Dutch Creek Country Rental Home

The Country Home sits closer to Route 550 instead of 690 on a private, wooded lot on Dutch Creek Road.  This home is one of our favorites because of its open floor plan between the living room, dining, and kitchen under the cathedral ceiling.  A wood stove keeps it toasty in the winter unless you prefer to use the electric heat.

Large windows provide tons of sunlight and a wonderful view of the wildlife.  The first floor also offers a bedroom, full bath, and laundry.  The unique floor plan offers a loft style master with full bath upstairs.

Rent $1050 includes lawn care.  No utilities included.  Minimum water is an additional $45 per month paid with rent.  Two pet Friendly with deposit.  Room sizes:  Living 13' x 14', Open Dining Room/ Kitchen 11' x 30', 1st floor full bath 4' x 12', 1st floor bedroom 10' x 13', master bath 9' x 12', master bedroom 16' x 17'
