On the main floor there is a fully-equipped kitchen with a fridge/freezer, microwave, toast, oven/stove, with a dining area next to the kitchen seating up to 8. And a bathroom with a shower . Up in the sleeping loft there are 2 separate bedrooms with one queen size tempur memory foam bed and one king size bed / 2 single beds. There is one bedroom in the basement with a queen size tempur memory foam bed. In the basement there is also a hobby room with a sky satellite TV and a good stereo/home theater its a comfortable sofa area for relaxing, watching a movie, or listening to music on the TV, DVD and CD player. Also there is storage room in the basement with a thermostat for the hot tub.  Around the cottage there is a 100 m2 porch with a BBQ and a hot tub.

The house is built very high up on a hill with a magnificent view of the lake and surrounding mountains, so I recommend 4x4 car specially during winter but if not there is also possibility to park in the driveway and walk up to the house, instead you get these stunning panoramic mountain views it is also amazing to see the northern lights / aurora from there. The view is truly amazing!! The cottage is newly built so all the equipment are new.
