Short Description

Lakefront home on a harbor of Castle Rock Lake


Nestled in a snug harbor, this is the perfect cottage to launch your waterfront activities! Boating, fishing or jet skiing. With your own private launch, and pier … there is plenty of room for multiple boats or water toys. Enjoy a peaceful campfire in the evenings, roasting marshmallows and telling “fish tales” of the one that got away! Lay back on the wrap-around sitting deck high over the water and take in the gentle lake breezes and peaceful harbor activities. Bring your basketball for a quick game of hoops. A beautiful view of the harbor as it channels off into three different directions. Listen to the lapping waves from the wooden swing at water’s edge.

Fishing Trip
Excellent trip as always. House is perfect for the 4 of us and the amentities keep everyone busy when we are not on the boat or just relaxing.

Pretty comfortable couches and beds and nice to have laundry and kayaks/stand up paddle board! Location on channel but very close to main lake was quiet. Could have supplied basics like hand soap, and more towels- for the leaky tub clean-up, but overall good place to stay. (Grill needs to be cleaned as the bottom material kept starting on fire.)

Always a great trip
Been going for years. House is great and in best location.

This is our second time staying there. We liked it so much the first time that we went back this year. The sunsets are amazing from the living room.

Was a very relaxing stay. Being by the water and having our own dock was the best asset to this vacation. Beautiful and serene.
