Sommer Retreat is a great vacation home. We had a group of 12 and everyone had their own space. Our twenty-something aged kids and friends took over the lower two levels and the 'grown ups' had the upper levels. There was plenty of space for cooking, eating and being together as well as plenty of space to 'get away'. The decks on each level offer great outdoor relaxation. The deck off of the kitchen is where we spent many a morning with coffee and breakfast and evenings relaxing. The stairs to the lake are steep, but manageable. Access to the lake was also accommodating. The water is wonderfully warm and we spent much time swimming and floating. We mostly ate in, as eating out with this many people is expensive...there was plenty of room to cook, and the 'kids' pitched in with cooking as well. All in all it was a great family vacation, the home is beautiful and I would recommend Sommer Retreat to anyone.
