it has a steep climb back up from the boatdock, which was great exercise, but if not physically able to do so, this will limit your outside activity. We forgot a jacket and the owners actually were going thru our hometown, and met me to return it personally. That speaks for itself. Great people!! It has a cozy, welcome home feeling. Very clean and even had cookies waiting for our arrival. We will go back, hopefully weather will cooperate next time.
