Self’s Cottage is a private four season cottage perfect for your family vacation. Spacious and inviting, this cottage offers all the comforts of home including air conditioning for those hot, humid days and fireplaces to take the chill off those cool nights. The indoor dining area offers several views including the lake, or choose to dine outdoors on the deck. Whatever the weather or time of day, the sunroom offers a beautiful view of the waterfront away from the elements. If you have concerns about steps to the grounds and waterfront, there is a ramp from the main level, accessible from multiple doors with 3-4 steps onto gently sloping grounds. The playground is in full view of the patio and deck so you can sit back and relax while the children play. Have a game of foosball or air hockey in the family room. Spend time on the beach or on the lake – go for a paddle in the kayak provided for your use, or simply enjoy a refreshing dip in the lake. For evening relaxation, settle in at the fire pit and marvel at the night sky while taking in the night sounds of nature.
