Holiday Rental House
As a child, our family bought a cottage in the Irish Hills - I was blessed with summers spent swimming, fishing, campfires and filling my childhood with memories I still cherish. We bought this cottage to keep those memories alive in a time when it seems easy to forget how simple pure joy can be. Now, we are pleased to share that experience with you. Evans Lake is a private all-sports lake with a sandy bottom-making it a perfect place to unwind from your routine. Welcome to The Lake Affect. Our lake front cottage is located on the East side of Evans Lake in the Irish Hills. We are close to restaurants, wineries, golf courses, MIS and a few great little towns. Our place would work well for couples, a small family or group of friends, but is also cozy enough for an individual travel...As a child, our family bought a cottage in the Irish Hills - I was blessed with summers spent swimming, fishing, campfires and filling my childhood with memories I still cherish. We bought this cottage to keep those memories alive in a time when it seems easy to forget how simple pure joy can be. Now, we are pleased to share that experience with you. Evans Lake is a private all-sports lake with a sandy bottom-making it a perfect place to unwind from your routine. Welcome to The Lake Affect. Our lake front cottage is located on the East side of Evans Lake in the Irish Hills. We are close to restaurants, wineries, golf courses, MIS and a few great little towns. Our place would work well for couples, a small family or group of friends, but is also cozy enough for an individual traveler. OUR SPACE: Lake front: We have a large sandy beach to play in & beach toys to use. The area has 4 chairs and a table. There is also an umbrella to use if you need shade. In the grassy area, we have a small fire ring that you may use (wood not provided). Behind the home: All vehicles will be parked on the lot behind the home. There is enough space for multiple vehicles to fit. There are 20 natural stone steps that lead down to the house -please note- there is not a hand rail. We suggest unloading in the front of the home and then parking around back. Immediately behind the house is an open area for seating and grilling (we have a gas grill you can use). The cottage: There are steps and uneven surfaces to get into the home. There is not a heat source in the home -which is why we only rent it during the warm seasons. We have 2 room air conditioners (1 in the bedroom and 1 in the loft). The home has well water. Inside the home: Bedroom- Bunk bed that includes a queen bed on the bottom and a full bed on the top (use a ladder to climb to the top). There are drawers in the bottom of the bed to store clothing. There is also a locker unit in the room to store folded clothes & personal belongings. A pack n' play is available if requested. Loft-There are open-style wooden steps (with a railing on one side) up to the loft. The loft is about 5 1/2 feet at the peak and shorter on both sides. The loft has a queen size bed and a floor mattress (if needed). Kitchen- We have all you need. Fridge, stove, toaster, toaster oven, coffee maker, crock pot and all your cooking essentials. We suggest cooking outdoors on the large grill--because what goes better with a day at the lake than a grilled feast? Open areas- We have a dining table with 4 chairs -great for playing cards (and eating of course)! A couch with pull-out bed and 2 rocker/recliner chairs in the living room. There is no wifi or cable at the cottage - very much on purpose! We do have a TV with plenty of classic movies and board games for the rainy days. We encourage you to use your time at The Lake Affect to recharge YOUR batteries, not your phones. You'll have access to the entire home with the exception of the utility room and outdoor sheds. Boat and Jet ski will not be available for guests use. If you have any specific questions about our cottage, please ask.More
