About the Gatekeeper
The Gatekeeper Cottage is our first born, so to speak. We designed it to give our guests a rustic, yet romantic feel of yesteryear. The decor is filled with things of long ago as well as things of today with all the modern amenities you’d expect. It is centrally located on the property and is near the stunningly beautiful Rose-stone berm entrance to the resort. The Gatekeeper boasts a large wrap around porch where you can sit and relax while taking in the panoramic view of the hidden wilderness of Tuscobia Lake!
The Sleeping Loft
Climb the ladder stairs into a heavenly master bedroom with sliding barn doors that can be opened during the day to let the brilliant light shine in from adjacent dormer windows, or closed at night to provide more privacy. This bedroom also features two skylights, walk in closet, and a half bath. A french door leads to an outdoor balcony offering a grand view of the eastern sunrise whether you're relaxing with a good book, or just waking up enjoying a fresh cup of brew. The heartbeat of this cottage is the one of a kind wavy balcony just outside of the bedroom overlooking the great room and fireplace. This balcony with it's artistic flair sets everything into motion, like a wave, so that everything in the cottage flows from one end to the other welcoming you!
The Main Level
When you enter into the Gatekeeper you'll find an open concept great room and full kitchen. In the great room you'll be in awe of the beautiful vaulted ceiling and Black Frost ledge-stone fireplace the minute you walk in. The towering tin wall to the west that reaches 22 feet to the peak will be sure to catch your attention. All of the walls and the entire ceiling are made out of Black Ash car siding perfectly stained to let the beauty of the wood grain show through. Oak hardwood floors run throughout the entire main level and sleeping loft. The kitchen features all new appliances, including electric stove, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher.

About the Turtle
Slow and steady wins the race! We are tickled to introduce our second cottage “The Turtle” here at Stonehaven Cottages! This cozy little one level cottage was moved here from Turtle Lake, WI and has received a total makeover. We’ve sprinkled in a few antiques, along with some adorable turtle decor to give this quaint lakeside cottage a charm all its own!
Inside the Turtle
Transforming this little gem was a lot of hard work, but well worth it! The first thing we did was knock out a few walls to create an open concept, which includes a full kitchen, dining area, and a living room with a cozy field stone fireplace. It has one small bedroom with a full size bed, a queen sofa sleeper in the living room, and a small bathroom with a shower. The focal point of this cottage boasts a large barnwood archway in the vaulted ceiling giving it a look and feel of being inside a turtle shell. We added barnwood and cedar shakes to several walls giving it a warm rustic charm. We left some of the knotty pine walls to give it a nostalgic feel of northwoods cabins of the past. You'll enjoy the look and feel of the old Fir flooring as you walk barefoot throughout the cottage. The entire east side wall of The Turtle has windows allowing for a spectacular sunrise view of Tuscobia Lake!
The Lakeside Deck
You can enjoy eating/grilling on the lakeside deck, or relaxing by the campfire area that overlooks the waterfowl marsh in the foreground, and Tuscobia Lake in the background. You won't want to miss watching the Bald Eagles flying in and out of their nest on Eagle Island, which is about 500 feet across the lake from the campfire area. Eagle Island is home to a large bald eagles nest that has been there for years! When life gets too busy, come and slow down a bit at "The Turtle"!
