As I write this article, I am sitting on the deck of my lakefront house, listening to the breeze through the trees and am watching a boat go by, pulling kids behind on donuts. On a dock not too far away, a woman is sunning herself while watching her kids and dog play in the water. The sky is blue with a few billowy clouds and I can hear a motorboat in the distance. I love enjoying the look and feel of camping with all the luxuries of being at home. If I wanted to, I could go down to my very own dock and put my feet in my very own water. What a great feeling!
Two of the three bedrooms also have private decks. On the second floor, take in the sun setting from the private deck off the grand master suite loft. The third deck is on the first floor and has access to the back of the house.
If fishing is your thing, Devil’s lake is stocked with Rainbow Trout, Bluegill, and Coho Salmon. How about water sports? This is the ideal place to enjoy jet skiing, sailing, or simply taking a leisurely swim off your own dock.
An oversize garage allows you to park two cars and still have room for all your toys. Or, if you prefer, will allow for a large work bench for all your hobbies. In addition, there is a boat house on the lake itself.
