This is a peaceful, spring-fed mountaintop lake. While you can't necessarily see anyone while at the house, sound travels easily across the water, so they may be able to hear you if you are loud. This lake has a quiet ordinance after 9 PM - meaning no outdoor music, yelling or other disturbances. Guests must consider this before renting here, this is an amazing spot for a quiet retreat, but not for late night partying.

The lake is spring fed, it's clean, refreshing, and perfect for a swim, kayak, canoe, or paddleboard. The lake tends to warm up quicker (and stay warmer longer) than most, so spring and fall swims are common here. There is easy lake access from the gradually sloped beach. Relax on the deck with a morning coffee or sit lakeside in the Adirondack chairs. Unwind in the wood-fired steam sauna, fish off the dock, BBQ up dinner, then stargaze and share stories by the fire pit.

The hosts supply one canoe, one kayak, one stand up paddle board, and lake floats, as well as snowshoes for winter treks, and a list of fun year-round hikes, including a few local waterfalls which are beautiful. The hosts will also provide any recommendations for places to go, activities to do, and anything else glampers may need.
