When the road to a lake home narrows down to one quiet lane, we know the property it leads to is special and lovely. Once you pass through the artisan-built stone pillars guarded by twin, towering pines, the way to this lake home will enchant you.

Two stories, 2,430 sq. ft., 4 comfortable bedrooms, 2 full baths and a new, wrap-around deck, this cedar beauty is carefully sited on a knoll overlooking the lake. The natural beauty of this property is exceptional, and my words do not do it justice.

Built for easy flow and easy living, both levels have 2 bedrooms and a full bath. Grand, calico-brick fireplaces are focal points both upstairs and down. They function creatively as dividing walls between the living room and kitchen/dining area in the top level and between the family room and laundry/mud room below.

The 14×11 kitchen is designed for people who love to cook and entertain. It is well lit with decorative pendants. Two sky lights stream in natural lighting as well. There is a breakfast bar for casual lunches and a dining area towards the lake that is handy to the sliding deck door for grilling out summer nights.

The 26×13 living area, divided from the kitchen and dining areas by the fireplace, has commanding lake views on the west and north sides. The cedar panel walls, cream Berber carpeting, darkly beamed ceiling and multi-colored bricks of the fireplace are warm, design details. You can access the deck from the living area, too.

In the lower level, the family room is casual and cozy. A wood stove sits in one corner, in case all you need is a small fire to take out the spring or fall chill. The laundry room is spacious (17×14) and doubles as a mud room entry from the lake. A walkout door on this level leads to a lakeside patio. Most furnishings stay. There is a 3-car garage with ample storage room.

Situated next to the last property on the road, there are 0.88 acres in all and 190 feet of perfect, sand-bottom frontage. The home includes a dock with cedar panels and bench. The firm, sand-bottom frontage will delight swimmers and waders. Spider Lake is very clear, quite large, 1,604 acres and 64 feet deep. It is known for excellent musky and walleye fishing. The secchi reading on Spider averages 13 feet in the summer. Baby loons are born and raised on this lake, a testament to the lake’s fine water quality.

There is a wind today out on Spider, and I hear the lake lapping the shoreline. The breeze brings a scent of pine. You need to experience this lake and these woods to understand the opportunity here. Give yourself a treat, take a day or two and visit our Northwoods. We can’t wait to show you this beautiful home!
