Front view of Shady Rest Cabin

It is a modern cabin, with central air-conditioning/heating and is located on the west side of the lake. It has a beautiful view and offers a year-round alternative to the camping experience. For those people who enjoy the outdoors but don’t want to, or can’t, “rough it,” the cabin is the answer. The cabin features easy access to the lake's fishing, boating, and water-skiing opportunities, by way of a brick walkway down to a large dock.
