Relax like never before in this open plan, custom built, architectural masterpiece. The wall of windows onto the pristine waters of Echo lake allows you to experience it's beauty from every room in the house. Immerse yourself in paradise, bond with nature and recharge in your own zen palace!
As described in Wood Design and Building magazine, this house is a "refuge, situated on the edge of land and water, [it] connects the active life and the contemplative life". This is a stunning custom built home (also featured in Wood - Architecture Now 2) that offers a view of the lake from every room in the house. It is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac which ensures not just privacy but complete peace and quite. The house is open plan which creates a good energy and flow throughout. The spacious kitchen contains everything you need for easy, convenient meal preparation and clean up. Dining can be at the kitchen island or, for a more formal experience at the dining table. The living room is geared around a view of the lake with a large sofa and several armchairs and ottomans for your comfort. A propane stove turns this open airy space into a cozy enclave on a cold night. The 42" TV can stream Roku channels (e.g Netflix and Amazon Prime Video) but there is no basic cable service. The bedrooms are simple but comfortable with a king bed, dressers and a closet being available in the master bedroom and a queen bed, dresser and office space (with large monitor and laser printer) being available in the second bedroom. The master bathroom consists of a deep jacuzzi tub with a hand held shower. A half bathroom which contains laundry facilities is situated next to the second bedroom. A deck stretches the entire length of the house, providing seating areas outside each bedroom and the living room. It also serves as an excellent place to perform your daily yoga routine so bring your mat! There is also a lower level patio for additional seating areas. On the deck there is a coffee table which you can easily transform into a fire pit when the weather is chilly. There is a BBQ for your use around the side of the house. The lake itself is a private, spring fed, non-motor lake. This results in a safe, quiet and little used lake that on many days will seem like it is yours alone. A kayak is available for your use but must be used in conjunction with a floatation vest (not provided). There are also multiple floatation beds and noodles available for use on the lake (you can find these in a storage bin on the deck). In the winter months, ice fishing is a popular pastime but you will need to bring your own equipment.

All areas of the house and yard will be available for guest use but the garage will be locked and unavailable. The lake can be accessed from the dock.
Please note there are steps from the driveway to the house which would not be suitable for people with mobility constraints.

I will be available to interact with guests via text or phone during their stay but I will not be in a convenient location to visit the property.
Otros aspectos destacables
This is a very quiet neighborhood and you are asked to respect that during your visit. If you are looking for a party lake and atmosphere there are probably other places in the vicinity that are more suitable for your vacation.
A cleaning fee of $100 will be applied to each booking. If additional cleaning is required as a result of smoking in the house an additional $500 cleaning fee will be applied.
A security deposit of $1000 will be applied to each booking.
Absolutely no smoking is permitted on the property, either inside OR outside the house.

Guests accept all risk associated with the use of the lake and the property and acknowledge that the owner is in no way responsible for their safety during the rental period.
There is no garbage pick up from the house. All garbage must be placed in the bin next to the garage at the end of the stay. It will be disposed of when the house is cleaned. No garbage bags can be left outside without being placed in the bin as this attracts bears and coyotes. I ask that guests be conscious of the need to recycle. Glass, plastic and cans can be placed in the recycling bin next to the garage at the end of your stay and there is a receptacle for paper and cardboard in the closet next to the front door.
