We refer to the upstairs bedrooms as the "Eagle's Nest" and it's a perfect hangout for kids of all ages. They will love having their own space to relax, watch movies, or play video games (Nintendo Gamecube and games provided or bring your own). The Eagle's Nest also has two TVs with steaming services. Other amenities include a large shower, 4 high definition TVs with Netflix, Sling TV, BluRay player, free wifi, brand new washer & dryer, and dishwasher.

The bathroom has a nice size shower with soap and shampoo dispensers and a Japanese-style bidet seat (a luxury discovered during Ron's frequent visits to Asia). It includes a heated seat and washing and drying features, you will want your own after you try it!

Outside you will find a brand new front deck as well as a covered patio in the back. Both offer great views of the park and lake and has a Bluetooth audio system so you can play music from your phone or tablet. This patio also has a projector for outdoor movies on the 6' pull down screen! There is a charcoal grill (charcoal provided), firepit, and plenty of outdoor seating for family and friends.
