Lake Willoughby

Willoughby Lake is the deepest lake in the area, making for lots of different stories, some true and some maybe not. Either way it is surrounded with mysteries. Picturesque Willoughby Gap supports two mountains (Mt. Pisgah and Mt. Hor) for hiking or ice climbing and each offers spectacular views from the top. Scuba divers love to explore the depths of Willoughby Lake, swimmers enjoy the cleanliness, boaters enjoy the expanse and fishermen enjoy the record size fish. There are three beaches for entertainment; one nice sandy beach is located at the north end of the lake which is the largest and most popular and the other two are at the south end. One is a family beach across the road from White Caps Campground (http://www.whitecapscampground.com/) and the other, for those so inclined, is a nudist beach.  For rentals and restaurant try the Willoughvale Inn and Cottages (www.willoughvale.com).

Can you imagine the kind of Lake Front Cottage that dreams are made of? Where summer is more than a season and occupies a permanent place in your heart. Where you hear the waves licking the shore, the birds singing from tree tops and branches low enough to climb. Where the sound that the crickets make seems loud. Where playing hide and seek is as easy as ducking behind a tree or laying low in among the forest ferns. Where you pretend the boulder your standing on is a mountain you just climbed. Where you are sure that none of the fish in the lake could ever love swimming as much as you do. Where everything cooked out on grill just tastes better. Where smores and fireside stories are a nightly routine and sunsets are absolutely breathtakingly vibrant. Make all of these dreams a reality with this 3 bedroom country cape, its beckoning waterfront and private woodland setting. There is a great storage garage for all the water toys and a front deck running the whole length of the cottage allowing for beautiful views of the water. There is also a large deck setting on rocks at the water's edge, a privilege that is grandfathered in. Add your own new pages in 562 Old 5A's memory book.
