We LOVE this home. Lots of things to do on the lake; canoe, swim, fish, etc. Our dogs loved watching for the loons as they came right up to the dock to feed on all the fish. Great place for kids, teens and adults. While the kids did have internet withdrawal on day one, by day seven, they were sad to be missing the daily swims, canoeing and hanging out (together!) and the fire pit cooking the days catch. Was even more relaxing for us (parents) and my mom to relax lakeside and enjoy the summer (even if there were 2 full days/nights of rain).
This was our 2nd year renting this home and I am sure it will NOT be the last.
**These pictures may not be up to date (new owners in 2013) as the 2 leather chairs in the Living Room photos have NOT ever been there in the 2 years we have rented this home, but there are 2 couches, which allowed us to have a family of 6 + dogs sitting for back to back movie/game nights (2+ nights of heavy downpours). Also the "checkers/chess" table/chairs (was there 2012, gone 2013) and dining room table are different, than shown. We had a much longer table to eat at both years and in addition, a bench, with the 4 chairs shown. While, the listing never mentions a fire pit, there is one, a very large one. However, I would suggest bringing your own chairs as the only ones available (2013) outside are for a outside dining area, which we eat at daily for lunch. There were originally some very heavy duty plastic Adirondack chairs(4) around the fire pit, but the prior owners may have taken those with them. There may or may not still be a hammock (was still there last year and years past), which was fantastic for LOTS of afternoon post swim/canoeing naps. I will say that this home offers THE most comfortable beds on a vacation yet, however #3 was a bed fit for a Princess (or two). The one and only bath has a somewhat highter than most claw foot tub (dreamy and delicious for relaxing bubble baths!!!) that my mother (elderly) had a difficult time getting up and into for showering. Be aware if you will be/have elderly guests. The fact that all the towels and linens are provided at no charge is the greatest benefit ever for packing for any vacation! Lastly there were no children's life vests (pictured in the Noah's Ark bunk room) as there were in our first years visit. BYO Children's Life Vests. There were 4 adult (very vintage and very bright orange) life vests only that will not fit on small children.
