We had a wonderful time!!...My husband, myself and our 3 kids, ages 11, 16 & 21 had a great time swimming, fishing, playing board games, sunning, reading and enjoying the solitude of the island..we had dinner together & a fire every night on the dock. We had family time that we have not had in a long time, plus the kids had their own cabin & we had ours on opposite sides of the island!! Our 2 dogs also we're with us and loved the place (no need for leashes) The best part is that the island is big (an acre+) and all your's.,and there is plenty to do. Other than going out for supplies, we never left it all week! It was like visiting a relatives summer house, everything was open to use and play with, tubes, water ski's, nets and previous guests left charcoal , water, lamp oil and stuff to use (& we stocked it back up to leave for the next guests) The neighbors (on the main land, where you park) were terrific, letting us know the closest place's for different things. A boat marina is close by, so renting a boat was very easy. The place is old, so expect occasional things that need to be repaired, but the solitude, beauty of views & the area more than makes up for that. For a family who enjoys the outdoors and nature, this vacation it was excellent, and we are planning to return again next year.
