At the top of the stairs going to the upper level, you find yourself on the open catwalk with railings on both sides. A great place to sit for more private conversations, a game of checkers, or to play classic games on the cocktail arcade table. You do remember how to use a real joy stick? Show the kids the games you grew up with.
There are four master suites on the upper level, each with a king bed, daybed with trundle, its own TV, and bathroom with a walk-in shower. They each sleep four. Distinctive features include custom made closets with shelving and cubbies so you are not living out of a suitcase. As with the main level, each side of the beds has a sconce light, floating shelf with outlets for electric, and USB ports for charging your electronics. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan.
When you stay in one of these master suites, you get to step out on your own private balcony to enjoy some peace and quiet while drinking your morning coffee and relishing the gorgeous lake view, or relax after a busy day with a glass of wine and view the beautiful sunset over the lake, another unique feature of Heritage Retreat. From here you will want to take some vacation pictures to post on Facebook. You will also find a third washer and dryer on this level.
The lower level has four master suites. Three have a king bed, daybed with trundle, their own TV, and a walk-in shower. They each sleep four and have the same floating shelves with charging capabilities as the other levels. The fourth is our bunk room with two sets of twin bunk beds and one set of full bunk beds, sleeping up to eight. Each bunk has its own light. The bunk room has its own bathroom with walk-in shower. These are not just kiddie bunks. Adults can use them as well. One of the bunks is full over full size. All the bedrooms on this level have their own TV and ceiling fan. The bunk room does not have a ceiling fan for safety to the top bunk guests.
There is a 70″ flat screen smart TV in the lower level family room, great for watching the game. Need a refill or some popcorn? No need to climb the stairs as there is a kitchenette/wet bar on this level with a third refrigerator, microwave, sink, and pub table with stools.
Take a break from the electronic games and play some billiards on the pool table. Or have a tournament on the air hockey table.
On the back patio you will find two propane grills. The family grillmaster will enjoy.
Slide the glass doors and step out on the back patio. Here you will find more comfortable furniture and the gas fire pit. Who does not like to sit around the fire and have a few drinks with a lake view in the background. No need to hassle with firewood or starting a fire, just click the fire on for instant heat and enjoyment. After a long day of activities, roast some hot dogs or marshmallows and make some smores. Maybe get out the bean bags and have some competition with the cornhole game which we provide.
The swim/spa is the main highlight of the back patio. Another of our guest’s top preferences is a private hot tub for adults and heated swim area for the kids. It is only for our guests staying at Heritage Retreat. This swim spa is 20 feet long and 7 1/2 feet wide. Relax and drift away as you let the spa jets soothe your muscles.
The spa is divided from the swim area and is heated to 102 degrees. The swim portion is 15 feet long and heated at 80 degrees with an eternity swim jet which allows adults to swim as far as they want without going anywhere. It is a great work out. However, I plan to use the hot tub portion and watch my grandkids in the swim area.
You must be 16 years old to stay in the hot tub for longer periods of time as it is not safe for young children to be in there for more than 10 minutes. But they will love the swim portion and you will probably end up joining them.
