Perched on the edge of pristine Silver Lake, our country house sits on a large rolling lot overlooking the lake and has been enjoyed by many visitors from all corners of the globe. A perfect setting to snuggle up with family and friends in front of the large gas fireplace; play board games; linger after a yummy meal; laugh the way you do with people you love. Walk on the wooded trails, kayak, swim, or ski out the back door.


The space
The house has three levels with 5 bedrooms(3600sf) with a bathroom on each level. On the main floor, you'll find a well-equipped kitchen, master bedroom with a full bathroom, as well as a 40 foot sun room for dinning while overlooking Silver Lake. The great room with a large gas fireplace and comfy sectional sofa is perfect for snuggling up with family and dear friends; playing board games; lingering after a yummy meal or curling up with a good book.

The upper floor has three bedrooms(2 queens & a twin), a bathroom with a claw foot bathtub for soaking, and a sitting room for writing or reading. All the upper level rooms overlook the lake.

The lower level is light-filled and spacious with a wall of windows, opening up to a patio overlooking the lake. An open living room / dining space with a TV. Kitchen, bedroom with a queen bed, full bathroom, and a dry sauna make for a wonderful addition to the main space.

The outdoor garden & lakefront: A perfect setting in all seasons. Swimming, kayaking, and fishing in the summer months, you'll find the setting heavenly on our peaceful lake. Or hike the many trails in the area. In the winter, cross-country skiing, skating, and snowshoeing, while passing by the ice fishing houses that take up residence on the lake, it's a dream. You'll find two kayaks, life jackets and lots of space for lounging by the lake or reading in the garden. No motor boats allowed.

Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner on the garden patio. Our Weber gas grill allows for preparing meals for the entire family, while enjoying the sunset on Silver Lake. Evenings chatting around the fire pit, a perfect way to end the day.

The house is perfect for group activities and also provides many private nooks.

Simple pleasures. Simply lovely.
