My family, including a toddler, stayed at Mallard Manor this past weekend. The setting is delightful. Big wide porch overlooking a finger of a lake. We brought our kayaks, but to get them down to the water would have been almost impossible. Very steep down there, but still you could easily walk down there and fish. Appointed very well and very clean. Kitchen outfitted to a T. No air conditioning, but not a problem. Extremely comfortable, very quiet.
