Dog-Friendly Home on 1/4 Acre with Deck, Firepit, Electric Fireplace & Free WiFi

There’s something for everyone at this cozy home in the woods–even a cushy bed for the dog! The kitchen is the heart of the home, with its open layout, stainless steel appliances, and lovely breakfast bar, perfect for prepping your meals or just for gathering to gossip. The adjacent dining room has seating for four or, if the weather’s nice, opt to eat out on your deck. The kids and Fido can explore the 1/4-acre back yard, although dogs must be kept on a leash. If you want to go further afield, you're walking distance to Locke Lake and six private beaches. Back inside, you can settle into the roomy 7-person sectional to stream your favorite shows on the flatscreen TV, or get competitive with one of the board games on hand. Either inside or out, you couldn’t ask for a more comfortable stay.

The decor was great! I decorate similar to how you did this vacation home. It was very roomy and cozy

The house is exactly as pictured. The master bedroom is bigger than what the pictures may show. I loved the kitchen, as it was too cold to go skiing as we had planned, I stayed in this area. The kitchen has all of the basic necessities you may need to make a meal & plenty of space to do it in. The couch is extremely comfortable, which is great as it is the only room that has a tv. The temp was in the negatives while we were there and I had to reach out to find the hidden thermostat & when that was adjusted the house was decent temp wise. The side room upstairs did not warm up at all so my guest had to move down to the other room. Having two bathrooms was definitely a plus.

The only downfall to this trip was the driveway was only halfway plowed, although it was a U shaped driveway we had to drive out of. I had to back out as my car was wouldn’t go over the ice patch. The front stairs, and all balconies were covered in thick snow and ice. It appears they forgot they were having guests, even some salt on the stairs or balcony would’ve been great. I reached out about this and they offered to send someone on Sunday, but unfortunately that was our checkout date.
Also the mattresses are Very Hard which may be a pro for some.

I would love to see how it looks in the summer.
