You'll love the original hardwood flooring found throughout the 2,100 square feet of open living space. Plenty of comfortable couches provide everyone with a place to spread out and relax during downtime. Log onto the wireless internet access to look up local attractions or grab a book from the library and get lost in a novel. Head into the fully equipped kitchen when hunger strikes. The chef has everything you need to make your favorite recipes, and there's plenty of room at the dining room table to enjoy your meals! After dinner, hang out in the sunroom and enjoy a nightcap as you recap the day's activities and plan for tomorrow's adventures! Whether you sleep in one of the 4 full beds, or on the twin-sized bed in the sunroom, you're guaranteed a peaceful night's rest during your stay at this wonderful home! There's plenty of extra space in the back TV screening room, so the occupancy is flexible. Your stay at 'The Bailey House' will be unlike any other vacation you've ever had. Take a ride on the owner's stagecoach or fly over the lake on a seaplane! Reserve an English butler for your stay, or plan to solve a murder mystery with your travel companions. Reach out to Evolve with requests! -- THE LOCATION -- 'The Bailey House' is ideally located steps from the crystal clear waters of Pine Mountain Lake. While the home has a secluded feel, it's near great options for dining like Willard Saloon and Eatery, and the Corner Store and Restaurant. You certainly won't have to travel far for days of fun during your stay in Backus! Just 1 block away you'll find a public boat launch and Rocky Dock park with a playground, picnic area, and swimming beach. Rent a boat and spend the day on the lake fishing for walleye, bass, northern pike, and panfish on the 1,612-acre lake. The kids in your group will like swimming in the water while you grill hamburgers at the picnic area! The Paul Bunyan Trail and Rest stop is a half block from the house and offers 100 miles of paved hiking, biking, rollerblading, and snowmobile trails. -- THE EVOLVE DIFFERENCE -- Evolve Vacation Rental wants your vacation experience to be everything you hoped for and exactly what you needed.
