Fishing here is for bass, large bluegill, and the occasional 25+ pound catfish and carp! The second approximate four acre "Finger Lake" is over 20-feet deep and features three T-headed piers ranging in length from 24 to 82 feet long and is stocked with Florida largemouth bass, coppernose bluegill, and channel catfish. The classic, stylish metal roof covered bridge is 80-feet in length and can support passenger vehicle traffic giving access to most of the property via miles of interior roads and trails.
The two residences include the "Long House" a 1,504 square foot remodeled three bedroom, two bath manufactured home with built-on attached 14'x48 covered back porch boasting unrivaled views of the lawn and lakes, a 14'x40 covered entry porch, a 14'x12' utility room, and a rear 70'x10' covered porch, all combined for a total of over 4,000 feet under metal roof. Connected by concrete patio is the "Tall House," a two-story 1,100 square foot building offering full kitchen and powder room downstairs with a circular staircase leading to a separate bedroom, open bunkroom, and full bath upstairs. Great views of the covered bridge and Finger Lake can be seen from either of the upstairs or downstairs covered porches.

Inside is a wash basin, ample cabinet space, an elaborate wood workbench with drawers and cubby holes for storage, rear building material racks, a diesel storage tank, and vehicle washing station. Lastly, perched above Willow Pond is the 500 square foot concrete pavilion featuring ceiling fans, kitchen sink with cypress countertop food prep area, ample cabinet storage, and a separate covered bar-b-que area. A wood storage rack for outdoor camp fires is located nearby.
