as a garage for the original resort owners. In 1931 the garage was moved

but this time with a surprisingly upscale northwoods design featuring cathedral

ceilings, trophy mounts, hardwood and slate floors, central airconditioning,

satellite tv, a charcoal grill, private deck and fire pit 

 

The main level has an open floor plan with a living room nook, designer kitchen

with custom cabinets and granite countertops, and a dinning area with a cozy

bed. The bathroom is cedar lined and has a shower.  The staircase leads to a
