There’s no shortage of outdoor activities to enjoy—whether you’re hosting guests for the weekend or in search of enjoyable ways to stay active, there’s truly something for everyone here. Hang out on the expansive deck that wraps its way around the home and overlooks the beautiful scenery, or set up a couple of comfy chairs on the dock where you can fish from the stocked lake. Explore the lake in your pedal boat, kayak, or on your paddle board, or go for a swim to cool off. A convenient outdoor shower is even at the ready! And when you’re not taking advantage of the lake, there are plenty of ways to enjoy this dynamic property and its surroundings; play Pickleball at the park that’s right next door, put your green thumb to work growing your favorite flowers and shrubs, and get a bonfire going so you can roast marshmallows and stay warm while the sun goes down. 

3. Captivating cabin vibes! 

Gorgeous wood elements, statement-making beans overhead, and the classic A-frame design are just a few of the features that contribute to this home’s cabin-inspired atmosphere.
