The deck is 12' wide across the entire front of the Lodge and includes a picnic table and chairs and a new gas grill. The back half of the Lodge contains a big bathroom, and 2 big bedrooms. One bedroom overlooks the lake, is very private and contains one double bed, a big mirrored dresser and matching sitting bench. The second bedroom contains a set of double bed bunks and a set of single bed bunks. The living room couch also folds out to provide a double bed. The maximum number of guests is limited to six people. The private lake provides swimming, boating and good panfishing with an occasional bass, pike or walleye. This lake is home to beaver, otter, loons, songbirds and nearby nesting bald eagles. Deer, bear and grouse are abundant and a moose occasionally visits the lake.
