This property is an authentic 1940's log cabin that has the rustic charm of yesteryear, and all the comforts of today. Enjoy unique privacy on 3 acres of wooded waterfront overlooking gorgeous Lake Pleasant. Great views from the huge wrap around deck, lakeside gazebo and the second cottage that serves as your second glamour bedroom. We supply a very good set of binoculars AND a telescope for the amazing bird and wildlife viewing! Nightime is for star gazing, roasting marshmallows and telling tall tales around the firepit. The main cabin is an open floorplan with gas fireplace, kitchen, renovated bathroom and sleeping loft with one double and two twin beds. Classic wrap around porch is furnished with adirondack chairs, dining table, grill and one truly magnificent view. There is an additional one room cottage with luxurious queen bed, chandelier and incredible lake views, designed for the ultimate 'glamping' (glamour camping) experience! The view from this little cottage is picture perfect. This can be used as your Master Bedroom or as luxury second bedroom. Visit the local beach to swim, or rent kayaks, paddle boards and motorboats nearby for exploring the lake. Our waterfront is beautiful, but is marshy rather than sandy, so not appropriate for swimming. However, we do supply two kayaks that you can launch right out front and swim off them if you like. The launch may be a bit tricky during dry a dry spell, as our water level is dependent on lake level which varies. We supply nice bedding and linens, bath mats, kitchen and hand towels, but we do ask guests to bring their own beach and bath towels. What's to LOVE about this property? Ultimate Privacy (a rare find on the waterfront!), Views, Wildlife, Cuteness, Uniqueness and Plenty of Room to Roam on and around the property. What might you NOT love? The waterfront is accessible, but is not swimmable (other than from the kayaks). There is no washer/dryer here. We do not have a/c (rarely needed around here), but we do provide fans for those warmer days and eves. No pets or smoking on property, not to be used for entertaining. Children 12 and over welcome, not appropriate for small children. We just bought and renovated this little peice of heaven, so we have very few reviews, but see our other properties for guests experience at our other properties! Guests must agree to and sign our rental agreement stating they will follow house rules and instructions. More

As good as the pictures on the ad. Recommend this cabin for a great experience. The area is good for hikes and the lake view and stars at night were lovely.
