With the log cabin and two apartments, you're looking at a total of 2,452 heated sf living space being offered. The appliances are included, comprising of three refrigerators, two pairs of washer/dryers, even a brand new stainless range. Both apartments have an excellent rental history.

The charming apartment in the lower level can be accessed using a separate driveway and keypad entrance. It includes features like a large screened porch, it's own washer & dryer, a full-sized refrigerator, a walk-in closet, and it's not only heated and cooled by the main central unit, additional heat and a/c has been installed to maximize individual comfort. Considerable funds were used to insulate between the upper and lower level of the cabin, providing exceptional peace & quiet for both residents.

Above the large two-car garage, this apartment may be even more charming with it's interior finishes of log siding and the well-lit living area. "Mini-splits" efficiently heat and cool the space, and the washer and dryer units are easily available, sitting below in the garage. Plus, you've probably never seen so much closet space in an apartment! Built three years ago, this unit was initially used as a corporate rental.

The log cabin features a wrap-around screened porch and deck with pleasing views, greatly enhancing your living space in this four season climate. You might choose to step inside to a cheery fire during the colder months, a beautiful accent with it's stacked-stone - that is, when you are not out in the hot tub or sitting around the fire pit. During the summer months and in-between, you'll probably take advantage of the gazebo, offering a beautiful spot in the private garden with shade and retractable screens.

Inside, up in the loft is where you'll find the primary bedroom, with an en suite and walk-in closet, adjacent to the large, extra living space, while the bedroom on the main floor is large enough to use as a primary if desired. In the kitchen, the stainless range was installed in Jan 2023, and the stainless refrigerator is less than five months old. Also in the kitchen you'll find expansive granite counter tops, an undermount sink, and the door leading to the basement. The door has an optional insulation panel to further reduce any potential noise between the two living areas.

There's dedicated room to park an RV off the gravel drive, and you'll find the 22'x28' garage has plenty of room for storage, vehicles, w&d, plus it's plumbed for a sink if you care to add one. The log cabin was built by Lakeside Builders in 2006, on a Superior Wall foundation. The septic system was upgraded to a four-bedroom system (rated for eight adults, full time) in 2019, and the a/c & heat pump was replaced in 2015. A termite bond and quarterly exterior carpenter bee treatments assures you of pest-free accommodations. Bonus: An electrical switching system has been installed for a back-up generator (existing propane generator does not convey).
