Cottage Lake is peaceful, quiet and lovely. It is good for kayaking or swimming. Spend time in the hot tub, lounging on the dock, the upper and lower decks, or under the gazebo. Large and small fire pits provide warmth and a cozy setting. Eagles from a nearby nest periodically soar over the water.

The neighborhood is secluded with many tall evergreens on a dead-end street for pleasant strolls. A supermarket is one mile away. The center of town is three miles away with stores and a great variety of restaurants. There are over 100 wineries and many breweries here.
