Lakefront, privacy and romance at camp star… – homeaway electricity vocabulary

#

Camp Starlite sits right over the lake with 500 feet of private waterfront, a dock and private boathouse. The oversized windows capture the beauty of the natural surroundings, so the views are stunning, even at night. We turn on the fire, turn off the lights, and enjoy the reflection of the moon off the lake…just beautiful. The sight of the fog lifting in the morning is worth the early rise.

Sleeps up to 4, but this is the perfect romantic getaway for two. Great destination for couch potatoes and adventurers alike. No need to leave the comfort of the sofa to experience the beauty of the local wilderness, and those who do venture out have plenty of hiking, kayaking, swimming, exploring, skiing, snowshoe and snowmobile opportunities. We supply local guide books and restaurant recommendations.

The open floor plan with cathedral ceilings creates a spacious, airy main room with kitchen, dining and living area with easy to turn on gas fireplace. There are 2 bedrooms, one with queen bed, one with a double. A separate TV room is for watching movies, reading or enjoying that mid afternoon nap. Great lake views from this sweet little room as well.

Camp Starlite has one bath (shower only), a sweet outdoor shower in warmer months, indoor propane fireplace, outdoor firepit, full kitchen, weber grill, wifi, 40′ flat screen for DVD movies and Netflix (but no cable), land line phone (no cell service here!), fabulous Sonos Stereo system with indoor and outdoor speakers to enjoy music while grilling or chilling.

This cabin is like living inside a snow globe in the winter…there are so many windows you are simply surrounded by the snowfall, it’s a beautiful sight! A unique feature is that the moving water out front does not freeze, so there are water views and wildlife sightings year round. Otters are frequently seen sliding across the ice, very fun to watch!

Many hiking, snowshoeing and x-country ski adventures to be found locally. Great fishing. There is an adoroble ski mountain, Oak Mt., next town over with great music, meals and fun skiing. Ask about the $50 discount they offer to our guests! Gore ski mountain is a 50 minute drive. Cross country trails nearby. We supply 2 sets of adult snowshoes and one child pair. We are surrounded by woods, the lake and rivers – so a snowshoe hike right from the front door will take you through very pretty snow covered forest and striking river front spots.

This is a kayak haven for both beginners and the more experienced. Kayak 10 minutes to the right, you are on stunningly beautiful Piseco Lake. Kayak 30 minutes to the left (for the experienced kayaker only) to the more remote wilderness of Big Bay Lake. Lots of natural wild shoreline and wildlife to explore right out the front door. Most of our waterfront is too shallow to swim, except for one deep swimming hole. We kayak to the lake and enjoy the clear water and sandy bottom of Piseco Lake for a swim.

This is a no parties, no smoking, NO PETS (sorry!), allergy sensitive household. Due to our close proximity to the water, we have limited well and septic capacity. As a result, we can have no more than 4 persons here at any time, so this is not the place for family reunions or for entertaining.

Also, RECYCLES are a real hassle here. Guests who choose to stay here must agree to take theirs home if they bring a lot in, or take a trip to the transfer station down the road and leave them there. Leaving a few is fine, but must agree to follow the towns strict recycle rules – they must be kept clean and separate from garbage. We (i.e. the housekeeper) then have to take them to the transfer station and separate them into bins by hand. She simply cannot handle this task if large amounts are left. So – our general rule here is like camping – if you bring it in, you must agree to take it out.

This is a great home for self reliant, independent travelers looking for very comfortable, private and pristine accommodation in a unique and special spot. Piseco and the surrounding area are beautiful, but have limited entertainment venues other than nature hikes, mountains, wildlife, lakes and rivers.
