Other Things to NoteOur house is not very easy to locate, which offers you and us wonderful seclusion. The road is typically rural: gravel and dirt and washboard. But, hey, this lends itself to the privacy not available in many places. Don't hesitate to call if you're having any trouble finding us. We have a reflective A on our set of mailboxes if you're coming from Wampler's Lake Highway to Lawrence. Turn into the gravel drive when u see the A and farther down , u will see another A on a deer picture, indicating that you're on the correct driveway. The driveway seems a bit foreboding when you first enter it, but you will soon realize it leads to a lovely area and very private, beautiful home. Do drive slowly as another car can approach. There r seldom two cars at the same time, but it is best to b cautious. Parking signs are located in the front, as well as the back of the house. If you park in front, you may enter from the front, but be aware there will be stairs to climb. The log bunk bed bedroom has a set of log bunk beds with a FULL on the bottom and Single on top. The beds will accommodate up to THREE guests, ONLY. We love children, but sadly our Sophie is a rescue, who was abused by children, so she is very wary of children, even those who simply want to gently pet her. Too avoid a concern for your child and possible nipping, we can only allow ages 13 and up. We are very sorry we cannot accommodate younger children. The stairway to the bunk bed room is an open concept, i.e no risers, just steps. So, if you have a small dog, you may want to carry him/ her, although our own dogs have no problems since we keep their pads fur free. IMPORTANT: As of Sept 1st, we need to let u know that goose hunters may be active on a portion of our lake on Sat mornings and possibly Sun. This is not a given, but rather a possibility. If they do so, they may begin as the fog lifts, ending in a couple of hours. We have not heard them ever on Sundays or during the week, but - of course- we can't guarantee their schedule. Please be all right with this possibility if you book with us in Sept- Oct. Although fall brings the goose hunters in the morning, fall likewise means a cozy, lovely campfire on the beach in the evening with the cool night breeze. It is the perfect way to distress and unwind with your fav beverage. In addition, the vista of fall color during the day supersedes this possibility. If you would like a campfire, (weather permitting), please let us know asap. If you would also like to have complimentary marshmellows, please tell us prior to arrival.
