I built the Lake House to be my retirement home, but since I'm not ready to retire, I offer it for rent to anyone wanting a getaway not far away. Since it will my house one day, I put a lot of things in it that I like! It's easy to take care of, quiet, and the kitchen is a gourmet's dream.
I live nearby (I own the Iron Mountain Inn B&B also) so if you have questions or any problems I'm always available to help. And if you want suggestions for things to do or places to eat, there is a binder which gives lots of information, too.
