Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Cute little apartment, separate from main house, available for a quiet relaxing retreat. On hill overlooking Prairie Lake on our large wooded property. In the country, but only 5 mins from town.

The space
2 Bedrooms with full bath and full kitchen. Small living room with big couch and recliner chair. Deck with nice patio furniture to eat meals at. This is actually an above garage apartment, but since its entrance is at ground level in ‘back’ and has view of woods and lake…it feels like a cute little guest house / cabin!

Main bedroom has queen sized bed and large closet. Small 2nd bedroom has bunk beds with twin on top and larger full mattress below. (Could handle 3 children easily.)

Guest access

•Large Screen Sony LCD HD TV, (now with cable! Including NFL channel! ).

Other things to note
Misc: Mosquitoes are a possibility, so be prepared if its early summer or you’re going to venture into woods or near water. In our yard, however, it’s usually quite pleasant due to (I believe) our open yard, breeze off lake, and a well trained squad of dragonflies! Our road is a tree lined canopy gravel road. Nice quiet neighborhood walks are right at hand. Or walk to ‘Gods Country Store’ about ¼ to ½ mile away. We have a small dock on the water, but this is a shallow weedy bay – no sandy beach for kids. A small shallow boat could use the dock, but nothing too large.

Note that the walk down to the deck & dock by lake involves steep stairs. Very pretty; but could be difficult for anyone with limited mobility.

Currently no: A/C or Laundry…. .

Note: Tap is well water. Fresh and cold, perfectly safe/usable...but has some minerals in it. Is run thru water softener, though. If you don't like well water, you may want to pack extra bottled water to drink, or we can fill up some bottles from super-filter drinking water faucet we have in the house. A few days per year it can get warm in apt during the day. Using fan and windows helps a lot, and it always cools off nicely at night - but be aware there is no A/C.

We're an "empty nest" couple who still enjoy working, love outdoors & nature, get out traveling when possible, and are now living full time in our up north dream lake house. Remaining in our house are Dallas, the big mutt dog, and two Maine Coon cats - Benji and his kitten sidekick Cameo.
