3BR/2BA cottage with lots of privacy and a big view from two deck levels, a lakeside bedroom balcony, a big screened porch (with eyebolts and carabiners for 2 hammocks) and a dock tucked into a cove. The covered lower deck allows for rain or shine outdoor cooking, with a sink and a grill with charcoal provided. Available upon request are: an LP gas boiler pot with basket, an LP gas smoker and/or a Traeger pellet grill. The home has a flat circle drive entrance with parking just a few feet away from the front door. A lighted 32-step staircase and a lighted path lead to the lakeside deck and covered dock with year-round water, swim/sun deck, boat slip, jet ski port, dog-friendly ladder and mini fridge. The home has a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, a wood-burning fireplace inside and a chimenea outside, with firewood and starter logs provided. Guided striper fishing is great (see pictures), with dock pickup and drop-off. Trout fishing below the dam is also popular.
The home sits on a wooded lot with 550 feet of shoreline, starting in the cove and ending at a point of land that shelters the dock from wind, waves and boat traffic. This provides for safe swimming and paddling, minimum wave action on the dock, and just 50 yards to big water. This house is located minutes from the town of Crane Hill and just 1.5 miles from Rock Creek Marina (by water and by road). There is a canoe, a paddleboat, a standup paddleboard and 2 kayaks for renter’s use, with life jackets and paddles provided. Parking space is available for a renter’s boat trailer. There is a hiking trail to a sheltered ledge in Cap'n Jack's hollow, fun exploring for kids of all ages. All staircases and decks are kid-friendly, with railings and wire panels or pickets. Smoking is allowed outside on the dock, decks and porch only. Pets are allowed. We just ask that they use the XL kennel crate provided when inside the house.
There are TVs in the den and on the porch with DVD players and a TV in bedroom 2, all with Dish Network America's Top 120+, DVR and SEC Network. You can DVR the game, play in the lake, and watch the game later.
