Great location! Lake Manawa is a beautiful little lake with a nice public beach and a huge playground nearby. The canal right in the backyard was a fun place for the kids to swim. We had fun using the paddle boat, also. There are trails all over around this place with plenty of wildlife. I saw maybe 8 deer and 4 wild turkeys. The area felt very safe and not far from shops and attractions. Some minor maintenance needed on inside, such as bathtub and kitchen faucet difficult to turn on and some kitchen drawers that we had to be careful not to pull out too far, but overall the place was clean and had everything we needed.
