It’s just a short stroll to the water. There is 70 feet of
private waterfront and a 25 foot dock. The lake bottom is generally
muddy but next to the dock is a sandy, gradual entry into the water
for swimming or splashing around. Water depth at the end of the
dock is about 6 feet. The dock is ideal for taking in a great panoramic
view of the lake and evening sunsets.
On the opposite side of the lake is a serene view of wooded, undeveloped
shoreline. This view becomes spectacular in the fall when the trees
are changing colour and reflecting upon the lake. There is great
swimming off the dock or bring your rod and try your hand at fishing.
If you have your own canoe or kayak you can explore the lake.
If you don’t, no worries, there is a paddle boat, canoe with
paddles, and 4 adult life jackets available for your use during
your stay (young children always need to be supervised near water).
There is also a fire pit at the shore where you can enjoy evening
campfires, roasting marshmallows, taking in the starry night sky
and sharing stories with friends and family.
