoy the lush greenery and gardens. The secluded, waterfront back yard has tons of opportunity for adventure and relaxation alike. We have a patio covered by a pergola – with a grape vine draping over. Pick the grapes and enjoy when in season! A firepit with seating right by the water is perfect for roasting s’mores. There is a hammock between two gorgeous trees – take an afternoon nap or curl up with your favorite book. A pier is installed during the summer months (end of May through end of September.) We have dredged out a lane so you dock boats or jetskis during the day.
