Been coming to the North Shore for seven of the past eight years because it is truly the best vacation we've ever had. I have been hesitant to write a review because they only have a limited number of rental weeks available, and when you find a gem like this you keep your mouth shut. But we're pretty much locked in. We've never had a vacation that was this easy, and seemingly compulsory, to relax and have fun.
Every spot on the property draws you to the water and makes you feel a part of nature. The house is super clean and the owners are honest, friendly and respectful. The description is accurate. In addition, it is a nice balance of modern living with a homey, cabin feel. The kids just entertain themselves with so many activities and easy access in and out of the water. We just keep one eye on them from the comfort of the screened in porch or soaking up the sun on the dock. (The wrap-around porch alone is worth the price of admission. Eat every meal out there if you can and at night play cards or one of their board games.)
And there are so many peaceful places to read or practice the art of doing nothing. It's a unique feeling of privacy, yet you feel connected to everything that's going on around you. I don't know if there is a word for it but cozy doesn't do it justice. It's simply a well designed space for a get-a-way vacation.
