    “Great property, facilities and fantastic location!”

    We were a bit concerned about charging our car near by, but we needn't have worried as this facility was provided, although not mentioned on website. The number of steep steps on the property should perhaps also be mentioned on your listing. It did not affect us at all but could have been a serious problem to others.

Boathouse on the Lake is surrounded by panoramic views of the Lake Windermere and the fells beyond.

This property offers a luxury studio-layout, based on the lavish "Millionaires mile", ideal for a romantic getaway with your other half.

The unique architectural design is striking, found through electric gates and a short road.

A number of steps takes you the entrance and your very own private hot tub for you to enjoy a relaxing evening; it's partially enclosed for you to enjoy in the winter months.

A handy utility room lies next to the entrance vestibule, fitted with a washer/dryer for you to use throughout your stay.

The ground-floor shower room boasts a spacious walk-in shower cubicle, decorated to a high standard with Lake District stone shower base.

Walk up a few steps to the gorgeous open-plan living space, a studio-style room comprising a kitchen, dining space, lounge, and super king-size bed, with captivating views out to the lake.

The well-equipped kitchen is fitted with all essential amenities for a self-catered stay, as well as a coffee machine and a food processor, great for a romantic evening cooking for two.

Settle down for a film night in front of the 60" TV on the stylish sofas alongside the bright large windows with amazing views out to Lake Windermere, an incredible and romantic evening.

Retire to the king-size bed after a busy day of exploring the Lakes, benefiting from high quality linen, there's even a desk nearby for those who need to check in with work.

The balcony area is the perfect wake-up call, a place where you can enjoy a morning coffee in the fresh air whilst looking out to the peaceful lake waters.

Boathouse on the Lake also boasts a wet dock area where you can moor a small boat which can be launched nearby in Bowness-on-Windermere, as well as using the provided kayak.
