“Great kayaking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Great location for a kayak trip as lots of islands to explore. Cafe at North end very retro but originally so! Water okay for swimming but can be weedy in low water. Paid boat trips can take you part way around the water so you can walk a bit more to another hotel at the South where they also serve drinks and food to non residents

“Just beautiful :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We loved the quiet location of this lake and the beautiful scenery surrounding it. It was very romantic walking around the shore and the dogs liked it too :)
