The SpaceSilver Mining Lake Cottage is a cozy retreat set on a five acre private lake surrounded by nature. The cottage is perfect for a couples’ getaway, a family weekend, or a friends’ gathering with a flexible layout that will sleep up to six.
The main entry to the home is through the screened porch, equipped with its own radio/CD player, mini-fridge, and dining table for four.
The living room floor has recently been refinished in hardwood-style laminate. The sofa folds out into a full-size bed.
The kitchen and dining area are located centrally with a walk-in pantry. The dining table comfortably seats four. The kitchen is well equipped with full-size refrigerator, stove with oven, coffee pot, microwave, toaster, pots, pans, utensils, and dinnerware for six people, and additional kitchen supplies are available on request.
The master bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed and a twin daybed with trundle. The daybed and trundle can be placed together to make a full-size bed. The bedroom also has a private sitting area and a separate entrance.
The bathroom and laundry room with washer, dryer, and large utility sink are centrally located off the kitchen/dining area.
The casual, homey vibe of the cottage invites you to kick back and unwind. You won’t find anything fancy here, but you will find a friendly, clean, and comfortable space in a bucolic setting.
Use of the lake, just steps outside your door, includes the use of two kayaks, a paddle boat, two canoes, a john-boat, and fishing equipment. The lake was once a pay fishing lake and is stocked with catfish, bluegill, bass, and crappie. We ask that you only catch what you will eat during your stay. You are also welcome to swim in the clean, spring-fed lake and make use of the diving platform. There is a sandy beach area with lounge chairs and a fire pit with wood provided for a cozy campfire.
The cottage is located in a certified 32 acre wildlife habitat. Geese, deer, turkeys, squirrels, and other wildlife share the property and are often seen near the cottage.
