Kalita Point Waterfront Upscale Retreat


Property Details

Updated: Jul 16, 2016
Lakeront Home, 3 full Bedrooms, 2 full Baths/walk in shower, 10 Sleeps

Beautiful one story (no stairs) Upscale and fully Updated Lake HOME that has a large wide open feel on a quiet peninsula and on the lake. Lakefront property is on a safe and secluded cove connected to the large part of the lake with access only 50 yards from the cove by waterway. The home sits on a private culdesac road. Free high speed wifi and Directv included. The home boasts floor to ceiling (cathedral celing) windows facing the lake. Boat launch is two driveways down (private boat launch). Smaller boats (up to 25 feet and pontoon boats - See picture of boat parked in cove.) can be parked at the house bulkhead for easy access to the backyard and house. The cove actually provides a small beach (6 - 8 FT of sand) for the little ones with adult supervision depending on water levels for the period.

All condiments, spices and starter sets of paper plates, paper towels, toilet paper, matches, and WOOD for the firepit. I supply usually enough to last a weekend. For stays that are longer you will need to probably purchase additional supplies.

Awesome fishing spots in and around this peninsula.

Quiet Lake

  • 4 of 5

The location of the house was great. The area is secluded and quiet, which we loved. The lake was very quiet as well, making it a very safe place to boat and tube. The house itself was very clean and well stocked with basic necessities. The backyard was a great place to bbq and hangout after a day in the water. We did take a boat, 22 ft. vee hull, we were able to pull up and tie up on the bulkhead.

Owner's Response: Well thank you so much for making the experience so wonderful. The house was perfect including the towels you washed and the kitchen and baths were spotless. I have posted your pic of the 22 ft. boat parked in my cove. I really like the boat and wish I could have met you in person. You were such a pleasure to work with and I would love to have you all back again. Thank YOU!

Had a great time in spite of rain and mosquitos

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at your house. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were really comfortable. If it was another time of year, without the flies and mosquitoes, it would have been really great on your deck. Maybe if we didn't have all that rain things would have been different. Anyway, I was pleased with your house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Yes, unfortunately the middle of summer, July and August there can be a considerable amount of mosquitos especially during the rainy days. I do leave several bottles of fogger for your use on the deck and in the backyard. I can do many things to improve your stay but controlling Mother Nature is a bit out of my scope. Glad otherwise you enjoyed.

Fully stocked kitchen and Comfy beds

  • 5 of 5

Teresa, your house was wonderful. It was so nicely furnished and decorated. Beds were very comfy ane were great after a day of fishing and swimming! Also all of the items that you provided (condiments/spices, coffee/sugar, mustard/mayo, etc.) were great! Kept us from having to buy items especially for the trip. We used the fire pit to roast weiners and make S'mores for the kids and they loved it! Thank you for sharing your home with us. Kathey

Owner's Response: I just want to thank you for choosing my home and treating it so well. You left everything so clean and it made me feel good that you took such good care. You were a pleasure to do business with and please come back. I love guests such as you and your group. You all make it a pleasure to extend my home. Also thank you for doing the towels. With 9 people including babies just cleaning the towels alone would have probably put me back a few hours on the cleaning. Hope the bit of a refund on cleaning fee was ok. Thank you again!

