The Fisherman’s can be easily described with a single word: character. From the only overhanging porch in the area, to the built-in bunk beds overlooking the fireplace, The Fisherman’s is truly unique. One trait that makes the Fisherman's a truly one-of-a-kind cottage is the porch that overhangs Thunder Lake. It's the only one like it in the entire area, and it's perfect for wetting a line or just watching the fish swim by. Many of our guests have told stories about the musky that swim by throughout the day!
Our kitchen comes fully equipped with everything you will need during your stay with us. Spacious windows and three skylights provide a bright and relaxing atmosphere, perfect for planning the day's activities.The Fisherman's has a full bath that includes a Jacuzzi tub. There is nothing like relaxing in the tub and looking at the starts through the skylight to take away the aches and pains from the day's adventures.
The living room is spacious and centered around a beautiful open-faced fireplace that is perfect for warming up toasting a marshmallow and retelling the days stories. There are also two large picture windows in the living room that offer a terrific view of Thunder Lake.
Another very unique aspect about the Fisherman's are the bunks that overlook the fireplace. These are perfect for kids and adults, too. There is also access from the bunks to each bedroom by way of two built in doors on the backside of the bunks!
The cottage can accommodate six people. The bunks can sleep two, along with two bedrooms. One bedroom has a full-size bed, the other room has two twin beds.
