Some properties near the area don't even have a lake view, and the entrance to the lake, is just from a small space. This home is true 'lakefront.'

This is lakefront, not just a lake view.

We had a wonderful weekend. Loved your beautiful home. It worked great for our big group. We were very blessed to have sunny, color-filled days. We hope to return next fall. Thank you!
