The Lakeside Cottage is a luxe log residence snuggled — because the identify implies — beside the lake. Inside, you’ve bought a sprawling front room, eating space with a stone fire, and king-size mattress within the grasp; outdoors, you’ve bought a blue stone patio and rowboat by the dock to paddle round in spring and summer time. The principle draw of this rental is you may have full entry to the grounds.
Cedar Lakes Property has twin lakes with row boats for fishing and paddling, a 20-person paddle board, and a large inflatable launch pad referred to as The Blob. There are paths to hike and bike; exhausting courts for tennis and basketball, and fields for volleyball, kickball, softball, and soccer; plus garden video games like bocce, horseshoes, cornhole, and ladder toss. Take a yoga class or watch a film beneath the celebrities for one thing extra leisurely. That is summer time camp for adults, and it’s wonderful.
