There are three bedrooms with windows. The master bedroom features a king bed, TV, and a large lake view window. There is a queen bed in the second bedroom and the kids will love the two sets of bunk beds in the third bedroom. The bathroom is a four piece with tub/shower, toilet, and a double sink vanity.

The spacious side yard is level with lots of room for outdoor games and there is a firepit where you can gather for a campfire in the evening and share stories while roasting marshmallows. A set of stone steps takes you down to the waterfront (200 foot frontage) and a good sized sand beach area and a small dock. The shoreline is mostly natural vegetation with a sand/mud entry area. The water depth increases to about 5 feet at the end of the dock and up to 15 feet farther out. You can enjoy a morning cup of coffee on the dock, or spend some of your day on the beach catching some sun or relaxing with a good book and a great view. If you prefer, take a jump into the water for a swim or bring your fishing rods and try your hand at fishing from the dock. If you have your own boat you can explore Fox Lake.
