We have stayed at Thomsonite 7 of the last 9 years to enjoy fall on the North Shore. If you are looking for a luxury experience, this is not it. This place has a homegrown feel, welcoming and informative hosts, a beautiful location, and a relaxing atmosphere. It is the perfect place for us. We have been here as a couple, with one family group, and with our entire clan. Each time we've loved the campfires and playing with the dog. The scenery can't be beat - right by the lake (not across a busy road as so many places are.) Some units are sleeping units only (with a small fridge and a mic) and others have a kitchen or kitchenette. As a couple our top choice is unit 3. The views are the best, and it has a kitchen complete with a dishwasher. Remember to bring your own shampoo. If you need suggestions for the area, Scott or Lee will help you. We have borrowed a great, detailed map of the back roads and have had some great day trips. Other reviews on the site will give you more adventure choices, too. ENJOY!
PS Unit 3, while not handicap accessible, does not have any steps.
