“Beautiful and peaceful place to chill.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

it's right there in town, well it IS the town, as the shoppes are just an added attraction ! We immediately parked, and walked to the water, camera ready.

Love to make a day trip at Christmas, they have several restaurants, interesting shops and after Thanksgiving they have Christmas characters roaming about. It's Fun.

“Small Village Shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I try to visit here once or twice a yeaar. Have lunch at the Sherwood Inn or one of the other fine place to eat. I love to sit on one of the benchs by the lake and just people watch. On one Saturday in August i watched 5 different weddings. It was like being a guest, without having to buy a gift. Many shops in interesting buildings. Love the village.
