Cabin is a few steps from a spring-fed 3/4 acre private pond. The
pond is a great place to enjoy the sun on a hot day, go for an afternoon
swim or do some recreational, catch and return fishing. A
rowboat is provided. The grassy banks of the pond provide
safe and easy entry into the water for young children and a lovely
screened gazebo graces the far shore. The pond is shared by the
Cole House, but otherwise is private.
