Located on the popular all-sports Horseshoe Lake, the Little Blue Bungalow is completely remodeled, sleeping 5 in 2 bedrooms and hosts 1 bathroom. With a brand new 24ft. private dock, you are able to bring your water vessels and dock them in view. And no worries trying to find a public launch, a private boat launch is just steps away. However, the property does come with 2 kayaks and a swimming raft! Although this property is located on Horseshoe Lake, you can access all 5 connecting lakes via waterway with a flat boat, canoe, or kayak, make a days adventure for boaters! Having a 3-seasoned screened-in porch with furniture allows you to enjoy the view in comfort. This home wouldn't be complete without a fire pit, charcoal grill, and picnic table to embrace. In addition, the Little Blue Bungalow comes with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, water toys, board games, books, Wi-Fi, and a smart TV including Netflix and Hulu. Also, ATVs, and pets are allowed on property, so get a few friends together to enjoy this vacation rental! When it comes to suitability for multi-generational families, the area inside the cabin is absolutely ideal since it is a ranch setting, with just a few steps to reach the door facing the driveway. Still, if you want to walk down to the water's edge/ dock there is a significant incline. While there are small steps leading down to the water, there is NOT a railing. Please use caution. This walkway isn't suitable for anyone with balance concerns. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS A/C: There is an AC unit by the Master bedroom which circulates nicely throughout the home. In addition, there are also portable fans throughout the home. ATV's: Allowed! Bathrooms: There is a ¾ bathroom, which has a walk-in shower, toilet and sink (no bathtub) Beach: 75 foot lake front. You can swim into the lake right from the property. Bedroom Configuration: Master Bedroom = 1 Queen bed 2nd Bedroom = 1 Full bed with Bunk (sleeping 3) Boats: 2 kayaks are provided! A swimming raft is available for your use! Basic life-jackets are also provided Cable/Satellite TVs: a smart TV including Netflix and Hulu Cell phone service: Pretty good!

Just let us know which bed you will be using with them, and we'll make sure it is ready for your sheets when you arrive. Plus, if the pet hair starts to build, we do ask that you please run the vacuum. Generally, dogs love the water and places to explore. Pet food does tend to attract mice, so vigilance is needed.
