From the Zillow listing:


This seasonal, turn-key, cottage retains some of yesteryear’s charm coupled with today’s modern conveniences. It sits high on a bluff within a private, wooded, setting. The screened-in porch provides the best seat in the house — except, of course, those experienced while seated inside around a crackling fire. There is a sizeable main floor bedroom (which was added in 1961) and a loft for overflow. The interior is timeless and classic with knotty pine walls, sustainable wood floors, and solid wood doors. The landscape consists of natural foliage and ferns, with the native lake shore accessible by a rustic wooden staircase.
