We just had a very relaxing vacation week staying at the cottage. The weather was perfect and my wife and three girls (7,4 and 2) had a wonderful time. The beach is a very short walk from the cottage which makes it easy with kids as we could run back and forth to grab lunch, use the bathroom, etc. As the beach is for the association use only most days we were the only family there - we did get the opportunity to meet some of the other cottage owners in the association who were extremely nice and hospitable.
At night my girls had a great time chasing fireflies and sitting by the fire pit making s'mores. After the kids went down, my wife and i would sit on the deck and enjoy a couple of drinks while enjoying the view of the lake - definitely need a little bug spray as you'd expect but overall not too bad.
We did take a couple of day trips to both Storyland (about an hour and 5 minutes) and to Santa's Village (about an hour and 50 minutes)...not exactly close by but still a manageable scenic car ride that the kids did enjoy.
My wife was very pleased with the cleanliness of the cottage and also to find all the necessities in the kitchen. Most nights we would eat out on the deck which the kids really enjoyed as well.
Overall a very relaxing week and we were very pleased with the property and beach. Well worth the price and i would definitely recommend.
