Enjoy a cozy stay in a lake front cottage. Located in Essex, on chebacco lake, this 3 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom home has everything you could need to relax. Fully stocked kitchen, comfortable living space with wifi and a large TV, and a comfy couch overlooking the lake. We have a external monitor with a keyboard and mouse to set up a workstation if needed. A large deck and dock to hang out on. Close to the ocean if you get tired of the lake. It's an excellent home base on Boston's North Shore.

The space
This space is small but has a wonderful open feeling and a view you can not beat. An open design, kitchen and living room overlooking the small but pretty lake. There is a work station, a large TV with a Roku and excellent WIFI. The bedrooms are small, the queen size bed is in the room overlooking the lake. The middle room has a cedar closet with a full size bed. The largest bedroom has a twin over full bunk, a 1/2 bathroom and a cedar closet. There is a full bathroom at that end of the hallway as well.

Outside is a large deck with chairs and a table with an umbrella that can sit 6 - 8 people. Head down the stairs to a small sandy area and then out onto the deck to sit and relax. There is a ladder into the shallow water and floats to glide out into deeper waters. The dock is not set up for motor boats.

We have 2 standup paddle boards, 2 clunky old kayaks and a canoe to use on the lake. Life jackets are supplied and required for you to use these water toys. Also available are Adirondack chairs, beach chairs, lots of things to float on and if you are in the mood to explore, 3 bikes tuned up and ready to go. Just please bring your own helmets or wear the ones we have. Again, use at your own risk.

There is air-conditioning in the main space and individual units in each bedroom. For cooler days (yes, this is New England) the a/c can be turned into a heating unit and we have a pellet stove stocked and ready to turn on with the twist of a knob. And of course we have a regular easy thermostat for the baseboard heat.

Kitchen is fully stocked with all you should need. We have a gas stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, and coffee maker. A crock pot to use if you want and since our freezer doesn't have an automatic ice-maker, we have a portable one if you are love ice in your drinks like I do. We also have a Brita pitcher in the refrigerator although the well water is fine to drink.
