Great waterfront property for family getaway

This is a lovely 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath house that was beautifully furnished/equipped. We stayed here for a week with my extended family, including my 3.5 year old son. I had been a little bit concerned with being right next to the river but it was really not an issue as part of the backyard is completely fenced in. My son had a blast with the backyard swingset, the kids playroom with lots of toys, and kids DVDs. It was the perfect size for the eight of us, both in bedrooms and common space. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, and there is a very nice deck off the dining room for eating outside. The gardens outside are quite nice, with plenty of room to throw frisbees, etc. The living room is cozy with lots of soft reading spaces and picture windows to admire the striking view of the waterfall and lake beyond. And there is a separate TV room also on the first floor, which I thought was great as I hate having the TV/movie noise intrude on conversation. In terms of location, it was convenient to the train station (10 minutes) and to the beach (10-15 min), and there are lots of good grocery options nearby. The owners were truly wonderful hosts, leaving the house fully readied and with several unnecessary but much appreciated touches, as well as making lots of local recommendations. Would highly recommend this as a getaway for families or friend groups, including those with young kids and/or teenagers.
