Come see this historic lakefront camp in person to experience its nostalgic charm and serene location, then explore its possibilities! Have you been yearning to establish a lakeside family compound? How about an investment property for short-term rentals? Or a great artist or health retreat? You don’t need to just imagine any more! Built in the 1920s, the lodge and 2 cottages retain their original charm, yet have been updated to last another 100+ years. Step back in time to the original camp's expansive kitchen with original built-ins, a vaulted ceiling, a cook's stove, and gleaming Douglas fir floors that extend throughout the home. Off the kitchen is a 1/2 bath with clawfoot tub and a separate laundry room. The great room has vaulted ceilings, windows with western views of the lake, and a restored fireplace. Retreat to the screened porch that runs the full length of the house. Down a hallway are 3 bedrooms and 3/4 bath with insulation and heat to extend the season. Silver cottage is a studio with 3/4 bath and Toppel cottage has 2 bedrooms and 1/2 bath. Gradual stairs bring you to your 232' of direct lakefront. There’s also common land and an additional 136' of gradual shore just up the road. Play lawn games, swim, and boat, then retreat indoors to play pool, board games, and cards while a fire crackles in your great room. This historic and charming property comes furnished with original artifacts from the camp. Years of summer dreams are waiting here!
