Dockhouse at sunset...
The enormous fireplace in the Great Room is plenty cozy
for intimate conversation. It boasts thirty-foot cedar ceilings
with well-supported trusses. The six double doors across from each
other allow cool breezes to cool your evening.
Chef's Kitchen is part of the Great Room experience, allowing the chef
to prepare gourmet meals and enjoy conversation with his/her company at
the same time. The granite countertops and stainless steel sinks
and appliances are a chef's paradise. A large Pantry is located
off the back of the Kitchen. The dining area sits between the
Kitchen and Great Room.
The Master Bedroom is private from the main home with a
beautiful hot tub in the connecting Breezeway. It is perfect for
those romantic nights! You can choose to watch the sunset
on the lake or spend your evening with a fire in the fireplace.
