We really enjoyed our stay! With views of the lake, surrounded by trees and nature, a good balance of relaxation and activities. Many villages and towns to keep you as busy as you care to be -yet return for sunset or a cookout on the deck and feel a million miles from anywhere. Rent a pontoon on the lake (a must)the sandbar is breathtakingly carribean blue. Visit the town of Alden by wate,r then go to Dockside waterfront restaurant on Clam river for casual dining, and watch all the boat activity while dining on the outside deck-with a small beach to cool off after dinner. Loved it!
After visiting with family many years decided to build a log home with acres to get the true feel of the 'up north' experience! After going to the area more than 25 years-still have things to do that are unique and ever rewarding. Whether its watching the deer from the front porch, the festivals, fairs and art shows. The nature areas and beaches-i still have many things yet to do. Never the same trip twice!
