We spent 2 wonderful nights in an upstairs unit with a lovely view of the lake. The unit comprised of a spacious and tastefully decorated bedroom/lounge area with double doors leading to a big private & covered balcony equipped with a table & chairs. There was a kitchenette with microwave, cooktop & dishwasher and a comfy couch and table setting in the “lounge” part. The bathroom was large and included a spa as well as a separate shower. Nice quiet location although a bit far from the restaurants. Being winter we chose to drive to/from there instead of walk. Only down side was the parking which was a bit squishy. The place was pretty full as it was a weekend so it and it was on a first in best dressed basis. Perhaps a designated spot for each unit would have been better?
Otherwise a great stay and would certainly stay there again.
