Very private. There are cottages nearby, but nobody around made it wonderful for our kids to fish, swim and play on the beach in private. Cottage is very clean inside with everything we needed, we just brought food and clothes. The patio is gigantic with all kinds of room for the kids to play and family to hang out. The central air plus separate air conditioner in the bunkhouse made our nights very comfortable. Big plus was the firewood included, we didn't have to go get any for our campfires. The teens loved the bunkhouse and could make as much noise as they wanted without disturbing the adults. The fishing was great and the weather made swimming everyday a real relief. See you next year!
