12The cottage is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath home 90 feet above a hard, sandy beach. There is also a loft. It was built in 1996 and remodeled in 2010. That year the porches, a new roof, cedar shakes, the three 3 season rooms, and 4 storm doors were added. Gutters on the pole barn and stone walkways, the porches and a new roof were added in 2010/2011. New steps to the beach, the deck and new benches on the deck, a fence, new wood floors, 3 new Pella windows in front on the lower level, and stairs and landings to the lake were added in 2012.

Interior finished space is 1,758 square feet (not including basement and porches.) The 3 season porch off the back is 275 SF, 3 season off side is 162 SF, and the screened porch off back and side is 329 SF. Deck out front is 444 square feet.

The Master bath has jetted tub, separate shower, toilet and full vanity. Master bedroom has a walk-in closet. Master bedroom and loft have berber carpet. The first floor has hickory hardwood floors. Kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room and entry room are ceramic floors.

A full poured basement is roughed in and has a sump pump for easy water drainage if shutting down the cottage for the winter. There is a laundry room with sink and disposal on the first floor. The kitchen has disposal and dishwasher. The refrigerator is propane.

Fireplace is real fieldstone and is gas at this time.

There are two three-season porches and two screened porches. Porches on two sides are poured cement. The third three season porch has wide pine board flooring.

There is a laundry room with sink.

The house can be heated with forced air furnace (propane), or by the fireplace and two gas room heaters. There are gas lights if needed and of course electric. There is also a generator that kicks in if the electric goes out and shuts itself down when the electric comes back on.

There is a pole barn with electric service, and a small log shed, a former generator shed, that can be used for garden supplies or whatevers.

The owners purchased the property in 2006 and added the porches, new roof, wood floors, ran electric power in, added electric in the garage and had new stairs and landing to the lake built. They also had the logs removed from the lake side wall, had it framed and finished with wood shakes and new Pella windows on theta first floor side.The weather from the lake was just too harsh on the logs on that side and maintenance was a nightmare. Now most logs are protected by porches for much easier maintenance

There is a blinker at Hwy. US-2 at Thompson. That is Little Harbor Road. Going south on Little Harbor Road the property is exactly 10 miles from US-2 and the drive is 1/2 mile long. Little Harbor has 5 miles of blacktop and 5 miles of high quality gravel road. The last time we were up they were widening a few more miles of the gravel road, perhaps to extend the blacktop.
