Port Gillum where there is a lake view from every room...even the bathrooms!

Located in: Rockwood
Come retreat from it all at Port Gillum. This one of a kind oasis was built with the sophisticated vacationer in mind! When you first arrive at the estate you will be met with a small vineyard of grapes which the owner grows to create his own wine. And yes, you are welcomed to sample both the grapes and the wine left for you to enjoy! Take a moment to witness the wildlife who share this beautiful property with you. You may see the Eagles which nest near the property line as well as deer, beaver, river otters, osprey, rabbits and flying squirrels to mention a few.
At the end of the stately driveway, to the left, you are able to park an RV/ Camper and utilize the available 30 amp hook up and water source. To the right, you will see an open air fire pit to roast marshmallows and enjoy the stars. During the day you will enjoy watching the Eagles soar above amongst other beautiful birds and wildlife native to the area. As you walk from the driveway to the home's entry you will find a darling Guest Arborhaus with bunk beds, refrigerator, freezer, microwave and all the comforts of tiny house living (with the exception of a bathroom). Continue to travel outside the Guest Arborhaus to experience a serenity garden perfectly planned for your meditation, Tai Chi or yoga practice to calm your inner being while connecting your mind, body and soul. You will enjoy hours in the garden listening to the gentle waterfall and admiring the cherry blossoms when in bloom with the lake as its back drop.
Upon entering the home you will be immediately drawn to the large glass sliding doors which allow a breathtaking lake view from every room. Before you step back outside take a moment to see the dual masters with full baths on either side of the main living area. Should additional sleeping arrangements be needed, the fold out ottoman converts to a twin size bed and if needed an extra air mattress may be provided.
The main living area is an open concept which hosts a warm gas fireplace and big screen TV as well as a lake view dining area . You will also find a small work area if you must be productive, wifi internet is included. A small room where a wet bar, wine refrigerator and laundry machines are tucked away but can be seen from the pass through when serving up a glass of proprietary wine. On the opposite side of the living area is a modern kitchen with upgraded appliances which includes a dual oven, dish washer, refrigerator, freezer and an additional wine refrigerator. You will find everything you need to make your special someone a romantic dinner or feed your family a real home cooked meal.
As comfortable as the inside of this home is, you will be drawn to spend most of your time on the back patio deck which is accessible from both bedrooms and living area. The unique deck gives an illusion of being suspended above the lake with uninterrupted water views. It's the perfect spot to relax in either the private sauna or the six person hot tub after an exciting day of boating or fishing from the private dock. If you forgot your fishing rods, there is no need to worry. The owner has left rods and reels for you to use! Also provided for you is your very own fish cleaning station by the dock and a gas grill on the deck or open fire pit with a grate for grilling, located in the front of the home to cook your catch of the day! If the idea of a more intimate patio is of an appeal, follow the soothing sounds of the waterfall to find a second deck with a patio an additional gas grill perfect for outdoor dining in the side yard just under the serenity garden. The boat dock is equipped with a 110 volt 20 amp outlet for charging your boat battery as well as a fish clean station with water. Fishing rods and two kayacks are also available for your use.
Returning to Port Gillum will become an annual pilgrimage for anyone who treats themselves to this one of a kind estate.
