From the Zillow listing:


Sitting on a hill overlooking Bowstring Lake is this nostalgic log, lodge cabin. This west facing cabin brings you back to the days when trappers and fishermen came up north to enjoy our woods and the lake. The high vaulted ceilings, antique cook stove, old lantern lights, rock fireplace, porch swing, wood floors and many other things remind you how lake life used to be. The lodge has two bedrooms and a large screen porch on the lakeside that is partially used for sleeping guests. The property is at the end of the road, very wooded and private. There is a garage, outhouse, and two storage buildings in the yard. The steps to the lakes edge bring you to the boat dock and lift which are included. The septic is brand new and most items stay with the lodge. This cabin has all the modern conveniences but gives the feel of days gone by.
