A very scenic and quiet place that was loads of fun for all family members, both young and old. We enjoyed canoeing, playing on the playground, playing on the beach, swimming, volleyball, fishing, and the fire pit! As the only house on the lake, we had a lot of privacy and freedom. Host was also very quick to respond. Highly recommend!
