This is a family vacation property which is offered for rental most of the year.
We fell in love with the area after renting a camp for snowmobiling. It offers so many outdoor activities that we can enjoy as a family. This home caught our eyes as it had all the comforts of home and then some!
The beach and lake are great for kids. The beach is visible from the house, so kids can play in the sand by the hour. The water is shallow for a while, making it ideal for small children. The snowmobile trail is at the end of the driveway, and offers groomed routes to the entire VAST system, or Canada and New Hampshire.
