Overview

Photos and Description of the Battle Lake vacation cabin rental

Rustic, renovated-2 bedrooms, Great room (2 beds), sun room, new bathroom

A peaceful and picturesque retreat awaits you at the West Wing on Blanche. We are on the north shore and enjoy southern exposure overlooking the pristine waters of Lake Blanche. Across these waters you will find undeveloped shorelines and secluded sandy beaches in the wilderness environment bordering Glendalough State Park. This peaceful shoreline is located on some of the most remote parts of the park. It's a wonderful, inspiring place to beachcomb, kayak or just kick back at the water’s edge. You can relax, watch eagles fly overhead, see fish jumping, catch a glimpse of a deer coming down for a cool drink, enjoy the sweet smell of honeysuckle and listen to loons sing out to each other as the sunset colors fill the sky. The West Wing on Blanche is the perfect place to slow life’s pace while you reconnect with yourself, loved ones or enjoy a rejuvenating couple’s get away.

The West Wing on Blanche is committed to providing a wholesome, mellow environment that leaves guests with a memorable experience. The 'West Wing' is on the west side of a large lakeside retreat which spans three lake lots and is closed off from the other side; much like a beautiful twin-home at the lake. The other side is not available for rent which further enhances your experience and sense of privacy during your stay. The West Wing does not lend itself to a resort-type environment with rental cabins and constant turnover of strangers all around. Crowds of visitors, loud parties or other disruptive activities that interfere with the tranquil experience the West Wing on Blanche was created for are not allowed. These high standards, maximum of six guests (four of which may be adults-renters/visitors combined), the rustic ambiance of our accommodations and all the beauty the West Wing offers lends itself to an elite level vacation experience at a very affordable price.

Our lake country retreat overlooks the lake and has been newly renovated while holding on to it's rustic charm of bygone years. The West Wing has a fully equipped kitchen with new appliances, furnishings and plenty of modern amenities to enhance your stay.

The West Wing is a rustic setting that has maintained the lake cabin feel with style and modern ameneties. We have a large open floor plan for the living area, dining and kitchen. The great room area also has two very comortable fold-out futons. Step up into the sunroom overlooking the lake. From there you enter the master suite which is finished off in natural colors, wood, and rustic decor.

We have a maximum limit of 6 guests (four of which may be adults-renters/visitors combined) at the West Wing at any given time. Though some resorts have higher limits, often with less square footage, we wish to provide an elite style stay at an affordable price for people that wish to avoid the crowds and relax in style. It is for this reason that we provide a mellow place free of crowds, loud parties and groups of non-guests who come and go. So kick back and enjoy your stay!

You'll instantly feel relaxed at the West Wing in our clean, comfortable lake home setting. We provide bath towels, sheets, blankets, pillows, utensils, dishes, pots and pans — all the amenities you need for a relaxing retreat.

Notes:
Lake Blanche is unlike any other lake in the heart of lakes country. Many of the surrounding lakes are nice but Lake Blanche is very special in many ways. We are the first lake down stream from Glendalough State Park. Our water comes from the waters that have been protected in the park for many years. Lake Blanche also is very undeveloped as most of the south shore is remote park lands and an enchanting place to beach comb and soak up the sun. The area was also home to Native Americans and remains home to many treasures from the past (you might find an arrowhead when you're beach-combing). The wildlife, history (American presidents have vacationed in the park), and beauty that surrounds Lake Blanche is beyond words. Our pristine waters, rich history, natural environment, sandy shorelines, lake bottom, and comfort of the West Wing will undoubtedly make you feel 'presidential' in a laid back sort of way!
