I've rented 20 cabins through the years and this is the best one we've ever stayed in. Not only did it sleep my 14 people; it had enough, plates, forks and glasses to serve everyone!! The kitchen had every tool that we needed, the beds were comfortable - even the futons. Loved the place and I hope we are lucky enough to make staying at the Trout Trap a tradition.
If you can tear yourself away from all that relaxing, there are plenty of things to do in the area, including all kinds of lake and river water sports, hiking, mountain biking, antique and crafts shopping, scenic drives, and golf.
