My husband and I took my nephew and niece, 15 and 16 respectively, to this well appointed and lovely lake house for a week. Upon our arrival, we were horrified to discover there was no cell service and no internet access. Help! What would we do to amuse these two teens who are constantly bickering with each other? The answer: leave them alone! It took only 30 minutes for them to adjust and it was a joy to watch my nephew push his sister on the swing out back. My niece fashioned a bow an arrow by finding sticks in the woods out back and a piece of string. They even made a badminton set out of nearby materials. SHOCKING. From there, we decided to walk across the street to the crystal clear lake and do some swimming and fishing. Good luck was had in the fishing arena but not so much for "Uncle Glenn". He lost an oar in the middle of the lake and had to resort to a canoe type maneuver to get back to shore. This provided many laughs, even for Uncle Glenn. Nearby,hiking trails lead to a magnificent waterfall. One evening, we took a 30 minute ride to a go cart race track where the kids had fun knocking each other around. And the best discovery was the local ice cream stand with a line 25 deep but no one seemed to care. I can only imagine it was because 3 scoops of rich creamy ice cream cost about $2.50! I cannot emphasize our shock when we realized that teens can carry on conversations, cook for themselves, clean the dishes and giggle until their bellies hurt when they are not glued to their cell phones and tv. It's been a year but we are all still talking about our wonderful week at the tranquil lake house retreat on Crystal Lake. Don't hesitate to visit this serene property. Elizabeth and Brian ensured we had all the information needed to make this vacation spectacular.
