**This cottage is great for the winter enthusiast. It is accessible only by snowmobile in the winter months**

Look up! Strategically placed at the top of a large, tree-covered hill, the view from this cottage is nothing short of breathtaking. A vigorous climb up from the waterfront, is no tall statement that this cottage is at the height of what nature has to offer. This cottage not only offers a 55 foot water slide, great fishing, swimming and boating but also keeps you in shape with the “Hiker’s Haven” trail from the waterftont deck to the cottage. This climb is not for the faint of heart and can be ideal for those with ATVs and snowmobiles.  

This three-level cottage is canopied in pine cathedral ceilings. From the great five-sleeper loft on the upper level, the open-concept kitchen and dining room are visible. The authentic wood stove makes this living space warm and inviting and the floor-to-ceiling windows let in lots of natural light. On balmy summer days there is a nice breeze off the lake, and while there is no AC, fans help move the air along inside.

The kitchen has a dishwasher and everything else you need to make meal prep as breezy as the air off the lake. Put the kids to work chopping vegetables or shucking corn on one of the four bar stools at the raised counter. The two bedrooms on this level include a queen-sized bed in one and a bunk bed with single on top and double on bottom as well as a single bed in the other. There is also a four-piece bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub on this main level.

Located off of the kitchen is a large living room that incorporates a poker table, pinball machine and seating area with a large flat screen television equipped with a surround sound system and enjoy 300,000 movies, 200,000 TV Shows & global live sports.. The view from the beautiful floor to ceiling windows is breathtaking for sure. One might feel like a bird perched high above all civilization, away from the hustle and bustle of the city life; a very peaceful and relaxing feeling is offered during your stay at this treetop cottage.

The lower level games room is the perfect spot for some friendly competition. Lose track of time in a couple of games of pool and ping pong, or try your hand at foosball, darts, and indoor putting. Pop open a board game and enjoy a cold drink from the bar or mini fridge. Two more bedrooms complete this level. Both bedrooms have queen beds with private walk-outs to the hillside stairs that lead to the waterfront. 

It’s down those hillside stairs to the waterfront where the outdoor enthusiasts can find what they really came for, a diving board and a 55′ water slide with running water that will thrill the kid-at-heart. You can also jump off the dock or use the swimming ladder. For the breathe-easy type, a relaxing afternoon on the deck or a lazy paddle around the lake in the canoe, paddleboat, or one of the two kayaks just might do the trick. Sit at the picnic table and enjoy a hot-off-the-grill meal from one of the barbeques or head on over to the fire pit for s’more ooey-gooey desserts. Chill in the eight-seater hot tub before heading back into the cottage for a quiet night.

Don’t want to drop your anchor solely in beautiful Lake Vernon? Not to worry, the adjoining lakes surrounding Huntsville and Port Sydney make your boating, fishing, swimming, and exploring possibilities almost endless. So what are you waiting for? Adventure calls take on your mountain!
