Time is precious.  Acorn Landing is the perfect place for both fun and relaxation.  This is a very thoughtful home, where each detail has been attended to with care. Often it's challenging to find a lake house which has all you dream of for your sacred vacation time. Acorn Landing is an idyllic place to create memories centered around your family and friends. 

The Long Lake lakefront, where Acorn Landing resides, provides two (2) wonderful spaces for the kids to play, and the adults to relax. One space is at the sandy area in front of the seawall, the other is in the water.  All within easy access for the kids run back up to the house for a snack, or the adults to grab a drink.   This is in addition to the wrap around dock which creates a
 swimming cove, with a ladder to safely enter the hard sand-bottom lake.

This beautiful home features 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, along with a large deck, facing Long Lake for all of your entertaining needs. The lake views from the gorgeous windows often capture your attention while having dinner, or relaxing in the living room by the cozy fireplace. 

When it is time to sleep, the adults will retreat to the king, queen or twin beds on the main floor, while there is what we aptly call a "cousin's loft" above with 4 twin beds + 1 bunk (full/twin) where the stories from the day are shared.

It's the little things.  Here, there is even a space where a deck was placed to carve out those few minutes of work, while your family soaks in the vacation fun.  Plus, a breakfast nook to enjoy morning coffee, afternoon tea or an evening glass of wine for those more intimate conversations.

Finding the time to enjoy the Acorn Landing lake house will surely be something you will be grateful you did. Together.
