Roostica Cottage was recently featured in Cottage Journal magazine. But it’s not just good looking. Whether you crave outdoor activity, a low key retreat, or first class shopping and dining, Roostica offers it all. Recently renovated and designer appointed, our storybook cottage hosts a group of eight as easily as a romantic getaway for two.

The amenities begin outside where a circular driveway accommodates several cars, and a flagstone walk provides easy access to the front door. The vaulted great room is just one step up. Here a gracious fireplace and designer decor draw you in. Large windows provide views of Lake Sequoia, the largest lake in the Highlands.

Prefer fresh air? Step into the adjacent screened-in veranda. Here, overstuffed wicker and a second fireplace beckon, especially nice for winter days or cool summer nights. There’s also a daybed for napping, a table for alfresco dining, plus that wonderful water view.

Back inside, the den offers a third fireplace, cable TV, and a fully equipped kitchen that opens to the living area (so you’ll be part of the fun). Here you can make a snack for 3 at the island, a meal for 4 on the veranda, or dinner for 8 in the great room.

Don’t feel like cooking? You can walk, or kayak, to the elegant “On the Veranda” restaurant—5 minutes on foot—or make reservations on Main St., a 4 minute drive.

Finally, after a day of shopping, dining, exploring nearby waterfalls and other nature activities, retire to one of Roostica’s three bedrooms—all with private baths.

The upstairs master offers a king bed with fireplace, sitting area, cable TV, private coffee station and water view.

For those who appreciate easy access, two main floor suites—one with twin beds, the other with a queen—await only one step up from the driveway.

The lower floor offers beds for two, cable TV, half bath and Foosball. You’ll also find board games, more books, and a full size washer and dryer.

Outside, a path winds gently through our fenced back yard to a private dock with kayaks, just across the road. Feel like cocooning? Log into Roostica’s internet, watch cable TV, or build a fire. Firewood is stacked on the patio.

Once inside, it doesn’t take long to realize that we love animals at Roostica, so we do consider pets. (They can have the run of the place when you’re with them, but we ask you to please safely crate them when you’re not.)

Whether you’re looking for a cozy winter retreat, or cool summer fun, we think you’ll enjoy your stay at Roostica Cottage—and we’re looking forward to hearing about it.
