Relaxing, peaceful. Like a little Walden's Pond. Sweet little cabin right next to a quiet little lake. The perfect place to read and recharge.

The space

Two sliding glass doors face the lake with the shore yards away. The other side of the room has three large windows providing cross ventilation. The space is a great place for a writer's retreat and is a beautiful sanctuary with trees on both sides of the cabin. Unplug and relax and enjoy the serenity of the lake.

Guest access

There is an outside fire pit with seating around it. Chopped wood for an evening fire may be provided. There is a mowed area and plenty of space to park. The lawn provides plenty of space to play lawn games (bring your own) or lay out, undisturbed and stargaze.

Interaction with guests

I may not be available in person, but I would be available by phone.

Other things to note

The third bedroom is the loft overlooking the main room.

It's a great lake to view the water fowl and the otters and other animals along the shoreline.

Since the lake is not good for fishing, it keeps the boat traffic down. Although we have been known to swim in the lake, it is not a great lake for swimming.

Tap water is from a shallow well. Limited potable water is provided by a 5 gallon water jug on a water cooler with hot & cold taps.

No land line phone. No internet. Mobile cell and data service has worked in the past for me with both AT&T and Verizon, your experience may be different.

The sunrise was amazingly beautiful and panfishing from the shore was an unexpected experience. Well worth the money.

I can't say enough about the Lily Pad! The cabin is more than what we expected--the living area is open and inviting and has a beautiful lake view. We enjoyed watching the loons, geese, and blue herons that visit Buck Lake. Also, Jim is a very considerate host. Everything you need for a relaxing stay is at the Lily Pad--I highly recommend it!

Jim's place was tranquil, pleasant, and very accommodating. My husband, two-year-old daughter, and I stayed the weekend and had a lovely relaxing time. The kitchen was stocked with essentials so we could cook, and the living room with the vaulted ceiling was a great place to hang out. We loved being just feet away from the shore and watching the fish jump!

Our stay at the Lilly Pad was perfect. Jim is a great host and went out of his way to ensure we had a great, relaxing time. The lake is beautiful. There were loons and humming birds! Would stay again in heartbeat.

Beautiful spot in a quiet location… It was exactly what we needed. Close enough to drive to town if you need anything… Bedrooms are pretty small, but it worked out just fine for us. Jim was very easy to communicate with!
