Once-in-a-generation chance to own a part of history with Bob Allen's Lakeside Tourist Camp. Built in the 1920s, the original lodge and 2 cottages retain their original charm, yet have been updated to last another 100+ years. Enter the main house through a screened porch with new Trex flooring and step back in time to the original camp's expansive kitchen. You'll find original built-ins, a vaulted ceiling, a cook's stove, and gleaming Douglas fir floors that extend throughout the home. Off the kitchen is a 1/2 bath with clawfoot tub and a separate laundry room. The old dining hall now serves as a living and game room. Windows line the lake side of the house to western views of the lake. Have a warming fire in the restored fireplace and shoot some pool. Walk out to the screened porch that runs the full length of the house and listen to the lulling sound of water lapping the shore. Down a hallway off the kitchen are 3 newer bedrooms and 3/4 bath that have been insulated and have electric heat to extend the season. Stroll out to your 2 lakeside cottages. "Silver" is a studio with 3/4 bath and "Toppel" has 2 bedrooms and 1/2 bath. Down gradual stairs built in 2016 is your 232' of beautiful lakefront. Two Hazlett moorings and 2 floe aluminum dock sections included. You also have common land with an additional 136' of gradual shore just up the road. This historic and charming property comes furnished with original artifacts from the camp. Years of summer dreams are waiting here!
