A Sleepy Bear's Dream is literally, as the name suggests, a dream. It sleeps up to 7 in two bedrooms and a sleeping loft, which overlooks the great room. In the middle of the great room is a 21 ft. tall tree which supports the main beams of the building. The front of the house has a bow shaped deck which extends over the water where fish are eagerly awaiting a handout [fish feed provided]. Both bedrooms have private balconies, and there are huge outdoor living spaces on each side of the building. The loft has its own set of balconies which can be reached through patio doors. When one is upstairs and looks over the great room to the water, sometimes, there is the illusion the building is moving. One has to be careful not to get seasick when the wind makes waves move in a certain direction. Throughout the cabin can be found examples of local craftsmen's talents, from the structure itself, which was owner designed with the assistance of M&S Log Homes and built by a local artisan, to the railings and the furniture, again which were created by local folk from locally acquired materials. A large recreation area is located on the ground floor. A hot tub, a pool table, and an exercise bike are now available. In the near future, there are plans for table tennis and a game table.
