As soon as you arrive, you’ll be amazed by the quiet, wooded atmosphere. Keep a lookout for the area’s local wildlife, especially in the early mornings! Inside, the rustically designed interior features multiple living areas - all equipped with comfy furnishings and entertainment. The great room, highlighted by a tall stone fireplace, will surely be your favorite place to relax, watch a favorite movie, or compete in a game of pool. When hunger strikes, the fully equipped gourmet kitchen offers a stunning stone breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances. Once you’re home-cooked meal is ready, gather around the long dining table or head out to the screened-in porch to dine with a view. Rather cook outside? Throw the zesty catch-of-the day over the charcoal grill or light up the fire pit to roast some hot dogs and s’mores over the flames. Catch the sunset over the water and then gather back around the fire pit as the night sky fills with dazzling constellations. Come nighttime, you’ll find sleeping arrangements in the 7 bedrooms, 2 separate lofts, and sleeping porch located in a separate gazebo outside. In the morning, wake up refreshed and head outside to begin your lake adventures right off the dock. -- THE LOCATION -- ‘Ruth Lake Retreat’ is the perfect spot to enjoy a peaceful getaway with friends and family. Make good use of the boat dock, which can fit 3 boats, to spend everyday out on the water! If you didn’t bring your own vessel, check out rental spots at Al’s Marina, Crosslake Rental & Leasing, and Land O’Lakes Marina! Whenever you don’t want to dine at home, check out some of casual eateries in the area. Log Cabin Bar, Hot Stuff Pizza, and Granny’s Bar & Grill are just some of the nearby options. Golfers, be sure to bring your clubs, as Emily Greens Golf Course, Golden Eagle Golf Club, and Crosswoods Golf Course are just short drives away. -- THE EVOLVE DIFFERENCE -- Evolve Vacation Rental wants your vacation experience to be everything you hoped for and exactly what you needed.
