“Beautiful family get-together location right on the lake”
Reviewed July 9, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Our family had an awesome get-together at this rental. When the water was calm we were able to enjoy paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing and water play. When the water was wild we loved watching the powerful waves crash ashore. All the cabins were clean and comfortable. The main house was a modern house and had a nice kitchen we used to make large meals, fully functional full-size bathroom, laundry in the basement, and beautiful windows that looked out to the lake. It has a nice cement patio out back, with large picnic table, patio set, and grills, which we used throughout the stay. The 1-BR cabin closest to the lake was an awesome spot for people to hang out with it's deck overlooking the lake. This cabin was bigger than expected and had a large sitting room, then an enclosed porch overlooking the lake with dining table/couch/bar. The other 2 cabins were a bit more rustic, but still clean & comfortable with plenty of space for a family in each. The yard is huge- great for a croquet game. The driveway is great for kids to bike up & down. 2 trees by the lake are spaced just right for a hammock.
This property was just right for our family.
The only thing that was tricky was that the main house was the only one with a shower in it (the 2 cabins did have bathtubs) and the plumbing is older in the cabins, so some of the toilets could be fussy. But we'd read that from reviews ahead of time so we were fine. Wasn't a big inconveneience for our group.
Bring some sweatshirts for cool summer nights on the lake. It's gets chillier than you'd expect!
We have a lovely family gathering here. Would return!

“It is a beautiful location and facility.”
Reviewed September 1, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The facilities were excellent. The one black eye that the place has is the party house, down by the beach, which has an unusable toilet and no shower. The couple who stayed there had to come to one of the other units to shower and use the toilet. If this was rectified, the location would be one of the best for a large number of family or friends. I would recommend this rental to most, but would inform them of the above problem in the party house.
