We want you to be our guest! If we have availability let us know what you can afford to pay and we'll try to help you plan a wonderful and affordable vacation! IMPORTANT: Sweetheart is heated primarily by a wood stove. It is not insulated and can get chilly in the late Fall season. If you do not feel comfortable with a wood stove (it may have to be stoked throughout the night) then this may not be the house for you. If you're up for a great price, 'roughing it' in the cooler weather, this is definitely the house for you! As important- Sweetheart is a rustic cottage. The floors are uneven, you may see a mouse, you probably will see a spider. The bedrooms are small. The wall between the two bedrooms does not go all the way to the ceiling. It is best for families or very good friend...We want you to be our guest!

It is best for families or very good friends. It is clean. comfortable, affordable and fun and we love it! Sweetheart is full of love and laughter, kitschy and wonky, an excellent place to bond with your family and friends- a wonderful place to experience beauty and peace. We would love to share with you. 'Sweetheart' is a cheerful three-season vacation home just steps away from a private beach shared with neighbors on beautiful East Caroga Lake. The talented owners have turned 'Sweetheart' into a relaxed, informal retreat with a focus on outdoor living. The spacious, level double lot, with its lovely backdrop of mixed woodland, features a hot outdoor shower, 6 person hot tub, picnic table, and a comfortable living area circling a stone fire pit. The open living area features a large living room and an eat-in kitchen. The cathedral ceiling is hung with light strands and vintage colored-glass globe chandeliers for an amber glow . A brick fireplace with wood stove insert centers one wall. The wood stove showcases beautiful fires and efficiently heats the camp on chilly evenings. Entertainment options include TV (no cable), DVD and VCR and board games. Please note that the televisions are 'old school' and will not be compatible with a fire stick,etc. High-speed wifi internet access is provided for your laptop computer- your best bet for watching current shows and movies, etc The kitchen has large, charmingly old-fashioned 'camp' windows that swing open on top-hinges to hook onto the rafters above and white vintage cabinetry. The fully-equipped eat-in kitchen includes refrigerator, fabulous vintage electric range with 'crock pot' slow-cooker insert, enameled sink with built-in drainboard, microwave, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker. A large mirror on the range wall reflects beautiful green light from the kitchen's two walls of windows. The small master bedroom features the rustic glamour of a queen-size canopy bed hand-crafted by the Amish from twigs and branches painted a dreamy white and swathed in little white string lights. Wall hooks and a vintage painted dresser are tucked into the room for clothes storage. Two windows offer circulation of cooling lake breezes. The small second bedroom features a trundle bed that can be pulled out into a king size bed. A window looks out across lawn to lovely evergreen trees. A dresser and wall hooks provide clothes storage. A full sleeper-sofa on the sun porch allows 'Sweetheart' to accommodate a total of six guests. The beds are outfitted with attractive spreads, blankets, and pillows. Guests provide their own linens: sheets, pillowcases, and towels. The enclosed sun porch, with three walls of multi-paned glass and screened windows that are curtained for privacy, is an ideal den or third bedroom. An ivory-enameled Jotul free-standing gas fireplace keeps 'Sweetheart' cozy in cool weather. Next to the bedrooms is a full bath with toilet, console sink, and small shower. One wall of the bathroom serves as a graffiti guest book. An outdoor hot shower and hot tub (along with a dip in the lake!) provide summer's best bathing experiences. Outside features a gas grill and a large picnic table whose comfortable benches have backs to them and seat six easily. Blue stone stepping stones set in a pebble patio lead to the six-person jetted spa offering relaxation under the stars. Next to the spa is an enclosed outdoor shower. A short walk across the quiet road around East Caroga Lake brings you to the sandy, protected waterfront shared with a handful of neighbors. In addition to offering great swimming, you may rent kayaks or canoes to launch from here for fishing and exploring East Caroga Lake's many coves and inlets. A channel leads to West Caroga Lake, allowing boaters to paddle to the village center for a meal. More

I wish that the weather was better for you Jeanne- I felt so bad!!! Maybe you could visit one of our other "cushier" homes some day although I don't think any of them are particularly handicap friendly, unfortunately. Take care and thank you :)

We were impressed with the beach and the privacy. We were very disappointed that the hot tub was out of commission. We asked for some of our money back, which was a flat NO! We couldn't figure out the TV or the games. The fire...More

Carrie, I'm sorry you were disappointed about the hot tub- the previous guests had burned out the pump and ruined the circuit board so we had to wait for the part. I'm sure I communicated with you and you had said that everything else was...More

So glad you had fun! The Atari does work but it is a bit touchy, we could have helped you! Although we don't advertise the record player, it is fun to use- however, people are constantly breaking the needle :( Hope you can visit again!
