The lower level has a large guest bedroom with lake and mountain views, full bathroom, and a second guest bedroom which is currently being used as a den. Take the path just out the door on the lower level and follow it to a grassed sitting area with magnificent lake views, where you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee and catch the sun rise over the high peaks or have a late afternoon cocktail and watch the bass break the lake’s surface.

Pristine grounds, the home is beautifully landscaped with natural screening to provide lots of privacy! Follow the stairs down to the private dock and embark on a day of lake activities.  Also included in this offering is an additional dockable lake front lot. Enjoy summer days on the lake swimming, fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing, boating and water skiing.
