Perfect Family Holiday House

We enjoyed a fabulous 2 week break in this beautiful, enormous and very well equipped house. The big draw is, of course, the magnificent lake which can be endlessly explored in the canoes & kayak provided (plenty life jackets to fit all ages in the well equipped garage.) The sunrises and sunsets are stunning! The garden is large and friendly - the kids can play happily. The house itself is beautiful! It is very spacious, comfortable, bright and airy. The rooms are tastefully decortated and very comfortable. Huge windows along the lakeside wall on both floors provide breathtaking views and glorious daylight. You are spoilt for choice with eating areas. A large dining table in the open plan sitting/kitchen/dining room will easily sit 12 at the main table, with a smaller table ideal for breakfast. Or you could eat outside on the raised wooden decking, or walk down the wooden steps, across the garden to the lakeside patio ..... dreamy! There are plenty of garden chairs and tables and there is even a hammock under a large tree. The house is incredibly well equipped, and you will find so much extra provided - charcoal & gas for the barbecues, laundry detergent, beach towels and beach passes for the private beach 2 plots up, etc. There are lots of books, toys and videos for kids up in the attic room, with a large TV where they can watch Star Wars undisturbed! There is a good library for grown ups too, and lots of cosy corners to sit in peace. An in house computer (mac) for your use, wifi, easy drive to the city and airport make it a great base for a mixed work/holiday break. The owners are very hospitable and thoughtful in their preparations for your break, making themselves available and happily answering any queries. The locals are friendly and helpful, and all amenities are close enough for convenience but far enough to help that "getting away from it all" feeling. The area is really beautiful, a car is a must, and exploring should be too! We are delighted to recommend this house as the ideal family holiday, and very much hope to return again.
ps - if you are lucky, you may even get to see some of the local black bears, and if you do, don't panic. They are more scared of you than you are of them!
