A-frame windows allow you to watch the sunrise or sunset. When mealtime comes around, the chef's kitchen has your back! It's appointed with all stainless steel appliances and all cooking essentials to prepare the most delicious homemade treats and meals for the crew. The dining area is just off the kitchen and boasts lake views while you chat and dine. This level opens onto an extensive lakefront wrap-around deck with an outdoor dining area and a new gas grill ready for fire.

Downstairs, you will discover an entertaining game area featuring a rec room, a big smart TV with a DVD, a Blu-ray player, a bevy of DVD classics, and a Ping-Pong table where you can show your A-Game!
