This Highland Annex is situated at the east end (head) of 4th Lake with a 60 foot private beach. There is a glider on the beach that is an ideal perch for viewing spectacular sunsets down the length of the lake with your evening glass of wine, or for viewing rolling mists as they pull off the lake while sipping your sunrise cup of coffee. The property is secluded by deep woods, but it is just a 5 minute walk into downtown Inlet.

The cottage was built around 1900, originally as a boat house. It was pulled back from the beach in the 1930's and refurbished as a cottage with fairly large rooms. The cottage was used to house staff for the Wood Hotel, which is a short walk away down a wooded path. Much of the furniture is original to the period and many furnishings actually came from the original hotel. The cottage sleeps 10 people in 5 bedrooms. The largest bedroom is downstairs, which is perfect for an elderly person or a family with an infant. There is a futon in the great room and two additional cots. The cottage has two full baths, both downstairs; one with a shower, the other with a tub and shower. The kitchen is a large, eat-in kitchen and is stocked with dishes, glassware, pots, and pans. The great room is a dining room/living room combination with a table that seats 8-10. There is a nice front porch facing the beach and a rolling lawn down to the beach. There is also a picnic table on the lawn, a gas grill out back, and a fire pit near the beach. There is space to beach canoes and kayaks. This summer camp is fairly simple or "rustic" as we say. Some of the windows still have straw marks in the glass. There is no dishwasher, no garbage disposal, no washing machine, no dryer, no TV, and no dock. The cottage is well stocked with board games and books. The cottage does have WiFi.



$3,000 per week. The camp is available from late June until late September. The term of the rental is from Saturday to Saturday. The balance of the rent (half) is due June 1st.

CANCELLATION POLICY: The half payment of the rental is not refundable should you cancel your reservation. Your security deposit will be refunded if you need to cancel your reservation. If we do not receive the balance of your rental payment by June 1st, we will cancel your reservation, and you will forfeit your half payment of the rent. Please meet these dates as there are no exceptions to this policy.

If the week you want is not available, please contact me to be put on my wait list. I do occasionally get cancellations. (skstuven@gmail.com)
