Balsam Lake is an ideal destination for those who want to get away from the city yet not be too far from home. It makes for a great spring and fall weekend destination as well as the perfect spot for a summer week in the sun. Plenty of lawn and deck space surrounds this spacious house which makes it fun for all ages. From ball games to evenings around the campfire; al fresco meals to enjoying a quiet read in the morning there's room for everyone. And inside it's just the same. Bedrooms and a bathroom on both levels offer plenty of space for two families to enjoy time together, yet still have their own privacy. Each floor has a kitchen, living area with fireplace and wall-mounted TV as well as sliding doors to a deck. To complete the package there's a large sauna and steam room as well. The upper deck is where you'll find the BBQ, patio table and plenty of seating for everyone, and being right next to the kitchen, is convenient for the BBQ chef. The lower sitting area boasts a large hot tub, is more shaded and is right next to the vines – you can even pick your own grapes in the late summer! The Vines has shared waterfront with a few other cottages but you still have your own dock to moor your boat and it's a short stroll to take your glass of wine to the dock and enjoy the sunset. The lake is beautifully clear and weed-free and is great for swimming. It is shallow at the shoreline gradually deepening and is around 3 ft at the end of the dock. The lake bed has hard sand and large stones so water-shoes are essential. If you bring your own boat there is a boat launch and mooring right at the waterfront.
