Our week in Big Canoe and specifically staying at "Almost Heaven" was wonderful. We were there with 2 of our kids and their young families and found the area and amenities perfect. We plan to return as the kids get older to take advantage of the activities for older children. The house was perfect for the 10 of us--6 adults and 4 children 5 and younger. We went swimming, canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, paddle boating and even took a pontoon boat out 1 day. The different pools had something for each age group and the bar-b-que and bode ball court area was a fun change of pace at the end of the day. Really wonderful place.
