This property is on a gorgeous location on top of a small hill. The view of the lake from the house is breathtaking. Our group enjoyed our stay thoroughly and we took full advantage of the amenities in the property like out door fire pit, hammock, boats/kayak allowed by the home-owner to be used by us. The house has enough space--we were a group of 9 people and the space was ample however there is only one shower so that might be a limitation. the kitchen was very spacious and had all the stuff needed for cooking. It would have been nice if there was a functional grill for using outdoors--the one that was there was kind of old and did not work very well. There was some strange odor in the dishwasher but that might be because of its limited usage. Overall, this place is highly recommended for vacation stay. The owners were really nice and friendly and the view and location is absolutely spectacular!

We had a Thanksgiving gathering (memorial) at Shawn's lovely Cedar Log Home. Our group was large with multi-age extended family members. Shawn made comfortable arrangements for our stay and was very helpful in every way. The kitchen is fully equipped with a variety of large pots and pans, plenty of utensils, spices, misc. extras. The fireplace is cozy, and the living room large and spread out with wonderful views of the lake. A nice mix of mingling and private spaces. We had a soccer game in the snow on the lawn. The deck is huge and right off the kitchen. The house is set back and up from the road - a nice private location but easy to get into town. Lovely rolling hills and farms in this area too. The lake is beautiful. The place is clean and well maintained. The radiant heat made the floors warm on bare feet - especially the bathrooms. Lots of games and things to do in the house for family. more
