The bathroom has a shower but there is an outdoor shower as well for sandy children. Children seem to prefer this. There is a deck across the front of the cottage with a table, chairs and an umbrella. There is also a sitting area with a crank-out awning. The morning offers sun on the deck and by afternoon it is shaded. There is a picnic table with umbrella if you prefer to eat down by the water. The large dock has 2 lounge chairs and other chairs, and is a great place to sit and watch the children play on the beach. The sandy beach is right there so your children are always in sight. The fire pit is also down by the water. You can often hear the loon calls as you sit there.
