Treetops Cottage is 520 sq. ft. The cottage is a non-smoking and no pet for two people with a bedroom with a queen bed, a small dining room, living room with Dish TV, kitchenette, bathroom with tiled shower, and a large screened porch overlooking the lake. Treetops Cottage is perched on the edge of the bank extending out into the treetops. The cottage has four ceiling fans for cooling, and two wall heaters for cool mornings.
This is our private estate, not a resort, so it is quiet and peaceful, ideal for a couple who enjoy reading, writing (the owner is an author), and the out-of-doors.The boat launch is one mile away, and Pelican Lake has excellent fishing for walleye and bass. There is no dock on the property. The shallow swimming area is soft sand below the cottage. Bring your guitar or banjo and serenade the night fisherman trolling for walleyes or participate in the local open mic night at a local arts center.

We live on the property during the summer and enjoy gardening, fishing, and playing cards. We have great free dock fishing within 2 miles of our property where you will catch northern pike and bluegills galore. We have a campfire circle overlooking the lake plus adirondack chairs and a log swing for your pleasure enjoying the marvelous view . Because we are located on the north shore, we have sun most of the day (the cottages are under large oak trees), the breeze usually blows toward our shore, and thus, we have few mosquitoes. The Ashby Senior Center plays whist every Friday afternoon. Regular bingo is available nearby. We often catch the casino bus for a nominal fee and travel with friends for a great time together. Consider yourself invited to all events!
No pets nor smoking on the property.
My wife and I are retired teachers from International Schools. We love to travel, play bridge, fish, and ski in the winter. We especially enjoy meeting the public. When you stay with us, you become part of the family when we have campfires, projects, or take you fishing. We also provide information on the local activities, best fishing and hiking areas, and funky little restaurants. We are not a resort, but a small family estate on a beautiful lake where we rent out the cottage when our children are not with us.
