Welcome to this lovely 800 sq. ft. 3 bedroom cottage located on tranquil Skeleton Lake, just a short drive from the quaint village of Rosseau. The owner’s family have been on the lake since 1924 in various other locations and when they purchased the cottage in 2011 they put their own personal touches and memorabilia in this 50 year old cottage that was renovated in 2004 by the previous owners.
They loved the balance of the wooded area in the back of the cottage and the openness of the lake facing front allowing the breezes to come through and make anywhere you sat on the property pleasant.
The interior of the cottage is well laid out with the open concept kitchen/dining/living area all facing out to the lake with beautiful tree top lake views and the three bedrooms are tucked into the back area of the cottage lending to a cool and restful night’s sleep.
There is a walkout from the living room through glass sliding doors to the spacious deck, a great spot to enjoy early morning coffee and BBQ meals while taking in the breathe-taking views.
With a southern exposure, you will be privy to sun all day long. Sun lovers have the choice of two decks and a dock to basque in the sun while taking in fantastic wide open views of the lake and then retreating to the shaded fire pit area in the back to cool off. From the cottage deck there are stairs down to a good sized lake side deck and then more stairs take you down to the dock and 50 feet of natural rocky shoreline. The rocks at the front are brachia that was formed when the meteor hit millions of years ago. It’s about 3 feet deep at the end of the dock, ideal for sliding into the refreshing water when it gets too hot. Fishing is great from the dock as well with bass, trout and pickerel being the most common catches.
Take the paddle board out in the morning when the lake is calmest and explore the lake in the late afternoon with the canoe or kayak before settling back at the fire pit as dusk welcomes a blanket of stars and peace and quiet prevail!
