    Default Off the beaten path

    A dramatic departure from your typical cabin on the lake, this unique retreat adds shades of black to a tiny island awash with local color.

    not insulated, looks hot as hell in the summer. Looks like any number of cheap cottages made out of old garage doors people throw up, just with modern furniture

    How funny are those two sitting on their slab of concrete looking at their fireplace tower which is blocking the view of the lake.

    i love the exterior, i love the interior, i ADORE the property. the only thing i think i'd change are those yucky green armchairs by the outdoor fireplace. and, i'd put in a garden...i don't see a garden. other than those small changes, i'm in love with this place.

    It's a blight, a cancer, on the beautiful landscape. I bet the locals are pissed. I know I would be. Pity the people who have a view of that unimaginative monstrosity.

    I don't like the exterior at all, it looks cheap and thrown together. It's a shame since the property is in such a beautiful place. The inside is nothing special either. If i were staying there most of my time would be spent down on the dock.

    Happy trails to you...until we meet again.
    I love & miss you Dad.