  • Large granite Island kitchen surrounded with bar stools opens to sliding glass doors which lead to the deck, backyard and lake view. Kitchen has all ceramic dishes/plates, glasses including wine goblets, and cookware/pots/pans, glass casserole dishes and bakeware tins, flatware etc. There are enough full settings of plates/bowls/flatware for 10 plus people. An additional electric roasting cooker that can be placed outside to keep the house cool in summer (cooks a 18 lb turkey or roast, prime rib) and Large crockpot, daddy fryer are also available. Formal Dining room table with dry-cleaned linens are avaiable for an extra set up fee upon request. Entire house, top to bottom is sanitized after each stay (ALL towels, blankets, sheets, pillows, mattress covers remote controls, door handles, fridge condiment bottles, light switches, toaster handles, cabinet knobs...... and anything a human hand/foot etc can touch is cleaned with either bleach or germ killing agents) after every stay. Carpets shampooed and couch steam cleaned, ceiling fans etc done once a month. Cleaning takes an entire 10 plus hours so check out time is usually enforced so that the entire house can be sanitized. Each bed has a shower liner on the mattress (which gets bleached and cleaned each time), then a blanket, then mattress cover, then bottom sheet, top sheet, blanket and lastly a comforter. All dishes/pots/pans/glasses/glassware/flatware are removed from cabinets and sanitized as well in the kitchen after each stay. ALL hardwood and tile floors are steam cleaned everytime. Baths/showers/sinks/toilets are bleached. Front load washer is bleach cleaned on clean cycle and dryer wiped out. Bath matts/throw rugs/kitchen towels/hot pads etc are all sanitized. I stress all of this because the labor is intense but well worth the guests' peace of mind. You will experience the best, most peaceful night's sleep on fine high thread count sheets and cozy blankets. The two master bedroom beds are high end pillowtop mattresses purchased at luxury furniture stores. The primary master has large flat panel 42' tv, the second master has a large 32' flat panel HDTV and receiver, as does the Living room with 42: DVR/Directv access for viewing enjoyment. The house is completely wired for HDTV, with the exception of the third bedroom. Each sink is fully stocked with luxury handsoap with sanitizer and lotion pump bottles and bathrooms have shampoo, rinse and soap with plentiful towels for each guest. Although you need to bring your own groceries, the basics such as Pam, Olive oil, aluminum foil, baggies, garbage bags, limited paper goods (towels, paper plates, party cups), coffee, sugar, tea, and basic condiments like salt, squeeze bottles of ketchup, mayo and mustard, Worsteshire sauce and spices etc are provided. Full sized (front load) washer and dryer with special HE detergent and softener are provided to ensure efficiency of each wash. Grills and patio furniture are on the deck and ready for relaxing while enjoying the lakeview under the shades of the exquisite pines. The backyard is completely fenced for kids and small pets (with additional pet fee for pets). A hammock under the shaded pine trees is perfect for a quiet rest. A ceramic firepit is also provided for marshmallows and hot dogs over a fire. There is additional parking (approx 60 feet long and 15 feet wide) next to the large garage if an RV needs accommodation no. Parking for parties will accomodate at least 5 cars (without boats). There is plenty of boat and trailer parking as well. Separate (Two Zones) for central AC/heat and water heaters for both sides of the house. Two Master suites. One (includes shower, double vanity bath, and toilet) is directly off the living room for one zone. The other side of the house has the second master and has its own thermostat with separate bathroom a few feet away in the hall. Kitchen, third bedroom and guest bath have new and separate central ac/heat and water heater for customized comfort. Full size front load high efficiency washer and dryer. Third bedroom has one double bed and another with two twin bed pillowtop mattresses with a TV that has a Wii game set up for the kiddos to play. There are 10 actual sleeping spaces, not including the Living room sectional which accomodates two additional people. There is 1 double bed, 2 twin bed mattresses and 1 queen sleeper sofa bed near the fireplace, 1 queen bed in second master, and 1 king bed in the main master. I have all the sheets, blankets, towels, pillows etc. Penwaugh Marina directly faces back yard on the cove and has easy access for any marina needs to include live minnows, bait, fishing tackle, gas, boat parking etc. The cove is magnificent for younger ones as well as adults to frolick and float in. The water is usually one to two feet deep with sandy bottom but gradually increases to 10 feet in the middle of the cove. Floats can easily be anchored or tied to the bulkhead with easy access from the backyard. (As of Aug 1, 2015 the lower water provides shallow water then gradually gets deeper, but can still accommodate boat parking easily). Corner market at entrance of the Kalita point peninsula carries most basic grocery needs such as sodas, bread, breakfast foods, and gas and other typical corner store items.
