Escape to quiet Turtle Cove on Lake Centralia where you will be able to relax, recharge, while having fun with your friends and family. This expanded modular home offers a full kitchen, dining room, three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, with a large addition that could be just for the kids which has two futon sleepers, satellite TV, wifi, with the half bath. The living room and large addition both offer expansive views of the quiet and inviting waters of Turtle Cove.

While the inside is comfortable and cozy you'll definitely want to spend most of your time outdoors. Starting with the covered deck which offers a bar area with seating for up to 10, a great place to enjoy your morning coffee while you're planning your events of the day.

The adjacent concrete patio is an ideal place for serving your outdoor meals while doubling as a great central location for your groups activities.

There is also a electrical outlet if you need to power any outdoor speakers or appliances.

Just next to the patio is a very inviting fire pit which offers a large expanded metal grill in addition to a swiveling stainless steel surface that's perfect for searing. We will provide the roasting sticks and enough firewood to last your entire stay.
