Four women in their 60's have been coming here for about ten years and we LOVE it. We rent a three bedroom cottage right on the lake, cook our own delicious meals, ski out the door on perfectly groomed beautiful cross country ski trails (for striding or skating) and come back to make a blazing fire in the fireplace. There's... More

The quiet lake atmosphere is great for all to enjoy. Fishing, swimming, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, and walks around the lake on their private trail are... More

The resort offers snow shoes for all size feet and the kids even had a blast! The cross-county trails are top notch and groomed... More
