Big Bertha's ~ This cabin chic home will win your heart!

Dog Friendly /  Internet /  Spa  / Bocci Ball

Big Bertha's has all the ingredients of a beloved vacation home. It is comfortable, stylish, unique, well-appointed and private yet conveniently located. Inside and out, Big Bertha’s expertly combines convenience and comfort with playful cabin chic. With a bocce ball court, outdoor fireplace, hot tub, gas grill, well-stocked kitchen, charming dining room writing desk, reading spots, games and books, cable TVs, high-speed internet, gas fireplace, kids game room, serene views and multiple coffee stations, Big Bertha’s is equally equipped to accommodate families, groups of friends, couples, lovers, food lovers, wine lovers, writers, philosophers, morning people, evening people, middle-of-the-day people and, well, pretty much anyone!

Big Bertha's sits hillside, and is two levels (the upstairs is the main living area). From the driveway, two flights of stairs lead to the deck and front door. Just inside the front door is a small entranceway, with hooks for coats and a place for muddy shoes. This room also contains the washer/dryer. The open kitchen and dining rooms are directly adjacent. The kitchen is recently remodeled with stainless steel appliances and attractive cabinetry. The bar counter transitions smoothly to the dining area, with a dining table which can comfortably seat 8. Sliding doors from the dining room lead out to the deck, which has a gas BBQ, picnic table, and folding Adirondack chairs. An open doorway from the dining area leads to the living room, with couch, chairs, chess table, reading lamps, cable TV, iPod dock, and a writing desk. A short hallway, accessible from both the living room and the kitchen, leads to one bathroom (with bathtub/shower), a bedroom with two twins, and a bedroom with a queen bed.

From the far side of the living room, next to the gas fireplace, a spiral staircase leads to the downstairs level. The downstairs has a game room, with a double futon for additional sleeping space, cable TV, and a card table. At the far end of the game room is a small suite with a queen bed, coffee station and small, yet full, bathroom with a shower. Sliding doors lead to a small lower deck with two Adirondack chairs; a great spot for enjoying some morning coffee!

The main outdoor living areas are located on the same level as the main interior. In addition to the deck with gas BBQ and outdoor dining, there is a side yard with a bocce ball court and a back patio with a hot tub.

Big Bertha's is named for the original owner, Bertha.  She and her husband built the house in 1952 and she is still a welcome visitor. When walking though the hallway, notice the art work, which is actually pieces of the original flooring found during the remodel.

Big Bertha's features a keyless entry system - enjoy the convenience of an express check-in directly at the home!
