Free Firewood, Peek-a-boo View of Hamlin Lake. King bed, central AC.

2 night minimum this Fall.
Free firewood for the firepit!

Looking for an old time lakeview cottage? I am a charming 80+ year old cottage. I still have some of my original hardwood floors, and knotty pine wainscoting. My 2 original bedrooms are small, but they work for sleeping. The master (3 bedrooms total) was added on many years ago, and has one of those king beds to stretch out in. Did you know that king beds did not even exist when I was built! Updates have been made over the years, so you can enjoy the comfort of my central heat and air. Or like our granny's did, open the windows and enjoy the fresh air. While all my beds are fairly new, I still have granny's couch and love seat from the late 50's. Hope you like a patterned lime green :) But don't worry, my TV and electric fireplace are only a few years old.

You will stay with me because you want more than a cabin, but less than the fancy condo's downtown. I have a great firepit out back with a supply of firewood for your enjoyment. The firepit can double as a wood grilling option, or you can use the charcoal grill. I also have an wonderful covered patio with party lights and a radio. The local station plays a lot of oldies.. I have real comfy cushioned chairs on the patio. Two of the cushioned chairs even rock - just like someone's granny used to. Check out my indoor and outdoor games. Your stay with me should be for making memories.

You can see Hamlin Lake from my front porch. The view is a peek-a-boo view because of all the trees, but none the less, the sunset emits a nice orange glow between the trees and makes me smile. You are only a 2 min walk to Hamlin Lake's South Bayou Park & boat ramp. The park includes a small play ground for the kiddos. Bring your kayaks, paddle boards or boat and use the public launch at the South Bayou park. This park has free parking and launching (no super large boats at this launch, but it will work for most ski and fishing boats). You can even get ice cream and bait at the Waterside Resort store across the street from the park.

Location, location, location. There are beaches, shopping, 2 lighthouses, the downtown area, and the State Park - all within a10 minute drive. The 2nd lighthouse does require about a 45 minute walk to reach it.

I should have most everything your need for your stay. My lovely features include central heat/air, washer/dryer, nice size kitchen with coffee/waffle sideboard fully stocked for morning coffee and waffles. Fully stocked kitchen with stove, full size refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, blender, waffle maker, crock pot, baking dishes, pots, pans, dishes - it's all there. Includes some pantry staples such as coffee, sugar, creamer, waffle mix, syrup, salt, pepper, cinnamon, steak seasoning, and a few others.

I can sleep up to 7. The master has a King bed. Bedroom 2 has a bunk with a double (full) bed on the bottom and a single (twin) bed on the top. Bedroom 3 is set up with 2 extra long twin beds which can easily sleep teens or adults. Linens are supplied for all the beds. I currently only have one bath. Only mansions had more than one bath back in the 1930's when I was built. You will have a set of towels for each guest, soaps, and shampoo.

Roku Channels, Netflix, Hulu, Weather Nation, and many other streaming channels on the TV. TV's were invented before I was built, but did not become popular until more than a decade later.

I am a clean older home with many updates. Located in a quiet resort neighborhood. So please enjoy yourself, but no large gatherings or loud parties. Weekly rentals are Saturday to Saturday during peak summer months (mid June thru August). 2 night minimum this fall. This property offers easy convenient self check-in.

** Allergies? I am an older home and moth balls have been used in my past. If you suffer allergies, I may not be the right fit for you. :(

Easily park 4 vehicles in the driveway (garage not included in rental).

Location, location, location. This place has it. Pick me! Pick me!
