It has two bedrooms which can sleep between two and six guests - one with a queen sized four poster bed and one with two single beds and a trundle with all linen supplied. The cottage is spacious, decorated in a bright shabby chic manner with a gallery of original paintings. There are wrap around wide verandas and comfortable cane furniture overlooking the lake. There is a fully self-contained kitchen with gas stove/oven, electric frypan, toaster, refrigerator, cutlery and crockery and cooking equipment. There is an adjacent outdoor kitchen pavilion with gas barbecue and a campfire by the lake.

The Boathouse

The Boathouse is a rural contemporary vernacular architecture replete with nautical design themes, with upper and lower decks overhanging the lake. The northern doors/walls fold back entirely to allow uninterrupted access to lake views. This cottage is wonderfully romantic and has a queen sized bed with muslin canopies with a double futon in the loft. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas cooktops, electric oven, a microwave and health grill. There is a barbecue on the deck as well as a camp fire by the lake. A comfy hammock on the downstairs deck is great for snoozing.
