Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I are originally from the South and having grown up on water, we wanted a property with water !
It's such fun to watch for the various wildlife - ducks, geese, herons, turtles, frogs, deer, raccoons, skunks... Each season brings Bliss ! The Spring is a miracle of growth after the ravages of winter, summer is oh so wonderfully warm and sometimes even hot ! , the Fall is spectacular with all manner of color of leaves, etc. and the winter is 'Terrible Beauty' ... the snows and ice come and you watch it all happen and stoke the wood burning stove/ cook favorite foods and curl up being oh so cozy. But ... don't get me started about the year-round beauty !
