Features of the Knotty Pine Lodge
3,700 sq ft of finished living space with knotty pine planking on every wall and every ceiling throughout the house - with one exception: The ceiling of the Gathering-Game Room has special sound-deadening materials to help acoustically isolate it from the 2nd floor BRs above it.
7 BRs and 7.5 BAs - with one wheelchair friendly BR-BA suite on the ground floor, and one wheelchair friendly BR-BA suite on the walkout level. A Stannah chairlift connects the main floor with the walkout level, and a transport wheelchair is on hand for Guests.
All 7 BRs have very comfy Queen beds with thick memory foam toppers; 3 BRs also have Twin Bunkbeds.
The BAs in the two wheelchair friendly BR-BA suites each have 3x5 roll-in showers, robust grab bars at the commode, and knee room 36" counter/sink. Bonus for parents of toddlers: These large 3x5 roll-in showers make a great spot for Pack-N-Plays at night!
Fully stocked with dinnerware, pots/pans, paper towels & much more. See Detailed List of All Items Provided.
The open concept Kitchen-Dining space features a dining table that when its two leaves are inserted can seat up to 16 (extra chairs provided). With barstools at the Bar-Buffet Counter and the adjacent sofa seating in the Great Room, 26 people may be seated at one time for meals.

The Gathering-Game Room has a custom sound deadening ceiling to acoustically separate it from the two BR-BA suites above it. This extra thick ceiling utilizes double layers of drywall affixed to special sound-absorbing fittings. Under the drywall is sound absorbing fiberglass insulation.
All 7 BRs have insulated walls to help keep out noise for a better night's sleep.

The main level Covered Deck measures 430 sq ft and has outstanding views of Stone Lake - just 25 feet away. The 36' x 12' deck has a privacy wall at the one end where there is a neighboring house that makes the deck very private. The deck also features "see-thru" stainless steel cable deck railing to enhance teh view of the lake.
The property is equipped with Comcast Xfinity's fastest available "Extreme" cable Internet service combined with a custom Wifi Mesh network with multiple Access Points that results in strong Wifi signals throughout the house, deck, BBQ grill area and even the firepit.
A huge 25' x 35' playscape for the little ones is set among the shade trees on the south side of the house with adjacent seating for adults.
A basketball hoop - easily adjustable from 10' down to 7' without tools so also great for the little ones - is right at the driveway.
12 bikes - a mix of adult and kid's sizes - for Guests to enjoy on the trails in our private 47 acres of woods and along the quiet streets of the Village of Cassopolis.

There is off-street parking right at the house to accommodate 7-8 vehicles, with space for even more if some are blocked in.
A Firepit overlooks Stone Lake and has ample seating.
A sloped hard-surface path from the walkout level concrete patio leads to the firepit, and continues to the lakeside 12' x 12' deck and on to the boat dock/ With assistance a wheelchair user may traverse this path all the way to the Pontoon Boat.
