My husband and I haved stayed here many, many times over the years and have always really loved it. The cabins are neat and clean and almost all are right on the water. It is truly the place to go to de-stress!
There is wildlife to see (we've seen moose several times) and love the loons on the lake. We've also seen an eagle a few times.
It is a pretty area of the country and good to see by hiking or renting a kayak or boat. Our hosts - Martine and Bob - are very helpful and you couldn't ask for nicer people. Their son, Chris, has a guide service as well for sightseeing or hunting.
We highly recommend this as a relaxing, peaceful vacation - either to just read and get some R & R, or utilize the lake for fishing and boating.
