Great one bedroom patio apartment for a fun weekend getaway or for the week. The lake is absolutely beautiful and the apartment is very private, comfy, and quiet. It is a great property for "overflow" for families that need extra space for relatives or guests. Also, great for overnight stay, on way to another destination or just a "romantic or relaxing kayaking" weekend.

The space

It is one bedroom that sleeps 4 people. One queen bed and queen pull-out sofa. It is convenient to the state park with watersports rentals. It is 350 feet to the day dock for swimming, kayaking, jet skis, or boating. It is a SHARED DOCK, but the other 2 neighbors rarely use the dock.

Large open patio with gas grill, outdoor furniture, lounge chairs, & swimming floats, 2 kayaks, oars & lifejackets, etc. A large backyard with wildlife. Great walking areas. Direct TV. INTERNET provided. There is a kitchenette with microwave, coffeemaker, toaster oven, small refrigerator, and dishes (but paper products are included,) etc. NO FULL KITCHEN (no stove or kitchen sink, at this time, I am in process of getting estimates on adding those two items). But there is a gas grill and a charcoal grill for cooking other than microwave.

Sometimes I am here on the property enjoying all the amenities and at other times I am traveling.

Guest access

Ample parking space for vehicle, boat & trailer, etc. Patio with gas grill, outdoor patio furniture, swimming floats, etc. A large backyard with wildlife (lots of deer). Great walking areas. Hiking at the state park. Direct TV. Internet provided. Two kayaks, paddles and lifejackets available & shared with owner if on property at the time of rental. KAYAK at YOUR OWN RISK!! OWNER ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ACCIDENTS, INJURIES OR LOSS OF EQUIPMENT. Please use the solid red kayak or the yel/wht kayak. If there are other kayaks at the dock, please DO NOT USE them. They belong to neighbors. Rental guests will be responsible for replacing equipment if loss occurs.

Interaction with guests

Sometimes I'm at the lake kayaking. But I love to travel so I do that often. But have someone on call (Deborah, sister) if needed.

The place was wonderful and Beverly was great. Very close to the water (about a 30 second walk to the dock) and is also about 20 minutes from the Bridgewater Plaza. Two kayaks available which were a blast. A very clean and comforting place. Highly recommend.

Loved staying at Beverly's home!! It was practically right on the water. We used her two kayaks to enjoy the lake, and were also able to dock our boat right on her dock. We were able to use her gas grill to cook all of our food. The basic kitchenette was definitely enough for our weekend trip. Thank you Beverly!
