The land or any buildings erected or to be erected thereon shall not be used for the purpose of any profession, trade, employment, service, manufacture or business of any description nor as a school, hospital, day care or other charitable institution, nor as a hotel, apartment house, rooming house or place of public resort, nor for any sport (other than such activities as are usually associated with a private residence) nor for any purpose other than that of a private residence, nor shall anything be done or permitted upon any of the lands or buildings erected or to be erected thereon which shall be a nuisance to the occupants of any neighboring lands or building.
Gas motorboats and personal watercraft (jet skis) are not welcome on the lake.
